Coaches Hope To Arrive At One Buc This Week

June 7th, 2020

Most Buccaneers players are due to report back to work on July 21, but for football staff the timeline is accelerated.

On SiriusXM radio, Harry Mayes asked Bucco Bruce Arians about his coaching staff returning to work this week at One Buc Palace. That’s the goal, Arians explained.

“Yeah, we’re hoping. Got our fingers crossed that at least part of our staff will get in [the week of June 7] and the rest of the staff the following week,” Arians said.

The head coach, as he explained, is no fan of Zoom technology. So Joe thinks it’s especially significant for things to get back to normal for the coaching staff, even if the players aren’t coming in until later. Of course, players rehabilitating injuries can be in the building, and subsequently mingling with Arians when he returns.

Arians talked about the “camaraderie and accountability” lost because The Sickness wiped out spring practices this year. So the sooner normalcy is restored the better.

    Here’s to hoping the team gels quickly

    We can have 200k people protest in major cities tho! And I can promise you, no spike in corona deaths will come of this. However let’s just try to keep talking about only the coaches returning in a building with only 50 other people with a straight face. What a disgusting hypocrite world we live in

    I see you are invoking your right to speak your mind…

    No Zoom can create team camaraderie, and no championship has ever been won without it.

    There is no technology substitute for real team-building than the pain and bleeding together creates.

    When I look back on my football career, I miss the camaraderie that comes from brutal pre-season and practice sessions, by far, the most. Second place is the lockerroom after a win.

    I hope we have a season. I just have this eerie feeling this virus will make a comeback after all this protesting.

  6. SOEbuc Says:

    At least we have a good coaching staff.

    Jean you make me laugh. How much would you like to bet that there will be no covid related death spike. Name your price. Memorial Day was now the requisite 14 days ago. Know how many deaths Florida had yesterday? 27. Out of 21 million. Whooooo carrrrres. You guys have been had with this BS scam

    Shame on you, Gopher face, for trying to bring reason to this blog. Don’t you know the rules of logic got suspended when Brady came to the Bucs. The rest of the world may be trying to dodge the virus, but not us. Full steam ahead!
    I just looked up Florida’s infection stats and I saw a ~35,000 cases in 7 May go to >60,000 in 3 weeks! No problemo. It only kills to old and already sick. What the heck.
    Jean Lafitte, careful you are coming close.
    Draft for 2021.

    The rest of the world trying to dodge the virus? Unless it involves the left and their agenda with their paid protestors trying to abolish capitalism. Oh I’m sorry, I mean “racism.” Gathering 200k people is ok as long as it fits your narrative huh lefty? You lefties sure do love to be pandered to though. Dems will have them believe racism will magically go away if Biden is elected! Dumb dirty libs

    It’s going to be a tough decision for all the local lawmakers to decide how to allow the NFL season to go forward. Currently more States have growing cases of C-19 than are in decline. In places like AZ Hospitalizations of patients with suspected and confirmed C-19 have hit a new record and the state’s largest health system has reached capacity for patients needing external lung machines.

    Gofortheface-You should stay away from claims like all the millions of protesters around the world are paid somehow. Or any for that matter. Soros, Bill Gates and 5G somehow have done everything bad in your world- we get it. It makes you sound like a coo coo bird and undermines anything else you say around sane people. It makes for fun when you leave family gatherings but around here we like to stick to reality and Buccaneer football.

    They only thing that will go away WHEN Biden gets elected will be a narcistic, ignorant, spiteful and possibly treasonous occupant in the Whit House.

    I was never a good football player like you. I was a decent athlete but had what boxers call a glass jaw. I just saw black too many times. The rest of the pain I could endure but I did not enjoy getting knocked out.

    Meanwhile Cobra I assume you’ve seen the movie “The Junction Boys”. The story of Bear Bryant’s first year at Texas A&M. Ten brutal days. Practice sun up to sun down and meetings into the night. A large number of guys just drifted out of camp. Bryant was famous as were other coaches of his day for not letting his players have water…that was for sissies he wanted TOUGH guys.

    Of course that is now against the law. Do you believe there are limits Cobra…actually I’m sure you do but where do you set the balance…has the CBA restricted practice too much?

    You don’t count because Oregon. Something bad in the water there.

    5 hour moderation is total BS.

  15. Bradinator Says:

    Hooray! Coaches back in the Office! Next up…players back at work! Then we can actually talk about fun stuff. Really want to see how the practices differ with Brady standing back there. Looking forward to seeing how the new kids look. See? Glass is still half full for me.

  16. Cobraboy Says:

    @stpetebucsfans: I know Junction Boys. I don’t know of I can compare.

    I just know that all through college and my first pro season training camps were totally brutal. 3-a-days in the blazing August sun in AL and FL.

    But it was part of the game.

    And it built a team.

    There is something about sweating and bleeding together that builds “team.”

    The CBA back then said “They Own You.”

    Yeah, I know, I know, times change in 49 years…
