Buccaneers counting on Bruce Arians to help quarterback Jameis Winston blossom

Tampa Bay is counting on Bruce Arians to help Jameis Winston realize his potential, however the young quarterback isn't the only component the two-time NFL Coach of the Year has to fix if the Buccaneers are going to end a long postseason drought.

A porous defense has been a problem for much of the team's decade-plus absence from the playoffs and needs immediate attention, too.

So does an inconsistent running attack which ranked among the worst in the league this season, when Tampa Bay lost 11 of 14 following a 2-0 start to finish last in the NFC South for the seventh time in eight years.

Arians came out of retirement Tuesday to replace Dirk Koetter, who made significant strides with the Bucs offense but wasn't able to develop Winston into a top-tier quarterback while going 19-29 over the past three years.

The 66-year-old Arians will be introduced during a news conference Thursday.
