Former NFL wide receiver Julian Edelman posted a wholesome video of New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Tom Brady.

Edelman’s video showed the days when Belichick was first taking over as the Patriots’ head coach and the team subsequently drafting Tom Brady with the No. 199 pick in 2000. The video has Natalie Merchant’s “Kind and Generous” playing over Belichick and Brady complimenting each other.

“In games where Tom Brady starts, the Patriots are 187 and 127 against the spread,” the video captions read. “And fun fact … Tom Brady has never beaten the New England Patriots. Patriots +7.”

Brady, who now stars for Tampa Bay, played with the Patriots and won six Super Bowls for them. Edelman was on three of Brady’s Patriots Super Bowl teams and retired before the start of the 2021 season.

Edelman wrote that Sunday night’s game was like picking between “mom and dad.”

Earlier in the week, the former wide receiver tweeted a famous scene from NBC’s “The Office” to describe what the game was going to be. Edelman likened the relationship of Brady and Belichick to the tumultuous relationship between Michael Scott and Jan Levinson. He dubbed it the “GOAT BOWL.”

Brady will be playing the Patriots at Gillette Stadium for the first time since signing with the Bucs in March 2020.
