Bill Belichick coached Tom Brady for several years and won six Super Bowls in the process. The old coach sent a perfect message following the quarterback’s retirement. 

From 2000-2019, the New England Patriots, led by Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, established themselves as one of sports’ greatest dynasties. Eventually, they parted ways, but it appears the old ball coach has good feelings for his former quarterback.

Now would be a good time for those complaining about Belichick being silent to become silent themselves. It would also be appropriate for those who continue to despise the quarterback, regardless of their occupation, to be quiet as well.

The run these two had is unprecedented, and unless Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid embark on the same run or enhance it, nothing like this will ever happen in the NFL. 20 years of excellence, with six Super Bowl titles and nine AFC Championship victories. That’s remarkable.

Bill Belichick sent out a heartwarming tribute to Tom Brady following his retirement.

Sometime down the line, the Patriots will make sure Brady retires as a Patriot, retire his jersey, and so many other accolades will follow. Rest assured that whenever Brady enters the Pro Football Hall of Fame, that ticket will be hot, and both Patriots and Buccaneers fans will be in attendance.

Having said that, it’s unbelievable what ride these two had together. This pairing may not have happened if it had not been for the late Dick Rehbein and his evaluation of Brady (more respectful than the national perception). Such a shame that Brady’s first quarterbacks coach didn’t live long enough to see what ultimately transpired.

It’s the end of an era (maybe) in Pro Football. A new generation has taken over, but one of the game’s greatest has left, and arguably, the game’s greatest coach has paid tribute. A fitting farewell, and what lies ahead remains to be seen.
