Tom Brady showed his apparent frustration on the field Sunday, berating his teammates to “do their jobs” after a failed drive to end the first quarter. While Brady was more composed when he took the podium following Sunday’s 31-20 loss to the Jaguars, he wasn’t shy about expressing his dissatisfaction with the day’s proceedings.

In addition to numerous miscues, such as Sony Michel dropping an easy first-down conversion at the end of the first quarter and Le'Adrian Waddle allowing Dante Fowler Jr. to blow past him for a strip-sack in the fourth, the Patriots’ shallow receiving corp was virtually shutdown. New England wideouts combined for just 11 catches and 104 yards.

“It’s a long year,” Brady told reporters. “You have a bad day against a good team. That’s a recipe for losing. We certainly had a bad day. You’ve got to learn from bad days. Things just don’t magically happen. You’ve got to make them happen. All of us have to have more urgency to do things right more often over the course of practices and games, and then it’s a matter of us going out and executing. But it was us. First couple of drives, it was us."

Perhaps Brady’s most biting comments came when he asked about the heat. For those who don’t know, the game time temperature in Jacksonville was 97 degrees.

“I actually don’t think it was that bad,” Brady said to the press. “At least I didn’t feel it. It was definitely warm –– warmer than what we’ve had –– but it was a lot like training camp this year. I think it was more the execution. They executed really well, we didn’t. I think it’s really that simple. If we want the outcomes to change, we’ve got to do things a lot differently.”

Fortunately for Brady, help might be on the way. The Patriots will reportedly bring back Kenny Britt for a workout this week.

Never mind.
