Bill Belichick is very familiar with the Pittsburgh Steelers. In his 40-plus years coaching, Belichick has developed an affinity for the Steelers franchise. The head coach used his Friday, 9:15 a.m. press conference to deliver an epic, 30-minute media availability, consisting mainly of a Pittsburgh history lesson.
Belichick took the love affair to a new level on Sunday afternoon.
