As soon as the comment circulated everywhere in the NFL universe, Ryan opened up by mentioning that it was him the QB referred to.
He added as they defeated Brady’s team thrice on the field, the MVP couldn’t digest the humiliation of failures and unreasonably grew rage over him and his team, Miami Dolphins back then.
