Tom Brady will not be playing in this year’s Super Bowl. A wild playoff game with the Los Angeles Rams resulted in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers being eliminated from contention. Brady’s future immediately came into question.
During a post-game press conference after the game, Brady was noncommittal on the subject. Tom and his teammates just suffered a very emotional loss. Brady wasn’t thinking about anything beyond that, according to TMZ Sports.
Truthfully guys, I’m thinking about this game. I’m not thinking about anything past five minutes from now.
I haven’t put a lot of thought into it, so you know, we will just take it day by day and kind of see where we are at.”
Former Brady teammate Rob Ninkovich recently stated that he wouldn’t be surprised if the Bucs QB called it a career in the event of a loss. Bucs head coach Bruce Arians was also asked about Tom Brady’s future. Arians said that’s up to Brady himself.
Tom Brady led Tampa Bay storming back from an early 27-3 deficit. After scoring the tying touchdown, Tampa had their hearts broken as Matthew Stafford calmly drove the Los Angeles Rams to a game-winning field goal. Tom will now take some time to think about where he wants to go from here.
