Not huge news, and maybe not even threadworthy, but thought I'd share it anyway.

Eli now has a twitter account. Profile:

To paraphrase Jimmy Chitwood, “I don’t know if it’ll make any change, but I figure it’s time for me to start playing social media."


Brady's comment, kind of funny, some will find it douchy but I think he meant it as a compliment.

Lawrence Tynes - who is hilarious on Twitter - has been begging Eli for years to join.

as a 4th quarter QB. It only matters when the chips are on the line. Eli was money in the 4th.

Good hearted humor.

both Peyton and Brady in tomorrow's golf match. Now I wish I were on Twitter. May-be...
I think Brady is in good-natured trash-talk mode  
Leg of Theismann : 5/23/2020 7:26 pm : link
with his golf duel coming up tomorrow. Him and Peyton have been going back and forth with each other. Brady's jokes have had a little more edge to them than we're normally used to (usually he goes out of his way to be as non-controversial as possible, but in recent tweets/statements to Peyton (and now Eli) he's been a little more cavalier in his humor (just as Peyton as been as well). I think it's the competitive nature of these two coming out with the "pressure" of playing a sport they've never played professionally on national TV coming up. It's certainly no douchiness here and not meant to be mean-spirited or negative in any way, I think Brady is just enjoying getting some attention for his wit a little more because he's been brazen with his trash-talking and getting some love for it. Maybe between the Howard Stern show etc. and other things in his old age he's realizing he doesn't have to be 100% a "boy scout", he can be more himself and people will respond well to it.
Hey, Leg of Theisman...
