Tom Brady Is Getting Crushed For What He Did After Super Bowl

Brady didn't make any extra fans last night.

Last night Tom Brady and the Patriots fell at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles. It was the team's fifth Super Bowl loss in franchise history -- tied with the Denver Broncos for the most Super Bowl losses of any team.

Now, it's important to note Brady has only accounted for three of those losses. Meanwhile, he's won five Super Bowls during his time in New England.

Just days after winning the NFL's MVP award, Brady threw for over 500 yards and three touchdowns. He was outdueled by former backup quarterback turned playoff star Nick Foles and the Eagles run game.

With just under a minute left in the game, down 41-33, it looked like Brady might be poised for another epic comeback. However, the Eagles defense came up with a much-needed stop on a Hail May heave.

After the game was over, Brady allegedly ran off the field without congratulating his opponent's quarterback. The move is customary after the game, but Brady bucked the trend and instead ran to the Patriots locker room.

It's important to note Foles may have been preoccupied with a postgame interview. Brady reportedly stuck around to congratulate two Eagles' players, but not Foles -- regardless, fans weren't happy.

Losing the Super Bowl sucks -- no matter how many Brady wins, he'll still think about the losses. But did he show poor sportsmanship after the loss?

Should quarterbacks need to congratulate their opponents in the first place?
