Ryan Fitzpatrick buries Tom Brady, Bucs after appearing to crush beef
Ryan Fitzpatrick was sweet. .. and then sour.
Despite appearing to squash his beef with Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, with the two embracing before Tampa’s “Thursday Night Football” matchup against the Ravens, Fitzpatrick was put on Brady’s team after suffered its third straight loss, 27-22.
“I didn’t want to believe it was coming to this game,” said Fitzpatrick, who is now an analyst for the Prime Video broadcast of “TNF.”
“I tried to drink the Kool-Aid. I thought they were going to come out and do it. But this offense is broken. They’re absolutely broken now. They’re lost. It was hard to see today because this is not the Bucs of old. And I don’t see no fix anytime soon. Two drives, and then it fell off a cliff again.”
Fitzpatrick, who played two seasons in Tampa Bay in 2017 and 2018, has spoken on several occasions about how Brady would never shake his hand after the two played during their respective careers. The former officer told the “Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz” that he believed to be “mother” Brady was upset that a mystery team would stick with the quarterback.
In an interview on “Pardon My Take,” Fitzpatrick later stated that Brady “had no respect” for him and that he “annoyed him.” [him] so much.”
The two sides, however, appeared more than cordial before the game, embracing each other for a hug and having what appeared to be a friendly chat with fellow analyst Richard Sherman that was caught on Amazon cameras.
Still, Fitzpatrick was highly critical of the Buccaneers’ offense after the game ended. Tampa Bay was again unable to run the football, amassing 44 total yards to Baltimore’s 231. Brady threw for 325 yards and a touchdown, but the offense still only produced 22 points and lost to Lamar Jackson’s Ravens at home.
The Bucs have now lost three straight, Brady’s first since 2002. At 3-5, Tampa Bay has two more home games on the horizon, but next up is against Los Angeles Rams that knocked them out of the playoffs last season.
