Clearly the GOAT. Congrats to him. Also, my wife has a huge crush on him, so everytime she brings up how gorgeous he is, I always pull up this picture on my phone. Crazy how good he has been for so damn long.

ESPN article was good.  I liked to see in the inside of the organization a little bit.  Wouldn't surprise me if the TB12 guy gets pushed out by Brady too given that he's gotten injured despite listening to that guy.  I think Belichek and Brady will get it figured out.

Just think what Brady could do if he didn't feel threatened by Belichik. This discontent means that the Pats are "careening" toward the end of their dynasty, according to ESPN radios self-coverage this afternoon.

belicheck.  they are saying it is so bad that it might be their last year together.  link here:

set up quote for the article is here: 

After all, many in the Patriots' building knew that Brady's explosion wasn't really about McDaniels. It wasn't about Cooks. And it wasn't about the Bills game. It was about the culmination of months of significant behind-the-scenes frustrations. For almost two decades, Belichick has managed to subvert the egos of his best player, his boss and himself for the good of the team, yielding historic results. This year, though, the dynamics have been different.


could be big news in a month or two.

That's the kind of cowardly hit piece that has given journalism a bad name the last decade or so. Not a single named source. Just a litany of the same nastiness we've heard for years. First Belichick is a secretive Svengali, then he's such a weak, team-oriented stooge that he allows Garoppolo to be traded for a handful of magic beans.

Does anyone really believe Garoppolo, the 62nd pick of the 2014 draft, would be so damned good right out of the box for the 49ers if he weren't right there with Belichick and Brady, learning the trade?

The reason Brady only has three All-Pros is that there are physically more gifted quarterbacks who teams have built franchises around. What New England has is this relationship between Belichick, who has such a great understanding of defense that he can design this route-reading system to break down just about anything. And Brady has the football brains and enough physical talent to execute it perfectly.

It's a coach/player relationship that, if they had an award for it, Brady/Belichick would win every year. Both are unanimous first-ballot Hall of Famers.
