Bucs head coach Bruce Arians doesn’t hold back from yelling at his players.
Even cursing isn’t off the table.
Tight end Rob Gronkowski gave his take on the tirades. “It’s kinda … at first, it’s like, ‘Wow, that was pretty funny,’ if you’re not receiving it,” Gronkowski explained. “And then when you’re receiving it, you’re like, ‘Oh, shoot! It’s not as funny anymore. I gotta get better, I gotta go out there and perform.’ It gets motivating, for sure. When the head coach is getting on you, it motivates you. It’s all for a good, positive way. It may be colorful language, but that’s fine. It’s the game of football. It’s all to make yourself better. It’s all to make the team better. And that’s what it’s all about. It’s good to have that too… It keeps you going, it keeps you motivated.”
