Tom Brady’s healthy lifestyle book, “The TB12 Method,” went on sale earlier this week, but don’t expect Bill Belichick to be picking up a copy.
The Patriots coach was asked at his Wednesday press conference if he was interested in reading the book, which details Brady’s plant-based diet and his workout routine — two things the quarterback claims has helped him maintain his playing abilities.
“We see Tom every day,” Belichick said. “I don’t really feel like I need to read a book.”

The book, which was at the top of Amazon’s pre-order list, is not that expensive. Yet again, maybe Belichick doesn’t want to read about how beer and cheese is bad for you.
The rookie first-rounder isn’t consistent yet, and turnovers are a concern — Watson fumbled twice and threw an ugly interception off his back foot before adding another pick on a Hail Mary at the end of the game — but he offers infinitely more upside compared to Savage. The 35-yard pass Watson completed to Ryan Griffin across his body from the numbers on one side of the field to the other on second-and-22 was one of the most impressive passes of the day.
As for the Patriots, the concern has to be that several of their stars aren’t playing very well this season. Devin McCourty, the leader of what was supposed to be one of the best secondaries in football, has been a mess and was victimized for at least one touchdown pass on Sunday. Solder has been out of sorts all season. You have to assume they’ll figure things out, given that the Patriots always do over the course of a campaign, but this isn’t the Pats team people expected might flirt with a 16-0 record.
