Former quarterback-turned-analyst Dan Orlovsky joined ESPN’s Get Up on Monday, a morning talk show hosted by Mike Greenberg, and passionately criticized how Tampa Bay and the team’s offensive coaching staff is utilizing new quarterback Tom Brady following their three-point loss to Kansas City on Sunday.
Greenberg started the segment by posing a simple question.
“Are they running the right offense?”
“Absolutely not,” Orlovsky replied. “The Buccaneers offensively are the walking definition of insanity. Doing the same thing over and over and over again and expecting results.”
Orlovsky reiterated his previously stated issue with Tampa Bay’s lack of pre-snap motion before emphasizing the Bucs’ inability to handle pressure from the Chiefs’ blitzes and their refusal to make play-action passing an emphasis, despite Brady’s success when throwing off play fakes.
“Right now Bruce Arians is wasting Tom Brady,” Orlovsky said. “He got served, on a silver platter, the greatest quarterback to ever play and all you had to do was use him the right way. And he’s completely failing Tom and I’ve got fear that it’s going to bury this football team this season.”
Brady was 4/5 for 83 yards and a touchdown on play-action against the Chiefs in Week 12.
