Patriots: Belichick admits Pats weren’t good option for Brady

The New England Patriots will host Tom Brady for the first time ever this Sunday. Brady returns to the castle it took him nearly 20 years to build with the intention of leaving Foxborough victorious. After the way it ended two years ago, Brady is looking to prove Belichick and the New England regime wrong.

One thing we know about Brady is that he always comes back fired up and pissed off after a loss. And unfortunately for the Patriots, they’re next in his path of destruction. To put Brady’s frustration into further perspective, he attempted 55 passes in their loss to the Rams. That’s the most Brady has thrown in the game since 2015 and only 10 away from his career high 65.

Brady Bolts for Tampa

When Brady left for Tampa, the narrative surrounding New England was that Belichick didn’t want him anymore. It appeared to be true, as Belichick wanted to reset his team’s roster and clean the books to prepare for the future. However, after nearly two years, today we learned that wasn’t true at all. While making his weekly appearance on WEEI, Belichick expressed that he didn’t want Brady to leave.

“I think we’ve been through all the dynamics of that. There were a lot of things there. He looked at his options and made his decision. We weren’t as good an option as Tampa. You’d have to ask him about all that, but it wasn’t a question of not wanting him, that’s for sure.” – Bill Belichick on WEEI

What’s great about this interview with Belichick is the pure truthfulness you can hear in his voice. It seemed as if Belichick was surprised to hear that people may think he didn’t want Brady on the team. The Patriots are a systematic organization in terms of always having the next person in line ready to go. In an ideal world, Brady would still be in New England grooming his one day successor. Think about this, where do you think Mac Jones could be if he worked under Brady for a few years?

Let’s Paint a Picture Here!

The picture I’m trying to paint here is that it’s crazy to have though the Patriots didn’t want Brady anymore. Belichick continued on about Brady and even threw in some appreciation for someone who he’s referred to as being the GOAT.

“Tom and I had I feel like a good relationship and a lot of production, obviously while we were together. I enjoyed coaching Tom. He was a great player for us.” – Bill Belichick on WEEI

To suggest that Brady wasn’t welcome anymore in New England is pure ludicrous. Brady didn’t want to be part of this rebuilding/retooling process that he knew the Patriots needed to go through. Which is absolutely fair, Brady shouldn’t have to spend his final years in the NFL not competing for a championship. And unfortunately, that’s what would have happened if he had re-signed with New England. For the first time in Brady’s career, he put himself before the team; and for that, I can’t fault him.

Final Thoughts

Brady coming home is a week on the schedule that we’ve been waiting nearly two years for. It’s a big game for Brady for many reasons. But none more so than once again making history on the field where his career began. With just 68 more passing yards, Brady will become the NFL’s all time leader in passing yards in a career. It will be a special moment for Brady and all of his fans to endure with him back home in New England.

Lastly, knowing the class act that Robert Kraft is, there will most likely be some type of tribute for Brady.
