Does the Brady/Pat split remind you of Jerrah vs Jimster?

    It is just errie to me.

    Words back and forth.

    Brady and his 2500 word statement.

    Ennuendos about Belecheat being able to win with just about any QB?

    Brady supposedly giving Belecheat a home town pay cut for 20 years and the Pats being ungrateful.

    Sure sounds like Jerrah saying he could win with any 500 coaches.

    Jimster saying Jerrah did not appreciate him nor let him make decisions without wanting credit for any success?

    Jimster leaving after 2 SBs...Brady after winning 6..

    It's too similar.

    You guys see this?

    My sensibility says Belecheat is in trouble and so is Brady.

    Happy endings only happen in fairy tales.

    Just my take.

    PS-Glad Brady is in Tampa now. No more cold weather to act as the 12th man for him.

    No, not at all.
    Brady's time has come for him to retire. Maybe a new venue allows him the energy to start out good though.
    Just need to see how bill and NE heart without the GOAT, will it make a difference.

    Jimmy, his time had come also, but it was his own doing he was out, as he wanted to leave anyway. He just pushed the right Jerry buttons to manipulate it.

    They were smart enough to stick together long enough to win 6 titles. Rather than stop at 2

    yep...nothing close to the same. One ended prematurely because of egos. The other has egos involved as well, but at least they got the most out of the relationship

    None whatsoever! The Jimmy Jerry split was the biggest travesty in NFL history. A team destined for multiple SB's flushed down the drain after two.
    Jimmy was Bill B, 10 years earlier. I don't know if 6 SB's were in the cards. But i can honestly say 4 would have happened, if not more.
    Jimmy would have figured out FA, the team would have replenished with the draft. We would have found a 2nd WR as well as TE. Jimmy would have cut the old guys and not drafted the likes of Greg Ellis or Pittman. He would have taken Moss, although I doubt we would have hit rock bottom the year before like we did with Switzer. The point being Jimmy would have kept the culture as it was and the organization would be strong to this day.

    This is such an odd take it kind of makes my head hurt.

    Brady was a Patriot for twenty years. Deciding at almost 43 (!!!) to leave in free agency is the opposite of premature.

    Tampa Bay made him an offer the Patriots couldn't match - $50 million guaranteed to play on a team loaded with WR talent. The Patriots could offer him less than half that for 1 year to throw to the scrubs who were near the top of the league in drops in 2019. For all the speculation about the psychology of everyone involved, that's what the real bottom line is - the Patriots simply weren't CAPABLE of giving Brady what he wanted in 2020. Conversely, Belichick knows the team isn't a realistic contender in 2020, with or without Brady, and isn't going to give a long term contract to a guy in the hopes that everything comes together around him when he's 44-45.

    There is a lot less drama at work here, and a lot more of people just exercising common sense, than was the case in the Jimmy vs. Jerry split.

    Going to Florida to throw to Mike Evans when it's 75 in December is basically Brady's retirement plan. He's planning on coasting through his old age making easy throws to huge fast dudes while working for a coach who isn't nearly as much of a pain in the butt as Belichick. It's a situation where throwing less than 30 picks and making the wild card round will look like an absolute triumph. Why wouldn't he take that?

    Think of it in terms of lost potential. The Patriots dynasty as we know it is basically at the end of the line regardless of if Brady stayed, left in free agency or just retired. The Cowboys on the other hand were at their absolute peak when Jimmy left. It's not like Brady bailed on the Patriots in 2005 or something, he did it in 2020.

    Quite frankly, I am appalled in the slow response time to the thread. This site has THOUSANDS of registered members.

    C'mon. Stop lurking. Surely there will is one member who will reply "Yes! I agree!".

    And do not call me Shirley when you finally do.

    The Patriots have had a run for the ages and it's 100% attributable to both HC and QB. The run is over, the magic is gone. I bet Belichick was looking to move on from Brady around the time Garrapolo was traded to the 49ers.
