Microsoft releases statement in response to Bill Belichick's comments about Surface tablets

Here’s a sentence no one ever thought would be written: Technology giant Microsoft has released a statement to quell the flames from Bill Belichick’s remarks about one of their products. 

The Patriots coach went off on a lengthy tangent about the Microsoft Surface tablets Tuesday, a product that Belichick could be seen throwing during the team’s Week 4 contest against the Bills. He declared Tuesday that he would no longer use the Surface, saying he’s “done with tablets.”

“We respect Coach Belichick’s decision, but we stand behind the reliability of Surface,” Microsoft’s statement read. “We continue to receive positive feedback on having Surface devices on the sidelines from coaches, players and team personal across the league. In the instances where sideline issues are reported in NFL games, we work closely with the NFL to quickly address and resolve.”

The Patriots’ communications systems were not fully functioning sunday against the Bengals, with Belichick saying Tuesday that he’s cutting the Surface tablets out of his in-game plans. 

"As you probably noticed, I’m done with the tablets," Belichick said. "I’ve given them as much time as I can give them. They’re just too undependable for me. I’m going to stick with pictures as several of our other coaches do as well because there just isn’t enough consistency in the performance of the tablets. I just can’t take it anymore."

Michael Strahan says 'you’ve never lived unless you’ve hit Tom Brady'

Michael Strahan says 'you’ve never lived unless you’ve hit Tom Brady'

Michael Strahan cherished sacking Tom Brady. He embraced mere contact with the New England Patriots quarterback.

Strahan, who sacked Brady three times during his NFL career with the New York Giants, discussed how he felt when he got the opportuntiy to bring down Brady.

“You’ve never lived unless you’ve hit Tom Brady. Not just Brady but any quarterback," Strahan told WWD in a story published Wednesday. “Like, you hit a guy, hit a grown man, and you hear the life and the breath leave his body. There’s something very empowering about that. Then, you hit Brady, you sack him and you land on Brady. And you get up and you’re, like, ‘Boy, I see what Gisele is feeling. You know, I just laid down with Tom Brady. That was cool.'”

It sounds like Strahan may enjoy sacking Brady a little too much. But his abiltiy to get to Brady in the Super Bowl did help swing the result in the Giants' favor, so perhaps that's a part of why he has such fond memories of being atop Brady.
