by | VIEW 407
Tom Brady acknowledged that Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs will be a tough challenge and noted that the threat of Hurricane Ian can't be the excuse for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers not to give their best this week.
Due to the threat of Hurricane Ian, the Buccaneers decided to move their football operations this week to Miami. On Sunday Night Football, the Buccaneers are scheduled to host the Chiefs. However, it should be noted that the NFL is monitoring the situation regarding the situation over the threat of Hurricane Ian.
Anyway, Brady underlined the Buccaneers can't be finding excuses and have to put in the work this week, "Great opponent, well-coached, great quarterback, explosive offense, great d-coordinator, a lot of talented players on defense," Brady said on SiriusXM’s Let’s Go!
podcast Monday, per Sports Illustrated. "They lost a tough one on the road, so they'll be hungry. They'll kind of have a normal week of prep. And, look, I think when you are dealing with some of the things that we're gonna have to deal with this week, there's built-in excuses that should never be excuses for anything.
We gotta approach the week with the championship attitude that no matter what we face and no matter who plays, we’re gonna have to go out there and find a way to win the game. So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s a huge test.
We’re playing at home. It’s a night game and it’s gonna be a challenge. And that’s what we should want and that’s what we should expect from one of the best teams in the league that we’re gonna face.
So we gotta be at our best. Hopefully, we can be that. And to get to 3–1 would be a great feeling after yesterday’s tough loss”.
Brady: We will everyone in our thoughts this week
Brady acknowledged that there were some challenging periods since the start of the pandemic, but having football operations moved to a different city because of the threat of a hurricane he never experienced before.
"The plan is, and things are kind of, you know, trying to adjust on the fly and preparations for an NFL game are pretty intense," Brady said of the Bucs moving to Miami for practices. "This is a little different for me. I've never had to deal with anything like this.
We had COVID for a couple years and now with this seems like a pretty intense hurricane coming our way. I don't think Tampa's probably, I don't think any place is very well suited for a hurricane to hit, but everyone in this area will be in our thoughts and prayers as we go through it.
It remains to be seen if the conditions will be met for the Buccaneers to host the Chiefs on Sunday Night Football.
