Tom Brady: Stewing over Chiefs loss for weekend “kind of sucked”

AP

The only real silver lining for the Patriots after their opening week thrashing was that they had a couple of extra days to rest after losing to Kansas City last Thursday.

But for quarterback Tom Brady, that made it worse.

During his weekly appearance on WEEI, Brady said having to stew over the 42-27 loss to the Chiefs for a weekend was tough.

“It’s probably easier when you’re getting right back to work,” Brady said, via Mike Reiss of ESPN.com. “It actually kind of sucked having three extra days to think about it and re-watch the game.

“The good thing about football season when it’s Sunday to Sunday, is Monday you kind of watch it and then by Tuesday you’re already moving on to the next team. I’ve kind of moved on to the next team, but we haven’t really done that formally as a team. We’re doing that today.”

Making it tougher for Brady was the fact that by every empirical measure, he was outplayed by Alex Smith, which will make watching the film harder. He was 16-of-36 passes for 267 yards, and he talked after the game about not being pleased with their lack of resilience.

“It kind of sits with us a little bit longer, but maybe it’s good to sit with us longer and continue for us to evaluate and nitpick and so forth. So it’s probably a couple of extra days in weeks like this as opposed to a normal seven-day week,” he said. “I wish we were 1-0, but we’re not. We have to do something about it. It’s part of the challenge of the football season, Mental toughness is a real thing. . . .

“It’s understanding how competitive all these games are. There’s no easy game. Every team is going to bring it, certainly against us.”

Of course, no one doubts their ability to bounce back from a bad game, since they have a pretty good track record of doing just that.

    The Patriots offense was out of sync. The Patriots defense was in disarray. They needed the three extra days of practice time to get a clue.

    You know only 1 team has ever won the Super Bowl going undefeated. Losses are inevitable. It’s all about how teams respond to them.

    Bright spot for the Patriots is the offense was dismal and still scored 27 points pretty easily in 3 quarters. Defense was scary bad though.

    Probably shouldn’t be talking when the Colts got waxed by the LA Rams.

  4. I follow the Pats pretty close. I never understood the talk from the media of them going undefeated. Sure I agree they look like one of the best teams going in to this year, but I don’t get why teams like KC, Oakland, Baltimore and Pittsburgh weren’t consider as competitive given what they did last year and in the off season.

  5. Last time the Pats lost in Week #1 (2014) they won the Superbowl that year. Last time the Pats go beat by KC (also 2014) they went on to win 10 of the next 11 games. Nothing to see here unless they lay another egg next week in the Big Easy.

  6. I guess it’s time for the annual “stick a fork in Brady/The Pats” festival.

    Yeah, they didn’t look great. Yeah, they’re missing a lot of key players from last year. But we supposedly had a monster offseason, and the results arent there. Yet.

    Five championships allows me the luxury of letting Bill and company try and figure things out.

    Ha! Your Colts may well be the worst team in the NFL! Even the Jets are laughing

  8. Sad to see my Pats lose, happy to see Chiefs and Smith step it up. Makes the league better. Congrats Chiefs. ~ Patriots fan.

  9. I think the Patriots are on the decline now. They had their 16 years of Championship moments. There are 31 other teams in the league. Time for teams like the Chiefs to get a Super Bowl ring!

  10. Well here we go again 😂

    Look im a die hard pats fan & EVERY SINGLE TIME I’ve doubted belichick & brady i have only been proved wrong very badly so im just gonna trust BB knows what hes doing and only say this

    WE’RE ON TO NEW ORLEANS…..🤔

    Offense was scary bad. Two 4th and 1 stone jobs and Brady missing targets all over. KC’s D was “scary bad”, too, when you think about it.

    NE led 27-21 heading into the 4th.

    I refuse to believe losing Nink, Logan Ryan, an aging and limited Chris Long or a Colts 49 points allowed Jabal Sheard, somehow means the D got horrible over night after being the #1 rated D last year.

    The scheme was wrong and the personnel deployed for it was wrong. Talk to BB and Patricia on that one.

    It happens.

    I’ll wait for McClellin to come back and look for better usage from here on out. The D will be there, will Brady and his pouting be gone in time?

  12. The Patriots loss was more so on their defense. Yes the Patriots offense did not have an A game but 27 points is pretty productive. And should be enough points to win the game. Now that being said the offense stalled out in the 4th quarter and they were shut out. However, the defense gave up 42 points which is unacceptable. You are not going to win very many games if you give up more than 30 points let only 42. So defensively the Patriots have a lot of work to do. Just as a quick example, The Chiefs got creative with the play calling and created clear mismatches. Such as getting Kareem Hunt covered by a linebacker on his 78 yard touchdown. From a coaching perspective, most linebackers lack the speed to cover a back or speed receiver in space.

    honestly…I feel bad for New Orleans…..
    ________________________________________
    Me too. Especially since the NFL scheduled the Saint to have a Monday night game so they have fewer days to prepare…….like most of the patriots opponents. Just like every season.

  14. Worst completion percentages after Week 1:

    Blake Bortles 52.4%
    Deshaun Watson 52.2%
    Russell Wilson 51.9%
    Andy Dalton 51.6%
    Scott Tolzien 50.0%
    Tom Brady 44.4%

    Ouch, I don’t think I’ve ever seen Brady last in anything.

  15. For those writing the obituary for Brady’s career, dream on. He has at least 5 more years in the NFL with his diet, training regimen, and Italian HGH. In fact on Thursday, Brady passes went further than noodle arm Alex Smith’s who is 7 years younger. The Saints better get ready for the 2014 Cincinnati treatment.

    Tommy gettin old.. It creeps up and hits you before you know it..

    ———-

    For all the people writing off Brady, you probably didn’t watch the game. It wasn’t his fault. He threw the ball pretty well and had lots of time. Still has the deep ball. Coverage was very good.

  17. Recall that, in the blink of an eye, Manning went from setting nearly every passing record in the world to not being able to complete a pass of more than 10 yards. I’m nowhere close to writing Brady off yet, but it’s a reminder that Father Time hits like a ton of bricks without any warning signs.

    One thing I am sure about though: those who think Brady will play 5 more years are not thinking rationally.

  18. Man, Brady sure looked old. He looks to be down the Manning sunset of his career. They’re going to need a major running game and do some serious contemplation about their porous defense. Amazing how aging swoops in like a thief in the night.

  19. Good thing their division is horrible. The only question is whether they get home field advantage throughout playoffs or only first round bye after winning division. We’ll know a lot more about what kind of team they have after the first four games.

  20. The cheater looked really old against the Chiefs. He aged 10 years during each quarter. Started as a 20 year old and ended up looking 50 at the end of the game.

    This is going to be delicious – this jerk is going to have a tough season.

    Will he blame it on his diet? ROFL!

    Save the #1 scoring and Super Bowl winning defense from last year. Ok.

    19-0 they said 😀 They better pray with all these additions they don’t become that Eagles dream team a few years back!

    The Patriots just won two of the last 3 Super Bowls and have been to the last 6 straight AFC Championship games.

    Everything that happens this year is a bonus! They aren’t the Eagles!

    You didn’t even watch a min of the game obviously so how would you know.

    Well he was the last QB to win the Super Bowl and he will be the Last QB to win 5 or more Super Bowls, so sometimes he is last.

    Sounds like Brady took it far better than their 11 year old fan base. Going on the road should be a bit of a challenge.

    I think part of the goal of winning is to build your fan base. Teams with old diehard fans are teams like Philly or Cleveland that never win.
