Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey let out his frustrations after Week 3's 21-19 loss to the Miami Dolphins by slamming his notebooks and tablet on the table in front of him. It was a clip that then went viral across social media platforms.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, who did something similar recently, shared an insightful response to the whole situation.
On his "Let's Go!" podcast with co-host Jim Gray, Brady mentioned that he's "not the only adult in the entire league that’s throwing temper tantrums," and thanked Dorsey for taking him off the hook. It was only one week earlier that an irate Brady was filmed spiking tablets on the sidelines during Tampa Bay's Week 2 win over the New Orleans Saints.
It was what Brady dove into later on that was the most interesting, though. He explained that playing in the NFL comes with all sorts of different emotions and it's hard not to let those emotions out at times. The 45-year-old had a clear message for anyone that thinks the behavior is childish in nature.

Dorsey shared a similar sentiment in his comments on Monday. He spoke of how the game against the Dolphins had a playoff atmosphere and it was frustrating to watch his team finish on the wrong end of the final score. The ending was especially disappointing, as the Bills didn't even get a final play off as the clock ran out following a catch made over the middle.
That kind of fierce competitiveness has led Brady to much success in the NFL, but Dorsey said his outburst is something he is going to learn from and correct moving forward.
