Bill Belichick doesn’t get mad often, but when he does, he is pretty good about containing his emotions. If you’ve watched him get riled up during a Patriots game, he normally stands there with a sour look on his face while staring into the distance. He doesn’t scream, he doesn’t throw things, and he doesn’t get into the face of his players all that frequently.
That wasn’t the case on Sunday, as Belichick got mad during the Patriots’ game against the Bills and responded by spiking his tablet against the ground. New England couldn’t get anything going against their AFC rival in the final game before Tom Brady makes his way back from suspension. This, understandably, made Belichick rather upset, so he moseyed on over to the bench area with his tablet and spiked it against a container like he was Rob Gronkowski.
The best part of this is that Belichick did all of this in such a nonchalant manner. Before the game, there was a scuffle between the two teams, so no one would be surprised if Belichick was a little more riled up than usual.
But no, Belichick reacted in such a mild way. Maybe he knows that Brady is coming back next weekend and if the Patriots go 3-1 without their All-Pro quarterback, it’s not the end of the world. It is, however, the end of that tablet, because there’s no way that thing is going to work after this.
