Brett Favre's appearance at the Buccaneers game wearing the shirt was a significant gesture, as it followed his public support of Tom Brady, the longtime quarterback of the New England Patriots who is playing in his first season with Tampa Bay. Favre's public support followed Tampa Bay coach Bruce Arians' negative comments directed towards Brady's after his first week play. The comments from Favre were replayed by countless media, including NBC Sports, which reported:
"One of the most surprising developments from Week One came in the aftermath of the Buccaneers-Saints game, when Tampa Bay coach Bruce Arians publicly called out quarterback Tom Brady, not once but twice. That's something Patriots coach Bill Belichick has never done, to Brady or to any other quarterback."
Favre has a theory: "Maybe they had a mutual truce going into the game, going into the season, something like, 'Hey, I'm going to be hard on you. I want the guys to know we're going to treat you the same even though technically I'm not, so are you OK with it?' If they have that truce, great. If not, I think we are barking up the wrong tree. Dissension could easily enter quickly."
