  • It's kind of weak on the part of Bruce Areas to be calling him out like that.

  • You shouldn't be naming any names.

  • To be quite honest, you, particularly when you're offensive game plan, was absolutely, positively horrendous.

  • A matter of fact.

  • The entire coaching staff, which Bruce Areas is responsible for because he is the head coach was awful.

  • Your offensive play calling your game plan overall was awful.

  • Your defensive game plan and its performance was awful on both sides of the ball.

  • Byron Leftwich, Todd Bowles love both of them.

  • Absolutely awful day at work Sunday night.

  • Bruce Erin's is responsible for that.

  • And so when you are willing toe talk about how Mike Evans was open, your clearly pointing the finger at Tom Brady and highlighting how he missed this, he missed that.

  • Now I like it on Lee from the standpoint that in terms of Brady, Brady is going to respond for that and be even better for it.

  • But what I'm sensing is a guy in Bruce Areas this quick to pass the buck.

  • That's not the reputation that I think he's ever had, but in since Tom Brady has arrived, it seems like that has been the case, and I think that this is something that needs to be probed a bit.

  • MAWR.

  • It needs to be investigated because he's been pointing the finger from Day one.

  • Hey pointed the finger at in week one.

  • A nice pointing the finger at him again, both losses to the New Orleans Saints.

  • And I'm kind of wondering why that is.

  • I'm also wondering how Bruce Areas may feel about the fact that AH, player that he did not want on the squad, which was named Antonio Brown is now on the squad.

  • Who knows whether or not the same relationship that Tom Brady had with Mr Robert Kraft and how it was able to usurp the authority off Bill Belichick.

  • As Max pointed out, who obviously wanted to keep Jimmy Garoppolo?

  • I'm wondering if Tom Brady, because he has that same kind of cachet in Tampa, how whether or not that's something that could potentially be rubbing Bruce Areas the wrong way.

  • I have no idea I don't cover the team.

  • I think that we could defer to the beat writers covering the team every day to enlighten us as to exactly what's going on But, I mean, just connect the dots with what we know about sports.

  • If you are a coach that feels that your authority eyes being usurped in any way, Um or least that's the reputation that Tom Brady had with Bill Belichick over the Jimmy Garoppolo situation.

  • That kind of stuff trickles on down, or at least across the other colleagues of Bill Belichick.

  • And who knows?

  • That might be what we're sensing from Bruce Arians.

  • Now.

  • It's something worth considering because I don't like the fact that he spoke about things in such a specific fashion because he did not need to do that.

  • It is good for Tom Brady.

  • I think what Bruce Arians said, and that's 1 80 from the beginning of the season.

  • I felt at least a far as I perceived it.

  • I was shocked the way Arians when it Brady after that first loss, and Brady was no good and Arians was blunt about it, and I thought, Damn, that's That's a rude welcome.

  • Um, but the team did respond, Molly, As you mentioned off the top, they got better and better, and so did Brady.

  • And so you can't really argue the efficacy of Aryan, simply telling the truth at the postgame pressers.

  • But it's more than just He's hard on Brady.

  • And so, if you can rip your superstar the way Belichick could with Tom Brady or Popovich could with Tim Duncan than everyone has to get in line.

  • It's more than simply that kind of tough stuff that that we all point to in these kind of situations, because recall when Brady clearly didn't know it down, it was at the end off the Bears game, which they lost after publicly ripping his line areas covered for him.

  • It was pretty obviously lying about it.

  • And then Brady never really had to respond, and he never really took Hey like, avoided the question.

  • He did not answer the question directly at at the post game presser, right?

  • Brady didn't say, Yeah, I forgot that he, like he talked about something else, was that to cover for Arians because Aaron's had already covered for Brady.

  • Whatever it was, that worked, too, because the next week that came out no mental errors.

  • So it's so far to me what Arians has shown in terms of his handling of Tom Brady, and that's actually a difficult thing.

  • The goat shows up on your team.

  • He's entering his mid forties soon, like me out of his early forties.

  • Soon it was mid forties.

  • You are loaded both sides of the ball.

  • You are expected to do great things the over and under.

  • Everyone says you have to have at least double digit wins.

  • But it is hard.

  • There's Cove it you can't practice.

  • People can't get to know each other the same way.

  • Which is important, especially on an offensive line.

  • They drafted an offensive lineman in the first round, reached not reach for him but, like made a move to get him in all that stuff.

  • And that takes time.

  • So the circumstances or difficulty for a head coach who, in spite of his excellent reputation, what does the resume say as a head coach, Any Super Bowls, anything like that?

  • And yet he's getting the guy so far, I have to credit Arians even when I've raised an eyebrow.

  • Really?

  • You're gonna call Tom Brady out like that, or damn, you're gonna cover for him like that when it's obviously not true.

  • So far, Arians has shown me a very good sense off what busting buttons to push and when to push him.

  • So even though once again, I'm like, Wow, he really went there.

  • I have to defer to his judgment because so far it's worked there in the middle of a very successful season.

  • I don't know how much evidence there is that he's pushing all the right buttons, though.

  • That's my only thing.

  • I mean, that remains to be seen.

  • We anticipate that he has and that he will.

  • But I think it remains to be seen, and I think that you know what?

  • You can't knock him for trying if that's truly his goal.

  • But I really, really think that people need to think about what I said.

  • In terms of the Antonio Brown thing is what crystallizes that Bruce Areas did not want Antonio Brown on this roster.

  • Bruce Areas was on the record, saying he didn't he wasn't a fit in our locker room.

  • We don't need him.

  • Bruce Areas is the former offensive coordinator in Pittsburgh.

  • He knows Antonio Brown a little bit and did not want him, and suddenly Tom Brady gets there and now we'll embrace Antonio Brown and we'll let him come on board.

  • It was obviously something that Tom Brady has pushed.

  • And so because of that, those are the kind of things I think you need to think about, particularly as it breeds off of what transpired in New England, particularly with what we're seeing from them now.

  • If Jimmy Garoppolo I'm not saying that Jimmy Garoppolo is better than Cam Newton, because I don't necessarily feel that way.

  • But the point is, is that Bill Belichick clearly had Tom Brady successor in mind.

  • He clearly wanted to go in that direction and was denied the opportunity to do so because of Tom Brady's relationship with Robert Kraft.

  • And Robert Kraft obviously usurped the authority of Bill Belichick because he is the owner for the New England Patriots inside with Tom Brady.

  • And so I think if you look at it from that perspective, the fact that that's on Tom Brady's resume, those kind of things and then you look at Antonio Brown being there in Tampa Bay, I think one has to wonder how Bruce Areas is feeling about that right now.

It's kind of weak on the part of Bruce Areas to be calling him out like that.
