One game, two Tom Brady reactions, for Buccaneers at Patriots in Week 4

The greatest quarterback of all-time, and his father, react to the 2021 schedule release

Usually, you get Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady giving a preplanned humble comment about his accomplishments. Imagine being the father of the greatest quarterback of all-time though. Humility is not required.

Granted, Tom Brady Sr. likely doesn’t want to write any checks his son can’t cash, but there’s a bit more freedom when you’re the elder Brady who doesn’t have to prove the statements.

And it’s not like Brady Sr. is reaching Lavar Ball levels of bulletin board material provided to opponents of his child when he told 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston,

“I saw the schedule come out (Wednesday), and I started salivating when I saw that we play the Patriots in the fourth game of the season and that we’re coming up here to make our record 4-0 after the fourth game.”

The New England area isn’t exactly a new battleground for shots heard wide and far, but this one rang out pretty well on its own.

Of course, we’ve seen a bit of a more open and fun-loving Tom Brady Jr. (kind of weird to write that, to be honest) since he joined the Buccaneers.

During his time with the Patriots, the Brady most of us outside of Foxboro came to know what more serious, simple in his responses, and reserved to put it lightly. It’s not that he never had fun given the eyebrow, LFG, and denied high-five gifs we’ve all enjoyed over the years, but he seems to be having more fun in Florida. Hard to blame him, really.

And with the reveal of the 2021 NFL Schedule junior followed senior with his own statement, while retweeting an illustration published by the NFL’s own social media team.

One game. Two reactions. Both coming from Tom Brady’s. The build-up to Week 4 has already begun, and it’s going to be a lot of fun to watch unfold.
