Tom Brady was as frustrated as he’s ever been when the Tampa Bay Bucs faced off against the New Orleans Saints.
Things got so bad that he threw a temper tantrum several times during the game that resulted him tossing a Microsoft tablet in anger and cursing out a Saints coach.
Shannon Sharpe did not appreciate anything the Bucs QB did that game, so he took him to task during Undisputed.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback went viral after appearing to curse out New Orleans Saints defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen after throwing an interception in the 9-0 loss on Sunday.
Immediately after the game, Brady said it was “just football” when asked about the exchange. He dove more into te exchange during Monday’s episode of the “Let’s Go!” podcast.
“Oh, we were just exchanging pleasantries,” he said, via NOLA.com. “It was a nice night in Tampa. We were just wonderfully, in the heat of the moment, expressing, uh, I wouldn’t say pleasantries, but we were very competitive in that moment, it was emotional. So that’s just football players being football players.”
The Saints successfully disrupted the veteran quarterback for New Orleans’ seventh straight win over the Bucs during the regular season and the fourth since Brady left New England for Tampa Bay in 2020.
“You know, they’ve done well against me,” Brady admitted. “They’ve done well against everybody. They’ve got a lot of good players. They’re really well coached. They’re a terrific defense and they play us really well.”
