Sunday’s Buccaneer-Saints matchup was a memorable one for two reasons. First time – Tom Brady closes for the first time in 15 years. The last time it happened was on December 10, 2006, when the Patriots led by Brady beat the Miami Dolphins 21-0. Monday – Brady was not penalized for mocking New Orleans’s fringes.
Tampa . Bay lost to the Saints for the fourth time in a row in the regular season since brave cat was their QB. The Saints defense was particularly strong and resolute on Sunday night. They managed to stop Brady for the third time in his 22-year career. Brady throws 26/48 in 214 yards with a intercept.
Brady vents his anger on the sidelines of Saints
The Saints defense put so much pressure on the Buccaneers’ QB that he couldn’t connect any passes to his teammates. In the end, Brady unleashed an interception to the safety of Saints CJ Gardner-Johnson, prompting a backlash from QB. He was caught on camera saying – “Go F**K yourself” to the Saints coach on their sideline.
This incident has caused mixed reactions from fans on twitter. Some say the NFL has a biased mocking rule because Brady is not given a punishment for his actions. There have been various incidents in previous games where players were penalized for the smallest actions. And since Brady was not called to his action, this raised questions about the NFL’s taunt rule. Officials on the field did not seem to have a clear opinion on what action should be considered an act of mockery.
Some believe that the NFL is prejudiced against Tom Brady because he was not penalized for his taunts. The NFL must put in place proper taunt rules because there have been a lot of unnecessary punishments given due to unclear taunt rules.
