Bruce Arians Talks Playoffs, Super Bowl

March 25th, 2020

Bucco Bruce Arians was hit with the ultimate question today during a conference call with Joe and local media.

Does signing a 20-year veteran quarterback to a 7-9 team mean you’re capable of winning a Super Bowl immediately?

“I think so,” Arians said. “The last meeting we had as a football team, you know, I think every single player in the room believed they should have been in the playoffs,” Arians said. “And the major factor was our turnover ratio. We didn’t get enough turnovers and we turned it over way too many times. And if we corrected that, talent would not be the issue. I don’t think talent will be the issue whether we make the playoffs or not. Now the Super Bowl, there’s some luck that comes with that, staying healthy and some other things. But talent will not be an issue to keep us out of the playoffs, no.”

Joe will add that Tom Brady never has had a losing season, and he’s had one season with 10 wins or less.

No pressure, Coach!

    everyone will step their game up because we finally have a leader of men at the QB position…..

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  3. SteveK Says:

    This is truth!

    Turnover margin!

  4. Buc1987 Says:

    813…you and Arians are right…there’s no problem with our kicker…he’s perfect…same with the awesome run game they had…

    Whatever.

  5. 813bucboi Says:

    1987

    those problems are a drop in the ocean compared to the turnover problems we HAD with our previous QB….lol….

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  6. Mike Johnson Says:

    I hate to be the soothsayer here Butt..Be careful of the hype fellow Buc fans. How many times we been here before? So many You cannot remember them all. I’m Not buying into it one Iota. Not one people. Brady gets injured and then its…Woulda/Coulda/shoulda all over again. Play each game and lets see what we got at seasons end. Don’t start countin them chickens..They might hatch empty.

  7. 813bucboi Says:

    MJ

    the difference this year is we have:

    our HC that has won an SB….
    our QB has won SBs….
    SHAQ has won an SB….
    JPP has won a SB…
    SUH played in a SB…..

    years prior it was the same ol squad returning with no sense on how to make a run at the playoffs….we have that experience on both sides of the ball from our leaders along with our coaching staff……

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  8. Adrnagy Says:

    Suddenly the oline plays great .. improved. Etc etc. just like the running game and kicker are fine. Draft draft draft that’s all I hear.

    Like you see stats in the category of turnovers , let’s looks at the stats for oline.
    Then we shall ask did we improve ? Have we upgraded ? Are we solid ?
    Or is it another lie from two face coach…

    Ranked 22. Rush. Ranked last Sacks and Hits.
    Penalties last.

    Oh .. I know. You’ll just blame everything on the previous QB because he did it all. He was Superman.
    Some folks here are running around without a head.

  9. Ed Says:

    What a ego, blame one man Winston, for every loss this past season,no wonder they did not want his old ass back in Arizona. Again where are all the free agents that were breaking the door down to play with TB-43. What a joke,you better win,not later but now. Also draft another kicker, a couple of old washed up running back and guarantee 50 mil, for one player while you are ruining this team.

  10. J Says:

    Without the TO’s, the missed kicks mean absolutely NOTHING!

  11. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We haven’t lost a game yet…..so sure, we can win a Super Bowl!!!

  12. Adrnagy Says:

    So far we haven’t addressed any weakness areas from last year. Possibly at QB but you can’t tell yet because Brady will be in first year Arians offense which leads to high int.

  13. 813bucboi Says:

    Some folks here are running around without a head.

    better than running around without a JOB!!!…LOL…just ask JW….

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  14. 813bucboi Says:

    J

    BINGO!!!!!!

    hard to establish the run when your QB has 2 INTs in the 1st quarter and your down 10-0….lol…

    GO BUCS!!!!

  15. Adrnagy Says:

    Here we go again … you have to be ahead of the curve not behind.
    how can you establish the run from the get go. If your oline and rb only produce 3.2 yds per attempt. Then a holding penalty ?

    Of course let’s not forget we have one bright future HC calling plays ..

  16. LaMarcus Says:

    I dont wanna hear no excuses when Brady throws 20+ ints in his first season in BA system.

  17. Bucco Says:

    Happy to have Brady and I believe it will be the culture change we have all been hoping for in Tampa…

    That said, now that we have kicked Winston to the curb we all know what comes next, Jameis holding a Lombardi #ITSABUCSLIFE

  18. SteveK Says:

    Turnovers + losing= Jameis’ demise

    QB is most impactful position on the field. They get the glory and accountability.

