You can’t accuse Bill Belichick of being boring with the media anymore; he just needs the right target.
Last month, he happily took shots at some Carolina Panthers in defense of Randy Moss. Speaking Monday on WEEI, Belichick took aim at CBS analyst Charley Casserly.
Belichick was asked about Casserly’s report that Tom Brady was playing through three broken ribs.
“Who’s been wrong more than Charley Casserly since he left the Redskins? His percentage is like a meteorologist,” Belichick said.
“He has no relationship to this team. I’d say less than zero. Based on what? He’s never at a practice, never at a game,” Belichick said before getting into a discussion of sports media practices in general.
“At least he put his name on it which is more than a lot of guys. But, like he usually is, he was 100 percent wrong.”
Ouch. Well, at least Casserly got the Mario Williams pick right. That notwithstanding, it looks like Casserly won’t be taking the Floyd Reese route from the television studio to Foxborough.
