WTTG’s Maureen Umeh Says Redskins Could Have Beaten Patriots If Tom Brady ‘Fell Out Dead’

Maureen Umeh, an anchor at Fox owned-and-operated WTTG in Washington, DC, said this weekend that the only way for the Redskins to beat the New England Patriots in their Sunday NFL matchup was if Patriots quarterback Tom Brady “fell out dead” (video above).

The comment itself was followed up with a very quick “just kidding” from Umeh, but when sports director Dave Feldman jumped in to clarify, the exchange started to get awkward.

“Wouldn’t it be better if he was just injured, but not dead?” Feldman asked.

Okay,” Umeh responded. “Look, sometimes we have a slip of the tongue.”

Boston ABC-affiliate WCVB has an article about Umeh’s comment posted on the station’s website.
