Bill Belichick shows secret to success with quarterback Tom Brady
By Rob Leeds
Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. Is there a better combination in professional sports? Well, it seems like maybe the combination is a little lopsided…
The Tom Brady Bill Belichick debate started long before the duo met their end in New England. Both had very strong historic arguments going in their favor for a variety of reasons, but the true mastermind behind the success is starting to become apparent.
As people wondered for years about which of the pair brought the Patriots to the next level, the past few years have shown us exactly where they stand.
Belichick will still go down in history as one of the greatest coaches of all time, but he has finally revealed his plan with Brady and why the Pats have struggled without their franchise quarterback.
Belichick’s plan is simple; draft whoever you want, reach where you don’t need to, and hope like Hell Tom Brady can make the team look good.
Does this seem outlandish? Perhaps. But look at what Belichick has done in Brady’s absence after the GOAT joined the Buccaneers.
Are Pats fans still feeling good about performances by N’Keal Harry, Malcom Brown, or Sony Michel? What about the recent free agency moves by the Pats? More recently, how are they feeling about drafting Cole Strange two rounds early?
Strange is, well, a strange pick. Reaching on a guard like that during a year where there were so many other options available has a lot of people scratching their heads.
There are plenty of things to like about Strange as a prospect, but this is a reach nonetheless. A quarterback like Tom Brady could make him look like a home run, but will Mac Jones have that same effect? Seems unlikely.
Belichick is still a great coach and has a chance to redeem himself throughout the rest of the draft, but let’s not pretend that he is a better general manager than Tom Brady.
