Tom Brady has admitted he struggles to make room to focus on his personal life during football season, with comments following reports that his marriage to supermodel Gisele Bundchen is over.
Bundchen and Brady have reportedly hired divorce lawyers and Bucs star Brady was pictured this week without his wedding ring on.
Brady’s obsession with football and his dramatic retirement from the sport earlier in 2022 are said to be the main reasons behind Bundchen’s accident.
On his ‘Let’s Go’ podcast, Brady discussed his balance in life with NBA and Brooklyn Jets star Kevin Durant, and how his attitude hasn’t changed over his long career.
‘I’m 45 now, do I feel the same way? I almost watch a football season like I’m going on broadcast,” Brady said. “There’s only one way to do it.
“We’ve talked (in the podcast) from time to time about how you enjoy certain moments. The reality is that you can really only be authentic to yourself.
Whatever you say – ‘I want to spend a little more time on this’ – during the season the reality is that when it comes down to it your competitiveness takes over and however much you love this playful work balance, you will end up doing what you always do. have done and that is why you are who you are.’

Brady and Bundchen have two children together – a 9-year-old daughter, Vivian Lake, and 12-year-old son Benjamin Rein – in addition to Brady’s 15-year-old son Jack, who lives with his mother, actress Bridget Moynahan, in New York.

Brady and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers team were defeated 20-18 by the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, the team’s third loss this season.
The quarterback was caught on camera giving his offensive team a furious team talk during the game, saying, “You’re so much better than the way you fucking play.”
His team trailed 10-6 in the second quarter when Brady told his team what he really thought and it was another topic of conversation in his latest podcast.
“It’s a bad day when there are more F-bombs than touchdowns,” he joked. “That wasn’t one of my better days.
“They used to hold you back a bit at those moments, but now it’s a bit for the world to see. That’s just the way it is.’

When host Jim Gray asked if his teammates are responding well, Brady insisted it was his job to motivate them.
“It’s all right,” he said. “I think I have a good relationship with my teammates and they know I’m just doing it to motivate them and take us to the next level.
“If I feel like we’re not living up to the expectations we’re capable of, that’s my job.
“I’m a quarterback. I don’t expect the right tackle to do it, I don’t expect the running back to do it, I don’t expect the receiver to do it. I expect myself to do it.
“I’m the one there speaking in the huddle, listing the plays, that’s my job. I’m going to try and get us going and try to rally us.
“There are many ways to do it and sometimes it’s positive encouragement, sometimes it touches people and tries to raise the level, raise the sense of urgency and my voice and try to create a different vibration to the whole crime.” .’
Brady and the Bucs will play again on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, who have a 1-5 record.
