“Have you ever been in some of those defensive meeting rooms? You wonder why they play defense and after about two minutes you go, ‘yep they could never be an offensive player,” Brady quipped. “Defense is kinda like a dog chasing a car. Just get the guy with the ball.”
The dig drew a ton of reaction on Twitter, including from one of Brady’s most staunch defenders and former teammate Tedy Bruschi who jokingly said the comment ended their friendship.
