New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady knew some questions were coming about Alex Guerrero and Bill Belichick, and he used a lot of words to ultimately say nothing.
Brady was asked on Friday about the report from The Boston Globe’s Bob Holder that includes details about Guerrero’s tension with Belichick that led to the trainer being banned from the sidelines, and him no longer being allowed to treat any Patriots players at the team facility except Brady.
It was predictable that Brady wouldn’t give many specifics about what is going on between Guerrero and Belichick, but he moved around those questions like he was in the pocket sidestepping pass rushers. For example: Brady was asked what was his reaction when Belichick told him that Guerrero could no longer be on the sidelines.
“I don’t really agree with your question, so I don’t know what you’re talking about,” Brady said, via ESPN’s Mike Reiss. “How do you know what he said?”
Brady was then asked if The Globe report was inaccurate.
“I’m not saying anything,” Brady said, via Reiss. “How do you say that [Belichick] said anything? You don’t know anything about that.”
That was pretty solid press conference maneuvering by Brady. Instead of just saying “No comment,” he answered the question by simply questioning the validity of that question.
