He's no Tom Brady: Patriots subtly troll Aaron Rodgers over beer chug

He's no Tom Brady: Patriots subtly troll Aaron Rodgers over beer chug

David Bakhtiari was just trying to have some fun with his quarterback.

The Green Bay Packers offensive lineman roped Aaron Rodgers into a beer-chugging contest Thursday night at the Milwaukee Bucks' playoff game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

To say Rodgers lost would be putting it kindly.

In Rodgers' defense, this was an unfair fight. Bakhtiari can put down beers like glasses of water. But as many on Twitter pointed out, there's another high-profile quarterback who recently chugged a beer in public ... with much more success.

The New England Patriots helpfully pointed their Twitter followers to this moment Friday.

Yes, that's QB Tom Brady during a 2018 appearance on "The Stephen Colbert Show" slugging a beer in less time than he stands in the pocket.

Here's a side-by-side of Brady vs. Rodgers, beer-chugging edition:

We're pretty sure this settles the "best NFL quarterback" debate once and for all.

For his part, Rodgers suggested he's just not a beer-chugging guy after the video went viral.

But excuses won't win you drinking contests ... or six Super Bowl titles.

Julian Edelman laughs it up with Stephen Colbert in 'Late Show' appearance

Julian Edelman laughs it up with Stephen Colbert in 'Late Show' appearance

Julian Edelman visited the "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on Tuesday night and the Super Bowl MVP brought his three Super Bowl rings with him.

As Colbert handled the jewelry, he noted the size and heft of the rings and joked, "Do you need to go to the gym or do you just curl with these?"

The Patriots wide receiver was promoting his Showtime documentary, "100%: Julian Edelman" and when asked which ring was his favorite, he borrowed a line from his quarterback, and answers, as Tom Brady usually does, "the next one."

There was no beer-chugging (although we've seen that Edelman knows his way around thator strawberry-eating as in Brady's "Late Show" appearance, but Edelman also discussed meeting Brady as a rookie in 2009, and borrowing another Brady phrase, talked about how multi-functional the words "Let's Go!' have become for him and his teammates.

A discussion of Edelman's Jewish faith ended with him accepting a special gift signifying that from Colbert, a "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" kippa, the traditional Jewish headwear.
