Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeSean McCoy revealed Tom Brady cussed out Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu during the 2020 Super Bowl. The Buccaneers ended up beating the Chiefs 31-9 but the moment that marked the Super Bowl was the heated exchange between Brady and Mathieu.
Mathieu said after the game he didn't expect to receive the comment he did from Brady but refused to reveal what it was. A year later, McCoy came out and revealed what Brady actually told Mathieu. "Tom said, 'Well, f--- you," McCoy revealed during his appearance on the I Am Athlete Podcast.
Brady aims back-to-back Super Bowl wins
After leading the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl win in his first season with the team, Brady led the Bucs to their second consecutive postseason appearance. The Buccaneers beat the Carolina Panthers 41-17 last Sunday to clinch the No.
2 seed in their division. “In the end, it’s a great achievement to get the two seed,” said Brady, who finished with a career-high 5,316 passing yards as he enters his 19th postseason. “It just felt good to win today.
Whatever happened with other teams, you can’t ever really control those things. Even for the next game – I don’t know, what, you’re worried about two games from now? I’m not worried about two games from now.
I’m worried about one game from now, which is the Eagles. I don’t care if the Rams would have won. That’s alright. We still got the Eagles, and that’s gonna be the biggest game of our season, and if we win – whoever we play, wherever we play, we’re still going and that’s what we wanna do”.
After Antonio Brown was released by the Buccaneers, Brady said he was hoping Brown would receive the help he needed. "Yeah, I mean that's obviously a difficult situation, and I think we all want him to -- I think everybody should hopefully do what they can to help him in ways that he really needs it," said Brady, per CBS Sports.
"We all love him, we care about him deeply. We want to see him be at his best, and unfortunately it won't be with our team. We have a lot of friendships that will last and again I think the most important thing about football are the relationships with your friends and your teammates and they go beyond the field.
I think everyone should be very compassionate and empathetic toward some very difficult things that are happening."
