Pagano added that he hasn’t spent much time thinking about the controversy or its aftermath.
“I really haven’t given it any thought to be honest with you for the past eight months,” Pagano said. “Our focus has been on this football team getting ready for our season, the offseason program, training camp, preseason and now we’re into Week 6. It’s preparation for today, preparation for the upcoming game, period.”
When Pagano and Belichick finally touch base on Sunday, they should have plenty to talk about.
