Brady: I don’t think I’ve ever been so pissed off after a loss
Tom Brady and the Patriots’ quest for an undefeated season came crashing down on Sunday after a loss to the Broncos, and New England’s quarterback is not pleased.
Despite the injury to all-world tight end Rob Gronkowski, Brady was more annoyed about the officiating.
"I don’t think I’ve ever been so visibly pissed off after a loss," Brady told WEEI in Boston. "And I think everyone else felt the same way."
"… there were two of them like that, there was not just the one," Brady said. "There was another one where there were offsetting penalties. I don’t know either. I know coach Belichick has spoken to the league about it and they’re making a concerted effort to officiate the game."
Brady was asked what the refs told him about the calls against Gronkowski.
"They just feel like there’s a push off. It’s obviously different than what I saw, because I’m looking at it too, but they’re the ones with the flags and they throw it. You hate to see it come down to stuff like that, but there were a lot of plays last night that just didn’t necessarily end up the way we would have hoped and there were a lot of things that we could have done better.
"We’re certainly not going to sit here and blame the officiating."
