Bruce Arians gives an insight into his ‘no-nonsense’ style of coaching

While speaking to the press after Saturday’s win, Bruce Arians gave an insight into his relationship with 43-year old Tom Brady and the rest of his Buccaneers players.

He replied, “Well, yeah, I think for me, being an interim head coach for 12 games, there are two things I’ve learned – be yourself and delegate and I don’t think you can find a player in Arizona, hopefully, that’ll ever say I ‘bullshit em’. There’s not going to be a player here.”

“Sometimes they don’t like the truth but I’m going to give you the truth and you know, it’ll hurt for a minute but it’s real. So don’t come asking me a question and expect me to sugarcoat it because you’re going to get a real answer and I think our guys appreciate that,” Arians said while talking to the press.

The Bucs go up against NFC South opponents Atlanta Falcons in Week 17. Coach Arians will expectedly rest some of his key players for this clash. TB12 is hungry for another Super Bowl win. With players such as Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, Mike Evans and Chris Godwin at his disposal, Brady could definitely add to his Super Bowl tally.
