We have heard for years that Bill Belichick is the reason behind the success of the New England Patriots, but former Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola is saying that is not the truth.
Amendola joined FS1’s First Things First on Monday and boy was he very blunt when asked the question.
“When you see ‘Patriot Way’ in the dictionary, it’s gonna have Tom Brady’s name next to it,” Amendola said. “None of those coaches threw any passes, none of those coaches caught any passes, none of those coaches made any tackles. They get guys in the right position because they watch a lot of film and they spend all their time at the facility.
“Tom Brady is the ‘Patriot Way,’ and that’s the reason why Tom Brady’s in the Super Bowl right now and the Patriots aren’t.”
Amendola is not a very big fan of Belichick and he has let that be known since 2018, but with Tom Brady in the Super Bowl a year removed from Belichick, it makes you wonder. Maybe Amendola has a point.
