“It’s All Outside Noise”

December 30th, 2020

National TV appearance.

The non-believers are out there. And Bucs coach Bucco Bruce Arians isn’t listening.

The Bucs absolutely destroyed the Dixie Chicks and the toothless Lions the past two weeks, hanging record-setting losses on those franchises.

But for the critics, there is no respect for the Bucs. “Eh, Atlanta is a four-win team. Meh, you beat the Lions, big deal!”

Well, Arians set the critics straight while at the same time telling them he doesn’t give a s(p)it what they say.

Arians was a guest on “Good Morning Football” this morning, seen weekday mornings on NFL Network (albeit this week without resident it-girl Kay Adams).

Today, Arians was asked about those who dismiss the past two Bucs wins as taking advantage of patsies.

“Every game is a new game,” Arian said. “Look at what the Jets did to the Rams. The Falcons taking the Chiefs to the brink this past weekend. There are no easy games in this league. If you don’t show up on Sunday you are going to get beat, and beat bad.

“So, they can say what they want. It’s all outside noise. The only thing that matters is this locker room. And there is a really strong belief in this locker room right now that we are a good football team.”

It might have been JoeBucsFan.com reader “Joe in Michigan,” who commented that even the Detroit Free-Press piled on the Bucs, calling out Arians for running up the score last week at Ford Field.

Yeah, running up with score with Blaine Gabbert. Joe’s heard it all now.

You know the best way to shut up critics? Win. Just keep winning, baby.

    Joe in Michigan, nice shout out! Great interview with coach.

  3. BucEmUp Says:

    If they play press coverage, blitz and let Brady read the defenses and stop forcing chunk plays against good defenses they will be fine…but I dont believe that will happen.

  4. Chris Boyd Says:

    as thrilled as I am that we finally broke this playoff drought, and have a chance at a real push, I LOVE the fact that we have some really great people that are affiliated with our organization. Arians, ME13, Brady… these guys give back, because they want to, not because they think that they should, and that makes me proud to be a Bucs fan

  5. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Sour grapes are for losers. It’s our job to score their job to stop us. If we keep scoring it’s their fault not ours.

  6. Roy T. Buford Says:

    Silence the critics by going into the playoffs by having four quarters of complemetary football in Week 17. We need O, D, and ST to show and prove they are playoff ready. Until then, the critics will be critics, justifiably so. Until then, Arians will be just a mediocre coach. Until then, the Bucs will a team that looks great on paper but you never know who will show up. Until then, slow starts aren’t anomalies but are very common. Let’s go Bucs…show them all!

  7. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Yes, the score might’ve been 77-7 if the Bucs hadn’t called off the dogs.

    Did anyone bitch about the NO or Buffalo score. Buffalo was throwing with 3 min left in the game. Not everyone gets the participation trophy, it was a time to work on things and confirm the weapons and the system can coexist. Jeez, BA took Brady out, ME 13 would of shattered the 1000 yd mark, Brady would have beat the most passing yards in a single game of 542 and possibly threw for 8 tds. Now that would be piling on. Here’s my answer, PLAY BETTER!

    In the NFL pulling your QB at the half is HUGE. It’s proof enough that you respect the other team and will not try to needlessly run up the score.

    Having said that the next guy in…Blaine Gabbert wants to PLAY. It’s the highlight of his season. A chance to see if all the work in practice really worked in games.

    And obviously it did. Gabbert’s TD pass to Gronk was a thing of beauty…a tight spiral between two safeties hitting Gronk right on the money in stride.

    Do they want Gabbert to overthrow him?

    Great interview Coach. All truth…
