Tom Brady doesn’t lose many games.
But his most recent loss was a complete disaster.
And Tom Brady left the media asking one question with his reaction to a stunning defeat.
On Sunday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers dropped a stunning 29 to 19 decision to the Washington Redskins.
The Redskins limped into the game at 2 and 6 and Tampa Bay needed the win to keep pace with Green Bay, Arizona, and Dallas in the fight for home field advantage in the NFC playoffs.
Washington raced out to a 13 to 0 lead after Brady threw two first quarter interceptions and held on for a win.
Brady finished the game 23 of 34 for 220 yards and two touchdowns, but when Brady met the media after the game, those two first quarter interceptions clearly were under his skin.
Brady gruffly told the media, “Let’s make this quick,” when he sat down for his postgame press conference and then stormed out after answering three questions in less than a minute.
“After Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost a 29-19 game to the Washington Football Team, he walked behind the podium and told reporters, ‘Who wants to start? Make it quick.’ Brady then fielded three questions — about not executing splash plays, the difficulties kick-starting the offense after a bye week, and throwing two interceptions — before leaving the podium less than a minute later,” the New York Post reported.
“That’s it?” one member of the press was heard asking after Brady left the postgame press conference.
Tampa Bay won the Super Bowl last year by winning three straight road playoff games – the first one, ironically enough, in Washington.
But the Buccaneers suffered through a dismal regular season and Brady clearly does not want to try and repeat last year’s road warriors playoff showing.
Tampa Bay still leads the NFC South and is in line to play their first playoff game at home.
However, Sunday’s defeat leaves them looking at road games in the Divisional and Championship Game rounds if they advance.
And that clearly does not sit well with Tom Brady.
