The latest news on one of the most talked-about ankles in Super Bowl history is a mixed bag, but on the whole the updates do seem to be progressing well for the Patriots.
Watching football is good for three things: drinking, gambling, and having something to do on Sunday nights.
Thankfully, Super Bowl Sunday is the perfect combination of all three.
And what fun is it to just sit around and drink casually on your own terms? Why not have a little fun with it?
When the New England Patriots take the field versus the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, several of the same names, players, and stars from their first Super Bowl encounter, Super Bowl XLII, will be back.
But perhaps not as many as you think.
The New England Patriots are in the Super Bowl. It will be the fifth time they have participated in the Big Game with Bill Belichick as their coach, yet another bullet point on his Hall of Fame-ready resume.
Belichick is known for being a defensive wizard. He earned such a reputation as Bill Parcells’ defensive coordinator, cemented it by stopping the “Greatest Show on Turf” for his first Super Bowl win, and has maintained it despite the Patriots becoming much more offensively oriented over the last several seasons.
The only true black mark on Belichick’s resume is his tenure in Cleveland. Belichick went 36-44 and made just one playoff appearance. However, to anyone who says his tenure in Cleveland was a waste of time, I present the following video as evidence to the contrary.
This past weekend featured two highly anticipated quarterback matchups – Brady v Tebow and Manning v Rodgers – and a third that unexpectedly ended up being the most thrilling of the weekend – Brees v Smith. And as quarterbacks are wont to do after competing on the field of football battle, these duos all met at midfield after the game for quick makeout sessions in front of the leering press.
