"I’m not a hard candy guy."

That was the big revelation from Bill Belichick’s meeting with the media on Wednesday.

The Patriots coach shared that fact about himself when a reporter asked if he "was a candy cane guy."

At this point, Belichick thought the reporter was going to offer him the peppermint holiday treat, so the man in the hoodie quickly shut him down.
