Belichick On Manziel Report: ‘Talk To The Geniuses Online’
BOSTON (CBS) — Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is the first to admit that he isn’t very tech savvy when it comes to social media.
And we all benefit from the comedy that ensues.
Following the second and third rounds of the NFL Draft on Friday night, Belichick was asked about a possible scouting report by the Patriots on quarterback Johnny Manziel that was leaked online earlier in the day. The report (which many who cover the team say is fake) had some less than flattering things about the quarterback’s mental makeup.
When asked about it late Friday night, Belichick didn’t exactly deny it, but said he hasn’t seen it.
“With all due respect, I hate to admit this but I don’t think I’ve been online in a couple days or weeks or whatever, so that’s not really an important thing to me,’” said Belichick. “I don’t even know what’s online and what isn’t online. But I would say we probably have, I can’t even imagine, 10,000 pages of information. It’s a lot of information. There’s no way I can sit up here and tell you that I’ve read it all. I’ve read a fraction of it. But we have a ton of information on all the players that are in the draft.
“What’s online, you should go talk to the geniuses that are online,” he said, before breaking out one of his go-to’s in regards to social media. “MyFace, YourFace, InstantFace. Go talk to whoever you want that does that stuff. I don’t know.”
Just imagine what’s on Belichick’s “MyFace” page. We’re guessing it would have a lot of Bon Jovi photos.
