The Bears beat the Bucs on Thursday Night Football in Week 5, marking another win for Eagles legend Nick Foles over Eagles supervillain Tom Brady. It was a good night for the good guys.
And it was another chapter in the long-running, surprisingly contentious history between the two.
Because Brady once again refused to shake Foles' hand after he lost to a Foles-led team.
Foles was left looking around to shake Brady's hand, as quarterbacks across the league do after games, and as Brady does constantly with opposing quarterbacks:
The handshake snub has roots in Brady avoiding a Foles handshake after Super Bowl LII, leading some to think Brady has a vendetta against Foles for the upset Super Bowl victory in what Brady felt would be yet another championship year.
On Thursday, after Brady shook hands with Aaron Rodgers following a Tampa Bay win in Week 6, the legendary QB was asked about his apparent ducking of Foles. Here, from three angles, was his very weak answer:
Okay, Tom. Whatever you say.
Not shaking Foles' hand after the Super Bowl was one thing. I still didn't like it, but you're in a particularly emotional game - back and forth, down to the literal last throw from Brady's hand - and, after taking the L, you just wanted to get off that dang field. It's lame, but I guess it's fair.
But a second time? After folks made sure you knew you snubbed Foles? It's a bad look, Tom!
These answers aren't good enough. I think Brady is angry that Foles routinely gets the better of him.
And I love it.
