Belichick puts brakes on postseason personnel talk

FOXBORO -- Last week, Bill Belichick lauded Aqib Talib's work as a player and employee since Talib joined the Patriots in November.

But Belichick was steadfast about not entertaining case-by-case questions on which players he'd like to have back in 2013.

Talib and Wes Welker are two prominent players with expiring contracts. Belichick addressed their status, saying, "I would not make any decisions on any players into the future now. I just can't do it. There are too many factors, too many unknown things. All of the things I said about Aqib I meant and I still feel that way. Nothing has changed but I can't put unto place an entire plan for the team at this point in time. There's not enough information. It's too early.

"As much as you want to just go case-by-case and list each guy, what his deal is, there is some of that, no question," he acknowledged. "But at the same time, when you're trying to put together a team, you've got to look at the entire team before you just say, 'OK, well, we want to try to keep this guy. Well, we don't want to keep this guy. We Want to try to get somebody else or whatever.'

"You've got to look at the entire context and not just take it one guy, piece by piece," he concluded. "I don't think that's the way you put together an entire football team. You've got to see the big picture and how it all fits together."

Tom Brady’s annual attempt at making the collective testicles of New England draw up into its stomach has succeeded.

Brady posted on Instagram and Facebook a video (see below) of him skiing somewhere that we aren’t. He approaches a decent-sized jump, hits it, appears to stick the landing, blurts, “Whoa…” and then the camera shows an empty ski and a lifeless body. 

Actually, no lifeless body. Watched it a second time. No lifeless body.

Brady has graduated from sliding down waterslides and cliff-diving to this latest offseason effort to make sure everyone still cares about his safety.  

They do.

Next season, Russian Roulette.

If you french fry when you're supposed to pizza, you're gonna have a bad time! Trust me!!!
