INDIANAPOLIS - Picked up pieces from a week in a sleepy town that somehow rivals New Orleans for best Super Bowl site ever.
■Any chance Bill Belichick retires as head coach of the Patriots after the game Sunday night? Tom Coughlin has been asked if he will retire and rejects the notion even though he is 65 years old and could probably walk off with a ticket to Canton. But what about the Hoodie? He turns 60 in April and could cap his 21st century dynasty with a fourth Super Bowl crown in 11 seasons. Belichick’s chipper comportment this week makes us wonder if he’s smelling the roses on his last go-around. What would be left to prove if he wins?
