That would be some stealth sass, Tom Brady.
Fans and news outlets say the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback trolled the Atlanta Falcons, the team’s next opponent, in a video he posted Monday. (Watch the clip below.)
But it wasn’t what Brady said in the video, which included highlights of the Buc’s season-opening victory over Dallas. It was the time of day that observers spotted on his computer monitor: 3:28.
That was interpreted as a dig at the Falcons blowing a 28-3 lead to Brady’s Patriots in the 2017 Super Bowl. New England won, 34-28.
Who knew that the mere time of day ― planned or not ― could be weaponized?
