    Tiquan Underwood might want to visit another barber — and fast.
    In a surprising move just hours before he was to join his New England teammates in Super Bowl XLVI, Underwood — who recently had the Patriots' logo buzz-cut into his retro 1980s-style hairdo — was cut from the roster Saturday and replaced by practice-squad defensive end Alex Silvestro.
    Both are Rutgers products.
    Published reports said there were no disciplinary reasons behind the move — that it was just a cold, hard football decision by cold, calculating coach Bill Belichick to give the Pats an extra defender for Sunday's game against the New York Giants.

    My best friend is a Pats fan, and I just talked to him about this. What he said: It's his understanding that Underwood still gets a ring if they win, still gets a game check, and the reason for the late move is so the Giants couldn't make a counter-move and grab a guy who might know the Patriots game plan, because you can't do that within 24 hours.

    I haven't confirmed any of this (it might not be right), but that's what he's hearing out in the Patriots community.

    The optics of it are disastrous, though, because all people see is a guy getting let go on the eve of the game of his life, after all the practices are in the can and nothing's left to do but eat breakfast. It just looks so bad.

    Glad the Pats lost. They deserved it.

    Yeah, but I still say Eli's not elite. That SB proved that football is a TEAM SPORT. And that an elite offense/QB is not enough to win a Championship.
    DEFENSE matters.

    Eli's receivers are elite, that's for sure. Nicks, Cruz and Manningham were the best WRs throughout the playoffs.
