Bill Belichick pulled a move out of the George Costanza playbook and left on a high note during a Wednesday morning’s press conference.
With LeGarrette Blount out with the season-ending hip injury he suffered during Sunday’s win over the Texans, the Patriots could use another running back. New England is reportedly interested in ex-Falcon Steven Jackson, according to reports, but Belichick isn’t keen on discussing the matter.
Instead, like a “Seinfeld” scene right out of Mr. Kruger’s office, the Patriots coach decided to exit stage left when Jackson was mentioned.
“Do we want to end on a high note?” Belichick asked the media as a smile creeped across his face.
A reporter starts to mention Jackson again and Belichick cuts him off — “Let’s just end on a high note.”
Then he’s gone.
Belichick might have an extremely dry sense of humor but clearly he has one; and let’s not forget his “My Cousin Vinny” reference during a Deflategate press conference earlier this year.
