Friday was a tough day for New England Patriots fans.

First, ESPN’s Seth Wickersham published a lengthy piece detailing a significant rift within the Patriots, one that could result in the breakup of perhaps the greatest dynasty in NFL history. Then, the New York Daily News’ Gary Myers reported that Bill Belichick “sees an opening” to coach the New York Giants.

And while there probably is some truth to the information in Wickersham’s story, surely Myers’ report is far-fetched, right?
