Report: Tom Brady went ‘another level’ in practice this week, per reports
Tom Brady had a less-than-ideal debut with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1 versus the New Orleans Saints. Following Brady’s poor performance to begin the season, Brady took himself to ‘another level’ during practice this week.
Against the Saints in Week 1, Brady completed a modest 63.8 percent of his 36 passing attempts. However, the future Hall of Famer threw for only 239 yards, two touchdowns, and he had two costly interceptions.
One of Tom Brady’s interceptions was a pick-six by Janoris Jenkins, giving the Saints a double-digit lead. With Brady and the offense struggling, the Buccaneers would fall to the Saints by the score of 34-23 in the first week of the season.
During his time with the New England Patriots, Brady was never accustomed to losing. In his 20 seasons in Foxborough, Brady compiled only 64 losses in the 285 games he played in.
Furthermore, last Sunday’s loss marked just the fourth loss in Week 1 in Brady’s entire career. What is even more interesting is that each time Brady has lost in Week 1 previously in his career, his team has advanced to the Super Bowl.
It goes without saying that Brady is one of the most competitive players to ever play in the NFL. Even though no one likes to lose games, Brady takes it personally and is going to do everything he can to correct his mistakes.
After a dismal showing to kickstart his career with the Buccaneers, Brady is focused on having a stellar performance in Week 2. Unfortunately for the Carolina Panthers, they’ll be the first team he faces after a devastating loss.
