...Interesting

@Toucherandrich
ESPN is about to drop a "bombshell" article that alleges a rift has grown so big between Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the Krafts that this may be their last year together-also that Brady asked 4 Garop trade. I've been talking with the Patriots tonight, we'll discuss tomorrow.

It wouldn’t be the first time that egos broke up a team, but I’ll believe it when I see it.  Brady and BB need each other.

Don't buy it for a second.

Annual playoff time patriots hit piece.

What a joke.

Id think Brady and BB see Brady's long term role differently and Kraft is trying to be the middle ground. Father time comes for everyone is BB'S view. Brady feels like he is top of his game and can play a lot longer than expected.
My Top 5
Trade targets.      Draft.                     FAs
1. Davis              1.Fultz              1. Griffin*
2. Cousins          2. Tatum          2. Hayward
3. Butler              3. Jackson       3. Millsap
4. George            4. Ball               4. Lowry
5. Favors             5. Isaac            5. Gali

After17 years, what a colossal shame it would be if this team  (Bill, Tom and Bob) breaks up because they can't get along rather than squeezing out the remainder of the run intact.  If true, I guess Josh McDaniel will take over.  But I'll believe it when I see it.

It'd be ironic.  Very similar to what ended the Bulls prematurely.

Same, just read the article. Belichick comes out looking reasonable, Brady a bit temperamental. You just hope that this isn’t their last year together.

Kraft/Belichick/Brady just released a joint statement.

“For the past 18 years, the three of us have enjoyed a very good and productive working relationship. In recent days, there have been multiple media reports that have speculated theories that are unsubstantiated, highly exaggerated or flat out inaccurate. The three of us share a common goal. We look forward to the enormous challenge of competing in the postseason and the opportunity to work together in the future, just as we have for the past 18 years. It is unfortunate that there is even a need for us to respond to these fallacies. As our actions have shown, we stand united.”

Why did they need to make this statement? To me, it indicates there is some sort of rift, probably not substantial, but one that had to be addressed to shut the noise down in Patriot land.

Lol. It kinda' shows the opposite. Instead of reading between the lines, maybe we should just read the lines.

Probably just trying to be a little proactive on the media crapstorm that is about to hit Foxboro in the week leading up a a playoff game which isn't exactly ideal timing although I'm sure ESPN knew that, hence the timing of this piece.

Lol you are probably right. I just feel it is not necessary if nothing is wrong.
