I’ll have to say, ever since Tom Brady headed to Tampa Bay, his social media trolling has been top-notch. But this week’s troll hit close to home as the reigning Super Bowl champ just couldn’t let go of the past.
Brady took to Twitter where he post a video recapping Week 1’s matchup but if you look closely over his left shoulder, you will see that the clock on his computer reads 3:28. Is this a knock at the Atlanta Falcons‘ infamous Super Bowl loss to Brady and the Patriots? Absolutely.
This troll comes just a few days before Brady and the Bucs line up to face the Falcons on Sunday.

The Falcons Take on the Bucs Week 2
In case you somehow forgot, Brady magically led the New England Patriots back to tie the game with under a minute to play during Super Bowl LI. The Falcons blew their 28-3 lead and Pats’ running back James White scored the winning touchdown to give New England a 34-28 victory.
Now, the Falcons will look for much-needed revenge. But it won’t be easy. Entering the Week 2 matchup, Brady single handily owns an 8-0 career record versus the Falcons. If the Bucs can come up with a win, Brady will become the sixth quarterback in league history to hold a record of 9-0 or better against an opponent.
The Buccaneers barely walked away with a win last week, but Brady ended the night throwing for 379 yards and four touchdowns. Meanwhile, Matt Ryan threw for just 164 yards and zero touchdowns in the Falcons’ 32-6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Hopefully, Atlanta can pull it together to at least keep up with an elite offense and defense, but it’s going to be tough to do in the next five days.
Fans Chime in With Their Own Roasts
As always, NFL fans chimed in and either took Brady’s side or roasted him back.
Below are just a few examples of the replies to the viral video.
It looks like the Falcons have some Packers fans on their side:
Bruh you guys got bailed out by the refs yet again just like last year in the playoffs

But, it backfired since Aaron Rodgers and the Packers got blown out in Week 1.
Rodgers doesn’t even own a TD this season

Some fans truly believe Brady couldn’t have won seven rings without the help of outside factors:
And claim his rings are not “real” because of that.

Others believe his rings are real––it just depends on who you ask:
He has 7 real rings including own against machoke..

At 44-years-old, Brady may or may not be too washed up to win another Super Bowl:
You’re not making past the 2nd round old man
