“That’s Unexplainable To Me”

September 13th, 2020

Bucco Bruce Arians was not a happy man moments ago on a Zoom call with Joe and reporters after a sloppy Bucs loss.

Pre-snap penalties will drive any coach nuts, but they certainly shouldn’t come from the defense, especially not a nose tackle over the football on 4th down. But that happened to Vita Vea in the first half, and then Ndamukong Suh followed with more happy feet on the next play.

“We practiced 4th and short and never jump offsides a hundred times,” exasperated Arians said after the game. “That’s unexplainable to me.”

Arians acknowledged that the Bucs’ overall sloppiness is on him.

“There’s no doubt. It’s my job to make that stop,” the head coach said.

The Bucs finished with 9 penalties for 103 yards. They led the NFL last season in penalties with just under 9 per game.

    So sick of the penalties, almost makes it unwatchable.

    I would have loved to hear the speech Arians have after this game. If he wasn’t up to his knees in everyone’s a$$ there’s a problem. Actually surprised he made it to the post game interview without having a heart attack from screening at the poor play today.

    I still think this team has way too many tools to fail…… but it was pretty bad today.

    the end is near………

    Miller…there may be too many tools on this team, you’re right. And Bruce is the opposite of what you’re implying: he’s way too hands off at this age.

  5. Buddy Says:

    Yea he can’t say anything because since early August all we heard was how great everything was going daily at camp, when no one was really watching and we had to take his work. Now he and him coaches got exposed.

  6. Miller5252 Says:

    Christopher, I won’t disagree with the too many tools on this team. You get a team that works great together is better then having that stacked team on paper. All those superstar egos have to fit in a locker room and if they can’t sacrifice for the team it turns into a big problem.

    The jaguars look better then the bucs.. this team looks slow.. gronk has lost a step brady needs speedy recievers like scotty moller godwin and evans are a waste in this offense..but hey what do i know

  10. firethecannons Says:

    agree with Buddy

  11. Coburn Says:

    Penalties were the whole reason we never got momentum on offense. Too many 3rd and long . Every time we a tuallt got a clean play to take a shot we got dpi down the field. That tells me saints actually had a pretty tough time trying to contain all of our weapons

  12. Blu Says:

    Dude never adjusted his system to fit the new personnel. Beli and McDaniels would have been salivating to have this much talent in NE. Would have looked alot better thn this too.

  13. chummaster01 Says:

    Jameis stunk it up today!! with this much offensive talent Winston would have thrown for 500 yards!!! Brady cant get away from rush like Jameis!!Pretty funny how Raheem won 10 games with minimal talent then they gave Shiano the world . Then let Jameis get mauled for 4 years and gave the GOAT the world and he got LESS with Moe I wonder why I see a pattern!!! Open your eyes people!! BTW the real football experts called it exactly right 8-8 this season.

    That is exactly right. It is your job and you obviously have failed at your job for a long time. We led the league last year in penalties. And here we are again, at your first opportunity for redemption, looking like the Keystone Cops, ALL bc of YOU BA.

  15. Casual Observer Says:

    That stupid count off-side jump was crucial.

  16. Wsj 63 Says:

    Chummaster I’m with you 100%

  17. Wsj 63 Says:

    And its funny how everyone want to blame the everyone els for his INTs but if that was jameis they would be Rippen him apart. We waste money on a washed up QB.

  18. Hindsight2020 Says:

    Brady is washed up. Hope you didn’t think he was going to be the savior of your franchise.

  19. SHAMROCK Says:

    Bad coaching, bad play calling. Defense wasn’t too bad. Except for some stupid penitilies

  20. BigBob Says:

    Penalties were bad. But Jamal Dean’s lazy half effort to allow Breeze to connect with Jared Cook should get him benched. It blew the game open.
    The whole team let down from there.
    You play like that in the NFL you don’t play…

  21. Eddie Says:

    Don’t put too much into one bad game. Let’s see how they play week.

  22. Wsj 63 Says:

    Brady started off where he left off Last season throwing pics

  23. MJE5130 Says:

    Seriously, you have to look at this as preseason. Brady is the GOAT, but this is still a new playbook for him, new players, new coaches. There was no preseason and the Saints are probably a top 3 team in this league. Wait til next week and then we will see.

  24. Wideleftandright Says:

    My thoughts exactly!
    Lollygagging ,I couldn’t believe it.
    I would have jerked his arse off the field and he would be so far down the depth chart he wouldn’t see the field for months or until he demonstrated he wanted to play.

  25. Wideleftandright Says:

    Look at the ensuing kickoff and you will see dean whiff a block on one of the saints.Terrible!
    Almost as Bad as Donovan Smith’s whiffs !!
