Tom Brady and Bill Belichick’s secret? It’s not personal; it’s just business

Sally Jenkins on the relationship between the coach and his star QB:

“They have never even gone out to lunch or dinner,” according to Brady’s father. “That’s not what they do.”

And, some history on the way Brady manages the team:

According to someone who knows both men, the tone was set during Brady’s rookie season, when he sat impatiently in meetings that would halt while former starter Drew Bledsoe left the room for a bathroom break. Brady determined then not to be a quarterback who could make a room revolve around him, even unintentionally.

Love Brady or hate him, you have to love this.
