Ex-NFL Player Jake Arians Weighs In On Dad Taking Over The Buccaneers

January 13th, 2019

Yes, new head coach Bucco Bruce Arians has an outspoken son who played in the NFL.

Is Jake Arians biased toward the new Tampa Bay commander? No, and yes.

On his fantasy-football focused podcast, the younger Arians said last week he was trying his best to give listeners an unbiased assessment of the Bucs’ new hire. He then went on a long explanation of how his dad’s coaching “staff is phenomenal.” And he added that defensive coordinator Todd Bowles is highly regarded around the NFL and could have a head coaching gig again at any time, and offensive coordinator Bryon Leftwich and assistant head coach Harold Goodwin are head-coach material.

But more interesting was the chatter about the Bucs roster and Bruce Arians’ mindset.

“The defense with Todd Bowles, I don’t care if you’ve got 11 free agents out there, you’re going to be solid,” Jake Arians said. “Jason [Pierre-Paul] has a lot left. Vita Vea is going to be a star. You need some corners. [Kwon Alexander,] Lavonte David, those linebackers can fly in Todd’s defense and be phenomenal.

“I don’t know how you win the press conference better. I don’t know how you build a more solid staff to move forward with an organization that’s kind of been in flux. And yeah, it might be for three years; who knows how long B.A. is going to do it. But the fire has been re-lit. Being away from it for a year, being on CBS and really missing it. I don’t think he realized how much until maybe within the last month. But I haven’t heard him this excited since they went like 13-3 in Arizona. My mom is over the moon for people that are worried about that. His health is great. (laughs) Had to get a physical to get the job. I don’t know how you do a better job of eight [head coach] jobs open than this. … Turn it around now and win. They can win with the pieces they have. They’ve got some cap space. They can make some moves. That’s my analysis of it trying to be not biased. I’m over the moon for my dad that he’s this excited and has another chance. … I can’t wait to see what he’s going to do his second time around.”

Joe thought the “it might be for three years” line was interesting, as well as how fired up Mrs. Arians is to be a Buccaneer.

After that chatter, Jake Arians, a former Bills kicker, got fired up talking about how some analysts think Bruce Arians’ success with Ben Roethlisberger, Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck was more about those players than his father.

Young Arians, 39, said any doubters should go back to see how his developed quarterback Tim Couch before he broke his leg late in the 2002 season. That Browns team marched on to the playoffs — their last trip in team history — with QB Kelly Holcumb putting up 429 yards on Wild Card weekend against at top-10 Steelers defense in Pittsburgh. But the Browns lost that game 36-33 after their defense coughed up a fourth-quarter lead.

Jake Arians also expressed a lot of confidence in America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, and how he’d take his dad’s coaching quickly. “People don’t realize that Jameis was a 4.2 student in high school,” he added.

    Might to be bit biased talking about your fathers team.

    In Bruce I trust

  2. rrsrq Says:

    That was a biased assessment at all,
    I found the cap space statement interesting
    Is Kwon re-signing (does he know that Bowles wants to keep him, probably can’t keep, DJax, Kwon, Donovan, Hump and GMC. Go get Greedy

  3. rrsrq Says:

    *wasn’t

  4. Darin Says:

    We are all biased when it comes to the Bucs. I just so happen to agree with the young man. The only thing this team has been lacking is a great head coach. Coaching staff I should say. Some guys get it some dont. The difference will be coming to the field next season. Finally looking forward to a Bucs game.

  5. Pat Says:

    So, Greedy Williams from LSU or Jonah Williams from Alabama? I’m leaning towards Greedy for the press coverage and swag.

  9. AlteredEgo Says:

    Lol… who knew we’d get a new Captain Fear as part of the Arian’s package

  10. SOEbuc Says:

    Pat

    Negative on Greedy. Vet in Bowels defense Pat Peterson is the only big deal we need to make to teach an entire secondary still under rookie contract.

  11. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    …… Three years 😭

  12. SOEbuc Says:

    I do believe BA is really excited about returning to the NFL with a team that had one of the top offenses last year.

