Tom Brady Puzzle Possibly Solved

June 25th, 2021

Target of Tom Brady’s ire?

Tonight on something called “The Shop” seen on HBO, we may find out who Tom Brady referred to when he angrily lashed out at an unknown team’s coaching staff or front office because they weren’t interested in signing him and instead wanted to retain their starter.

If you believe the clip that was sent out by HBO, Brady yelled at the team representative, “You are going to keep that motherf@cker?”

Joe isn’t 100 percent sure this actually happened the way the clip was edited.

Of course, so many folks are trying to guess to whom Brady was referring. Even Michael Lombardi on his podcast “GM Shuffle” discussed this.

Lombardi knows Brady from their days in New England about five years ago, Lombardi was a coffee fetcher for Bill Belicheat. Lombardi from time to time lets listeners know he has some sort of relationship with Brady. So Lombardi tried to connect the dots on this puzzle.

“I think Brady really would have liked to have played in San Francisco,” Lombardi began. “However, I think Brady wanted to stay on the eastern seaboard as much as possible. … So I don’t think he would refer to Jimmy G as “that motherf@cker.” I don’t think that.

“I think [Mitch Trubisky] is more likely. I think there is no doubt he would refer to ‘MVP Mitch’ as that.

“I think the team is Miami. I think it is Miami. … I think it was Miami.”

Lombardi pointed out that free agency was a month before the draft, before Tua floated up on Miami Beach. Miami is on the east coast, and the Dolphins’ quarterback was rotten Ryan Fitzpatrick.

“Now [Brady] would say “You are sticking with that motherf@cker?” about Fitzpatrick,” Lombardi said. “That is a line he would use. … [Brady] wanted to get back at New England. And what better way to get back at New England than to go to Miami?”

Of course, Chicago is not on the eastern seaboard. But it is about the same flight time from Tampa to New York, where Brady’s oldest son lives.

All Joe knows somebody was stupid enough to keep a lousy quarterback over taking a flyer on Brady; Joe sure wishes he knew who the quarterback and team was. Joe would ship a case of Bromosa from Big Storm Brewing to the shot-caller of that club for helping the Bucs win the Super Bowl.

    It was the 49ers. I’m at the watercooler right now & everyone standing here agrees. Go Bolts!

  2. Says:

    Blasphemy! To sully the good name of The Amish Rifle and associate it with such foul language is unconscionable. The man already has his jersey in Canton and is one of the best ever at his position. The most charismatic and player-loved QB of all time. I realize it’s not my site, and you can publish what you want, but since there is a comment section… covering this story of our shining knight Brady badmouthing one of his peers is borderline hogwash, and dragging Fitzy into the mix is just wrong.

  3. westernbuc Says:

    All this Brady to the Saints almost-could’ve-happened nonsense is making me sick. If that rumor is true, I hope he was talking about Brees

  4. Darin Says:

    Was talking about Brees. The ultimate playoff choke artist. Yep that mf’er

  5. Bucsfanman Says:

    Why the attention? I don’t understand the obsession, other than there ain’t $hit else to talk about!
    He came here. He brought us the Lombardi.

  6. ModHairKen Says:

    Rodgers. Brees. Mahomes. Wilson. Combined they have 4 SB wins in 30+ seasons. They are all MFers, overrated and self aggrandizing, except for Mahomes. He’s pretty humble. But even Mahomes would be doing well to win more than 3 SBs.

  7. Listnfrmafar Says:

    How come no one is mentioning the Giants? Isn’t the head coach an ex Patriots coach? The crap is flying already and I love it, John Jones on Total Access this morning already saying Brady will have a fall off this year. Somebody tell TB12 that 1 hit wonder, Roger’s blow boy Jines is sh@ting on him.

  8. BA4President Says:

    I don’t think he’d call Brees a m-f’er

  9. JimmyJack Says:

    Brady came to Tampa Bay in a large part because of all our offensive weapons. That tells me he was likely not considering teams that have putrid offenses. So Im taking Chicago off the table as an option. San Fransisco too……..Somebody above said Giants? I might be able to buy that. Their offense isnt actually all that bad…..but they do seem to be a long ways away overall. Thats kinda a tough sell for Brady who was after a ring.(of course you could say the same about the Bucs preBrady)

  10. Señor Harry in Costa Rica Says:

    @ModHair, I like your post. The only thing I disagree with you on is Mahomes. Yes, he is very talented and fun to watch. But he (and Kelce) likes to throw his little toe injury out there as a lame excuse for losing the SB – dude, you got your ass whipped, the Chiefs led the NFL in offense and you did not score one TD.

    Mahomes would be better served to throw his Oline under the bus for letting the Bucs Man Eaters of Suh, JPP and Shaq get after him. And Kelce with the “we would beat them 99 out of 100 times”, how lame. We should have opened the season with them instead of the Cowgirls.

  11. PSL Bob Says:

    Who the hell cares! Jeesh. I love Brady as our QB, but damn. The guy farts and it’s the primary topic of discussion on all the sports shows and blog sites. Besides, other than the Saints, if he goes anywhere other than Tampa, I seriously doubt he would be Mr. 7 rings now. The Bucs had the roster to win. No one else, other than perhaps the Chiefs and Packers did. He goes to Miami and he would have failed. Don’t think he was looking for that. HBO is just trying to generate some controversy to get everyone to watch the special.

  12. PassingThru Says:

    I don’t see Brady calling Garoppolo an MF. Two reasons: 1. Garoppolo had recently taken SF to the Super Bowl, the phrase “They’re sticking with that MF?!?” wouldn’t apply as it sounds like whomever Brady is referring to is an inept loser. 2. Garoppolo and Brady are friends, even for rivalry sake Brady wouldn’t say or infer that publicly. He’s more guarded than that.

