Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had a rough go of it to start the 2022 season. For the first time in a long time, Brady has been in the news for controversial reasons both on and off the field.

After returning to play this season following a brief retirement, Brady has gone through a very public divorce off the field while struggling on the field as well. The Buccaneers are just 5-5 this year despite opening the season as a Super Bowl favorite, causing Brady to call out his teammates.

Brady has played a significant role in that underperformance as well, however, with just 12 touchdown passes in 10 games thus far. putting him on pace for his lowest total since he threw just 18 in his first season as a full-time starter all the way back in 2001.

Brady's former coach Bruce Arians didn't hold back when asked about what's going on with the seven-time Super Bowl champ.

Nobody is going to say that Brady was playing bad, but he was playing bad.

Arians wasn't shy about criticizing Brady during their two seasons together in 2020 and 2021, so it's not surprising to hear him call it like he sees it now that they no longer interact on a daily basis. He's always been a straight shooter with an unfiltered approach, for better or worse.
