Belichick hasn’t lost his mind

The New England Patriots traded quarterback Matt Cassel to the Kansas City Chiefs for an early, second-round draft pick this weekend. If you listen to some of the chattering class of reporters/analysts, this is apparently because Bill Belichick became a non-competitive idiot overnight and wouldn’t accept better trade offers.

There are a lot of people around the NFL who speak with such certainty on subjects that they can make anything sound believable. Pull it off long enough and you can make a good buck doing it.
Then there’s logic, reason and common sense.
In this case you can believe one of two scenarios:

1. Someone’s anonymous source alleging that Belichick, for inexplicable reasons, turned down superior deals. (It might be worth considering someone’s track record with anonymous sources when considering this scenario.)
