Tom Brady challenges Lamar Jackson to race . . . sort of

Not long after Lamar Jackson set the NFL record for single-season rushing yards for a quarterback Thursday night, Tom Brady challenged the Ravens quarterback to a race. Sort of.

Me vs Lamar, 40 Yard Dash on natural grass but he has to wear rollerblades. Who’s buying the PPV?” Brady tweeted.

Jackson has seven carries for 70 yards so far tonight and, for the season, has topped the 1,039 rushing yards Michael Vick had in 2006.

For his career, Brady has 600 carries for 1,035 yards and 22 touchdowns.

Jackson is closing in on 1,800 career rushing yards, having run for 695 yards on 147 carries last season. He has 12 career rushing touchdowns.

  1. Do you want the guy with the rings or the guy who puts up big numbers? The age old debate when talking about the GOATs.
    But Brady is rare, this man’s got BOTH rings and numbers. 3 MVPs too. GOATness!
    (idc if this season has been bad)

  2. Rollerblades on grass. That’s impossible. Gotta give it to Brady under those terms. Credit to Tom though, to think up a way where he could possibly beat Jackson in a race.

  3. Forget the whole TB12 franchising thing. After his playing days are over he clearly has a future in STAND UP COMEDY.

  4. This all sounds funny, but as much as I hate to say this, BB will find a way to neutralize Jackson in the playoffs and the stripes will give the Patriots the win late in the game on a phantom PI penalty.
    Count it.. I’ve seen this movie too many seasons in a row.

  5. Never thought I’d see an offense like this be tops in the league and not figured out yet but here we are. 🤔

  6. I think TB admires Mahomes, Wilson, Jackson and Watson. For all the rest he has respect.

    He was just having fun in tipping his cap to Lamar. It’s funny how the Week 1 next big thing is no longer that.

    Brady fumbled the ball

    ——
    Tuck rule game? Yes he has admitted it more than once.

    Payback for Roughing the Passer that wasn’t. 🙂

    Just because Lamar would be wearing roller blades, doesnt mean that he will have to roll on grass. He would have to run with them. I think he could still beat Brady in this race

  9. Extreme accomplishment, fame, wealth, a beautiful wife and family, looks … and a sense of humor, too? What does Brady not have? The cosmic tumblers sure fell into place for this guy.

  10. I’m a huge Brady fan….

    But asking for Lamar’s Superbowl Rings in his 2nd season is a bit much. He’s a thrill to watch – and I’m happy for him that he went so low in the 1st round.

    Baltimore is a winning organization with a great coach – as Brady would be the first to say (being coached by Belichick) – that makes all the difference.

    Brady’s my all-time favorite – but I’m really excited to watch Lamar Jackson’s career. Big things for that young man.

    One QB on rollerblades vs. another QB who’s team owner is a cheapskate.
    ———————–

    How is he a cheapskate? His facilities and surrounding Patriots Place is top notch. He has purchased not one but two planes for his football teams. Does tons of philanthropy around world. That is your image of a cheapskate? Now maybe you are confusing this with BB the GM who doe snot over pay players. The funny thing is he does not overpay prima donnas yet somehow still reaches or reaches 95% of the cap space that is required by all teams. Your hatred/jealousy of all things Pats just blinds you to facts.

  12. It’s kind of sad that Brady couldn’t just congratulate Lamar. He had to make some weird, unfunny joke and draw all the attention, albeit negative, to him. When the Ravens beat the Patriots, Lamar went right up to Brady and called him the GOAT. No jokes. Just sincerity from a good, decent sportsman who plays fair and by the rules.

    How about we give each guy 6000 yards of credit for each Super Bowl ring they have. When it is all said and done I bet TB 12 will be in the lead.

    ******
    Lighten up Francis, he’s having a good time.

    ______________

    For years, he lowballed his players, even Brady.

    “Here’s what we’re offering. Don’t like it? There’s the door. Go play for Cincy or the ‘Skins if you just want money.”

    Brady takes less thinking the money the team saved will go to signing good players.
    How many years were the Pats under the cap by millions, but Brady was surrounded by lesser talent?

    Sounds cheap to me.

    When will your crying stop? What did Brady say to Lamar after that game? Did he not congratulate him? Why do you focus on the Pats and Brady so much? You need to have some serious self reflection on the issue.

    Reminds me of a Journey song.

  17. Lamar will not be running if the Ravens face the Pats in the postseason. BB will put a stop to that. I’d go so far to say he threw the regular season game just to not play his hand. Watch and see.

    Lamar can and will beat the Pats with his arm. Sadly, the Pats can’t run or pass and need turnovers with short fields to score.

    You are confusing cheap with fielding a competitive team. If players want to chase the $$ elsewhere that is fine in the NE system because nobody is above the team – even Brady. Hell they have had players go chase their big payday and go to sucky teams just to come back to the Pats. Apparently the BB or Kraft philosophy has worked pretty damn well. Can you please give me a list of all the years millions and millions have been left in cap space? I would like to see it to see if you are correct.

    My god he can’t even joke around without the crybabies coming out to bash hIm.
    ——

    My God, he can’t even joke around without all the Pats fans flexing on everybody as if their fandom had anything to do with the Pats greatness

  21. I’m a Ravens fan and this shows Brady has a sense of humor. Unfortunately he’s at the sunset of his career. Would be interesting to see these two against each other in there prime.

  22. My God, he can’t even joke around without all the Pats fans flexing on everybody as if their fandom had anything to do with the Pats greatness

    So you’re saying Pats “fans” act like every other fans base.

    Good job!

  23. You sorry NE fans that claim the tuck rule was revenge for the roughing the passer call in 1976 : do you really think NE would have beaten the REAL Steel Curtain ??…… go back to sleep

    Yes because Tom Brady won all of those rings by himself. At least 3 of them he needed his defense to bail him out.

    Well you actually need all 3 phases to win but
    please tell us witch 3 did the D “Bail him out”

    How about those two SBs the D gave up the go ahead TDs to lose in the final minutes when Brady handed them the lead. All the D needed to do is stop the opponent and they did not. I can play it both ways like you just tried. Name a QB with 6 rings other than Brady. If it’s so easy why aren’t there more. Another article to get your jimmies in a bunch. Poor Roger.

  26. Jackson is College Football in the NFL = Boring to watch a RB that plays QB.

    Best Years of the NFL are soon to end when Brady retires.
