Is Bruce Arians Still In The Picture?

February 1st, 2023

“Jason, trust me on Blaine Gabbert.”

Now that the Bucs are “peering into the abyss,” will former Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians save them (again)?

With failed offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and several offensive staffers jettisoned shortly after an embarrassing playoff loss to the Cowboys, Joe wonders how involved Arians is? Most of those guys launched were long-time Arians associates and friends.

Recently, the Custodian of Canton, columnist Ira Kaufman, was in touch with Arians who was at his lakeside house in Georgia. To Joe, that doesn’t sound like he’s up to his elbows researching the draft (though with a state-of-the-art modem, he can watch a lot of film).

When Tom Brady first retired last winter, Arians told anyone who would listen he was gunning for NFC South rivals armed with Blaine Gabbert. Currently, Gabbert is scheduled to be a free agent.

Is Arians today beating the drum for Gabbert? Or will the team decide to see if Kyle Trask is worth banking the future on?

Joe suspects if Gabbert is re-signed, it means Arians still has a voice in Bucs affairs.

    Arians handed Bowles and Leftwich, what Vegas predicted, was the odds on favorite to win the NFC and go to the SB, and these two idiot coaches ended up being so bad they not only finished with a losing record, they forced Brady to retire. Arians doesn’t want anything to do with that part of the history book, so he’ll take his full retirement now. And good for him, he had a hell of a run.

  2. SB Says:

    If Arians were still here as HC the Bucs Might be waiting to play in a week and a half.
    LOLOL at all of the Arians haters that cheered when he stepped down.
    I said it then and I will say it now. “Be careful what you wish for”

  3. Rod Munch Says:

    I’m still p/o’d that the woke POS at Nike said they couldn’t make orange throwback uniforms because of the pandemic. The Bucs should also be p/o’d as that would have sold like a million Bucs jerseys. But the Bucs told Nike they sucked at their job, went back to the old Reebok uniforms, and thus Nike slow footed the rollout of the orange jerseys.

    But hey, I’m sure orange Trask jerseys will do just as well. LOL!

  4. zzbuc Says:

    @Rod Munch

    Sooner or later you’ll have to face that TB12 is as responsible as coaches for this lost year. Goes the same way on 2020, he was as responsible as coaches for the SB…..

  5. Joe in Michigan Says:

    THANK YOU Mr. Arians, for the Super Bowl year, if you read JBF comments.

  6. Goatfarmer Says:

    Arians probably has a voice, but his own protege’s don’t listen. Leftboob was a disaster without him. Bowels sends a nasty stream of ‘rrhea out on the field every week without him.

    Bruce needs to retire full time and let the stank of suck sink back in. It’s what the Yucs culture really is, after all.

  7. Rod Munch Says:

    One last time… let’s revisit the Bucs loses, and you tell me which of these games the Bucs are still losing if it was Arians coaching the team and not the two idiots Bowles and Leftwich.

    GB – W
    KC – L
    @PIT – W
    @CAR – W
    BAL – W
    @CLV – W
    SF – L
    CIN – W

    That leaves the team 14-2, with the last Atlanta game a toss-up since we don’t know who would be playing.

    OK, lets say you disagree with TWO of those, well the team is still 12-4, I’ll take it.

    That’s the difference between a good head coach like Arians, and a couple of losers like Bowles and Leftwich. If Arians was still coaching this team, he’d still be coaching it right now, as in prepping for the SB.

  8. Bubby Says:

    Bruce is gone. Tom is gone.

    So many on here expressed confidence in Jason Licht…. well, let’s see what ya got, Jason.

  9. Rod Munch Says:

    zzbuc – Brady is a robot, and as you learned in kindergarten, garbage in, garbage out. Brady has never had to deal with such God-awful coaching in his entire career. Also, Brady wasn’t the issue, the issue was the moron calling for a run up the middle on every 1st down and then a 1 yard screen pass on 2nd down. Brady wasn’t the one punting from the Cleveland 37-yard line with the game on the line. Brady wasn’t the one who didn’t have the defense ready to go in a playoff game.

  10. Old black man Says:

    Tom is the GOAT but the GOAT “got old and tired”. He’s telling y’all that it wasn’t all on Byron or the HC. He’s saying I’m no longer a superhero, I’m just a citizen. Lesson from pops! You’re welcome.

