New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, in all his deadpan glory, answered a reporter Wednesday who asked him to name the similarities he sees between Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, with a simple “They both wear No. 12,” per ESPN’s Mike Reiss.
The classic Belichick response is of course not all the two QBs have in common, but we get Bill’s drift – what’s the point in all this… he’s got work to do before Sunday’s matchup between the two teams.
Brady was more in the mood to speak about Rodgers’ qualities:
“He’s phenomenal,” Brady said of Rodgers, per NFL.com’s Marc Sessler. “He’s just a great player. I always love watching him play, ’cause he does things a lot of guys in the league can’t do — that nobody can do, really, except him. For a quarterback, I really know how hard it is to do that, especially on a consistent basis, and he’s been as consistent as anybody that’s ever played the position. I got a lot of respect for him.”
