Head coach Bill Belichick is a man of a few words, but he sure knows how to respond to every comment others make. Belichick is pretty open to the media and everyone loves his short answers. Well, some are frustrated with his non-revealing answers. But, people got used to that and there isn’t much we can do about it.
Will Belichick turn a new leaf in 2021? The Patriots head coach addressed the media on Thursday afternoon. He had his pre-draft media session and answered questions about the upcoming draft. Belichick is more than impressed with the quarterback class in 2021. His exchange with Dan Roche of WBZ caught everyone’s attention.
Roche was getting ready to ask Belichick a question and he first asked how he was doing. Belichick said he was “good” and asked Roche the same. The WBZ reporter had “no complaints,” and Belichick made everyone laugh.
“That’s good. We don’t want to hear them anyway,” he said and put a big smile on his face.
Bill Belichick has the right moment
Of course, Belichick was poking fun at the reporter. They have spent a lot of time together and Belichick was more than thrilled to speak with reporters again.
“It’s been a while since we’ve been together. I hope everyone is doing well. It’s nice to see a lot of familiar faces here,” he said, per ESPN’s Mike Reiss.
The Patriots get to choose from a talented group of players. New England will probably address the quarterback issue in the upcoming draft. Trevor Lawrence, Mac Jones, Justin Fields… There are so many options right now and Belichick will make the right decision. He always does.
“As always, there’s some interesting players,” Belichick said. “When you look at the players at that position, I think you see a lot of differences in the 2020 season. A lot of it is by conference, but there are some other circumstances as well. An interesting class.”
Let’s see how will things go in the next few weeks. Belichick is in the middle of a big decision-making process.