  13. Rod Munch Says:

    OMG did you see Brees come out and just throw an INT on the first play of the f-ing game?!?! CUT HIM! He stinks. You can’t have your QB ever turn the ball over, EVER!!! Not only that Brees can’t hit the deep ball, look at how he missed it there. Pitiful. Brees needs to be not only benched, but out of the league, he’s garbage. He just lost the game. Terrible.

  14. rrsrq Says:

    SOEbuc

    Why negative on Greedy, the DB is a former DB, Bowles is a former DB, they can bring a vet in but I doubt if the spend big money. Greedy can be the shut down corner, Bowles is going to send blitzes, so corners are hopefully not going to have to cover as long as they have in the past, plus they will likely be in press coverage. Any rook will get worked, you playing against some of the best in the NFC south along with competing against ME. Also you know Ronde going to have to chime in.

  15. Old School Athlete Says:

    I know this is off-topic, but I just saw Antonio Gates help a New England guy up. I guess he’s a big fat softie too. I wonder if people in SoCal will be taking to Charger fan blogs demanding he be traded.

  16. Rod Munch Says:

    Old School – Yeah but does Gates read comic books!?! GRRRR!!!! That makes me so angry, how dare a grown man read a comic book and like Batman!!?!? GRRRRR!!!! IM SO ANGRY!!!!

  17. SB Says:

    Only the stupid ones @ Old School Athlete.
    Our fan base has Plenty.

  18. MadMax Says:

    We’re going to the playoffs….probably this year! So glad we got Coach Arians. While I dont want to discount our needs on Oline, still, a top 5 O. Get that D Fixed and we’ll be enjoying some jan games next year.

  19. cmurda Says:

    I want Greedy. He has #1 CB speed and swag. Our pick could have major value. Considering our cap space issue, I would be on board with trading down for a nice package from a team that wants the coveted #5 pick to leapfrog the QB needy G-Men.

  20. catcard202 Says:

    Cap space saving roster moves need to be made to trim the fat & reshuffle positional spending.

    Bucs have $20M + cuts/draft…Need LT/RT/RG/RB/3-4DE/3-4 OLB-Edge/SS/CB/RS-KR.

    DJax is a trade/cut candidate.($10M)…This helps Bucs keep Humphries.
    GMC is a restructure/trade/cut candidate.($13M)…Draft 3-4DE/DT.
    DE Curry is a cut candidate @ $8M.(In favor of keeping Kwon in TB.)
    Brate could be trade bait @ $7M.(Colts) Luxury with OJ & major DEF needs.
    Grimes isn’t coming back. ($7M)…Darby? Trade for Peterson/Ramsey? Draft?
    Dotson($4M) & Gholston($3.75M) are borderline calls.Production/Age concerns.
    DSmith gets to walk. eSmith gets to walk. Benecoch gets to walks too.

    Bucs need to trade for Foles next season!!

  22. StoutGospel Says:

    All hail outspoken kids!!!

    BTW…I think that fool @Bonzai…, rather I KNOW that that fool @Bonzai….said about 3 weeks ago in a prior thread to (me), when I mentioned Foles on a 3 year deal to Bucs, and prospect of trading Jameis for good picks….. that Nick Foles was “a distraction” not a solution. So flippin’ noisy that person is. ARE YOU ALL WATCHING THIS versus Saints??!?

    What a loud fool….

    Your name is rather confusing.
    Doesn’t quite match your post.

  24. Bird Says:

    Funny all the Jameis messiah cult that said Foles is garbage.

    😂

  25. Bird Says:

    Rod munch

    You are so right

    Jameis = Brees

  26. Rod Munch Says:

    The stupid name / inappropriate name for position rule disagrees with Greedy being the pick. Below are some examples from the recent past and players tied to the Bucs in one way or another…

    Last year it said CB Fitzpatrick should not be the pick because it’s a position inappropriate name, which is harder to pick out than just a stupid name. Anyways Fitzpatrick, from what I read, had just an OK rookie year – but the name rule would have made the choice James, who, as we know, had a perfect name for a safety and had an amazing rookie year. Also the year before that it predicted Taco Charlton (a number of people on this board said he should be the pick) would be a bust (he had 1 sack for the year) and the year before that predicted VH3 would be a bust, as would Eli Apple, and the top corner (of the top draft picks) should be William Jackson III – and that too turned out to be the case.

