When you have a popular and 20-year veteran household name like Tom Brady at quarterback, the camera is going to be on him as many times as possible in a primetime game. Brady, who is known for his intensity on the field, has been seen over the years blowing up at times on various players, referees and even coaches in frustration.
That was the case in the Bucs’ 20-19 loss to the Bears on Thursday night, where Brady was seen on the sidelines yelling at his offensive line. On the previous drive in the third quarter, the Bucs momentum was stymied after a series of penalties called, including a personal foul on center Ryan Jensen. In defense of Brady, he was sacked three times along with 8 hits total while the Bucs committed 11 penalties for 109 yards. That’s a league leading 42 penalties for 410 yards on the season.

Brady sent the message about cleaning things up in a colorful way that caught the attention of the public with the camera on him. Head coach Bruce Arians was fine with the outburst.
“Just be yourself,” Arians said. “I don’t have any problem with it. At least I don’t have to go back there and cuss them out, they already got an earful by the time I get over there. Tom’s got to be Tom, I’m not going to ask him to be someone different.
“He does a good job of patting them on the back, too. He might explode but he’s going to go down there and pat them on the back and get them going.”
