Hall of Fame TE and CBS studio analyst Shannon Sharpe gave a stinging criticism of New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick after the coach blew off a postgame interview after last night's AFC Championship Game.

The Patriots were represented by DB Devin McCourty instead. Belichick did, however, speak at the podium later on.

"There's something to be said about being gracious in defeat," Sharpe said on the air, as per USA Today. "We've seen the New England Patriots five times in the last 12 years be victorious. And we've seen the opposing coaches that lost come out and speak to our Steve Tasker. Coach Cowher did it when they lost. We saw this last week (after New England defeated Houston)....Bill Belichick makes it very easy for you to root against the Patriots. You can't be a poor sport all the time. You're not going to win every time. And he does this every time he loses. It is unacceptable."

The Super Bowl traditionally comes with tons of backstories. New England head coach Bill Belichick and his aura are always prevalent when the Patriots are involved in the big game. But since he'll be facing the Giants again - the organization that launched his career, the organization in which he earned his first two Super Bowl rings with and the organization that derailed his most recent run at a championship - there's non-stop copy to be had.

This latest chapter has the Giants and Belichick crossing paths again. The Patriots last lost on Nov 6th - to the Giants, 24-20. They've won ten straight games since then. The Giants are in standing in BB's way, undaunted and not intimidated one bit.

The Daily News Live roundtable discusses the aura of Bill Belichick not intimidating the New York Giants.

Patriots' coach Bill Belichick know a few things about great defenses having been in the Giants' DC during Lawrence Taylor's heyday. Yesterday, he held nothing back when talking about the Giants' current pass-rushers: Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck, Dave Tollefson, Mathias Kiwanuka and the rising Jason Pierre-Paul..

"Most times a team may have one player that is the caliber of a rusher that you have to game plan for but the Giants have about five of them. They have so many guys and they are all very good. They have great speed and athleticism, great pass rush technique, they get off on the ball well, they are a hard group to block. Perry does a good job of scheming and putting them in different positions so you don?t know where Pierre-Paul is going to be or Tuck or Kiwanuka. Sometimes it is hard to find them and it is hard to block them so they present a huge challenge just in their depth, quality and speed. It is as good of a group as I have seen in a long time."

The WheelHouse debates whether or not the Giants' defensive line will give Tom Brady and the Patriots issues this coming Sunday:

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin and Bill Belichick of the Patriots have known each other for over two decades. They have both been around for what seems like forever. When you think about it in football terms, they have. This week, the two coaching veterans face off against each other for only the fourth time.

Belichick leads all active NFL coaches in total victories with 182. Coughlin is third with 146 (Washington's Mike Shanahan is second with 163.) They are the standard for NFL coaches and are revered by players, peers and yes, each other.

The New York Post's Burt Hubbuch has an article up suggesting that many of the team's offseason moves--the acquisition of troublemakers like Chad Ochocinco (WR) and Albert Haynesworth (DT), the pick-up of two former Jets defensive players in James Ihedigbo and Shaun Ellis--are coming in response to his 28-21 loss to the Jets in last season's playoffs.

The article makes the case the the Ochocinco and Haynesworth moves in particular are very uncharacteristic of the coach. Belichick's Patriots are a straight-laced bunch. Last season, Randy Moss was cut as soon as he made waves in the locker room. Chasing outsize personalities seems almost like an act of desperation. As Hubbuch points out, the Pats have been 2-3 in the playoffs since they were caught spying in 2007.

This is all despite Belichick publicly denying his moves have any specific meaning (as he would):

Former Giants QB and CBS game analyst Phil Simms held court backstage before Sunday's 25th Anniversary celebration commemorating the team's Super Bowl XXI victory over Denver.

Simms was the MVP of that game, going 22-for-25 passing with 3 TDs and was the first player to utter the phrase "I'm going to Disneyland (World)".

After this session I spoke with Simms about that picture-perfect day and his near-perfect game:

This Sunday at theMeadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, NJ, approximately 60 Giants players and coaches will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Giants Super Bowl XXI championship team.

The coach of that team, of course, was the now legendary Bill Parcells, who spoke with Giants play-by-play man Bob Papa and select Giants season ticket holders today via conference call.

Parcells was a defensive coach his whole career and rarely got involved in the offensive game plan. He didn't have to. He had Phil Simms, another Giants legend, at the helm.

The Pro Bowl is back in Hawaii this year after last year's ill-fated experiment to play it in the Super Bowl host city the week before the Super Bowl.

The NFL's version of their All-Star game had been played in Honolulu from 1980-2009 and had become a tradition of sorts. Both fans and players were not pleased with the site change.

Last year's game, played in Miami the week before the Super Bowl, was sparsely attended. The league will continue to hold the game the Sunday in-between the conference championships and the Super Bowl as opposed to the week after the Super Bowl.
