It is a truth universally acknowledged that an NFL player in possession of social media must be in want of a viral Facebook.
Or something like that.
Some players are better equipped for Internet fame than others. With "Lion King" remakes and A+ trolling of teammates, Tom Brady is among the Facebook elite, according to Rob Gronkowski.
In an interview with SB Nation, Gronk was asked why he thinks TB12 dominates Facebook.
"I don't know! That's a great question! He is off the charts on Facebook," Gronk said. "Every week you see a new post from him. [I'm good, but] Brady destroys Facebook. He's the best Facebooker in the NFL, I think."
Forget the "best quarterback of all time" debate. Brady is leading the pack on the virtual turf. A video of the QB hoisting his family's puppy, Fluffy, while "The Circle of Life" plays in the background received nearly three million views and more than 88,000 likes. Another of Brady donning a turkey costume and surprising his kids in a pile of leaves was viewed more than three million times.
Those numbers don't lie. Brady is the G.O.A.T. on Facebook.
