  1. Us smart folks know this is going to be a long-term thing. We’ll let tw@tter and msespn declare someone the winner not even haltway through year one. People these days are absolute crackheaded in their impatience and lack of ability to think even one step ahead.

  2. The war isn’t indefinite. The war ends when Brady retires. If Belichick somehow gets another elite QB in 5 years and wins another Super Bowl how would he be winning the war with Brady at that point if Brady is already retired? Everyone is getting a glimpse of what a Belichick team without a hall of fame QB looks like. Kind of looking like the Browns team Belichick coached? It would just be further proof that Belichick needed Brady a lot more than Brady needed Belichick. If Brady were to win a Super Bowl in Tampa(which I don’t think is going to happen) and Belichick is sitting at home watching the playoffs I would say there is a clear winner.

  3. You gotta give Belichick 3 years to replace his franchise QB and get back to AFC Championship level teams. Can’t we allow that, at least? Also, you have to look at the Covid opt outs from the Patriots. I would even be willing to give Belichick 4 years. In this time, the final chapter on Brady’s career should be written.
