Tom Brady is the greatest NFL quarterback of all time according to most.

He has won seven Super Bowls but he also lost two of them to nemesis Eli Manning of the New York Giants.

There have been prevailing conspiracy theories around how the NFL is scripted and some in the NFL have even had some fun with them, making jokes. Former NFL running back Arian Foster stirred the pot by saying he was given a script back in his playing days.

So when asked if he would do a scripted NFL show to talk about those losses to Manning, Brady did not bite his tongue.

, Brady said:

“You think I really would have played along with a script that had me losing to Peyton’s little brother Eli twice in the Super Bowl? No,” said Brady in an NFL promo he did for the start of the regular season.

The clip showed a lighter and fun side of Brady that the public rarely sees. The former QB seems to have loosened up and is having a lot of fun during his retirement.

But knowing the NFL, you know Eli Manning will do a promo answering Brady, perhaps during ManningCast, and you can expect it to be just as funny as Brady’s promo.
