Reporters have to be very careful when asking Bill Belichick questions, as there’s a chance he could make them look like idiots. This especially is true after a loss.
However, someone didn’t get that memo after the Denver Broncos defeated the New England Patriots 30-24 in overtime Sunday night.
One brave reporter ventured to ask Belichick how he felt after star tight end Rob Gronkowski went down with a knee injury late in the fourth quarter. As you can imagine, the Patriots head coach was extremely short with his answer — “What do you think?” he asked — and even gave a pretty terrifying death stare.
The most recent report, however, is that Gronkowski might not miss any time, so maybe Belichick would have been a little nicer had he known that. Then again, this is Bill Belichick we’re talking about, so probably not.
