As today goes along, I will post a number of “Super Bowl 46 QuickNotes” as information is disseminated from the reporters in Indianapolis.
On ESPN, Ed Werder just reported that Chad Ochocino, who has done very little in two playoff games this year – even being inactive for one of them, will be active for Super Bowl 46 and is expected to have opportunities to make plays.
This comes on the heels of the Patriots’ surprising release of Tiquan Underwood last night. Werder says that no one on the Patriots is upset with the decision, noting their trust in Bill Belichick to fulfill his ultimate responsibility to put the team in the best position to win. Belichick wanted more defensive line depth, and Underwood was expected to be inactive anyway, so the move was made.
