Trash Talk Ramping Up Between Brady and Manning


“The Match” is rapidly approaching and the charity event is already beginning to produce fireworks between two of the NFL’s greatest quarterbacks to play on the gridiron.  The four players who will be hitting the links in two weeks took to a video call to hype up the charity event and they did not disappoint in the trash talk department.

Prior to the video call and the official announcement of the event, Tom Brady took to his Instagram to get the trash talking started.  Brady posted, “Never had much of a hard time beating the colts or a tiger, don’t see this time being much different…”.  In the picture he posted, Brady had his face and his partner Phil Mickelson’s face photoshopped onto a bodies of two players while Brady has his arm around a child with Peyton Manning’s face and Woods is near him.  Brady has been more active on social media than ever since leaving the Patriots in free agency for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this offseason. 

Ernie Johnson joined the golf and football icons and the zingers started flying around and quick.  Mickelson won the first ever match between him and Woods and he started the jabs.  Mickelson had a picture of Woods putting the green jacket on him and he said, “Tiger’s pretty familiar with this, obviously, when you were putting the jacket on me it fit perfect, thank you.  And then this is the trophy for the match — I don’t know, actually Tiger, if you know what this looks like,” Mickelson said.  “You might have caught a glimpse, but that’s actually what the trophy looks like had you won.”

Mickelson really didn’t have much to say after that and Woods hit Lefty with a counterpunch.  Woods, who was sitting in his home, replied to the comments by Mickelson saying, “understood”. Woods then reached off camera and said, “I just got out of an ice bath, and I’m a little bit chilly,” the reigning and defending Masters champion Woods then wrapped himself with his own green jacket.  Touché Woods. 

The NFL quarterbacks stole the show with the jabs and smack talk, and Manning and Brady did not disappoint.  Brady and Manning were witty and threw some pretty good jabs at each other.  “I actually thought I was going to be Tiger’s partner, but then Peyton’s dad called and switched the teams,” Brady said.  That one-liner by Brady was a great rib that referenced Manning’s father Archie and his “influence” on where Manning’s brother Eli would play in the NFL.  Brady threw other one-liners out there but they seemed awkward.  They were funny but the guys took a little while to understand they were punchlines. 

“The tournament had to be in Florida after Tom’s B&E arrest,” Manning said of Brady, who actually was not arrested for breaking and entering or anything else after walking into the wrong house.  “With the ankle monitor, he couldn’t leave the state.   So it had to be in Florida.  Tiger and I talked to the sheriff in Tampa, and he’s going to be allowed to go to Palm Beach to play.”  Manning has always been a funny personality off the football field.  Manning delivered top-notch material to hype the “Match” and ribbed Brady pretty good. 

“I would have loved to have had this tournament in a place where they don’t like Tom very much — Indianapolis, Denver, Boston after he just betrayed them and broke their hearts,” Manning said.  “So Palm Beach is the best we can probably do”, said Manning.  If Manning and Woods are taken down by Brady and Lefty it won’t be because they didn’t talk it up before the match. 

The players will tee off on May 24 from the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida. The event can be seen on TNT, TBS, truTv and HLN at 3pm.
