    Tom Brady scolds team after 23-16 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars - Sports - The Boston Globe

    I am sure this is a little over dramatic. But Brady's presser, was a classic in not happy.

    The gist of the article was time is ticking on Brady and he knows it, yada yada ya. Either way Brady was non to happy with said performance..

    (Mods if this needs to be moved move)

    Brady lit into the offense on the sidelines. And he should have. This team sleepwalked through the first quarter and were inconsistent for the rest of the game. I know they had a lot of players out on defense and others playing out of position, but this was a lifeless, mistake filled game.

    I listened to the radio for much of the first quarter because I was in my car. Right off the bat, Zo said that the team was flat in pregame workouts and it showed going into the first quarter. Seemed that they either felt this was an easy win or they weren't playing for anything.

    Geez I am really not looking forward to his retirement wish he plays for 10 more years.

    Watched it with a friend who said, "Brady should just come out to his presser and say 'what the f--- just happened?' and walk off." I sort of agreed.

    I'm really just glad we won, but it was a putrid performance from virtually everyone, including Brady. A little off topic, but I've become convinced that even ex-players aren't able to predict games much better than fans. I listened to the WEEI pre-game with Dale Arnold, Matt Chatham and Kevin Faulk. All 3 predicted scores in the 45-55 to 10-20 range. And that happens all the time.

    You mean the guy who threw two ints in the first quarter (the same guy who was throwing passes to his receivers shoe tops many times last week) lit into everyone else for not playing well?

    Tom, whatever happened to leading by example?

    Everyone has had stretches lately where they've played like crap...and that includes Brady. He needs to let the coaches do the upbrading and needs to accept it alongside his teammates or he's risking coming off like a primadonna.

    I hope Brady looked in the mirror.

    Only one of the incidents of Brady berating his teammates was actually shown on TV yesterday. He yelled at his OL too. Injuries or not injuries, this team is not picking a good time to play some of its worst football of the season.

    The two of you must be joking. Brady's always been pathologically self-critical. What's he supposed to do to illustrate that, yell at himself?

    I'd rather he and BB act as if they lost.

    Now a certain Jets coach would be thumping his chest telling us that that his team is Super Bowl bound.

    One thing I wonder is whether the Pats' player took last week's game as a win as many of the Pats' fans did. Not that the Pats won, but not being as upset after the loss because they came back from a huge deficit. That might have affected them coming out with a sense of urgency and anger.

    Let the coaches do the yelling. I'm sure Brady isn't the only guy on the team who's self-critical.

    It didn't look like it to me. It looked like they had a bad week of practice and were just absolutely flat. In the pre game warm ups, guys were either joking or laughing or looking completely uninspired. I think they took the Jags lightly. But that's just me.

    It's not an excuse, but it has to be hard getting up for a team like the Jaguars especially when you do not control your destiny and are depending on teams like Cleveland and KC to make your game the least bit relevant. Chances are most likely that this game and next week's game are completely meaningless.

    I don't buy the whole 'momentum' thing. Sure in some cases playing like crap or resting on the last week(s) has hurt teams, but I've seen plenty of teams go into the playoffs on fire only to be one and done or teams that back into the playoffs who wrapped things up with ease only due to playing in an awful division, end up going all the way. It's really an overrated thing IMO and even though you're obviously coached to put forth your best effort day in day out it just doesn't happen. We clearly weren't up for that game mentally.

    Geez, here we go with the chicken littles who always find something to complain about after a win and...

    Huh, what's that....? Brady said it?

    Oh, nevermind.

    Yeah, the 3-time SB winning, 2-time MVP, possible-GOAT unquestioned leader of the team shouldn't yell at his players, because he obviously doesn't know what he's doing. Brady should let Josh M. do all the yelling, instead.

    Brady should obviously be more like Tony Romo.

    INTs happen. I'm not going to blame Brady for at least one of those INTs. Nothing the QB can do about a player bobbling a ball.

    First pick wasn't his fault. Was a great pass which wasn't caught, wobbled and landed into the Jag's safety. Just saying...

    Looks like the ball hit the defender before Ridley touched it.
