Joe Montana has been in Tom Brady’s shoes and he thinks it would be a mistake if he left the New England Patriots.
Super Bowl week is upon us and for the first time in a long time, the New England Patriots aren’t in the game. Still, they are finding ways to dominate the headlines.
The question for Patriots fans throughout 2020 will be about Tom Brady’s status on the team come next season.

Brady is in a unique situation. For the first time in his career, he is a free agent.
Now even though this situation is foreign to Brady it isn’t to some famous quarterbacks, one of those being Joe Montana.
Montana spent the majority of his legendary career with the San Francisco 49ers. He won 4 Super Bowls with the team.
But then Montana played his last two seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. He shouldn’t have gone out that way.
"“Don’t — if you don’t have to. It’s a process to go through, and it takes time to get used to the team. I was fortunate because (former 49ers quarterbacks coach) Paul Hackett was there running the offense, and so I was pretty familiar with probably three-quarters of the offense going in. And, if they let [Brady] have his own offense (with a new team), yeah, that makes it a little bit easier. But still, the transition of moving …“I just can’t see how they would let him leave there, myself.”"
Well, I’m glad to see Montana help the Patriots out. Tom Brady might not listen to the average fan but it is hard not to listen to the 2nd greatest quarterback to ever play the game.
It will definitely be a difficult transition if Brady were to leave the Patriots. The offense was made for him to succeed. It’s an offense only Brady can run.
Whatever team Brady went to would have to go through a major offensive overhaul or Brady will have to learn a whole new offense.
If Brady does leave New England I expect his career to end just like Montana’s. He will end up disappointed and wishing that he stayed with the Patriots. Hopefully, he doesn’t make the same mistake that Montana did.
