Tom Brady is viewed by many as the greatest quarterback in football history.
But every one has an off moment.
And one video showed Tom Brady saying three words that no one could believe.
It was a rough night at the office for Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The New Orleans Saints kept their playoff hopes alive with a 9-0 shutout win in Tampa.
Brady struggled, going 26-48 for 214 yards and threw an interception to Saints safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson with 3:47 left in the game that killed any chances of a Bucs comeback.
But it was what happened next that left everyone talking.
Video showed Brady running over to the Saints sideline after the interception and yelling “Go f**k yourself, b*tch” to Saints defensive coordinator Dennis Allen who served as the team’s head coach after Sean Payton tested positive for coronavirus.

This was a much different side of Tom Brady than anyone has ever seen.
The Bucs losing to the Saints knocked Tampa Bay out of first place in the NFC.
That’s even more important than normal.
Under the NFL’s new playoff format, only the top seed in each conference earns a bye week into the divisional round of the playoffs.
The other three division champs enter the playoffs in the Wild Card round and need to win three games to advance to the Super Bowl.
Tampa took that route to the Super Bowl last year.
But with the top of the NFL looking stronger this season, Brady clearly wants to play his playoff games at home in Tampa where the weather will not be a factor.
And Brady’s frustration with dropping a key game to a mediocre opponent led to a most un-Brady-like on-the-field moment.
