Bruce Arians: Certain perceptions of Tom Brady are ‘just wrong’


Before Tom Brady formally hits the sphere as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, his new head coach, Bruce Arians, needs to set the report the straight.

“He can make every throw,” Arians instructed ESPN. “He can do everything we want to do in our offense.”

Arians thinks his new quarterback is just not solely able to throwing deep, however is flexible sufficient to grasp when shorter balls are definitely worth the funding.

“I think the perception is just wrong,” Arians stated. “I thought his deep ball was outstanding last year.

“I’ve had a couple quarterbacks that just keep looking deep – they won’t throw the checkdown. [Offensive consultant] Tom Moore has the best saying in the world: ‘You don’t go broke putting money in the bank. Take the damn checkdown.’ We don’t have to teach Tom that.”

According to ESPN Stats & Information, Brady had a 43 % completion charge on passes of 20 or extra air yards final season, the seventh-highest within the league, and threw seven landing passes for 20 or extra air yards, his most since 2006.
