Arians Identifies Biggest Spring Goals

May 10th, 2019

Demar Dotson

So where is exactly is the emphasis through the spring at One Buc Palace, led by new head coach Bucco Bruce Arians?

Joe was very pleased to hear a real football answer from the new head coach.

When Joe says “real football answer,” that means nothing said about leadership and intangibles.

“I think offensively, is to understand our pass protections. Know where our sights are, know where our hots are …just the basic rules of our pass protections,” Arians told SiriusXM NFL Radio. You can work on those things; it’s hard to work on your running game until we put pads on. You know, defensively, again, know your job. Just know your job, that accountability will come with it. Don’t try to do to much.”

Arians added how much emphasis is on special teams currently, including a recent one-hour special teams practice.

Pass blocking, pass blocking, pass blocking. Ironically, that was an extreme obsession of Dirk Koetter’s.

    “Don’t try to do too much”?

    Somewhere Softie is smiling that big Gummy smile.

    That’s all he ever wanted to hear from a HC!

  3. AwShbucs Says:

    Pretty sure every coach in the league is obsessed with pass blocking. What made Koetter weird was just how much he harped on RB’s abilities as blockers. Almost as though he valued their skills as blockers more than he did their skills as runners of the football.

    His goal should be to replace Dotson and Caleb.

  5. Buc believer Says:

    @DooshLaRue…. I was thinking the same thing… somewhere in his clown box there is a happy GMC. Not trying to hard is his specialty.

  6. louden Says:

    if he isbig on pass blocking
    (and on scoring points)

    then the Suckaneers gonna need better O-Line

    which will give you a running game, and with that better pass protection and with that better offense overall

    (even play-calling gets easier: mixing run/pass/play-action-kind of plays)

    but did the Suckaneers ever build the tenches (the richt way – instead of the Licht way hahaha) ????

    it is what it is..

    Suckaneers suck because of the FrontOffice

    they suck at talent evaluating and @ Roster building

    @maxipad I’m not content with how this team is being run or do I accept all the loosing once again NO TRUTH. Being upset or crying or angry is a choice of feeling key word CHOICE. You wanna chose to cry cuz your team isn’t up to par ok then cry p***y. I choose not to cry. If we loose ok yea I’m upset for a sec then guess what the day an life goes on. We can’t control what this team does or does not do makes no sense to sit around a pout about it. I choose to be positive an not cry over thing it’s a choice which everyone has. Now I challenge you to be better

    #1 BUCS FAN,
    I have chosen to be positive for all 43 years However,35 or 36 losing seasons have made some of even the best Bucs fans skeptical We reserve the right to complain because no matter what,we are the ones that absorb all the criticism when we wear our bucs gear on sundays.

    say Bruce..Your biggest goal better be finding a pass rush sir. I don’t care how fast your D Backs are, you’d better be able to mount some kind of pressure. Get to work Jason Licht. Find us somebody
