New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is not known for being forthcoming, but after Monday night's blowout loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, he has decided to really shut out the media, just uttering the same phrase over and over.
The Boston Globe published a transcript of the press conference and it is truly a masterpiece of avoidance.
Q: Is it difficult to react to the adversity of Monday night, and get back on track for Sunday?
A: We’re on to Cincinnati.
Q: You mentioned Tom’s age at the draft…
A: (interrupting) We’re on to Cincinnati.
Q: Do you think having a 37-year old…
A: (interrupting) We’re on to Cincinnati. It’s not about the past, it’s nothing about the future, it’s right now we’re preparing for Cincinnati.
Q: Do you feel the talent you have is good enough…
A: We’re trying to get ready to play Cincinnati.
Q: Have you done enough to help Tom Brady…
A: (interrupting) We’re getting ready for Cincinnati. That’s what we’re doing.
In case you were wondering, the Patriots are playing the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday.
The press conference was so absurd as the reporters repeatedly failed to get Belichick to slip up, that Belichick's rival, Rex Ryan, took the opportunity to get a shot in later in the day.
