Tom Brady Posts Video of Insane Throwing Accuracy, Social Media Debunks It.
The Florida Man of professional football is at it again. Tom Brady of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers showed a video of what appeared to be remarkable throwing accuracy just two days after uploading a photo of his seven Super Bowl titles.
The video shows Brady about 12 yards away from a football passing machine known as JUGS, which tosses perfect passes to receivers for practice, and can also launch balls to simulate punts and kickoffs. Brady takes a football, hops in place and then launches a ball right between the spinning wheels, which tosses it back to him. He does it again, and then backs up a little more and fires an even harder pass, which knocks over the machine.
So it appears.
The quarterback shared the video on social media, sparking debate over whether the footage was taken at UCLA’s training facilities.
First, here is the video Brady posted to Twitter with him writing, “Training camp starts this week. I’m looking forward to having some actual receivers again…”

While many of Brady’s Twitter followers were awestruck by the performance, others speculated that he might have utilized a videographer and director to create a smoke-and-mirrors effect akin to basketball trick shots or card tricks.
People were quick to respond because he has over 2 million followers on Twitter.
Of course, the Buccaneers were supportive of their quarterback, saying, “That’s our QB.”
“I can’t tell if this is real or nah,” said Becca.
“With all due respect, Tom, a REAL quarterback (like Kirk Cousins) would do that from a truly difficult distance,” Cooper commented.
“Notice how the yard lines near the machine are off by a bit?,” wrote The Bolted One.

Another user said, “The video is reversed.”
Andrew Feinberg, a reporter, inquired, “Is that fully inflated?”

This comes one day he showed off his new Super Bowl ring from last year with the Buccaneers to go along with the six rings he won with the New England Patriots in his first 20 years in the league.
Brady went on to sign with the Buccaneers in the 2020 offseason and lead them to the playoffs in his first season in South Florida. He led the Bucs to three away playoff wins, and then they became the first team to win a Super Bowl in their home stadium, which happened nearly six months ago.
Throughout the Super Bowl festivities, Brady appeared drunk while tossing the Lombardi Trophy from one boat to another on the river.
Since coming to Tampa, he entered the wrong house while trying to find his offensive coordinator and was also pulled over by police for working out in a city park when COVID restrictions were in effect. The typical “Florida man” story, in other words.
Whether the video is real or not, his record as an NFL quarterback is legitimate. He has more wins and playoff victories than anyone else, more Super Bowl appearances, more Super Bowl titles and is among the top passers in every major career statistic.
And he’ll be back in 2021 to win even more.
