Perhaps Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians' critiques of the two interceptions quarterback Tom Brady threw Sunday caught some off guard. After all, Brady's former coach with the New England Patriots, Bill Belichick, rarely offers that type of assessment toward one player or a single play. 

Nonetheless, Arians cleared the air this week by saying he and Brady "are fine." 

"I don't really care what other people think. So it's just what he and I think," Arians told reporters Wednesday, via ESPN. "We left the stadium fine. We showed up today fine. There ain't nothin' to talk about."

Following the Buccaneers' 34-23 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, the 67-year-old head coach pinned both of Brady's interceptions on the quarterback himself, saying wide receiver Mike Evans properly read the defense on a miscommunication over the middle that led to the first turnover and that the pick-six Brady threw in the second half was a "bad decision."

On Monday, Arians reversed course after watching the game film and declared Evans in the wrong on the first interception, per ESPN.
