Bill Belichick doesn’t really seem like the type of guy to heap praise on one of his own players. I’m not saying that he won’t show some love if a player makes a good play, but he wouldn’t go and say he has one of the greatest players in history, right? Wrong.
When Belichick was asked about the type of crowd that Brady draws when he speaks, weei.com reported New England’s head coach stating the following:
“Oh, I can imagine,” Belichick said. “We have to do that at the stadium, [all the people] paying homage to him. You know … greatest quarterback of all time. He’s been a tremendous leader and tremendous player for our organization.”
There it is. How beautiful, and honestly, long overdue. It’s not like we should really expect any head coach to say that his quarterback is the GOAT, but it’s hard to argue with the fact that Brady actually may be. Good call, coach.
