Belichick Says Walsh Lacks Credibility
New England Patriots Coach Bill Belichick fired back at former Patriots video assistant Matt Walsh during an interview with CBS News aired this evening.
"I don't know what the agenda is," Belichick said. "Again, he was fired here for poor job performance. There's not a lot of credibility. You know, he's tried to make it seem like we were buddies and belonged to the same book club and all that is really a long, long stretch."
Belichick seemed particularly irked at Walsh's attempts to describe the system by which the Patriots put their tapes of opponents' play signals to use.
"For him to talk about game-planning and strategy and play-calling and how he advised coordinators is, it's embarrassing," Belichick said. "It's absurd. I mean, he didn't have any knowledge of football. He was our third video assistant."
Belichick denied Walsh's contention that he'd been told to conceal his taping activities. Belichick also stuck by his earlier explanation that he merely had misinterpreted league rules regarding the practice.
"I made a mistake," Belichick said. "I was wrong."
