Bucs MinuteCast: Former Buccaneers QB Tom Brady Talks Regrets and Future Plans


On this episode of the Bucs MinuteCast with Dan Holmi, former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady recently revealed some regrets about his playing career in an interview. He admitted to taking some of his wins for granted and losing the joy of the game due to high expectations. Despite no longer playing, he plans to stay involved in football in a different capacity.

A Patriots and Buccaneers Legend 

Tom Brady’s career was legendary for many reasons. Multiple Super Bowl wins, multiple MVP’s, multiple Super Bowl MVP’s, and so much more.

So with a hall of fame career in the bag, what if any regrets does Brady have? Thanks to “The Pivot” podcast we now know.

“I wouldn’t say I took the success for granted. Maybe I took some of the wins for granted, like in the playing career. I mean, the reason I fell in love with football was what you gave me earlier in the show,” Brady stated. “It was never to be a champion. I love just throwing the football.”

Brady is a competition junky, he thrives on it. Although he did admit to hosts of “The Pivot” podcast Ryan Clark, Channing Crowder and Fred Taylor that expectations somewhat led to losing some of the joy of the game.

“When I got older, I would enjoy practice more than the games because I felt like I had such high expectation in the game,” Brady went on. “In practice, no one was watching. I could have a little more fun. I could be a little more lighter. Even when I look at myself later in my career, I had this face — it was a scowl — all the time. It was me just being super self-critical.”

Later in his career, after signing with the Buccaneers, Brady started realizing the joy he saw other players having was something he may have lost.

“When I see these young players, I see like Patrick [Mahomes] out there at quarterback, running around, laughing, having fun, I’m like, ‘I used to be like that!'” Brady said. “I just got too serious, but, again, I can only look back and think, ‘Okay, if I do it again, which I’ll never do it again, I would be different.’ But the reality is, you can’t. Now, next phase in life, enjoy it a little more.”

When you’re the greatest of all-time at something but can’t do it anymore, it has to be hard. But Brady isn’t just sitting back relaxing or completely leaving the game he loves. He’ll now trade a game jersey for a suit and tie and talk football instead of playing it. You know, because Tom Brady KNOWS football.
