Tom Brady answers if there is hope for Buccaneers to turn the season around

Tom Brady feels the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have "a lot of quality players" and that they can still turn their season around. After starting the year with a 2-0 record, the Buccaneers have lost four of their past five games and now stand at 3-4.
Through the first seven games of the season, the Buccaneers are 22nd in total yards and 26th in points scored. Also, the Buccaneers are sixth in passing yards but dead last in rushing yards. “Yeah, I think there’s always hope, and then there’s reality.
I think you really focus on what the reality of the situation is, and that’s we haven’t played our best football. We have a lot of quality players and we’ve got to do a better job playing well. You’ve got to take it one week at a time.
Every game’s different. Things could change after this game, too, and things could change the week after that and the week after that and the week after that. So, nothing in this game is given to you. You have to go earn everything and I think that’s the competitive nature of it.
They’re good on the other side of the ball, too. We’ve just got to go find a way to get a win," Brady said, per Pro Football Talk.
Brady on if the Buccaneers can turn the page on TNF
On Thursday Night Football, the Buccaneers are hosting the Baltimore Ravens.
Going into the game, Brady is hoping the team finds its rhythm against the Ravens. “I mean, like I said, I hope we go play better and execute well and do our jobs at a high level. That’s obviously the expectation for all of us, that’s what we’re working toward this week," Brady added.
The Buccaneers' poor form prompted some suggesting that Brady may pull a mid-season retirement. This week, Brady addressed those rumors. On his podcast, Brady underlined that he is fully committed to the Buccaneers. “I said last week that there’s no immediate retirement in my future.
There was a retirement in the past, but I moved on from that. But certainly not, you know, I’ve never, you know, I made a commitment to this team and I love this team and I love this organization. I told them in March I was playing and I’ve never quit on anything in my life," Brady said.
