Tom Brady’s postgame press conference suggests he will not be returning for Buccaneers next season after loss vs Cowboys

Tom Brady ended the season with a humiliating loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night. His team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, has been knocked out of the playoffs for the consecutive time after winning the Super Bowl in 2020.

The Bucs lost the game in a shambolic way as they couldn’t add anything to the score until the second half. They were able to gather only 14 points before the game ended. The 45-year-old veteran was shaken by this terrible loss, and speculation about his future is already rampant.

What did Tom Brady say?

In the postgame press conference, the Bucs QB appeared with a long face and made a subtle statement. “I just want to say thank you guys for everything this year. I really appreciate all your effort. And I know it’s hard for you guys, too. It’s hard for us players to make it through, and you guys got a tough job. And I appreciate all that you guys do to cover us and everyone who watches and a big fan of the sport. We’re very grateful for everyone’s support,” Tom said.

His voice tone and raw emotion were a clear reflection of his suffering a crushing loss and being knocked out of the competition. However, his statement was pointing to his retirement from the profession.

“And, you know, hopefully, you know, I love this organization. It’s a great place to be. I love everyone for welcoming me, all you regulars. And just very grateful for the respect, and I hope I gave the same thing back to you guys. So thank you very much,” Brady also added.

One can easily take it as a goodbye letter from a seven-time Super Bowl winner. But when it comes to the goat, QB Tom Brady, we can never be sure.

Previously, he went on to retire at age 44 – only a year ago – but he decided to resume his NFL career with Tampa Bay Buccaneers being inspired by football ace Cristiano Ronaldo causing his marital woes that finally led to their divorce.

How was Tom Brady’s career so far?

Brady has been a stellar performer throughout his appearance in all the franchises he has ever played with. The most wins, the most passing completions in yards, the most touchdowns, and the rarest longest touchdown pass are some of those achievements.

During his 23-year career, he also won five Super Bowl MVPs, three NFL MVPs, 15 Pro Bowls, and five NFL passing touchdowns.

Perhaps Brady will consider retiring after his current contract expires this season. Still, he has an option to sign somewhere else, as he already expressed his desire cryptically not to re-sign with the Bucs.

Do you think Tom Brady should continue his career to become the undisputed goat? or should he retire with a bitter taste as a loser? You can share your thoughts with us by leaving a comment.
