Tom Brady is not just the greatest quarterback to ever grace the gridiron, he also may go down as one of the all-time great tweeters when all is said and done. On Tuesday he showed once again that you can never count out Touchdown Tom after former Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy recently named him just the sixth toughest quarterback to coach against.

“I’m never putting Tom Brady ahead of Peyton Manning, so the best he can be is two. The highest he can ever get is two,” said Dungy. “Who I put ahead of Tom Brady: Aaron Rodgers, John Elway, Steve Young, guys who could move. Not to say Tom wasn’t great — he is great — but that extra dimension meant something to me. That’s why I would only put him at six.”

The quarterback in question responded on Twitter by going after Dungy’s former team, which famously hung a “2014 AFC Finalist” banner after its championship loss that year against Brady and the New England Patriots. While not necessarily an on-point answer given that Dungy was no longer the Colts’ coach at the time, the response was still hilarious either way.
