Bill Belichick mumbles great response to QB question

Let's get one thing straight: Even if Jimmy Garoppolo throws for 2,000 yards, 20 touchdowns with a perfect passer rating in his four starts, Tom Brady will be under center Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns.

Bill Belichick said as much on Wednesday. That didn't stop one reporter from insisting on asking Friday whether Garoppolo could remain the starter when Brady returns from suspension.

Belichick provided plenty of disdain for the question in his reply: "I told you what's going to happen."

The reporter then mumbled a follow-up, to which Belichick shook his head scornfully and muttered, "Jesus Christ," adding an eye roll for good measure.

It's vintage Belichick.
