New England Patriots

For the Patriots, Tom Brady aftershocks likely to last for quite some time


That was one aftershock of not having Tom Brady under center for the first time in two decades, with the quarterback leaving in free agency, and bringing Tampa Bay to Super Bowl LV.


Harrison’s arrival in 2003 was a significant move in keeping the Super Bowl run going, and enjoying sustained success over a period of time.


The safety, a member of the Patriots Hall of Fame, was interested in coming to New England because he thought he would have a chance to win, and Belichick made a good enough offer.


“At the end of the day, as great as Bill is as a coach, and that can’t be denied, he still has to have players who can make things happen on the field,” said ESPN analyst and former Patriot Damien Woody.


Asked about the possibility of switching to 7, Brady didn’t want to rehash that conversation during a Zoom call, but credited Bucs receiver Chris Godwin for allowing him to have No.


Former Patriots executive Scott Pioli, currently working with NFL Network as an analyst, said he had spent some time in Tuscaloosa watching Alabama quarterback Mac Jones.
