Tom Brady Says He's Frustrated With Patriots' Offense

Publish date:

Although the Patriots beat the Eagles on Sunday, Tom Brady isn't hiding his frustration with the offense's struggles.

During his Monday morning appearance on WEEI's The Greg Hill Show, Brady acknowledged how the offense needs to improve after the team's low-scoring 17–10 win.

"The strength of our team is our defense and our special teams. On offense we just have to take advantage when we get opportunities and understand where our strengths lie and try and play to them–not giving any short fields, not turning the ball over and try and take advantage when we get into the red area to score touchdowns," he said. "That is kind of where our offense is. That is kind of where our team is."

He added, "It's just frustration with the offense. Just trying to grind them out. I am happy we won on the road, but at the same time just wish we would have scored more points."

New England only scored one touchdown on wide receiver Julian Edelman's third-quarter pass to Phillip Dorsett.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, Sunday marked the first time in Brady's career where another player led the team in touchdown passes while he played the entire game. He finished 26-of-47 with 216 yards.

Brady appeared down in the postgame press conference and admitted on Monday that he regularly feels frustrated during the season.

"I think I am always [frustrated]," he said. "I think it's very unique. I was very happy we won. Just wish we would have played better offensively. You have to go do it. I don't think it is about talking about it. It’s about doing it and trying to get the best we can out of our offense and see if we can be more productive and score more points."

The Patriots are 9–1 and sit in first place in the AFC East. Brady pointed out that there are six weeks left in the season and New England's offense still has time to improve.
