Furious Tom Brady slams tablet during Tampa Bay win over New Orleans as fans criticize quarterback for acting like ‘anxious 16-year-old’ and insist NFL ‘let him get away with it’

  • The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the New Orleans Saints 20-10 on Sunday
  • The Buccaneers struggled earlier in the game, trailing the Saints 3-0
  • Tom Brady didn’t hide his frustrations when he threw a tablet on the floor
  • The quarterback also threw a tablet when he faced the Saints last December

NFL superstar Tom Brady was spotted throwing a team tablet to the ground during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers win on the New Orleans Saints Sunday.

The Buccaneers eventually triumphed over the Saints in the Superdome with a 20-10 win, but it had been a close battle until the fourth quarter, with Tampa Bay trailing 3-0 for a while, and the tension was clearly on Brady.

The quarterback hasn’t been able to catch up with his NFC South rival since joining the Bucs in 2020, and as his week 2 battle continued on Sunday, he didn’t hide his frustrations.

After one of the many failed Buccaneers drives, Brady put his tablet on the sidelines.

This wasn’t the first time Brady had a tendency to throw tablets around when he knocked one off the bench in a 9-0 defeat to the Saints in December.

He was later given a warning by the league for venting his frustrations on the electronic device after the incident.

“I can’t throw another Surface or I’ll be fined. Imagine that. Imagine,” Brady said earlier on his “Let’s Go!” podcasting.

“I’m not throwing another Surface. Although I think it was pretty good marketing for the Surface in the end. I think it turned out pretty well for them.’

It remains to be seen if Brady will get another warning for his tablet antics in the coming week, but the league didn’t hold back from making his colleagues pay after Week 1.

Five NFL players were fined more than $54,000 combined for unsportsmanlike conduct in the first week of the season, including star-wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Ja’Marr Chase.

While it’s not clear what the NFL’s verdict will be, fans have already taken to social media to express their views on his actions.

Many claimed the competition let the star “get away with it,” comparing his behavior to that of a “fearful 16-year-old.”

One posted: ‘Tom Brady’s Competitive Fire** is on full display again! That’s why he’s the GOAT and has seven rings!

“** yelling obscenities at teammates and coaches, throwing his helmet and tablet into the ground like a frightened 16-year-old called the monster Kyle.”

Another compared Brady to former President Donald Trump for claiming the media had exalted his behavior.

They wrote: ‘Idc what no one is saying, @TomBrady is the #DonaldTrump of football, and the #NFL lets him get away with it, and the media exalts his behavior while denigrating every black athlete for similar behaviour! #NFLbully’

Others claimed Aaron Rodgers, Brady’s Green Bay Packers counterpart, would face backlash if he behaved the same way.

Former Packers recipient James Jones tweeted: “If @AaronRodgers12 acted like Tom Brady on the sidelines, he wouldn’t be called a competitor.”

A fan was also quick to point out the differences when they posted: “Aaron Rodgers frowns:

Media: Aaron Rodgers is dramatic and a terrible leader.

Tom Brady curses his whole team:

Media: Tom Brady is encouraging and a great leader.”

Some found the funny side of the incident when they joked that Microsoft might want to sit out Brady’s next showdown with the Saints.

“Microsoft must be tired of Tom Brady,” said one of them.

Another wrote, “Maybe the Microsoft tablet will want to sit outside next time Tom Brady plays the Saints.”

Tampa Bay then takes on Rodgers and the Packers at Green Bay next Sunday in Week 3.