  19. SteveK Says:

    Adrnagy,

    Our RBs- far from studs- received eight man fronts a lot last year. Reason being, teams wanted to challenge the QB to beat them by throwing it because they knew they’d get their chances for hands on balls.

  20. geno711 Says:

    I think there are some people on this site saying that Arians is a two faced coach and that Brady will have 20 interceptions this year.

    Who are these guys anyway?

  21. Adrnagy Says:

    Stop it right now Stevenk
    You favorite head coach. Came out with his big mouth And said his running game what? His running backs what?
    You tell me … come on

  22. SkBucsFan Says:

    The fact is that we have improved the most important position on a team. Time will tell if it works out. But to have the few on here that criticize everybody else including the coaches, O-line, RB is laughable. Why do all of the above weak links still have jobs or were signed to contracts in free agency but your boy Jameis is still unemployed? Oh, that’s right. Because the other 31 teams are lead by morons that wouldn’t know a good thing when they see it. I think at this point he better hope the CFL comes calling.

  23. SteveK Says:

    Adrnagy,

    Is it the running game’s fault when Jameis would come out and fire first possession interceptions? Hard to establish any kind of a running game when your QB gives it away early and often.

    It goes both ways. Teams want Jameis to throw it. Bc that’s how they get their chances for turnovers. By and large our biggest culprit for losing.

  24. Adrnagy Says:

    Let me see… first pass int. Vs rush attempts ? So if QB throws int

    Even more .. you run the ball. As a HC and OC you adjust the calls.

    The game plan has already been written. Before the game.

    What gives the team the best chance to win ? 3.2yds per attempt or throwing it?

    Thank you.

  25. FactTeller Says:

    @813: we get it you are stuck in the house and have nothing else to do but challenge as by triple and quadruple posting in every thread. At least Tmax had some substance if you gonna bombard come with more “umph” ya feel me?

    Go Bucs!!

  26. SteveK Says:

    Today is a passing league. No one argues that. But look at turnovers for QBs in today’s game.

    Aaron Rodgers has less INTs the last five years than Winston had just last year.

    Rules make the game easier to pass the football, putting more of an emphasis on an accurate, timely trigger man. Turnovers at the QB position should happen less than when Peyton Manning played his first five years- because rules on hitting receivers and QBs has changed drastically.

    You must admit that.

  27. SkBucsFan Says:

    In hindsight I don’t want JW to leave. I want him to sign with another team. Not because I want him to fail, Or see him succeed. I really don’t care. I want him to sign so we can get a compensatory pick next year. A 5 year failed experiment without anything to show for it is more concerning. At least a 3rd/4th round pick would take so of the sting out of this whole thing.

  28. Adrnagy Says:

    Running game non existent. And so far we haven’t upgrade oline and running game.
    And you believe Brady will fake throw and run with it ?
    Same goes this year. Loaded box. Etc etc
    Brate and oj will have to block and who is the third receiver ? Do we have a slick quick Edelman to bail Brady out?
    Because I don’t see Brady extending the plays while Godwin or Evans run open with a double coverage.

  29. SteveK Says:

    We were the only team in the league last year to have three OL making 10+ million. Jensen and smith had solid years. 813 mentioned Cappa as well.

    We drafted RoJo in the second, granted he’s had some issues but was better last year.

    How can you say that? Remember “weapons for Winston”. Compare the landscape of the league and the Bucs have plenty on offense that a QB would want to have. Hence why Brady made a football decision and decided to come here, thankfully.

  30. Dom>Licht Says:

    Good thing they passed the corona virus aid package.. Jamies needs to collect a pay check from some where. Not looking like it will be from the NFL

  31. Craig Says:

    We are a couple of players short of a super team. Most teams are. The team will get closer this year and they seem to have the other thing that teams need to win: luck.

    At last it looks like the Bucs luck has changed. If it stays on their side the sky is the limit, if they develop a trued run game. To do that they need at least a RT.

    A better runner might also help. RoJo seems to need a hole to drive his truck through.

    Draft will arrive someday and we will see if they get us close enough.

  32. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    Adrnagy I bet you hope the Bucs open 0-5.

  33. WestChap Says:

    So, we’re all agreed then: Super Bowl or bust!

