Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady always calls it as he sees it. He had a bold take on the quality of the current game in the NFL.
Tom Brady obviously has a lot on his plate right now. Between a torrent of divorce rumors off the field and dealing with a plethora of issues on the field, such as wide receiver injuries and terrible play calling, the guy is probably at his whit’s end.
And, while not many could say they wish they were Brady at this current juncture, all of us have gotten to witness a more unhinged side of Brady as result which has certainly been refreshing given how composed he has been throughout his career.
So, when asked about the number of 2-2 teams this season, the Bucs included, he responded by saying, “there’s a lot of bad football from what I watch.”
While some may take this as an insult to other 2-2 teams around the league, Brady has never been one to shy away from criticizing his own teams and performance, so it’s likely he was also referring to the Bucs.
And, to be fair to Brady, he is very correct. For anyone who had the misfortune of sitting through the Thursday Night football game between the Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts, it was by all accounts, “bad football.”
And, there has been a number of other games this season, even by solid teams, that have seen more punting, penalties and sloppy play than touchdowns and high-level defense.
The Bucs have certainly turned in inconsistent performances so far this season. While their defense looked solid the first three games, they were also completely unable to score touchdowns. It wasn’t until the Bucs’ week four game against the Kansas City Chiefs that the offense finally showed up, but unfortunately the defense never did.
Brady seems to be pretty fired up after last week’s loss and everything else going on in his life. Bucs fans can only hope he take all that negative energy and translate it into a great performance in week five against the Atlanta Falcons today.
