Evan Winter of Bucs Nation joins me as we talk about press conference coverage and how well this secondary has improved over the past eight weeks. There were a lot of good quotes coming out of One Buc Place today. We dig into Arians’ comments around Antonio Brown, Antoine Winfield Jr., and Jordan Whitehead making an appearance on the field albeit in limited capacity.
Evan and I also talk about Byron Leftwich’s play calling and relationship with Bruce Arians. Arians was quoted saying:
I can honestly say I wouldn’t be coaching if Byron wasn’t available.
You can never deny Arians devotion to his players and staff that stick with him. You stay devoted to him, and he’ll stay devoted to you. This extends to his players as well. Sean Murphy-Bunting has had an up and down year. He’s been thrown on the most, but he showed up when it matters the most. He’s accrued an interception every game in the post season. Time will tell if he can make it five interceptions.
Bruce Arians recently commented on the play of Murphy-Bunting:
I think the biggest thing with Sean is he was playing beat up almost the entire season and he learned to play with injuries and still play extremely well. It was a matter of getting his confidence back totally that he could play.
I told him, ‘You at 85 percent [healthy] is better than most people at 100 [percent]. Just get out there and do what you do best.’ Then he started making plays one after another and now he’s playing with extreme confidence.
