New England Patriots: Are the big three splitting apart?
How often have we heard of a rift happening in happy New England? Not very. However, that may not be the case anymore. Multiple reports have surfaced that there is a rift that could be developing between the big three with the New England Patriots. This includes the likes of Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and Robert Kraft. What could this be over?
The rift could be over the trade of backup quarterback; Jimmy Garoppolo is what is causing the issues. Many believe that Brady approached Kraft referring to the trade. Also, this is something that Belichick did not want. If true, why would Brady do such a thing? Did he fear that he could be replaced?
We all know that Brady is ranging in age for a QB. Nonetheless, would the New England Patriots actually consider replacing him before he replaces himself? This issue raises so many questions that could be answered.
Brady has often said that he wants to play until he is 45 years old. Thus, seeing him perform this year I do not see why he could not. He is a perennial contender for the league MVP award. He also always puts his team in a situation to win. So often without big-name weapons. Is this something that Garoppolo could do?
Brady has the New England Patriots sitting as the number one seed in the AFC Playoff picture. Something he often does. Additionally, he again led the league in passing yards. Again, we ask would Garoppolo be able to do this?
A rift could definitely develop if Belichick felt that Jimmy was ready to be in the spotlight. Nevertheless, would Bill have the balls to bench Brady? You’re damn right he would. In fact, Belichick has his own way of doing things and if he felt that it was time to move on, it is time to move on. Also if Brady felt that this was happening this could be the end of the dynasty that is the New England Patriots. Kraft would soon rather part ways with Belichick before his golden arm.
A rift between one of the most storied franchises is unheard of. Until now. The triple threat of the NFL is at odds. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. So, Get your popcorn ready!!
