Tom Brady’s dad wants people to stop “trying to pile on Peyton Manning,’’ according to The Boston Globe.

Tom Brady Sr. told the Globe that he hopes people won’t jump to conclusions about the investigation into the Denver Broncos quarterback’s alleged HGH use, like he says they did about his son’s alleged role in the Deflategate scandal.

“Until there is hard evidence don’t do to Peyton what they did to Tommy last year, pile on without proof and evidence. It’s unjustified,’’ he told the Globe.

Brady Sr. said the “nonsense’’ surrounding the Deflategate saga not only affected Brady, but their entire family.

“When your kid suffers you suffer with your kid, when your kid breaks his leg, you hurt, when your kid is getting destroyed because he is a liar and a cheat ostensibly, it hurts,’’ he told the Globe.

“My wife and I have decided as much as it affected us last year, we’re not going to let it affect us moving forward,’’ Brady Sr. added.
