Tom Brady is the quarterback of NFL's New England Patriots team. He is considered one of the greatest quarterback of all time, with five Super Bowl titles. Bill Belichick is the coach of the same team. He is considered to be the best coach in the history of the NFL. The evil genius of the league. No where else in sports is there a man so meticulously well-prepared, so flawless in his execution, and so adept in his innovation
