Bill Belichick and the defending champion New England Patriots open up their regular season against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night.

Fans of the NFL’s 32 teams and pretty much every player around the league is excited to get real football back.

Belichick? Well, not as much.

It’s not the words as much as Belichick’s deadpan answer to the question. “I like football. I like football season and all of the things that go with it.”

All of that while sounding like a jock being asked to read from a Shakespeare poem in literature class.

This is vintage Bill Belichick in the most Bill Belichick manner ever. Be prepared NFL world, it might take until February in Miami to get some reaction out of this eight-time Super Bowl champion.
