Tom Brady reveals secret weakness

It hasn’t always been the avocado ice cream that made Tom Brady green.

The Patriots quarterback was waxing nostalgic Tuesday about visiting relatives in Minnesota when he was a child, and recalled his uncles putting him through a rite of passage.

Via Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, Brady remembered his first experience with chewing tobacco while fishing with his uncles.

“I’ve had a lot of great memories,” Brady said of Minnestoa. “I remember my uncles gave me chewing tobacco for the first time when I was really young. We were fishing. This is a pretty good story. We went sunfishing, and on the way home, I said, ‘I want to try it.’ They said, ‘Look, if we give it to you, you can’t spit it out until you get home.’

“It was like a 30-minute to my grandpa’s farm. So of course, they give it to me and within five minutes, I’m outside the car throwing up all over the place. I don’t think I’ve had much chewing tobacco since then.”

Brady’s uncles deserve credit for being good uncles, and helping broaden young Tom’s horizons. Even if it meant washing the truck.

  1. The bag says 40 cents off. But if you buy chewing tobacco you actually have no cents.

    OK. I’m being a hypocrite. I still smoke like a neanderthal. I too have no sense.

    If you list all the current QB’s in the league in 2017.

    I would bet that when Tom Brady retires he will do so if 60% of them all will be gone.

    Long live the GOAT

    I’d bet too that Brady has never faced a pro bowl qb from the AFC East more than twice in his career. Tough Division that is to win.

    Facts for you: his regular season winning percentage vs. the AFC East is 79%. His regular season winning percentage vs. the entire NFL is 78%.

    Then what about the 4 divisions in the NFL that he has an even higher winning percentage against? Those would be the AFC North (25-5), AFC South (24-5), NFC East (13-3), and NFC North (14-2)?

    Imagine if he played against the demonstrably WORSE competition in those divisions?

  4. He and Belichick are saying all the right things.

    As a Minnesotan I can guarantee this will be a home Super Bowl for the Patriots.

    The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

    SKOL PATS.

  5. wtf is Sunfishing
    ——–
    A sunfish is pretty much exactly like a bluegill except instead of bluegills they have rainbow colored gills and they are called sunfish.

    So’s the AFC title, he’s won that half the years he’s played. He also beat that other conference 5 times out of 8 so there’s that. Guess the entire league is pretty much poofs.

  7. Finally me and Brady have something in common, much to my chagrin. Different characters with same ending. Grandad, his friends, a pouch of Redman, and a curious kid. Turned green.

  8. “Correction: Just throw him even the tiniest of blitzes and he caves.”

    Lolz dude you want to hate Brady fine, but please, do so from an informed position.

    Brady’s QB rating is well over 100 when he’s blitzed, higher than when he’s not blitzed. But yeah, he “caves”, sure. You might try living in reality and not the fantasyland you’re in where Brady is the worst QB ever simply because you don’t like him.

    Still unsure who pays any attention to Patriots fans.

    If I was to hazard a guess, I would say fishing for sunfish?

    Are you sure about that?

    According to ESPN’s NFL Matchup, Brady’s passer rating when pressured this season is 111.3. Only two other quarterbacks have a rating over 80.0 in such situations: Jameis Winston (94.6) and Kirk Cousins (82.1).

    Apparently you’ve never watched him play, particularly against Pittsburgh. Which, come to think of it, explains a lot of your posts.

  13. Brady’s Minnesota childhood stories would have been the main headline had it not been for Julie Ertz stealing the show. The perky blonde wife of Zach Ertz has been the media star of the SB week so far.

  14. “His weakness?

    Cheating?”

    I think for the benefit of everyone in Minneapolis, it would be best if the Patriots won. You don’t want to see what will happen to your fair City if Philadelphia wins. There won’t be enough Crisco on hand to keep them from tearing the place apart.

  16. NFC East where you can go from worst to first or first to worst in one year.Make the playoffs miss them the next year.Where they turn on the VCR and talk about the good old days.Good division I tell you.

    Of course he’s sure – he’s absolutely sure. He and terripet are so certain that they’re right that no amount of facts can possibly deter them from how right they are.

    I think Philly has used up all the Crisco going into the Superbowl.
