New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick Says Quarterback Tom Brady Is A Great Role Model For His Football Team
A lot has been talked about when it comes to describing the relationship that Brady and Belichick have. Considering Bill has been Tom’s only coach at the NFL level one would imagine the two have grown closer over the years.
Others have pointed out flaws in the relationship and a potential resentment at times, but one thing has been made clear.
They both have a mutual respect for each other.
“Tom works very hard and prepares well. He always has. He’s very diligent in his preparation,” Belichick said Tuesday. “It’s not an up and down thing. It’s consistent every week in terms of learning the defense, learning their schemes and their players. Just getting our game plan so he knows what we’re doing and how we’re doing it.
“Then, getting into the situational football as we get closer to the game. He’s very smart and has a lot of experience. In our system he has a lot of experience against defensive coordinators, different players, and different situations. He’s able to put it all together better than any player that I’ve ever coached.”
Coach Belichick believes Tom was a designed to be a Patriot.
“Putting all that together at once in just a couple of seconds of time, he has to process it once he gets the calls and gets to the line of scrimmage. I think his preparation allows him to in part do that. He has the football instincts as well. He’s a great role model for all of us. Any player and any coach. All of us.”
