Jerry Thornton joins Mike Giardi and Lou Merloni on Sports Tonight to give his take on the allegations that the Patriots got ahold of the Jets’ playbook.
"Is there something to this?" asks Thornton. "No. I wish there was.”
“I just love the idea of Belichick on the sidelines going ‘Ryan, you magnificent bastard, I read your book!’”
Thornton says there's absolutely no merit to the argument that the Patriots have done anything underhanded.
"If Rex Ryan is enough of a clown to hand out his playbook like it’s copies of The Watchtower, he deserves to have it stolen,” says Thornton.
“The rebels stole the battle plans for the Death Star, you don’t see them re-building one.”
No, Rex. These aren't the playbooks you're looking for.
