The rivalry between Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes is just getting started.
Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes lobbed some friendly trash talk toward one another through Twitter for some spicy drama on Tuesday afternoon.
It all started when Brady quote-tweeted the Kansas City Royals who shared a video of catcher Sal Perez sporting a Brady jersey while saying “Patrick Mahomes is the best.”
Perez lost a bet with the Tampa Bay Rays over the Super Bowl, which was won by Brady’s Buccaneers over Mahomes’ Chiefs. Perez had to wear a Brady jersey as part of losing the bet, but the Royals captioned the video by saying, “Sometimes words speak louder than actions.”
Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes escalate rivalry with Twitter trash talk
Brady, one of the best follows on Twitter regardless of your fandom, couldn’t let this opportunity pass him by. Brady quoted the Royals tweet with, “Nahhh I think actions always speak louder than words.”
We have the makings of a Twitter feud on our hands. But Mahomes joining the conversation took things to a whole new level.
Mahomes quoted Brady’s tweet by saying, “I guess we will see in 20 years…”
Both the Mahomes tweet and the Brady tweet are already sky-rocketing with thousands and thousands of retweets and several hundred replies under both. Both quarterbacks are about to be trending any second now and we have some front-page NFL news with the two best quarterbacks taking their rivalry to new heights.
This is just some great fun and there is no hate or public animosity in either of these tweets. Both Mahomes and Brady have immense respect for one another but it’s Brady who has bragging rights for now.
Maybe we’ll see a Super Bowl rematch next February and the next chapter in this great rivalry will have a new undisputed champ on the Twitter streets.
