Brady knows Belichick is not a warm and fuzzy guy, and Belichick understands his quarterback has his volatile moments (such as his sideline meltdown with Josh McDaniels a few weeks ago).
I’ve worked with plenty of playoff teams on which there were guys who didn’t get along with other players or their coaches. But come game time, they were true professionals who did their jobs to the best of their abilities. That’s Belichick’s mantra 锟斤拷 Do your job. And his Patriots comply.
I was the general manager of the Vikings team in 1998 that had a quarterback controversy with Brad Johnson getting hurt and being replaced by Randall Cunningham.

It’s gruesome, a forearm shiver from a much bigger man to the back of the head of Tre’Davious White, the Buffalo cornerback. Suspensions should not be doled out easily. But in this era of football, when the ills of hits to the head and head trauma and concussions are rightfully and universally decried, the violence of a hit like Gronkowski’s has far-reaching implications.
It left White with a suspected concussion. Knowing what we know about the dangers of concussions and how, once a concussion is suffered, future concussions can come easier, it’s inexcusable for a concussion to happen voluntarily. Gronkowski surely didn’t mean to concuss White, but whatever he meant doesn’t matter; it was a purposeful hit to the back of his head.
