Tom Brady on relationship with Bill Belichick: ‘I love him’
There have been signs of some very obvious tension between Tom Brady and Bill Belichick over the past year or so, but the star quarterback insists any issues the two future Hall of Famers have had are those typical of any long-term relationship.
In an interview with Oprah Winfrey that will air in its entirety on Sunday, Brady was asked if there are any problems between him and Belichick. He reiterated what he told reporters during minicamp earlier this month.
.@Oprah asks Tom Brady, “Is something going on with you & Belichick?”
TB: “Umm…No. I mean, I love him. I love that he’s an incredible coach, mentor for me. And he’s pushed me in a lot of ways. Like everything, we don’t agree on absolutely everything. But that’s relationships.”

Brady clearly is not happy that his personal trainer, Alex Guerrero, had some of his access to the team limited in recent years. There’s a definite power struggle going on in New England, and time will tell if it has any impact on the Patriots’ chances of returning to the Super Bowl this upcoming season.
If all was well between Brady, Belichick and the team, Brady’s future offseason plans would look a lot different.
