Bill Belichick’s Patriot Way has delivered unmatched success over the past two decades, with the legendary coach and quarterback Tom Brady winning six Super Bowls and appearing in three more.
Former wide receiver Wes Welker, now the 49ers’ receivers coach, thrived as one of Brady’s main weapons, catching 672 passes for 7,459 yards and 37 touchdowns in six seasons in New England.
But Welker and the Patriots had a messy breakup when Belichick chose not to attempt to re-sign the slot receiver when he hit the open market in 2013.
Belichick’s way, while proven effective, can wear on players and Welker doesn’t subscribe to the no-nonsense approach to coaching.
