Despite all the rumors surrounding their relationship, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said everything's going well between him and quarterback Tom Brady. In an interview with Mike Krzyzewski’s Sirius XM show, Belichick discussed his relationship with Brady, which has produced six Super Bowl trophies in the past 19 seasons.

According to Belichick, he has something in common with Brady, which is the love for football and the desire to continue learning about the game. “There’s some things that he sees that I just don’t see, and I think the reverse is true,” Belichick said of his veteran signal-caller.

Belichick said he and Brady continuously learn from each other and have been able to grow together as time passes by, which is the key to their thriving relationship. “I think it’s a thriving relationship that never gets old,” Belichick explained.

Belichick admits difficulty in putting team on same page

In a game where there’s a division, Belichick admitted that it’s very hard to put offense, defense and special times on the same page as a head coach. However, Belichick said his role is to manage crucial situations with Brady, offensive coordinator, special teams coach, and the defensive coordinator.

As their coach-player relationship enters into its 20th season, Belichick said the time that they have spent together have built the philosophy that enables them to understand and anticipate each other in different types of situation.

“We try to get the best thing. I’d say we both work at it,” Belichick said.

In their 19-year relationship, Belichick and Brady have won six Super Bowl titles, with the last coming after a 13-3 win over the heavily favored Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII.

Rumors persist about Belichick-Brady relationship

In 2017, there were reports that the Belichick’s relationship with his quarterback after the head coach stripped Brady’s trainer and close friend, Alex Guerrero, of some special team privileges.

It was reported that Belichick stopped Guerrero from boarding team flights and prevented him from staying on the sideline during games. Aside from this, Belichick also prevented Guerrero from treating other players other than Brady at his exclusive office in Gillette Stadium. However, the two sides refused to address these rumors, leading them to die a natural death.

Despite his age, the 41-year-old Brady remained a force to reckon with on the field, completing 375 of 570 passes for 4,355 yards and 29 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. However, Brady failed to earn performance bonuses from his contract after failing to meet several categories.
