Many people still speculate that Tom Brady had a hand in removing Bruce Arians as head coach of the Buccaneers. His comments today kill that idea.
The Buccaneers fanbase has a history of handling emotional moments and experiences with only some of the logic that these situations require. This isn’t always bad, but it allows some silly rumors to persist when they have no business being said.
One such rumor that seems to be the weakest in its logic is that Tampa’s coaching shift from Bruce Arians to Todd Bowles was due to Tom Brady.
This one has always been hard to follow. So, these people want us to believe that Brady, during one of the most successful stretches of his career, decided to force out one of the best offensive mids in the league because that would help his chances of winning MVP or another Super Bowl?
That one doesn’t hold up all that much.
Arians might be a little abrasive at times, but acting like he would be that much harder to deal with than Bill Belichick to the point of making a move against him is silly.
This story never made any sense from the start, and Brady’s recent comments on Arians ahead of his induction into the Ring of Honor show that these two Buccaneers greats do not have any bad blood between them.
These comments are not coming from someone that hates the subject. Brady is speaking with respect towards Arians, and even the best actors, the GOAT included, wouldn’t fake something like that.
If there was bad blood or this story had any validity, this interview would look very different.
It might still be hard to figure out why these events happened as they did, but fans will need to start coming up with some different justifications with this one put down yet again by more kind words between the two.
