While many have declared Tom Brady to be the winner in the divorce with Bill Belichick, the contest isn’t over yet. While Doug Gottlieb agrees that Tom won the first year, we all know how long a contentious divorce can last for many years and Belichick has the Patriots on track to back in the playoffs with a rookie QB. History will be the final arbiter in this ongoing question despite the fact that many have already made up their minds.

Doug Gottlieb: “Everyone declared Tom Brady the winner in the divorce with Bill Belichick...year 1 of the divorce was won by Tom Brady, but post-divorce scorecards aren’t one year long...and what wins for you in the short term doesn’t always win for you in the long term.”
