A regular guy on Twitter dissed Tom Brady’s running speed — and Brady clapped back

Video game maker Electronic Arts recently revealed the player ratings for the latest edition of their popular Madden NFL franchise.

On Monday, a Twitter user took a shot at Brady's speed while questioning why the New England Patriots' star quarterback received an overall rating of 96 in Madden 20. Yahoo replied with a photo of Brady and his six Super Bowl rings, to which Harrington sent a second reply: "Again, he can't run 2 yards".

And yes, Brady took notice to the new animation, and he wasn't exactly happy about it.

However, the model comes with new design features, including a better balancing capability and a new position lock system. The stabilizer also has a new ActiveTrack 3.0 mode that's similar to what's available for DJI's drones and Osmo cameras.

New England Patriots training camp starts next week at Gillette Stadium, but the defending Super Bowl champs already are favorites to win their Week 1 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. "As an individual, he's not a 96". "So could 50% of high schoolers, 80% of college players, and 99% of pros", he wrote.

"I'm so much faster than you Matt", Brady later responded.

Brady seemed to realize that as well, and jokingly tweeted a video that he said he would like to submit to Madden for his speed rating. That raised the ire of one fan, whose argument against that rating was primarily based on Brady's lack of speed. "You can't photoshop a video".
