A lot has been made of the reportedly tenuous relationship between New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, head coach Bill Belichick, and quarterback Tom Brady following an ESPN article that shed light on hard feelings behind the scenes between the powerful group. While the trio has denied the severity of the reported complications, murmurs have picked back up in wake up the team's Super Bowl LII loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

On Monday, Kraft downplayed any rumblings about drama in New England while confirming that the men have met, but he did acknowledge that losing the Super Bowl has taken a toll. From ProFootballTalk's Darin Gantt:

“We have meetings all the time… The residual of this loss was hard on everyone,” he said. “But I see that as a high-class problem… The fact that we lost and we lost the way we did, I still haven’t gotten over it.”

On Sunday, Belichick told reporters that he wants to learn more about Brady's future plans directly rather than trying to make an interpretation based on his “Tom Vs. Time” series on Facebook.

Near the end of Monday's interview, Kraft was asked for his thoughts on Belichick's decision to bench Malcolm Butler for Super Bowl LII as well as him pulling the trigger on a Jimmy Garoppolo trade despite Brady's uncertain long-term future. He had the head coach's back.

“I have faith in Bill as a coach,” he said. “He’s done pretty well for us.”

Regardless of what's actually happening behind the scenes, there's no denying that Kraft, Belichick, and Brady are the most successful owner-coach-quarterback duo in the history of the NFL, winning a ridiculous 5 Lombardi Trophies while dominating the AFC for nearly two decades.
