In a shocking turn of events Thursday, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick declined to comment on the status of his starting quarterback Tom Brady’s right ankle! A move that appears as totally out of character for the Patriots coach, his simple declaration, “I don’t have any comment on it,” makes it look like he and his staff are guarding their collective hand (and ankles) quite closely.
Belichick gave a hint of things to come, saying that the pre-Super Bowl injury report would be released next Wednesday and he would be pleased to share information at that time.
Eerie foreshadowing or simply the party line? Time will tell, but no Patriot offered a definitive comment in any direction, generally sticking to the same “I don’t know, it’s not me, I’m not Tom Brady” bit. Sounds like a concerted effort to stick to the plan.
Brady’s supermodel girlfriend, Gisele Bundchen, was not available for comment –– it’s widely believed that she was remaining to be attractive at an unspecified location. Brady was walking into Bundchen’s New York apartment when the widely-distributed photographs of the Boot were taken.
