Book: Belichick and Brady: Two Men, the Patriots and How They Revolutionized Football

Michael Holley is co-host of the sports talk show “Dale & Holley with Keefe” on WEEI. He is the author of War Room: The Legacy of Bill Belichick and the Art of Building the Perfect Team and Patriot Reign: Bill Belichick, the coaches, and the Players Who Built a Champion.

No head coach-quarterback pair has been more successful in NFL history than Bill Belichick and Tom Brady of the New England Patriots. They have won five Super Bowls, seven AFC championships, and fourteen division titles. Michael Holley takes us inside their relationship, dissecting how these men and their team came to dominate football.

Belichick and Brady have set the bar high for excellence in a league designed for parity. They have rarely been understood. Based on dozens of interviews with former and current players, coaches, and executives, Belichick and Brady is an eye-opening look at the minds, motives, and wild ambitions of two men who have left an indelible mark on the game of football.
