FOXBORO -- Friday afternoon, a scouting report on Johnny Manziel purportedly produced by a Patriots scout was leaked.
Asked Friday night about the veracity of this classified information on perhaps the draft’s most discussed player, Bill Belichick’s answer boiled down to this… “Manziel scouting report? Internet? I don’t understand the words that are coming out of your mouth.”
Here was the reply from the Patriots head coach when asked about the report by’s Mike Reiss.
“With all due respect, I hate to admit this but I don’t think I’ve been online in a couple days or weeks or whatever, so that’s not really an important thing to me,” Belichick said. “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.”
So the official word on the Manziel report is that it’s hard to keep track of all the papers, and maybe they just were left on a lunch counter or something. Who knows?
Got it.
