ESPN on Monday night played a bizarre animation with Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady and his former head coach, New England’s Bill Belichick.
In the animation, it shows Brady, dressed in his Tampa Bay Buccaneers uniform, walking to the front door and answering it. When he opens the door, it’s Belichick.
The scene is apparently reminiscent of one in the movie “Love Actually,” where a character lets another one know about his love through cue cards.
Bill Belichick Goes Through Cue Cards For Tom Brady
Belichick’s first cue card reads “Since you left Tom” and goes through a litany of things that have happened to the Patriots in 2020.
The Patriots will not win 10 games this season nor make the NFL playoffs, marking the end of a 17-season double-digit season win streak. It also puts finality on New England’s 11-season playoff streak.
On the other hand, Brady is leading Tampa Bay into the NFL playoffs for the first time since 2007.
Take a look at this animation piece from “Monday Night Football” via Twitter.
Brady Speaks Out On Taking Shot At Tony Dungy
Earlier in December, Tom Brady had to explain his motives after he got into a bit of a Twitter back-and-forth with former NFL head coach Tony Dungy.
In an interview, Dungy had ranked Brady as merely the sixth most difficult quarterback to face on the field. He put quarterbacks like Aaron Rodgers and John Elway ahead of Tom Brady.
In response, Brady tweeted a reminder that the Colts, a team Dungy had coached previously, lost to New England during the 2014 season. That year, the Patriots – Brady’s team at the time – defeated the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl.
“I was just having fun,” Tom Brady said. “You know, I was only referring to him as the Indy head coach, not the Bucs’ head coach. So, it was nothing personal. Coach Dungy knows I love him. I was just giving him a little grief. He gave me a little grief, I give him a little grief. It was all in good fun.”
