Tom Brady propelled the New England Patriots to unparalleled success. And Robert Kraft wishes he didn’t have to leave.
The Patriots had unparalleled success over their 19-year dynasty. They played in nine Super Bowls, more than any other NFL franchise, and won a league-record six (tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers). They also had 19 consecutive winning seasons, 17 division titles (including 11 consecutive from 2009 to 2019 and 16 when Brady played), 13 AFC Championship Game appearances (including eight consecutive from 2011 to 2018), and the only undefeated 16-game regular season in 2007.
Happy 68th birthday Bill Belichick!

Robert Kraft was upset Tom Brady had to leave
LeSean McCoy opened about the time he bumped into Patriots owner Robert Kraft after Tom Brady signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“‘I love Tommy,’” McCoy recalls Kraft lamenting. “‘I’m mad he left. I told Bill [Belichick], damn it, you let Tom go win a championship. It’s time for you to go win one.’”

LeSean McCoy then went on to play with Tom Brady and according to the former RB, Brady is the greatest leader he has ever played for.
