Bill Belichick will address the media for the first time Wednesday at 1:45 p.m. and is expected to talk about several topics, including Aaron Hernandez. The panel on "UNO Sports Tonight" discusses what Belichick will actually say.

"I think," Steve Buckley of The Boston Herald said, "he needs to humanize himself tomorrow and … speak eloquently about the victim, the family, the repercussions, and then answer everybody's questions."

If he doesn't say anything about Hernandez, the former Patriots' tight end who was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, he can still move on and move everyone's attention elsewhere, similar to how he handled the Tim Tebow signing.

"My issue here is that it's not a football issue," Buckley said. "It's very personal. It's a crime. It's murder. It's victims. It's funerals. It's family. It's a grieving mother whose story is very poignant."
