Props to Colin Cowherd for asking Roger Goodell the question everyone's thinking -- if Tom Brady wins the Super Bowl, will it be awkward handing him the Lombardi Trophy???
Of course, Goodell waged the DeflateGate war against Brady and ultimately suspended him for 4 games this season ... you can imagine how Brady feels about the situation.
But Goodell had nothing but praise for Tom on "The Herd Live" on FS1 Wednesday -- saying Brady is "one of the all-time greats" and a "surefire Hall of Famer."
So, possible awkwardness? As Goodell put it, "Not for a second."
We'll see ... unless the Falcons can help it.
