The New England Patriots fell to 10-2 following a 28-22 loss in Houston Sunday night.
During the game, quarterback Tom Brady was caught by cameras screaming at some of his receivers who had a rough night vs the Texans secondary.
Speaking with Westwood One’s Jim Gray Monday night, Brady clarified what happened, and explained its a usual occurrence.
“I do that quite a bit in practice,” Brady said. “I know they don’t always pick it up when I do speak, but I speak a lot in meetings and [on the] practice field, and certainly in the games, and in the huddle. I’m just trying to communicate what I see. A lot of other guys are doing the same thing.”
It’s no secret the offense has struggled, but Brady remains optimistic and is pleased with the effort so far.
“Guys are trying. I have no problem — I love playing with Phillip Dorsett,” Brady said on WEEI Monday. “I love playing with N’Keal. N’Keal is working his tail off. He hasn’t had a lot of opportunities out there and he’s learning as he’s going. To expect someone to go out in their third game of the year and be perfect, I think that is unrealistic for anyone. I love what N’Keal is bringing. We’re gaining confidence every week. I love what Jakobi (Meyers) is doing. We’re gaining confidence every week. Gaining confidence with Mohamed (Sanu). Julian (Edelman) and I, we’ve played together for a long time and I think that shows itself pretty well. I think you see, James (White) and I, we’ve played together a long time.”
