Bill Belichick, the head coach of the defending Super Bowl champions, the New England Patriots, showed up to a press conference with a black eye, without any explanation. Considering how tight-lipped the coach is to the media, especially after the 2015 NFL scandal that we called "DeflateGate," Belichick did not talk about his eye injury. That doesn't mean that Twitter users wouldn't take comical guesses! As part of a hashtag competition for The Rich Eisen Show, we got to see some funny memes and more about the mysterious black eye.
First of all, check out this black eye Belichick was sporting earlier in the week (via UPROXX Sports):
