Bruce Arians: “It’s Probably Going To Take Three Or Four More Weeks”

September 24th, 2020

Bucco Bruce Arians got a little candid talking to one of his great friends.

Joe’s referring to the Tampa Bay head coach sharing a little time with Hall of Fame general manager Bill Polian on SiriusXM NFL Radio last night. Polian was Arians’ boss in Indianapolis, and sometimes Arians calls him “Coach.”

Polian asked Arians a question a lot of Bucs fans want answered. How much longer does he think it will take to get the offense in sync and firing on all cylinders?

Arians actually had a quick answer.

“It’s probably going to take three or four more weeks,” Arians said. “You know, [Tom Brady] saw one defense, our defense, for three weeks. And then he goes up against the Saints, which is different. Carolina is different, totally different. So he’s seeing different defenses. So it’s just a matter of once we get through the gamut of how many times we play [against] Cover-2, quarters, whatever a team’s base [is], 3-4, 4-3, then we get to repeat against a team. I think that’s when he’s going to throw his best, when we get to repeat against the same defense.”

Very interesting take by Arians, who likely is seeing Brady’s relative discomfort compared to the command he expects will come later.

Still, Joe is certain the Bucs have enough talent and synergy in the offense to outscore the decimated Broncos, which still have a few studs on defense, including free agent pick-up Jurrell Casey along the D-line.

  2. Ndog Says:

    But but but we were told he had seen everything and this would be no problem from the jump.

    More lies from the king of liars.

  3. Clean House Says:

    Shouldn’t be this complicated- it’s a lack of intelligence on the part of the coaching staff

  4. Clean House Says:

    Womder How Jameis would be doing in year 2 of the vaunted offense….
    The legendary offense….the genius offense…..

  5. El Buco Realisto Says:

    So according to ole stale biscuit, the bucs will get 10 games out of the old cheating goat, which the season could be out of hand or the old cheating goat hurt by poor tackle play!!!!!!!!! So this is the “win” now coach plan???????? The best kick of the Bucs Season, will be when ole stale biscuit gets kicked to the curb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Go Broncos!!!!!!!!! errrrrrr, I mean go bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Bucfanforever Says:

    Clean House

    – he’d make Russell Wilson look like a practice squad player.

  7. Youngbucs Says:

    Lol sad bunch of losers big mad he got rid of their man crush 😭😭😭😭😂😂😂😂🙄

  8. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Maybe Brady can Google “how to figure out opposing defenses” ………

    I hear that’s what the truly great QBs do.

  9. Youngbucs Says:

    By king of liars you mean the former QB who hid information from the team then lied to the organization and his teammates????? The same QB who can’t get an endorsement deals can’t even get his lying face in a commercial ever????? The bad for business on and off the field that king of liars???????

  10. Greg Says:

    @ndog but but but I know it is painful for you see your guy on the sidelines holding a clip board but after five years at 7-9 the Bucs couldn’t wait any longer to part ways with the turnover machine regardless of the 5k passing. His ceiling was hit get over it. .The team lost more than it won and you are not making the playoffs . This team with a true leader will make you spew even more stupid venom totally unfounded. Go to the Saints board you are stale.

  11. Youngbucs Says:

    Oh I forgot can’t even have his face on the stadium that guy?????

  12. tbbucs3 Says:

    Blah blah blah

    Arians is all talk no action.

  13. El Buco Realisto Says:

    What is more impressive???? Ole stale biscuit ability to spout bull spit daily????? Or the sheep’s ability to swallow ole stale biscuit’s bull spit down daily???????????

  14. Greg Says:

    Oh, my bad the Saints board is probably not interested in someone opining about a third string QB

  15. Cainishere Says:

    Last weekend the score should have been 52 – 17 but because of WR TE and RB miscues and drops we lost potentially 21 – 24 points. The passes in most cases were PERFECT You would think the receiver TE and RB corps should be conducting hands exercises. Loads of receptions. I hope to see some stripping of the ball during tackles this week
    GO BUCS!!!!

  16. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Brady will be fine. Some of you guys are pathetic. You know who you are.

  17. Craig Says:

    It is not like Brady is a rookie. He has seen every kind of defense before, and he has won against them.

