Clyde Christensen: “There’s No Chance Of Complacency”

August 12th, 2021

Some people fear the Bucs might lose a little hunger and set the pirate ship on cruise control at times this summer and fall.

Bucs quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen thinks that’s ridiculous.

“No complacency. You know, there’s no chance of complacency,” Christensen said Tuesday on The Pat McAfee Show.

“It was the same with Peyton [Manning]. This [Brady] guy is not going to allow that to happen. That’s not even an issue. This guy just works and demands of himself and of the team and of the whole building. So it’s really been fun. We’ve stayed healthy. I think he got that knee cleaned up, he feels better. You know I think he feels better physically. I think the whole camp’s been a lot, lot better.”

Man, it sure does feel like the only thing that can take down the Bucs is a Brady injury or some bad football luck.

What a beautiful time to be alive!

Christensen added that he feels the Bucs are a better team, in part because figuring out everything Brady felt good about in the offense last season was a long process. “That took all year,” he said.

    There is at least one guy I’m worried about, and he’s a key player. After that, I can’t think of anyone right now that I would fear suffering from complacency.

    I’m worried about Donovan Smith. I start reaching for pills just thinking about him

    It was a overall good interview, BTW maybe it was those Cauliflower Pretzels BA ate that were helping him be pissed off, with BA grumbling the other day after practice that they held the first day back from Canton. lol
    GO BUCS!!!

  4. Medicated Pete Says:

    That was the funniest sports interview I’ve ever heard. Clyde doesn’t know how to say “cauliflower” and Pat finally said…..”what the hell are you saying…..” Haha now i gotta go listen again

  5. SB~LV Says:

    Just saying that underestimates complacency

  6. Hodad Says:

    Pete, take more pills, and jump.

  7. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Oh don’t you worry about Durable Donnie Pete.
    I used to but I’ve been assured by many experts on here that he is in fact a top tier talent and we’re lucky to have him.

    Don’t let silly things like him taking plays off while defending the GOAT’s blind side.
    Don’t be afraid that he’ll commit a costly penalty at the wrong time.
    And do t let the fact that he appears to be disinterested at his job.

    Remember…….. we’re just lucky to be paying him about 15 million a year for his All-Pro services.

    Only 4 LT’s were ranked worse than Donovan Smith last season at winning 1 on 1 blocks on passing plays (ESPN analytics) 2 were rookies & 1 is 34yrs old almost outta the league.

  9. AlabamaBucsFan Says:

    My worst fear is the NFL and the Gov’t shutting down the season.

    Can’t lose Vita, the defense went from good to elite when he came back.

    Dooosh: Did Donovan Smith steal your old lady? Are you Anthony Collins, and The Durable One took your job? There’s really no other explanation for someone to go on (and on, and on, and on) about an okay football player.

  12. Capt.Tim Says:

    No worries about complacency.
    Bucs are in a unique position. They all know that Tom Brady is on a short time schedule. Probably only another 10 years or so.
    They know they have to take advantage of havng him at QB, while they can!
    Our next QB, Aaron Rodgers, isnt a sure thing, like Brady.
    Grab those rings while you can!

  13. Perimeter Blocker Says:

    Please put bubble wrap around Brady. It seems like every interception I see in the highlights of training camp came from Gabbert.

  14. Buckaroo Boozie Says:

    Can’t wait for Banner Raise and Cannon fireworks 💥

  15. Joe in Michigan Says:

    What Bucs “fans” have said in the last year:

    Brady is washed up (Won another Super Bowl)
    Gronk is washed up (Won another Super Bowl)
    Vea is a 2-down player only (Won a Super Bowl)
    White should’ve never been taken at pick 5 (Won a Super Bowl)
    SMB should be cut immediately (Won a Super Bowl)
    Winfield Jr. is too short (Won a Super Bowl)
    Donovan Smith is TERRIBLE (Starting LT on a Super Bowl winning team)

    Tell me again why anybody should listen to you whine, after YOUR FAVORITE TEAM JUST WON A SUPER BOWL?

    i saw Donnie scarfing down Krispy Kremes the other day before practice! Dude was ripping into a box of a dozen !

  17. SOEbuc Says:

    Clyde is next up at OC.

  18. GMC hater Says:

    There’s no way DSmith slacks off this year. Not with brady as his qb and wirfs on the other side of the line. Complacency was an issue when Winston was qb but that is no longer a problem.

  19. Bossman2543 Says:

    Brady is here to win. With him, BA, JPP, Shaq, Evans there will be some serious ass kicking if they smell even a whiff of complacency.
