wishes drew noticed him instead of sweet & sour

I’m actually skeptical that Belichick at this stage in his career and at his age can rebuild this thing. I’m not fond of the quote he said a few years ago that said “At this stage I only want to coach the players I want to coach”. It’s not a quote that he should have said.
I thought this is the largest question looming over the team the next half-decade. Part of it is wrapped in the Brady vs. BB debate, but the other more nuanced issue to me is whether BB's strengths were suited for having a GOAT foundation, and mixing and matching around him. Did Brady allow for BB's personnel strength of never overpaying, and benefitting from players willing to take less in order to fit around the GOAT and the winning. To play into the quote, did BB have the luxury of only looking for his players, when rebuilding requires a whole different mentality.This will be somebody's sig someday.
