Tom Brady: Bill Belichick uses incidents like Thursday as teaching moments

Patriots coach Bill Belichick doesn’t tolerate fights and doesn’t like undisciplined play, and when he sees it from other teams, he makes an example of it with his own team.

That’s the word from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who said on Friday that incidents like the Thursday fracas between the Browns and Steelers turn into topics of discussion in Patriots team meetings, where Belichick tells the players what he expects.

“Coach Belichick tries to use it as teaching moments. Talks about not throwing punches, not touching referees and staying on the sidelines,” Brady said.
