Tampa, Florida-Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians doesn’t care what others say, he publicly pointed out quarterback Tom Brady’s mistake after losing to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday .
Arians did not shy away from yelling in the media in the past, saying on Wednesday that he believes his relationship with Brady is healthy.
“Tom and I are very good. I really don’t care what other people think. So this is what he and I think.” Arians said with a smile. “We’re all right out of the stadium. We’re all right today. There’s nothing to talk about.”
Brett Favre, a member of the Professional Football Hall of Fame, said “SiriusXM Blitz”
Favre said Tuesday: “Getting the comment from Bruce Arians, whether true or incorrect, I think the last person you will call after the first game of the year is Tom Brady.” “Now, Maybe they entered a truce in the game and entered the season,’Hey, I want to work harder for you. I hope they know that even technically speaking, we will treat you equally, I am not, so do you agree? If they have a truce , That’s great; if not, I think you are barking the wrong tree.”
After the game, Arians was asked about Brady’s two interceptions. He replied: “One is the poor communication between him and Mike [Evans]. He thought Mike was walking in the middle-this is another report-Mike read it right. He should have faced him, but Tom overthrew it. The other is a screen pass through the pass. He threw the exit, it was six points. the wrong decision making. “
Arias corrected himself on Monday, saying that Evans was actually the fault of the first interception. But Favre still raised questions.
Favre has a unique insight. He said: “The differences are easy to enter quickly. He worked for Green Bay Packers for 16 seasons and then went to the New York Jets in 2008, from 2009 to 2010. I went to the Minnesota Vikings in 2009. “Do something they weren’t prepared for, unless we didn’t protect well, Tom was hit a few times, and you were a little nervous, it did happen. “
Arians maintains a close relationship with the quarterback, telling ESPN that when he was first hired by Bucs in 2019, the quarterback “becomes my son.” He even joked that keeping too close to Ben Rosliberg was one of the reasons why he was expelled from the Pittsburgh Steelers. He plays golf with the quarterback. He invited them to his lakeside cottage in Georgia. He firmly believes in establishing an open and honest relationship with them.
But he also believes in being responsible to them like all players, which is why he includes their names on the weekly accountability table. This is why he cursed Brady through a drill at the beginning of the camp.
Arians told Brady in training camp: “He was punished like everyone else. He added, “He likes to throw the ball in assists, and we don’t throw the ball in assists. “Brady responded on Twitter: “I’m used to it!” “And smiling emoji. Brady is no stranger to hard training. Bill Belichick cursed him during training camp practice. He and former offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien (Bill O’Brien) had a fierce game.
Arians differs from other coaches in that he avoids talking about coaching and tends to be frank with the media. If he thinks a player is performing poorly, or the players around need a raise, he will say so. Nevertheless, he praised Brady. He abides by the philosophy of his mentor, Bear Bryant: “Train them seriously and embrace them later.”
Favre believes that the Arians should abide by Berishik’s method of keeping things inside.
“Bruce Arians is the head coach and he will do it the way he wants-I’m not saying it’s right or wrong-but it happened in New England for many years and it was a success,” Favre said. “And I’m not saying that this is the correct formula, but it is certainly one of the correct formulas. I just didn’t find that calling a quarterback would bring any benefits.
“We are not only talking about quarterbacks, we are talking about the biggest acquisition in football history. I don’t care if he is 43, 33 or 21 years old. In general,’we have to play better from quarterback. When it comes to kicking, we must play better, our coach must be better. In order to get where we want to go, this is what we have to do. Then just do it.”
As for publicly writing about the Brady and Vieques game after a game, Arians said on Wednesday: “When they handed over the Lombardi Trophy to us in July, I felt very interesting. But yes, this is Part of the business. Go ahead. Once a week, one day at a time, we won a few games, everyone will go back to the trend and be happy [laughs]. This is only part of the game. “
