Candid Belichick Trashes Tablets [VIDEO]
Reporters and fans of the New England Patriots were met with something they weren’t accustomed to with Patriots’ Head Coach Bill Belichick; the man being open and personal.
Belichick began his Tuesday teleconference by announcing an addition to the team, his granddaughter Blakely Rose before moving on to talking about the next match-up with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The coach also criticized the Microsoft Tablets that the teams across the league have used and said that he will be moving forward without them. Belichick has battled in the past with the tablets and the products working effectively at times.
“They’re just too undependable for me,” said Belichick during the teleconference. "I've given them all I can give them. I just can't take it anymore." The Pats will go back to the paper printouts for the remainder of the season according to Belichick and team sources.
Other noteworthy news from the teleconference included the update on Dion Lewis, who will likely take at least another week before being back on the gridiron.
Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin also announced today that Ben Roethlisberger will be out this week and Landry Jones is set to start versus the Pats. The game is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.