    Yeah the stupid name rule seems like nonsense but I don’t think it’s ever failed yet. Greedy, for a corner, just seems like a stupid name filled with terrible puns. So it’s gonna be an uphill climb for the kid to overcome such a terrible name. With at said the name rule has no bearing on talent, it’s purely Magic 8 ball level stuff that seems to never let you down.

  27. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Foles isn’t dominating the Saints offense and picking off the first play of the game.
    The Eagles team is winning. Foles couldn’t beat Mike Smith’s defense this year.

  28. Rod Munch Says:

    StoutGospel – Cool story cupcake, thanks for sharing.

  29. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be the most feared team next season that was not feared previous season

  30. Cb13 Says:

    Jonah Williams !!!Jonah Williams !!! Jonah Williams!!!

  31. Rod Munch Says:

    LOOK AT THAT BUM FOLES THROWING AN INT!!!! You CAN NOT win the game if you throw an INT!!! THIS GAME IS OVER, BOTH TEAMS ARE LOSERS!!!! CALLING IT NOW, this game will have no winner, they’ll just go to half time and never come back out. This is disgusting. CUT FOLES NOW!!!

  32. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    I haven’t really started my draft research but I’ve watched Greedy a little and I’m intrigued by him and Carlton in the outside with quick VH3 is the slot.
    Would not be against drafting the best DL if we can get another good veteran corner.

  33. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Hope Gerald McCoy and Jason Licht are watching Flecther Cox right now, that is how a real defensive tackle is supposed to play.

  34. AleteredEgo Says:

    Munch….time to start using the breathalyzer on your keyboard lock….SMH

  35. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Rod-

    Did Jamies make the plaYoffs this season??

    Are you comparing Jamies to quarterbacks that made it to the playoffs this season?

    Then why isn’t Jamies in the playoffs this season?

    Oh yeah that’s right, because Jamies SUCKS!!!!!

  36. D-Rome Says:

    Great stuff, Joe. Thank you.

  37. Rod Munch Says:

    Alaskan – Should be able to more easily find a corner in FA compared to a d-lineman. Unless the corner is a truly special talent you always get the d-lineman. As Rich McKay said and did, you build your defense from the line back – and with McCoy and JPP both on the older side, and with only Vita being a young guy with a future on the line, you really really have to address that as d-lineman are harder to find later in the draft and extremely expensive to get in FA. Again, that is true UNLESS the talent at corner/safety is truly elite. For example, Mark Barron, good player, not elite, shouldn’t have went that high. VH3, nowhere close to an elite talent (and I’m not a VH3 basher, but he’s small, not really fast, nothing special about him). That’s a general rule of thumb that seems to work out more often than it doesn’t. James was considered an elite safety prospect, and it was mid-1st round, not top 10, so to me that was the pick – although Vita still may end up being a worthy pick as well, in particular based on his late play.

    Also the Bucs probably now finally have 2 starting safeties, and one starting corner, and if VH3 is back and can play, he’s your nickel, so you’d need another starter and depth, but you can find corners later in the draft much easier than you can find top end DE’s and DT’s.

  38. Rod Munch Says:

    #7423 – R U WATCHING THIS GAME!!! THEY ARE TURNING THE BALL OVER!!! YOU CAN’T WIN IF YOU TURN THE BALL OVER!!!! EVER!!!! GAME IS OVER FOR BOTH TEAMS!!!!

  39. SB Says:

    Rod………..7423 obviously doesn’t know football

  40. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Rod-

    Jamies isn’t in the playoffs because he SUCKED this season

    Admit it

  41. lurker Says:

    who is rod munch going to blame next year?

