Belichick debuts bye week hoodie

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Bill Belichick's choice of hoodie attire has long been a hot topic in New England, so the Patriots' coach raised a few eyebrows when he took the podium for the first of two bye week press conferences sporting a throwback hoodie with Pat Patriot on the right shoulder (image via Twitter.com/RealPatriots):

Asked if it was his "bye week" hoodie, Belichick smiled and noted, "Might be." When it was noted that we haven't seen that style from Belichick before, he quipped: "You don’t want to make it too popular and take over the gray one."
