Barring any last-minute changes, the New England Patriots are shaping up to have their most compelling training camps in several years. Cam Newton and 2021 first-round pick Mac Jones are set to battle it out for the starting quarterback job.
There’s reason for fans to be optimistic about the team’s QB situation. Not only has Jones seemingly checked every box this offseason, but Newton looks fully healthy and has had a full offseason to get more acclimated to the playbook. That wasn’t the case last year.
With that being said, however, fans in Foxborough will always be thinking about what could’ve been had Tom Brady not departed in free agency last offseason.
All the 43-year-old did was lead the Buccaneers, a former laughingstock for the last decade, to their first playoff appearance since 2007 and first title since 2002.
You’d think Father Time would come calling for Brady at some point, right? Not exactly. In a ridiculously awesome flex, Tampa Bay’s gunslinger posted a video on Twitter that proves his accuracy is still arguably the best of any QB in the league.
Seriously, this clip is so mind-blowing that it might be fake.
Former Patriots QB Tom Brady’s latest accuracy video is insane.
How is that even possible? We know Brady is the widely considered the greatest player to ever grace the NFL, but we couldn’t place a football in that window from two yards away. The fact Brady found it too easy (while throwing bullets) from 10 yards and proceeded to take several steps backwards and still fired a perfect strike just further proves he’s a machine.
Speaking of machines, the Patriots legend is so overpowering and precise with his accuracy that he managed to knock the contraption over and couldn’t even get the ball back. Like his caption humorously articulated, Brady needs some actual receivers, because he’s clearly too good and advanced for modern-day technology.
Hey, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Rob Gronkowski … what’s the holdup? Brady, who apparently played through a fully (!) torn MCL last season, is out here playing catch with himself after helping you guys win a championship. Can we get the guy a little assistance, maybe?
In all seriousness, this has been quite an offseason for Brady. Fun times. But the video IS indeed fake. Sorry guys.
We know TB12 is magical but … this was simply too much.
From getting wasted at the Bucs’ parade and treating the Lombardi Trophy like a spare football — if anyone’s earned that right, it’s Brady — to all of his offensive weapons being retained, trolling Donald Trump during the team’s visit to the White House, and flexing on all of his haters with this video, it’s clear the three-time MVP has blocked Father Time’s number from his contact list.
