Tom Brady broke multiple tablets in Buccaneers collapse


It looks like Tom Brady’s tablet slump last Sunday wasn’t limited to just one device.

The Buccanneers quarterback, who was caught on the sidelines destroying a Microsoft Surface in a tense Week 2 win over the Saints, actually broke two tablets, sources tell Adam Schefter of ESPN Sunday. The team also reportedly ran out of tablets after a third device was stepped on and broken, according to the report.

Emotions ran high throughout the NFC South showdown in New Orleans, which saw Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore and Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans ejected following a fight on the field , the latter receiving a one-game suspension. Brady – who has a checkered history with tablets – opened up on Monday about his “Let’s Go!” podcast explaining why he took out his frustrations on the device.

“I had a pretty bad case against this tablet, unfortunately. I think I forgot the password and couldn’t log in, so these things can be frustrating. Unfortunately the tablet just happens to get in the way, and that’s obviously why things weren’t going well yesterday, so I had to take it from the poor meaningless tablet,” Brady joked after the 20 win. -10 from Tampa Bay.

“I try to make sure I don’t throw my arm when I throw it but I was pretty pissed off yesterday. Until I get it I’m going to keep doing it. Obviously repetition being the key to the success, I need to get the perfect tablet snap, which I haven’t yet. Tune in next week to see if that happens.

While it remains to be seen whether tablets will be in jeopardy on Sunday afternoon when Brady and the Buccaneers host the Packers, the 45-year-old quarterback has already been warned by the league for his tantrums.

“I can’t launch another Surface, otherwise I get a fine. Imagine that. Imagine that,” Brady said last December.