  11. Redeemer Says:

    Hopefully not. We have BA in part to thank for this mess. Question, do you think BA cared more for the success of the organization, or setting up his buddies? I think the latter. What a better way to make yourself look more important then to have people say, oh if BA were coaching it would’ve been better. Brady wanted out of here last off-season. His fake retirement was nothing more than a power play to get out. In retrospect, that’s exactly what they should’ve done. IDC about reports to the contrary. He wanted Miami and not as a part owner. We’d have picks and be much better positioned.

  12. zzbucs Says:


    Since BA was gone the Bucs change dramatically the way they played, and everybody knows TB12 was the main reason why…..

    Don’t get me wrong, I agree with BL being fired, but BL was the OC on the 20 and 21 season when the Bucs were one of the best if not the best offense on the league.

    Don’t tell me that TB12 was not part of the change , because everybody knows that, even you.

  13. Marine Buc Says:

    @ Rod

    If the Bucs just had a competent OC last year and we averaged just 24 PPG we also win all of the games you listed…

    Todd Bowles’ defense was not the problem with this team last season.

    We only allowed 21 PPG in 2022.

  14. Dooley Says:

    JBF commenter logic:

    Laud Brady for the success of the Bucs the last 3 seasons, but blame everybody else including the HC that came in the year prior to Bradys’ arrival and made Tampa an attractive location for Brady to begin with, holy crap fans really are fickle.

  15. Rod Munch Says:

    zzbucs – Your premise is wrong. Leftwich was not the real OC, he was told what to do by Arians. Arians himself in 2019 said he had to constantly stay on top of Leftwich during games, telling him to open things up, because Leftwich, by nature, is ultra conservative.

    No, the offensive failures in 2022 were on one idiot, that being Byron Leftwich. In 2018 Leftwich was the OC in Arizona, the only other time he was an OC without Arians telling him what to do, and that offense was, by far, the worst in the NFL. Then, in 2022 we once again see Leftwich without Arians telling him what to do, and we know the results.

    There was a reason Bowles was eager to dump this ultra predictable loser Leftwich, it’s because he’s awful at his job. Remember the Rams game, for example, when Brady came out after the game and said he called the game winning play – that was Brady being PC and saying Leftwich was an idiot who couldn’t call a good call if his life depended on it. When literally 90% of the dummies in the comment section on this site, on Sunday, during the games, can call out what the next play is going to be before they run it, you got a serious problem. And that was Leftwich.

  16. Dooley Says:

    Imagine saying our season would’ve turned out different solely based on BA being HC still, and totally ignoring the personnel and performance issues that hampered the ON FIELD product on a week to week basis LOL

  17. Rod Munch Says:

    Marine Buc – yeah, it’s remarkable what a difference that makes, although if Arians was still there, it also means Bowles has more time coaching his defense, which means they’re also improved.

    Also there is the whole leadership and motivation thing. in 2021, when the Bucs were up like 24-7 at half-time vs the Falcons, on TV they talked to Arians going off the field and Arians was cursing a storm because he was saying the Bucs should have 35 points, and he was mad they weren’t destroying him. Meanwhile if these losers Bowles and Leftwich scored 24 points in a game they were throwing a party. It’s just a loser mindset that is happy with barely getting by. Arians was very different. Gruden, who I don’t even like, was very different. Even mild mannered Dungy, he wasn’t telling defensive players to take a knee after a turnover, he was telling them to score. Bowles, meanwhile, is the guy who tells your corners to go out of bounds on an INT as to not risk fumbling the ball. It’s just a loser mentality.

  18. SB~LV Says:

    I hope not, he is a football coach and he no longer coaches and he left a Giant turd in the RayJay and one still needs to be flushed

  19. zzbucs Says:


    I can’t go 15 rounds with this…..

    Just disagree with your view…… I think BL last season was beyond awful, but he was not the only responsible, Bowles and TB12 can not be ignored…Of course there were injuries, poor drafting and not very good FA additions etc…..

  20. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Things changed game #2 vs Saints when BA wasn’t allowed on the sidelines anymore.

  21. HC Grover Says:

    ROFL I knew it. Gabbrt, Bowlz, what a disaster.

