Since the end of the Patriots season in the Wild card round against the Tennessee Titans, there has been constant talk about the future of Tom Brady and if he’ll come back to play football, and if he does, would it be with the Patriots.
Well, Brady already answered the question on his future in a lengthy Instagram post about having more to prove, suggesting he’s coming back in 2020. But, what about Bill Belichick??
Following New England’s wild-card loss to the Tennessee Titans on Saturday, Boston Sports Journal’s Greg Bedard speculated about Belichick’s future with the Patriots.
From his column:
“There have been increasing NFL rumors that perhaps Belichick is not as wedded to Foxborough as many of us, certainly me, thought. Is Belichick setting up a final test on whether he has complete control of the football operations? I think Belichick would be OK with Brady being back, but not at the expense of the rest of the team. There are four openings out there and they won’t last forever. If Belichick is contemplating a move, it would have to come soon. There’s no solid intel, but some rumblings I hadn’t heard before. So I don’t rule anything out.
“For the record, my money is still on Bill and Tom being back together again for Year 21.”
Belichick leaving the Patriots is not being talked about as much as Brady leaving, because of the power he has within the organization.
Belichick is arguably the best coach in NFL history and his drive to win every Super Bowl is what keeps him going. I fully expect the legend to be back on the sidelines for the Patriots in 2020.
It still remains to be seen if Brady will be alongside him.
