Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are some of the most accurate quarterbacks in the league, and the two decided to show that off in training camp.
Prior to the start of training camp, Tom Brady was feeling bored (as the NFL GOAT might when there’s no football to be played), and he put out this video on his social media to show just how hyped he was for the start of training camp:
Training camp starts this week. I’m looking forward to having some actual receivers again… pic.twitter.com/PDl1puHr46

However, NFL fans were very quickly able to point out the video was a fake and that CGI and video editing were able to make it look like Brady was hitting these throws, something you can read about here.
So, when Aaron Rodgers dropped some absolute dimes in training camp, NFL fans reacted by joking about Brady’s CGI team not being able to one up him.
Aaron Rodgers And Tom Brady Engage In Unofficial Throwing Battle In Training Camp
Training camp usually brings a lot of excitement to NFL fans. For one, it’s the first time people are seeing some real football actions after nearly six months.
Secondly, training camp always gives superstars to showcase their talents in often some very jaw dropping ways. You’ll see highlights of receivers making crazy one handed throws or quarterbacks delivering throws that seem impossible to make.
Rodgers and Brady were no different, and fans had them pegged against each other in a ‘throwing competition’ of sorts. It started with this beauty of a pass by Rodgers:

Brady then had some very impressive throws of his own, but they definitely weren’t up to the mark of Rodgers’ absolutely mind boggling pass.

That led fans to create this edit on YouTube with the joke about Brady’s CGI team not being up to the mark of Rodgers’ ridiculous arm.
This unofficial training camp throwing battle was incredibly entertaining to watch, and we’re sure to see more highlight throws from both players as the NFL season progresses.
