Tom Brady Jokes About Telling Gronk To ‘Stand Up’ During Sunday’s Game In Post-Game Instagram Video
If you watched Sunday night’s game between the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs you may have noticed a play in the second quarter where Tom Brady had to yell at Rob Gronkowksi to “stand up” before snapping the ball.
Gronk, apparently, was not supposed to be in a blocking stance on that particular play so, like a very good boy, when Brady told him to stand up, he did.
Reactions from the internet were also pretty funny.
After NBC and their microphones picked up on this brief comedy moment, Brady in a rare post-game video, joked about it on Instagram.
“W (Lay down @gronk! Go to sleep!),” Brady captioned the video.
“Great win against a great team. 5 and 2, that’s the goal, Chicago next,” said Brady in the video. “Gonna need everybody… Gronk, you can line up however you want you keep stiff-arming people like that. (whispering) Let’s go! My kids are sleeping.”
Meanwhile, and more importantly, on the quest for TB1K, Brady ran for two more yards Sunday night, moving him to within 17 at 983 yards rushing in his career.
Wonder if the NFL will stop the game and give Brady a sweet laminated piece of paper recognizing his achievement like they did when Drew Brees became the all time passing yards leader?
