Patriots clarify Bill Belichick’s remarks on Andrew Luck retirement

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick shared what seemed like a very surprising comment on Monday about Andrew Luck’s retirement, but apparently the remarks were misinterpreted.

When a reporter asked Belichick about Luck calling it a career, one of the things he said about it was that he “didn’t see that.” Many took that to mean Belichick was claiming he had no idea Luck retired. However, the Patriots have clarified that the coach meant he “didn’t see that coming.”

That makes a lot more sense. Belichick is so monotonous when speaking with the media that it’s difficult to decipher what he means sometimes, and it seems absurd even for him to claim he missed one of the biggest NFL stories in years. He’s also a six-time Super Bowl champion who prides himself on being as prepared as possible, so it would be shocking if he was unaware that one of the best quarterbacks in the AFC retired.
