By Michael Hurley, CBS dangolka

dangolka (CBS) — On Sunday night, Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians publicly criticized the GOAT. On Monday, the coach tried to place some toothpaste again within the tube.

Chatting with reporters, Arians stated that his preliminary evaluation was improper, and that Tom Brady was not responsible for his first interception. As a substitute, Arians shifted blame to receiver Mike Evans for operating the improper route in opposition to the protection which the Saints ran.

Right here’s a have a look at the interception in query:

After the Bucs misplaced that recreation, Arians pinned the blame for each of Brady’s interceptions on the QB.

“[Brady] thought Mike was taking place the center. It’s a distinct protection. Mike learn it proper,” Arians stated Sunday. “He ought to’ve bent throughout his face, however Tom simply overthrew it.”

Whereas the blame for the second stays on Brady’s shoulders, Arians did modify his evaluation to place that one on Evans as an alternative of the 43-year-old QB.

Whereas Arians did take again that specific blame on Monday, he didn’t sound overly enthused about Brady’s total efficiency.

Brady completed the sport finishing 23 of his 36 passes for 239 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions, the latter of which was returned for a landing by Janoris Jenkins. That one was actually Brady’s fault.

Having performed for Invoice Belichick for 20 years, Brady is in fact accustomed to getting criticized — harshly — by his head coach. Most of Belichick’s critiques, although, have been performed in assembly rooms, throughout movie periods, and in rooms far, far-off from the keen eyes of the media.

Clearly, issues are going to be a bit totally different down in Tompa Bay. And simply as clearly, Brady might have knowledgeable his new head coach that if he’s going to go public with X’s and O’s criticisms like that … he higher be appropriate.

Realistically, the perfect route for Arians — now that persons are being attentive to his workforce and care about his quarterback — would possible be to not rush to play the blame recreation in his postgame press conferences. Doing it’s one factor, and being improper whereas doing it’s one other. So maybe he’ll adapt a method of claiming, “We’ll have to have a look at the movie.”

Or, maybe, he received’t. That will surely add to the popcorn-entertainment issue for the remainder of us.
