IF NEW ENGLAND coach Bill Belichick really hates the way Tim Tebow plays, he has a funny way of showing it. The Patriots reportedly are signing the former Jets and Broncos quarterback to a contract and expect him in minicamp today. ESPN.com and NFL.com, citing league sources, reported the news yesterday, the same day the Patriots announced they had released backup quarterback Mike Kafka. The websites reported Tebow was being brought in to play quarterback. CBSSports.com, however, citing a source, reported that he will play tight end. Tom Brady is, of course, the starting QB. His backup is Ryan Mallett.

ONE OBLIGATION as head coach at the University of Oregon used to be a big weekly midweek luncheon attended by some of the football program's most ardent alumni and supporters. It required a trip of about 1 1/2 hours each way, some handshakes, a little speech, a brief Q-and-A. I say used to be, because Chip Kelly put an end to it during his tenure there. Instead, he attended the luncheon via videophone, gaining 3 hours of planning, film viewing. What he didn't gain was any goodwill from those ardent supporters, but if we have learned anything about the man thus far, it is that Chip Kelly is not too keen on Dale Carnegie.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - To hear Bill Belichick glumly address reporters on Monday, you'd think the Houston Texans blew New England out in the regular season - and not the other way around. "There were several things in that game that went our way, but I don't think that's really that significant at this point," the Patriots coach said in a conference call. "I don't think you can overanalyze that game. " The Patriots beat the Texans, 42-14, on Dec. 10, when Tom Brady threw four touchdown passes.

PATRIOTS linebacker Brandon Spikes isn't hiding his disdain for the NFL's replacement refs. After Sunday night's 31-30 loss to the Ravens - which featured 24 accepted penalties, including a league-record 13 that resulted in first downs - Spikes took to Twitter to blast the men in the striped shirts, writing: "Can someone please tell these [bleeping] zebras Footlocker called and they're needed Back at work!!!!" No word on whether the NFL will take action against Spikes, but the league is reviewing tape that shows his coach, Bill Belichick, physically grabbing a referee after the game to try to ask if the game-winning field goal by Justin Tucker - which narrowly went through the uprights as time expired - had been reviewed.

NEW ENGLAND Patriots coach Bill Belichick confirmed that Josh McDaniels will be the team's offensive coordinator next season. McDaniels was brought in during the playoffs to serve as an offensive assistant. He was widely seen as the heir to offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien, who had been hired to replace Joe Paterno at Penn State. But it wasn't official until Belichick confirmed the move yesterday, a day after the Patriots lost to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, 21-17.

INDIANAPOLIS - Bill Belichick gave clear instructions to his defensive unit: Let the runner score. Playing the odds and inviting critics, the calculating coach of the New England Patriots told his players to get out of the way, open a wide path for Ahmad Bradshaw and give Tom Brady a chance to win the Super Bowl in the final 57 seconds. Unusual? Certainly. Crazy? Not at all. The strategy failed, and the New York Giants won, 21-17, on Sunday night. But Belichick was certain it gave the Patriots their best opportunity.

INDIANAPOLIS - Tom Brady's two long incompletions in the final minutes, and several missed chances throughout the game cost the New England Patriots a chance at another Super Bowl victory. It also resulted in their second loss to the New York Giants in the big game in five seasons, 21-17, last night. "We just came up a little bit short," Brady said. "There were some missed opportunities out there. It was a very hard-fought game. We fought 'til the end. I'm very proud of that.

INDIANAPOLIS - Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez provide more than just a clever nickname, although "The Boston TE Party" is rather catchy. Those Patriots are the most productive tight end tandem in NFL history, the epitome of the evolution at the position and perhaps the No. 1 reason New England is back in the Super Bowl this year. Whether they influence Sunday's game against the New York Giants is another matter because there might not be a they in five days. Gronkowski has a high ankle sprain, and even if he plays - as many say he will, including him - there is doubt as to how effective he will be. "It's getting annoying," Gronkowski said after he was asked, literally, for the 20th time about the left ankle he sprained in the AFC championship.

INDIANAPOLIS - They're baaaacck. Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have returned to the Super Bowl, and once again the New England Patriots quarterback and head coach are a victory away from adding their names to the record books. They've already made their mark in the NFL, obviously, and will set at least another at kickoff by becoming the starting quarterback-coach tandem with the most Super Bowl appearances, with five. But Brady and Belichick struck out at matching the four Super Bowl titles of quarterbacks Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw and coach Chuck Noll the last time they made it to the NFL final.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Season opener or Super Bowl, every game is a big game to Bill Belichick. His consistent approach to preparation for the next opponent, whether a powerhouse or a pushover, is the cornerstone of the coaching that has brought the New England Patriots to their fifth Super Bowl in 11 years. The more intense the practices, the more prepared his players are for the game. "You know what to expect week-in and week-out with him," wide receiver Matthew Slater said.
