Tom Brady Has Reportedly Had "Tensions" With Patriots Coaching Staff

I'm going to take a different view on this whole situation. I'm relatively young, but old enough to remember how terrible the Patriots (and just about every team here in NE) were for a long time.

The first game I can remember with any kind of clarity is Super Bowl XX against the Bears. I was 10 and that game got me into football and into paying attention to the Patriots.

After that game, the Patriots went a combined 106-123 with 9 seasons with 8 or less wins. 6 seasons with 5 or less wins 3 seasons with either 2 or 1 wins.

Those a bit older than me will remember the years 1960-1985 where they went 163-185. From 1965 to 1975, they won 49 games. Ten years, 49 wins.

I think we've been charmed lately here in NE with championships. Since 2004, Boston's won 18% of the four major sports titles. The Red Sox have now won three of the past 10 World Series. The Patriots have won two of the past 10 Super Bowls. The Celtics have won one of 10 NBA Finals. And the Bruins have won one of the past nine Stanley Cups. (04-05 season was cancelled because of the lockout.)

So, enjoy that we have a first ballot, elite quarterback who has given selflessly to the team with regards to his contracts...and an argument can be made he has not seen that money reinvested back into weaponry he can use on the field).

So, perhaps, a bit of losing will give us the perspective we need...and how great it was during the Brady/Belichick era.

For some perspective...champion and all around nice guy had this to say of Dave Deguglielmo:
“I have heard things,” Fauria said. “I haven’t heard from the Patriots players, per se, but I have heard that there are some issues with him as being the coach. There are some issues with his personality, there’s some issues with the way he coaches, with the technique that he teaches.”
