Belichick on NBC Super Bowl Pregame

Michael Holley on WEEI today has stated that Patriots coach Bill Belichick will be a part of NBC’s Super Bowl coverage, doing a segment breaking down the Pittsburgh and Arizona defenses with Cris Collinsworth during the pregame show.

It hasn’t officially been anounced by NBC yet, but Belichick has done this sort of thing before, appearing as part of the coverage of the Steelers/Seahawks Super Bowl a couple of years back.

This is the ultimate dilemma. Of course fans want the Red Sox to win the World Series, but the dilemma is be careful what you wish for because you might get it. And if the Red Sox played the Cubs in the World Series, one of those two franchises will be permanently and forever altered. One of them will never be the same. So remember, while winning is the ultimate goal. If you’re a Sox fan or a Cubs fan, it carries a steep price tag. Life will never be the same.

    Again, somewhere, Mike Lynch is seething: “I SHOULD BE DOING THIS! NO ONE GETS TO GO OVER X’S AND O’S WITH BILL BUT ME!!! And if he uses that damned telestrator, I’ll kill him when we start doing Patriots All-Access again. Oh wait…never mind.”

    Belichick’s commentary before Super Bowl LX was excellent. Insight, wry humor, and called the winner (or got about as close to picking as you might expect, but definitely gave Steelers the edge).
    Reacted with light-hearted but genuine horror when Mike Tirico suggested he might have a future in TV. Very winning appearance all around.

    Will the segment be live or on video?

    This is pretty cool. I look forward to it.
