After a loss, Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady speaks out about the rushing press.
Tom Brady of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers spoke more about Sunday’s heartbreaking loss on Monday than he did during his brief postgame press conference.
When Brady spoke with host Jim Gray on his podcast, Let’s Go!, on Monday, he wasn’t completely over the loss.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion joked that the podcast should be moved to Friday because “Mondays after losses are a pain.”
On the podcast, Brady said, “I think that’s a real challenge for me, especially as I’ve gotten older because the expectations are so high.”
“It’s a relief when you win, and it’s a real disappointment when you lose,” he says.
Brady was chastised for holding a one-minute, 43-second press conference on Sunday.
From the number of words he spoke to the temperature he was dressed for, NBC Sports Washington dug into the numbers of his brief appearance.

“However, it’s difficult when you’re in the middle of a battle.”

With two interceptions in the first quarter, Brady’s situation appeared to be hopeless.
Aside from that, the Bucs had to punt twice and kick two field goals before Brady could get them in the end zone.
That didn’t happen until the third quarter, when Cameron Brate scored a 6-yard touchdown.
It’s a three-point game now, thanks to Tom Brady and Cameron Brate.

“In the second half, we played a little better — not a lot better,” Brady said to Gray.
In the loss, Brady stated that Washington “played exactly how they wanted to play” and that the Buccaneers “didn’t do the things that we needed to do.”
