Brady Takes Blame for Sideline Spat with OC O’Brien


Tom Brady and Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien got into a heated argument (watch video of the altercation HERE) on the sidelines after Brady threw an interception in the end zone late in the fourth quarter. His pass was intended for WR Tiquan Underwood, but Redskins CB Josh Wilson undercut the route and picked the pass off. O’Brien and Brady had to separated as O’Brien was yelling at Brady sitting on the bench. Bill Belichick eventually walked over and pulled O’Brein away. Moments later, the two were discussing the play together on the bench. After the game, Brady took responsibility for the spat:

“I threw a pretty bad interception and he wasn’t happy about it. There are probably a long line of coaches and players that were pretty pissed at me after that, but Billy got to me first. He let me have it and I deserved it.

“We’re both pretty emotional guys. That’s what I deserve. You make a bad throw, you’re supposed to get yelled at by your coaches. It’s certainly not the first time and it probably won’t be the last. You can’t do it in that situation. It was just a stupid play by me.”

How many times do you think it will be brought it up throughout the week?
