Tampa Bay Buccaneers superstar quarterback Tom Brady is one of the most vicious competitors in NFL history. The future Hall of Famer will do whatever it takes to win a football game and isn’t afraid to yell at his teammates if he has to.
Brady is as nice of a person you are going to find off the football field. However, the greatest signal-caller of all time didn’t become a sports icon by being friendly and delightful in the heat of battle.
Tom Brady has yelled at plenty of teammates during his career
With the New England Patriots and Buccaneers, Tom Brady has yelled at a bevy of teammates. The Pro Bowl QB has even got into fights with coaches.
During the 2020 regular season, Brady went off on Buccaneers center Ryan Jensen after the offensive lineman committed a costly penalty that stopped a nice looking drive against the Chicago Bears in Week 5. Brady was furious at Jensen and shouted at him profusely on the sideline.
Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians had no issue with Brady’s actions, but the national media wasn’t too fond of the veteran QB lashing out at his center for the world to see. In the end, it didn’t matter since Brady and Jensen have a good relationship and the Buccaneers won the NFC.
It turns out, though, that Ryan Jensen isn’t the only player Tom Brady yelled at this season.
Tom Brady cursed at a teammate for crying after the Buccaneers defeated the Packers
According to Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David, Tom Brady cursed out a teammate who was crying after the team defeated the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. The six-time champion said no crying was allowed until the Buccanneers won the Super Bowl.
Tampa Bay will face Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 55. Brady is searching for his seventh championship and his first with an NFC team. The Super Bowl will be must-see TV since it features the two best quarterbacks in the league going head-to-head.
Tom Brady will never shy away from challenging his teammates. He’s cut from the same cloth as Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. The former Michigan star doesn’t care if feelings are hurt. He will always speak his mind and lash out at players or coaches if he sees something he doesn’t like. Brady has earned that right since he’s the most decorated quarterback in NFL history.
TB12 has defeated father time
Tom Brady is 43-years-old and still an elite quarterback. He has defeated father time and is one win away from capturing his seventh Super Bowl.
During the 2020 season, Brady threw for 4,633 yards and 40 touchdowns. Those are numbers an old gunslinger shouldn’t put up, but Brady isn’t your average aging player.
Even though Tom Brady and the Buccaneers will be underdogs in Super Bowl 55 versus Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs, no one will be surprised if Tampa Bay comes out with the win. After all, this is Brady we are talking about. He led the Patriots to a 34-28 victory in Super Bowl 51 after the Atlanta Falcons took a 28-3 lead. No other QB could have pulled that off other than Brady.
