Tom Brady Disrespecting Tristan Wirfs

April 12th, 2022

Bucs RT Tristan Wirfs.

This is no way to treat the guy that saves your neck each week!

So Bucs quarterback Tom Brady, never to be confused with Michael Vick or Lamar Jackson, is a borderline statue in the pocket. He needs his big uglies up front to not need the aid of crutches.

In front of Brady is an All-Pro right tackle, Tristan Wirfs. One would think Brady would be so appreciative of Wirfs for helping keep the 44-year old signalcaller upright and not needing a cane that Brady might text him once in a while to see how the pride of Mount Vernon, Iowa is getting along.


Wirfs isn’t yet high enough up the international superstar, jet-setter and Hollywood producer’s totem pole for Brady to lower himself to give Wirfs, a valuable teammate, his cell number.

Joe and the rest of the local pen and mic club learned this when Wirfs today at One Buc Palace was asked how often he keeps in touch with the future Hall of Famer in the offseason. Wirfs smiled nervously, sheepishly and confessed he doesn’t.

“I don’t have Tom’s number,” Wirfs shrugged. “I don’t think I’m there yet.”

Wirfs guessed he’s not a big enough celebrity to be gifted with The GOAT’s number.

C’mon Tom, that’s no way to treat your best security blanket. Joe hears and reads all sorts of teammates who say they get texts from Brady, like Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Even Ryan Jensen has FaceTimed with Brady. But Wirfs isn’t important enough?

That’s no way to be, Tom!

As for where Wirfs was when he heard the news that Brady unretired — no, he didn’t get tipped off by Brady like some teammates did — Wirfs said he was in a restaurant with his mom when she saw the bulletin on a TV behind Wirfs and started pointing and telling him to look.

    Hazing is way different than I remember it.

    Saw that. Funny. The Bucs have a lot of really great guys on our team.

    I know you wrote this in a more passive, playful and light-hearted way, but I can tell there is a slight bit to that all that rubs you wrong….just a little. Just by how many times and ways you referenced “Tom, that ain’t no way (to treat)….” You’re being ridiculous. –Joe

    I initially thought the same thing too though when he said it at his PC today. I was kinda surprised, not shocked, but just a little surprised

    We already know it ain’t affecting his play on the field or position on this Team in any way though, so blasé-blasé!

  4. HC Grover Says:

    Weary of so much drama. There is a good explanation I am sure. Maybe he did not ask for it or need it?

    This is the kind of BS we hitched our wagon to. Im grateful, appreciative Tampa got another trophy and probably MOST importantly – being relevant, god its nice to be relevant. But jesus effing christ, some of this other stuff is getting old. I cant stand lebron james, but if this were lebron james pulling this same retirement stunt with rumors of forcing his way to miami – he would be ethered in to the mist. Raked over the coals. I could personally do without some of this crap and this is simply a yr by yr rental. It sure would be nice if we got our own Justin Herbert type of QB – seems like half the league is armed with young franchise Quarterbacks now

    Brady is too much of a celebrity.

  7. GenocideD Says:

    Wow. This is surprising 😮

    Come on, Tom!

    Tristan Wirfs is a yuge celebrity in Iowa and they are all Bucs fans thanks to him.

  10. Buccos Says:

    I’ve even got Tom’s celly. C’mon man!

  11. Hodad Says:

    Since he’s young enough to be your son, treat him like one.

  12. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Tristin, here’s how to get Tom’s number…..

    In the huddle, “Hey Tom, how ’bout your cell?”

    Very next play….allow a sack.

    Back in the huddle :”Hey Tom, about that cell?”

  13. Thadeus Says:

    Bet he get’s a big steak dinner soon with The GOAT

  14. Biff Barker Says:

    Brady cant help being a celeb. Evrything he does is scruitinized.

    Brady is just treating him like the young player Witfs is. Bet your ass Brady knows everyone on the O line.

  15. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Some things go with saying. Brady knows Wirfs has his back. He’s probably pissed he said he was ok to get back in the Eagles game. Another thing BA screwed the pooch on.

