Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has been spotted in New York following his team’s 20-10 win over the New Orleans Saints. He was there to cheer on his son, John “Jack” Moynahan, who was playing in a football game.
Jack’s team was playing Monday afternoon. The 45-year-old rushed to the Big Apple to watch his son do his thing. According to a ‘People’ source, the seven-time Super Bowl champion cheered on his son while remaining alone during the game.
The source said:
“He and a friend were left alone. His other kids weren’t with him this time. He looked smiling and was shouting to encourage Jack.”
The quarterback also flew to New York to attend his son’s practice a few weeks ago as well, according to a ‘People’ source.
The source said:
“Tom was in good spirits and chatted with all the parents. He flew into the scrum.”
This comes at a time when Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s marriage is said to be on the rocks. This all stems from the fact that the 45-year-old didn’t retire a few months ago. The quarterback reportedly agreed to retire from the NFL to spend more time with his wife and children, only to revisit that idea after just 40 days.
This led to Gisèle leaving the house she shares with the quarterback and taking the children with her. This breakup would also be the reason Brady took an 11-day break with the Buccaneers during the preseason. He did it to work through his family issues.
Have Brady’s off-field issues affected his football?
How could he not, right? Arguing with a family member is rough enough, but when it comes to your wife and the way things went pear-shaped, it’s no wonder the 45-year-old doesn’t does not look alike.
Against the Saints on Sunday, the seven-time Super Bowl winner seemed to have a rather short fuse and was often frustrated and angry during the game. Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe said on “Undisputed” that if anyone thinks there’s no correlation between the two, they’re wrong.
“Anyone who doesn’t think what happens off the pitch doesn’t impact the way Brady plays and behaves on the pitch is sadly mistaken.”
It’s unclear if the quarterback can separate the two and find his best football, but it’s clearly taking its toll on him and rightfully so.
Hopefully all goes well, but at the moment times are tough in the Brady household.
