Steve Tasker of CBS Sports joined Felger and Massarotti on Radio Row in New Orleans to discuss being snubbed by Bill Belichick after the AFC Championship Game. Or, was he?

“Bill doesn’t owe me anything. We knew he wasn’t going to do it on Friday. He didn’t stand us up,” Tasker told Felger and Mazz. “We asked him in our production meeting, ‘Bill, if you win you get the trophy presentation and all of that. If you lose, I’ll be outside the locker room and we’ll want to talk to you then.’ He was like, ‘I don’t do that very well. We’ll see.'”

While Shannon Sharpe strongly argued that Belichick was being a poor sport in defeat, Tasker said he took nothing personally by Belichick’s skipping the postgame interview.

“Bill’s in the conversation for the best head coach of his generation. He’s only 60. When it’s all said and done, he may be in the conversation for the best of all time,” Tasker said. “So if at the end of it, he’s a bad postgame interview, OK. I don’t have a problem with it.”