  42. Rod Munch Says:

    7423 – Yeah, #1 passing offense… number #32 defense… = obviously blame the QB. LOL!

  43. Ndog Says:

    SB thank you, finally someone else said it.

  44. Rod Munch Says:

    lurker – If Ryan Smith and Chris Conte are still on the team I’m blaming Licht.

  45. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    7423 wasn’t bad until he started pretending he knew what he was talking about.
    Bro Jameis isn’t in the playoffs (for the 100th time) because of the TEAM.
    Bottom 5 in rushing, defense, and kicking.
    Who can win with that?
    Longest rushing TD in ‘17 by a RB- 2 yards, 2018- 5 yards.
    We need at least a threat of a run game.

  46. Ndog Says:

    Classic Bucs fan, our passing offense was great, but our run game, defense and a kicking game was horrific. Then in the next breath they say, with our first pick we should draft a QB. SMH at these morons, man this fan base is clueless.

  47. lurker Says:

    well, we will see this year if jameis has it or not. hopefully he will not get suspended and let the team down again.

  48. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Rod-

    Bucs offense #1?????

    That’s a lie, passing yards equal #1 offense????? Nooooo buddy, that’s why your standards are so low

    Scoring points is all that matters, Tampa Bay is #12

    You don’t like contextual based facts because it exposes Jamies as a garbage quarterback

  49. lurker Says:

    jameis has major issues, both on and off the field.
    no excuses for him this coming season.

  50. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Let’s not pretend that Jay Miss has been anything other than “average” at best as an NFL QB. We certainly expected much more for the #1 overall pick in the draft. Hopefully, BA can make the difference.

  51. StoutGospel Says:

    Hey @Munch(my rear end)…

    Do you happen to attend the draft and other parties that are “thrown” by this website….?

  52. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Alaskan-

    Jamies threw away the Cincinnati game, too stupid to beat the cowboys, not talented enough to beat the ravens, and his pathetic performance against the saints cost us the playoffs

    We’d be 9-6 with a shot at the playoffs if Jamies did his job

  53. Ndog Says:

    Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Let’s not pretend that Jay Miss has been anything other than “average” at best as an NFL QB. We certainly expected much more for the #1 overall pick in the draft. Hopefully, BA can make the difference.

    So you expected him to play defense, block, and kick along with leading a top 5 passing offense? How many guys have done that ever? When you find that guy please let us know so we can go get him.

  54. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    7423 so we aren’t talking about Fitz losing 5 straight?
    You say we should be 9-6, so you expect Jameis to go 8-1??
    So if he doesn’t go 8-1 with a bottom 5 defense, run game, and kicking game he sucks?
    Bro get a clue, that’s not how football works.

  55. Ndog Says:

    For example Jameis this year alone against Atlanta Jameis threw 8 TDs and 3 picks (1 off of the WRs hands) and yet we lost both games. All while we averaged 2.3 yards a carry from our backs. Please tell us how those losses are the fault of the QB?

  56. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Wow saints just pulled a Bucs with that holding on Kamara TD.
    We don’t have a RB that can do anything like that though.

  57. AlteredEgo Says:

    Rod … Jamyth couldn’t make those Brees throws if he was playing Madden

  58. Bucsfan77 Says:

    It’s kind of hard to judge Jameis for his last 4 years when he has only had Kotter as a coach, I would rate Jameis on a scale of 1-10 a 7, Kotter I’d rank a 2 as a head coach. 5 as an OC. Kotter has never been a QB guru, it’s like giving g a normal person the keys to a race car, yes they will be able to go around d the track but not at 200 mph.

  59. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Alaskan-

    Are you taking about Fitz???

    Is Fitz a BACKUP quarterback??????

    Are you holding a BACKUP quarterback to the same standards as a starting #1 overall draft pick quarterback?????????

    Okay that proves your standards are too low, now I know why you’re a weak Bucs fan

  60. cmurda Says:

    Foles pfft. Jameis is our guy. Deal with it and pull for B.A. Eagles aren’t beating the Aints even though I wish they would.

