NEWS 8 – Tom Brady says he has “no excuses” for not beating the Broncos during Sunday’s 20 – 18 loss in the AFC championship game. He called it an “uphill battle all day” after he absorbed 23 hits while facing a barrage of pressure reminiscent of past Super Bowl losses to the New York Giants.
According to friends and family, the failed last-minute two-point conversion that would have tied the game was just too much pressure for the New England Patriots quarterback. They have reported that Brady, in the early morning hours of January 25, checked himself into a nearby hospital on suicide watch. However, his wife Gisele Bundchen, does not believe that the failed championship win is all that there is to blame.
Gisele has accused Brady of cheating, not only on the field, but off the field as well – saying he has been talking to Cam Newton. Ever since June 2015, when Newton was handed a deflated ball and made the comment, “Who do you think I am, Tom Brady?” the two have connected and reportedly been “chatting” through text messaging and Skype. Gisele Says the conversations have been “awkward and uncomfortable.” After Sunday’s loss, Gisele says Newton messaged her husband calling him a “loser and he should be ashamed of himself” and not to contact him anymore until he’s ready to “learn from a real pro.” This was enough to send Brady over the edge.
“Not only did he lose the AFC championship, but he also lost his confidant, friend and partner Cam Newton,” said a family friend. “I just hope he gets himself the help he needs before it’s too late.” The suicide watch that Brady is under is a 10 day confinement followed with a 30 day inpatient treatment program. Brady has reportedly been asking nurses for his phone so he can Skype with Newton, saying he just wants to “see his face and hear some words of encouragement.” So far, they have not honored his request.
