Undisputed’s Shannon Sharpe had some words for Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady during the show on Monday morning.

Sharpe had a lot to say on Monday following the Buccaneers defeating the Atlanta Falcons a day earlier. With the win, the Bucs move to 9-5 and are still firmly in the playoff hunt.

However, Sharpe was still critical of the Buccaneers quarterback. The famous TV personality says that Brady only “deserves half the credit” for the Buccaneers comeback win against the Falcons.

“Tom played as well in the 2nd half as he played poorly in the 1st,” Sharpe pointed out on Undisputed. “But he deserves 50% of the credit because the defense bowed their backs in the 2nd half. They made just enough plays for Brady to get in a rhythm.”

Sharpe says that while the 17-point comeback win was impressive, the Tampa Bay offense dug itself into a hole in the first half.

“He created this situation that he and the offense dug their way out of,” Sharpe says in the video. “To be honest with you though, Skip, I’ll go 50-50. I thought in the first half the defense didn’t get enough stops. But in the second half they made timely plays.”

The Falcons had a 17-0 lead at halftime and 24-7 in the third quarter, but the Tampa Bay offense was able into a rhythm in the second half. The Buccaneers scored on five straight possessions and took the lead for once and for all when Tom Brady connected with Antonio Brown for a 46-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Tom Brady gave credit to both sides of the ball when speaking to reporters after the game.

“You know it was great poise by everybody,” Brady said. “Everybody hung in there. We got off to a tough start but found a way to win. Our defense came up huge and made some big stops. Offensively, everybody made a bunch of different plays. It was a great win for our team but we have to keep building on it.”

Shannon Sharpe Has Trolled Tom Brady Before

Sharpe’s comments on Monday were not the first time he has gotten after Tom Brady publicly. After a brutal loss in Week 12 to the Kansas City Chiefs, Sharpe got after Tom Brady on Twitter. The Buccaneers quarterback put up good stats against the Chiefs but despite his efforts couldn’t bring home a win. Brady threw for 345 yards and three touchdowns along with two interceptions in the 27-24 loss.

Sharpe quickly went to work on social media tweeting, “Had some leftover L’s from Thanksgiving.”

The picture shows Shannon Sharpe serving the Bucs QB a flaming “L” on a plate. Based on his facial expression, Brady does not appreciate the gift. Sharpe also appears to have photoshopped Kansas City quarterback, Patrick Mahomes’ hair onto his own head.
