Tom Brady is a three-time Super Bowl champ, a two-time Super Bowl MVP, a two-time NFL MVP. He has been selected to the Pro Bowl ten times. He’s been a first-team All-Pro three times.

He is, without a doubt, one of the top five quarterbacks in the history of the NFL.

Today, Ray Lewis, a supposed NFL analyst for ESPN, told Stephen A. Smith that Tom Brady is only known because of the tuck rule.

This is high-level trolling everyone!

“Listen, not to go all totally out of conscious, but just think about this, Stephen A., honest to God. When we – the first time we created something called a tuck rule, it’s the only reason we know – I’m just being honest! – the only reason we know who Tom Brady is, because of a tuck rule! There’s no such thing as a tuck rule! If the ball is in your hand, and I knock it out your hand, whether it’s going backwards, forwards, lateral, sideways, however it’s coming out, that’s a freaking fumble!

“But guess what we created? We created a freaking tuck rule!


“They don’t go to that championship game – they don’t go to that championship game if that tuck rule, if that ball is not called a tuck! That’s a fumble! Charles Woodson made that man clearly fumble the ball and they named it the tuck rule, something that we’ve never heard in today’s game. So now you’ve got to ask yourself: When did the legacy really start?”

This has nothing to do with the Ravens rivalry with the Patriots, does it Ray? Does it?

“…what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”
