The party’s over. Tom Brady proved he could win without Patriots coach Bill Belichick. Bill can’t win without Tom.

Now Bill has given the keys to a rookie who should be sitting and watching a veteran. The game has passed Belichick by like a memory in the NFL’s rearview mirror.

This year’s schedule and roster will prove a challenge just to win football games.

Thanks, Tom, for the memories.
