Tom Brady has publicly praised Bill Belichick before, but seldom has Brady offered it himself without the prodding of questions from the media. The same can be said of Belichick, whose reluctance to praise individual players is well documented.
Brady did go out of his way to sing Belichick’s praises this week while crediting his former coach for helping to inadvertently inspire his motivation to get into broadcasting.
