What happens when Tom Brady meets one of his newest teammates assigned to protect him, a monster of a young man born in 1999?

Today Joe asked Tristan Wirfs to describe his inaugural Brady encounter and how he felt about.

The manbeast out of Iowa got detailed.

“The first time I met [Brady], we were just kind of coming around a corner and met each other and he said, ‘What’s up, big dog?” Wirfs said. “I thought it was kind of crazy, you know, because it’s Tom Brady. He asked me how old I was and I told him 21, and he kind of started laughing. And he said something about, ‘You think you have experience. I’ve got double the experience.’ I was like, ‘Yeah.’ That’s really about it. I waved to him when he was leaving the other day. He seems really nice. I’m excited to get to be his teammate.”

Later, Wirfs went on to carefully say, without coming off as disrespectful, that Brady is just a guy and while there’s an awe factor, it’s not a big deal.

    Sounds like the ‘awe factor’ wont be hindering Wirfs from doing his job

    Interesting. No, odd, really. Given Brady has well more than twice the experience, and seems a bit wierd to say anyway. But, as we know, Brady’s an introvert, keeps within his shell, is not really well known. 🙂

  3. JimmyJack Says:

    Not detailed enough for me. He didnt even mention if Tom was having a good or bad hair day!!

    ……..

    Pretty sure he wasn’t talking about ‘football experience’
    I think he was referring to Wirfs being 21 and him being 42

    Wirfs should have responded…..”You’re right, Tom…..you wanna arm wrestle?”

    That’s how I read it. Brady is exactly twice his age.

    The reaction to TB v. JW.

  8. Roy T. Buford Says:

    @sb…good point…you are probably right.

  9. ClodHopper Says:

    A match made in heaven. Opposites attract. Best friends in the making!!

  10. BigHog Says:

    ModHairKen : JW.. Big Nasty, what’s good, I’m appointing you to make sure our O/Lineman stay true to toughness and desire!! Tristen…I can do that Mr. 5,000, let’s see can we eat some of these W’s…Mr. 5,000 …You my man! See ya next week!!

  11. BigHog Says:

    Tristan should be played all along that O/Line!! Big Nasty could cause match up problems for a DEFENCE !!!

  12. bojim Says:

    Why would he say that?

  13. BigHog Says:

    Of the first 20 playes ran on offense, let’s just say Big Nasty is at both guard spots and both tackle spots, looking for where he can be a dominating factor…now what in the world is going through the DEFENCES mind!!

  14. Mike Johnson Says:

    I would have smarted off back at Brady..Yeah, you got double the experience but I am a..Power-Houser.

  15. BigHog Says:

    bojim: because he’s not of the YOU PEOPLE MOB!!!

    “Belichick signed quarterback Vinny Testaverde before the 1993 season”

    Finally the Bucs got him back for that.

    While Vinny gets a lot of hate, there is no way he wasn’t better than Dilfer — and had we had Vinny the Bucs get to the SB in the 1999 season. Then Dungy is never fired and Gruden is never hired and never has the chance to destroy the franchise.

    Tom Brady
    Starting with a new Team, all have to play a bit to know each other, Tom is a master at his job. Few to no one, ever had the ability to read the other team
    That Tom Brady has, He will know more about the ability of his new team mates, than they know about themselves in a matter of days. He will use that ability to place them as well as he can. Will be a interesting year watching him.

  18. Eddie Says:

    Can’t wait for season to start. It should be fun.

  19. Tommy Says:

    TB 12 is one of the most selfless people. He was definitely referring to his age being dbl his ! Fall back and watch the master do his work go BRADY!! GO BUCS

    @Rod Munch,

    Lay off the crack. Vinny would have found a way to implode.
