The other night Showtime cameras caught Bill Belichick encouraging his pass-rush to keep pressuring Rodgers.
“Keep him in the pocket. He’s tried to throw us two interceptions now. We’re gonna get one. He’s just lobbing it up there,” Belichick said. Apparently Skip Bayless thought Belichick went overboard with his comments but clearly this is a case of the coach trying to pump up his team.
“I was shocked he would speak so negatively about a quarterback he praised so profusely ahead of the football game,” Bayless said. “ I think he revealed his true view of Aaron Rodgers, for whom he doesn’t have much respect, or he would’ve never gone there. I am here to suggest no other head coach in this league would be caught saying that on a microphone about Tom Brady. They’d just be too afraid of him. You just don’t speak that way about Tom Brady.
“I think you heard the truth. I think you heard, effectively, behind closed doors and it got out to the public.”

Apparently Skip missed the end of the game and delivered another over the top hot take with no substance.
Aaron Rodgers: "You're the best."
Bill Belichick: "No, you are."
