Assuming you haven’t been living under a rock, you’ve read the quote from Jamaal Williams totally owning Tom Brady, saying “my quarterback knows what fourth down is,” during The Jamaal Williams Show on Tuesday.
Jacob: Whose quarterback is better, yours or Ronald Jones?
Jamaal Williams: Look, I’m pretty sure MY quarterback knows what 4th down is

That’s a devastating blow by Jamaal. Obviously he’s not picking Brady, but to go at him the way he did? Insanity. That man has a family!
On a side note, if Williams played on the defensive side of the ball, does he say that? I mean, what if Ha Ha Clinton-Dix or Davon House were smack talking the GOAT a few years back? Brady would’ve lit them up for 400 yards.
However, it is 2020 Tom Brady in an offense that isn’t coached by Bill Belichick, so anything’s possible. Plus, the Packers seem to have a somewhat competent defensive backfield through four games, so let’s not overthink this.
Back to the video, Jacob has some kahunas for asking that question in the first place. I mean, I’m glad he stopped laughing as loudly as he was so Jamaal could speak, but you’re making a 25-year-old guy openly disrespect the only quarterback that’s been in the league practically his entire life. While he’s entirely right in his answer, you know how people on the internet react to Tom Brady jokes. Now we’re talking about a Tom Brady joke BY an upcoming opponent?
Twitter is the explosion behind Jamaal Williams-Jackman on Thursday, after ESPN, NFL Network, Bleacher Report, and more tweeted Jamaal’s quote. Countless of tweets, comments, retweets, personal jabs, and a whole lot more as ‘Jamaal Williams’ was trending in Wisconsin on a day the Packers don’t have a game.

I love that Justin, like a lot of fans do, tagged the athlete in his response. I get the frustration, but calling a professional athlete a, “bum ass” on Twitter probably doesn’t make you look cool. Sorry, dude.
The criticism of Jamaal, Rodgers, and Brady is all fair, right? When all else fails, go to the “Brady has more rings than x” argument, because it totally wins you every argument.
What kind of a loser do you have to be to defend Brady forgetting it was fourth down and losing the game? Yes, Brady is a six-time champion, but he looked like a complete moron holding up four fingers with utter confusion last week.
The fact is, Aaron Rodgers would never. Jamaal is entirely right. Rodgers was (allegedly) pilled up on a broken leg a few years ago and still won a game against the Chicago Bears. He even conducted a legendary postgame interview with Michelle Tofoya afterward. Brady, however, didn’t know what down it was and peeled out of the stadium before the game was even over. He had Nick Foles looking like a lost puppy at midfield shaking nobody’s hand.
At the end of the day, this just sparks the fire ahead of Sunday afternoon’s game, which is a big one for both teams. Also, this helps drive attention to The Jamaal Williams Show, which solely exists to raise money for Jamaal’s charity and Christmas toy drive, which you can donate to HERE.
