Bill Belichick‘s press conference this morning was must-see television as everyone sought answers in the New England Patriots’ DeflateGate scandal.
Of course, anyone who knows anything about the notoriously guarded coach understood we probably wouldn’t get much out of him.
Predictably, he turned into a child’s toy with a drawstring, repeating the same phrases over and over in the face of the media’s barrage.
To sum up: he’s told us everything he knows and he has no explanation for what happened.
“I’ve told you everything I know.” “I don’t have an explanation for what happened.” – Bill Belichik says each 4 times in news conference

Belichick also deflected some questions to Tom Brady, who will speak to the press this afternoon. Many are suggesting this was Ol’ Hoodie throwing Tommy Touchdown under the bus, but the idea these two haven’t huddled up to come up with a strategy for this thing is laughable.
They know exactly what they’re doing.
Also, it’s fantastic to see Marshawn Lynch’s media relations strategy catch on. Really appreciate the honesty and straightforwardness.
