Patriots legend Tom Brady drops brutally honest take after Cowboys hand Bill Belichick 155th career loss

The New England Patriots from 2000 to 2020 were a thing to watch, and one of the main reasons behind their dominance for decades in the NFL was the phenomenal combo of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. This duo led the Patriots to multiple Super Bowl glories, but after the quarterback’s departure from the franchise, they are losing that charm day by day.

After losing the five-time Super Bowl MVP, Belichick has been continuing his experiment with the Patriots’ offensive line, and the result is terrible. Following the team’s 3-38 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, TB12 did not shy away from speaking his mind about the loss and its implications.

Tom Brady reflects on Patriots’ struggles

New England has never performed so poorly when Brady was at the helm. During a recent episode of his Let’s Go Podcast, he shed light on his opinion about the Patriots’ recent loss against the Dallas Cowboys saying a loss fell too heavy on the players as players toil hard for weeks to have a good winning streak.

“It’s tough. I mean, losing in the NFL’s tough…And believe me, if you’re part of a loss you don’t care about anyone else’s losses. You just care about your loss. If you win you look around and go, ‘All right, who else lost?’ So, in every building with a loss, it’s tough. It’s tough because you spent all week preparing and it didn’t go the way you wanted.”

Tom Terrific went on to say when he was still playing in the league, such defeats didn’t make him lose his cool. However, now it is becoming hard for him to observe such losses as he has to digest these moments as a pure observer.

“When I was in it, I didn’t necessarily realize it because I had a lot of control..I was the one behind the center. I had a very big impact on every single game. I have zero impact on any games [now]. I just watch. It’s a hard thing because you just want to pull your hair out and say ‘what the f**k is going on here?’”

The 46-year-old also had a terrible 3-38 loss against the New Orleans Saints when he was playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, albeit he later overcame the embarrassment by securing the Super Bowl title for the Bucs in the same season.

Patriots’ Bill Belichick closing in on unwanted record

Misfortune started to strike Belichick after the California Cool left for Tampa Bay as since then, the HC have gone 7-9 in 2020, 10-7 in 2021 as well as 8-9 in 2022. Prior to the 2023 NFL season, the vet was closer to the all-time record for losses as he ranked fifth in terms of regular-season and total defeats with 152 and 165 respectively. He was only 13 losses away from both marks.

Pats Pulpit

With New England’s 1-3 defeats after their week 4 loss, the 71-year-old is very close to earning the infamous title soon, and also the team has been 1-3 for three straight years. Meanwhile, his team’s 35-point loss against the Cowboys marked the worst loss of his 29-year career as an NFL head coach, and it marked his 155th career loss, per ESPN Stats and Info.

With so many bad records in the bag, will Belichick’s squad be able to save him from the upcoming humiliation of embracing the all-time record for losses? What do you think? You can share your thoughts in the comments.