    Fans want it. Brady’s contract incentivizes it. Bruce admits it.

    Let’s go… and naysayers be darned!

  34. Pewter power Says:

    Imagine that….remove winston and insert Brady and we are 12th in power rankings. Basically everyone except the nuthugger winston fans acknowledging we have the talent to be in the playoffs once America’s turnover machine was replaced

  35. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Adrnagy, would it be possible for you to wait until all of the wheeling and dealing is done before you rip everything to shreds? Why are you even posting here? You don’t sound like a Bucs fan at all.

  36. Erik Hesson - Fine Artist - City of St Pete Says:

    This is just like when Lebron went to Miami or when Lebron went to Cleveland….

    A Championship is coming, Bucs fans.

    Maybe even this season at RayJay…

  37. JimmyJack Says:

    Adrnagy calm down. Right now the Bucs have two pro RBs on the roster. And one of them is Dare.

    Uess you are suggesting the plan is to roll with only those two RBs it’s safe to say they have a plan to fill the position.

    Yes, they didn’t address RB in the first week of free agent(OL they did make a move) you do realize they got like 3 more moths(at the least), right? Very impatient.

  38. Ivan The Insider Says:

    @ADRNAGY,

    How does a QB throw for over 5,000+ yards if the O-Line doesn’t do a solid job of pass protection!?

    You can’t have it both ways, claiming your hero played some great football yet somehow the O-Line was crappy.

    Hits & sacks go up proportionately but the number of pass plays you call as well.

    P.S. Quit yer cryin.

    God help us in 2022, we better walk away from the next two years with 3 trophies in the case or this was a massive failure.

    ………….

    Lol Our biggest failure of recent is the first selection of 2015

  40. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    I will say it again.

    “In Bruce Arians I trust!”

  41. mark2001 Says:

    I think no one puts more pressure on Bruce Arians, than Bruce Arians does

  42. SB Says:

    Dumbarses………..You can’t get good YPC from any RB if you are down 14 to 0 in the first quarter cause your QB threw two picks. (Likely one for a pick six)
    Teams don’t respect your run game if they know you have to pass.
    HTF do you expect to have a good run game when you have to pass 50 times a game to make up for the 14 points your QB handed the other team??????

  43. SB Says:

    Lamarcus Says:
    March 25th, 2020 at 11:11 am
    Trade Godwin for Edelman. straight up. We have a championship Qb on a losing team

    DUMBEST COMMENT OF THE YEAR SO FAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING DING DING DING DING

  44. SB Says:

    Ndog says:
    I love Godwin and Evans, but I hope one thing Brady absolutely does is get these guys to run better routes, cause while they are extremely talented they don’t exactly run great routes.

    Can you possibly get any more stupid? I mean this for real?
    Two top Five WRs in the NFL that made circus catches from a THE ONLY 30/30 NFL QB Ever!!!
    Dude you really need to put the pipe down and the bottle, and the needle.
    SMDH

  45. AlteredEgo Say: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    BA is “clueless”…

  46. Erick Says:

    I know this might sound crazy, but I think there is a possibility of Bucs drafting a WR in 1st round of draft. Here me out:

    1. Arians, Brady, and (especially) Light are in win NOW mode. Two of those guys will be retiring in the next couple years regardless, and the other is fighting for a future as a GM.

    2. Arians has stated before that drafting and OL is only going to help the coach after you. I think they are happy with Haeg, and will address the depth in later rounds. I don’t see the top 4 tackles being there at 14 anyway.

    3. Arians runs 11 personnel, (1 RB, 1 TE) as his favorite package, which needs a 3rd receiver with Perriman gone.

    4. Definitely need a RB, but think you can get better value in 2nd round. Should be several to choose from (Swift, Taylor, Akers).

    Imagine how dangerous this offense would be if Henry Ruggs III was the 3rd receiver? Add in a Swift or Taylor in the 2nd and yikes. I know it’s unlikely, but exciting to think about.

  47. Bucs Fan Since ‘76 Says:

    Look, I am a Jameis fan, but for cripes sakes, he threw 30 picks, seven for TD’s, and how many lost fumbles? No team wins with that kind of gorilla on its back, and yet, we were two last minute missed FG’s away from 9-7. If we secure an elite RB in the draft we are a solid pick for the playoffs and perhaps the SB with Brady at QB.

