Chris Jones got under Tom Brady’s skin by calling him old

When the Chiefs played the Patriots during the regular season, Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady were seen getting in each other’s faces. Jones said this week that he was proud to get under Brady’s skin, and did so in part by calling him old.

Jones said on Pardon My Take that getting under a quarterback’s skin is part of the way he plays the game, and with Brady, that means referencing his age.

“If he on the ground, you call him an old-ass motherf–ker. Or, ‘Get your old ass up.’ [Or], ‘You need to f–king retire,’” Jones said, via CBS Boston. “Brady got up so f–king fast, that’s the quickest I’ve ever seen Brady move.”

Jones felt that Brady’s reaction showed that Jones’ words worked.

“Brady is a good guy. He cussed me out, but I loved it. But that’s the first time I’ve ever seen Brady cuss a D-lineman out. So obviously I was doing something right,” Jones said.

Brady, who turns 43 in August, will only hear more talk about how old he is next season. And he won’t like it one bit.

  1. Jones is delusional – even Brady’s teammates call him too f-ing old to motivate him. And if Brady got up quick then it sounds like if anything all Jones did was add motivation. But get under Brady’s skin? LOL – old Brady has heard it a million times! If he looked pissed it was about his shaky o-line, carousel offense and losing the game rather than Jones’ childishness.

  2. Brady does play like an old man, and when he gets to a team that the refs do not allow offensive line holding he is going to feel like an old man too.
    Wait until he gets blown up in the pocket a few times, that’s only if he ends up not going back to NE

  3. …Brady, who turns 43 in August, will only hear more talk about how old he is next season. And he won’t like it one bit….

    Wrong, Brady loves that stuff, it fires him up even more than his natural through the roof competitive instincts.

  4. LOL at Pats fan telling Jones to show some respect. If this was one of your defensive players and any QB in the league other than Brady, you’d be calling it competitive fire and all in good fun. Get over yourselves.

  5. I remember this rookie safety on the Steelers did some awing before a Patriots game. It was not pretty I think he played in Canada for a couple years after that.

  6. I always get a kick out of players that have to continue to talk about there game instead of letting their play do the talking.

  7. It sucks when father time arrives at your doorstep. Nothing to be ashamed of though. The QB position is 95% mental, so Tommy could still win a super bowl. Peyton Manning did it when father time was hanging all over his back. If I were Jones, I’d be asking for Brady’s autograph.

  8. Not good to waken a sleeping dragon.

    ////

    Tom really took it to the rest of the league this year after those disparaging remarks.

    If Brady needs that to motivate him at this point then he might just be done.

  9. Brady is known to be one of the biggest trash talking QBs in the league. That’s how “U mad bro” was born. I’m sure he’s good with it.

    Brady owns the Chiefs, especially in playoff time

    So does BB. He shuts them out for entire halves. Only Goodell and Boger own NE. LOL

  11. Young man spouting off…..to an elder… isn’t that the way of todays youth?

    but in the end…Didn’t they lose to Tom that day?

    So all that old man talking was not backed by the walking …. yet he still spouts off even after losing…go figure.

  12. well hopefully brady bounces…it will begin to show us what we have all wondered…is it Bill or Brady thats so good? both? neither?

  13. I’m sure Brady was more rattled by the 3 terrible calls/none-calls that cost us that game rather then anything Chris Jones might have said.

    Pre-Mahomes, this is true. But now that Mahomes has arrived they have only played once. And it took an offsides penalty and a coin flip. Hardly “owned”.

    Too bad the Pats weren’t good enough to make it to the rematch this year. It would have been fun watching the SB Champs give the Pats a beatdown in NE.

    BUT…you have to be good enough to beat the Titans and you weren’t.

  15. “Pre-Mahomes, this is true. But now that Mahomes has arrived they have only played once. And it took an offsides penalty and a coin flip. Hardly “owned”.’

    Oh awesome, we get to put caveats on things? Well great, the Chiefs are only superbowl champions because the Refs swallowed their whistles on a bout 5 offensive pass interferences. I have never seen a team get away with so much down field blocking before the ball was thrown.

    This game is fun!

  16. This isn’t that big of deal, but kind of funny. Guys are constantly jawing back and forth at each other on the field. Very rarely do we get to hear what’s being said.

  17. Brady was never leaving New England. They cooked up this “Brady leaving” stunt to try and remain relevant now that Mahomes and the Chiefs are getting all the praise and adulation that they used to get.

