Bruce Arians Dives Deeper Into Red Zone Fails

October 6th, 2021

Sunday marked the first time this season the Bucs looked mortal in the red zone.

So what went wrong?

“I think it was mostly execution of who was out there and we didn’t make a couple of throws,” Bucco Bruce Arians said on WDAE radio last night. “But really our spacing wasn’t very good, either. We weren’t winning 1 on- 1s.” And our whole gameplan is to win 1-on-1s, and the Patriots beat us.”

If the Bucs weren’t 3-1, Arians pointing at Tom Brady missing a couple of throws would have the national screamers howling about chaos and division like they did last season.

Joe found it interesting to hear Arians mention the gameplan of winning 1-on-1 in the red zone. That makes a ton on of sense. No team should be able to cover the Bucs’ arsenal of weapons without a guy being open.

The Patriots, however, pulled that off. Joe expects that to be a rarity all season long, even if Rob Gronkowski misses many weeks.

    They played good against our offense. I’m sure that will be corrected. That was a chess match and we won.
    Go Bucs

    All I know if Gilmore was released by the Pats. Thats all.

    One endzone target went to a tight end just brought up from the practice squad. How about explaining that one.

    The weather completely changed that game. Anyone who says otherwise is lying….says Pete

  5. Posey99 Says:

    We were successfully running the ball, then switched to throwing in the redzone…sigh

  6. Lets Roll Says:

    It was past Brady’s bed time. He was literally sleep walking out there and STILL won.

    Cause that just what GOATS do.

  7. Jmarkbuc Says:

    The weather, and TB12 was obviously being overly cautious. He did not want to be picked at Foxborough.

    Sometimes you just get beat…..there isn’t any mystery about it……we had only one catch by a TE all game, I believe.
