Tom Brady tells Father Time to “just take the L”

No NFL player ever has beaten Father Time, but Tom Brady is doing a pretty good job of it.

Brady, 41, stated repeatedly during the 2018 season that his goal is to play to the age of 45. The future first-ballot Hall of Famer has played well enough that no one is questioning whether he has another year or two or three or four or five left in him.

Not known as a big trash talker, the Patriots quarterback had a message for Father Time on Friday.

Brady posted a video of his Super Bowl celebration on Instagram, writing, “Hey Father Time, Just take the L.”

He won an NFL-record sixth Super Bowl ring last week. Last season, Brady earned his third league MVP award, and in 2016, he won his fourth Super Bowl MVP award.

So what’s Brady’s next encore?

  1. Lance Armstrong vehemently denied cheating until the tests caught up. Meanwhile, others stay one step ahead of it all.

  2. Don’t like him calling FATHER TIME out but I guess I can understand it after all the MEDIA HEADS kept throwing it in his face all pre season & thruout the year……
    His Encore?…….. I guess time will soon tell…… hopefully a couple more rings on the way to his 45th birthday!!!!!

    I’m sure they do.

    Brady wouldn’t know either way. Y’all know why. 🙂

  4. If there was anything to deflategate those PSI measurements would have been public by now. You know it. I know it. The NFL knows it. Everyone else with a brain knows it too.

    The facts matter cupcakes. Everything else is trash. 🙂

    Steelers are very well experienced in flags and Super Bowls. 🙂

    Funny you should mention that….Ped-ton did that too as shipments were mailed to his house in Ashly’s name…..hmmmmmm

  7. SO MANY BITTER TEARS……Tom said to love the Haters…..
    Please settle for me loving your tears….. does that count??!!

  8. steelcurtainn – Hey, WAKE UP – the Chiefs were gifted at least 5 No-Calls by the Refs to help them stop Brady – but the Patriots prevailed, and that is why this is the GREATEST Dynasty the NFL has ever experienced, now and forever.

  9. Steelers are very well experienced in flags and Super Bowls. 🙂

    But that didn’t determine the game now did it. Sorry, I’d take Steelers 4 in 6 years. That’s the greatest dynasty in the shortest time period.

  12. His Instagram post with him and Gronk smirking after the AFCCG while Puff Daddy song plays in the background was LEGENDARY. Still laughing at that one.

  13. Old Tom has 6, the most all time

    Without these 3 it could be nine

    With a Tyree catch here, a Manningham dime there,
    Here a Philly, there a Philly, everywhere a Philly Special

    Old Tom’s got 6, it could be 9

  14. In the future, a best-selling movie will FOREVER PRESERVE the excellence of this Great football Team and FOREVER PRESERVE the disgraceful actions of the NFL office.

    New England Patriots and Tom Brady:

    PRIOR to DEFLATEGATE: 5 AFC Championships WINS and 3 Super Bowl WINS.

    AFTER DEFLATEGATE: 4 AFC Championships WINS, and 3 Super Bowl WINS.

    This place is amazing.

    You have some haters who call him “Two Yard Tom” and tell us he has a “noodle arm”, while others claim his amazing physical prowess can only be explained by PEDs.

    Do y’all realize how ridiculous this sounds?

    Could every hater out there send me a vial of your tears?
    I’d like to fill my pool with them.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    You could fill your pool if you wanted to, but those tears are just too salty man

  19. Brady’s last 2 games are a microcosm of his career. Against the Chiefs he avoids certain defeat with a stupid mistake by his opponent…and against the Rams, Belichick’s defense wins the game.

  20. Brady was just having fun. He wasn’t claiming to have defeated Father Time, he’s just jokingly asking Time not to duke it out with him. Yet it still generates mountains of salt. Enjoy the offseason defeating Brady on your Madden machines kids.

    Yes they did admit to it, but is it really their fault that the NFL didn’t text for it until 1987, and on top didn’t actually suspend players for it until 1989. Just a lil loop hole in the rule book, you know what that’s all about hey Patriot Fans 🙂

  22. I have the utmost respect for the man, but I noticed him bail out on several throws in SB rather than take a hit and deliver the ball, Regular season is one thing, SB, step into the throw and take the shot.

    So zero credit for the 4th quarter and OT drives vs KC when Brady was lights out? And no credit for 6 4th quarter drives in SBs (including vs the Rams) to give his team the lead when the next highest QB has 2? Got it. Just dumb luck and being in the right place at the right time = 9 SB appearances and 6 titles.

