There was great excitement ahead of 43-year-old Tom Brady’s first game for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last weekend. The same could not be said after the game ended, though. The Drew Brees-led New Orleans Saints condemned Tom Brady and the Bucs to a 34-23 defeat on Sunday.

Although Brady performed to his usual high standards, it was not enough to carry his team to glory. The three-time NFL MVP completed 23 of his 36 passes and threw for 239 yards. Besides that, Brady threw two interceptions and a pick-six midway through the game.

It was obvious that the old warhorse still needs to develop an understanding with his teammates. But a certain Tampa Bay star feels that TB12 will bounce back in Week Two.

Chris Godwin and Tom Brady to build on their chemistry

Buccaneers wide receiver, Chris Godwin, addressed the press ahead of this week’s game against Carolina Panthers. Here’s what the young wideout said in relation to the veteran quarterback.

“We understand the type of player that [Tom] is, and like you said, him coming up here just raising the standard, we all understand what we have to be better at collectively – individually and collectively.

“So we’re going to take all that in stride. We know he’s going to be better. I’m going to be better, Mike’s going to be better. We’ll all be better moving forward because we’re going to learn from these mistakes and, we’re going to get better. Our chemistry is going to improve.

“We’re going to just keep growing as a team. We have a lot of room to grow and we’re going to keep doing it,” Godwin said at a recent press meet.

Brady and his teammates don’t have time for rest as they take on Teddy Bridgewater’s Carolina Panthers in Week Two. Coach Bruce Arians will be hoping that his star-studded cast finds their rhythm in the coming days before hosting their NFC South opponents.

Brady, in particular, seemed dissatisfied after Sunday’s loss to the Saints. Let’s hope he can use that disappointment to channel his inner ‘comeback kid’ and pull off a win on Sunday.
