Tom Brady posts funny photo after blowout win, makes joke about Belichick (pic)

All the naysayers who were starting to say it was quickly becoming the beginning of the end for Tom Brady — his career, his time in New England, and so on and so forth — were forced to eat their words after the veteran signal-caller led the Patriots to a 43-17 blowout over the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday night, less than a week after the team was throttled on “Monday Night Football” by the Kansas City Chiefs.

Brady threw for 292 yards and two touchdowns and was very efficient and effective, going 23-35 passing.

Following the big win, which should quiet down the chirping regarding the end of the Patriots dynasty for at least a week, Brady took to Facebook to post a rather silly photo of himself striking a goofy celebratory pose.

What a doofus.

Brady writes on Facebook, “Thanks to all of the fans for the support tonight. A night I’ll never forget. Let’s keep it going for the rest of the season!

We’re on to Buffalo…”

The “We’re on to Buffalo” comment of course is a reference to Bill Belichick’s awkward press conference last week where the curmudgeonly coach invoked some variation of the phrase “We’re on to Cincinnati” repeatedly while shutting down the media’s various inquiries.

Well played, Tommy Boy. Well played, indeed.

Brady has been on fire of late on social media, posting several amusing and enlightening photos on Facebook showcasing that his sense of humor has remained intact despite some early season struggles.

A “Throwback Thursday” post on Facebook a few weeks ago had Brady showing off his post-Michigan, pre-NFL Draft résumé … you know, had things not worked out.

He then made light of how Mark Wahlberg had snubbed Patriots owner Robert Kraft on a high-five effort during a game by Photoshopping himself into a photo so that Kraft did not appear to be left hanging.

He then posted a self-deprecating photo of himself looking a little frightened while riding Space Mountain.

Suffice to say, Brady is definitely being something of a cutup on social media. Something that Patriots fans should greet as an encouraging sign as to the quarterback’s state of mind as the team navigated a rough patch early on this season.
