Tom Brady Posts About Quality of Thursday Night Football Game

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady lives for football. Just not tonight’s game.

The six-time Super Bowl champion quarterback criticized the amount of referee involvement in the matchup between the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Brady seven minutes later, had had enough.

Play-by-play broadcaster for the game Joe Buck remarked about the difficulty to be a referee in a football game with so many rules and regulations.

“It has become infinitely harder to officiate the game,” Buck said to Troy Aikman and Mike Pereira in the booth. “There’s a lot dumped on these officials so while we talk about it and get frustrated of what’s going on, they are directed to do a lot of this.”

Pereira the rules analyst came back at Buck with a mind boggling stat about holding penalties.

“That’s the hard thing about this, holding is up 64 percent going into the third week of the season,” Pereira said. “Most of the complaints about holding come from coaches so the question has to be are the officials bad or are they better because they are seeing more of this. But this is really hurting the game.”

In the first half alone, there were 15 penalties called in Thursday Night Football.

Brady and the Patriots play the New York Jets on Sunday at 1 p.m.
