Bill Belichick on Having Home-Field Advantage: ‘Go Ask Dallas And Kansas City’
New England Patriots Coach Bill Belichick is never one to give reporters a great sound-bite, mainly because he never speaks up and mumbles throughout his press conferences.
That changed on Wednesday when reporters asked him how important it was to have your home crowd behind you during a playoff game. While answering the question, he took a not so subtle shot at the Dallas Cowboys & Kansas City Chiefs, who were both eliminated at home.
Belichick when asked to discuss the importance of having the home crowd behind them: “I don’t know. Go ask Dallas and Kansas City.” …Oof.
