After legendary QB Tom Brady heaped praise on Bill Belichick following his recent Patriots’ exit, Asante Samuel called both of them out

Bill Belichick’s departure after 24 historic seasons in New England garnered a lot of sympathetic send-offs and a myriad of memories from around the NFL. Not the least of which came from his all-everything QB Tom Brady, who has remained a fan of the hooded Darth Vader, despite leaving Foxboro to win a Lombardi Trophy in Tampa Bay.

Still Complaining About The Coach

Unfortunately for Brady and Belichick, former Pats cornerback Asante Samuel doesn’t share the same sentiment. At one time one of the franchise’s most valuable defensive players, he won two Super Bowl titles while playing under the legendary play-caller in New England.

Samuel left the franchise in March 2020 under less-than-amicable terms. And that has been a bee in his bonnet (at least as far as Bill Belichick is concerned) ever since.

“Tom Brady, I’m tired of all this positive (expletive) I keep hearing from you,” Asante Samuel posted to X on Friday. “Be real Homey. People want to hear the truth about (expletive)… the good and the bad.”

Departing The Dynasty In New England

The animosity apparently stems from Belichick’s decision to move on from Asante Samuel following the 2007 season. After the DB dropped a sure interception that led to the Giants coming back and winning Super Bowl XLII, the Pats coach seemed to blame Samuel for the loss – allowing him to move on to Philadelphia as a free agent that offseason.

Samuel has clearly not forgotten about that. And after years of giving Brady the brunt of the credit for the Patriots dynasty, it appears his hatred of Belichick is leading him to cut ties with everyone who used to don the Patriots red, white, and blue.
