“You’ve got to be way better than average” Tom Brady demands more from teammates despite win vs Rams

Tom Brady’s heyday was a moment when he was unsurpassed in the NFL arena. Recently, the veteran quarterback helped lead the Buccaneers to a 16-13 victory against the Rams in a nail-biter on Sunday.

Brady directed a game-winning drive of 60 yards in the game’s last 44 seconds. There were just nine seconds left on the clock when rookie tight end Cade Otton scored the game-winning touchdown from one yard out.

The Buccaneers snapped a three-game losing run to improve to 4-5 on the season, but Brady reportedly expects to see more commitment from his squad since they are “disappointing” at present.

“If you want to be a great team, you’ve got to be way better than average,” Brady stated on the latest episode of a podcast. “So correcting our mistakes, improving our effort — which probably is the most embarrassing part of our team — is our effort level on game day, and that’s something we better fix.”

Although the Buccaneers are in first place in the NFC South, Brady is hesitant to join an “average” club, particularly in light of their offense’s recent troubles.

Only three touchdown passes have been thrown by Brady in the previous four games, while two have been scored on the ground.

To emphasize the team’s troubles this season, Brady dropped two games under .500 for the very first time in his 23-year career when the Buccaneers lost to the Ravens in Week 8.

This weekend, the Buccaneers will play the Seahawks in Munich, Germany. Brady and the Buccaneers will need a victory over the NFC West’s top team to be taken seriously as a playoff contender.
