When New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is frustrated on the field, cameras seemingly pick him up screaming the same word every time.

That word just happens to be the F-bomb.

Some viewers may not like to see the quarterback using that kind of language during games, but it appears to be Brady's go-to word in the heat of the moment.

During a recent game against the Green Bay Packers, cameras caught Brady dropping the F-bomb repeatedly on the sideline after the Patriots gave up a game-sealing first down right before the two-minute warning.

Even if you aren't a professional lip reader, it's pretty easy to tell what he was saying there.

Brady appeared on WEEI's The Dennis and Callahan ShowΒ on Monday and talked about why he drops the F-bomb so much. Here's what he had to say, per WEEI.com's Jerry Spar:

I wish I did have a better mouth out there at times. But there's nothing that quite expresses the way I feel like that word. It is [a great word], especially in the heat of the moment. No I don't say it at home, of course not. It's pretty well filtered at the house. Blame CBS, NBC for putting it on TV, don't blame me.

That's a pretty solid explanation.Β 

Nobody is going to condone Brady using that type of language during games, but sometimes emotions get the best of a player during the heat of the moment. Brady is no exception. As one of the greatest players in NFL history, the cameras tend to be on him at all times. If the networks show Brady cursing, that's their problem.

At least Brady was open and honest about the matter. That's all we can ask of him.
