New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady lambasted his receivers during Sunday night's defeat to the Houston Texans, as the franchise slipped to their second loss of the season.
Brady throw an interception when a pass which was intended for rookie receiver N’Keal Harry was picked off by Texans cornerback Bradley Roby.
The six-time Super Bowl winner was clearly frustrated as the Patriots offense again failed to fire, regularly leaving him with a lack of options downfield.
Brady was vocal in his disappointment, giving his receivers a tongue-lashing as Houston dominated proceedings on their way to snapping a seven-game losing sequence against the AFC East powerhouse.
In a clip, the 42-year-old QB can be seen shouting that he wants his team-mates to 'be faster, quicker and more explosive.'
Brady can also be heard demanding 'more separation' to enable him to target his receivers without risk of another interception.
The veteran was also roundly mocked on social media for his feeble attempt to prevent a pick-six after the INT, although he did somehow stop Roby taking the ball past him.
Brady grazed Roby with his right hand and managed to trip him despite minimal contact, the matador-like move somehow sending the Houston player to the turf.
"Now they need to tell him to try and tackle the guy that he threw the Interception too....what a wus attempt at a tackle.....he is sickening," replied a fan after witnessing the weak attempt to stop his opponent.
"Where’s the clip of them telling Tom to throw better," asked another antagonised viewer.
A third pointed out that: "Julian Edelman is as fast & explosive as he's going to get at this point in his career, Tom."
"How about he just completes a pass or two? About time for the old crone to retire," added a fourth.
Brady connected with James White for two touchdowns and Edelmann for one, but it ultimately proved too little too late as New England were sunk 28-22.
