FOXBORO, MA (August 21, 2015) – This just in. New England head coach Bill Belichick will start Brady in the season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers, regardless of the outcome of the current court case pending in New York City.

Brady will be under center even if he is still required by the court to serve his four-game suspension, punishments be damned.

He's a crafty one.

He’s a crafty one.

Belichick signed Brady Quinn today, meaning the one-time Notre Dame star and current NFL Network analyst will be a New England Patriot and flaunt the ruling of Roger Goodell by wearing Brady on the back of his jersey and wear the number 12 in the season opener.

The move comes on the heels of statements by New England owner Robert Kraft who said he was “wrong to put my faith” in the NFL, so Belichick is taking it one step further.

Belichick said he is determined to have a Brady on the field when the NFL starts the 50th season of the Super Bowl era on September 10.

Said Belichick: “We always stick to our plans, which is that Brady is our starter. All we ask him to do is to do his job.”

Asked one reporter, “Hasn’t all this gotten out of hand?”

Belichick responded: “We’re on to Pittsburgh. Next question.”

Further plans.

It seems that starting Brady is only part of the plan. The Patriots are changing the name of its stadium, currently called Gillette Stadium, to Brady Companies Stadium, named after the local heating and air conditioning company in Lowell, Massachusetts.

In addition, the national anthem at the season opener will be sung by Irish folk singer Paul Brady, with the remaining cast of The Brady Bunch being made honorary captains for the opening coin flip.

It was also rumored at press time that former New Orleans defensive end Brady Smith would come out of retirement and sign with the Patriots. Stealing Share has not been able to confirm this report.

The NFL has refused comment.
