On a scale of Rex Ryan to Shecky Greene, it probably doesn’t register.
But Patriots coach Bill Belichick can occasionally fire off a one-liner, and it’s possible that their scarcity makes them seem funnier than they actually are.
According to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com, Belichick was in a good mood today, and was able to work in a dig with a joke when asked about his time in Cleveland.
Asked if he had a personal affinity for the Browns organization after his five years as a head coach there, Belichick initially steered it back to the present.
“”I was there for five years. Those were five important years in my life — for myself and my family and all that,” he said. “But obviously, we’ve all moved on and I have a job to do here, and that’s where my loyalty is — to Robert [Kraft] and the Patriots organization and this football team. It’s no different than how I feel, honestly, about [previous stops] the Colts or the Lions, or the Broncos, . . .
“I feel differently about the Jets. We won’t put them in that category.”
Hey, yo. Bill will be here all week.
He said to try the veal.
