Tom Brady has legendary reply to Tyreek Hill's Chiefs dynasty comments

Tom Brady has legendary reply to Tyreek Hill's Chiefs dynasty comments

Tom Brady joined Twitter in March of 2019 and he's fired off some pretty good tweets, but his latest one Friday afternoon was a home run.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill went on ESPN's "First Take" show Thursday and talked about his team creating a dynasty. The Chiefs are the defending champs and the future for the franchise is certainly bright after quarterback Patrick Mahomes signed a record-breaking contract extension earlier this month.

Hill noted the Chiefs are chasing Michael Jordan, and that they should go for seven rings to eclipse the six NBA titles that MJ won with the Chicago Bulls.

He forgot about the GOAT in his own sport!

Hill didn't mention Tom Brady, who's already tied Jordan with six championships, all coming with the New England Patriots. Brady is literally aiming for his seventh ring entering the 2020 season -- his first with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers  -- and he reminded Hill about that fact with this awesome tweet:

Well played, TB12.

Hill should know all about Brady's six Super Bowl victories -- the most by any one player in league history. After all, Brady and the Patriots beat Hill's Chiefs in the 2018 AFC Championship Game on the way to New England's sixth Super Bowl title.

The rivarly between Brady and the Chiefs is a pretty good one, and if it continues in the 2020 season, it would have to come in Super Bowl LV. Wouldn't that be awesome?

Gilmore is one of a handful of players to earn a perfect 99 rating in 'Madden NFL 21,' a reminder that not only is he the best at his position but one of the top players in the entire NFL. Gilmore's overall 99 rating includes a 99 rating for awareness, plus both press and man coverage,

Not only is the recognition a special honor, but Gilmore found about his 99 Club membership thanks to a special surprise pulled off by his wife Gabrielle and daughter Gisele, who surprised him as he returned home, presenting him with a gift package from EA Sports including a 99 gold chain and a plaque.

"That's almost 100," Gilmore's son Sebastian said in the video which you can see below.

Not one; not two; not three...

Patrick Mahomes guided the Kansas City Chiefs to a Super Bowl title in just his third NFL season and was rewarded this offseason with the richest contract in North American sports, a 10-year deal worth a total of more than $500 million.

The Chiefs quarterback has lofty goals for those next 10 years -- one of which includes catching the GOAT.

During an interview with ESPN over the weekend from the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament, Mahomes admitted he has his sights set on matching Tom Brady's six Super Bowl championships with the New England Patriots, the most of any player in NFL history.

“I don’t know if there is a number," Mahomes told ESPN's Nicole Briscoe. "Obviously, you try and chase greatness and Tom has six. I'm going to try and do whatever I can to get to that number."

"I understand how hard that is, how it was a one-of-a-kind thing for Tom to be able to get to nine Super Bowls and win six of them. I'm just going to go about the process every single day of trying to make myself better and do whatever I can to make the Kansas City Chiefs better."

The 24-year-old Mahomes technically is on pace with Brady: The current Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB won his first title with New England at age 24. That said, Brady didn't win his sixth championship until his 19th NFL season at age 41, and that was while playing for the greatest coach in NFL history on arguably the greatest modern dynasty in professional sports.

Mahomes might as well set lofty goals, though: He's already won NFL MVP and Super Bowl MVP awards and is the league's best quarterback on a Chiefs team returning much of its Super Bowl roster.

Mahomes has a very long way to go to reach Brady's level of success, but his comments are another reminder that the ex-Patriots QB has set the standard for greatness.
