Bill Belichick zings the media after another Chandler Jones question

BY Teddy Mitrosilis • January 14, 2016

The New England Patriots have a playoff game to prepare for this weekend, which means Bill Belichick has zero interest in discussing anything other than the Kansas City Chiefs.

He wants to spend precisely zero time talking about Chandler Jones, synthetic marijuana or anything else that doesn't have to do with winning.

The problem is Jones made headlines earlier this week by being admitted to the hospital after reportedly having a bad reaction to synthetic weed, leaving Patriots players to have to answer questions about it since the team has so far shielded Jones.

So at his Thursday morning press conference, Belichick tried to beat the media by making a quick comment about Jones, hoping everyone could then move on. From The Boston Globe:

Questions followed, of course, and Belichick and the media did their familiar dance. From WEEI:

Then at one point Belichick was asked a question about how Jones' situation would affect how the Patriots use him against the Chiefs, and Belichick zinged the media with this perfect and prickly response: "Well, we'll find out on Saturday. I could just Xerox you a copy of the game plan, you could send that over to Kansas City. It might be easier for all of us."

Belichick's just the best.
