Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach and former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians talks about the differences between coaching Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and some of the other quarterbacks he’s coached in his NFL career on Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2020 as the Buccaneers prepare to face Kansas City in Super Bowl LV.
“[Brady’s] preparation reminds me so much of Peyton Manning,” Arians said. “Those two guys just set the bar as far as preparation for the guys that I have coached. Ben didn’t want that stuff. Big Ben, he just liked to go play, and he knew what he was doing, but you didn’t want to overload him. Andrew Luck was the same way. He was so smart. But all these guys have a grit about them that they can will themselves on other people and make them win.”
