The star quarterback cut a frustrated figure as the Bucs’ offensive game fell short in Week 6 matchup.
Brady was mocked on social media amid divorce rumors from his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen after he was caught on camera ranting at his offensive line with the team trailing in the second quarter on Sunday.
The 45-year-old did not hold back in the impassioned speech and postgame insisted the team hasn’t performed well all season.
Today he issued a rallying cry on his Instagram page writing: ‘Football is hard. We’re not playing like we are capable. We’re in it together. We’ll turn it around. #GoBucs.’

The latest tirade came following reports Brady, 45, and his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen, 42, have hired divorce lawyers
Brady’s rant at his own team in the 20-18 defeat on Sunday sparked the social media mockery from fans asking if regrets ‘unretiring’ from the NFL.
The latest tirade came following reports he and his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen have hired divorce lawyers.
Some have speculated that the couple’s issue involves Brady’s decision to return to the NFL after a brief off-season retirement, and Bundchen has made it clear that she has sacrificed for their family and his career.
The supermodel, who has not attended any Bucs games this season, took the lead on hiring an attorney and the NFL star followed while ‘figuring out what to do,’ according to People.
Bundchen, 42, and Brady, 45, have reportedly hired divorce lawyers 13 years after saying ‘I do’ in 2009, according to multiple reports.
‘You’re so much better than the way you’re f***ing playing,’ Brady was picked up saying by the FOX television cameras.
Not all audio could be heard from the footage but Brady did drop another f-bomb in his angry talk at his teammates.

Only last week Brady, who threw a tablet to the ground in a sideline meltdown last month, opened up about the ‘intense stress’ he faces on the latest episode of his SiriusXM podcast.
He has spoken about his parents and children on the program, but has yet to mention his spouse in three episodes as reports continue swirl about a potential split.
On his podcast, Brady did stress the importance of work-life balance, while continuing to omit any mention of his wife.
‘And I think there was a part of us where we felt like, you know, suck it up and deal with it,’ Brady said. ‘And I think you realize that there’s a lot, especially in today’s day and age, with how fast things are happening in life for all of us, and the amount of responsibilities we have.
The couple has two children together — a 9-year-old daughter, Vivian Lake, and 12-year-old son Benjamin Rein – in addition to Brady’s 15-year-old son Jack, who lives with his mother, actress Bridget Moynahan, in New York
‘And also, you know, I think there’s part of us that are held to a certain standard that we’re almost inhuman,’ he continued. ‘You know, you hear this a lot from people that say, you know, ‘I’m only human.’ We are only human. We’re not inhuman. We’re not immune to a lot of the things that just life brings us. We’re not robots.
‘You wake up every day trying to do the best you can do, understanding that life has its stresses and to deal with them with a great support system and understanding and having some introspectiveness in your life where you can look at yourself and say, where do I need to commit my time and energy to?
‘And how can I lessen some of the stress and lessen the burden on me so that I can be good for people around me? So those are all different things that you work at. I worked at them when I was 20. There was a lot of things that I was going through when I was 20. There was a lot of things I was going through in my 30s.’
Brady then added, ‘there’s things I’m going through in my 40s,’ but again, neglected to mention his wife or any reported marital issues.
‘And it’s life,’ Brady said. ‘And you learn to grow up and you learn to deal with life. And that’s what we’re all trying to do. We’re trying to do it the best way we can.’
Brady insisted the Bucs haven’t performed well all season and vowed to ‘turn’ things around
