Tom Brady has been getting blasted ever since a video showed him yelling and cursing at his offensive lineman on Sunday.
Tom Brady’s frustrations once again got the better of him as he berated his offensive linemen during a loss to the Steelers. The Buccaneers ultimately lost to the Steelers 20-18 in one of the biggest upsets of the NFL season thus far.
As the final seconds of the first half ticked away, Brady was seen absolutely laying into his linemen on the sidelines.
During Thursday’s edition of ESPN’s Get Up, NFL analyst Damien Woody – Brady’s starting center for his first three NFL seasons – explained that he does not like being yelled at because it doesn’t motivate him to do better.
“That does nothing for me personally,” Woody said, via NESN. “I have enough pride in my own self and me going out and doing my job. I don’t need anyone to scream at me to try to ‘get me going.’ We see this type of stuff happen all the time on the sideline. We see coaches and stuff yelling or whatever. That’s the way the sideline is. For me, personally, that does absolutely nothing for me. Nothing.”
Back in Week 2, the quarterback was similarly seen yelling on the sidelines and wound up breaking a tablet in a fit of anger.
“Remaining poised is really important,” Brady said on his podcast, “Let’s Go!” after that outburst. “I didn’t do a very good job of that yesterday, and I’ve got to be really mindful of that going forward and getting my emotions in a good place so it allows me to be the best player I can be. There’s a [point] where you can become too overly emotional, which I think I definitely was yesterday. I’ve got to find a better place to be at, so I can be at a better place for my teammates.”
The Tampa Bay Bucs are not having a good start to the season as they currently sit at 3-3 and are tied with the Atlanta Falcons for the NFC South lead.
The Buccaneers will get their chance to right the ship next week when they travel to Charlotte, North Carolina to play the 1-5 Panthers.
