HBO and The Ringer’s Bill Simmons is joined by Cousin Sal to discuss an end of an era: Tom Brady confirmed he is leaving the New England Patriots. They also discuss a few NFL trades including Stefon Diggs to the Buffalo Bills, DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals, David Johnson to the Texans, QB signings, Parent Corner and more (2:57). Then in honor of the GOAT’s departure, Bill reads an article he wrote back in 2001 before the infamous Patriots-Raiders AFC divisional playoff game, describing the long and sad road to what would become the Patriots dynasty (54:45).
