One of the more persistent rumors about the Patriots during the Bill Belichick and Tom Brady era is that it will end simultaneously.
The popular thinking goes that when Bill retires, Tom retires or that when Tom finally hangs up the cleats, Bill hangs up the clipboard. They will then both presumably ride off into the sunset together while an orchestral score booms from Gillette.
When asked about that possibility, Tom Brady had this to say, per the Patriots twitter feed:
No matter how it goes down, we Pats fans should cherish every moment of the Brady-Belichick era, because no matter how it ends, it won't last forever.
Do you think that Tom Brady and Bill Belichick retire from the NFL at the same time?
