Out of frustration and disappointment, Burr took a dig at Brady’s age and the mishap the fans witnessed while the Patriots were executing the trick play that night. “You know what was funny, on that play you actually saw his age,” Burr said on the show. “When he stands in the pocket, he looks 25. The second he starts running it’s like ‘dude, I could D this guy up. Like did you see last year, when he threw that pick-six? When he dove to tackle that guy, it looked like somebody threw a dead body out of a car.” he added to his rants.

It was indeed a close shot after the wide receiver Danny Amendola executed the brilliant pass on a second-quarter trick play. However, Brady couldn’t reach the ball, nor did he dive. It just passed through the tip of his fingers, disappointing many Patriots fans present on and off the stadium.

Burr’s conversation with O’Brien went even more hilarious after he took a shot at the NBC commentator, Cris Collinsworth. “And then they had that trick play with Nick Foles, and Collinsworth just kept talking… ‘that might have been the most unbelievable trick play I’ve ever…!” Burr said.

“The Patriots just ran that play! They’re acting as they’ve never seen it before.” he quoted hilariously. The 53-year-old also explained how he reacted to the loss by staying at home & far away from social media attention. He said he would close his curtains and won’t smile coming out the next day on TV. The disappointment was visible on his face. However, in the end, it’s all about playing the game.