  61. Rayjay1122 Says:

    I think this was the biggest splash coach hiring thus far. I also respect Arians and believe in his coaching skills. That being said, our Bucs often win on paper in the off-season moves but it hasn’t translated to victories on the field.

    Since I have been burned so many times with off-season excitement leading to disappointing seasons, I am going to hold my expectations in check. I do however give the new staff my full support.

  62. Rod Munch Says:

    7423 – Might want to learn how to read stupid, I said #1 passing offense… that’s a fact, stupid.

  63. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Rod—

    My response is still valid. Passing yards don’t equal #1 offense, points do. We were #12 in points

    Try to see the forest for the trees when arguing with me

  64. Rod Munch Says:

    7423 – Just catching up on the comments above and how remarkbly stupid you are. Without Jameis the team is 9-6? Really, with the #31st worst points against defense, mostly bad kicking and no running game and Fitz going 2-5… but they’re 7-1 without Winston… LOL! You’re truly a world class moron. Anywho enjoy be triggered for year after year since Winston isn’t going anywhere.

  65. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    7423- Man you are dense, way to miss the point.
    Every player has the same standard if they are on that field. Draft position doesn’t mean ish.
    If my team is playing someone I expect that person to play well.

    I hope you read your posts in a few years when you start getting football. You will be utterly embarrassed. 😂

  66. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Alaskan-

    No they don’t. If they did then they would all be getting paid the same

    The more a player is paid, the more is expected of them

    More expected = Higher standards

  67. JimmyJack Says:

    You guys keep digging about Winston. We will keep laughing at you. It’s funny cause both of you are worng. Winston is just a average QB. Nothing more or less.

    Sensible fans have no problems waiting for the next ten months to see what difference Bruce can make and if Winston can proove his worth as a winning QB.

    Keep arguing for our entertainment…..but let me tell you something. Your argument will never resolve til Jamie’s steps back onto the field.

  68. Bird Says:

    Jimmy jack

    Respect.

  69. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Rod-

    #7423 never said without Jamies we’re 9-6 (#7423 should have said 9-7)

    #7423 said if Jamies played like a franchise quarterback, we could have beaten Saints, Ravens, Cowboys, and Bengals

    Which might have put us in the playoffs

  70. JimmyJack Says:

    Rod in sounds like you forgot what happened this season.

    Our defense was not #31 all year. They played at a average level for the last 8 games. And it didn’t help. We still couldn’t win.

    Both sides of the ball have issues buddy.

  71. Tbbucs3 Says:

    The 2018 team…..

    with Jamies/Fitzmagic at QB the Bucs were 5-11

    With Mariota at QB the 2018 Bucs are 4-12

    With Matt Ryan 5-11

    With Cam Newton 5-11

    With Drew Brees 7-9

    Andrew Luck 6-10

    Point being that it’s not easy to win with the Bucs defense.

  72. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    #7423 is right 99% of the time

    Except when it comes to spelling NFL players/coaches names right

  73. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Jimmy jack

    What do you mean by the Bucs defense playing at an average level the last 8 games?

    Do you mean when the Bucs gave up 38 points to the NY Giants, letting Lamar Jackson control the entire game, or letting the Falcons gash us yet again.

    Really what made Duffner decent was playing against the likes of Nick Mullins and Alex Smith.

  74. JimmyJack Says:

    Tbbucs 3. That’s fair. Our defense still was not that good in those last games. They were overrated compared to M.Smiths historically awful defense.

    They were bad but still managed to keep those final games close enough & gave the offense a chance to win.

    Point is the offense had chances to win games and didn’t do there job. Blame for losing should be shared. By the QB too

  75. JimmyJack Says:

    Hey at least the Saints are reppin our division well.

  76. JimmyJack Says:

    NFC East is toast.

  77. JabooBuc Says:

    Can we just stop with all the JW arguments? He’s playing this year for a guy that wrote a book called the “QB Whisperer”. Based on what I’ve seen from BA he will call JW out based on performance. We essentially have a one year rental for JW for this year with an option to buy. BA will let us know if this guy has the mental capacity to be a great later so no sense in us going back and forth.