  22. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Looking for Arians’ influence…..Looking for Brady’s influence?… already have it with the Trask draft pick…..that along with Licht, Leftwich, Christensen & Moore.
    Were they all wrong?…….

    I’m still p/o’d that the woke POS at Nike said they couldn’t make orange throwback uniforms because of the pandemic.

    Where do you pull this “woke” business from. And, by the way, the issue was supply chain issues, which is a real thing that has affected the world economy.

    If that has you p!ssed, you might wanna call a therap!st or get some ph0uecking xanax.

  24. Rod Munch Says:

    zzbucs – I can go 15 rounds, 25 rounds, 99 rounds, doesn’t matter. Bowles had nothing to do with the offense, nothing. Other credible sites say he even went to Leftwich during the season and was telling him to open things up, to try new concepts, and Leftwich rebutted him, changed nothing, did nothing.

    Bowles was handed the team on March 30th, 2022, he had no say in coaches, and even said (basically) the offense was on autopilot, they were just supposed to keep doing what they were doing. It was 100% on Leftwich changing that up.

    As for Brady, he’s a robot, he’s no Payton Manning. Brady does what he’s told. But garbage in > garbage out. For Brady to rebel against coaching is just not what he was programmed to do. That doesn’t make Brady an issue, it just shows what garbage coaching he was dealing with.

    BTW, none of this lets Bowles off for his own loser mentality, where he’s punting from the other teams 37 with the game on the line, wanting to run out the clock and play for OT etc. But the lethal loser combo of Leftwich and Bowles, well, not even the GOAT could overcome that.

  25. Rod Munch Says:

    sasquatch – If you don’t think NIKE is woke, then you’re truly clueless.

    As for the supply chain – you do know YOU can buy an orange replica jersey already, right? That other teams all had throwback jerseys.

    How clueless do you have to be to actually think NIKE can’t whip their Chinese slave labor to spit out some new jerseys.

    You have to be a world class idiot to not know any of the above.

    * Vegas predictions mean nothing.

    * There were other factors to the losing year besides poor coaching, although Lefywich is obviously horrible, and Bowles had some questionable in-game decision problems.

    * Brady was off his game, and that wasn’t all on Leftwich.

    * Brady wasn’t forced to retire because of anything other than it was just time. You can’t blame a guy for wanting to get on with his life and face reality.

  27. sasquatch Says:

    Take a xanax man. It might help.

  28. ViSyl Says:

    Please, if we will bet in anyone, go with Trask. We already know and are sure that Gabbert sucks. Trask there is still doubt at least…

  29. sasquatch Says:

    I don’t know what you think woke is, but Florida people apparently think they can label anything woke because they don’t like it. #FloridaMan

  30. SB~LV Says:

    Vegas only needs to be right 51% of the time
    Bucs can barely do that
    Say Joez .. what is the Buccaneer lifetime W-L %
    Better than 51% ?

  31. NEfan Says:

    zzbuc, in 2021 Brady threw for over 5000yds led the league in passing yards & td’s. Should have been MVP. Came one play from a back to back SB. So why again would he want to change the offense again??? Your BS doesn’t hold water.

  32. Tom S. Says:

    The coaching was abysmal but don’t forget Brady taking off multiple weeks of the preseason and taking an extra day off each week. Even the GOAT can’t part-time it and expect to be playing at an MVP level. Brady missed a number of throws he would have hit the year earlier and in the end Father Time remains undefeated.

    I do love the clowns on here who probably get upset every time and athlete or celebrity says anything political but simultaneously inject politics into their sports posting. Self awareness is a skill for some but not others apparently.

  33. Rod Munch Says:

    sasquatch Says:
    * Vegas predictions mean nothing.


    On the field they don’t mean anything, but they do set expectations, based on things like the roster strength, etc. What is says is that the Bucs had a SB-caliber team.

    As for Brady, he had a few more missed throws than usual, but to think he was the reason they had a dramatic drop in production is pure nonsense. You could watch the games, watch the calls, and clearly pinpoint who the issue was when you saw the same plays, over and over and over again in the same order.

    As the Ravens said after that game, the Bucs offense was just calling the same plays over and over again from a different formation.

    That tells you everything when even the other team, during the game, notices that.

  34. 1BUC76 Says:

    I wish he was involved still, but that ship has sailed and docked.

