A lot of the sports columnists are talking about smart football crediting the Pats with tactical skills more than passing, running and play making. Similarly, clock management is an example of things the Pats do right. New England knows how to run down the clock before scoring so that the other team doesn't have the time to catch up and score. The Pats never give up on developing new plays which denies opponents any chance to prepare. Bellacheet knows the game and how to apply it. Smart.

That is one thing no one can take away from Bellacheet... he is a football genius. It is very rare for one of his teams to make mistakes with time management, or fundamentals. And every playoff game they talk about plays he pulled out that hadn't been used in the reg season. Not being a student of the game I can only take the analysts' words for it, but if that's true, it's another example of genius.


KC had the game won, on an apparent interception, only to be called back when a player lined up several *feet* across the line on defense. Not inches, but feet. It was so obvious, no ref could ignore it (ok, KC didn't get the benefit of the New Orleans ref team). It must happen at some point in the season, but this is not the type of mistake I would associate with a Bellacheet team. Ever.

I dislike the Boston Globe but their sports section is better than the rest of the paper because there are no politics in the sports section. Recently they have been lauding Gronkowski's contributions and they are right. There has also been mention of out-of-contract incentives in the salary for reaching a certain pass catching yardage, or extra efforts. Lousy example: receiver exceeds catching more than five passes and he gets an extra $20,000 in his stocking beyond the contractual four million. Sumpinlikethat.

Yesterday's Super bowl sendoff at Foxboro was a wildly successful event. Media says there were 35,000 fans there. People were there at 5:00 AM in the cold and waited for six hours to cheer them. I guess Boston is a big sports town. They watch sports when not shooting their neighbors.

Heard on the radio this morning that Tom Brady is having major surgery after the Super Bowl.
He's having a 6th finger added to his hand so can wear all six Super Bowl rings on one hand..

Good article on Bellicheet today:


How shapeshifter Bill Belichick has beaten a league built for parity for 18 years

That is the funniest thing I've read in some time. My pants will never dry.

I'll tell ya the media is sure lauding the Pats org from Kraft, Belichick to Brady. They are going to puke if the Pats lose. Sunday night, after the game starts, there will be no cars on the road east of the Hudson River. There is a big party at our house meeting at 4:30. Hope I don't get plastered before the game even starts.

What kind of surprises me is the high level of support the Pats are getting from formerly adverse sources. The Pats simply have it all. In some ways that takes the fun out of football.

Locally, RI now has sports betting at the local casino and everybody is betting on football. What is happening is the bet is determined by the point spread. (I really don't know what I'm talking about.) But people love sports betting and the state gets a chunk of the action and the state is really making money. Even during the week you can't get a seat in the lounge where the sports betting is going on. We just play blackjack but we hear the talk.

One can hope but I'm thinking a similar score but think the Pats will pull it out 31-27

Playing blackjack at the casino yesterday we stopped at the sports betting room to check it out, see what it is all about. There was a 200 foot line of people waiting to go in to bet. You can bet on anything - spread, completed passes, coin toss -- if you can think of something, anything, you can bet on it. I don't know why this Super-bowl is bigger that the others but it seems like there is more interest this year.

Did you see where some judge threw out a suit to have the New Orleans game replayed? Saints fans are livid! You want to puke every time they show that non-call call. That official no doubt is going to be looking for a job.

Boston and Los Angeles have history. past and recent. Lakers
/Celtics one of the biggest rivalries in sports. The world series wound has not healed for many out here.

That no call was irrelevant because the ball was tipped at the line. PI can't be called on a tipped ball. Roughing the passer call against Chiefs defender on Brady was also terrible. Rams will win. Listen to me I'm the Guru.
