“That’s on me,” Tom Brady takes full accountability for the Bucs’ embarrassing loss against the Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati Bengals had a 17-point comeback victory against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brady too had a horrible outing as he threw 2 interceptions and was responsible for 4 turnovers in total.

Post-game, the Bucs quarterback took full responsibility for the loss. Speaking on his weekly Let’s Go! podcast in the latest episode that a team can’t win when their quarterback turns the ball over 4 times. “That’s on me,” said Brady, referring to the loss. He explained that there are multiple ways one can handle adversity and his way is by taking accountability for his action.

“There’s ways you can handle adversity, one is you point fingers at people, which we don’t do. Another thing you do is you quit and that’s not what we do, and the other thing is you point at yourself and that’s what we do,” said Brady. He admitted that he has a better job. “I Gotta be better for my team, I gotta be better for our organization, and I gotta be better for our fans,” Brady said.

Brady also doesn’t like players feeling sorry for themselves and playing victim after a loss. “This is not the time to feel sorry for yourselves, so get up, go to work and make it better,” Brady said. The seven-time Super Bowl champion also talked about how it’s so easy to throw in the towel and it’s what losers do.

Tom Brady put things into perspective about the Bucs’ season as well. Even though the Buccaneers’ season looks like a lot cause Brady thinks they still have a lot of time to turn the season around. “In a crazy, crazy, crazy way our whole season is still ahead of us,” said Brady.

Can Tom Brady make the playoffs?

With a record of 6-8, Bucs would be out of the playoff picture if they played in any other division. Fortunately for Brady, he’s playing in the NFC South, a division where there are no real winners.

The Bucs are currently sitting at the top of the NFC South division with a record of 6 wins and 8 losses. The Saints, Panthers, and Falcons all have a 5-9 record. And as the Bucs currently have a 3-1 record against the division opponents, so they have a slight upper hand in a tie-breaker scenario.

Also, the Bucs don’t have to worry about tiebreakers as they control their own destiny in NFC South. The Tampa-based team can lose their next game and still qualify for the playoff as long as they beat the Falcons and Panthers in their last two regular-season games. If the Bucs manage to do that, they could qualify for the playoffs with an 8-9 record.

However, the team will look to every remaining game, including the one against the Arizona Cardinals this weekend. The Cardinals will be playing without their star quarterback Kyler Murray. He tore his ACL in week 14 and is out for the remaining NFL season.
