Tom Brady has issued another rallying cry to his team following another abysmal performance in the NFL over the weekend.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost 21-3 to the Carolina Panthers in what was a huge Week 7 shock. The defeat came a week after they were beaten by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Brady launched into an angry rant then as he cut a frustrated figure and he took to social media a day later to vow that he and his teammates will turn things around.
There was no sideline meltdown in Charlotte on Sunday but Brady urged his under-performing team to ‘pull ourselves out’ of the slump post-game.
‘No one feels good about where we’re at, no one feels good about how we’ve played or what we’re doing,’ he said.
‘We’re all in it together. We’ve gotta go pull ourselves out of it.’

On-field issues are mounting amid reports his wife supermodel Gisele Bundchen, 42, has hired a top divorce lawyer. She has reportedly hired Tom Sasser (R), an attorney based out of Florida
On-field issues are mounting amid reports his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen has hired a top divorce lawyer.
The Bucs fell below .500 as the Panthers sealed just their second win of the season.
Brady hasn’t had a losing record this far into a season since the 2002 New England Patriots dropped four straight games to reach 3-4. The star quarterback has never been under .500 after eight games.
Bundchen has allegedly hired Florida’s top divorce lawyer after her relationship with NFL legend Brady turned ‘very nasty.’
The supermodel is said to have started gearing up for the long fight by hiring Tom Sasser – whose previous clients include Tiger Woods and Jeff Gordon.
Bundchen, 42, was spotted out and about earlier this month while running errands without her diamond wedding ring – as rumors about her marriage continued to swirl. Earlier this week, her NFL beau, 45, was also seen without a ring.
Bundchen, 42, and Brady, 45, have reportedly hired divorce lawyers 13 years after saying ‘I do’ in 2009, according to multiple reports
Brady launched into a foul-mouthed rant at his under-performing teammates last weekend
Sources told Page Six the addition of divorce lawyers has caused the stressful separation to turn ‘very nasty between Tom and Gisele.’
‘They are ready to fight,’ the source said. ‘It will take some time to divide their immense wealth and property all over the world.’
The high-profile couple are said to be on neutral grounds regarding their two shared kids Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, nine – opting for joint custody. Brady also has another son Jack, 15, with ex Bridget Moynahan.
Bundchen has been jet-setting recently while Brady hangs out in Miami during the football season. They’ve been living separately since reportedly having an huge fight over Brady’s announcement he wasn’t going to retire, with many speculating that’s what prompted their ongoing rift.
The pair are reportedly not fighting over their shared children Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, nine. They have reportedly decided on joint custody
He had initially quit his football career, in part, to focus on his family – as he vowed to spend more time with them since Gisele ‘deserves what she needs from me as a husband, and my kids deserve what they need from me as a dad.’
However, a source confirmed to DailyMail.com in late-September that their physical separation was not impacted by Brady’s move to rejoin his beloved sport.
The mother-of-two briefly mentioned her feelings on the topic in an interview with Elle magazine in September, revealing: ‘I feel very fulfilled, as a mother and as a wife. And now it’s going to be my turn.’
Gisele added: ‘I’ve done my part, which is [to] be there for [Tom]. I moved to Boston, and I focused on creating a cocoon and a loving environment for my children to grow up in and to be there supporting him and his dreams.
Gisele was pictured with a smile on her face for the first time in weeks as she enjoyed a three-hour session and a lunch with spiritual healer Dr Ewa Wieruszewska earlier this month
‘Seeing my children succeed and become the beautiful little humans that they are, seeing him succeed, and being fulfilled in his career—it makes me happy.
‘At this point in my life, I feel like I’ve done a good job on that. I have a huge list of things that I have to do, that I want to do. At 42, I feel more connected with my purpose.’
Despite the rocky relationship, Brady announced earlier this week that he had no plans for retirement in the near future. He said: ‘I love the sport, and I love the teammates, and I want to go do a great job for this team like I always have. No retirement in my future.’
His wife of 13 years has not attended any of Brady’s Bucs games this season.
Brady announced that he was retiring in February, only to turn around a few weeks later and U-turn on the decision.
‘There’s been trouble in the marriage over his decision to un-retire. Gisele has always been the one with the kids,’ the source told Page Six. ‘They had agreed he would retire to focus on the family, then he changed his mind.’
Brady issued a rallying cry to his struggling Bucs team after their latest defeat at the weekend
Brady, who threw a tablet to the ground in a sideline game meltdown last month, opened up about the ‘intense stress’ he faces on a recent episode of his SiriusXM podcast.
On his podcast, Brady did stress the importance of work-life balance, while continuing to omit any mention of his wife.
‘And I think there was a part of us where we felt like, you know, suck it up and deal with it,’ Brady said. ‘And I think you realize that there’s a lot, especially in today’s day and age, with how fast things are happening in life for all of us, and the amount of responsibilities we have.
‘And also, you know, I think there’s part of us that are held to a certain standard that we’re almost inhuman,’ he continued. ‘You know, you hear this a lot from people that say, you know, ‘I’m only human.’ We are only human. We’re not inhuman. We’re not immune to a lot of the things that just life brings us. We’re not robots.
‘You wake up every day trying to do the best you can do, understanding that life has its stresses and to deal with them with a great support system and understanding and having some introspectiveness in your life where you can look at yourself and say, where do I need to commit my time and energy to?
‘And how can I lessen some of the stress and lessen the burden on me so that I can be good for people around me? So those are all different things that you work at. I worked at them when I was 20. There was a lot of things that I was going through when I was 20. There was a lot of things I was going through in my 30s.’
Brady then added, ‘there’s things I’m going through in my 40s,’ but again, neglected to mention his wife or any reported marital issues.
‘And it’s life,’ Brady said. ‘And you learn to grow up and you learn to deal with life. And that’s what we’re all trying to do. We’re trying to do it the best way we can.’
