The Rare Times Tom Brady Was Seriously Embarrassed

PGA Tour

Ripped Trousers

Brady competed in The Match for charity against his rival, Peyton Manning. The pair teamed up with Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods in the showpiece event. Manning entertained the masses with his trash talk and wisecracks. Meanwhile, Brady cut a more muted figure but deserves credit for his participation.

But there was a moment that seriously embarrassed Brady. He hit a phenomenal birdie from 150 yards after a horrible start. Then he bent over to pick the ball out of the hole. His pants immediately ripped in front of the camera and forced him to change his outfit. Golf has never been better than at this moment (via USA Today Sports).

Carnival Dance

There’s a stereotype that white men can’t dance and Brady did nothing to change this. In 2011, he traveled to Brazil for Carnival and had a great time. He danced in front of the world but his moves became an unwanted talking point. The attention seriously embarrassed Brady because he was just having a good time.

Unfortunately, it’s not easy being in the public eye because people will analyze and dissect every move. This was when Pony Tail Brady existed and his outfit doesn’t help either. Some fans wish he replicated this dance in the endzone during a game. It would have been a hilarious moment of self-awareness. But he never did (via CS Monitor).

Meme Face

The Buccaneers played the Bears in 2021 when age finally caught up with Brady. We’re not talking about his diminished physical ability but the mental aspect of the sport. He admitted that he lost track of his thought process during this game. It also resulted in an expression that instantly became a meme.

Sky Sports

“You guys remember this one,” Brady said. “Fourth quarter, last chance in Chicago. I thought it was the second-to-last chance in Chicago, but not. I don’t think I’ve ever been as confused as I am at this moment right here. Look at that face.” Trust us, Tom, everybody saw that face (via Fox Sports).

Men’s Journal

Uggs Spokesman

These days Brady doesn’t publically endorse many products. Perhaps his experience with Uggs traumatized him. They paid him enough money but the aftermath seriously embarrassed him. Brady claimed that he grew up wearing the shoes but we’re not sure if we believe him (via Town & Country).

Marca

“I think style is being so comfortable and confident in what you’re wearing,” Brady said in an interview. “That’s what style is, ’cause everybody’s got a different style. There’s nothing more comfortable or leisurely than having a pair of Ugg slippers on in the house.” Maybe he’s got a point but we’re not sure we’ll follow in his footsteps.

Body-Shaming

NFL athletes are some of the most impressive physical human specimens on the planet. But some people had the temerity to body-shame Brady in 2018. He went to the beach with his ex-wife, Gisele Bundchen. A shirtless Brady revealed less physical definition than expected (via Men’s Health).

Fox News

This seriously embarrassed him and it wasn’t fair because he is an elite athlete. It’s safe to say that the Patriots’ strength and conditioning unit knows more about peak performance than most Americans. But they still took to social media to sneer at his body. Toned muscles don’t mean that a player is in the best shape for football.

That Hat

Brady continued his long hair trend into the 2011 season. However, eyebrows arose when he attended the Kentucky Derby. The quarterback’s fashion choices became a topic of conversation. His long hair fell beneath a Panama hat and he also wore a questionable suit. We applaud the audacity of his decision-making but it didn’t age well.

Sports Illustrated

This is the face of the most confident man on the planet. Most ordinary Americans wouldn’t dream of wearing this look because they wouldn’t pull it off. In truth, Brady doesn’t succeed either but he’s the greatest quarterback of all time. Whenever people mention Brady’s hat, this is what they’re talking about (via Boston.com).

Interception Machine

Many people called for Brady to retire after this atrocious display against the Saints in 2020. He had one of the worst games of his career in his first season with Tampa Bay. This may not be surprising because the veteran had a new playbook and teammates. In the end, they won a Super Bowl to end the season so it didn’t matter.

Sporting News

But this was seriously embarrassing for Brady because he threw three interceptions. Drew Brees made him look like garbage in their final on-field meeting. Brees also regained the record for aerial touchdowns from Brady during the game. This isn’t a day that Brady wants to remember (via e-Radio).

CNBC

Crypto Bro

Brady joined the ranks of people who invested in cryptocurrencies. He poured millions into notorious crypto firm FTX and may lose everything after the company failed. The quarterback won’t be the first celebrity to fall foul of dodgy crypto schemes. But nobody likes it when their investment flops.

Bloomberg

However, Brady has a massive $650 million fortune so it may not be a serious issue for him. Nonetheless, it made him look foolish in public and that’s not fun. At least he didn’t ask the Bucs to pay him in Bitcoin as Odell Beckham Jr. did with the Rams. It could have been much worse (via Daily Mirror).

Worst Start

2022 seriously embarrassed Brady because he suffered the worst start of his legendary career. This wasn’t all on him but he received a lot of criticism. That’s because he missed a lot of practice due to his issues during the preseason. The Bucs made a 3-5 start including a three-game losing streak.

Marca

This was the first time that Brady went under .500 in his career. Meanwhile, he became the most-sacked quarterback ever too. However, that’s because of his longevity so it’s not the worst statistic ever. Luckily, the Bucs played in a horrible division and could probably have lost 10 games (via USA Today Sports).

New York Times

2010 Divisional Round

The Patriots met the Baltimore Ravens in the 2010 Divisional Round. This was the worst postseason game of Brady’s career and it seriously embarrassed him. He completed 23 of 42 passes with three interceptions. Meanwhile, a sophomore quarterback named Joe Flacco outshone the GOAT.

Baltimore Sun

In the end, the Ravens blew the Patriots away in a 33-14 victory. It wasn’t the performance that the Pats fans expected from Brady but everybody has a bad game. Overall it’s safe to say that Brady has had a brilliant career. But some moments hurt him as much as any other elite player (via Sky Sports).

The Water Slide

Brady loves his downtime as much as anybody else. The off-season is a great period for NFL players because they spend time with their families and relax. This means participating in fun activities and eating what they want. In 2011, Brady went on vacation and enjoyed a water park (via Boston Herald).

Sports Illustrated

An iconic photograph arose from the aftermath of this experience. It showed Brady rushing down a waterslide with his hands raised like a little girl. It was a beautiful shot that seriously embarrassed the quarterback. But it shows that he’s human like everybody else and enjoys the fun things in life.

Us Weekly

Goodbye Gisele

Brady married Gisele Bundchen in 2009 after a three-year romance. They spend the next 13 years together and appeared to have a solid relationship. Despite their public profiles, they managed to keep their private lives as quiet as possible. Their divorce was shocking in 2022 but it came after Bundchen lost patience with her husband.

Vanity Fair

The Brazilian supermodel didn’t appreciate the way Brady put football first. She wanted the 45-year-old to retire and spend time with his family. However, he continued risking his health because he couldn’t resist the bright lights. In the end, it cost him his relationship and they broke up (via New York Post).

Democrat & Chronicle

Week 1 2003

The first game of the 2003 season saw Brady post the worst display of his Patriots career. He never had a performance like this again in New England but this was terrible. He threw a career-high four interceptions and no touchdown passes in a blowout loss against the Bills (via CBS News).

Syracuse.com

This seriously embarrassed Brady because he sets high standards for himself and his teammates. However, most of the Patriots played horribly in this one as Buffalo won 31-0. In the end, this didn’t matter because it woke the Patriots up. They won Super Bowl XXXVIII against the Panthers.
