Bruce Arians on QBs Blaine Gabbert and Ryan Griffin
On Monday, Head Coach Bruce Arians spoke to the media. Here is what he had to say about the Bucs backups QBs Blaine Gabbert and Ryan Griffin via Buccaneers.com:
“Yeah, I’ve got a ton of confidence in Blaine – he won some games for us, and big games against teams that went to the playoffs that year. It’s only the second time he’s been in the same offense in nine years, so he’s got that recall [and] he’s played at full speed for us. Griff had gotten better and better, and I don’t care who you’re playing with – when you do the things he’s done in two-minute [drives], it’s noteworthy.”
It seems like Bruce is a big fan of both QBs. He has the utmost confidence in Blaine because Blaine has been in his system before and he likes what Ryan Griffin has done in the two minute drill drives. It’s likely the team will carry 3 QBs this season just based off of Arians words and how well Griffin has played this preseason. Griffin has led the Bucs down the field in both preseason games to either put them in position to tie or win the game. Like Bruce said, it doesn’t matter who you’re going up against but it’s still impressive he can move the ball like that.
