Getting in a shouting match with Tom Brady tends to blow your cover. In this case, O'Brien was absolutely, 100 percent, unequivocally right in his decision to step up against Brady, who had the audacity to tell Tiquan Underwood (he of 10 career catches) that he should have tried harder to catch an awful pass that never should have been thrown.
