Now that Tom Brady has pretty much cemented his status as the greatest of all time, his social media game is headed that way as well.
On Thursday, Brady’s troll game was at its peak when he filmed himself responding to a TikTok trend asking users to “tell me something honest.”
Brady said he had to come clean regarding a certain play …
“The ‘Tuck Rule’ game against the Raiders?” Brady said as he looked around to see if anyone is within earshot of what he was about to say, “Might have been a fumble.”

Of course, the former New England Patriots quarterback is referring to the AFC division round playoff game in 2002 against the then-Oakland Raiders, when he fumbled late in the fourth quarter on a hit by Charles Woodson. The Raiders recovered the ball only to have officials use replay to overturn the call, ruling that Brady’s arm was coming forward, so the pass was incomplete.
The Patriots went on to win the game in overtime and won the Super Bowl over the then-St. Louis Rams weeks later with a last-second field goal.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady takes a hit from Charles Woodson of the Oakland Raiders on a pass attempt in the last two minutes of an AFC divisional playoff game on Jan. 19, 2002. The Patriots won, 16-13 in overtime, in the famous “Tuck Rule” game.
Of course, the current Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB wasn’t done with his trolling.
In another post, Brady’s caption read, “I said might. Such a tough call. No choice but to respect the officials probably correct decision.”
