New England Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones ripped a page right out of the Bill Belichick “How To Handle The Media” playbook following the heartbreaking overtime loss to the Denver Broncos Sunday night.
After the game during his media availability session, Jones took it upon himself to say “I’m only answering questions about Philadelphia. I’m not talking about the game. If you guys have questions about Philadelphia, go ahead.”
Personally, Jones, had a good night individually on the field, recording his first career interception leading to a Patriots touchdown three plays later.

However when consistently baited by reporters to comment on Sunday nights loss, Jones provided the following answers courtesy of NESN’S Doug Kyed when asked why he was already on to Philadelphia.
“Because Philadelphia is a great team, and we have to prepare for them,” Jones said. “(Eagles quarterback) Mark Sanchez is a great quarterback. (Eagles head coach) Chip Kelly runs some good schemes, and we have to prepare for them.”
“Chip Kelly does a lot of different things,” Jones said. “He does stretch-zone runs, he passes the ball vertically, so we just have to prepare for that.”

Its hard to argue with a player who tweeted out this picture prior to the game Sunday afternoon.
