How I waited in great anticipation for the greatest show of athleticism and strategy . . . only to have watched a disaster in the making. Click here for SI's Andrew Perloff's rundown of the Super Bowl Bust. Some have suggested that the XL stand for "eXtra Lousy." The highlight of Super Bowl XL was not even the game itself, but the pre-game interview/analysis with the head coach of the New England Patriots, Bill Belichick. Incredible look and listen into the mind of a master tactician and leader . . . the guy truly represents the deep thought and complexities of the game.
"I think coaching is getting the player to do the right thing in the right situation, and, make the right judgment . . . It's about decision-making. That's read, recognition, and decision-making."
