A new book, “It’s Better To Be Feared” by ESPN writer Seth Wickersham, explored the New England Patriots dynasty through hundreds of sources and interviews that reveal the inner workings of the team from 2001 to 2019.
At one point, Kraft called Belichick the “biggest f–king a–hole in my life” as he was leaving a conference in Colorado for Detroit, where the Patriots were playing a game.
“I hate leaving here,” Kraft said to a group of friends, per ESPN. “You leave here and you leave some of the most brilliant people you’ve ever met. You pick up so much knowledge from all these brilliant minds. And I have to go to Detroit to be with the biggest f—–ng a–hole in my life — my head coach.”
On top of that, Kraft also referred to Belichick as an “idiot savant” to another confidant, and balked at his reputation before joining the Patriots, saying, “I gave him this opportunity.”
The book also claims Brady, Kraft and others at one point discussed the possibility of replacing Belichick.
Kraft and Belichick will come face-to-face with Tom Brady for the first time since he left for Tampa this Sunday night when the QB and the defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers come to Gillette Stadium.
