ESPN analyst and former NFL coach Rex Ryan completely unloaded on Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Bucs.
After the Bucs lost 21-3 to the Panthers, their fourth loss in five games, the ESPN analyst spoke about Tom Brady’s performance amid rumors of a bitter divorce from supermodel Gisele Bundchen.
“This team is searching like crazy. At least they’re trying, they’re searching, but Tom Brady looks like a shell of himself,” Ryan said on ESPN’s “Get Up” on Monday morning. “You look at him even physically. His personal life, obviously, is having an effect too. I get it. I don’t want to minimize this. It’s a factor. Obviously it’s something. This looks like there’s no answer because there’s no speed on the field.”
“This team is old and slow. … They are unwatchable on offense. Tom Brady looks like a shell of himself, even physically. … This thing looks like there’s no answer because there’s no speed on the field.”
Brady was 32-49 for 290 yards on the day, and while those numbers look good, he averaged fewer than six yards per attempt. He also couldn’t get his team in the end zone once, which was in part due to Mike Evans dropping a for-sure touchdown early in the game.
The Bucs have lost four of five.
The silver lining for Tampa is that at 3-4, they still lead the NFC South in a tie with the Falcons.
