Sometimes the guy is actually pretty amusing.

Bill Belichick is known for his brilliant, scheming and, according to some people, evil ways. But despite rumors to the contrary, the man does have a heart.

Is there a more romantic way for a football coach to express love than naming a play after his girlfriend?

During the third quarter of Sunday night's Patriots-Broncos game, cameras caught Tom Brady yelling the following audible: "Cougar! Cougar! Linda!" On that play, Brady threw a touchdown pass to Rob Gronkowski.

Belichick's girlfriend is Linda Holliday.

Coincidence? Perhaps, but Belichick doesn't let anything past him. And it's doubtful that he or someone else would name a play 'Linda' without his approval. Plus, the fact that the word 'cougar' preceded Linda (she is 50, but doesn't look it) makes one wonder whether Belichick was behind the call. Technically, a cougar is an older woman with a fondness for younger men. Belichick is 61, so that might be an added layer of the coach's sardonic wit revealing itself.
