It was shown on TV that Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady was directing an expletive-filled tirade at his offensive line during last Sunday’s 20-18 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
But Buccaneers center Robert Hainsey stated on Wednesday that it is what Brady wants, and it is also what their team wants.
Who Is Serving as The Starting Center for The First Time
According to Hainsey, who is in his first year as the starting center and second season in the NFL, “Everyone can call it what they want, but I want nothing more from a quarterback than that — than the person who’s trying to tell us what we need to do and step up.”
“If he had simply sat there and done nothing to get us moving or to attempt to assist us, he wouldn’t be the same person he is now.” “I like when he does it to me. I am sure that all of us appreciate hearing that from him.
But that’s just how football works, even if it seems strange on TV. You want it from great teammates and great leaders, and he is the very best there is in each of those categories.”
The outburst took place with 1 minute and 46 seconds remaining in the first half, just after a disastrous two-minute drill.
On first down, Brady was taken down by Alex Highsmith, who then forced him to lose the ball for a loss of 9 yards, which pushed the offense back to second-and-19.
This was the second time that Brady was taken down in the first half. Then, on third-and-11, Tom Brady was unable to complete a pass to wide receiver Breshad Perriman as they were running a dig route because he threw the ball too low.
Tom Brady Approached the Offensive Line from The Bench
After getting up off the bench, Tom Brady walked up to the offensive line and said, “You’re so much better than the way you’re playing!”
On his podcast “Let’s Go!” with Jim Gray and Larry Fitzgerald, Tom Brady addressed the following about the tirade that took place on Monday:
“It’s a poor day when there are more f-bombs than touchdowns but I’m not sure whether it has anything to do with motivation. To say the least, it was not one of my more successful days.
However, they used to try to avoid showing you the F-bombs on such occasions, but today it seems as if they are broadcast for all the world to see. So that’s simply the way things are going to be.”
According to Brady, it is his responsibility to adjust the team’s performance “if I don’t feel like we’re living up to the expectations and playing up to the expectations that we’re capable of.” “I’m a quarterback.
I do not think the correct tackle is going to be able to accomplish it. I do not think the running back will be able to pull it off. I do not anticipate that the recipient will conduct the task. I am counting on myself to carry it out.
I’m the one who’s out there talking to everyone in the huddle and deciding what plays to run.” “That is exactly what I do for a living. to attempt to get us moving and pull us together.
And there are many other approaches to take. And other times, it is just some uplifting words of encouragement, which you do a lot of. Sometimes it is, you know, getting on people and trying to increase the level, the feeling of urgency.
And raising my voice while trying to create a different vibe for the entire offensive. Sometimes it is just getting on people and trying to raise the level. And (ultimately) it is what you are attempting to achieve.”
