Bill Belichick: ‘Go talk to the geniuses that are online’ about reported Johnny Manziel scouting leak

05.10.14 at 1:53 am ET

FOXBORO — Call him a cynic or just highly suspicious, but Bill Belichick wasn’t about to feed into the Friday frenzy created by a report that a scouting report on Johnny Manziel from a Patriots scout had some how, some way found its way online.’s Mike Reiss asked Belichick about the report late Friday night during the press conference to talk about Day 2 of the NFL draft, and how it could possibly be that a scouting report on the most-discussed player in the draft might have been leaked by the most guarded team in the NFL.

“With all due respect, I hate to admit this, but I don’€™t think I’ve been online in a couple days or weeks or whatever, so that’€™s not really an important thing to me,” Belichick said. “I don’€™t even know what’€™s online and what isn’t online. But I would say we probably have, I can’€™t even imagine, 10,000 pages of information. It’€™s a lot of information.

“There’€™s no way I can sit up here and tell you that I’ve read it all. I’ve read a fraction of it. But we have a ton of information on all the players that are in the draft. What’€™s online, you should go talk to the geniuses that are online. I don’€™t know. MyFace, YourFace, InstantFace. Go talk to whoever you want that does that stuff. I don’€™t know.”
