Tennessee Titans: Patriots Tom Brady trolls Mike Vrabel with trophy
New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady, trolled Tennessee Titans head coach, Mike Vrabel, with a trophy on Thursday.
New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady, returned the favor to Tennessee Titans head coach, Mike Vrabel, with a little trolling of his own after the former Patriot fired the first shots on Wednesday.
Vrabel kicked-off the trolling with his old teammate during the first joint practice between the Titans and Patriots on Wednesday. The Titans head coach yelled at Brady for walking onto the field, which was all caught on camera.
On Thursday, Brady had his own fun by presenting Vrabel with a trophy that had the score of last year’s Week 10 game between the two teams. It was a game the Titans won convincingly, 34-10.
The obvious troll here is that it’s a sarcastic celebration of a win that ended up meaning nothing for the Titans, and a loss that meant even less for the Patriots.
The Titans would go on to miss the playoffs after losing a do-or-die game in Week 17 against the Indianapolis Colts, while the Patriots went on to win Super Bowl LIII against the Los Angeles Rams.
The Pats extended a nice gesture on Wednesday for Vrabel, who celebrated his 44th birthday. Pats head coach, Bill Belichick, sent his rookies over to sing “Happy Birthday” to the Titans coach.
Clearly there is still a lot of love between Vrabel and his former Patriots mates. The former linebacker spent eight seasons in New England and won multiple Super Bowls with the franchise.
There was a thought there could be some bad blood based on comments made by Titans running back, Dion Lewis, following the aforementioned blowout win in 2018, but the light-hearted moments between Vrabel, Brady, and Belichick have kept things loose.
The Pats and Titans will meet one final time on Saturday night in Nashville for each team’s second preseason game.
