Bruce Arians isn’t going to allow the reigning Super Bowl champions to be troubled by complacency.
Winning a Super Bowl is no easy task, but claiming football’s most coveted honor in back-to-back seasons is an entirely different animal. Arians is well-aware of this notion, as evidenced by the tone he plans to set when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers congregate for training camp in the summer.
“When our guys come back, and that’s my job, I’m going to beat the (expletive) out of them,” Arians said on the “Loose Cannons” podcast, as transcribed by Bleacher Report. “We’re going back to basics, and we’re going to have one hell of a training camp and know what our foundation is.”
Tom Brady likely will have no qualms with Arians’ approach. In fact, it probably will be embraced by the seven-time Super Bowl champion, who regularly took part in rigorous practices over the course of his two-decade run with the New England Patriots.
The Bucs are going to enter the 2021 season with a major target on their back, so putting their Super Bowl LV title in the rearview mirror and hitting training camp hard will be in their best interest.
