Tom Brady is winning his breakup with Bill Belichick, but don’t expect the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback to rub salt in New England’s wounds.
The Bucs are among the best teams in the National Football League this season. Tampa Bay is off to a 6-2 start and appears to be a legitimate Super Bowl contender. The Bucs are set to take on the Saints in a major Sunday Night Football contest this evening.
The Patriots, meanwhile, look to be heading toward a top 10 NFL Draft pick. New England is 2-5 on the season and, despite some early promise from Cam Newton, have serious question marks at the quarterback position.
While it would be natural for Brady to be enjoying New England’s lack of success without him, the six-time Super Bowl champion doesn’t roll like that. Instead, Brady had an honest message for the Patriots this week.
“I have a lot of relationships with a lot of teammates. I wish everybody the best all the time,” Brady said this week. “I don’t ever wish for anyone to not perform at their best. I certainly wish for our team to play its best. Maybe the only team I don’t root for is the team we’re playing on that particular Sunday.
“Other than that, it’s just about us being the best we can be, working hard every day to put ourselves in a great position to be successful.”
Brady was in New England for 20 years, so it makes sense for him to not harbor bad feelings for everyone there.
The Bucs, meanwhile, are set to kick off against the Saints at 8:20 p.m. E.T. on Sunday night.
