Bill Belichick’s Girlfriend Claps Back At Instagram Commenter

The Tom Brady-New England Patriots marriage ended back during the offseason. Brady ended up with a new team in Tampa Bay, while New England moved on to Cam Newton as its franchise quarterback.

It hasn’t even been a year yet, but so far, it’s looking like Brady won the divorce. The Patriots finished 7-9.

Newton averaged only 177.1 yards passing, threw 10 interceptions and only eight touchdowns. Yes, he also had 592 yards on the ground with 12 rushing touchdowns, but compare that to the Buccaneers. They’re only one game away from a Super Bowl.

We don’t know — and probably won’t ever know — how head coach Bill Belichick feels about those two things. But we do know, however, exactly how Belichick’s girlfriend, Linda Holliday, feels about it.

On Tuesday, a commenter on Instagram made this statement underneath a post she made about Belichick: “Too bad Bill let Tom go!”

Ruh roh, Raggy. Apparently, that wasn’t the move — or at least it wasn’t according to Holliday.

She responded with this: “and you have all the answers evidently? Tom didn’t score last night … not once! Defense won that game. Were you even watching? OTOH- I’m happy for Tom’s career! Why can’t you be?”

There’s a lot to unpack there. But as Dov Kleiman pointed out on Twitter, Holliday is … wrong. Yes, Brady struggled, but he was definitely on the giving end of two touchdown passes. Those are technically considered scores.

He also rushed for a touchdown, so …

I’m sure Belichick absolutely loved the elaborate response, though. It definitely seems like the informative type of answer he would have given in a press conference, right?

  1. I do think the media is pushing this whole “divorce” narrative a bit much. For all we know Bellichick and Brady left on great terms. I don’t buy the argument trying to diminish either one of these guys based on one season. Both are the greatest at their specialty.

      • I would think off the top of my head not many coaches on earth are going to succeed when they lose their pro bowl starting quarterback. Although, I highlight the 2008 season Brady missed with the knee injury. Matt Cassel went 10-5 as the back up. I’d say that’s decent coaching.

        I think folks are being a silly comparing the patriots and TB teams this year as a fair comp. Seriously? Last year we saw the signs of decline in the pats offense, Brady not making throws he should make, dinking and dunking, with a sputtering offense. BUT they had a record breaking D to bail them out. Nobody was putting up a lot of points with that offense this year, because they don’t have talent. That’s precisely why Brady left! Brady is on a Bucs team with literally more receiver weapons than any team has ever assembled, so I would certainly HOPE he is having success if he can throw a forward pass. Brady has always had amazing teams and great coaches around him to succeed like anyone else.

        • Belichick has said and acted on the notion that he’d rather get rid of a player a year too early than a year too late (Richard Seymour). In previous cases, he’s had others to step in or ways to minimize their absence. Harder to do with a qb in general and especially Brady. I wouldn’t count out Belichick yet.

  2. Let’s never forget that Belichick was punished by the league for cheating. That is his legacy and it should be mentioned in every story that includes his name. I’m tired of the oddball genius narrative around Belichick.
