After having a near last second comeback snatched away from him, Tom Brady was definitely frustrated in his post-game press conference.
The normally mild-mannered Brady swore on live television, saying “We got plenty of chances all day. We make some good plays and then make plenty of [expletive] plays.”
This statement is true, as New England answered every punch the Dolphins threw, but Brady and the offense fell just short on their final drive. Brady himself played very well, completing 34 of 55 passes, for 364 yards and two touchdowns. But his team couldn’t quite finish the deal, as they fell to 10-4 on the season. They had an opportunity today to clinch the AFC East, and possibly move a step closer to getting home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. Failing to win in such an important contest probably has a lot to do with Brady being a little upset, especially after seemingly throwing the game winning touchdown to Julian Edelman late in the fourth quarter.
A lot of people are jumping on Brady for swearing on live TV, but I honestly think it is just fine for him to do this. More often than not, Brady doesn’t show much emotion in post-game interviews, and when you see how other players around the league act in situations like that, it is pretty impressive to see how Brady holds his emotions in. But every once in a while professional athletes of Brady’s importance should be allowed to show their true colors, which is exactly what he did today.
