Tom Brady admitted to hating press conferences after defeats
OIn the weekly podcast on which he appears with Jim Gray “Let’s Go!”, Tampa Bay Buccaneers strategist Tom Brady spoke for the first time since the 56-second press conference following the NFL’s Week 10 loss to the Washington football team.
It didn’t last a minute
I think it’s a real challenge for me
Brady admitted that as expectations grow and years of play increase, frustration on post-loss conference calls increases, so he tries not to drag it out.
“I think it’s a real challenge for me, especially since I became old because the expectations are so high,” Brady said. “I think when you win it’s a relief, and when you lose it’s a real disappointment. So sometimes you miss the joy. And I have to remember the joy of playing, and that takes a bit of a step back.”
Brady understands that he needs be more patient in those moments, however, he confessed to recognizing him a few days later and not right away.
“But it’s hard when you’re in the fight, you know? When you’re in the middle of the fight and it’s the seventh round of the fight, it’s hard to take a step back because you want to start over,” said Brady added.
He only answered three questions
the seven-time Super Bowl winner was only asked three questions after the game and on the last, when asked “what did you see?” on his two interceptions, Brady offered his best imitation to escape his former head coach’s response, Bill Belichick.
“We started with the ball, they came away with it. So. Thanks, guys,” Brady replied.
