Having won their Super Bowl LV, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers secured their second-ever Lombardi Trophy last season. The franchise, which last won the coveted prize back in 2003, rejoiced after a barren run of over a decade.

Now, with ambitions to run it back, the franchise will surely have a tough task ahead in 2021. As we’ve seen, winning a Super Bowl is one thing, but defending the crown is a whole different ball-game altogether.

The last team to achieve the feat were the New England Patriots back in 2005 when they won Super Bowl XXXVIII and successfully defended their title by winning Super Bowl XXXIX.

The Buccaneers tried to run it back in 2003 as well. Much like the side of today, the franchise decided to retain most of its starting players to stick to the winning formula. 

This though didn’t quite work out as the franchise not only failed to make the Super Bowl but Playoffs altogether. Current Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coach Bruce Arians is well aware of this. 

And he believes he knows what to do to make sure the same fate doesn’t affect his team.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers set for grueling camp  

The Buccaneers have managed to retain all their starters from Super Bowl LV. It’s clear the franchise wishes to stick with the players that brought them success. 

But while doing that, the team must also ensure there is no scope of complacency. For this Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coach Bruce Arians is ready to make sure his players are up to speed before the new season starts.

“When our guys come back, and that’s my job, I’m going to beat the sh*t out of them,” Arians said during a segment of The Loose Cannons podcast.

“We’re going back to basics, and we’re going to have one hell of a training camp and know what our foundation is,” he further added.
