Calculated Quiet From Bruce Arians

August 8th, 2021

Two weeks into Bucs training camp and one off-field reality stands out.

One of the most popular — and accommodating — interviews in the NFL, Bucco Bruce Arians, has been just about fully removed from the national stage.

And trust Joe, the requests for him poured in.

Of course, Arians has done his mandatory news conferences at One Buc Palace after practice, but Joe believes the coach has been otherwise invisible outside of a five-minute sitdown after one practice with NFL Network.

Joe is confident that Arians knows if he does interviews, either with his 2018 colleagues at CBS or good buddy Bill Polian on SiriusXM NFL Radio, for example, he inevitably will be asked about the Super Bowl and last season. Arians has ordered players to forget last season, so he’s sort of walking the walk on not putting himself in positions to dredge up the Super Bowl win.

Joe likes the strategy, though Joe misses hearing Arians all over the place.

Notice how Bucs players and assistant coaches have largely been shunning national interviews, as well. It can’t be a coincidence.

    Super Bowl? What Super Bowl?

    This team needs to win a division championship host a home playoff game. They haven’t done that in well over decade and it’s disgraceful. 🙂

    Win the Division and secure a 1st round bye in the playoffs. Those are the goals this year. Do that and everything else is gravy.

    There’s only so many times a man can say “We haven’t won sh*t” to the media.

    Idk. I’ve always been a bit concerned about this continued strategy. For G-d’s sake. They ARE Super Bowl Champions. IMO they need to continue to ply like Super Bowl Champions and never forget it one bit! I, too, would be glad to hear more from Arians and the team. Especially where one can hear the questions that the press is asking..
