TAMPA, Fla. – Now that Tom Brady’s divorce from Giselle Bündchen reportedly has been finalized he says he has two major commitments, his kids and trying to win games with the Buccaneers.
Brady and the Bucs host the LA Rams Sunday having lost five of their last six games. Brady doesn’t want to use all the turmoil in his private life to be an excuse for his performance not being Brady-like.
“I’ve always tried to do the best I could here and then when I leave here, I try to do the best I could do,” Brady said. “That’s what we all do. I’m sure everyone sitting in this room, everyone sitting at home is trying to do the best they could do for their families and their career and I’m no different.”
Brady has never in his NFL career been 2 games below .500.The good thing for the Bucs is that they’re in a bad NFC South just a game out of first place even though they’re at 3-5. But Brady says they’re not looking at their division, they’ve got to take care of their own business.
“The reality is there’s a reason why we’re 3-5. It’s one game, but it’s not like we have a huge margin of error when we take the field. We don’t, so we’ve got to make the plays that are winning plays. There’s winning football, there’s losing football. We just haven’t been on the right side of winning very much this year.”
The Rams come in struggling just as much as the Bucs. Brady says it’s not the opponent, it’s what they do and if they don’t execute they won,t beat anybody. Bucs offensive coordinator Bryon Leftwich says there’s enough blame to go around and it’s hard because of all the success the offense has had since Brady arrived.
“Obviously we haven’t been as good as we’ve been after the half,” Leftwich said. “I don’t think we’ve been as good as we’ve been in either quarter. I like the way we’re working. That’s all you can do is try to find a way to get better. Tom is fine. I think we can play better around him. I think I can coach it better.”
The Rams beat the Bucs last season in week 3, 34-24, and lost to LA in the NFC Divisional Round 30-27.
“There’s a lot of football to play,” Brady said. ” and we’ve got to play better. That’s just the reality of the situation we’re in.”