  16. Hawk Says:

    I can understand the reason why his receivers have his number, and I can understand why the guy who hikes him the ball has his number. I just can’t think of a ‘good’ reason why any of the other linemen need it.
    Wirfs isn’t being disrespected. Wirfs’ job just doesn’t require him and the QB to work as closely together as the QB does with his receivers and his center. I would be a lot more concerned if he didn’t have the OC’s number.

  17. sasquatch Says:

    Brady big-timing his teammates… The age difference is significant. Brady is old enough to be Wirfs’ dad.

  18. Aaron Says:

    That Shady lol

  19. PSL Bob Says:

    When TB12 gets word of this, I bet he reaches out to Wirfs. Brady is not a bad dude!

  20. Aaron Says:

    There will be a lot more to come from Shady brady lol

  21. EA Says:

    I don’t buy it, I thought Brady constantly stays in touch with his team mates via text, wasn’t he texting everyone on the team the weak prior to the superbowl……

  22. Bucsfan13 Says:

    This is such a non story. Has Wirfs asked for his number? Brady is the ultimate teammate. The man has been in the league 23 years, and not one teammate former or current has anything bad to say about the guy. How many other players can say the same thing? As far as drama, he can’t help that various media clowns write stories about him. I’m a life long Bucs fan, and I swear some of you suffer from Tom Brady Derangement Syndrome. The various Pats fans act like bitter exes who won’t move on, and some of the Bucs fans and media act like the current insecure girlfriend

  23. DoooshLaRue Says:

    If Durable Donnie has TB’s # and I’m Wirfs…… I’d be pissed.

  24. K2 Says:

    Tristan didn’t keep the number. Brady has called him and probably assumed that…Tristan would keep the number is his phone. Hell, if Tom called me…I’d save the number. (LOL)

  25. Captain Dan Lawrence Says:

    Poorly written,… But I guess if ya want clicks this is what ya gotta lower oneself to. 🙁

  26. WVBuc Says:

    LeBron James would get ethereal into oblivion because he has earned the poor reputation. People build him up to be many things he is not because reasons. Then you have the decision fiasco, constantly changing teams looking for the best players and then running off the court early when they lose, defends China, and I’m not going to get into the active participation in politics via Twitter though he did blast a police officer for saving the life of someone….none of the above can be attributed to Brady.

    The most controversial things he has done is leave New England as quietly as possible, be blamed for cheating he has been proven innocent of doing and having political attire in his personal locker. When Brady earns the reputation James has, then you might connect how the two are treated on social media but not now…not reasonably justified.

  27. WVBuc Says:

    Ethereal = ethered

  28. WVBuc Says:

    Ethereal = ethered
    Spellchecker hell

  29. Anonymous Says:

    I don’t get this. The very first thing we heard the moment after Tom signed in 2020 was that he requested the contact info for EVERY BUC PLAYER. I’m sure this just fell thru the cracks and that Wirfs will get a very friendly call from the GOAT to rectify.

    Tom has NEVER EVER given off that “I’m better than you” attitude to ANY teammate in his life. Wirfs just innocently humbled himself which Team Brady will fix pronto.

    Tampabaybucfan….that’ll do it.

  32. westernbuc Says:

    Do kids even text anymore? Tom probably snapchats the young guys or something

  33. Goatfarmer Says:

    Yep, Listophrenic, it’s all Arians’s fault. You moron.

  34. Crickett Baker Says:

    Listn should change his name to Talknfrmafart.

  35. NamVetTony Says:

    What BS! You really that desperate for a story? From the drama about Brady and coaches, now you just need to stir up some other BS. Take a vacation you sound like a idiot.

  36. Jermaine Graham Says:

    How is anyone on this team trashing Brady? Why would he have Brady’s number? He was possibly retiring and he’s done nothing but boost this team’s presence. You all need to stop the hate and maybe now that Toms I retired and the season starts he’ll get his number. He’s also younger than the other guys who have his number. Quit complaining, root the boys. Up to you though 🤷🏽‍♂️

  37. Mikejp Says:

    They may have another platform such as Twitters or Instagram: “ “The very first thing was he messaged me on Instagram,” Wirfs said Thursday. “I didn’t open it for like nine hours because it was draft night and so I had a ton of messages and I didn’t see it until the next day. And I was like, ‘Oh my gosh.’ I was scared.”

  38. Buczilla Says:

    That’s cool.
