FOXBORO -- The Super Bowl is the biggest game of the year, but one of the head coaches in the league hasn't seen it in quite some time.

This came up on a conference call with Patriots reporters Wednesday when Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said he didn't watch the Patriots fall to the Eagles in Super Bowl LII -- not live, not even in film study.

In fact, he said he hasn't watched the game in decades.

"Probably when I wasn’t a coach," he said. "Probably when I was allowed to gamble. Probably when I was 12. When I had a little money on it. You guys write that. I’ll probably get [expletive] investigated."

Marrone added: “I don’t know why no one believes that. ... I’m usually so pissed off that I can’t handle it. I just don’t watch it. I watch enough tape during the year.”

While Marrone himself hasn't watched the game, he did acknowledged his assistants have definitely seen it in the preparation for Sunday's game.

We're pretty certain one day Marrone will cave, as how can someone go this long without watching?
