Fox Sports personality Colin Cowherd doesn't think elite NFL quarterbacks should talk about UFOs, which means he might not consider Tom Brady one of the best players of all time anymore. 

Cowherd dedicated a part of his show Thursday to mocking a tweet by Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield, who posted that he and his wife spotted a UFO over Lake Travis in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday night.

So, Baker Mayfield saw a UFO... "Joe Montana, Troy Aikman, Terry Bradshaw & Tom Brady have never seen aliens. I would prefer my guys don't talk about it." — @ColinCowherd https://t.co/B31yHxJvxP

"The ability to see UFOs in the offseason is nowhere near my top ten qualifications," Cowherd said. "Joe Montana, Troy Aikman, Terry Bradshaw and Tom Brady have never seen aliens. I would prefer my guys don't talk about it."

Brady fired back with his own UFO questions.

Touché, @TomBrady. https://t.co/gYoMln0aok

To be clear, Mayfield didn't say he saw aliens. He said he spotted an unidentified flying object, the very type of vehicles the United States has long monitored, as evidenced by the declassifcation of numerous documents by the Central Intelligence Agency in January.  

Brady is the one who took things to the next level by bringing up aliens—and Mayfield certainly took notice:

Of course, Brady has continued to make history as he ages:

On second thought, it might actually explain a lot.
