WATCH: Bill Belichick cracks up, walks out of presser on ‘high note’

Bill Belichick was in rare form on Wednesday.

Bill Belichick’s press conferences don’t often feature smiles or laughs from the New England Patriots head coach. But it’s the holiday season, so he was in a good mood and had the press room cracking up on Wednesday.

After Belichick was asked about the current state of the running back position, he suggested to reporters that they end the press conference on a high note. Before that could happen, though, he was questioned about a report suggesting Steven Jackson will be in for a workout on Wednesday. That was the trigger for Belichick to abruptly walk out — laughing in the process.

This is a side of Belichick we don’t often see, but he certainly does have a light-hearted personality … sometimes. Despite all the injuries the Patriots have suffered of late, Belichick remains as positive and funny as ever.
