Super Bowl champion Sean O’Hara raised eyebrows Wednesday when he compared the significance of Tom Brady’s retirement to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
O’Hara, an NFL Network analyst, talked about Brady “retiring for good” after 23 seasons in the NFL and seven Super Bowl titles. He made awkward remarks on “Good Morning Football”.
“This is a huge moment, not just for Tom Brady, not just for the NFL, but for all of us,” he said.
“People remember where they were when JFK was assassinated. They remember where they were on 9/11.”

The former New York Giants lineman has one on Brady. He was a member of the Super Bowl XLII Giants team that upset the New England Patriots 17–14 in 2008.
