Bill Belichick apologizes for Rob Gronkowski's 'bulls-' hit on Bills DB

Rob Gronkowski apologizes for late hit on Bills defender Jordan Poyer on Gronk's cheap shot: “No room in this league for that”

It was a lot of frustration.

The Bills player, rookie corner Tre'Davious White, may have gotten away with holding, which clearly frustrated Gronkowski, who somehow avoided an ejection for that dirty and unsafe play. After the game, Gronk apologized and explained his frustration on inconsistent calls against him throughout his career. Gronkowski then delivered a cheap shot to a defenseless White as he was laying on the ground, and officials flagged him for a personal foul.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said, "I just don't think there's any place in the game for that". White was helped off of the field and placed in the concussion protocol, but it didn't result in an ejection for Gronkowski. "It's unfortunate and I know (Gronkowski) is a better player than that".

While Esiason agrees with just about everyone who saw the incident that it was an egregious hit and a dirty play, he does not see a suspension in Gronk's future. "There's nowhere in our game for that", Hyde said.

"First of all, I definitely want to apologize to No. 27 (White)".

As for any possible discipline, Belichick said this, via NBC Sports Boston's Phil Perry: "I didn't really see what happened on the whole play".

Expect Rob Gronkowski to be heavily fined and probably suspended for an egregious hit after the whistle in New England's 23-3 defeat of the Buffalo Bills.

"I kind of felt like he pushed me a little bit and made the play, and I just don't understand why there wasn't a flag", Gronkowski said of the play. And there was a couple times in the game they were calling me for the craziest stuff ever. "I've just got to keep playing and just keep playing hard".

First of all, there already have been 13 players ejected from games, tied for the most in any season since at least 2001, according to ESPN Stats & Information. "I said "anybody else makes that type of play, they're ejected". He ended the game with nine catches for 147 yards, but the Bills rookie clearly got under his skin on that play that ended in an interception. "To me, it was blatant".

Gronkowski did feel bad about the play after the game.

What the Bills running back is certain of is how much Buffalo needs to correct on offense if it plans to remain in the playoff hunt by then.
