Tom Brady is perhaps the greatest quarterback of all time. Bill Belichick and he put together one of the strongest, most dominating dynasties in the history of sports, and the New England Patriots were able to win 6 rings in two different eras.
The Belichick-Brady duo will go down as one of the best in the history of sports. However, it seems like things between them were far from great, even despite all the success and joy they accomplished together in the NFL.
Jeff Benedict's book 'The Dynasty' - which is set to release later this week - digs into the ups-and-downs of Tom Brady's relationship with Bill Belichick. And, according to NBC Sports, his wife Gisele Bundchen wasn't exactly fond of his coach.
Gisele Bundchen's NSFW Description Of Bill Belichick's Treatment Of Tom Brady
The Book points that Brady wanted to leave the Patriots after the Super Bowl in 2017. Team owner Robert Kraft tried to smooth things up by setting up a meeting, in which Gisele took the word and was blunt about how poorly Belichick treated her husband:
"She also pointed out how ridiculous it was that after all these years, Belichick still treated Brady like “f****** Johnny Foxboro.” It was bad enough to never voice approval. It was bullsh*t to still be dressing down the most accomplished quarterback in league history during team meetings and treating his personal trainer and best friend like some kind of outcast," the report said.
Bill Belichick has a reputation for being harsh to all of his players but you'd expect that things would be different when he talks to a multiple-time Super Bowl winner and the face of the dynasty.
Tom Brady Wanted To Leave The Patriots Since 2010
The book also states that Tom Brady wasn't sure about his future with the New England Patriots since 2010. Apparently, Tom Terrific was 'paranoid' about Belichick replacing him without a heads up.
Belichick reportedly offered Brady to the San Francisco 49ers in 2017 and it was Robert Kraft the one who shut down the deal. That's when their relationship took a major blow and Brady knew it was time for him to leave.
Now, Bruce Arians will most likely have quite a different approach towards one of the GOATs. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn't hesitate to offer Brady two fully-guaranteed years and he's determined to prove that he's not a system quarterback.
