We are getting closer and closer to the start of the 2020 NFL season. At the same time, speculations are beginning to swirl about how Bill Belichick and Tom Brady will do without each other.
According to recent reports, Heath Evans thinks that Belichick and his former quarterback will be able to sustain success without each other. He knows a lot about these two since he played for the Patriots from 2005 to 2008, during which time he rushed for 453 yards and three touchdowns. He fit New England’s offense well and played a lot of games for them. When talking on the topic of Brady and Belichick, he said:
“People might have questions, but I have no doubt Tommy is going to be brilliant without Bill. Will it be like it was for him in New England? I don’t know. But Tommy is a freakin’ machine. His brain didn’t go anywhere. His game-planning strategies didn’t go anywhere. He’s going to be great for the Bucs.
“Bill is Bill. He’s going to have his team locked and loaded. He’s going to know what they’re capable of, and what they’re not capable of, he’ll keep them in the box. He’ll have them grow every week. He’ll take (Jarrett) Stidham, and develop a game plan that puts them in the best position to win, and we’ll see if there’s still enough defensive talent on the roster to play the complementary style of football that will be demanded. It’s having a bend-but-don’t break defense, a ball-control offense, and win games when it matters in the fourth.”
We can’t wait to see how things play out for the two of them. This will be our first-ever chance to see how the two manage without each other. You can bet we will have one interesting season on our hands this year!
