Patriots’ Manziel Report Leaked, Belichick Has Hilarious Response

One of the biggest stories of the NFL Draft’s first round on Thursday was Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, considered by many to be the best QB prospect in his class, falling to number 22, where he was finally taken by the Cleveland Browns. Some of the reasons why Manziel fell that far may have been addressed in an internal scouting report from the Patriots that was published Friday morning by website BroBible.

The less-than-flattering report was apparently written by area scout James Liipfert, and it paints Manziel as an entitled, arrogant rich kid who doesn’t go to class or put in extra work at the gym. “Doesn’t study the game, said to know about 60% of the offense in ’12, never watches film,” it reads, before concluding that he “will never take football seriously enough for our coaching staff.”

On Friday night, general manager/head coach Bill Belichick gave a press conference in which the majority of the questions revolved around the Patriots’ drafting of Eastern Illinois QB Jimmy Garoppolo. But towards the end of the presser, a reporter asked him whether the leaked report was real and, if so, whether it bothered him that it had been made public, setting the stage for a classic Belichick response.

“With all due respect, I hate to admit this but I don’t think I’ve been online in a couple of days or weeks or whatever, so that’s not really an important thing to me. I don’t even know what’s online and what isn’t online. But I would say we probably have, I can’t even imagine, 10,000 pages of information. It’s a lot of information. There’s no way I can sit up here and tell you that I’ve read it all. I’ve read a fraction of it.

“But we have a ton of information on all the players that are in the Draft. What’s online, you should go talk to the geniuses that are online. I don’t know. MyFace, YourFace, InstantFace. Go talk to whoever you want that does that stuff. I don’t know.”
