For years upon years, the New England Patriots reigned supreme over the NFL under the leadership of Tom Brady and the mastermind behind the team, HC Bill Belichick. Although the years of dominance of the Patriots Dynasty are long over, the Belichick era in New England isn’t over yet. With his latest prodigy taking over the reins from Brady, the GOAT had to step in to help out. 

The legendary Tom Brady was seen spending time with Bill Belichick’s new prodigy and his own successor, Mac Jones. Drafted in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, Jones came over from the highly successful Alabama Crimson Tide football program to join the Patriots. After being slated as the successor to the greatest player of all time, Jones sent fans into a frenzy after receiving a visit from Brady.

But as images of the meetup between Brady and Jones emerged on the internet, NFL fans were sent into a frenzy, with many of them offering their real opinion about the QB duo.

Many see this as a passing of the torch moment, where the torch of greatness and leadership is handed down from one generation to the next.
