Tom Brady’s camp suffered another blow in the ongoing Deflategate saga, and his competitors made sure to rub it in Wednesday.
Brady’s latest appeal of his four-game suspension was denied by the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals, meaning the New England Patriots quarterback will miss the first four games of the 2016 NFL season unless he successfully takes his case to the Supreme Court.
The ruling sent Twitter into a frenzy, and the Buffalo Bills decided to join the fun. Here’s what New England’s AFC East rival, which plays the Patriots in Week 4, tweeted shortly after the court’s decision came down.
Coincidence? We think not, especially since Buffalo’s official account sent a similarly well-timed tweet back in April after the Court of Appeals reinstated Brady’s four-game ban.
The Bills clearly are excited about the prospects of facing a Brady-less Patriots squad, but backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo might have something to say about that. Buffalo also has lost 14 of its last 15 games in Foxboro, its only win coming in Week 17 of the 2014 season when New England rested many of its starters.
Can the regular season just start already?
