Bruce Arians is not about to let a penalty cost his team.
Bucs head coach Bruce Arians was displeased with safety Andrew Adams during a scrum for a loose ball. He was so pissed, Arians smacked him the back of his helmet to get his attention.
The incident occurred in the third quarter after a muffed punt by Eagles returner Jalen Reagor. A pile of players from both teams fought for the ball, which the Bucs eventually recovered.
During the scrum, Adams attempted to pull some Eagles players away from the pile, which preceded Arians’ swipe.

When asked if that was why he swiped at Adams, Arians told The Tampa Bay Times’ Rick Stroud, “Yeah, that was it.”
I asked Bruce Arians why he briefly swiped his hand at Andrew Adams’ helmet after the Eagles’ muffed punt. Adams was trying to pull Eagles players off the pile, which could be a penalty. “Yeah, that was it,” Arians said.

Arians may expect to hear more questioning during his Monday news conference, if not from the NFL.
Arians may just be grandfathered in to that kind of behavior.
Football is a violent sport, hard to imagine coaches not getting fired up once in a while.
