HOUSTON – Breaking tradition and changing up his style Patriot’s head coach Bill Belichick requested starting Quarterback Tom Brady to break out a nice pair of sleeves for Super Bowl LI against the Atlanta Falcons.
Tom Brady obliged and had this to say about Belichick, “The man gets what he wants from me. He knows when to switch up the plays and is a winner. If he wants to wear sleeves to the big game we have to trust him as a team.” He then turned the iron setting to ‘cotton’ and gently spritzed some water before smoothly easing out the wrinkles on the never worn sleeves.
When asked what preparation in terms of game play Brady had been discussing with Belichick for Sunday Brady said, “most of our conversations have been really focused on the sleeves situation. Yeah, pretty much just the sleeves.”
