Bill Belichick still has nothing to say about Josh Gordon (beyond what he has said)

As Steve Burton of WBZ learned the hard way on Saturday night, Patriots coach Bill Belichick has nothing to add to the statement he issued earlier that day about the conditional reinstatement of receiver Josh Gordon. That didn’t stop reporters from trying to finagle more from Belichick during a Monday press conference.

“Yeah, I released a statement on that I have nothing to add to it,” Belichick said in response to the first Josh Gordon question.

Belichick then was asked to discuss whether Gordon arrived in good shape.

“Yeah, I think I’ve already covered all that,” Belichick said, before flashing a rare podium smile. “Did you get a copy of the statement?”

The reporter said he saw the statement on Twitter.

“Sorry, I mean, I don’t do MyFace,” Belichick said, dusting off his “take my wife, please” dismissive-of-social-media catch phrase, “but I mean we’re happy to give you a copy of it, it’s really — that’s where I’m at.”

Where Gordon is at is the non-football injury list. If he doesn’t pass a physical before August 31, he’ll end up on NFI for at least the first six weeks of the regular season.

  1. That is how all questions should be answered. Very clear and concise, no need to waste any extra time talking about it. I love it.

  2. As a Patriots fan, I am very hopeful, but this is clearly a “wait-and-see” situation with an almost day-to-day approach. It’d be great if he can stay in the game and stay healthy. Go Patriots!

  3. Josh will be activated on Friday after the Thursday night game is done….. he can’t play in it so they are focused on getting ready for the game on a short week…
    There is really NOTHING TO SEE HERE…..
    Josh is getting welcomed back behind closed doors, & reacclimatized to the program……
    All is good!!!

  4. Good response by Coach. With the way the media and lawyers can twist every little thing you say, nothing good can come of elaborating any further, what with HIPAA regulations and such.

  5. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Asking Belichick stupid questions is insanity.

  6. Josh Gordon is going to be fine. The Patriots owner Robert Kraft is taking him under his wing so he stays out of trouble off the field.

  7. Seriously what did the reporter expect to get out of this? Is he so young that he has never seen a BB press conference? He’s asking this question just days after the press release stating that [para] “we’ll have to see how this goes”.

  8. The NFL Network is big on top 10 countdowns. I would love to see a top 10 countdown of Bill B pressers, especially when a dumb question is asked. That would be TV worth watching.

    Yeah Mr Kraft has a knack or lending out a hand for those who are little tense.
