Brady And Belichick Respond To "Flat Out Inaccurate" ESPN Report

Brady And Belichick Respond To

Interestingly, they don't address any specifics of the ESPN article in the statement.

For a story that is relevant to your interests as 1) An observer of the National Football League, 2) A Vikings fan mulling the upcoming playoffs and/or 3) Just someone who likes to read interesting tales, let me point you to Seth Wickersham's profile of the New England Patriots, which carries with it the juicy headline "For Kraft, Brady and Belichick, is this the beginning of the end?"

The joint statement from Kraft, Belichick and Brady says reports in recent days "have speculated theories that are unsubstantiated, highly exaggerated and flat out inaccurate" and that the three "stand united".

Claus Vistesen at Pantheon Macroeconomics said: "Services activity improved across the major economies". Construction firms in the United Kingdom indicated an uneven rebound in business activity in December.


The statement says the three have had a "very good and productive working relationship" for 18 years and they regret having to "respond to these fallacies". Belichick was "furious and demoralized" but reached out to 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan to initiate trade talks. The story looked at alleged differences between Belichick and Brady regarding the role of Alex Guerrero - the quarterback's fitness coach and business partner - within the team.

Brady and Guerrero's training regimen, "The TB12 Method", has reportedly caused confusion and tension among Patriots players and staff, according to the ESPN report.

Brady and Belichick both eschewed questions last month about a chasm between and Belichick and Guerrero. There was no resolution to the meeting, ESPN reported. Kraft said he was forced to support Brady "for the fans", according to the report.

Lingard and Lukaku give Man United late 2-0 win over Derby
Marcus Rashford was the guiltiest party in the first half with a poor point-blank header that he tamely nodded against the post. In the 24th minute, United earned a free-kick on the edge of the Derby box but Mata's effort was saved brilliantly by Carson.


Brady also took issue with a reporter who asked whether the quarterback and Belichick had talked about an adjustment to Guerrero's access to the team.

"I have a lot of conversations with him", Brady said.

The Patriots practiced Wednesday and Thursday in preparation for an AFC divisional-round playoff game on Saturday, Jan. 13 when they host either the Kansas City Chiefs, Tennessee Titans or Buffalo Bills. I'm not sure how much I'd read into this angle since the Patriots seem to be holding things together just fine for now and both Brady and Belichick are fierce competitors who are both interested in their own legacies.

There's a rift growing in New England between owner, head coach and quarterback.
