Tom Brady Hits New Low With Defeat in San Francisco

When you consider just how consistent Tom Brady’s lengthy NFL career has been, and it has been remarkably successful, it’s no surprise to see just how unhappy and unaccepting he is of defeat.

A run of three wins from four had helped the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, to some extent, paper over the cracks of a very poor start to the season, but their crushing loss to the San Francisco 49ers has hit them hard, and 45-year-old Brady in particular, is struggling to come to terms with the situation he finds himself in.

This is Brady’s 24th season in the NFL, and he’s been around.

There are many NFL fans, and indeed pundits, who are not too keen on the veteran quarterback, and indeed he features on this list of 100 most egregious disgraces in NFL history (with good reason), but even the most ardent critic of the former New England Patriots man would have to concede that he is a legend of the game.

However, there is every chance that in 2022 he could experience something he’s not encountered in his entire career—a losing season.

The defeat to the 49ers leaves the Bucs at 6-7, and by rights, that should mean they are struggling to make the post-season, but in a hugely underperforming NFC South, it’s enough to top the division. They remain one game ahead of the Carolina Panthers and the Atlanta Falcons and need to get back to winning ways to ensure they don’t miss out.

As for Brady, well, he didn’t take the loss in San Francisco very well at all. He was ready for reporters after the defeat, starting with this opening gambit;

“I’m sure you guys got as many fun questions as I got answers.”

Weirdly one question related to Brady’s choice not to have a post-game shower, to which he curtly responded;

“Some things I don’t give a f— about, at this point,” before adding;

“F— that. I’m going home.”

Of course, California is where Brady grew up, and the game offered the chance for many of his family to come and watch him in action;

“I love having everyone here, and it’s nice for my family to come, and I think they had a lot of people from the neighborhood come,”

“That’s not going to change the outcome of the game, unfortunately, just because you’ve got a cheering section.”

“I wish we could have done a lot better job.”

Brady put in a rare poor show, throwing two interceptions, and only managed to put up a score late on when Tampa Bay was already 35-0 down. As for what the Buccaneers need to do to get their season back on track, the seven-time Super Bowl winner was as direct as ever;

“I think everyone’s gotta — it’s easy to say — everyone’s got to just play better,”

Next up for Tampa Bay come last year’s Super Bowl losers, the Cincinnati Bengals, who are 9-4 and will offer Brady and his teammates a stern test at the Raymond James Stadium.
