Tom Brady isn't done trolling about the Tuck Rule

Remember the Tuck Rule? Las Vegas Raiders fans, we understand you do, as it’s not precisely your preferred thing to ever occur to your franchise, however simply as a refresher: During the 2001 AFC divisional video game, Tom Brady — who at that point was still Drew Bledsoe’s replacement and not the most likely biggest quarterback of perpetuity — hung back to pass. Charles Woodson tackled him, Brady fumbled, the Raiders recuperated, and the New England Patriots’ Cinderella season ended.

Except Brady had not fumbled. An unknown guideline decreed that despite the fact that Brady seemed tucking the ball into his chest, it was still technically a passing movement, and for that reason the play was ruled an insufficient pass. The Patriots wound up returning to connect it in the 4th quarter and win in a snowy overtime by an Adam Vinatieri basket. The Patriots would go on to win 6 Super Bowls with Brady under center, while the Raiders … did not.

So, it’s most likely very little convenience to Raiders faithful that, in a piggyback off Justin Bieber asking individuals to “tell him something honest” on TikTok, Brady whispered an admission about the video game that possibly, simply possibly, it may have been a fumble.

Of course, Brady is certainly trolling here. But that most likely makes it a lot even worse.
