Patriots Were Split Between Brady and Belichick

  • Are things getting a little heated for Tom Brady and the Patriots as they enter this postseason

This week, ESPN released a report about the state of the New England Patriots after what has been a usual, but strange regular season for the franchise, especially after some of the moves and trades which they made.

ESPN's Seth Wickersham published a story late Thursday evening that detailed dysfunction in the Patriots' organization. Guerrero has been working with the quarterback since 2004, but recently made headlines after his "special team privileges" were revoked by Belichick, as per The Boston Globe. However, this move only led to more of an issue with the team. He did so to the San Francisco 49ers, keeping Brady as the starter, but this has reportedly upset the Patriots head coach. New players felt the surest way to earn Brady's trust was to join Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola and others by seeking advice from Guerrero at his TB12 clinic - and not team doctors, which Belichick preferred. Among the frustrations was Brady's apparent reluctance to help Garoppolo develop.

While Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo were friendly and share the same agent, Brady didn't see it as his role to advise Garoppolo. In a statement he released jointly with Brady and Kraft, the message was more verbose than Belichick's usual post-game analysis but no less dismissive. He knocked; nobody was there. "He couldn't believe it, Garoppolo told the staffers, and that night ended up visiting team trainers instead". ESPN claims team owner Robert Kraft responded to Brady's uneasiness by ordering Belichick to trade Garoppolo. Belichick knows Brady won't be playing forever, so having the next man in line ready to go makes ideal sense. Brady seemed to convince Kraft to stick with him while Brady couldn't do the same with Belichick.

But winning cures everything, right? As long as the Patriots remain in the playoffs, a story like this will be secondary to any task at hand, but one wonders if this really is how the Patriots dynasty will ultimately end.
