It’s no question that Tom Brady wants to win, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians knows that too well. According to Arians, he witnessed Brady’s winning mentality firsthand 15 years ago.

It’s not the first time that Arians and his new signal-caller will be in the same team, as the 67-year old coach recalled their short stint in the 2005 Pro Bowl where Brady showcased his true greatness even during practice.

“It was way back in the Pro Bowl,” Arians told LA Angels manager Joe Maddon in his new show “Uncorked” (h/t Mass Live). “I was coaching receivers in the Pro Bowl for the Steelers and we had the game. He wanted to win, even in the Pro Bowl. He commands excellence, even on the field. There’s no relaxation on the field when he’s out there. If you’re supposed to be at a certain spot on a route, you better be there or he’s going to talk to you about it.”

Brady was just on his third Pro Bowl stint back then, but it’s clear that the six-time Super Bowl champ was locked in early in his career. Brady, alongside quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Drew Brees, led the AFC to a 38-27 win in the 2015 Pro Bowl. This was also the week after Brady and the Patriots won Super Bowl XXXIX.

Now that Bruce Arians has another opportunity to coach the future Hall of Famer, the Buccaneers tactician is more than ecstatic to have Tom Brady in Tampa Bay and has immediately felt the effect of having an all-time great in his team.

“We’ve got a great locker room, but to now get a guy who has been there and done it six times,” the Buccaneers coach said. “The G.O.A.T. When he talks, they listen. It’s so different than a coach.”
