Brady's latest ad is UGGsly


Brady's latest ad is UGGsly

By Jon Fucile

After the fiasco on the water slide where Tom Brady looked like he was terrified going down what looked like a three foot slide, one had to wonder whether or not Brady could possibly be less manly. Weve seen people getting chased by bears that looked less scared than Brady on that water slide.

Then Brady one-upped himself. Or one-downed himself depending on how you look at it. He made a deal with UGG to promote UGGs for men.

Let that sentence sink in for a little bit here: UGGs. For. Men.

Ugh. Notice it doesnt say For Real Men because that would just be false advertising. This ad looks like hes trying to be some kind of cowboy. You know, the type of cowboy that would get the crap kicked out of him if he showed up to a saloon wearing those boots.

No one should ever wear UGGs. Not men, not women and especially not NFL quarterbacks. UGGs are ugly, idiotic footwear that spoiled teenage girls and 40-year old ladies who are pretending theyre still in their early 20s wear. Yeah, it is totally a great idea to wear some fur lined boots in the summer time with your mini skirt that wouldnt fit a 5-year old, you fool.

You look ridiculous.

Brady might as well just grow his hair out, throw on some tight jeans and walk around holding his kid while sporting his new foot wear because if he wants to dress like one of those girls from 16 and Pregnant he might as well play the part, too.

Seriously, Tom, what the hell is wrong with you? You dont need the money that bad. Youre the highest paid quarterback in the NFL and your wife makes millions and millions a year for looking good from the neck down. She probably wants a real man. If you keep wearing UGGs, you do know how this is going to end up dont you?

The ladies love Chad! We polled a couple of other big Boston athletes to get their opinions. Hey Jason Varitek, would you wear UGGs?

Hes about 80 and that is just one of the reasons he wouldnt wear UGGs. How about you, Tim Thomas? Would someone as awesome as you wear something so crappy?

See that, Tom? See?! Real champions dont wear UGGs. Maybe this is why Eli said he's as good as you. Obviously, he isnt as good talent-wise but his Manningface isnt nearly as terrible as those UGGs, Tom.

Eli has to get drunk to watch highlights of himself after games and to get through Tom Brady UGGs ads without waiting to physically harm himself. All we can hope for is that Bill pulls Tom aside and gives him the what-for!

Well forgive you if you win another Super Bowl this year. Maybe.

Butler imitates Brown with post-interception dance: 'Nothing personal'


Butler imitates Brown with post-interception dance: 'Nothing personal'

Malcolm Butler didn't mean any disrespect. After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. 


When the Patriots corner picked off a Landry Jones pass in the first quarter -- one that was intended for receiver Antonio Brown -- Butler stood up in the end zone, faced the Heinz Field crowd, stuck one arm in the air a and gyrated like someone had attached jumper cables to his facemask. 

He was doing his best to mimick one of Brown's well-known touchdown dances.

"Me and Brown had conversation before," Butler said, "and it was a joke to him once I showed him how I do it. Much love for that guy. Nothing personal."

For Butler, it was the highlight of what was a productive afternoon. The third-year corner was asked to shadow Brown for much of the day, and he allowed Brown to catch five of nine targets for 94 yards. He also broke up a pair of passes intended for Brown's teammates.

“Stopping Antonio Brown, that’s impossible," Butler said. "You can’t stop him. You can only slow him down. I just went out there and tried to compete today . . . Great players are going to make plays but you have to match their intensity.”
Even on the longest throw from backup quarterback Landry Jones to Brown, a 51-yarder, it appeared as though Butler played the coverage called correctly. 

Butler lined up across from Brown and trailed him underneath as Brown worked his jway from the left side of the field to the right. Butler was looking for some help over the top in that scenario, seemingly, but because Brown ran across the formation, it was hard for the back end of the defense to figure out who would be helping Butler. 

Belichick admitted as much after the game. 

"He was on [Brown] a lot the way we set it up," Belichick said. "Look, they've got great players. They're tough to cover. They hit us on a couple over routes, in cut where they kind of ran away from the coverage that we had. 

"The plays were well designed. Good scheme, good thorws and obviously good routes by Brown. They got us on a couple, but I thought we competed hard. We battled all the way. We battled on third down. We battled in the red area. They made some. We made some, but they're good. They have a lot of good players."

And Brown, in particular, is about as close as it gets to unstoppable in the NFL. Butler found that out in Week 1 of last year when he matched up with Brown in his first game as a starter, giving up nine catches for 133 yards to the All-Pro wideout. 

Though Sunday might not have been perfect for Butler, it was better than that day about 14 months ago. And at times, it was worth dancing about.

SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL: Seahawks, Cardinals miss OT FGs, tie 6-6

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Seattle's Stephen Hauschka and Arizona's Chandler Catanzaro missed short field goals that would have won the game in overtime and the Seahawks and Cardinals settled for a 6-6 tie Sunday night.

Hauschka's 27-yard field goal was wide left with seven seconds left after Catanzaro's 24-yarder bounced off the left upright.

The tie was the Cardinals' first since Dec. 7, 1986, a 10-10 draw at Philadelphia when the franchise was based in St. Louis. It was the first for the Seattle since entering the NFL in 1976.
