Arians “Disappointed” In Noise

September 13th, 2020

If someone was trying to reach for an excuse that the fake crowd noise piped into the Superdome may have been too loud and it echoed in an empty stadium, Bucs coach Bruce Arians doesn’t want to hear about it.

In fact, Arians thought the fake noise was so muted, that whoever was in charge of the fake noise was screwing over the hometown Saints.

“Noise?” Arians scoffed when asked if communication issues may have been the result. “There was no noise. We’ve practiced with a heckuva lot more noise than that.

“I was disappointed. I don’t think it was fair to the Saints to have it that low. You could have an easy conversation with someone across the field it was that low.”

Joe certainly remembers the fake crowd noised piped into the Den of Depression during a Bucs scrimmage last month. It was about as loud as a jet airliner ,as Joe could barely hear the planes that flew low over the stadium arriving/departing from Tampa International Airport.

So if folks think fake crowd noise resulted in sloppy play and turnovers and miscommunication by the Bucs, in a long about way Arians said that is baloney.

    I’m disappointed you put a poorly coached team on that field today

    They said it’s only going to be like 70 decibels – that’s like a car on the freeway at 60mph. No idea why they’re keeping it that low, it should be more like 100 decibels – and it would help with energy when watching it on TV where they’re juicing the crowd noise, but the players aren’t reacting with it, which leads to a disconnect.

    It was *much* louder than that at the scrimmage and that was a practice run (for stadium operations as well as the team).

  5. Rod Munch Says:

    Joe – yeah, that’s what I heard, which is why it was so surprising when I heard them say the stadiums will only be at 70db. I’m guessing at practices they were in that 110-120db range, which is more like a real crowd going nuts.

    Sean Peyton said he compared the fake crowd noise to a loud cocktail party.

    Noise…either too loud or too low is just an EXCUSE.

    Stop looking for excuses. Glad BA blew the doors off that lame arse excuse.

    When does Bruce start getting blamed?

  9. Buddy Says:

    So now this old geezer is going to turn into #KLUELESSKOETTER with the excuses?? Come on Grandpa don’t go down that road. Just give the Saints their due and admit you were out coached at times.

    Bruce you lost the game the moment early in the game after driv for the touchdown up 7-0. 4th and about 1/2 a yard and you elect to punt. Tom Brady is your QB and you chose to punt when you had all the momentum. You punt about 40 yards end result of net 30 and saints go down field and score.

    Had you gone for it and got it you possibly could go up two scores causing Saint to chase you. Instead you punt with the worst punter in the NFL!

    stpetebucsfan – hey dummy, did you read the story? He said it was unfair to the Saints, he wasn’t using it as an excuse.

    Bruce does not block and tackle. Poor execution on the offense. Tom is not blaming BA for his pick 6. What about D Smith playing swinging gate for a few plays. Drew Brees had less than 100 yards at the half, besides the loaf by J Dean, they played well enough to win. Brees did not have pass for 20 or more yards until the Loaf. GO BUCS!!!

  13. Iamabuc Says:

    My take is (and not really an excuse for the loss), that the Saints were playing real dirty and with intention to hurt…look at the tape…I believe they really never got away from “Bountygate” modus operandi…gotta keep an eye on that…..🤔

    the no crowds are just plain weird…

    the crowd is the energy…

    Let’s put this behind us. GO BUCS!

  16. JustBucNwin Says:

    I’m disappointed in the play calling and overall execution of your team BA!

  17. Allbuccedup Says:

    Another losing season and BA will haul ass and leave the team in shambles. Then Licht will promote Leftwich to head coach, next year 2022 with the number pick on the 2022 draft the Bucs select!

  18. Oneilbucs Says:

    Allbuccedup Bruce Arians need to go I told yall that his offense is outdated . He set Jamies up to fail to bring in Brady and now every one see it . That playbook was the problem .

  19. Terry Eddy Says:

    I agree with Oneilbucs. Offensive scheme and playbook out-dated.

  20. SHAMROCK Says:

    Blame this one on the coaching or lack of.

    I’m so tired of this covid crap…. IT’S FAKE PEOPLE!!!! It was hijacked for political reason!! Because of TDS!!… Yes it’s a real sickness blah blah blah… But can anyone in here really tell me they’re still scared of it?? The NFL obviously isn’t scared enough of it to stop making money!! Even tho they have 70 year old coaches and owners all over the place??…. Take these stupid masks off, let people come to these games and stop this nonsense!!! Do we REALLY have to deal with all this until Election!!!! This and the pretend fight against pretend racism is just getting freaking old!!

    Thought the same thing should have gone for it on 4th down with a half yard to go. Thought Saints were doing alot of holding. Shake off the dust and go beat Carina on Sunday
