New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and receiver Julian Edelman have been teammates for seven seasons now, which in bro time is basically a lifetime.
They feel comfortable enough to rib each other publicly, and their back-and-forth is very entertaining.
Brady got things started Monday by calling Edelman out for "flexing" while the quarterback attempted to get in the end zone against the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday. The play in the photo was a 10-yard run by Brady in the second quarter in which the officials, even after review, ruled that the ball did not break the plane of the goal line.
The way Brady sees it, he would have had a better shot of getting into the end zone had Edelman been blocking and not flexing. Of course, it was all in good fun, as Brady noted in the comments section:
"JK. Good to have you back, bud."
Anybody who follows Edelman knew that the Patriots wideout was going to respond:
Brady gave New England a 14-3 lead by getting into the end zone on a quarterback sneak on the next play. The Patriots advanced to the AFC Championship Game with a 27-20 victory, giving Edelman at least one more game this season to do some blocking for Brady.
