Tom Brady Hilariously Explains Why he Missed Block on Trick Play

During the 4th quarter of the Patriots’ 31-17 win over the Packers at Gillette Stadium last night, Pats OC Josh McDaniels called for a trick play that caught the Packers off guard, but it also caught the Pats QB Tom Brady a little off guard as well. Brady hiked the ball and rifled it over to Julian Edelman for an apparent screen pass, but instead of going upfield with the ball, Edelman threw it back across the field to running back James White who had a host of lineman and Brady in front of him setting up a screen. White took the ball and sprinted past Brady and down the sideline for a 37-yard gain before being tackled at the 2-yard line.

Brady wasn’t able to get a block on anyone, though, because he wasn’t exactly sure what he was allowed to do. “That was a great play,” Brady said after the game. “I mean, I had no idea. You get out in space, I have no idea what the hell’s going on. I don’t know what’s legal to hit or dive or cut. I thought, ‘No way the ball is getting to me.’ And next thing you know, James is running behind me and I said, ‘S—!’ just as he’s running by me because I probably could have made a play to get him a touchdown, but you live and learn.”

We’ll forgive Brady as he showed yet again last night why he is the GOAT!!
