‘I Can Live With A Drop’: Tom Brady throws shade at Aaron Rodgers as he reflects on receiver’s missed catches during Bucs vs Rams

Tom Brady was in an ecstatic mood after the Bucs beat the Rams this Sunday in a very close game. However, the Bucs were literally out of the game with just a few seconds left on the clock. However, Brady used his experience and threw a one-yard pass to rookie tight end Cade Otton for a touchdown and a win.

Despite the win, the Bucs players missed many catches in the game. Even in the game against the Panthers, Mike Evans dropped an easy catch and people criticized him massively. However, Brady wasn’t particularly critical of his receivers when he recently talked about what bothers him the most.

Did Tom Brady Try Aaron Rodgers?

During his weekly podcast, ‘Let’s Go,’ host Jim Gray asked Brady about his earlier statement about not being bothered by missed catches. In response, TB12 said, I know there are probably a lot more people who play golf than play football, but you know, if you hit a bad shot, you hit a bad shot. I think the problem comes when you… you make the wrong decision before the club is in your hand. So if you make the wrong decision before you even go up to the play, you’re not even giving yourself a chance. So that’s where I have a problem if you don’t know what to do or we don’t know how to do it, both are problems.

“I can live with the physical failure, I can live with a fall, I can live with a lost block. If I throw a bad pass and I miss it, I know the receiver can live with it. I think the problem is if we make mistakes from a communication standpoint, whether it’s me miscommunicating or the back end or the line. And you’ve unblocked people and things just don’t go right… Really an unforced error, that’s what we need to eliminate,” he continued.

During the offseason, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was really critical of his receivers. According to reports, he called a meeting where he gave a speech to some of the young recipients, including Samori Toure, Romeo Doubs and others. After not going for any wide receivers at the trade deadline, Rodgers talked about relying on their existing team.

In a recent interview with Pat McAfee, Rodgers praised both Toure and Doubs and their contributions to the team. However, he felt discouraged by many injuries, as he spoke about not getting a healthy team from the start of the season.
