Bucs’ Tom Brady cools down on Beefs With Eagles

The last NFC team to defeat a Tom Brady-led team in the postseason is still chasing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback.

Brady wants a chance to bury at least one of those memories from losing Super Bowl LII to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Jan. 16 in the wild card round. He didn’t rule out the possibility of making up for his missed catch as a member of the New England Patriots in this 2018 Super Bowl. He talked about it on his Let’s Go! podcast on Monday, January 10th.

“I have to redeem myself, so expect to see that eventually,” Brady told host Jim Gray.

“I get reminded of this game every time I see an Eagles fan,” Brady added.

Whether or not the Bucs have the crease in the game plan for Sunday against the Eagles remains a mystery. Brady hinted that it could be a hoax. However, Brady said he doesn’t “discuss strategy” on the podcast.

“I already made the dropped pass joke so you can keep it to yourself for the rest of the week,” Brady tweeted.

Brady also addressed a perceived beef with former Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, who made a catch that game. The play became known as the “Philly Special”.

The Bucs might not see the same trick play on Sunday, but the Bucs’ top-flight run defense will be put to the test with the league’s No. 1 rushing attack, led by quarterback Jalen Hurts.

Brady knows Eagles fans will still give him a hard time over his failed catch, but he admits he didn’t know those fans still snub over the handshake.

“No. I’m not. I’m not,” Brady told reporters on Thursday, January 13. “Nevertheless, I shook hands with Nick a lot. I have a lot of respect for Nick.”

However, skipping a handshake with Foles happened again when the Bucs lost to the Chicago Bears in 2020. Brady picked up heat for it again. He admitted to reporters Thursday that he’s not perfect.

“I’m trying to be a good sport as much as I can,” Brady said. “I know it doesn’t always seem like it because I’m a little bit pissed out there sometimes, but mostly I’m trying to be a good sport.”

Brady has mostly enjoyed pristine weather for home games in Tampa Bay during his two-year stint, but that could end on Sunday.

According to Weather.com, Tampa is having rain, wind and thunderstorms and temperatures in the 60’s for the Jan. 16 forecast. That means Brady and the Bucs will be adjusting to playing on a wet field with a wet ball for only the second time this season. They played in the rain in New England on October 3 when Brady threw for 269 yards but no touchdowns.

“I’ve played in it a lot over the years,” Brady told the media on Thursday. “First you have to deal with it with some mental toughness. Physical preparation is not much different. We haven’t had much rain this year. We did that in the Patriot game, so we’re a bit used to it.
