Warwick. Just need to show up for the booksigning!
Everyone knows that a championship organization cannot be established in the NFL without two major components: an elite coach and a franchise quarterback. Today, the New England Patriots have both in their head coach and team builder Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady. From their humble beginnings together in 2000, the duo quickly rose through the ranks of the NFL and have now won more games than any coach-quarterback team in league history. Tom Brady, who has played his entire professional career under Belichick’s guidance, has won 77% of his games, more than other legendary quarterbacks such as Roger Staubach (74%), Joe Montana (71%), and Peyton Manning (70%). But how did this happen? How have Belichick and Brady been able to sustain a winning record, and how long will they be able to continue on this streak? What were, and are now more than ever, some of the challenges that threatened the staying power of this historic partnership?
These questions—and the dynamic between two of football’s most iconic champions—is explored in bestselling author and sports radio talk show host Michael Holley’s book BELICHICK AND BRADY: Two Men, the Patriots, and How They Revolutionized Football, which tells the epic, inside story of the rise and dominance of Brady, Belichick, and the New England Patriots like no other book or documentary has ever done before.
Holley has interviewed dozens of current and former Patriots players, coaches, and executives to provide an unprecedented portrait of Belichick and Brady. Timed to the beginning of the 2016 NFL season and to Brady’s first game back after his controversial “deflategate” suspension, BELICHICK AND BRADY reveals how their partnership has yielded four Super bowl rings, a feat unsurpassed by any other NFL team in recent history, and explores fascinating behind-the-scene details about their partnership, ambitions, and how they strategized together and weathered dramatic public controversies. In Patriot Reign (2004), Holley wrote a bestselling look inside what makes the Patriot organization tick and win. In War Room (2011), Holley explored the draft and personnel strategy that makes the Patriots win year in and year out. Now, in BELICHICK & BRADY, he will examine how two of the most polarizing figures in football have mastered team-building on an elite level and formed the core of what is arguably the greatest dynasty in the NFL.
Michael Holley is the author of the New York Times bestsellers Patriot Reign, War Room, Never Give Up (with Tedy Bruschi), and Red Sox Rule. He was a Boston Globe sportswriter for ten years, and is the cohost of the Dale & Holley show on Boston sports radio station WEEI. Holley lives in Boston, Massachusetts, with his three children. Belichick and Brady is the epic, inside story of the rise and dominance of Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the New England Patriots. Featuring interviews from Patriots players and coaches, Holley presents a fascinating portrait of the partnership between Tom Brady, the Patriots' star quarterback, and Bill Belichick, the team's prolific coach. Chockful of behind-the-scenes anecdotes and information exploring how they have strategized and weathered controversies, all culminating into four Superbowl rings, this is required reading for any Patriots fan and students of the game of football. By examining how the relationship between this dynamic quarterback and coach duo, Holley explores exactly how these two men have formed the core of the greatest dynasty in the modern-day NFL. Great holiday gift for a Patriots fans.
