Last week, ESPN released an article detailing the reported rift between Patriots owner Robert Kraft, QB Tom Brady and HC Bill Belichick.
The issues ranged from the trading of Jimmy G, Belichick’s personality and Tom Brady’s personal trainer. Things have reportedly gotten so bad that Belichick was even rumored to wanting to coach the Giants.
Now, the Patriots big three are scheduled to sit down and talk things about once the season ends:

Right now the plan is to address these issues after the season, but you have to assume any loss within the next three games could lead to all sides reaching their boiling point, and ultimately end the Patriots dynasty.
It is already expected that Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia will become a head coach with either the Detroit Lions or the New York Giants. Meanwhile, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is the favorite to become the next coach of the Indianapolis Colts.
Robert Kraft has already said Bill Belichick will return to the Patriots next season but one can imagine if the Patriots don’t end up winning the Super Bowl, many will look at this potential rift as the cause of it.
