Bruce Arians: “I’m Going To Beat The Sh*t Out Of Them

March 27th, 2021

The message is clear from the Buccaneers head coach; nothing about this summer for the Bucs will be soft and easy.

Bucco Bruce Arians knows what it’s like to attempt to repeat as a Super Bowl champ. It’s a brutal task. And it appears a lesson he learned during his Steelers days was that a champion needs to grind extra hard when it returns to work.

“When our guys come back, and that’s my job, I’m going to beat the sh*t out of them,” Arians told The Loose Cannons show on YouTube last night. “We’re going back to basics and we’re going to have one hell of a training camp and know what our foundation is.”

And Arians seemed awfully excited about a normal training camp experience, repeating that he thrives on being in players’ faces and that he got through the entire 2020 season without doing a virtual meeting.

Joe loves the message that’s being sent. And Joe believes it’s very calculated — even if Arians ends up going a little easy on his many veterans later in August.

    They have assembled one of the most talented rosters seen in the NFL in years. A full training camp with BA and TB smoothing all aspects bodes well. Only injuries can stop this team. What a season in prospect. A fun ride.

    Draft your most vunerable depth positions!

    I watched the Super Bowl DVD last night. I wept with joy.

    Reminds me of this Jimmy Johnson quote:

    “I would have been a bigger SOB.’ Because as you have success, players get complacent…. ”

    “So the only guy that’s got the hammer is the head coach,” Johnson said. “I had to drill them. I was harder on them after the first Super Bowl than what I would have been, and I was even harder after the second Super Bowl.”

    This is a very bad idea
    This team needs to have as much rest as possible to get back to the Super Bowl
    Those extra 4 games played last year is gonna kick their ass by the second half of the season this year if they don’t rest up.
    This team knows how to play ball – they don’t need their asses kicked in training camp – its the same offing group of guys running mostly the same offing plays.
    Arians is kind of a big windbag sometimes
    REST THEM UP so they don’t fall flat by the last quarter of the season

    This team could, and I said could, be one of the greatest teams of all time. With this roster, TB under center, Arians directing the mission, and Leftwich and Boyles calling the plays, they could be unbeatable. The only uncontrollable is injuries, so they need to draft for depth.

    Arians knows he can’t wear the guys out. There are other ways to kick butt without it being physical.

  8. lowercaseg Says:

    I honestly would not mind our 1st draft pick being on an extra offensive lineman. You never know who might go down.

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I sure wish Lovie/BA wouldn’t use such fowl language…..can’t he get his fu^^ing point across without it.

    Rest….who needs rest….they’ve had a week!!!

    BA has been such an underrated coach.

  11. Pewter Power Says:

    Chiefs won the Super Bowl and were in desperate need of receivers and a running back. It’s beyond crazy the only possible position that could even possibly see a starter is maybe kick returner or strong safety. We are literally all set except at the back up positions. If JPP and/or Shaq get hurt cancel Christmas.

  12. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Too much nonsense if you ask me coming from Bucco Brucie’s mouth…….

    Just play football like you did last year at the end of the season and they’ll make the playoffs again

    …….who gives a flipping fly “F” bout training camp????🤷‍♂️

  13. J$MCSports Says:

    I dont think he will be working JPP or Suh some of the other vets either but the young guys gotta be ready to go (Vea&White) to be the new leaders of the future

    These guys are professional athletes. They can recover in 24 hours, after a normal game. The four Extra games last year will not effect their recovery, this year. They will be in top, top shape. TB12 will keep everyone’s head in the right place, he has been there. Bruce also. Bruce knows he will have to be on their backside, and push harder. If Coach Bowles, can get the defense to play like the Super Bowl, every week, the Bucs are going 20-0. The 49ers, Packers, Rams are going to try and knock off the champs. The Pack have not make any significant moves. If Larry Fitz shows up in TB, Katie bar the door, the Bucks may go 40-0, over the next two years.