    Bruce thought enough of Todd to hand him the keys, after finding no one that wants the OC job, could Bruce do us all one more solid and help out for a year until it’s time to clean house for real?

  35. sasquatch Says:


    No arguments from me about how awful Leftwich was.

  36. NEfan Says:

    Riddle me this Batman, if this wasn’t on Bowels, why were the majority of fans on this site calling for BA to come back when the wheels were coming off?

    Sasquash, woke or not, Nike caters to the demo where they can make the most $$$, they do not care if they are politically correct or not, unless they have to take a side to increase revenue.

  37. sasquatch Says:

    1BUC76 Says:
    February 1st, 2023 at 2:40 pm

    after finding no one that wants the OC job

    I’m pretty sure there are people who want the job. We only missed out on O’Brien because he wanted to go back to New England. Who can blame him? Kellen Moore wanted to go to San Diego to work with Herbert. Who can blame him?

    We’ve interviewed some good people. It’s just the usual reflexive negativity to say no one wants the job.

  38. NEfan Says:

    Tom, have you read any of Joe’s posts? Brady took 11 days off which in turn was actually 4 practice days. Multiple players had veteran days off during the week, that doesn’t mean they were home they were in rehab or film sessions. Why isn’t anyone bi@#hing about Bowels the HC taking his personal day off? It is very clear Bowels and Brady didn’t care for each other which probably split the locker room. You’ll all get to see what kind of leader Toilet Bowl is in 2023. Good Luck Bucs!!!

  39. Jeff Says:

    Bruce is done. Send him home to his lake house and booze.

  40. NEfan Says:

    BA killed the Bucs!! The killer B’s. BA, Blows and BL.

  41. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    To the degree that Arians has a voice in the current situation it is because he functions as a “vision master” and not “the shot caller”. Jason Licht remains the General Manager and Todd Bowles is the Head Coach. (As of February first, anyway.) Of course the Glazers have the ultimate say in franchise affairs. Du uh!

  42. Marine Buc Says:

    @ Rod

    I agree. Todd Bowles is a more laid back and conservative Head Coach.

    There are plenty of other successful head coaches with the same approach. If he figures out how to win games then I don’t care what the coaches “style” is as long as it works.

    There were times this season that (for some reason) the Bucs seemed to be playing without any energy, passion, fire (call it whatever you want)…

    I still believe Bowles is a successful DC and I am willing to see how next year goes.

    But I will keep my expectations pretty low. lol.

  43. Oneilbuc Says:

    NEfakefan. Go back to your team your master is gone!! I guess the Patriots fans don’t want you back !! And that’s for all of you who said I’m only here because of Brady your comments don’t matter right now to us real bucs fans!!

  44. PewterStiffArm Says:

    To be honest when I first saw the caption of this article I thought Coach Arians was going to come back and call plays if the Bucs couldn’t find a suitable OC. After all if Bowles doesn’t have a good season it would be his last, a lame duck sort of speak, never mind.

  45. NEfan Says:

    So oneilsuckyall, if I used the word master to address you would that be politically correct?? I was more.if a fan than you, at least I pulled for the Bucs QB and wanted him to win. Who is the FAKE woke fan???

  46. NEfan Says:

    Marine bic@ a successful DC doesn’t let up 60+ points in the team last two PO games. The guy is a loser as a HC period…

  47. Mike C Says:

    NeFan are you ok?

  48. 80forBrady Says:

    I would like to hear the Joes opinion on what to do about QB and their top 2 OC candidates.

  49. zzbuc Says:


    What are you talking about???
    BA was the coach on 2021 remember? No risk it no biscuit!!!!

    TB12 didn’t want to throw the ball that many times, so BA was gone and the Bucs with Bowles BL and TB 12 decides to change the way they played.

    My point is …BL is not the only responsible for this last year… Got it?????

  50. Hodad Says:

    Best thing about the next couple of years will be a lot of 1 pm Sunday games. To many prime time night games for this old man to stay up for this year. Needless to say we won’t be opening the season on Monday, or Thursday night this year. I’m O.K. with a rebuild if done right. However I think the chances of this organization getting it right is next to zero. I’ll be along for the ride regardless. Will be an interesting offseason to say the least.

  51. stpetebucfan Says:

    Dooley FTW! “holy crap fans really are fickle.”

