This would never happen in Foxboro...

Bill Belichick has dealt with his share of controversy and not-so amicable lines of questioning in Foxboro. From Spygate to Tom Brady's left knee to the pressure of a perfect season, he has managed to contain his composure unlike any other. Marvin Lewis is the head coach of the 2-11-1 Cincinnati Bengals. Dustin Dow of the Cincinnati Enquirer asked Lewis if the team won its final three games, (one already in the bank with their win over the Redskins), would it mean the team's heading in the right direction. This was the coach's response. (Courtesy, 700 WLW, Cincinnati) Backstory: Dow questioned the logic (read: sanity) of continuing to work out quarterback Carson Palmer (right elbow) and not placing him on injured reserve the rest of the season to protect one of only a handful of valuable players in the organization. Columnist Paul Daugherty then had this column about how Lewis blew it. And capping it off on this note, there's this from Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio on one of the best receivers in the game, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, who in many circles is compared favorably to Wes Welker.
