You knew Bill Belichick wasn’t going to address his team about their trip to Denver for the AFC Championship game, and not speak on the topic of marijuana and Papa John’s.
According to Doug Kyed of NESN, running back LeGarrette Blount let out that Belichick did in fact address his team about the perils of smoking marijuana while in Denver.
“It’s a business trip,” Blount said. “Nobody is going to care about that. Bill told us about it. He basically told us, ‘Don’t go out there and be stupid.’ [That’s] really good advice.”
With the Aaron Hernandez situation taking everyone by surprise, Belichick can no longer simply rely on the Patriot Way delivering the messages.