    I watched our SB last night, and respectfully, that offense was borderline atrocious. Our D might have been one of the best five ever. Now, we have an elite offense at the skill positions, minus RB, and a D that showed signs it could be pretty good in 2021. Same front seven, same LB corps, and same young secondary with a year in Bowles’s system. Again, add the elite RB, cut the TO’s by 60%+, and we should be as good as any team in the NFC.

  48. Bucs Fan Since ‘76 Says:

    Good analysis Erick.

  49. Pewter power Says:

    —————
    There is a reason you say this with Brady under center but never with Winston. Nothing is preventing us from drafting a quarterback to develop

  50. Mike28277 Says:

    What Erick said… and agree. Wouldn’t be surprised! Juedy or Lamb outside and Godwin in the slot?

  51. Chris K Says:

    Damn it man! Where’s the Maxipad? The man who said Brady would never play for a basement dwelling franchise. The man who said we needed to give Jameis his parole so he could be snagged up by a winner! (still waiting on that)

    Why when it becomes obvious we are about to win he slides his trolling ass out of here? I know you’re peeking in Trollmax… Nothing to say anymore? Just as I thought, never were a fan, just a PUNK!

    Barring catastrophic injury to our team, 2020 will be a successful season.
    B.A. is right when he says luck has to come into play to win a SuperBowl.

  52. JimmyJack Says:

    Not the carziest idea Erik but I could make a case that several other areas could make a much bigger impact then a #3 WR would. So I don’t think it happens.

    Honestly I’m hoping we can get a safety……If they can find a guy that Bowles could do with the other rookie safety’s he has gotten……..Adding a player like that to this defense I would argue is the biggest impact they could make with that pick.
    Not sure if that guy is there at 14 though is the only question.

  53. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    I thought either Dorsett or Lewis would end up here

  54. Miller5252 Says:

    I think super bowl this year is stretch. There are still a lot of good NFC teams Tampa’s gotta go through and it’s going to be rough. Getting most of the D is going to help and you’re putting a lot on players coming to the end of their career and second years guys that had 6 good games. I think they can hang with any team but it’s gonna be tough to get through SF if Jimmy has another above par year. It’s gonna be fun though right?!?! Can’t wait!!

  55. Adrnagy Says:

    Imagine that. Hell no. We will be laugh at even more.

    There’s a free agent RB. Lamar Miller that could come in and help.
    There’s a guy out there. A bull if I may. Trent Williams.
    Also Bashaud Breeland

    Bring those in. Then I will feel better.

    SC Bucs Fan Says:
    March 25th, 2020 at 6:52 pm
    Adrnagy I bet you hope the Bucs open 0-5.

  56. JimmyJack Says:

    Colin Cowherd said earlier that the Bucs became instant contenders overnight!!! Wow, I mean wow!! What a great day to be alive as a Bucs fan!!!

    Miller 52 says it’s gonna be fun and he can’t wait. Cheers to that baby!!!

    GO BUCS!!!!

  57. Adrnagy Says:

    You’re right !fun ! A lot of int .. again.

    Bruce Arians doesn’t want Tom Brady to be a ‘checkdown Charlie’

  58. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    I think a super bowl championship is a very long shot at this point. But the prospect is not absolutely impossible. That is what is fun about our situation!

    People are really intrigued with Tampa Bay having the possibility of playing in their home stadium next February (or whenever!).

  59. Adrnagy Says:

    Check out the new Bucs jersey

    TB12 Media Twitter

  60. Bucs Guy Says:

    You aren’t done yet with getting talent. Dion Lewis in FA, trade for Trent Williams and key positions in the draft – OT, S and RB in that order.

  61. JimmyJack Says:

    A lot of INTs for Tom? And what’s a lot for Tom? Like 8? I bet that’s a lot for Tom.

    Please explain this “a lot of INTs” business. Please I beg.

  62. Dangeruss Says:

    you may or may not wanna hear this but Tom Brady from the days he started at the University of Michigan is a winner. I know that Jose thinks the Jameis Winston was America’s quarterback, but the Buccaneers just signed America’s quarterback. Tom Brady is the most durable and has played in every game except for he was suspended by Roger Goodelle I am the one season where he tore his ACL. He he takes every snap and he plays every play. It’s because he still believes he has to prove something as pick number 199. I still remember the championship game that he played against Andrew luck in the Colts. They played the first half to a 7-6 score. The refs came out and took away all the balls because supposedly Tom had underinflated the balls oh and gave him hard balls which he went out in the rain and put a 40 burger on the Colts! Buckle up Tampa Bay because you’re going to be treated over the next two years.

