Brady takes rare loss as Seaver remains the rightful Tom Terrific

Brady takes rare loss as Seaver remains the rightful Tom Terrific

Tom Brady is the greatest QB of all time. That argument is over and his place in history was cemented years ago. He’s done and seen it all. However, despite all of his accolades, he is NOT “Tom Terrific.”

That’s a rare L for Brady. He always comes through when it matters the most on the gridiron, just not in the courtroom. First, he lost his deflategate battle and now the Tom Terrific trademark? I think it might be time for Brady to hire a new legal team. 

This felt like a money grab from the start. Literally, no one calls Brady “Tom Terrific.” It’s a catchy name and something you can slap on merchandise to make a few extra bucks. That was really the whole plan here. I respect the hustle. I just have no respect for people who make up their own nickname. That’s not how it works.

That nickname is reserved for the one and only, Tom Seaver. I’ve always been a bigger fan of calling him “The Franchise,” but a player of Seaver’s caliber deserves a laundry list of nickname options. Reboots are all the rage in Hollywood these days. Fortunately for Mets fans, the remake of Tom Terrific has been canceled before it ever started.

The Mets are the hottest team in baseball. They can't lose on or off the field right now. You know things are going good when even Tom Brady can't beat you. 

Soon enough you’ll be able to meet at the Tom Terrific statue outside of Citi Field! 

If you're not down with us having these two words, Brady, we've got two for you...
