In a new video posted by WROC-TV's Prescott Rossi show's Belichick and McDermott embracing following the game. McDermott appears to confront Belichick about the hit and Belichick responds by saying "I understand, it was bullshit, i'm sorry."
When asked about the hit in his post game press conference, Belichick said, “I didn’t really see what happen on the whole play, there was quite a bit of stuff going on that the officials handled during that play. It is not something that we have any control over.”
Gronkowski could face further discipline from the league for the hit.
Late in the fourth quarter with the game in hand, Tom Brady threw a pass to Rob Gronkowski that was picked off by White.
With White on the ground, Gronkowski threw himself at White, appearing to injure him with a late hit.
Gronkowski was called for a personal foul for unnecessary roughness, but was not ejected from the game.
