The Belichick Way Of Motivating After A Great Season

July 12th, 2021

One of Tom Brady’s good buddies was talking about entering a football season as a top-dog champion looking to repeat.

Former Patriots offensive coordinator Charlie Weis has been there before, calling plays for Tom Brady’s first three Super Bowl seasons (2001, 2003 & 2004).

Now an analyst (with little filter) on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Weis had to laugh today while talking about Bucco Bruce Arians’ recent comments about the Bucs needing to stay “the hunter” versus being “the hunted.”

“Let’s face it, you know, the comment’s a joke. No disrespect to Bruce, but I mean you’re on the top of the pedestal. Everyone is shooting for you. You know that. So we know what reality is. We’ll cut through that to start off with,” Weis bellowed. “But let me exchange it into a phrase that [Bill] Belichick would use. Belichick would always try to find a way to play the disrespect card. ‘They don’t think you’re any good. They don’t think you can do it. They thought that last year was a fluke; you’re a one-hit wonder.'”

Weis went on to say Arians could easily spin “stay the hunter” into getting the Bucs believing they has a lot to prove to the media and beyond.

“We were always playing the underdog or disrespect card. Always, every opportunity you could,” Weis said of his years in New England.

Try to find every mental angle you can, Weis implored, noting quotes from opposing players and coaches were popular talking points all week long in a Belicheat locker room.

Weis thinks Arians needs to go that route because Arians’ claim of running a brutal training camp is another joke. “Powder puff” football is the only way to describe August practices nowadays versus when Brady or Ndamukong Suh entered the league, according to Weis.

Interesting thoughts by Weis, who is confident Brady will bring the right brand of leadership and motivation in the face of being the runaway favorite in the NFC. Joe thinks Arians will find the right touch, as well.

    Brady will be the one to set the tone and mindset.

    Not one person in that locker room wants to draw his ire.

  2. Medicated Pete Says:

    Weis was verbally abusive to the female co-host today IMO. I can no longer listen to him. He has serious issues & his co-hosts keep quitting because of his abuse.

  3. Colonel Angus Says:

    Bucs do has a lot to prove.

  4. Crickett Baker Says:

    Oh yeah. He wants to turn Arians into Belichick?? LOLOLOL. We have a predator attitude now. Why turn it into an effing grudge?

  5. Oneilbuc Says:

    Belichick and Weis develop Brady you can’t take nothing from them. Yall try act like Brady came in balling he wasn’t ask to carry the team . That’s how you develop a quarterback !!

  6. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Who would you rather have Bruce Arians with Tom Brady or Bill Belichick without Tom Brady?, Charlie?

  7. Oneilbuc Says:

    Are we talking about coaching ?? Because if it’s coaches give me Belichick all day . Mac Jones is in a better situation than Kyle Trask and that’s a fact!!

  8. An Erection for Sacks Says:

    Someone is in need of a leather glove slapped across their face.

    Are we all in agreement with who is deserving of this?

  9. Youngbucs Says:

    Oneibucs take your jameis Winston nut hugger mad at the Bucs glasses off!!!! Mac Jones has nothing near the weapons trask has here. If you hate the Bucs so much now go root for another team root for the pats root for the saints. Belichick never did squat without Brady the pats are a complete unknown with out him. Coaches coach players play I don’t care what the sport is name a top coach who never had great players I’ll wait!!!! You are a complete loser dude just give it up already!

  10. Youngbucs Says:

    Tom Brady showed his poise and clutch big time play and hard work before he got to the nfl. 🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡 you think the chiefs developed Mahomes bullspit he’s just a great player any team he went to he was going to be generational. It’s hard to find a franchise QB I don’t care what nonsense you spewing.

  11. Youngbucs Says:

    Why wasn’t belichick getting it done with Bledsoe????? Brady took over the same exact team with the same coach??????

  12. Youngbucs Says:

    Who has weis develop 🤡 he’s had numerous opportunities name them please back up your talk!
    The guy took Vinny Testaverde and Matt Cassel and guided them to Pro Bowl seasons. That’s almost grounds for the Hall of Fame. –Joe

    First it was Kareem hunt, then Andy Reids son and now Frank Clark. It seems like things are not as good as the media portrays them. Between the Ravens, the Bills, the Browns, the Steelers, the up and coming Chargers and their old nemesis the Raiders the Chiefs will probably not make it to face the Bucs in the SuperBowl.

  14. Youngbucs Says:

    That’s funny joe he worked couple of miracles 😂

  15. Oneilbuc Says:

    Lol 😆🤣😂 Youngbucs lol 😆😂🤣😅 !! Why are you mad 😠 because I told the truth it’s nothing wrong when a coach develops a player . That’s not talking down on Brady !! Every player needs a coach . Billchick won 2 superbowls with Gaints as a DC . And he didn’t get fired from the team like BA did in Pittsburgh and Cleveland, and Indianapolis because of his no risk it no biscuit offense. So that’s why I said that about Mac Jones my favorite friend in the world !!!

  16. Youngbucs Says:

    You sound stupid BA won as an assistant also moving the goal post as usual. What has he won as a head coach without Brady? It’s a simple question with a simple answer which is nothing!!!!!! Hey dummy Deion sanders said a couple years ago debating shanon sharpe that Brady would still be Brady. Even if he went to a different team sharpe said no way guess who looks like a fool. Go on YouTube undisputed with sanders on the show years back it’s like he was a prophet spot on with everything he said.

  17. Youngbucs Says:

    Everything you said on this site had been proven false over time. I’ll just sit back and watch you continue to look foolish.

  18. Just Sayin’ Says:

    I think you can be a hunter up on the prover pedestal. Sitting up in a deer blind or clock tower picking off the game. First the NFC South, then the NFC, then the lamb for the slaughter offering the AFC serves up in the Super Bowl.

    My friends you can be rest assured that the GOAT fully understands the “On to Cincinnati” mind set. I will contantly remind all of you. Keep Tommy Boy’s uniform spotless. 16-1 or at worst 15-2. I’ve been a fan for 6 decades
