Tom Brady will make his return to New England next weekend with his Buccaneers traveling to Foxborough to take on the Patriots. While we’re still over a week away from the matchup, plenty of the focus has already turned toward Brady’s homecoming.
Earlier this week Brady’s father, Tom Brady Sr., made some interesting comments about his son feeling vindicated after leaving New England. Now Brady’s longtime personal trainer, Alex Guerrero, has stepped into a bit of a spotlight with some interesting comments about Brady’s relationship with Bill Belichick, particularly about how Belichick treated his star quarterback.
According to Guerrero, Belichick didn’t treat Brady like the superstar he was, or even as an older, more mature football player. Instead, Belichick allegedly treated him just like any other 20 something year old on the roster.
“The interesting thing I think there — and this is just me, an outsider looking in — it was like Bill never really … I think his emotions or feelings never evolved with age,” Guerrero told the Boston Herald. “I think in time, with Tom, as Tom got into his late 30s or early 40s, I think Bill was still trying to treat him like that 20-year-old kid that he drafted. And all the players, I think, realized Tom was different.
“He’s older, so he should be treated differently. And all the players, none of them would have cared that he was treated differently. I think that was such a Bill thing. He never evolved. So you can’t treat someone who’s in his 40s like they’re 20. It doesn’t work.”
Some may read Guerrero’s comments and not believe them, it’s hard to imagine Brady not getting any sort of special treatment for what he was able to accomplish during his time in New England. On the flip side, maybe Belichick treated Brady as just another player was the franchise’s true key to success.
