BOSTON — If you believe in the Patriot Way — which I do — then you have to side with Bill Belichick in the latest dramatic event to unfold down in Foxboro.
According to a Boston Globe report this week, Belichick has banned Tom Brady’s personal trainer, Alex Guerrero, from the Patriots’ sideline and the team plane.
I call him Brady’s “trainer” because, well, that’s what he is.
By now, you know about Guerrero’s history. You know about his relationship with the Patriots’ franchise quarterback. And you know that, whatever it is they’re doing, it’s working.
Brady is 40 years old. He leads the NFL with 4,163 pass yards this season and is most likely going to be crowned league MVP.
And now, Guerrero works with more than just Brady. He’s also working with other Patriots players, including Rob Gronkowski.
All of that said, it’s perfectly fine to side with Belichick for banning Guerrero, while at the same time, believe the relationship between Belichick and Brady is still strong.
