Tom Brady, Mike Vrabel Hillariously Trade Verbal Jabs At Pats-Tiatns Practice
August 14, 2019
Titans head coach Mike Vrabel was once part of the
Patriots nation. Vrabel enters his second year as a head coach in Tennessee. The
Patriots and Titans had a joint practice Wednesday, and the former Patriots
linebacker had a brief exchange with the Patriots quarterback.
“Why don’t you pay attention to your own (expletive)?!” the GOAT replied.
The Patriots didn’t forget to show Vrabel some love. Head coach Bill Belichick made his rookies sing happy birthday to Vrabel, who just turned 44.
“It was fun,” Vrabel
said after the practice Wednesday. “It brought back a lot of memories. Just to
be able to sit out there and have him — they make a play and he (Brady) turns
around and says, ‘Mikey you better cover that. You guys need to do this.’ I’m
sure I had plenty to say too.”
The Titans head coach didn’t miss the chance to
express his respect for Brady and everything he has done so far. Brady has been
playing football for two decades, and he won six Super Bowls. That’s something
“It’s something that’s very unusual in this league — the
longevity and the success over a course of time,” Vrabel said. “But Tom’s very
committed to football and to winning and to being very competitive and taking
care of his body, continuing to find new ways to train. He knows exactly when
he needs to start training. Maybe he doesn’t start as early. It’s a different
routine that maybe he had when he was 26. It’s fun for us. Good for us to be
able to compete against him.”
England Patriots played their preseason opener against the Detroit Lions, and
tore them to pieces. Brady didn’t suit up for the big game, and Julian Edelman
was out, too. The rookies did their job, and let’s just say that the Patriots
squad is full of talented names. The season is right behind the corner, and the
Patriots are ready to win.
