Tom Brady’s journey with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has been a mixed bag of results thus far. The former New England Patriots man started his 2020 NFL campaign with a disappointing loss to fellow NFC South rivals, New Orleans Saints. But Tom Brady and the Bucs went on a three-game winning streak after that.
Their impressive run came to a halt in Week Five as the Buccaneers suffered a 20-19 loss to Matt Nagy’s Chicago Bears. Tom Brady was at the center of debates following the loss.
Tom Brady was left fuming during Sunday’s narrow loss to the Nick Foles-led Chicago Bears. In the above video, the six-time Super Bowl winner can be seen lashing out at teammates after reportedly not being told that it was fourth down and not third in the fourth quarter.
Critics pointed out that Brady could have refrained from doing so while others said that it just showed his ‘passion’ for the game. Regardless, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Head Coach, Bruce Arians, has no qualms regarding Brady’s recent outburst.
“That’s just being yourself. I don’t have any problem with it. At least I don’t have to go back there and cuss them out. They’ve already got an earful by the time I get over there.”
“Tom has got to be Tom. I’m not going to ask him to be somebody different. He does a good job of patting [teammates] on the back, too. He might explode but he’s going to go down there and pat them on the back and get them going,” Arians said via Joebucsfan.
The Buccaneers are on a 3-2 record in the NFL at the moment. Brady and Co. will be disappointed with Sunday’s loss to the Bears. However, they cannot spend too much time sulking about that loss as they head into Week Six of the season.
‘Tampa Brady’ will take on the Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers over the weekend. The Packers are undefeated after four games and have enjoyed enough time to rest in Week Five and will go out guns blazing in Week Six.
