Tom Brady Throws Shade At Newly Retired Ben Roethlisberger

January 28th, 2022

“I see you Ben!”

You can call Tom Brady the greatest quarterback and you wouldn’t be wrong. But if he hangs it up in the coming days, maybe his next goal is to be the greatest marketer.

Yesterday upon learning the news that long-time Steelers quarterback, Georgia lakehouse neighbor and golfing buddy of Bucs Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians, Ben Roethlisberger, is turning the page on a Hall of Fame career and becoming a full-time daddy, Brady took the moment to offer his former AFC rival congratulations.

And he also took the moment to pitch his TB12 product line and tweak Roethlisberger’s nose at the same time.

So is Brady suggesting Roethlisberger would still be playing if he went the TB12 route? Or is Brady hinting that he will last longer than Roethlisberger because of the TB12 products?

Like everything else with Brady, we likely won’t know for a while.

Every Bucs fan sits… and nervously waits.

    I don’t know about ‘nervously waits’….
    There is still that off chance Brady plays next season BUT father time hits him at the beginning of the season and fans are left wondering why they thought he could stay consistent..

    Joe actually finds that to be a compliment, thanks. You know how much Harvey Levine rakes in for a year?

    The way things are going, TMZ is more credible than CNN. #Sad

    Tbh I didn’t get either of those takes Joe. Seemed like it was mutual respect,. It throwing shade. Like hey my method works and your method works, look now succesful you were. Different than mine, but more than one way. If it works it works

    People can say whatever, but it sure comes across as a back handed compliment. Whatever Tom….
    If so, do not see the point.
    I am a big fan of the GOAT, but this is like whatever, ok Tom

    GO BUCS!!!!

    Not the sound of a guy in a bad mood who feels like quitting. Yet.

  7. Swampbuc Says:

    Whatever. Tom has a lot of leeway given his accomplishments and his world. And he’s got to do something to keep him in a good mood with horse face waiting for him to get home so she can order him around.

    why so hateful? Isn’t it ridiculous that you write something like that and then you’re here first thing in the morning? –Joe

    Man, It sucks now that football is over for us fans. ( Joe included )
    Now we are just going at each other’s throats.
    Time to focus on College BBall now.

    Insurrection Joe strikes again. Knock on truthful news. This site proves to be pro joe rogan and faux news. One word. DUMB. First, that’s ridiculous. Second, if you believe that, then why are you here commenting at 4:44 a.m.? –Joe

    The patriots wire headline is Tom brady celebrates Ben Roth’s career in Tweet. Funny how things are taken.

  12. SKBucsFan Says:

    Ben’s a physical mess. That is a hilarious way to say congrats on your retirement and good luck getting out of bed when you’re 50! I hope they have a good relationship and Ben can laugh at it. I don’t want to see Mike Tomlin go all Sean Payton with revenge when we play them next year.

    Its just TB12 ribbing, all in good fun, and likely an indication that Brady intends to keep going. He did his homework and picked Tampa, and I dont think he could have predicted Brees retiring and Payton quitting. If he is healthy, and still under contract, hes going to play. He still had the juice to overcome many bad situations that we normally expect to not succeed. He still raises the needle, as well as the level of play from those around him. He can still play. I dont think Brady is the type that leaves any potential on the table. When he is done, he will tell us his heart wasnt in it, his shoulder is shot, his knee is beyond repair. I dont hear him saying any of that.

    I asked this question yesterday. I really don’t understand why every athlete isn’t doing what Brady does. It can mean another huge contract.

  17. Captain Dan Lawrence Says:

    I don’t see this as a backhanded compliment at all, just a simple congrats from the goat, with a shout-out to hiss system. This is a hint that he will play at 45.

  18. Anonymous Says:

    @ Captain Dan. My take as well. TB 12 was giving him props for doing it his way. Otho good more or less.

    I don’t know about everyone else but I always love watching Tom Brady and I have the highest respect for him. It will be a shame for him to go but people have to move on ,plus spent as much family time as you can because you never know . I just lost my brother in law to covid age 35 ,my sister has cystic fibrosis he was her rock. I thought of him as a true brother because I lost my real in at age 20 with cyctic fibrosis. Hug ur loved ones close
