The long-running dance of awkwardness continues between Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians and Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.
The Bucs have won seven games and lost four. When they lose, Arians doesn’t bother to blame Brady if necessary. On Tuesday night, the Arians painted with a wider brush.
“[O]ffensive, it’s a question every week whether the quarterback will play well or not, “Arians said on his weekly radio show on JoeBucsFan.com. “And our job is to make sure he feels comfortable and let him play well.”
In the same show, Arians said blocking the passage against the Aries was “really, really good.” Arians also reiterated that Brady’s interception, which sealed the defeat in the late fourth quarter, “was just a bad decision” that Brady “didn’t read the reflection correctly and throw a bad ball “.
Although at times Arians has made it clear that Brady still needs time and continuity to feel completely comfortable with the crime, this sense does not become apparent in healthy bites that come out as blaming Brady. At a time when the main goal of the Buccaneers for the rest of this year is thought to be to ensure that Brady returns for another one (one in which we hope all tickets will be available for sale), Arians either haven’t received a note – or he’s not completely on board with the idea.
