  • So he's asked about Brady's play, and I think, pointedly areas was showing his team.

  • You know, the Goat, the great Tom Brady, who's expected to do great things with this, a stacked team this year.

  • Watch this, everybody.

  • I get a question about Tom Brady's play.

  • I'm gonna say he messed up here, here and here.

  • He even gave credit to Brady for messing up where Brady didn't mess up.

  • He had to walk one criticism back the next day after he looked at film.

  • So he was being honest there because it suited his interest, which is to make the boxes good is possible to show them that he's gonna hold Tom Brady to account.

  • And everyone's talking about Oh, you can't do that to Tom Brady.

  • In fact, Tom Brady knows what it is.

  • He responded to it.

  • The Bucks got better after that criticism.

  • Remember the game in Chicago, where they lost on Brady?

  • Forgot the number of downs, right?

  • He thought, and he was a mental error after he chewed out his offensive line.

  • Harry is covered for him at that press conference.

  • He didn't tell the truth at that press conference, and once Arians covered for him.

  • When Tom Brady was asked about it, he also didn't admit that he just forgot what down it Waas.

  • He didn't admit it because the coach had covered had got his back.

  • He called Tom Brady out when it was the right thing to do.

  • But he also God is back and covered for him when it was the right thing to do.

  • And both times the Bucks responded, They responded.

  • Brady responded.

  • The whole team responded positively, Both set both when he called him out when he covered for him.

  • And then it happened again after the Saints game, the rematch where they lost and they looked worse than in the first game.

  • And that worked to what Arians has shown throughout the course of the season was knowing what buttons to press.

  • So it was misunderstood that that Oh my God, he's criticizing Tom Brady.

  • Sometimes he criticized him.

  • Sometimes he covered for him, but he understood when to do which, and that was the real story to me this year.

  • Well, when he criticized him after the loss to the Rams, he came back the next week and lost toe the Kansas City Chiefs no crime there.

  • But it wasn't like they immediately fixed whatever errors were going on.

  • And I don't think it was overblown because I think at the time, uh, some of the things that Bruce Errands would say it was unnecessary.

  • Now I will openly confessed.

  • And I'm partial to Bruce to Bruce.

  • Errands.

  • I like his style.

  • I like I.

  • I think he's a cool dude.

  • Obviously, he's wise.

  • He's knowledgeable about the about the sport of football is that offensive coordinator in Pittsburgh.

  • He coached big Ben Roethlisberger, coached Antonio Brown.

  • Hey hasn't been shy about talking about the short leash that Antonio Brown well beyond if he brought his shenanigans.

  • The Tampa We.

  • We've seen a lot of things that Bill or that Bruce Arians has said.

  • And more importantly, we have to applaud him because of his staff.

  • In an age where diversity is clearly still an issue in the sport of football, collegiately and professionally, where we're talking about the paucity of African Americans coaching, this man has four black dudes.

  • You got an offensive coordinator who's black.

  • A defensive coordinator is black.

  • You gotta lead assistant who is back is black.

  • You got a special teams coordinator who is black.

  • Nobody else in the National Football League can say that.

  • But Bruce Arians could say that on the opportunities that are gonna come the way of African Americans in the future, Bruce Arians is going to be one of those individuals gonna that's gonna be given a lot of credit because he has shined a light on the capabilities that we all know black men have had that have gone largely unnoticed by some folks within the National Football League, to say the least.

  • Having said all of that, it doesn't mean he's perfect.

  • It doesn't mean that at times that he didn't say stuff that he didn't need to be saying, because you never knew how that was going to end up your Tom Brady could take it, and Tom Brady wasn't gonna snap back at him publicly or anything like that.

  • But Bruce Arians was not Bill Belichick.

  • Bruce Arians didn't have six Super Bowl championships and nine trips to the Super Bowl as a head coach, along with two additional championships.

  • Is a coordinator 2.2 as a resume to justify how he was coming at ah champion, the way that he was with some of the things that he was willing to say in terms of what Tom Brady missed.

  • What Tom Brady didn't do, right, etcetera, etcetera.

  • So I don't think it was overblown.

  • I think it was pointed out at the appropriate time it needed to be pointed out.

  • Nobody held onto it for weeks or months at a time.

  • But in the moment as it happened, it did take you back to say, Damn, he said that.

  • I mean, I don't think there's anything wrong with it, and I don't think that was over blowing it.

  • Well, I think even if you want to give Tom Brady credit, which he deserves, for setting the culture for changing things, because I think everyone would acknowledge just cut Jameis Winston's interceptions in half from last year and the Bucks we're gonna win at least nine or 10 games.

  • Brady gave him a premium over that, because that doesn't mean just cut his interceptions in half and put any, you know, competent quarterback in.

  • They'll be in the Super Bowl.

  • So even if you want to give Brady credit for the leadership and the culture change, you also have to give Arians credit for understanding how much to back off and let Brady do his thing, you know?

  • But they brought in Gronk.

  • That's a Brady call, obviously, even Antonio Brown.

  • I think most people interpreted Aaron's didn't want him.

  • Brady wanted him, so he was their offense a little bit different.

  • Morva Tom Brady offense as the year went on.

  • But Arians deserves credit for that, too.

  • He understood how much to take his hands off of it and give it to Tom Brady and the part that I'm talking about.

  • Stephen A.

  • That's misunderstood is people talked about.

  • Arians is calling Brady out and Aryan, saying it is not even being fully honest.

  • No, no, I'm just answering.

  • Honestly, no, he had a very good sense, and this is very important and underrated with a head coach.

  • It's not just X's and O's.

  • It's a good sense off what buttons to push, who to push him on when you need to get a guy's back when you need to hold them accountable for to the team even publicly and you're not in the Super Bowl by accident?

  • Arians did an excellent job handling Uh, yeah, it's like an embarrassment of riches, and now you have Tom Brady.

  • But that could have gone sideways.

  • It didn't it didn't and he deserves credit.

  • And I'm saying it's easy to say that now because he's in the Super Bowl.

  • Prior to the Super Bowl, we had a wait and see attitude because we certainly weren't knocking what he had said at the time.

  • We had men have been critical about it to some degree, but we didn't overblow.

  • It is the point.

  • What he said was relevant.

  • It was pertinent.

  • We might have questioned it, but it certainly it's certainly raised a few eyebrows.

  • It was not overblown.
