Tom Brady trolls Philly after Eagles beatdown as final revenge for Super Bowl
By Jerry Trotta
The New England Patriots are out of the playoffs after their 47-17 drubbing at the hands of the Buffalo Bills. The season is over, but it will likely go down as one of the best coaching jobs of Bill Belichick’s career.
Unfortunately for Julian Edelman, though, the loss confirmed that his Super Bowl bet won’t come to fruition. If you missed it, the retired wideout wagered a lot of money on the Pats and Buccaneers to meet in the final game of the season.
Like a lot of football fans, Edelman clearly wanted to see Belichick and Tom Brady go head-to-head as enemies with a championship on the line. Given the pool of talent in the AFC, that was always a pipe dream.
However, Patriots fans can still watch Brady pursue his eighth ring. On Sunday, Brady and the Buccaneers rolled over the Eagles, who were lucky to even be in the playoffs with the expanded field.
Always one to hold a grudge, Brady wasn’t above trolling the Eagles in his postgame video as revenge for Super Bowl LII. Listen closely to the background music.
Former Patriots QB Tom Brady trolled the city of Philadelphia as revenge for Super Bowl LII.
Brady never forgets.
If you’re unfamiliar with the song, it’s “Dreams and Nightmares” by Meek Mill, a Philadelphia native and huge Eagles fan. It became the Eagles’ anthem during their improbable playoff run with Nick Foles presiding over the offense and an eventual 41-33 victory over Brady and the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
The lyrics are probably engrained into the memories of Patriots fans. Mill even performed it at the Eagles’ ring ceremony and it was BLASTED in Philly’s locker room after they rolled over the Vikings in the NFC Championship Game.
Brady obviously remembers all of this, and it was a great touch by his social media team to have the song get louder as he got deeper into the video. By the time his speech was over, the song’s chorus was ready to go.
Brady and the Bucs were in cruise control on Sunday. With Jalen Hurts limited by a left leg injury and struggling with his reads, Tampa Bay scored the first 31 points en route to a blowout win to advance to the Divisional Round.
For the game, Brady went 29 of 37 for 271 yards and two touchdowns and zero interceptions. He was sacked four times, but still finished with a passer rating of 115.2 and completed passes to nine different players.
Up next for the seven-time champion is a home matchup against Matthew Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday afternoon. Maybe a good dig at OBJ in the victory video if the Bucs win?