  18. In 10 years Brady will be immortalized on NFL films for generations.
    Chris Jones will be quickly forgotten as a nobody.

  19. Brady will not be in NE next year.

    RING…

    Tom: Hello

    Jerry Jones: Hi Tom. This is Jerry. We have a QB here who thinks he’s as good as Russell Wilson. Yes, I know, that is pretty funny. Look, I got a great O line, a great RB, and better receivers than you’ve had in five years. Why don’t you come to Dallas and we’ll get you another ring.

    Tom: Let me think about it. I’ll get back to you.

  20. Brady’s already faltering and spraying it around the field in the second half of the season. You can also tell that he really doesn’t like to get hit anymore because he loses his downfield focus. Sorry Pat fans it won’t get better this coming season.

    Well considering the Chiefs beat the Patriots this year and then proceeded to run the table for a chip while Brady and the Pats got curbstomped by Derrick Henry in their own house in Round 1 I’d say it looks like the dragon stayed asleep.

  22. Chris Jones should call Brady an old GOAT next time they play and see what reaction he gets from Brady.

  23. The old GOAT is going to have the last laugh because he is going to make more money than Jones in 2020, even if Jones gets franchise tagged.

  24. Growing tired of the chiefs. You won. Congrats. Enjoy it cuz you are about to enter the realm of cap strapped world of paying Mahomes an money.

  25. Man Patriots fans are salty. You had your time. Now it is the Chiefs time. Tom is old! You go ahead and live in the past and get used to not being in the SB. This couldn’t go on forever. It went on longer than it should anyhow.

  26. Chief fans are telling Pats fans we are living in the past??? They won the Super Bowl last year! You’d think we were Steeler fans who have not won since 2008 (the year TB12 was out)!
    Every year when someone other than the Pats win the Super Bowl we get to listen to the fans claiming they are the next Dynasty. Remember Eagles, Seahawks & Denver fans ?
    KC should be more concerned about the Ravens!

    Chris Jones 40 run at the combine is more entertaining than anything Brady has ever done or ever will do.

    That is the best thing to ever happen at the combine!!!!!!!

  28. Brady is the GOAT. As a Chiefs fan, I have no problem saying this. But entitled Pats fans act like they should win every SB and if they don’t, it is because the NFL is fixed or the refs wanted the other team to win. Two decades of greatness. It was an incredible run. I am not saying the Chiefs are going to be a dynasty either. They will be in the mix for the foreseeable future. The Ravens…. when they beat us with Jackson at QB, then I will worry.

    Umm, Boger’s crew stole 2 tds away in a 5 min period of time. Congrats on the sb win, but you are delusional not admitting simple facts especially the fact Goodell was specifically hired by the Jets owner, as a concerted effort to slow the Pats down, knowing BB and Brady were going to be around for a long time. Again, another fact.

    Your team just won the sb, is very good, but ne honestly has the best recipe to bring you down. The pitch shutouts for entire halves and then outscore you in the end.

    Baltimore is overrated also. There’s always some soup du jour team in the afc, simply because the media is tired of talking about NE.

    Rinse and repeat. NE will reload, be healthy in 2020 (even year/they are healthy) and probably slap you around in Arrowhead next year as the hunted.

    Enjoy (for now).

    Brady won a Super Bowl at 41. Jones will be washed up by 30

    His IQ was washed up the moment he was born. Man, some teams know how to pick some really dumb players.

  32. If only other teams had figured this out 20 yrs ago. They didn’t need to waste time coming up with defensive schemes and creative ways to pressure him in the pocket. All they needed to do was call Brady names and he would have been out of the league before he even got to a Super Bowl.

  33. throughout his career Brady has had more than a few guys seriously wail on him. Thats just what comes with being an elite NFL QB for two full decades. Jones is way down the list.

  34. Brady was more upset with refs that game. Zebras cost em 14 points that day. One of the worst officiated games I’ve ever seen.

  35. Wow – Pats fans take this whole thing so seriously. Why so serious?

    This is a fun story, about a couple of guys who respect each other having some spirited trash talk on the field. But Pats fans get all defensive about it & rush to Brady’s defense…as though he needs it. I’m sure he’s just having fun w/ it. He’s a well known trash talker, and pretty good at it by most accounts.

    I do not envy New England fans, at all. They forgot that this is a game, and is supposed to be fun.