  63. JimmyJack Says:

    I repeat instant contenders!!!!! Overnight!!! The rest of NFC South is shaking in their boots.

  64. Adrnagy Says:

    15 -18 int. Imo
    Brady will mirror somewhat his 2011 season. In which he had Wes, Julian. Branch, Ochocinco. Gronk and Aaron.
    Not much of a running game.

  65. Adrnagy Says:

    30TD. 18int.

  66. LaMarcus Says:

    In BA system has QBs throw a bunch of picks

    Palmer 22, Luck like 20, Manning 28, JW 30….. So brady will throwing about 40 times a game so about 20 ints and it’s ok next at 44 int will go down

  67. Adrnagy Says:

    To all you bandwagon fans—-Listen to the greatest of all time

    What he wants is a bit more weapons,” Montana said, mindful that the Bucs are loaded with arguably the NFL’s best tandem of wide receivers in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. “But more weapons doesn’t always mean you’re going to continue to win.

  68. WestChap Says:

    You can’t predict Brady will throw 18 picks and be taken seriously! Adrnagy, you need to go find yourself a doctor to check yo head.

  69. WestChap Says:

    And, Lamarcus ditto+2 if you seriously think Brady is going to toss 20 to the other team. Crazy talk!

  70. REDZONE BA Fan Says:

    Winning is a Habit – and Brady has the formula and did it consistently at Michigan and Pats. 25 years of great habits! Brady will transfer that attitude and expectations to his Bucs teammates. They are all jacked, and will play harder, every down.

    Love me some JW – but my guy did two things wrong consistently, in 5 years.

    1) Forced passes to WR’s he wanted to throw to (ME13 or Brate), and 2) Poor Mechanics and over-excitement – JW had so many HIGH passes, that went to the other team. Bad decisions is another topic, but for most part, JW INTS are based on 1 & 2.

    Brady will throw to WR who is OPEN, period. Brady will not have favorites. Bucs got their D back. So no excuses for D in 2020. Matt Gay will be more mature and calmer. So no special team issues.

    Wild card is Brady/Leftwich play-calling. Keeping Brady upright with minimal hits. Brady staying healthy for entirety of 2020 is the key for reaching play-offs and SB, period.

    SB or Bust! The LUCK factor, is keeping Brady healthy. That is on BA!

  71. JimmyJack Says:

    Adrnagy……It is bitterly obvisous that you are trying to find any little thing you can to manifest a critism with this team. Your so desperate to find any fault you are now resorted to clinging to a small minut chance that Brady comes in and throws a bunch picks……….It’s so pathetic you gotta go back nearly a decade to find a season where Tom had a somewhat high number of INTs.

    There is no tangible rational behind this thinking. It’s only desperation on your end.

  72. JimmyJack Says:

    And yeah Montana is 100% right. You need more then passing weapons to win in this league. I don’t think anybody would disagree with that. And yet Tom still choose the Buc. I would guess he is smart to understand what Montana said. Perhaps he didn’t just choose the Bucs based on passing weapons.

  73. Adrnagy Says:

    In the other hand. You know nothing.

    Brady used to make average receivers look great. He hasn’t done that in awhile. People underestimate how much gronk masked some of the issues. Also, the pats lost devlin at fullback. Devlin and Gronk were key lead blockers in the run game.(In which we don’t have ) Without the run game and without Gronk getting double covered…. Brady lost his magic. remember the Pats O line has always been above average to strong. Money was spent there to protect him something again we don’t have.

    And you talk back at me that Brady will throw 0int. Your in desperation mode to wear a jersey. And show off.

  74. JimmyJack Says:

    Redzone……Pretty spot on.

    Could also add to your #1 that a lot of open receivers were missed in that process.

  75. JimmyJack Says:

    OK babe you keep banking on Tom to come in and throw 18 picks. Great players like him have made a living proving clowns wrong.

  76. Adrnagy Says:

    And money out of clowns likes you. Bandwagon. Two face fans

  77. JimmyJack Says:

    Oh right…….I just stuck it out with this team for the last two decades of futility. And if it all falls apart next year I plan on being there through it. Yep that’s me your typical bandwagon fan.