    The Bucs offense will get better as the season rolls on. Timing and secondary moves of the receivers will become a muscle memory thing.

    That still doesn’t mean that they are nowhere now. Especially against a decimated Broncos team.

    2-1 after Sunday

  18. Cobraboy Says:

    If Brady has been sub-optimum, then this will be a glorious offense in Tampa in the coming weeks.

  19. Usedtocould Says:

    Realist, almost as impressive as your lack of ability to properly use punctuation.

  20. SB Says:

    Receivers Focked Brady this past Sunday.
    Anyone who says different should start watching LaCrosse.

  21. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    People who understand football see things in a different light. This COVID things has thrown a big monkey wrench into the situation across the NFL.

    The one team that I have seen that seems to be the least affected is the Kansas City Chiefs. Of course I have only seen maybe 1/5 of the teams so far.

    The lack of reps have hurt a lot of teams early in this season. The Buccaneers are no exceptions.

    Conditioning is already rearing its ugly head. Look at the significant injuries mounting across the league in just two weeks.

    Bruce Arians is telling it like it is. We are not going to know what we have for several more weeks. That’s being realistic!

  22. Joe in Michigan Says:

    When did Arians say everything would be good from the jump? I think someone is lying about Arians lying.

  23. Cajun 69 Says:

    Get a grip people! It’s week 3 of a crazy year. Your the worst dam fans ever try maybe praising a team starting out fresh. You act like a bunch of spoiled brats.We are going to have a great team u got to give them a little time to ajust morons lol GO Bucs!!!!

  24. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Clean House

    Double standard.

    If it’s the coach and the offense, why would Mr. Int be any better?

    Can’t have it both ways.


  25. Jason Says:

    Anybody seen Jameis at the Heisman House yet? Hmmmm….

  26. Wayne PEREZ Says:

    Ndog you’re a ass

  27. Chesapeake Bucco Says:

    Jimbo, you nailed it!

  28. m0j0 Says:

    It really is just a matter of time. The offense is figuring out what it’s good at and what it’s not. Seems the tendency in week 2 was to run more NE type formations, and that’s just fine in my book, as long as it helps Brady succeed in moving the offense down the field and being productive. That, and the development of a run game has the Bucs offense trending up.

  29. New Buc's fan Says:

    NE fan for 20 years. Brady fan. I looked forward to being a Buc’s fan. I am really disappointed in the apparent lack of even having any football IQ or patience that some of you have. Do you even watch the games? Brady had 200 yards at halftime and then someone put grease on everyone’s hands. It will be OK. They really needed a preseason.

  30. JimBuc2 Says:

    Hmm.. Let’s not overcomplicate this. TB12 has twenty years experience playing professional football, with six World Championsips to his credit. There is not now, nor likely ever will be, anybody else walking around with those creds. Let alone strapping up and actually putting that peerless experience into competitive practice on an NFL gridiron. See a defence again? Really BA?? Perhaps you can tell us a defence TB12 has not seen during two decades of competition. I ain’t worried. Not one bit.
    Go Bucs!

  31. Jeffbuc Says:

    You trolls don’t even understand football enough to understand what coach was saying. Yeah Brady has seen every defense with the same offense he ran his whole career. Now he has a new offense to master. So he needs to see the defenses to put it all together to know how this offense will work against them.

    Jameis Winston couldn’t figure that out in 5 years. Brady needs 5 weeks. But but but that.

  32. Bucsfan Says:

    We are 1:1 on short off season!! Give the man a chance! This site has a bunch of whiny grumpy old men making comments on here 🙄 😂

  33. Bucsfan Says:

    At New Bucs fan – finally a intelligent comment on this site! Refreshing!!

  34. Buc Bro Says:

    Jeez, when will the Bucs ever get a creative coach like Kyle Shannahan or Sean McVay?

    Arians is 8-10 here and has no idea what to do with all of these weapons

  35. djMonkey Says:

    Some of you need to find another team. A real bucs fan supports. Yeah everyone’s a critic, coach and armchair qb. Stop watching buc football trolls… Buc Life 4evA!

  36. TOM Says:

    What the hell is Arian’s talking about? Brady has probably seen every defense immaginable. So I have no idea what he’s refering to.
