With all the expectation that existed to see Tom Brady outside the Patriots for the first time in a 20-year career, his debut with the Buccaneers was disappointing. And now even coach Bruce Arians has pointed out the performance of the veteran passer.
In a press conference, the Tampa Bay coach assured that the pick six that Brady threw in the third quarter of duel against the Saints (intercepted by Malcolm Jenkins) it was the fault of a bad execution of the QB 43 years old.
“If there is an outside route, you don’t throw low and out – that wasn’t the case until then. He did it a little late and there were probably better options to shoot the ball“said the head coach.
Total, Brady threw for 239 yards, with two touchdowns, two interceptions and a touchdown on the ground. His two throws to the end zone came in the second half, when Tampa Bay faced deficits of 10 and 17 points.
Patience at Raymond James Stadium
Despite the Buccaneers already scoring their first loss of the year, Arians assured that Brady will know how to recover from the disaster and He announced that for week 2, when the Panthers visit Florida, TB12 will be another.
“He knows how to come back from that. He knows that he did not play very well and it is not what he expects of himself, nor what we expect. I anticipate that he will have a little more courage and determination this week. “ explained.