    —————————————-
    No argument here @Jimmy. JW missed finding the right “open” receivers when seeking his favorites. Just another JW flaw in his package of who he is. Hopefully JW will learn at his next stop.

    Tom will look for who is open – and expect WR to make a play. BA just has to keep Brady upright for the season. Tom experience SHOULD take care of that issue, with his quick release and knowing when to throw away or Dirt-it.

  79. Mike Johnson Says:

    I’m simply not buying in just yet. I’ve been a fan before a lot of you were in diapers. Went to the very 1st game played in old Ray Jay called the Sombrero. The hype machine is churning loud and fast. We’ve been here countless times in the last decade without winning seasons or playoffs. A 43 yr old experienced QB does not solve all of our problems. Older Buc fans know this. So I’ll just let you cheerleaders cheer on. Nothing wrong with that. But the games still have to be played and injuries will occur. I hope to hell we got a good backup in mind. We might need him sooner than a lot of you..cheerleaders think.

  80. Pick6King Says:

    Breaking News………Jamoist Winston………Mr. Pick 6……..America’s anal wart………Pro Bowl alternate……….remains unemployed.

    Just a PSA for the nuthuggers and Joe.

    BA was right on to put the blame on turnovers for last year’s results. There’s no bigger statistic in the NFL. And Jamoist deserves to get his nose rubbed into the carpet for it.

  81. Alan j Scott Says:

    I am true blue Patriots Fan
    Tom Brady = GOAT.
    Tampa Bay just Got the best QB ever.
    Even at 43….. His work ethics are number one better than any player in the NFL
    The man knows football, he came to Tampa
    To show the NFL…. he’s the Best ever…
    Just watch….when Tampa heading to the playoffs
    Then when Brady lands you into the Super Bowl
    Every Tampa fan will celebrate.
    So right now sit back relax and enjoy the playoff run baby

  82. REDZONE BA Fan Says:

    @MIke Johnson – AGREE, my man! This time last year – the Browns were in SB, per FA signings and roster. NOT!!!

    I admit that I am jacked by Tom Brady signing and what he brings to Bucs, in terms of leadership and culture shift.

    My big fear is that Tom Terrific will go DOWN by game 5 via significant hits to his body/legs.

    JW endured a lot of big hits, whether his own fault or not. But at 25, JW got back up and played through a lot of injury issues, most never reported. Torn meniscus (painful) and broken thumb.

    And if posters want to poo-poo these injuries – so be it. But if you personally have ever had torn meniscus – IT HURTS to walk, and especially PIVOT. Good luck running for your life and throwing a football. And broken or fractured bone in your hand – yep, it hurts!

    NET – Bucs O-Line has to protect Tom better than they did for JW. They will do that. And Tom will protect himself by getting rid of ball faster than JW did, which will help the O-Line. There will still be big hits on Tom, given BA offense.

    I will be rooting for Bucs to win big, get to playoffs and SB. Still holding my breath, as I am not confident Brady will be QB by end of year….Hoping – not confident.

    Who are the two losses, and why?

    Thanks for the perspective, Alan j Scott.

    We’ve got some commenters here that just don’t realize what kind of coach we have here in Tampa Bay after seeing what he did in his first year. He is the best coach the Buccaneers have had since Jon Gruden passed through.

    Even if we win 14 games this year with Tom Brady under center those folks will not understand why he is called the G.O.A.T.

    In the financial world they have a disclaimer in a nutshell it says past earnings are not indicative of future earnings. Income building funds are typically lower yield but they’re steady Freddie like Brady. He has the steadiest record of playing at the top of his game for 20 years. Even his worst season statistically was better than many younger qbs especially our former. See you guys who aren’t objective about our former make yourselves out to look even more the fools to those who hate him because he proved them right and now we have a qb who is a proven winner and you’re doom and gloom. Now of course we should temper this we goin to the Super Bowl baby schtick but dang………… can’t you guys at least see the forest before the trees and have some enthusiasm for theupcomingseason???

    Pick6 just shut up with your stupidity and leave it alone. The man did nothing to you personally. Stop being such an imbocile!

    Arians had never had a losing season (in the NFL) until last year either. My heart tells me that the playoffs are a no-brainer, but I’ve followed this team long enough to know better. I’ll believe it when it happens.
