Max Kellerman Owns His Brady Mistake In Best Way Possible

If you're wrong, you have to own it. You had a take or an opinion, but it didn't work out. So own it.

Way too many people nowadays like to run from their statements. Max Kellerman is not one of those people, or at least he wasn't on Sunday, following the NFC Championship Game. Not only did he own his bad take, he roasted himself for it.

During a segment on ESPN's First Take back in 2016, Kellerman made an interesting comment about Tom Brady. He said that the then New England Patriot would "fall off a cliff" soon, and his time as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL was over.

We have now seen five seasons from Brady since that comment. The results? Well, you be the judge.

I'd say that's quite the resume, right? So does Kellerman, which is why he took to Twitter following the news that Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would be appearing in Super Bowl LV. His tweet read "Tom Brady has had a full Hall of Fame career... in the time SINCE I made the cliff prediction."

The self-own is incredible. Kellerman could not have been more wrong, but he could not have owned it anymore. I don't agree with everything this man say, but it's hard not to respect him for this move.

Now, if we could just get some of these other people to admit a few terrible sports takes this year...
