GAA stars took to Twitter last night after being left in awe of legendary NFL Quarterback Tom Brady’s latest feat.
The 43-year-old led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Super Bowl LV with a 31-26 victory over the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, where he threw for three touchdown passes in a thrilling game.
The NFC Championship victory marks the Buccaneers first in 18 years and will see Brady, whose ancestors hail from Co Cavan, playing in his 10th Super Bowl next Sunday week against the defending champions Kansas City Chiefs in Tampa Bay, Florida.
Having parted ways with the New England Patriots in March of last year, Brady once again proved doubters wrong last night and GAA stars on Twitter saluted the six-time Super Bowl champion after the achievement.
Tom Brady is the only active player in the NFL who has more Super Bowl rings than fingers on one hand to wear them #goat— Diarmuid Connolly (@dermoc123) January 25, 2021
Honest question : Am I wrong in thinking Patriots “fans” should be disgusted and not openly celebrating Brady making it to the Super Bowl ?? Or am I missing something ??— Paudie O'Sullivan (@psull88) January 24, 2021

Do you trust your All-Pro QB to make a play from 9 yards or trust your average D to stop Tom Brady? Packers got what they deserved there for awful playcalling #NFL— Tomás Quinn (@mossyquinn) January 24, 2021
Tom Brady is the exception to “nobody is bigger than the team”. pic.twitter.com/piPDSA71vl— Paul Geaney (@Geaney15) January 24, 2021
