Nick Foles not miffed after being snubbed by Tom Brady

After last night’s win over the Buccaneers, Bears quarterback Nick Foles looked a little like John Travolta in Pulp Fiction. Foles admits that he was watching and waiting for Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady to meet Foles on the field.

I didn’t realize the camera was on me,” Foles told Dan Patrick on Friday. “I was looking for him real quick. We’ll find a time down the road.”

The last time they met, Brady didn’t visit with Foles, either. At Super Bowl LII, however, things were a little chaotic. Last night, they weren’t.

Last night, unless Brady had suddenly decided to fully comply with all COVID-19 protocols and recommendations, Brady wanted to get off the field as quickly as he could after a stunning failure of situational awareness kept him from realizing that fourth down was indeed fourth down. In so doing, he definitely create the perception/reality of poor sportsmanship.

  1. Players aren’t supposed to gather, shake hands, and exchange jerseys after games at the moment, correct?

    Or, am I misunderstanding that protocol?

    If that IS the protocol, why are we saying players that adhere to it are poor sports?

    Didn’t Mahomes & Gilmore just get criticized for embracing after a game?

    These guys can’t win.

  2. After the Patriots last win, Tom Brady stood there without a mask and accepted hand shakes, hugs, and congratulations from each player from the opposing team. He was happy. He wasn’t happy after last nights loss. I don’t think he suddenly became aware of the Covid protocols. Actually, no players should be embracing after the games, but I don’t think the snub had anything to do with health and safety. I thought it was just poor sportsmanship. But I also remember some coach, years ago saying “you show me a good loser, and I’ll show you a loser”. Lol. Brady has six rings. I think I can find someone else to criticize.

    Technically you’re right. They’re not supposed to, but they do anyway. The point here is that Brady always meets (even this year) for a handshake when he wins. He rarely does so after a loss. He just got called out on it this time because it was Foles again who he infamously snubbed after the Super Bowl loss to the Eagles.

    But the tradition of QB's meeting after the game has continued. You can bump fists and at least acknowledge each other. Brady didn't do that. There was no attempt by Brady to do so.
    I understand he made a huge Boo Boo,…. but be a man Tom. Instead of running off in embarrassment.

  5. Well, didn’t they just play and had exposure to other players during the game and can’t even get a split second elbow or fist bump after the game? I think it’s poor gamesmanship in his part.

  6. Brought up in “The Patriot Way” philosophy, which means handshakes only after wins, and run off the field without congratulating the other team after losses.

    Not shocking at this point after so many years of this type of “good winner, bad loser” sportsmanship.

  7. It’s a bad look and a particularly bad look from a guy who has had so much success in his career. I get that he hates losing but that’s a part of the game. If he can’t even lose a regular season game without storming off in huff what kind of guy is he really?

  8. It wasn’t a good look, but it still looked better than holding up 4 fingers after the ball had been turned over on downs.

  9. People are clueless. Its well documented that after the SB loss, Brady found multiple Eagles players in/around the locker room, including Foles, and congratulated them. That works fine for me.

  10. I also remember some coach, years ago saying “you show me a good loser, and I’ll show you a loser”

    While that is a good sound-bite, it isn’t true at all. Some of the best quarterbacks in NFL history handled losing quite well, shaking hands with the winners.

  11. Brady showed his true self, poor looser, disrespect foe the other QB. His offensive line should have screamed at him for his four finger action and not making the play as he did them. Now he has to play as others in the league and he pouts and runs off the field for all to witness.

  12. Tompa Bay is a sore loser everone knows it. He was embarrassed that lost rrack of the downs and left the field in a rush.

  13. It’s no secret that Brady is a poor loser. Blowing up card games and breaking ping pong tables were par for the course. So, it’s not surprising he high tailed it to he locker room.

    I always loved that fire when he was on the Pats. Probably makes him better at his job. Doesn’t mean I would want to hang out with him, though.

  14. Why do guys like Brady and lebron get a pass?!?I know damn well Nick would have still met Brady if he lost. Just complete lack of respect and a dbag move.whats new though!!??!

  15. I read on this forum all of the time the criticism of not only the NFL in general, but also specific players for not following the Covid protocols. So why the criticism of Brady now? Isn’t the protocol for the post game to avoid contact the other team as much as possible? Brady did nothing wrong.

  16. You can smear your sweaty body all over each other, but shaking hands that’s a no no.

    The hypocrisy and lies continue.

  17. Tom was just clearly”pissed off” over the loss and he should be. The penalties were ridiculous and have been a problem. BA needs to fix that FAST. As far as the comments about Tom Brady being a whiner who cares? He’s still sitting with 6 rings and those comments must be coming from fans who’s teams he beat. Realistically this year is their get to know one another year. I expect great things next year. Personally the coaching seems bad and Tom just had a brain cramp at the end of the game. He’s allowed that. On to Green Bay

  18. So a guy so committed to his craft hates losing.

    Big deal.

    Gove me a quarterback who has six SB rings and hates losing, over a QB who loses but is a good sport, any day.

    When was the last time you heard a fan say “Damn, my quarterback is a great sport!”???

    Maybe he didn’t realize it was the end of the 4th quarter…”

    BEST COMMENT EVER! Well played, Covid-21. Well played.

    Brady always flees when he loses. The ultimate sore loser

    Maybe, maybe…

    You personally almost never saw that occur as he pantsed you’re Steelers every game over the last 20 years.
