Tom Brady may be the best quarterback in football history. His credentials are well-known, and on Sunday evening, we learned that he’s as bad of a wide receiver as he is outstanding of a quarterback.
The Patriots were facing a third down and decided that it was time to turn to the back of the playbook. They decided to run a reverse to Danny Amendola, which was risky, because the Eagles sniffed it out immediately.
What the Eagles did not anticipate was that Amendola was going to throw a pass to his 40-year-old quarterback. The issue here is that Brady is, well, a 40-year-old dude who is not a natural pass catcher, so you can anticipate how this went.
