Tom Brady couldn’t stand what he was seeing on the screen: the Saints’ defense was smothering him and the Buccaneers in their Week 15 “Sunday Night Football” game.
So Brady did a Brady thing and destroyed the Microsoft Surface tablet in a fit of sideline rage.

That might have been his best throw of the night.

Seriously, though, because Brady finished Tampa Bay’s 9-0 loss with 26-for-48 passing for 214 yards. The tablet smash happened after Chauncey Gardner-Johnson intercepted Brady in the fourth quarter to seal the game.

Brady did another Brady thing after that pick: he cursed out Saints defensive coordinator Dennis Allen on the sideline. Allen was filling as head coach for Sean Payton (COVID).
“Ah, nothing, just football,” Brady said postgame about his outburst.
But let’s go with one meme at a time. Here’s how the internet made jokes in “Tom vs. Touch Screen”:
There were also a few swipes at Brady the “competitor,” of course.
Frustrated Brady yells at the refs, his teammates, and the opposing team’s coach…and now he’s throwing his tablet. What a role model. 🙄
Don’t try to tell me it’s because he’s a competitor. He’s a jerk. pic.twitter.com/2nPSSZbQgL

So we gone talk about Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. throwing a tablet on the bench?? Or is that just his “passion” for the game? Asking for a friend pic.twitter.com/o0eJuLiYe0
