Love him or hate him, and as outlandish and stupid as this hypothetical question is, how would you feel if it was proven that Bill Belichick intentionally manipulated a season long campaign with his good buddy Chad Ochocinco to portray a false sense of ineptitude so that during the Superbowl Ocho would be considered an afterthought, allowing him to have 150 yards and 3TDs, securing the victory?

Best long con in the NFL since the "friendship" between Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens.

Can you imagine the discussion that took place during the final 2 minute warning of the AFC championship game? It's 3rd and 5, all the pats need is a first down to clinch the Superbowl.

Ocho: Let me just catch the first down, Coach!
Bill: Not yet, Chad, not yet.

I would feel that the Bill is an asshat. Just like I do now.

Obviously a silly hypothetical but here's an honest answer, if that is the case: it would be stupid. The Pats and Ravens game was too close to hold Ocho back. and even if he had a big game in the AFC championship the Giants wouldn't play him any differently. They would just think he had a lucky game. So Bellichick would have risked the entire season while keeping an ace in his pocket.

Ocho has said he does not know the playbook... 16 games and you can't learn it? How F'n dumb are you? Cut the second they win. And not a con and he will not even see one thrown his way.

Wouldn't it be more like 3 or 4 seasons long?

I watched that Football Life special on Belichick on the NFL Network last night and I think I have a new found respect for him. Say what you want about Spygate (my feeling is all teams cheat at some point -- some are just better at hiding), but the guy is a football genius. Something like this would not remotely surprise me. I wouldn't care either way but I think I'd get a good laugh out of it.

I agree. To use a film analogy, he's the Scorsese of football.