    They also exhibit the patience of a 3 year old.

    Hell let’s go all out in describing us..LOL

  52. Bucsalltheway Says:

    Gabbert no way! You’ll hate me for this but I rather get jameis back on the cheap is we gonna go down we gotta go all in lol

  53. NEfan Says:

    Zzbuc??? He set the record for most passes and completions. What changed again? Blows didn’t want the high flying O, his D got too tired. Did you skip that post???

  54. Bucs56 Says:

    In 3 years this team went on an epic playoff run. But the 2020 regular season had some problems on both sides of the ball and why they had to go on the road. 2021 had a better regular season, but ended with disorganization on BA and the defensive coaching staff. Also filled with rumors BA wasn’t working too hard. TB did not like his professionalism in 2021.
    BA didn’t decide to retire he was removed last year. They couldn’t clean the staff out with a new coach so they had to hire from within. The oline health and stubborn uncreative offensive playcalling did them in this year.

  55. NEfan Says:

    Zzbuc@ did the bucs in 2020, 21 constantly have to play in a 2nd 11, 10, 9, 13 and 3rd & long? Why, uou can’t run for 2 yds. That’s why a Qab has to throw 66 times in one game. Frankly it became sad and difficult to watch.

  56. TampabayDJ82 Says:

    If Brady hated the coaches so bad then why did he come back this year ? Injury bug did our Bucs in just as much as the coaches. People seem to have short term memory loss on that situation. Go Bucs

  57. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    I hear what you are saying, Hodad.

    A true rebuild (i.e. a complete overhaul) would start with the canning of Jason Licht by the Glazers. We are in rebuild mode now I think. Here are my main features for reloads from my point of view.

    Plan A: Find an adequate QB for 2023 and build enough through free agency and the draft to make a credible postseason run this year.

    Plan B: Go with Trask and whoever else we can find on the cheap for 2023. Go “all in” on team development without tanking in a manner that sets us up with a decent first round QB draft opportunity in 2024.

  58. D-Rome Says:

    One last time: Let’s revisit the Bucs loses, and you tell me which of these games the Bucs are still losing if it was Arians coaching the team and not the two idiots Bowles and Leftwich.

    I agree with you Rod Munch. While I will always be grateful for Arians and consider him to be the greatest Bucs coach of all time it’s clear his presence was missed on the sideline while he was taking a paid Glazer vacation. This team doesn’t have a losing record under Arians if he was on the sidelines this year. Record would have been 12-5 at minimum.

    As for Bowles if you can’t win with Brady, Evans, Godwin, Gage, and Julio on the offensive side of the football then who can you win with?

  59. mark2001 Says:

    D Rome. As some homer FSU fans would say, Bowles can win with Jameis. ROTFL.

    quite frankly:

    i don’t even think brady is done…

    he’s just letting the bucs move forward, instead of jamming them up, as they of course left the light on for one tommy b…

    now the bucs can move forward, fill up there qb roster spots…lock them in for at least a year…and take baby steps forward…

    meanwhile tom might just lay in the weeds for san fran to look to sign a 3rd qb down the line, when trey lance doesn’t look good in ota’s, and purdy is making a slow recovery…

    and boom in rolls tommy b…by the bay, just the wrong bay…

    I brought up this supposition earlier today in another thread. What IF Brady “retired” just so he could circumvent the FA period starting in March?

    I asked earlier, IF you retire as a free agent, does that mean you can unretire and sign with another team before March 15?

    Wild speculation, I admit – but is it even possible? Although I think Brady can still play, I’d say he’s mentally tired of 23 years of trying to be the best, and I’ll take it from the GOAT’s mouth concerning his playing intentions.

    Still, that’d be frickin’ WILD if he unretired to play for another team. It’s 28-3 and 27-3 deja vu all over again if it happens, LOL.

  65. orlbucfan Says:

    Yeah, the Dark Ages have returned plus all the other.negative BS I’m reading on here. At least, a few genuine old timer Buc fans like me are slowly checking in. You aholes have no idea what it was like to be a Buc fan back in the 1980s. That includes the owners of this site. No, this is nothing like those days. So, get real!

