We just hope that Bill Belichick, who despises any form of trash talk, does not have the Patriots’ social-media staff fired. Remember, this is a guy who benched Wes Welker for a part of a game after the wide receiver mocked Rex Ryan’s foot fetish.
When told about this story, running back Stevan Ridley, a former Patriot now with the Jets, said Belichick would not appreciate New England’s social media department poking an opponent.
Asked what he thought Belichick would do to the employee who sent the tweet, Ridley said with a smile, "There’s no telling, man. I wouldn’t be surprised if he wasn’t there (anymore)."
