Holley, who had written previous books on Belichick and former Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona, began a new project involving Belichick, Dimitroff and Pioli. In the new book, “War Room: The Legacy of Bill Belichick and the Art of Building the Perfect Team,” Holley examines the player evaluation and drafting skills of all three, as well as their personal stories.
“I wanted to do something on these three guys,” said Holley. “I knew the depth of their relationship, especially between Dimitroff and Pioli, who considered themselves brothers after Thomas’ dad died.”

It’s the ACL curse of Arrowhead. Those poor Kansas City Chiefs. All the buzz from their 10-6 season last year took a dive as soon as their misbegotten 2011 began.

Then safety Berry added his season-ending ACL injury to the insult of their 41-7 loss to the Bills in Week 1. Worse yet, star running back Charles — second in rushing in the NFL last year — tore his ACL in Week 2. Not the way you want to start a year. “They had so many, and so early,” Carroll said.
