For the first time in two decades, Tom Brady will play for a team not named the New England Patriots, as he has all but officially agreed to a $30 million per year contract that will see him join Bruce Arians and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
As a result of this move, Bill Belichick will start a season without Brady as his starting quarterback for the first time since the 2000 season with Drew Bledsoe under center.
Fans of all 32 NFL teams have been trying to argue if the main driving force behind the Patriots dynasty was the head coach who steered the ship for two decades or the quarterback implementing his plans on the field.
All of these barside debates will finally be settled over the next few years. Belichick will finally get a chance to flex his coaching muscles free of the aura of Brady, while the 42-year-old will be freed from the restraints of Belichick's system in New England.
Belichick still has his great defense, despite losing a ton of talent to the open market. Meanwhile, Brady is in an offense that can help a quarterback throw for 4,000 yards with their eyes closed. Both of these guys have ample means to be productive over the next few years.
If one of them adds a seventh ring, we'll finally get our answer of which part pf the Brady-Belichick duo was most responsible for the Patriots' two decades of dominance.
