After failing to jump off to a grand start with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tom Brady has found all the missing ingredients as his Buccaneers headline the NFC South alongside the New Orleans Saints going into Week 11.
Even so, Brady admits there has been a certain level of difficulty to truly form a strong alliance with his new teammates due to the ongoing pandemic:
“… Social distancing, you know, you can’t do anything outside the facility together,” said Brady during an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “You know, everyone’s gotta stay apart and not talk to anybody. Well that’s a really hard thing to do to develop a lot of trust and a lot of, you know, a relationship that’s deeper than catching passes and handing off the ball and so forth.
While Brady has known the taste of playoff victory along with the eventual bragging rights of being renowned as a Super Bowl champion, he also acknowledged that most of his teammates haven’t had the same fortune in experiencing that platform during their time in the league. The veteran quarterback wants his Buccaneers teammates to experience that:
“I think for a lot of the guys, a lot of the guys on the team have never made the playoffs,” Brady said. “And that was, for me, you know I want them to experience that. It’s an amazing part of being a professional player when you get that time in the year.”
Brady and the Buccaneers will continue to push ahead to the playoffs, with hopes of making a run to the Super Bowl.
