Willie McGinest is a name die-hard New England Patriots fans will never forget. The fourth overall pick in the 1994 NFL Draft, he was a key part of the emergence of the Patriots' dynasty in the early 2000's.

His on-field savvy, though, clearly doesn't carry over to new technology.

Is Tom Brady the greatest of all time — the GOAT? It depends on who you ask, but it's safe to say most members of the Patriots dynasty certainly think so.

Only, instead of referring to Brady as the GOAT with goat emojis, McGinest seemed to either be nonsensically calling Tom Terrific a Ram, or even accidentally be insulting him by calling him a sheep.

Naturally, a high-profile personality like McGinest can't slip up in the NFL's Instagram comment section without hearing about it, and fans made sure that's a mistake he won't make twice.

As the Patriots' all-time playoff leader in sacks (16.0 — twice as many as anyone else), McGinest is going to have to do a lot more than accidentally call Tom Brady a sheep before anyone in Boston has anything but kind words for him.
