Invoice Belichick opens up (sort of) on Tom Brady leaving Patriots for Buccaneers
Invoice Belichick with a mic test on Monday morning.
Tom Brady is returning to Foxborough on Sunday night time as the previous Patriots QB faces off in opposition to Belichick and the Pats for the primary time since leaving New England. As you possibly can think about, Brady’s former coach goes to be grilled about it.
Surprisingly, Belichick has opened up a bit concerning the Brady scenario forward of the matchup. Talking on “The Greg Hill Present,” Belichick supplied a little bit of attention-grabbing perception into the Patriots’ choice to let Brady stroll — although it wasn’t as a lot about that as in regards to the scenario that Tampa Bay supplied.

“He checked out his choices and he made his choice,” Belichick stated. “We weren’t nearly as good an choice as Tampa, so that you’d must ask him about all that. However that is actually — It wasn’t a query about not wanting him, that is for certain.”
Whereas the Belichick-Brady marriage was profitable for years — leading to six Tremendous Bowl wins and 9 appearances general — experiences indicated a fracture between the quarterback and Belichick years earlier than the top of the tenure.
Brady taking his abilities to Tampa Bay labored out nice for him, and fewer nice for the Patriots: Brady and the Bucs would win Tremendous Bowl 56, Brady’s seventh ring, whereas the Patriots toiled in mediocrity with Cam Newton on the helm and a depleted offense in 2020.
Now, Belichick hopes to rekindle a few of that Brady magic with Mac Jones beneath heart. Perhaps Brady will carry some again when he returns to Gillette Stadium on Sunday.
