Here are some of the best Bucs quotes following their the team’s training camp practice on Sunday, August 1 at the AdventHealth Training Center.

Bucs head coach Bruce Arians’ opening statement:

“Really pleased with the effort. We’re working extremely hard, two days in a row, fast. But I’m not seeing the smart. We’ve got to be a much smarter football team. After looking at yesterday’s practice, [we had] way too many mental errors. Same thing today [with] guys getting lined up, especially those young wide receivers, and it’s time for them to grow up. But you can’t ask anything more from our football team as far as work. Work, speed of practice and all those things – very, very competitive but we’ve got to become a smarter football team quick.”

Bucs head coach Bruce Arians on if mistakes are a product of mental fatigue:

“There is no such thing. There is no such thing. Fatigue makes a coward out of you. We’ve got a few, it’s whipping their ass.”

Bucs head coach Bruce Arians on QB Tom Brady showing frustration after offensive miscues:

“Yeah, guys [have] got to make plays, man. They’re in critical situation, you can’t fall down. He gives you a chance to win the game, you’ve got to go win the game. I don’t care how tired you are.”

Bucs head coach Bruce Arians on if rookie OLB Joe Tryon is meeting expectations and his repertoire of pass rush moves:

“Oh, more than [met them]. He hasn’t been in pads in, what, two years? He’s whipping a lot of guys’ asses. That says a lot about him. He’s carving out a real, real nice role for himself.”

” You should probably ask Tristan and Donovan because he’s kicking their ass pretty good sometimes. I don’t think he needs any more moves, that’s for sure. Maybe a little more strength, but he’s got plenty of that, too.”

Bucs head coach Bruce Arians  on if the Bucs might keep four quarterbacks between the active roster and the practice squad:

“We did it last year, but I don’t know if we’ll need that this year. We’ll see. Today’s the first day of 14-day testing. We’ll see how that goes. We didn’t report any positives. I don’t think this year compares to last year as far as the pandemic. It’s still bad out there, but not for the vaccinated. You might get a little sick but you’re not going to die.”

Bucs head coach Bruce Arians on players getting vaccinated:

“It’s all personal decisions and education. On August 13th, we’ll be 92% (vaccinated) – close to 100, really. We have a couple guys who’ve had it and can’t get their vaccine – as soon as they get their shot, two weeks later they’ll be good. Pretty much we’ll be close to 100%, at least 98%, for the first game. August 13th, we’ll be over 90%.”

Bucs cornerback Ross Cockrell on his overall improvement during the first week of training camp:

“This is my first training camp with the team. I came in last year in the middle of the season and I didn’t really have a chance to build a camaraderie with the guys, it was kind of right to work. Getting to the book, getting to the grind. I think the best part about being in this training camp is being around the coaching staff and different people. Also, having the chance for them to get to know me more and for me to get to know them a little bit more.”

Bucs cornerback Ross Cockrell on Defensive Coordinator Todd Bowles’ coaching style:

“Coach Bowles, our defensive coordinator, he doesn’t hold any punches. There’s a lot of different coverages, there’s a lot of different techniques. Within the different positions themselves, you have to move as fast as you can. I’ve been working to study every night and try to learn the entire playbook, so whenever the team needs me, I can play.”

Bucs running back Ronald Jones on the competition at running back between himself and RB Leonard Fournette:

“Most definitely we’re here to compete – whoever coach puts out there I’m going to do my job regardless, just trying to make the most of every opportunity.”

Bucs running back Ronald Jones on the chemistry at running back with the addition of RB Giovani Bernard:

“He’s helping again bringing that veteran leadership, things like that. He allows the room to be more versatile, so it’s definitely a good combination out of us.”

Bucs running back Ronald Jones on QB Tom Brady’s reactions during practice when the offense is not executing at a high level:

“I think that’s why he’s great – he just holds everybody to a championship standard every day at practice. You know you can’t take days back – you can never get those days back – so just have to go out there and perform every day.”

Bucs quarterback Kyle Trask on how much he has enjoyed his first week in the NFL:

“I’ve enjoyed it a lot – I mean it’s a dream come true to be out here – first NFL training camp, hopefully the first of many so just been trying to soak it all in and keep getting better every day.”

Bucs quarterback Kyle Trask on adjusting to the defensive pressure that DC Todd Bowles throws at quarterbacks:

“It’s a little bit of a process just to get used to the game speed, but it’s just like any step-up you take in football, like from high school to college, from college to the NFL – there’s always going to be an adjustment in speed. So it just comes with experience and reps, I think I’m just doing a good job handling what the coaches are giving to me right now, and doing the best I can to execute.”

Bucs quarterback Kyle Trask on the quarterback room:

“Our QB room is just solid. I guess we have about 40 years total experience in just that quarterback room – and that’s just players. Any questions I have they have a great answer for me. Everything that comes with being a pro day in-day out, what it takes to win. I learn so many great things everyday.”

What do we care what a third string QB with a suspect arm thinks.

Wow you really hate this young man. Why, it’s not his fault our GM saw something in him to make him a 2nd pick. We don’t know the future. He has been the underdog at every level he’s played and still he seems to rise to the challenge. I personally wish him good fortune no matter the end result.

Exactly 76! He’s a Buc and deserves our support, that is, if ur actually a Buc fan. dr has an unhealthy obsession with Trask. The kid seems to be a talented kid and is learning more everyday. Give the kid a chance. He might just surprise u!

Hey dr, did Trask beat u up and take ur lunch money or something? I’ve never seen a fan obsessed with one player before. Relax. It’s going to be ok. Soon security will be knocking on ur door for an interview. Chill!

I’m starting to think you got real feelings for Trask. You have a major infatuation with him. It’s ok to be inlove. Just come out and say it. We’re here for you.

dump Gabbert, keep Griffin and Trask to the PUP list for an imagined injury

Great to see so many Bucs have gotten educated about the vaccines and know how safe and effective they are. Hope they get to 100 percent before the real season starts. When and if Kyle Trask starts for this team I will be behind him 100 percent. Until then, the PR staff should treat him like the fourth string QB he really is.

Perhaps the Pewter Report gang gives Trask some limited attention because he’s a 2nd round draft pick, potentially the QB of the future and a former Gator. Your obsession with and total disdain for him is a bit puzzling. After watching two days of practice, Trask’s arm is just fine. Strongest is Gabbert’s. The youngster is doing what most rookies do…….he’s thinking too much. Something many here refrain from doing.
