Bill Belichick on Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers: 'They both wear No.12'

Wednesday November 26th, 2014

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is not known for being very forthcoming with quotes for the press, so when a reporter inevitably asked him about the similarities between Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers in advance of the Green Bay Packers hosting New England on Sunday, the coach had a classic non-answer ready and waiting.

Belichick was obviously teasing here, but is it possible that the secret to the success of both quarterbacks this whole time has been their jersey number?

No, of course not. The secret to Brady's and Rodgers' success is being awesome at football.
