Bucs Will Halt Practice Tomorrow For 30 Minutes

February 2nd, 2021

Experience is a great teacher.

Tom Brady isn’t the only Buccaneer who has been to a Super Bowl. Bucco Bruce Arians has been there as an assistant coach.

And from Arians’ experience, Super Bowl halftime is challenge, specifically the extended 30-minute break to accommodate the live music show and big-money commercials.

Speaking last night on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Arians said the Bucs will resume normal game-week practicing with one twist. Arians will stop practice midway through for a 30-minute break. He wants players sitting around relaxing and talking with each other and coaches to simulate Super Bowl halftime.

Arians said he’ll see how the team responds in practice following the break. If it’s not crisp, then he’ll repeat the process in Thursday’s practice.

Smart move by Arians.

    It’s like practicing with the music blaring to simulate crowd noise or practicing when it’s raining. Good coaches should prepare for all contingencies, including an extended half-time break. Good planning coach! Now it’s all about execution. You’ve got this Bucs. Bring it home!

    Smart! Except they don’t need to advertise the whole game plan.

    Lovie would pretend the extended halftime doesn’t exist.

    Win this MF! Arians! You can do it! Don’t be stubborn. Do whatever it takes to win.

    You guys are hillarious. How is saying you will have a 30 minute break in practice advertising your game plan? And what does lovie have to do with this? Because im sure the other 54 superbowl winning coaches all took 30 minute breaks during practice smdh. You guys are hillarious!!! Guess what….30 minute break or no, the game will come down to game plan and execution period. And no, a 30 minute break is not a game plan.

    “and coaches to simulate Super Bowl halftime”

    Now I’m picturing Byron Leftwich singing “The Blinding Lights”.

    There were some haters early on… But this guy is a lifelong football coach. Between him and Brady and Bowles… I honestly don’t think they’re going to leave any stone unturned.

    The biggest fear I have for them on defense is early on. The defense has been playing lights out but they still have some lapses now and then and they simply can’t do that against this team.
    Also worried about them being so damn fired up that they over pursue and create cut back lanes for Hill or Mahomes. They have to contain both of them

    At first i thought the break would be so he could run to the trunk of his car.

    All joking aside, this is a fantastic idea. They should do every day weather it works well once or not. Good thing were not in the Super Dome, otherwise they’d have to halt practice for 2 hours.
