Kevin Youkilis might be a Cincinnati Bengals fan, but he’s got his brother-in-law’s back.

The seemingly daily trashing of Tom Brady from Max Kellerman took place Tuesday afternoon following the New England Patriots’ loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday. Kellerman, purveyor of the “Tom Brady Cliff” take, said Brady no longer is elite, which shouldn’t be a surprising thought given the source.

Youkilis promptly took Kellerman to task.

Then Youkilis went after a commenter who supported Kellerman.

As you might or might not know, Youkilis is married to Brady’s sister, so there is a bit of a family connection there. However, it doesn’t take a genius/family member to realize that Kellerman has a tendency to, as Youkilis puts it, crave attention.