  66. adam from ny Says:

    @ D-Rok:

    yeah but if we get a half way decent qb in here, and start moving forward without tom…

    and we have something to be excited about with the team, per say…

    then the goat comes back after we’ve all but forgotten about him in our equation, a lot of bucs fans just might sort of be happy, because if i’m correct, we are getting hit with a cap hit of something like 35 mil because of his retirement, but if he goes to another team we get hit with something like half of that…

    i don’t know the exact numbers off hand…

    but say we save 15 mil off his cap hit if he plays elsewhere, and add in the cap being raised 16 mil and change this year…we can sign a couple of big time players for approx 32 mil in cap space…

    just a thought…

    #HeckImNoGreenberg #BetterToCheckWithHim

  67. The Anomaly Says:

    No more Arians…he did good and bad…

    No more

    Can we please start over…including Jason “Draft Miss” Licht

  68. D-Rok Says:

    Yep, adam, glad to see you thinking outside the box. Hypothetically, IF Brady were to sign with another team, it seems plausible only half of that 35mill would be counted against our cap. Cap topics and strategy are the least of my strengths to be honest, so maybe someone can dig up some info in this arena?

    I mean, I know what bad run-blocking looks like, but not so sure about cap hits. Bueller? LOL

  69. BucU Says:

    I’m not sure why there’s such bickering in here.
    The consensus is..
    A: Todd Bowles did a miserable job as HC last season. About 90 + percent agree.
    B: Byron Leftwich looked completely clueless without BA’ supervision. Dude is totally incapable of scheming a gameplan to a specific opponent. Same plays. NEVER EVER an adjustment. Exposed as a total failure. I’d say another 90+ percent are on board with that as well.
    C: Tom Bradys performance this year was poor. I think it was from injuries to the line, Leftwich’s abysmal play calling, Tom’s off the field issues and injuries he didn’t disclose, and virtually no energy or enthusiasm almost every game from the whole team. (See A)
    I’d say about 80+ percent agree with that.
    So we all agree on most everything we saw from the Bucs this past season.

  72. TF Says:

    I’m obviously nervous about the direction of the team. I don’t see Licht tearing down the team completely but we kinda need to. Bowles is not the answer and I’m perfectly fine with keeping him this year and next if we absolutely have to. Do we trade Godwin? I’m thinking yes. What is his value with no QB to maximize his skill set? Let’s do an Eagles thing and rebuild in 3-4 years. Hate to say it but that was textbook and brilliant front office work.

  73. The Anomaly Says:

    Bowels is still head coach

    the roster will be culled

    Evans would be traded not Godwin

    Although not unexpected, this is a bitter day.

    Adam from NY, I don’t think so. I agree, he didn’t have to quit, but he also needed the ideal situation and full team support. I don’t see any option like that out there. Now if Brady unretires yet again, he would damage his image beyond salvation acting that way. And I think he finally feels it. Thanks to the crap he suffered under Bowles. That would wear anyone down and drive them out. No, I think this is it for him. SF is going to go with Trey Lance, even though he’s trash, and pray that Purdy miraculously heals in 6 months.

  76. Capt.Tim Says:

    While I agree that this year will be horrible, we still have players worth watching.
    And now, thanks to disgruntled season ticket holders, The average Joe will be able to watch them at an affordable price.

    “Yeah, the Dark Ages have returned plus all the other.negative BS I’m reading on here. At least, a few genuine old timer Buc fans like me are slowly checking in. You aholes have no idea what it was like to be a Buc fan back in the 1980s. That includes the owners of this site. No, this is nothing like those days. So, get real!”

    Yep! I still remember in 1979, telling my Chicago Bear fan brother “The Bucs will be the team of the 80’s!”…. now, in fairness they were, albeit the worst team! LOL!

  79. TBfan Says:

    The sad truth is unless they sign Rodgers we are trash for years. Rodgers is a long way from a quality person lol…but you tell me another QB that can win 10 games with this boat anchor Bowles

  80. LakelandSteve Says:

    All you Brady haters are fixing to see just what he meant to this team.

  81. LoveMeSomeBucs Says:

    Arians needs to be gone from the team…he dirty dogged the Bucs and sabot last season by handing the team over to Bowles and that inept bunch

  82. Jackson Says:

    I would much rather see Gabbert than Trask. Gabbert’s not great but at least he’s mobile and has a big arm. Trask isn’t mobile and has a noodle arm.
