Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are two of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. However, the 2022 season has been a massive struggle for both of them. Brady’s Bucs and Rodgers’ Packers are both facing records they couldn’t have previously predicted. Brady is a seven-time Super Bowl champion and three-time MVP. Rodgers is a one-time Super Bowl champ and four-time MVP. However, that being said when they struggle on the football field, it typically goes viral. When Aaron Rodgers yells or screams on the sideline, it is often captured by social media and spread everywhere. For years it has seemed that Tom Brady gets a pass when he does something similar. Not any longer. Tom Brady is receiving the full Aaron Rodgers treatment this season.
Tom Brady Is Now Receiving The Aaron Rodgers Treatment
Brady is no longer getting a pass when it comes to his on-field antics when upset about a play. Today that was on full display as he was upset prior to halftime:

The reactions of fans are no longer making excuses for him. They are ridiculing or enjoying the emotion Tom Brady is showing. This is something that Aaron Rodgers has dealt with for years. Here are some reactions today:
Tommy Temper Tantrum. Of course it won't be his fault 28 – 0 at half https://t.co/Lu2pFWZAG4

Greatest Tantrums of All Time! Get in Loser You’re going Losing! Hubris, Ego, Greed, Arrogance, Cheater. That’s the legacy. https://t.co/m8pqiQsuWZ

I get so tired of his immature tantrums and fits. I bet Gisele is glad she doesn’t have to watch this anymore. Grow up little boy. Football shouldn’t be more valuable than your marriage but too late you threw that away @undisputed @WEEI @Fred_Kirsch @TomBrady https://t.co/2kxLfpbJlT

Those were just a few of the thousands of reactions on twitter today after Brady blew up. This isn’t even close to the first time this has happened this year either. Tom Brady has had multiple instances this year of yelling or “throwing a tantrum” mid-game. Each time lately seems to be met with ridicule and hate from the general public. This is something Aaron Rodgers dealt with for years. Rodgers has been called out for throwing tantrums of his own, but the reactions have been far worse for him. That is until recently.
