The New England Patriots suffered their worst loss of the season in Week 4, falling 38-3 to the Dallas Cowboys. Former Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady was asked about the loss on his podcast Monday, where he expressed his frustration as a former player turned fan of the team.
The Patriots obviously look far different in the present day compared to when Brady was a member of the team.
And Brady detailed on his podcast, Let’s Go!, that the loss hurts as much as a fan as when he was a player for the team.
“It’s tough,” Brady told Jim Gray. “I mean, losing in the NFL’s tough. And again, for me watching a lot of football, every loss hurts.”

The transition from a great player to a fan can obviously be irritating because Brady now has no control over the end result when he had a large portion of control over the game as a player. And considering the Patriots’ rough start to the season, it seems like Brady’s frustration is growing with this team.
“So when I was in it, I didn’t necessarily realize it because I had a lot of control,” Brady added. “I now have zero control over any game. So I just watch. And it’s a hard thing cause’, you know, some things you just wanna pull your hair out and go ‘what is going on here?'”
Brady is clearly now feeling like the majority of Patriots fans are currently feeling, angry and frustrated with how dysfunctional the team appears to be at the moment.
He along with other Patriots fans will be hoping that they can turn around their season in Week 5 when they face off against the New Orleans Saints.
