Arians Talks Weekend Plan, 2022 Plan

September 8th, 2021

Bucs fans paying attention know where Bucco Bruce Arians has an obsessive focus.

That’s on the virus.

Arians is convinced the Bucs beat the crap out of The Sickness last season and it was a key component of what got them a ring. Joe’s not so sure, but hey, it’s a unifying force and focus for the team, so it’s all good.

Arians said on SiriusXM NFL Radio tonight that he was very scared the Bucs would come back from a recent four-day break with cases of the virus. It all worked out, but Arians acknowledged that it will be another challenge after he gives players three days off following tomorrow night’s season opener.

“We gotta do it again!” Arians barked.

Joe hates praising any team for having few COVID cases because there’s a lot of luck involved. So you won’t hear Joe bash the Bucs if they have an outbreak.

Arians added that he likes all the work and bonding his team got this summer, even with some of the continued virus restrictions in place.

Those two practices with the Titans, look for the Bucs to double up in 2022. “I probably next year would like to work with two teams,” Arians said.

Joe found that a little noteworthy, considering some folks think Arians would retire after this season if he won another Super Bowl.

    So the Bucs are all in on trying to minimize exposure to the virus, doesn’t sound like dooshSantis would approve of their workplace policies. 100% vaccinated ? My gosh the Chinese along with Soros and Gates are going to profile their genomes !!!! They will be breeding Tom Brady clones in China with DNA collected from his nostrils !!!

    The WHO said yesterday this is never going away yesterday…

    “I think this virus is here to stay with us and it will evolve like influenza pandemic viruses, it will evolve to become one of the other viruses that affects us,” Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of the World Health Organization’s Health Emergencies Program, said at a press briefing.

    Just read your history books, these outbreaks are common, and if they hit worldwide distribution, they don’t go away. They might ‘merge’ or overtake other viruses, but they don’t disappear.

    So move on with your life already. Get the vax, if you want, if you don’t want, then don’t — I don’t care either way. The vax does work, which is why it doesn’t bother me what you do. If you’re still scared at this point, lock yourself indoors and never come out. In any case, mind your own business and leave everyone else alone, no matter your opinion.

    Joe did u see the player who is the president of the nflpa today come out and say he is mad at the nfl for changing their covid protocol? The protocol of testing players everyday like last year? This year the nfl started testing vax and unvax players every 14 days then went down to every 7 days. The president of the nflpa said he and the players want testing everyday because thats why they kept covid cases at bay last year. Think about it, the bucs have had at least 15 covid cases between coaches and players since mandatory minicamp and training camp started. The bucs had maybe 5 all last year. It would suck barrett test positive for covid on a thursday and jpp, tryon, and vita cant play on that sunday because they are in that contact tracing protocol

    Rod is right… the first guy to comment, however, is a complete idiot. Did everyone else see that the CDC changed their indoor mask guidelines after receiving pressure from the National Education Association? Following the science… there’s no science there, just buckling under pressure from one of the country’s absolute dumbest unions, the teacher’s union. Most teachers are bonafide idiots. It used to be one of the major things teachers taught was Critical Thinking but since No Child Left Behind infected the public schools it has been nothing but teaching to a standardized test since then and critical thinking is an afterthought.

    First of all, my sis is a high school teacher up in dimwit county aka Bay County. She is fully vaccinated, bought her own air purifier and wears a mask when she can. So, any yahoos on here start dissing the teachers who are telling DeSantis the ahole where to stick it can kindly screw off! The Bucs were one of the FEW teams last season who had no games cancelled nor changed cos they followed a strict CV protocol. The team got behind it as did the staff. I expect BA to do it again this season. This state is now considered a joke right up there with Texas. Man, am I sick of that sh1t!

    This state is now considered a joke right up there with Texas.

    So THAT’S why Texas and Florida are booming in a pandemic! So many businesses and people are moving to those states because they’re jokes!

    Sure hope people keep laughing. Good for businesses in both joke states.

    Just get the backups ready asf because at some point we will need them due to either covid or injury. But if Brady gets injured, which we all know he wont because he is a magical goat, we all know we are f***ed
