When CBS took it back to the studio, Boomer Esiason clearly looked miffed that Belichick didn't expound more on his team's play. The next day, Esiason expounded on his thoughts in an interview with Newsday:
"I was pretty disgusted with Belichick," he said. "I've interviewed him on my MSG show. It's hard. It's really hard. I don't think he does it on purpose. I just think he doesn't know any better. I just thought it was unprofessional."
Esiason left a message Sunday night for Wilcots, a former teammate on the Bengals.
Among other things, he said, "I'm surprised you didn't strangle him."
It's hard to blame Belichick, though. What's he supposed to do? Break into a rendition of Peyton Paradise?
