Tom Brady Reveals the Truth Behind Nick Foles Snub in Week Five

The Tom Brady-led Tampa Bay Buccaneers sit atop the NFC South Division table after 6 weeks. They are on a 4-2 record and look in a good position to make the NFL Playoffs this season. Brady, in particular, has had a memorable start to his tenure in Florida with the Buccaneers.

After an opening day loss, he led the Bucs to 3-straight wins in the league before losing to the Nick Foles-led Chicago Bears by a 20-19 scoreline in Week 5.

Brady faced a lot of heat after he walked off the pitch without shaking hands with counterpart Nick Foles that weekend.

However, the six-time Super Bowl winner jogged towards Aaron Rodgers last weekend after beating the Green Bay Packers by a mammoth 38-10 scoreline. This led to critics claiming that Tom Brady was indeed a ‘sore loser’.

Tom Brady maintains he has great admiration for Nick Foles

After facing a lot of flak on social media in recent weeks, Brady finally gave his perspective behind the whole incident. Here’s what the veteran NFL quarterback said while talking to media personnel earlier this week.

He said, “I didn’t even think about that. I think Nick Foles is a hell of a player and a Super Bowl champion. I don’t know one reason or another why I wouldn’t do that, but I don’t know. Sometimes I’ve run off the field [and] sometimes I haven’t.

“Sometimes if I have a personal relationship like I do with Drew [Brees], Justin [Herbert] and Aaron [Rodgers] over the years –

“I don’t think it’s anything in particular, other than I have great admiration for Nick. He’s a hell of a player and they’re off to a great start,” Brady said via Bucswire.

Bruce Arians’ Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the in-form Las Vegas Raiders in Week 7. The Raiders had a bye in Week 6. Prior to that, Derek Carr helped his team defeat Patrick Mahomes’ Kansas City Chiefs in Week 5.

Jon Gruden’s boys will definitely pose a strong threat to Brady’s Buccaneers at the Allegiant Stadium on Sunday. Let’s hope that ‘Tampa Brady’ remembers to shake Carr’s hand after the game, though.
