Bruce Arians on Tom Brady’s performance on Sunday: ‘It’s like unusual’


What did Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians think about Tom Brady’s debut on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints?

He thought it was an unusual performance by his legendary quarterback.

“He looked like Tom Brady in practice all the time, so it’s unusual to see that he didn’t do it in the ballgame because they didn’t do the things we weren’t prepared for,” Arion said. “Whatever they did, we felt we were ready for it,” said Arian. He said, “Some wide receivers will have to do a better job of winning one after the other to go their own way. He put us in the right run check twice. It was a learning experience.

He said, “We can’t say that we were out of sync because we started going out of the ground because you could go down the field.” “” So, we don’t get any more part plays than pass interference penalties. I think it’s a great learning experience. It’s just one round of a 16-round fight and we’ll learn from it. ”

Brady, who was 23–36 239 yards, two touchdowns and two costly interceptions threw to the Bucs’ 34-23 loss. He was Marcus Williams intercepted in the first second quarter and then again in the third quarter by Janoris Jenkins, who returned it from 36 yards out to give the Saints a 24-7 lead.

After reviewing the film on Monday, Arion admitted that Brady’s first interception was a costly mistake by wide receiver Mike Evans, not Brady’s.

“No doubt,” he said. “It wasn’t Cover 2, it was quarter coverage and Mike should split up, go down the middle and never stop.”

Brady was critical of himself for throwing out two contradictions, calling them “bad throws” – to say it clearly.

“It doesn’t matter how much talent you have. If you throw interceptions returned for a touchdown, I’ve fixed it,” he said.

Arian had critics as well as criticism for Brady’s overall performance on Sunday.

“It speaks for itself. If you’re throwing an outside route and you throw it low and in – it doesn’t until that time, Arian said. “He was a little late on that. And perhaps a better decision to go elsewhere with the ball. ”

He also had words for Brady’s sulky-demeanor after the loss:

“He was the first – he knows how to bounce back,” said Arian. “He knew he didn’t play very well and that’s not what he expected of himself, nor what we expected. I’d expect him to be a little more grit [and] A little more determination this week. ”
