tom brady The Tampa Bay Buccaneers isn’t about to make excuses for some blunders in Sunday’s overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns that dropped the team below .500.
Brady was 29-for-43 with 246 passing yards and two touchdown passes—one to Chris Godwin and the other to Ko Kift. They had a chance to give the Buccaneers the lead or win in overtime, but the team failed to score any points. All it took was a long Nick Chubb run to help set up the game-winning score.
in the latest episode of “lets go!” podcast On Monday, Brady told veteran sportscaster Jim Gray that he hasn’t been able to sleep well since the loss.
Brady said, “Obviously it’s been a long night. I haven’t slept very well, as you can only imagine.” “And I think one of the important things we talked about today was just this 24-hour rule in sports – when things don’t go your way and you don’t win the game, deal with it for 24 hours and then Go ahead.
“I’m just about to get to that 24-hour mark and after that I start thinking about what this week is going to bring. It was a tough loss for our team. We did a lot of good things and obviously But there was a lot about the things that we did poorly. And eventually it leads to a very tough road loss. No one can afford road loss at this time of the year. We definitely Can’t. But we’ll keep fighting our tail off like we all have weather.”
Brady and Gray talked about the lack of consistency with the offense. While the defense is top 10 in points and yards allowed, the offense is only 27th in points gained and 18th in yards.
Brady said, “Well, I think it’s a continuation of, you know, so many positive plays and then undone by untimely mistakes made by our team. And it’s not a player, it’s not a situation.” ” “Football is the ultimate team sport and I’ve always believed as a leader you always take the blame and you always give the credit. And that’s it, I always feel like that because that’s really what leadership is all about. I Need to do better.
“I had a chance to hit the mic [Evans] Down the sideline in overtime to win the game and I didn’t get it done. … You can succumb to the noise outside and everyone is telling you, ‘Oh, it’s not your fault, it’s someone else’s fault.’ I think BS When you lose it’s your fault and when you lose you take it personally. And one should not sleep at night after losing. And you should only think what you should do to help the team more. And after thinking about this, I lay in bed at night. It’s a tough position to be in, a losing record, but it’s our reality and we’ve done nothing to earn more than this. And if you want to win the game, if you want to win a fight, if you want to win a golf match, if you want to win your monopoly [game], you have to earn it. No one will hand it over to you. You have to go out there every day and try to earn it through a process of improvement.”
Asked if everyone shared equal responsibility in the loss, Brady was “absolutely” certain that his teammates felt the same way as him.
