And this next guest Michael Holley from WEEI radio in Boston wrote a book about him called Belichick and Brady to mend the patriots and how they were a flute how they revolutionized the ball. NM Michael joins us now in your email Michael. I can't and won't crossroads how are you. Good doing good you know my first question is out of the question I've always wondered and you will be a great guide it. Do you I am s.'s is Bill Belichick truly is big of a jerk is he seems from a far. I could I can believe me I can understand the question packet appreciated to. Because you guys have you guys have seen it and went seeded here. Kentucky did go to let's play that media game you can't comment on this simple question whether he'd just say dancer go out at the bottom of the dialogue. And at and most of the time he doesn't. I've seen all sides of immediately dimensional character that we all are so we all have our. Our great moments are public public sort terrible moment but it probably a little more than our are trends and are exposed give us credit work. So things like that to me he's got. Other side of his personality they're actually interest seeing that here at times I agree with you Qatar has publicly it'd take it became. Well as it is than you you had eight Iran you know what was this almost. Two decades ago with the 1617 years they've been together you had a retread coach. Who was a failure as first stop a six or a quarterback they couldn't. Win the full time starting job at Michigan. And then they go on to form the greatest dynasty and in modern football so that's the question. More responsible military or Brady for this Iraq. I am in it they. I get the question. I've heard that question a lot not that not only nationally but locally I mean we spent many hours on the radio debating does that comport. Nobody really has the right answer it the gentlemen won one and contrary to what the team builder is most important titillating an F well. If you don't have our good structure good organization and somebody would vision collegiate team at the tech players on the other hand. And you can say they have the greatest coach of all time is not gonna do anything unless you have policy and talent to go back where I do believe this though. And I don't know this might be a cup outlive me actually a question but I actually believe that. They've been geniuses in the partnership. I think Tom Brady could have won a Super Bowl without Bill Belichick and Bill Belichick could have won a Super Bowl the dot com. Think. That they will be guys who could say you have been fixing crippled so we want scorching the the last sixteen division titles that won more games and any coach quarterback combination of Richard I don't I don't think. They will be able to accomplish all of these things on Merrill's. This is Michael Holley from WEI radio in Boston on Belichick and Brady what is the story behind them how they came together mean them. Patted don't happen. Why K can I certainty. You've got such a good question and I'm still thinking about yeah via the bleacher lack connect it to up three turbine trip. So it it's a wake. Observation. On your part in yesterday on the show we were just talking about it and who it is different context. It goes out of outlook public hired Sean McDermott has some new blood in the air and guard buffalo air and as you guys know the LA rams are the youngest coach in NFL history carnage on the bring new blood. And or Michael Rose is saying well would you rather have this new blood order retread actually well. Let's not just crap I'm preacher pat so fast. Because it. Some of these some of the most beloved coaches and posture in recent possibly history. Lecture you mentioned Bill Belichick richer. Quote Jews and with the Bruins went Stanley Cup values are part of what job the NHL. Doc Rivers won a championship here. I was fired at Orlando. And they got a particular Francona broker a law World Series trip the World Series comes from Boston. Did not do well at Philadelphia so. I attempt saint. At times were a little too dismissive of people who have failed the first time some people got the first time greed is no good data on never been get out of some of it you're persons thoughtful and you're really honest with yourself can pick about the mistake you made. If say welcome to another opportunity. How do this late next time and sometimes it's just good luck you look at Joseph Torre. I would Atlanta. Well okay he was all right. Look at Joseph Torre with the cardinals that he was just our right. Look at the Yankees and he's got it also came because he has a hall of fame because of what to do with the Yankees. So yeah I think I think. We probably ought to expand a conversational remorse article that can't or did you just did you hit it in the right spot in the got to go. Nods it's because you know you look through Bill Belichick there he had what five years in Cleveland one winning season he went five and eleven gets canned. It's hired. What five years their New England goes five and eleven in today's NFL. He may not make it past that first season we've seen first year coaches go five and eleven get canned. And then the next year of course they were in the Super Bowl today's modern football he may not get a chance. There's so write good we got to start talking about coaches just saying we would talk about players you know player. Try the big free agent contract and no there was no on this cold this Tuesday just seven years hundred million. And we essentially okay ballistic guaranteed money can YouTube never going to be their first seven years essentially what coaches hate cycle bog your contract is cyclical and it doesn't matter. Most franchises will not be patient with the coached to the life of the contract you really can't speak coming. BA life. With their shots flight of coaches and we do you know it it you guys again and yet NBA franchise where you are. In these guys are due to Trent has been keeping about the Colombian army. It's hard to keep looking coaching danger I don't opera bit just about no Doc Rivers but. You look at somebody who seemed so what diabetic sister. How old you bet the coach I'm a little before. Michael Holley here now I'm back to beat the other question. This one the biggest deals and draft history and most other teams did not like Tom Brady. You know whose credits word for drafting him and how this all came together in the first place. All of us at Oakland gets. You've got to do drugs and basically kind of the late quarterbacks coach for the patriot chipped it in the bulk of the credit. Bill Belichick it brought a bid from the giant trade I'm talking about can control his entire career. I can't stop with that I'm. That doesn't really have respect form and he made about first year quarterback coach which was good because you have to look at the position. Which specialize in a veteran quarterback coach may have looked great the same way the rest of the NF albeit very well culture have been special they're so loud. Belichick is is very rapidly depleted by credit score scouting Brady and merely standing up warm and draft room. When he got to decrypt route six round. Almost to the point we're talking about undrafted free agents so luckily the grapevine deserves most of the credit and once we go let's go lady. I've got to Foxboro. And learn the offense. Did make it's that they had such an extent that no they had a halt in court that they knew they had a guy it was pretty good it was a lot of our worker. In even before Drew Bledsoe took a devastating hit from a little risk and their coaches and staff should. Brady's got a better than Bledsoe. And he's going to be starting quarterback version. That was going to be my next question if they had any idea or was at the last or deliver in his leg like I guess we'll see what happens but it was it sounds like this wasn't just. You know completely out of the blue there were some people the right. Yeah I mean do you have any idea how to halt same level no. The track to loosen and it cost them millions and millions of dollars on the come by and personal interviews and personal workouts and I hope you guys questioned about not gonna do applaud got to get into this territory gonna talk to a second great teachers agree future doctors next to a neighbor. That the people street over got another thing about a all the information and public analysis and over analysis. Actives. A lot of minutes I have to tell me a while ago he slowed it is the it is the scariest thing I do. Letting writing and turning in a player evaluation because you have no idea you're just still a lot a lot of guess work. Most of the league just on Tom Brady in the guest well. Because she was almost not drafted. So we can't really give you can't go too far say don't ignore all along what they trapped in a big they're giving credit to that a hundred ideally. Or other item that 398 possibilities drafted in the creek it's finally. Two academic 199. Put. There's no way anybody saw become the best quarterback ever. His new book is called Belichick number 82 men in the patriots and how they revolutionized football. Excuse me Michael Holley WEI. An intercom owned stations in the Boston thank you Michael.
