Since 2001, the New England Patriots have dominated the NFL. Coach Bill Belichick and Quarterback Tom Brady have been elevated to legendary status and are arguable considered the greatest of all time at their respective positions. Year after year, the dynasty has stood tall, somehow overcoming aging players, losing vets to free agency and the big egos that come with being the best. But according to a recent bombshell article published by ESPN’s Seth Wickersham, a crack may being finally forming.

Wickersham claims that Jimmy Garoppolo, the quarterback Belichick has been grooming for years to replace Brady, has driven a wedge between the iconic duo. Brady wants to play for another half decade, and the young protege Garoppolo threatened that. According to Wickersham, Brady went over Belichick’s head to the owner, and forced the Patriots to trade Garoppolo away, effectively eliminating his competition.

This reported power move by Brady has caused wild speculation that Brady and Belichick could split up as soon as next year. Sid Murthy (12) thinks these rumors are overblown.

”I don’t buy it. Even if there is disagreement it won’t be enough to cause the dynasty to come down, their dynasty is going to continue for years to come,” Murthy said.
