Newsflash folks, this comment was said in jest. There is not a soul on the planet earth, whether they are employed by the Philadelphia Eagles or not, that truly believes that Sam Bradford playing the greatest game of his career could shine the shoes of Tom Brady playing with the 6th string offensive scrubs he'll be throwing to on Sunday. That's why Sam Bradford should take personal offense to this comment, because sarcastically saying that your quarterback is the best is nearly the equivalent of sincerely saying that he's the worst. C'mon Byron, don't kick a man when he is literally down having trainers closely examine his fragile body for the 235th time in his career.
The most disappointing part about this is that Byron didn't even have to bring up Sam Bradford. He could have just given some bland ass soundbite about how much he respects what Tom Brady has accomplished over the course his career. Nope, he had to involve his own quarterback and thus pointed out how absurd that comparison even is. For you hockey fans out there, it's like when you fall in love with the 4th line grinder that probably doesn't even belong in the league. You'll say silly shit like "he's my favorite player of all time" or "he's so much fun to watch", but you never actually mean it. For fuck's sake, most of the time the guy can barely stay on his feet for an entire shift, but constantly complimenting him just sheds light on how undeserving he is of genuine adoration. This response is so absurd that it's not even billboard material. The only person that could possibly use this as a source of motivation is Sam Bradford if he's able to get back on the practice field this week. You can bet your ass he'll be calling for a ton of double moves on a very particular member of his own secondary. I bet Tom Brady saw this and gave it a heart laugh. I'll tell you who shouldn't find this all that funny though, and that's it's own originator, because he's not all that different from the player he just mocked. Sam Bradford was brought in to be first on the depth chart and has failed pretty miserably in doing so. Gee, who does that remind me of...
