- During the 2000 draft, the Pats were trying to decide which QB to
select in the 6th round. They had narrowed their choice to two players.
BB conferred with the late Dick Reihbein, then the QB coach, since he
had interviewed and worked out both. He preferred the guy from
Michigan, Tom Brady. BB concurred, and the rest is history. Oddly, the
other guy will be in for a tryout today - Tim Rattay, along with Chris
Simms. Just thought it was interesting.
