Ryan Fitzpatrick On Tom Brady: 'He Just Pisses Me Off'

Former NFL quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Longtime former NFL quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is no fan of Tom Brady. 

Earlier this year, Fitzpatrick went on the "Pardon My Take" podcast. A clip of that episode in which Fitzpatrick talks about Brady is going viral on social media this week. 

In the clip, Fitzpatrick explains that he disrespects Brady because he left the field without shaking his hand following a Patriots loss back in 2011.

"I’ve told this story before, but he just pisses me off because you’re in Buffalo, you’re playing New England, they’re kicking our ass—every single year they’re beating us," Fitzpatrick said. "We finally in 2011 knocked them off. It was right at the beginning of the season. We had this great start, and he threw five interceptions in the game, which was just wonderful to see every single one of them.

“It was like wonderful to see and runs straight off, like no handshake, no quarterback middle-of-the-field where the cameras are, ‘Hey, stay healthy, buddy.’ You know, pat me on the head and let me go. He just ran straight off. It bothered me so much because there was no respect there. Every time I played him after that it was like, let’s make this dude respect me.”

This is nothing new from Tom Brady. He's left the field and snubbed plenty of players from midfield handshakes after games. It's just the way he is. 

Ryan Fitzpatrick has every right to hate Tom Brady, but we highly doubt the NFL legend is going to lose sleep over this.
