Tom Brady and Bill Belichick will forever be linked. They will easily go down as the best QB/Coach combo of all time. Tom and Bill did amazing things together in New England. They went to a total of 9 Super bowls, and won 6. Now that Tom has moved on to greener pastures, and has proven he can win without Belichick, Tom has a message for his old pal.
“I have a great relationship with him,” Brady said, when asked if he had any “message” for Belichick during Monday’s media availability. “I’m just incredibly grateful for what he’s meant in my life as a coach. He’s everything you could ask for as a player.
“I loved my time and two incredible decades there. My football journey took me to a different place. I certainly could never have accomplished the things in my career without his support and his teachings. Incredible coach and mentor for me, had a lot of those in my career, but obviously he’s at the top of the list.”

You just know Tom is quietly very happy he’s proven that he doesn’t need Bill in order to win. We can’t say the same for Bill yet.
Two ultra competitive guys are naturally going to try to outdo each other. Right now Tom has the edge on who really is more important.
Tom heads into his 10 Superbowl this Sunday, his first without Belichick.