    Seems like time would be better spent discussing how to put the best possible team around him in the short term. Of course, not that our discussions matter much.

  78. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    That should be Buccaneers going to NFC championship, were the only team that could beat the saints at home

  79. tmaxcon Says:

    Hey Joe when can we expect the Michael Bennett post?????

    At least one of your mancrushes makes plays. Heard a lot of Michael Bennett name in 4th qtr which is something you have not heard in a decade about your other mancrush captain blowout softest player in nfl history

  80. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Don’t be sad Alshon Jefferey, Mike Evans would have dropped that catch too

  81. Steven007 Says:

    When posters have to inform us of how often they’re right, particularly when they imply that it’s nearly all the time, and aside from the obvious we can throw troll Max into this category, you know that they desperately need to pad they’re tiny egos. They’re like the loud guys in the gym they get their ass kicked when it comes down to it. Stick to facts andthere’s no need to give us an exact percentage of how often you think you’re right because it’s wrong on its face and you end up looking sillier then you usually do. Which is pretty silly.

  82. SB Says:

    You’re not a fan 7423

  83. JimmyJack Says:

    7423 we beat both them teams that just played.

    We had our chance to be there. Then we let a hobbled Washington with a practice squad team walk into our crib and thourghly dismantle us.

  84. JimmyJack Says:

    I’m so done with this Bucs Era of football.

    I believe Bruce Arians and his 53-man coaching roster will spark a new Era for this franchise.

    Give me Winston, ME, Hump, Mapet, Jenson, Kwon, LVD, JPP & any player on their rookie deal and we can win this year.

    I’ll also take Minter, A.Adams and probably someone else I forgot.

    All the rest of the players can follow GMC out the door.

  85. JimmyJack Says:

    And give Todd Bowles your #5 draft pick. He is going to need a cornerstone player to establish his vision for our defense.

    He will want a DL or LB to transition a different look for our front 7.

  86. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    SB-

    The Buccaneers players disrespect us fans by having losing records year after year

    Time for us fans to hold players we pay money to see accountable

  87. SB Says:

    I would insult you 7423 but you wouldn’t get it.

  88. SB Says:

    Yes Jimmy………Christian Wilkins.
    I think this kid is a generational talent with his versatility.
    God Forbid that Belicheck gets his hands on him.

  89. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    SB

    Check out Jeffery Simmons – when you get a chance bredren.

  90. SB Says:

    SUP LUV
    I was just thinking about calling you today to get your opinion on the B.A. hiring.Hope your New Year is going great

  91. BrianBucs Says:

    Agreed on Foles.

    Arians could do so much more with him than Winston

  92. catcard202 Says:

    Jimmy Jack…best case scenario…No trades are made to grab a QB 1-4 & Lock/Haskins/Jones are all on the board when TB picks @ #5…In that scenario, knowing this is a deep DEF draft… You have to go squeeze the NYG or JAX for a couple picks to move up & ensure they get the franchise QB they really want.

  93. Tbbucs3 Says:

    You guys realize Nick Foles is a Chip Kelly QB right? Foles with Arians would be a terrible fit but it’s not even a realistic possibility so it’s not even worth bringing up.

    Catcard…..Not much chance of that happening. With 4 teams ahead of us and all in rebuild modes I can’t see them not moving off their pick.

    A better scenario that is probably more likely is if two teams trade up for QBs. That gives us a Top 3 position player.

    If you look at Arians No Risk It No Biscuit offense you will see that it looks a lot like what Koetter ran here the first half of this season and Foles would be a much better fit than Winston. A lot less turnovers with Foles

    Could see SF & NYJ being is play to deal..But none of the top 3-4 QB’s in 2019 are as attractive as Herbert in 2020!

    If Arians keeps DJAX then Fireeee Arians!

    Tbbucs 3,

    Foles played college ball at Arizona, drafted in 2012. Chip Kelly signed with the eagles 2013. Yes Kelly coached him but the same thing could be said for Pederson.
