Tom Brady has experienced a challenging season in a number of ways. The Buccaneers’ season has been full of ups and downs; in October last year, they lost three straight games. Brady too announced his divorce from ex-wife supermodel Gisele Bündchen in the same month. Brady’s third season with the Buccaneers has also been marked by a number of off-the-field challenges and changes, including his highly publicized divorce from Gisele Bündchen, which was particularly harsh for the 45-year-old quarterback.

Tom Brady: ‘Focus on what your job is’

The NFL quarterback discussed how he’s balancing work and his personal life after splitting from his ex-wife of 13 years during Monday’s episode of his Sirius XM show, Let’s Go! 

“I think, you know, we all are going through stuff, you know, we’re people, and we’re all going through stuff, and obviously, we’re all professionals, and we wanna show up to work and do our best.”

And when you’re a professional, that’s what being a professional means, Brady said to Gray. “You show up every day with the best possible attitude you can have,” he further added. “You try to compartmentalize things and really focus on what your job is.”

Tom Brady, who is currently second in the NFL, with 4,610 passing yards on the season, has once again led Tampa Bay back to the playoffs despite those off-the-field incidents and a slow start for the Buccaneers on the field. “That’s what life’s about.” According to Brady, overcoming the year’s difficulties and eventually coming together for a common goal required a lot of resiliency. For this reason, he enjoys sports. Brady added,

“I always say, do you care about your team and the people on your team? And do you care about the mission? And that’s what makes a great teammate to me.”
