“I Don’t Accept Anything This Week At All”

January 7th, 2021

There are at least a couple of guys cracking whips at One Buc Palace.

Joe asked Bucco Bruce Arians today to expand on his comments last night to the nation on SiriusXM NFL Radio. The head coach had noted Tom Brady raised his expectation level in practice this week and it’s been fun to watch.

“It’s just even more attention to detail,” Arians explained today with a wry expression.

“Some things he might have let go and talked on the side, he (laughs), he addresses immediately. Same with me. I don’t accept anything this week at all. If it’s a little bit off, if it’s two yards off your reception area, you better get your ass in the right spot.”

Joe liked that Arians said he, too, has upped the bar when it comes to the details. That’s coaching experience. You can demand excellence every week, but when you enhance the nitpicking on execution during a playoff week, that sends a clear message.

    My worry is not with the offense, it’s with the defense. They better be riding those guys with attention to detail because our back field tends to struggle in that area.

    Really hope we just come out and out this thing away early. Guess we will see… If we struggle, even if we win, will raise concerns for the following week

    Even just a few plays practiced until executed perfectly can become unstoppable!

    I sincerely hope the same thing is happening with the defense… Meaning if you’re in press coverage, actually press the guy at the LOS instead of giving him a free release! Maintaining gap integrity, knowing your zone assignments, etc…

    LFG Bucs!!

    When they practice well, they seem to play well. As for the defense, who’s to say that they’re not being held to the same exacting standards?

    about 53 hours until game time !

    Unbelievable exactly. I’m tired of seeing our guys 8yds off on 4th and 3 but what’s even worse is to see them in press but allow a free release. Reroute the guy get hands on them disrupt the timing.

    If cd3 plays the defense well take a big step in the right direction. We need 2 turnovers sat night to get this win. Also no gifts on offense. The winner or the turnovwr margin will win this game period.

    will says. u nailed it!!!!!!! seems like every damn game the corners are doing that. Also seems like Bowles waits till halftime and looks at film and says “wow thats not good. Then we are behind and Tompa to the rescue. Hey Todd, how bout trying that at the beginning. Bump their tight ends at the line just enough to disrupt him. Who say this works???????? Bill Bilichick. The Pats beat the Chiefs twice in a yr including the AFC Champ game using this plan

    The Bucs & Brady will do fine as long as they keep Leftwitch from interfering.
