Hey guys I have a quick question why do the Patriots decide not to display the C for Captain on their jerseys? I'm pretty sure it has been answered already but I see every other team have the players with a C on their captains jerseys.

Later, when asked why the Patriots don't wear captains patches, Belichick tossed a little zinger at the NFL. "I guess that's another one of the new traditions in the league. I've seen a lot of football games, there has been football for a long time, and there have been captains with no patches and it seemed like everything was fine. I guess that's another one of our improvements, with the new overtime rules and all that."

Damn, Belichick is so awesome. He's the greatest troll in the history of sports, and a damn good coach on top of it :)

He's unpopular outside of NE fandom. But it has much to do with the ultra-feelings world we live in, where people need to worry more about self-esteem than results.

I love results. BB gets results. I don't care about people's feelings. Let's win. Hang up some points on Gibbs. Go for the TD instead of the FG on 4th down when we're up big. Let's not tell the media who is hurting where. Win.
