Shannon Sharpe blasts Bill Belichick for declining interview
CBS studio analyst (and former Baltimore Ravens tight end) Shannon Sharpe minced no words last night before the broadcast of the AFC Championship game ended.
Studio host James Brown announced to the television audience that Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick declined a post-game interview request with Steve Tasker following the Patriots 28-13 loss to the Ravens. Instead, Tasker interviewed Patriots cornerback Devin McCourty.
At first blush, I found it to be cowardly for a coach to decline an interview request knowing the chances a player would accept the same request were strong. In all honesty, I don't know the reasons why Belichick declined, but it seemed to Sharpe (and many others) that Belichick was being a sore loser.
