New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick was mic’ed up during their victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Belichick was overly complimentary about Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers during the week. He didn’t seem so complimentary about him during the game.
Belichick was seen talking to his defensive front and telling them to keep after Rodgers. Belichick implored them, saying Rodgers had already tried to throw the Patriots two interceptions and that they would get one yet. They didn’t. Rodgers didn’t throw a pick on the night and he only got sacked once.
However, Belichick tells his charges: “He’s just lobbing it up there,” when talking about Rodgers. Was Rodgers lobbing it up there? Shit, I don’t know. I don’t recall him lobbing anything. Maybe that’s just me though.
What I do know is Belichick mentions the Packers guards here. The Packers guards are Lane Taylor and Byron Bell. Here’s what I know about those two guys. They’re shit. Total garbage. Every time Aaron Rodgers gets hurried, hit or sacked, you can usually look at Lane Taylor. If not, you can look at Byron Bell or, let’s be honest, that turd Bryan Bulaga. David Bakhtiari and Corey Linsley are more than holding their own.
At any rate, the Packers need to do something about that in the offseason. Or they could just start the guy who is probably their best guard, Justin McCray, one of these weeks. He hasn’t started since getting injured in week 3. For what reason? It seems because he got injured. Another solid decision by Gravy Head.
Anyway, here’s Grumblelord talking down QB1.
Coach Belichick wired is 👏👏👏

Also, this was brought up to me yesterday. Have you ever seen Mike McCarthy interact with his players that way?
