Shannon Sharpe rips Tom Brady for saying he stayed up all night watching film

On Monday morning's Mut & Callahan show, Tom Brady said that he'd stayed up all night watching film on the Los Angeles Chargers in anticipation of their divisional matchup this Sunday. 

Well, those comments upset Shannon Sharpe, who tore into the star quarterback on Tuesday morning's "Undisputed." 

"Now all of a sudden this is the most important week for Tom Brady?" asked Sharpe. "It's not important for Drew Brees or Patrick Mahomes? So now, only Tom Brady is this week important for? Oh, he's studying film. If you don't mind me asking, what was Drew Brees doing? Tom Brady wants us to believe he's the only one that studies film. 

"You think he watch more film than Peyton Manning? But Peyton Manning wasn't out there telling you he watches film or stayed up all night studying. He still has more touchdowns than Tom Brady." 

Sharpe loves to bring up Manning when talking about Brady. But, when faced with the question from co-host Skip Bayless of who has more rings, Sharpe stopped referencing the star of the most recent Nationwide commercial. 

"Of course it's the playoffs," said Sharpe. "It's a one-game season. It's the biggest game of the year for everybody. Sorry, Tom. Newsflash: not just you. You're not the only one in the playoffs. You're not the only one in the playoffs. You're not the only one who this game matters too. You're not the only one studying." 

Sharpe retracted his tone for a brief moment and then went back to hating on the five-time Super Bowl champion. 

"Look, Tom Brady is great," said Sharpe. "He's historically great, he's pantheon great, he's transcendently great! But Tom Brady would have you believe he does things when it comes to studying and preparing that no other quarterback in the history of the league has done. That's simply not true.

"It's hard for me to believe that Drew Brees is not studying. It's hard for me to believe that Patrick Mahomes and Andrew Luck are not studying. Now these other guys couldn't have been studying because they were playing. But I can assure you when Nick Foles got on the plane, they had already uploaded New Orleans cut-ups to his device. I can assure you of that."
