Tom Brady is regarded as one of the greatest football players in the history of the sport who has a mainstream appeal that many can only dream of. He also isn’t afraid to speak his mind when it comes to NFL’s rules and regulations.
On Sunday, Tom Brady and the Buccaneers competed against Brady’s former team The New England Patriots, in what was a highly anticipated matchup for fans. In the end, Tom Brady led his team to a 19-17 victory over his former team in what was certainly an epic contest.
After the end of the game, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Tom Brady embraced, and many thought Belichick threw shade at Brady. Afterwards, the two had a private meeting.
While speaking to Peter King of NBC Sports, Tom Brady explained why he had a private meeting with his former coach, whom he has known for over twenty years.
We’d known each other for 20-plus years and when I left here, we just didn’t have a chance — he was out of town — to meet. When I went down to Tampa it was COVID. I was thinking about my season and so was he. It was just, we’ve known each other for a long time, and we didn’t have a chance to talk, and tonight we did, and it was great. It was a very personal, private thing. We’ve always had that type of relationship where we can say things to each other. You know, whoever characterizes our relationship is completely wrong. People want to focus on so much stuff that’s so unimportant. You know? We were together for 20-plus years and we were so productive and successful and I learned so much from him. Loved my experience here, loved my relationship with him.
Brady’s triumphant return will certainly be remembered for a long time as the Buccaneers have all the momentum in the world right now. It remains to be seen how they will fare against the Houston Texans.
