Since 2005, a new concept came to stay in our lives: Blue Monday. The third Monday of January is considered the “saddest day of the year”, according to a formula that the scientific community does not support. However, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Dallas Cowboys at Raymond James Stadium, someone will definitely not be in the best possible mood.
If we just think about the most famous players and, therefore, with more media pressure on these teams, it is clear that whoever is eliminated between Tom Brady and Dak Prescott could make this formula valid and live on Monday Night Football his saddest day of the year.
The possible Blue Monday for Tom Brady
Let’s start by analyzing the case of Tom Brady, the seven-time Super Bowl winner is coming from the worst season in his 23-year career, which included a divorce after 13 years of marriage to Brazilian top model Gisele Bndchen.
Being defeated for the first time in his career by “America’s Team” could even represent the last game of his career and a hard blow for a man accustomed, at least, to win a playoff game year after year.
The possible Blue Monday for Dak Prescott
But Brady at least has joys in the past that could offset this tough blow, on the other hand, Prescott still can’t shake the reputation of not being able to make the playoff leap in quality to become one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks.
Prescott has a 1-3 record in the playoffs and after fracturing the thumb on his right hand in Week 1, he has come back inconsistently and is the QB with the most interceptions this season with 15.
That is why Blue Monday 2023 will definitely be a day that either Brady or Prescott will not want to remember, we will have to wait for which one.
