Tom Brady is arguably the greatest quarterback and winner in NFL history, but at the same time, he can be a terrible loser when things do not go his way.
According to Pro Football Hall-of-Famer and Fox Sports host Shannon Sharpe, Brady’s antics as a sore loser are often overlooked, not because he’s a proven winner, but because of the color of his skin.
Just last week, Brady was asked about snubbing former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles of a handshake after Super Bowl LII. “I always try to be a good sport,” Brady claimed.
“There’s a lot of things that he does that gets written off as ‘that’s passion, that’s competitiveness.’ That’s bulljive!” Sharpe argued on Undisputed. “And we would not let that fly had Cam Newton, or Lamar Jackson, or Kyler Murray runs to the opposing sideline and tells a coach ‘go bleep yourself.’”
“You threw me a curveball there,” Skip Bayless responded to Sharpe. “You just went racial. Are you saying he’s getting a racial pass just because he’s White?”
“Of course,” Sharpe answered. “There’s no possible way that a Black quarterback can do some of the things that Tom Brady did and get away with it.’
Leading the defending champions to the win over the Eagles this past weekend, Brady completed 29-of-37 passes for 271 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions.
At the ripe age of 44, Brady has his name squarely in the mix to win an MVP after his stellar regular season. He led the NFL this season with 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns.
