DID ANYONE CATCH JIM NANTZ'S INTERVIEW
of Bill Bellichek after the AFC Championship Game? Not content to let Bellichek enjoy the victory, Nantz had to play Intrepid Reported and press him (twice) to name his starting QB for the next game. First of all, why would Bellichek have even thought about that yet? Secondly, wouldn't that depend at least somewhat on the condition of Tom Brady, which he couldn't possibly know?
If there's one thing more annoying that slick smooth-talking studio hosts, it's slick smooth-talking studio hosts who think they're probing journalists. To steal Bill Simmons's favorite Nantz line, "What a moment!"
