Tom Brady Sr. has said plenty of things over the years regarding the relationship between his son and the Patriots, many of which have come to fruition. With Tom Jr. soon returning to Foxboro for his first game ever against the Patriots, Tom Sr. had some more things to say.

Tom Sr. appeared with Tom Curran the Patriots Talk podcast.

Does Tom the father feel vindication on behalf of Tom the son? “Damn right,” Tom Sr. said. “[Coach Bill] Belichick wanted him out the door, and last year he threw [50] touchdowns. I think that’s a pretty good year.”

He Tom Sr. think Tom Jr. feels the same way? “Damn right,” Tom Sr. said.

Tom Sr. said he’ll be feeling “very nostalgic” when his son returns to New England in 11 days. But Tom Sr. isn’t sufficiently nostalgic to hoard Patriots paraphernalia. He said he kept a license plate commemorating six Super Bowl, but that most of the rest of it has been given to “Goodwill or Catholic Charities or something.”

Tom Jr. is now all about the Bucs. More specifically, he’s all about winning No. 8. If he does, he’ll be all about winning No. 9. Beating the Patriots is a means to that broader end. If it also gives him a chance to show Belichick that they should have kept Brady.

That’s the one thing lost in Brady leaving the team. The Patriots didn’t try very hard to keep him around. More specifically, Belichick didn’t try very hard to keep him around.

  1. He shouldn’t feel too vindicated. Everybody always thought it was him and not BB or obviously any other coaches in NE.

  2. Tom’s “branding of himself” i.e. TB12 was getting in the way of BB’s team-first approach. BB only wants to coach players he likes as Tom E Curren has stated previously. Tom wanted more input in the team building, and BB said “players play”, they don’t make GM decisions.

  3. I blame Kraft.
    BB always lets players go before their end. But Kraft could have/should have stepped in and said no.
    He said to get rid of Antonio Brown and Garapalo. He should have demanded to keep Brady!

  4. It’s a QB league. That Bucs defense is very good, but …
    2017 (without TB): 5-11
    2018 (without TB): 5-11
    2019 (without TB): 7-9
    2020 (with TB): Super Bowl champs

  5. Tampa’s defense won the SB and Brady went along for the ride. The defense demolished 3 future HOF QBs in the playoffs on the way to winning the SB.

    Let us wait and see how Pats ride on defense to make to AFCCG at least.

    Taking the game against Dolphins as an example, with the running game, Brady would have scored 24 points, even with 2019 squad, and Pats would have won the game easily. See why Pats could dominate AFCCE for 19 years? It is NOT because of defense.

    Haha. The offense had to put up 30+ points a game to win. The SB was an awesome defensive sight for sure so I will give you that one.

    If having Brady guarantees 24 points then the Patriots would have won 8 SBs. The Patriots could have used those 24 points against the Giants to win the SB.

    Ever since he left, Brady’s new team has been better than his old team

    **************************************************

    Yep. Because he had a way better supporting cast with the new team versus old team. Makes it easier.

  10. The TB that won the super bowl was Tampa Bays Defense not that 50 yr old QB who hogs all
    the credit .
