Bruce Arians: “You start thinking about the Super Bowl, you’ll get your ass beat”

Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians is reminding his players to take things one game at a time, but he’s putting a typical Arians spin on that coaching cliche.

Asked today about the Super Bowl, Arians shut down any talk of that game and said his team’s entire focus has to be on Sunday’s game in Green Bay.

“We don’t play that game this week. That’s the message to everybody. We play the Packers in the NFC Championship Game. You start thinking about the Super Bowl, you’ll get your ass beat and you’ll be packing your bags on Monday,” Arians said.

Arians hopes his team has no bags to pack and will be playing in the Super Bowl in Tampa. But first there’s business at hand in Green Bay.

  1. Cmon Bruce just think how cool it will be to play for a championship in your own stadium. How cool would that be??

  2. Old adage of “only playing one game at a time.” That’s funny, because there is absolutely no other way to play a game.

  3. Four imperfect teams who could win it all or lose on a given day. Hard to not see the Chiefs as the most prepared for this, but I could see any of them ending up with the ring.

  4. I’m really rooting for Tampa Bay. They are fun to watch and I like watching Bill Belchick getting his face rubbed in it.

    What happens when you start thinking about Defensive Rookie of the Year?

    Nothing bad. Maybe that rookie gets more motivated and elevates his play worst case.

  6. Bruce I thought we told you to stop talking. Don’t say anything… Nothing… Get out of the way

  7. Bruce must be talking about his AZ experience. When they went to Carolina in the NFC game and got the brakes beaten off of them.

  8. The NFL wants Brady to be the only QB to play and win a ring in the teams home stadium. Just watch.

  9. If the Packers and Buccaneers both bring their best games, the Packers will win. The only chance the Buccaneers have is if the Packers lay down again. I don’t see the Packers flopping like they did a couple months back.

  10. Got wonder which way the refs call this one?

    In one corner you have Brady the golden child who supposedly gets all the calls – then in other corner, you have the leagues favorite team, the Packers who supposedly always get the calls……

  11. He’s always so crass. Language matters, especially when you’re an NFL head coach.

  12. When BA isn’t throwing his players under the bus, he’s actually pleasant to hear from.

  13. He’s right. The old cliché “one game at a time” became a cliché for a reason… because it’s true. Any time a team starts looking past the next game that team generally gets beat. Brady knows that and he’ll keep them focused. I hope…. Go Bucs!!! Not gonna be easy….
