During the latest episode of the “Let’s Go!” podcast, Jim Gray asked the Bucs QB about his brief press conference appearance on Sunday and a candid Brady admitted that it’s tough for him to speak to reporters after tough losses because he’s still emotional about the game he just played.
Press conferences after a loss are like co-workers emailing you before you’ve had your coffee… I mean I don’t drink coffee, but I imagine that’s what it’s like.. https://t.co/9VfpXqr3Pl @JimGrayOfficial @SIRIUSXM pic.twitter.com/cGvJgCNtOt

“Yeah, I think that’s a real challenge for me, especially as I’ve gotten older because the expectations are so high,” “I think when you win it’s a relief and when you lose it’s a real disappointment. So sometimes you’re missing the joy in this and I have to be reminded of the joy of playing. And that takes a little perspective, but it’s hard when you’re in the fight.
“When you’re in the middle of the fight and it’s the seventh round of the fight, it’s hard to — you know — take a step back ’cause you feel like you’re still — you know — you want to go out there and slug it out again. So, you know, I wish there was a lot of great to come from losing and there is when you take a couple of days. But sometimes when you catch me on a Monday, you really piss me off. Just kidding, you don’t really piss me off.”
