... final play of the game, Pats attempting the game winning field goal, Brady takes the snap, comes out of the crouch, wheels left and hits a streaking Chad Ochocinco down the sideline for the score ... the crowd goes wild.

... it is now just one step closer to reality, gentlemen ... I knew it, I knew it, Belicheck was gonna' somehow use Ochocinco in this game ... expect the unexpected from 'Wild' Bill ...

It's far from heartless, Underwood will still get a game check and ring if the Pats win. It's calculated, like everything Belicheck does.

Still if that happened to me, I would be heart-broke, to think I got to make it all of the way to the SB and not get to play. Belicheck has ice in his veins if he wasn't a coach he would be a heartless serial-killer just glad he knows football. The Mad-Hoodie thats a fitting name.

I honestly believe so too... and have had this scenario play out in my head a few months back. Though I thought it would have been sooner in the playoffs.

Underwood wasn't going to make an impact in this game. Belichick has been manipulating the waiver wire system all year to work in his favor. He'll cut a player one week one to re-sign him the week after to take advantage of match ups and work the depth chart for game to game in his favor. This isn't shocking... at least they let him experience the whole week of the Superbowl festivities. He'll still get a ring... and hell, he'll probably be re-signed again for next year unless he goes and follow his old college coach.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

This game isn't about being sweet and nice to everyone. Its about winning it all.

If Bill thinks his team has a better shot with a back-up D-lineman over a back-up WR then I have no problem with that.

LoL! So you think Belichek's career path would have been 'Hannibal Lecter' if he hadn't become a football coach?

NFL is a heartless sport...........Tear your knees up and your gone. Look at Manning, top QB in the league. Someone you would not dare to trade or get rid of. Only takes a year for you to be here then gone in the NFL.
