Veteran NFL quarterback Tom Brady has enjoyed a mixed start to his tenure in Florida with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The six-time Super Bowl winner has led the Bucs to a 10-5 record heading into Week 17. Coach Bruce Arians led his team to a convincing 7-47 win over NFC North big boys Detroit Lions on the weekend.
By beating the Lions, the Buccaneers sealed a spot in this season’s playoffs. Let’s see what coach Arians had to say about his relationship with superstar quarterback Tom Brady.
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.
