Tom Brady made his debut as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer on Sunday in a game that started out quite well for the road team. Brady reached the end zone on quarterback sneak for the opening score, followed by an emphatic spike of the ball in celebration.
But things didn’t go his way for the rest of the game, as Brady was hit often and picked off twice while the Bucs made a lot of mental errors in a 34-23 loss at New Orleans to start the season. Brady’s second interception was a pick-six by Saints cornerback Janoris Jenkins.
Following the game, Brady spoke with the local media on a Zoom conference call to discuss what went wrong. Here is a full transcript of Brady’s press conference.

“I think certainly poor execution is what it comes down to. It’s a game of execution and obviously they made more plays than we did and I made some just bad, terrible turnovers. It’s hard to win the game turning the ball over like that. I obviously got to do a lot better job.”
