The New England Patriots are one of the most interesting franchises in the league, with their culture of winning and ability to constantly be near the top of the standings being the envy of nearly all the other 31 teams.
Two of the constants at the Patriots are head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady, both of whom don't seem to be diminishing at all as the years roll on.
When thinking about Brady and Belichick, one would assume that they have an incredible relationship and barely disagree at all. According to Chad Ochocinco, however, that couldn't be further from the truth.

The former NFL wide receiver appeared on Undisputed on Fox Sports 1 today and shed a little light on what goes on behind the scenes in Foxboro. Apparently, Belichick has absolutely no problem shouting at Brady.
According to Ochocinco, on his very first day with the Patriots, before they had done any work out on the practice field, Belichick got the team into a film room meeting of the playoff game they lost from the season before and proceeded to lay into Brady for his poor play in the game.
A lot of coaches think of a new season as a blank slate, a fresh place to start. Not Belichick, who straight away got his team reflecting on their exit from Super Bowl contention.
Ochocinco added that meeting had him walking on eggshells for his entire stay in New England. Considering the fact that he only managed 15 catches for the Patriots, Chad may have been playing with those shells in his cleats as well.
