Bruce Arians deamnds excellence and he did not get that on Friday.
After Friday’s practice session, The Tampa Bay Bucs head coach unloaded on the team while speaking to the media.
“I’m really not pleased; I thought we were really, really sluggish,” Arians said, via the Tampa Bay Times. “We talked about it before we left [Wednesday] and took the day off [Thursday]. I don’t know if our receivers caught a pass. Same thing defensively, we didn’t stop anything over third-and-9.”
He also referred to Friday’s session as a “horses**t practice.”
As you saw at the beginning of the video, QB Tom Brady wasn’t too thrilled with the practice either.
“Communication, execution, missing throws, missing reads,” Brady said. “Overall just a poor day.”
“We gotta watch the film and correct it. I think that the important part is… we realize we’re starting at the bottom with everybody else,” Brady said. “We gotta climb our way up. We’re gonna have our challenges, it’s gonna be an entirely different challenge this season than last year.”
And while Tampa Bay is still fresh off their Super Bowl LV win, Brady made clear on Friday that last season is behind them.
“There’s nothing about last year – that’s in the past,” he said. “We have a new experience this year. We’ve gotta be able to create our own future and that’s really about attitude, effort, preparation. Nothing about last year is gonna carry over into this year. Maybe some communication stuff might help but it’s an entirely new challenge.”
