Tom Brady will have to retire immediately since he won’t be able to convince Bill Belichick to do another podcast appearance.
Fans of the New England Patriots and Tom Brady got a treat Monday night when Belichick appeared on the SiriusXM podcast “Let’s Go!” with Brady and co-host Jim Gray.
For a rare public talk with his former quarterback of 20 years, who announced his NFL retirement “for real” last week.
The entire episode is worth listening to, as it includes ex-Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski crashing the program from his car, renowned quarterback Peyton Manning trading insults with Brady, and Brady sharing an emotional moment with his parents.

“The best player. The most successful career. A wonderful, wonderful individual. It was a privilege and an honor for me to coach Tom. I suppose it has to come to an end at some point. It’s the best one yet. Tom, congratulations.”
Brady definitely appreciated Belichick’s words and became emotional as he thanked his old head coach. While Brady did not depart New England on the best of terms in 2020 free agency, it is evident that he and Belichick have a mutual appreciation and respect.
“I think it’s more a question of ‘What did he not do?'” When asked what Belichick did for him as a player, Brady responded.
Peyton Manning on how Brady influenced his free agency decision in 2012
“I’ve never told anyone this, but Tom was a significant reason I opted to stay in the AFC (and sign with the Denver Broncos) after leaving the Colts” (in free agency). I mean, I easily could have gone to a couple of NFC teams but I felt, ‘No, look, I’ve played against Tom a bunch and the Patriots and eventually you’re going to have to play them at some time. Let me try to earn it in the AFC by seeing them in the playoffs.
“I liked those games. That rivalry was fun to watch. That was one of the reasons I chose to stay in the AFC in Chapter Two.”
Manning accomplished his wish: as a member of the Broncos, he met Brady’s Patriots twice in the postseason and won both times, defeating New England in the 2013 AFC Championship Game and the 2015 AFC Championship Game, both in Denver.
