Nobody is safe from Bill Belichick’s wrath. It doesn’t matter if you are up by 3 points or up by 50, if you make a mistake you will be hearing from Bill. Nothing short of 100% on every single down matters to Belichick until the game is over.
Former New England Patriots fullback Heath Evans shared a funny story about Belichick giving Brady a hard time during their undefeated 2007 regular season.
“I remember it was ’07. We smoked a team by like 50 points and Bill comes in and he’s mouthing off at Brady about something,” Evans said
“I’m trying to remember how it started, but he’s like, ‘If you weren’t so worried about you and Gisele’s next GQ magazine, maybe, just maybe, you wouldn’t have thrown that interception. What is this Christmas? It’s October, Brady. Christmas come early or something? I can go somewhere for Foxboro High and get someone to throw that ball better than you.’ So just like going at him, you know?”
3 Super Bowl victories and an undefeated season at the time was not enough leeway for Brady to slack off on Belichick’s team.
Evans also had words for those who say that playing in New England is not fun.
“When you’re a winner in your heart, there’s no better place to play,” he said.
