SJ - November 9, 2020

The Buccaneers got the shit kicked out of them on Sunday night by the Saints.  New Orleans dominated them in all phases of the game from start to finish.

Tampa's offense looked really bad.

On Monday head coach Bruce Arians took a shot at his quarterback.  According to Arians, Tom Brady didn't target an open Mike Evans enough.

From Larry Brown Sports:

Mike Evans caught just four passes for 64 yards in Tampa’s 38-3 loss, but Arians did not feel that had anything to do with Evans failing to get open. On Monday, Arians told reporters Brady missed multiple opportunities to get Evans the ball.

“Mike was open a bunch in that ballgame. He didn’t get targeted. That’s all,” Arians, said, per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. “Mike was open.”

You have to love Arians for this.  He doesn't care who you are and how many rings you have.  If you're not getting an open Mike Evans the ball everyone is going to hear about it.

With that said getting Mike Evans the ball more on Sunday night wasn't going to win the game.
