    Sorry, but I'm not buying that. The idea that Brady didn't make sense ..... that doesn't make sense.

    Belichick should’ve bent over backwards for Brady. He deserved to go out on top, as a Patriot, with a slew of offensive weapons.

    I’d rather lose with Brady, then without him. I’d rather rebuild and worry about cap implications after Brady is retired, then when he isn’t.

    History won’t look kind on this ordeal.

    Kraft, once again, resorted to being a spineless jellyfish and Belichick, once again, let his ego get in the way.

    They certainly didn’t do what was best for the team or the fanbase.

    Belichick and Kraft deserve a giant red X for this incredible failure. What a total fckup of epic proportions. Brady should have retired as a NEP. The silver lining is that Kraft is sack of dog sht, so I’m glad he’ll have his name forever linked to being unable to keep Brady. It would be even better if Brady wins another without Kraft.

    It’s the job of the owner, coach, and GM to keep a player like this happy. Don’t start with the “well Tom wanted to leave, so it’s everyone’s fault.” No. The Patriots had the greatest player ever and maybe greatest teammate/company man ever and sht their pants. Little doubt that Kraft and Belichick’s ego are to blame, especially Kraft.

    This is how it is going when two big personalities meet each other and should cooperate. Sooner or later it must have happened they fall out with each other.
    I am far away from judging them.It is simplier to wish them both luck.

    I’m kind of hoping the season gets cancelled. Tamps would be on the hook for a ton of money and how would Tom perform after a year off?

    Blaming Brady is a mistake but c’mon, Brady signed those contracts. He could have walked away years ago if he felt they were an insult.

    I’ve defended Kraft throughout. I defended him when he caved on the deflategate nonsense. I defended him on his Asian spa fiasco. But now I can no longer defend him. If he just shut up and didn’t say anything throughout this Brady saga all parties would’ve been better off. Instead he opened his mouth and kept saying stupid things trying to get himself in the clear for letting the greatest player to ever play the most difficult position in sports walk. He should have stepped in. He should have put his foot down and told Bill “do what you need to do but Brady retires a Patriot”. If Bill leaves so be it. He’s pushing 70 and has it made here with his two sons coaching with him. His daughter coaching some sport less than two hours away. His girlfriend loving every minute of the limelight. And a house on Nantucket he gets to spend a month at every year.

    I imagine the Colts and Broncos fanbases both went through this with Manning.

    If you're a Brady fan, then feel free to stock up on TB stuff and be a Bucs fan now. We here at PATSfans.com will be ok.

    I don’t think the Colts were intentionally trying to tank.

    Colts don’t have a horrific season that year if Belichick was their coach. Not saying they’d win the SB but they would have been a lot better. Bill is still coach here. Happy to roll the dice with that.

    I still can't believe he is actually gone. It's a surreal feeling. How can one think of the Patriots without Tom Brady? How can one think of Tom Brady without the Patriots? It wasn't supposed to end this way.

    A lot of the talk now isn’t all that different from what was said in the winter and spring of 2002 about another Patriots franchise QB. I trust Bill. He’s earned that.

    The only social media I do is Instagram, and even then, only rarely. First thing I saw was KVN photoshopped into a Lolphins jersey, so I had to unfollow. I couldn't unfollow TFB, but I did mute his posts and stories. I don't care to see his Tampa BS...

    Weird times...

    No he couldn't. Pats could have put the tag on him. This is the first year he could just walk away.

    A real winner is if he said something like:

    Think about when you have a good rub and tug relationship at a spa, but the FBI are putting pressure on you to stop, so you decide you cant anymore.
