Bill Belichick fondly recalls six Super Bowl victories as his favorite Tom Brady memory

Tom Brady falls in the list of those few football icons who surprisingly slipped down in the NFL Draft. Nevertheless, a recent audio tape released by the New England Patriots showcased how the retired veteran didn’t mind getting drafted by the franchise in the sixth round.

Instead, Brady was eyeing to leave his mark in the league, and his 23-season illustrious career proved how the quarterback was successful in proving his words. The Patriots owner Robert Kraft has already announced to honor their former star in their Week 1 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Meanwhile, the franchise’s head coach Bill Belichick couldn’t halt from remembering the immense contribution the dual threat left in the league.

Bill Belichick reveals favorite Tom Brady memory

During his recent appearance on WEEI’s The Greg Hill Show on Monday, Belichick was asked about his favorite memory with Brady.

“Well, there are six of them that come to mind. Can’t say enough about Tom — what he’s meant to this organization, what he’s meant to me personally,” Bill said.

He continued how the California Cool used to show coolness in every aspect of the game and give tough competition to the rivals in crucial moments by applying his football acumen.

“He just epitomized everything you would want in a player — his work ethic, his ability to handle and process a lot of things on and off the field. His critical playmaking ability, instinctiveness and anticipation and decision making at the most critical times in the biggest games in the team’s history not to mention the seasons.”

The former Patriots dual-threat left no stone unturned to showcase his full potential on the field. With his phenomenal track record of success, Tom is sure to get inducted to the prestigious Hall of Fame title, and New England’s coach said the footballer deserves the title of the NFL GOAT as well.

“For so many years, he set a standard of daily performance which turned into yearly performance which turned into not only a Hall of Fame career, but probably the best career of all time in the National Football League.”

With the feat of having 15 Pro Bowl selections, two NFL Offensive Player of the Year honors along with the titles of five Super Bowl MVPs, and three regular-season MVPs, Tom Terrific surely deserves to earn this heavy praise from his former HC.

How many Super Bowls did Bill Belichick win with Tom Brady?

The Belichick and Brady duo pushed the Patriots to nine Super Bowl appearances, more than any other NFL franchise, and secured victories in six of them to tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the record of winning the most number of Vince Lombardi trophies in the league. Besides that, the pair also enjoyed 19 winning seasons along with 17 AFC East titles.

Both the coach and quarterback duo illuminated brightly in their particular position. The veteran HC holds the records for ensuring the most playoff wins by a coach (31) and Super Bowl appearances by an individual (12). Meanwhile, the 46-year-old signal-caller holds the QB records for career wins (264), regular season wins (230) as well as playoff wins (34).
