Tom Brady saved Bill Belichick's job. Bill Belichick was 5-11 in his first season as the coach of the New England Patriots. Belichick was 0-2 in his second season when Drew Bledsoe was injured so badly that both his football career and his life was on the line. Belichick knew he was on a short leash—or thin ice—and could be fired at the end of the season. Not many knew it at the time, but Belichick wanted to open the season with the quarterback that was once a 6th round afterthought as his starting quarterback: Tom Brady. Brady owed Belichick a lot for drafting and developing him and Brady paid him back by saving his coaching career.
