Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady had an incredible response to the Patriots reintroducing red throwback uniforms for 2022.
Tom Brady has spent some time this year trying to convince Tampa Bay to bring back their iconic creamsicle uniforms ahead of schedule.
So far he hasn’t been successful. Instead, he got to watch as his former team brought back their beloved red uniforms for 2022.
On Wednesday, the Patriots announced their new throwback uniforms, featuring red jerseys and their old helmet decal. Brady’s response was awesome.
Tom Brady had a hilarious reaction to the Patriots’ red throwbacks
New England’s look was received with near-universal acclaim. In Brady’s case, it was good-natured jealousy as well.
It’s pretty clear he would have loved to suit up in that red jersey and white helmet again before he left for Tampa Bay.
While Brady wore those uniforms at times during his Patriots career, he had to go without for the final eight seasons because the NFL instituted a rule limiting teams to just one helmet each year. The lifting of that rule has allowed teams to go all-out with throwbacks this season.
Now that the Pats have thrown down the uniform gauntlet, the only appropriate response from the Bucs is to respond with a creamsicle announcement for 2022.
The creamsicles are coming back eventually at least. The plan for the orange jerseys is for them to debut in 2023. The team cited global supply chain issues as the reason for the delay.
Maybe Brady has some more magic up his sleeves to make it happen.
