Yes, in the sense that Brady has worked within Tom Brady Rob Gronkowski Greetings from Tompa Bay shirt a system for his entire career that has made his career far more than it otherwise would have been. But no, if you’re trying to argue that he only had a successful career because he was lucky enough to be drafted by Bill Belichick. Tom Brady is clearly a very talented quarterback, a man who has put up big numbers with a series of good-but-not-great wide receivers and running backs behind him. In 2007, when he had Randy Moss as a teammate, Brady led his team to a 16–0 regular season. He’d almost certainly have more than five Super Bowl rings if he’d had Randy Moss on the Patriots for more than that one season.
Brady has benefitted from playing his entire career for a coach Tom Brady Rob Gronkowski Greetings from Tompa Bay shirt whose system gets the most out of the available talent, who has a great eye for unappreciated talents on other teams, and who always molds the team in the best possible manner. Belichick and his system are so good that when he lost Tom Brady for the entire 2008 season, Matt Cassel stepped in and led the Patriots to an 11–5 record. Cassel is 25–40 in the 65 starts that he has undertaken for other teams during his career. It’s been like that with every non-Brady quarterback Belichick has ever had to start. He’s won about two-thirds of the games. Peyton Manning could only dream that he had a coach and players like that around him. He led the Colts to nine straight playoff berths and then missed the 2011 season. The Colts went 2–14.
