Bills coach Sean McDermott addressed the hit with Belichick as the two shook hands after the Patriots’ win, and Belichick acknowledged it was wrong.
“I understand,” Belichick told McDermott, in a video caught by Prescott Rossi. “It was bulls–t. I’m sorry. I apologize.”
The NFL will surely discipline Gronkowski, who apologized after the game and admitted he was wrong. The only question is whether Gronk will get off with just a fine, or whether he’ll be suspended. It sounds like Belichick would understand if the NFL takes his best offensive playmaker off the field for a week.
