So it’s safe to say that the quarterback knows a thing or two about winning back-to-back Super Bowls. Brady earlier outlined how complacency and fatigue can play a big role in hurting the side’s ambitions for the upcoming season. 

And when he found some of his teammates slacking at training, he wasn’t having any of it. 

Tom Brady flips out at training camp

According to reports from the Tampa Bay training camp, Tom Brady was furious when a two-minute drill led to a sack and many incompletions. The quarterback who never takes it easy was understandably angry and some of it was even vented out at his teammates.

“Gotta make a fu**ing play when you’re tired, fellas!” Brady reportedly said slamming his helmet on the ground. 

With the defense chewing up Brady and his wide receivers failing to hit the correct routes, Brady later punted the ball 40 yards out in frustration.

And when the league’s winningest player has a thing or two to say about one’s performance, they must listen. Teams will be even warier of the Buccaneers given that they enter as the defending champs.

Extra film hours, special tactics and several other tricks will be tried out to stop the Bucs from winning. And if they don’t put in the hard work, the image of Brady being sacked at training camp will replicate itself on game day as well.
