A few days before Tom Brady makes his return to the team and stadium he made famous, there is an eyeball catching billboard a few miles from the stadium.
A billboard is taking a direct shot at Patriots Coach Bill Belichick with the quote, “The OWL is no longer Wise without his GOAT.” A Brady loyalist that goes only by the name of “Jake from Boston” purchased a billboard just outside of Gillette Stadium in Foxborough that he believes settles the debate of Bill Belichick vs. Brady.
The 37-year-old lifelong Patriots fan told Boston.com that Belichick’s record without Brady speaks for itself, saying, “Here, we have a quantifiable piece of data about who has won this argument about whose dynasty this really is, who deserves all the credit for those six Super Bowl banners.”
By the way, Belichick is 62-74 without Brady behind center.
Jake echoed the same sentiments of many Patriots fans when he added that the organization didn’t do enough to keep Brady in New England.
“Robert Kraft is the boss, the buck stops with him,” he said. “[Brady] is a guy that has made him not just millions, but billions of dollars because if they don’t win six championships that franchise is not worth four or five billion dollars or whatever it is. As much as I went after Bill…Robert deserves a lot of the blame.”
Belichick said Monday that the situation was never about “not wanting him.”
“There were a lot of things there that … he looked at his options and made his decision. We weren’t as good an option as Tampa, so I mean, you’d have to ask him about all of that.”
