Tom Brady Calls Out Refs During Thursday Night Football for Soft Roughing the Passer Penalty

Tom Brady calls out officials after roughing the passer penalty during Jaguars-Titans.

The talk around the NFL is in regards to the questionable officiating through the first two weeks of the season. Perhaps the most controversial aspect of the current NFL referees is the over-abundance of roughing the passer penalties.

During the second quarter of Thursday night's game between the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars, Titans linebacker Kamalei Correa was called for a highly questionable roughing the passer penalty on quarterback Gardner Minshew II.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, a huge fan of the game of football, happened to be tuning into the AFC South matchup, and tweeted his displeasure for the over abundance of penalties.

Just as Brady pleaded for a decrease of yellow flags, they continued to fly onto the gridiron. In the span of seven minutes, Brady couldn't take it anymore let his millions of followers know that he refuses to watch any further.

Either one of his children hijacked his phone and Twitter account, or this is Brady's genuine feelings.

The six-time Super Bowl champion is like every NFL fan, and just wants the excessive penalty calls by on-field officials to stop.
