Belichick was a genius all along - He wanted Brady to start, even before Bledsoe got injured

According to Charlie Weis, who was the Patriots' offensive coordinator that season, Brady almost went into the year as the team's No. 3 quarterback, which means he wouldn't have taken over as the starter after Drew Bledsoe went down with an injury against the Jets in Week 2.

There's long been a rumor that Bill Belichick liked Brady so much that he wanted to start the sixth-round pick over Bledsoe, but Weis says that's not true.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Weis said there was no chance Brady was going to start over a healthy Bledsoe. Weis also added that Brady barely hung on to the No. 2 spot.

"Oh no, no, no, no, [Brady] wasn't better than Bledsoe," Weis said. "In fact he wasn't much better than [Huard]. Bledsoe was clearly the starter. The No. 2 spot, that's where the competition was. We really could have flipped a coin to pick the second guy. We ended up picking Tommy -- but it was really close."