    Cool man, Tom has six. And it doesn’t effect my every day to day life. Perhaps your self esteem shouldn’t heavily rely on another mans accomplishments.

    Those Steelers titles in the 1970s were more than 40 years ago and really ancient history. Most people don’t even remember them, fewer people care.

  27. Lyle Alzado played the entire 70’s decade, and never played for the Steelers, and we all know he admitted to using Sterioids, so perhapd a lot of players in the 70s besides the Steelers used Steroids, sounds like a level playing field and we still dominated the decade 🙂

    Steelers fans should probably be more concerned about whether or not they field a competitive team this year.

    Fun Fact, Between the years when Terry Bradshaw retired and the drafted Ben Roethlisberger, the franchises record was 175 wins and 143 losses. Thats without a franchise QB, over 20 years, I think we’ll field a competitive team 🙂

    Owned lol not this year, hows 17-10 sound to you. The Steelers got 6 sbs too and remember they was the 1st to get there without the tuck rule spygate and deflategate. Carry on!

  31. Steelers had some good years. But they should be ashamed for what they did this year. Talk about implosion. They don’t deserve your loyalty. You need a new coach and some new players. First Bell, then Brown. You finally get past the Patriots and then have no emotional energy left to finish the season.

    It sounds like by winning a meaningless regular season home game, the Steelers have now played vs Brady 14 times and are 3-11.

  33. Only Patriots fans think that sleeping in the cold and avocado ice cream is the secret behind Brady’s longevity. Funny how they are always first to point out every other teams brushes with steroids, HGH, and whatever else they deem necessary to make their years of cheating lesser in their own eyes. Hate to break it to you Patriots fans – but outside the NE US of A no one believes Brady or that franchise are honest about anything. Legacy will always be tainted for that franchise.

    Why fight, both teams had a great year! Pittsburgh won their SuperBowl and the Patriots won theirs.

  35. According to the rules then, the immaculate reception should not have been a catch and the steelers should have lost. The tuck rule was actually a rule(that’s why the call was reversed).

  36. “No NFL player ever has beaten Father Time, but Tom Brady is doing a pretty good job of it.”

    Father Time waits for no one! Not even Tom Perfect. Just give it a year or two. Remember all those ducks that Peyton was throwing towards the end of his run??

  37. How stupid. I hope Brady does realize that Father time always wins. It’s just the law of biology. Arguing against that fact is just stupidity. Brady will start to suck at some point unless he retires before that point comes.

  38. Dear god! Enough with the hate already! 6 SB wins annnnnd 9 SB as a STARTING QB? Not as a kicker or long snapper or defensive end. As a STARTING QB. That’s 9 Super Bowls everyone. Simply amazing. Love him. Hate him. Doesn’t matter. I’ll even give you ‘the tuck rule’ game. Annnnnd Brady still has 5 wins. Let alone 9 Super Bowls AS A STARTING QB! Let’s assume that the footballs were deflated. Still gotta make the throws. No? System QB argument is idiotic. Montana ran the ‘west coast’ system. Manning ran ‘his system’. Marino. Elway. Kelley. Brees. Young. Moon. Farve. Ect. Ect. ‘Ran’ their systems. And yet? None of them went to NINE Super Bowls. Never heard a peeep about all of the greats being system QBs. And yet? The argument is that Brady is ‘a system QB’s Oh wait. Coaching. It’s coaching right? What about Walsh? Leavy? Tuna? Holmgren? Gibbs? Landry? Shula? Who am I missing? Belichick? Etc. Etc. All tied ‘at the hip’ with HOF QBs. Can’t have one without the other. It’s symbiotic. Brady has won 6 SBs. That’s the end of the argument. Period.

  39. Apparently some of the genius Steeler fans who brilliantly predicted losses in each of the Patriot playoff games have awoken from their tearfull slumbers to reenergize and get up off the canvas to continue their fight against a far superior foe…the New England Patriots. Sorry to you all but Patriot Nation is happy and our legacy is cemented. All the crying in the world will not change that!

    Don’t forget the last time they beat the World Champions before the season was the same year they got destroyed by Tebow in the playoffs. I guess missing the playoffs altogether is better than that. 🙂

    ——-
    The only people making this argument are either dopes who know nothing about football or just trying to get a reaction from Patriots fans.

    The only thing that matters is the Patriots are World Champs, and no team has more Super Bowls than this one. We got scoreboard they got jack. And it feels soooo good!

    All hail the GOAT! All hail the KING!
