Former New England Patriots cornerback Asante Samuel criticized Bill Belichick on Monday after the team’s narrow loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Samuel, who’s been one of Belichick’s biggest critics in recent years, tweeted his scrutiny. He said it appeared to still be difficult for Belichick to put a good team out on the field and that the coach has a tendency to devalue players.

Tampa Bay kicker Ryan Succop hit a 48-yard field goal with 1:57 left to give Tampa Bay the lead and eventually the win.

Brady and Belichick would congratulate each other at the end of the game. The former Patriots quarterback was greeted by plenty of ex-teammates on the field after the game.

Brady finished 22-for-43 with 269 passing yards. He didn’t have a touchdown pass.

Ronald Jones II made an appearance in the game and scored a crucial touchdown in the third quarter to give the Buccaneers the lead. Jones only ran the ball six times and finished with 25 yards. Leonard Fournette led the way with 91 yards on 20 carries. He also had three catches for 47 yards.
