When Bill Belichick doesn’t want to talk about something, he doesn’t talk about it.
This isn’t groundbreaking news for anyone who has ever listened to the New England Patriots head coach’s press conferences before. Belichick has become notorious for being tight-lipped, forward-thinking and maybe, at times, coming off a bit grumpy.
So, when he was asked about his team’s Week 17 loss to the Miami Dolphins ahead of the playoffs beginning on Saturday, Belichick shrugged and quickly shot the question down.
“I don’t know what we are or aren’t, doesn’t matter,” he responded to the notion that the Patriots may be underdogs this weekend. “We’re just trying to get ready for the Titans [and] play our best game on Saturday night. That’s it.”
When pressed, the coach continued by saying that the team is “past last week.”
