Robert Hainsey weighs in on Tom Brady cussing out his offensive line

Robert Hainsey said he had no problem with Tom Brady cussing out the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' offensive line during Sunday's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. After the Buccaneers' unsuccessful two-minute drill, Brady unloaded on his offensive line just before the halftime.

"You're so much better than the way you're f---ing playing!" Brady shouted at his offensive line, before dropping one more F-bomb. Hainsey, a second-year center who is in his first year as the starting center, said there was nothing bad in Brady showing that he cared and that he wanted his teammates to play better.

"Everyone can call it what they want, but I want nothing else from a quarterback than that -- than the guy who's wanting to tell us what we need to do and step up. If he was just sitting over there and not get us going and not try to help us -- he wouldn't be who he is today.

I love that from him. I know we all love that from him. It might look weird on TV, but that's football. That's what you want from great teammates and great leaders, and he's the best there is," Hainsey said, per ESPN.

Brady on dropping F-bombs on his offensive line

This week, Brady addressed the situation on his podcast.

After the Buccaneers' surprise 20-18 loss to the Steelers and a pair of F-bombs dropped during the game, Brady admitted that it wasn't really a good day for him and the team. "I don't know if it's motivation, but I do think that it's a bad day when there's more f-bombs than touchdowns.

So, that was not one of my better days. But F-bombs, they used to kind of keep from showing you in those moments but now it's kind of for the world to see. So that's just the way it is." Also, Brady underlined that it's his responsibility as the leader of the team to speak up and use his voice when he feels it's needed.

"If I don't feel like we're living up to the expectations and playing up to the expectations that we're capable of, then that's my job," Brady said. "I'm a quarterback. I'm not expecting the right tackle to do it. I'm not expecting the running back to do it.

I'm not expecting the receiver to do it. I'm expecting myself to do it. I'm the one out there speaking in the huddle, calling the plays."
