Tennessee Titans HC Mike Vrabel victimized by epic roasting from Tom Brady
Debate continues to rage, even in Tennessee Titans circles, about whether the New England Patriots dynasty was more about what Bill Belichick was doing or more about the fact that he had Tom Brady as his signal-caller. Recent history has swung that argument in TB12’s favor, but we may never know, and guys like Titans head coach Mike Vrabel always seem to credit both when he mentions his playing days.
It may seem like it was, but it wasn’t that long ago that Vrabel and Brady were teammates on some pretty good Patriots squads. These days, Brady’s still tossing touchdown passes (and winning Super Bowls), albeit for another team now. Belichick still paces the sideline in Foxborough, but Vrabel, seemingly the only one that’s aged, has traded a pair of shoulder pads for a headset.
Don’t think that the competitive fire has quelled for either guy though. Brady and Vrabel take every opportunity to roast each other whenever they can. On the second day in September, the greatest quarterback the NFL has ever seen struck again.
The G.O.A.T. roasts the Tennessee Titans head coach.
Raise your hand if you knew that Tom Brady has completed, if our math is correct here, ten completions to Mike Vrabel. All of which have resulted in touchdowns. You’d think, after Super Bowl XXXVIII, that the jig would have been up. Now, you know Vrabel doesn’t play on offense. Why were teams constantly fooled by this?
Well anyway, that’s another story for another day. The only possible way for these two to meet on the field now is if Tennessee meets the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the next Super Bowl. We’re not counting the recent preseason game of course.
Vrabel and Brady maintain a bond and a friendship today, always looking for opportunities to jab at one another as brothers sometimes do. Prior to Tennessee’s second preseason game, Brady, with a smile, mentioned that Vrabel had “toned down a little bit in his old age”. It’s his most recent attempt to throw shade at Coach Vrabel, however, that could earn him Hall of Fame status, and you can best believe that we’re not talking about the one in Canton, Ohio.
Take a look
Seriously, what can you say after that? We won’t call it check-mate yet, but Mike Vrabel needs to visit the school of trash talk because from the outside looking in, he has a ways to go before he catches up with the G.O.A.T.
Don’t worry! We’re pulling for you Coach!
