In the wake of another Sunday’s Super Bowl loss, it’s easy to forget just what a fine coaching job Bill Belichick did with his Patriots in 2011.
Back in August, Ochocinco and Albert Haynesworth were considered the biggest additions to the Patriots roster. Instead, guys like Sterling Moore, Julian Edelman, Mark Anderson andBrandon Spikes played leading roles in New England’s AFC Championship season.
