There is very clearly a lot going on for Tom Brady with the recent struggles of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the very public divorce from Gisele Bündchen being finalized — much to the chagrin of Dick Vitale.
“There’s a lot of professionals in life that go through things that they deal with at work and they deal with at home,” said Brady via Ryan Glasspiegel of the New York Post. “And obviously the good news is it’s a very amicable situation and I’m really focused on two things: taking care of my family and certainly my children, secondly doing the best job I can to win football games.
“You focus at work when it’s time to work and then when you come home you focus on the priorities that are at home. All you can do is the best you can do. That’s what I’ll continue to do as long as I’m working and as long as I’m being a dad.”
It is easy for Tom Brady to say that he keeps work separate from personal issues, but it is far more difficult to actually accomplish that.
He has been criticized constantly for outside factors seemingly taking away from his performance on the football field, and these criticisms will continue to come until the Buccaneers start winning.
Hopefully now that the divorce is finalized, he will be able to help the Buccaneers turn their season around.
He will get an opportunity to do so against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 9, who have had their fair share of struggles this year after winning the Super Bowl last season.