    As I’ve said repeatedly, it was Mitch Trubisky. Trubisky has been a total bust since he was drafted. The Chicago GM who drafted Trubisky bypassed Mahomes, and obviously he was doubling down on Trubisky to try proving he was right. Like most managerial decisions in professional sports, it was ego-driven.

    It’s possible it was Miami, there are plenty of former New England personnel over there, but I doubt it. The Miami roster had bigger holes than the hull of the RMS Titanic, and they were back then (and still are) in the process of a long rebuild. Their QB was Fitzpatrick who is nothing more than a hot-cold, spot-starting backup. So why isn’t it Fitzpatrick? Because Miami wasn’t sticking with him, everyone and their grandmother knew Miami was going to take a QB in the draft. Fitzpatrick wasn’t the MF because Brady knew Miami wasn’t sticking with him.

    Chicago made sense. It was equal distance from Brady’s homes in NYC and Chestnut Hill, and his older son who lives in Los Angeles. He’s close to his parents who live in San Mateo CA. Chicago also had a very good team, minus a pathetic offensive line which could have been overhauled (like KC is currently doing) before the season started.

    There was no MF in Miami. It was Chicago, and the MF is Mitch Trubisky.

  13. Joe Says:

    The guy farts and it’s the primary topic of discussion on all the sports shows and blog sites.

    People like to read/listen/talk/respond about quarterbacks, the most important position on a football team (unless you are an old 1960s high school coach). Brady is the best and a champion. This really isn’t that difficult to figure out.

    Most sports shows and sites are not CSPAN and bankrolled by cable companies. They are a business or part of a business. You won’t pull in many eyeballs — which is what advertisers crave — by discussing Alex Cappa.

    Besides, this is funny as hell, if squeaky-clean Brady did actually call a lousy quarterback “that motherf@cker.”

  14. Duane Says:

    Im sure Brady considered every team because he is thorough. Likely an edited clip. Brady knew Tampa had the pieces he needed to win. Everyone else can try to retcon the story. Tampa did not win the lottery. The greatest sports decision maker of all time reviewed his options, and clearly picked the best one. Chicago wasnt going to compete, SF is in a tough division, and I dont think anyone saw Miami coming on like they did.

  15. D-Rome Says:

    I agree with you, PassingThru (unintentional rhyme). I doubt it was Miami because Tua was their plan so it’s not like Miami was going to stick with Fitzpatrick. Chicago is the only team that makes sense to me.

  16. IrishMist Says:

    Well based on the number of kids Fitz has, it wouldn’t be an inaccurate description.

  17. Eddie Marz Says:

    Best guess Miami for sure. Fits the demographics and sticking with Fitzpatrick was pretty dumb. Also a chance to stay in the division. Nevertheless GO BUCS!

    “Besides, this is funny as hell, if squeaky-clean Brady did actually call a lousy quarterback “that motherf@cker.”

    Have to agree. Very funny. Makes TB a little more human too!

  19. PSL Bob Says:

    OK, I concede. Woke up in a bad mood this AM. Carry on!

  20. Sport Says:

    I’ll go with the LA Rams, they have a strong roster and would have been a solid team.

    They Rams dumped that MF’r one year too late.

    Thank You Whoever it was.

    In BA I Trust!

    Joe you are just pushing a false narrative that some people the media has convinced. I will love to prove you and the media are wrong about . And how it’s all a false narrative . But I know guys like me you will never debate because I will bring facts . I’ve seen average quarterbacks win superbowls in this eara who had good defenses and a running game . Let me ask you this how many bad defenses that Brady played with ? And I know if you ask that question that means you a Brady hater wich I’m not but answer that question for me ?

  22. Joe Says:

    Joe you are just pushing a false narrative that some people the media has convinced. I will love to prove you and the media are wrong about . And how it’s all a false narrative .

    You mean Brady is lying?

  23. Oneilbuc Says:

    Joe if anyone believes that the quarterback position is the most important position in all sports is pushing a false narrative regardless of who the person is.

  24. Slugglife Says:


    I’ll admit I still have a little bit of Friday’s Rum in my eyes, but what in the holy hell did you just post?

    My eyes got crossed just trying to make sense of that bastardization of the English language.

  25. Slugglife Says:

    It appears that even Bucs fans are salty about Brady bringing a second ring to our team. Sad!

  26. Oneilbuc Says:

    Slugglife shut up !! So let me get this straight!! Brady couldn’t help his offense his last year in New England because of injuries to his runningbacks and his wr wasn’t good enough and that’s why he threw a pick 6 to end the game even though he had the number 1 defense. Then he came to Tampa and they put a Allstar team around him and now the only reason why we won the superbowl is because of Brady?? Lol 😆🤣😂 ok lol 😆🤣😂 You right I’m a bucs fan and you a Brady fan . I say the bucs won as a whole you say the bucs won because of Brady lol 😆🤣😂 !!

  27. Ash Says:

    It was the colts not the bears why would he want to go to Chicago he was trying to win Superbowls it was the colts

  28. PassingThru Says:


    Because the Bears have a decent team overall. The only flaws were a porous offensive line and a horrible QB. They even had a slightly better record than Tampa Bay. Tampa Bay also had flaws, though through rose-colored glasses and Super Bowl win, no one cares to recall them.

  29. Slugglife Says:

    Like I said- salty Bucs fan. Nothing else needs to be said.
