Looks like there could be trouble in New England. According to Bruce Allen from Boston Sports Watch, ESPN is getting ready to publish a revealing story claiming there’s a huge rift between the Patriots HoF QB Tom Brady, the Pats coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft about who gets credit for the team’s success.
Yesterday, it was reported that Bill Belichick wanted to start Jimmy Garoppolo over Tom Brady to start the season but owner Robert Kraft quickly shut that down. Now we’re learning that Tom Brady may have gone behind Belichick’s back to force the team to trade Garoppolo.
Source: ESPN readying new hit piece on Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and Robert Kraft set to publish tomorrow morning at 8am. The topic will be a power struggle among the trio as to who deserves the most credit for the dynasty.
The article claims that the rift is so severe many Patriots feel this is the last year together for the trio. Also that Brady went to Kraft to force Belichick to trade Jimmy G. ESPN is planning a full day of promotion tomorrow for the article and its author @SethWickersham
This is a pretty big deal considering the Patriots are probably the greatest sports dynasty, as well as one of the most hated organizations in sports outside their own fan base. It would be crazy to even think Bill Belichick leaving the Patriots and coaching another team but it looks like there’s a possibility that it could happen if this gets ugly.
