Tom Brady played two decades under Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and they won six Super Bowls together. But, Brady faced a lot of issues throughout his tenure with the Patriots. Playing with underperforming receivers gave him a headache. That was one of the biggest problems Brady had. Brady just needed more solid receivers.
During his interview on SiriusXM’s “Howard Stern Live,” Brady talked about his discussions with coach Belichick. So, what did Brady say to his head coach whenever his offense made a mistake?
“I would say, ‘I don’t have any trust that this guy can help us win the game,’ ” Brady said. “I’ve definitely expressed my opinion to say ‘If you put him out there, I’m not going to throw him the ball.’ The whole team is trusting me to do what’s right by the team, so you can’t put someone out there who I don’t believe in. Because if I don’t believe in him, it’s worthless for the team. I think fortunately for me, Coach Belichick always saw it the same way as me, which is why I think we had such a great connection. He saw football very much the same way that I saw it. All the coaches that I worked with on a daily basis, they want the same thing.”
Tom Brady didn’t click with recently signed Patriots receivers
New England has picked six wide receivers in the first three rounds of the NFL draft since 2003. However, none of them was a match for TB12. The team signed N’Keal Harry in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. In his rookie season, Harry was able to catch 12 passes for 105 yards with two touchdowns.
Brady left the New England Patriots and entered a new chapter with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He earned this right after all the games he won with the Patriots. Tampa Bay hasn’t won a title in a really long time, and they are off to winning it this time. Having Brady on the roster is a big deal for the Buccaneers. 2020 will be an interesting season for both the Patriots and Tampa Bay. New England will play without Brady for the first time in two decades. The Bucs will play with the greatest quarterback of all times. There’s so much going on out there.
