Much is being made about the upcoming Divisional Round matchup between Drew Brees and Tom Brady, but no one has had more fun with the topic than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback.
With jokes circulating about their age (this will be the first playoffs game in league history when both starting quarterbacks are 40-plus years old), one popular jab has been to suggest it should be broadcast on the History Channel, a week after Nickelodeon covered the New Orleans Saints in its first NFL playoff game.
Brady initially shared a graphic depicting himself and Brees with gray beards, which his teammate Rob Gronkowski joked should be narrated by the great Morgan Freeman. Caliendo, a famed impressionist and big-time NFL fan, was happy to oblige. Listen for yourself; it’s pretty spot-on.
Of course Brady’s edit digs a little harder at Brees, who is shown with quite a receded hairline and reading-glasses. But some bias is to be expected after Brees defeated Brady in two meetings during the regular season, something he had never experienced before. Now it’s time to go for the three-game sweep.
