Tom Brady threw another whistle fit on Sunday losing to “Mr. Irrelevant” and the host San Francisco 49ers.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback was captured in a fit of rage by Fox Sports cameras as his team trailed 28-0 at halftime en route to a 35-7 loss. That leaves the Bucs (6-7) below .500.
49ers rookie quarterback Brock Purdy, making his first NFL start, looked like an old pro as he dispatched an idol. Purdy was the final pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, winning the annual “Mr. Title without interest”.
Brady had never lost to a quarterback making his NFL debut — and what made it particularly inglorious was that it happened near where Brady grew up in the Bay Area.
The seven-time Super Bowl winner has already lambasted his teammates and his tablets during a season also slowed by his divorce. (Even so, the Bucs reside in first place in the NFC South.)
But many fans didn’t feel so sympathetic after witnessing another Brady meltdown.
