Tom Brady Tries To Explain Why He Didn't Know It Was 4th Down Last Night

Thursday night's Bucs vs. Bears game ended with Tom Brady making a mental mistake you never see from the star QB. After failing to connect with his tight end on fourth down with 38 seconds, Brady held up four fingers and appeared to mouth “fourth down?” He appeared not to know what down it was, leading to a turnover on downs and subsequent loss.

After the game he had this response, per ESPN...

“Yeah, you’re up against the clock and you’re up against the — I knew we had to gain a chunk, so I should have been thinking more first down instead of chunk in that situation. I knew we needed a chunk and I was thinking about more yardage. It was just bad execution. We had a great opportunity there so … just didn’t execute when we needed to.”

Another coach lying taking up for a mistake by a great QB. Just admit it and move on, mistakes happen. Own them

His reaction after the play makes it obvious he didn't know the down. Does he know they film the games?
