Now, one NFL writer is calling out the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, saying he is not “all in” this year with the team or the sport.
NFL Writer Calls Out Tom Brady
“The Bucs can say whatever they want, but their QB isn’t all in,” Florio Tweeted. “And that’s impacting his ability to lead. How can it not? Whenever there are two sets of rules, dysfunction follows.
“The Buccaneers agreed to whatever terms Tom Brady wanted for business reasons, not for football reasons. It’s that simple. Sell the tickets, fill the stadium. We’ll see how full it is on Thursday night,” he continued.
Florio is not the only one to call out Brady for his performance this year. Retired Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger also chimed in on the topic, saying it seems Brady is “checked out.”
Tom Brady’s Frustrations On The Field
Brady has been seen throwing tablets and yelling at his teammates during multiple games over the course of this season thus far.
In a frustrating loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers last week, the NFL star quarterback was caught on camera, yelling at his offensive line. “You’re so much better than the way you’re f***ing playing,” Brady reportedly said in the heated moment, which was caught by FOX’s live broadcast.
Prior to this, in a game against the New Orleans Saints, Brady was seen slamming and breaking one of the team’s tablets — something the quarterback also did in yesterday’s game against the Carolina Panthers.
Tom Brady’s Issues Off The Field
After 13 years of marriage, Brazilian fashion model, Gisele Bündchen, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback are going their separate ways as reports came in that they both hired their own divorce lawyers.
The divorce is very hard on Brady, especially since he is used to winning. “Think about it: Tom has had a very charmed life,” one source admitted. “Things always seem to go his way. He works hard, he’s a good guy, he hasn’t had a lot of things go wrong in his life. This is awful for him. You can tell that this really, really hurts.”
The speculation that the two were in rocky waters first began when Tom Brady unexpectedly took an 11-day break from training camp in August due to “personal reasons.”
After Brady returned to training camp from his 11-day absence, he released a statement saying, “Everyone has different situations they’re dealing with, and we all have unique challenges to our lives. I’m 45 years old, man.”
Many feel Brady’s issues off the field are affecting his performance on the field. It is clear the Bucs are not playing their best football right now as they are currently 3-4, something that is shocking to many NFL fans. This is the only other time Tom Brady has been under .500 since a Week One loss to the Saints in 2020.
Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will face Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens in Thursday Night Football on October 27.
