Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost 20-18 to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Nick Adams, an author who was personally endorsed by former US President Donald Trump, isn’t exactly thrilled.
The Buccaneers have lost for the third time in their last four games, this time at Steel City, as many questions about Brady and the Buccaneers offense continue to be asked.
Adams took to his Twitter account and posted that when the Buccaneers quarterback loses, America loses.
“When Tom Brady loses, America loses.”
The 45-year-old quarterback exceeded his usual high standards in the first six games of the 2022-23 NFL season.
Many cite his relationship issues with his wife Gisele Bundchen as one of the main reasons. But for Adams, he’s clearly disappointed the Buccaneers didn’t get the win.
Brady and Buccaneers are behind this season
Facing a Pittsburgh team that had rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett at the helm, many in the NFL landscape would have thought the Buccaneers could pull off a win.
After Pickett had to leave the game due to a concussion that brought Mitch Trubisky down, Tampa Bay was still in control. Unfortunately, their top-to-bottom form of 2022 continued.
Although the Buccaneers had more total yards, more first downs and seven more plays, they failed to win the most important stat – scoring.
Tampa Bay also wasn’t good on third down, converting just four of its 14 attempts.
Frustration on the sidelines was evident from Brady as cameras captured the 45-year-old giving his offensive line a serious narrative. The seven-time Super Bowl champion has been fired twice and never looked comfortable.
The loss leaves the Buccaneers level at the top of the NFC South with the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons beat the San Francisco 49ers 28-14 to move to the top of the division.
Many wonder exactly where Tampa Bay sits in the Super Bowl conversation. For some, they will be among the favorites, but after their rocky start to the year, making the playoffs could be a tough task.
The outfit will then travel to Bank of America Stadium for a Week 7 game against division rival Carolina Panthers.
