Bill Belichick has finally spoken about the deflated football controversy from the AFC Championship game, and not surprisingly, he was shocked to learn about the under-inflated footballs and he has no explanation for what happened.
“I was shocked to learn of the news reports of the footballs, I had no knowledge of this whatsoever until Monday morning,” Belichick told the media mob. “I have no explanation for what happened. I’ve never touched a game ball. In my entire coaching career, I have never talked to any player, staff member about football air pressure. That is not a subject that I have ever brought up.”
Belichick did a terrific job passing the controversy on to his quarterback, Tom Brady. That’s where we’re headed next.
