Tom Brady answers correctly on dumb question about playing in South Philadelphia and Eagles fans
Tom Brady spoke with the media today ahead of Thursday Night Football between the Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brady has a history of bringing up Philadelphia after Nick Foles and the Birds beat him in the Super Bowl.
Tom Terrific started off his media availability by calling the Eagles defense “talented” and “dangerous”. From there, he commented on the environment in Philadelphia, which is always amplified when it’s a night game.
For those at work here is the question:
“How much do you enjoy going into that atmosphere in Philly? It’s a different kind of fanbase.”
“They do a good job, they love their team. I’ve played there quite a few times over the years, and it’s a great football stadium. It’ll be a fun game Thursday night.”
Honestly what a terrible question in the first place. The reporter tried to set up Tom Brady to say something dumb about Philadelphia and their fans but Brady, being the man that he is, refused to take the bait.
“Different kind of fanbase” ???????
How are Eagles fans a different kind of fanbase? Because they love their football team and want them to win games? I’m sorry but that question is lousy.
Regardless, we got a little respect from the GOAT. Typically, Brady is ignoring handshakes from Nick Foles, making fun of himself for not being able to catch, and being frustrated over the Patriots Super Bowl loss to the birds.
At this point in his career, Brady isn’t going to start any beef. Glad he’s coming around on Philadelphia. I also highly doubt that Eagles fans will give a shit after a healthy day of tailgating before a night game in South Philadelphia.
