There will be plenty of people in Massachusetts rooting for the Packers in Super Bowl XLV Sunday, and not just because they want Green Bay to deny Ben Roethlisbe

No one knows what Tom Brady and Bill Belichick want in a wide receiver more than Troy Brown.

Learning from losses. It’s something the Patriots have done each season since Bill Belichick has been in charge down in Foxboro. For a championship-driven franchise, falling short of a Super Bowl title is a bitter pill.

It was somewhere between the third or fourth missed tackle from Bart Scott and the crushing hit that Mark Sanchez took just before the end of the first half before the realization started to set in: After an emotionally draining win over the Pat

Trying to determine the legacy of the 2010 Patriots is a complicated process. Did they fall short of their ultimate goal, victims of the lofty standards set by their predecessors? Or were they dynamic overachievers, surpassing the expectations that pundits put on them at the start of the season?

FOXBORO — The whole thing felt more than a little like the final day of school: Lockers were being cleaned out, guys were saying goodbye and making plans to meet up soon. All that was missing was someone passing around a yearbook to sign.

FOXBORO — Down the tunnel they came, one after the other, happy Jets’ players making airplane noises. With their arms outstretched, they pretended to fly from the field to the tunnel to the locker room, singing and laughing.

The Jets’ defense is known as a fast, aggressive, blitzing group. But in truth, the perception is different than reality, especially when it comes to facing the Patriots as of late.

The Patriots live by a series of core beliefs: Don’t believe the hype. Stay hungry and stay humble. Do your job. Well done is better than well said.

Don’t suggest to Patriots coach Bill Belichick that the first two games New England and New York played earlier this season will have much of an effect on the third game, set for Sunday at Gillette Stadium.

FOXBORO — The first real indication that 14-2 might be truly in the rearview came Wednesday morning with a film session that was more critical than anything Roger Ebert could have dreamed up.

So much of the success of this year’s Patriots team has been a multigenerational effort, with rookies and second-year players meshing well with established veterans. It’s produced a 14-2 regular-season record and the top seed in the AFC playoff race.

Rest versus rust. It’s an age-old debate that’s been faced by every NFL team that’s locked into a playoff spot before the end of the regular season. Do you give your starters the week off, resting them ostensibly to keep them healthy for the postseason?
