What Belichek is doing is a bit more subtle than being nuts. You can look at the blizzard in two ways. It can be awful and something to be avoided -- "Why is coach making me practice in this? I just want to be home where it's warm. Ugh, let's just get through it." Or it can be viewed as a neutral circumstance or even a fun challenge -- "Hmmm, how can I keep from slipping on the snow ... How can I throw a football/punt/kick where I want it to go in this wind ... A bit of snow is no reason to break our discipline." If you can get your team to the second mindset, you've built resilience. And a resilient team is less likely to fold in a game when the going gets tough. So it may seem like nuts, but it also can be an opportunity to use an unusual circumstance to build an incremental advantage. Given the same opportunity, what would you do?

He's at the point where, like in "Being There", it's assumed everything he does or says is more brilliant than what anyone else does.

I was kind of hoping the thread title was referring to the blizzard of scrutiny triggered by today's espn article about his team. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/page/hotread180105/beginning-end-new-england-patriots-robert-kraft-tom-brady-bill-belichick-internal-power-struggle
