Jameis Watch: Just Say No To Moss

November 18th, 2014

JameisCrab-legs-stealing, BB-gun-shooting, obscenity-hollering, Heisman-Trophy-winning, national champion James Winston, the pride of Florida State University, continues to look like a much better quarterback prospect than Mike Glennon and Josh McCown.

It’s Joe’s regular nugget on the Jameis Watch, celebrating the best quarterback to wear No. 5 ever in the state of Florida.

Now here’s a funny one. Legendary future Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss, now a FOX Sports 1 analyst, is offering up mentoring services to Jameis Winston.

Man, Moss has one heck of a checkered past to be serving as a life counselor. But that’s what Moss wants to do for Winston, via NFL.com.

“He’s still a young man. You have the people from the National Football League, and he’s still on the baseball field, too. So there are a lot of professional people who are really looking at him, and seeing if he can come and lead a professional team,” Moss said on Fox Sports. “(It’s) the ‘no’ people. He needs the ‘no’ people in his camp. Sometimes people get in your life for the wrong reasons. I’ll say to Jameis … If you need someone, reach out to me. We’ve both been in a similar situation where we’ve had people coming down on us. Feel free to get up with me.”

Don’t do it, Jameis! Heck, a strong connection to Moss might even hurt Winston’s draft stock. As the NFL.com article noted, Winston already has Johnny Football looking out for him.

Joe’s judgment on Moss is somewhat colored by Moss blowing off Joe verbally and with a stare of hate at Super Bowl Media Day.

Keep in mind, Media Day is a day dedicated for the media to, you know, ask questions. But Moss was too busy standing and staring into space while he waited for a some hottie FOX intern to tell him he’d be on the air in 10 minutes.

    This segment is just a waste. Why??

  2. 87ForJameisOrMariota Says:

    Why? Because he might become your next QB and you’re going to have to deal with it or walk away and become a Jags or Fins fan.

    What happens to all you Winston haters if the Bucs do draft him?

    Some of you say the Bucs need o-line help. I get and see that every Sunday.

    The Falcons needed o-line help last season too. They went out and drafted the best OT in college football in Jake Matthews. What did that do for them so far? 4-6 with Matt Ryan at the helm.

    Draft Him!!!!!!

  5. 87ForJameisOrMariota Says:

    deminion …you’re right. Because it’s all a spin on a roulette wheel. He might turn out to be great or he might turn out to be the next Ryan Leaf, but you HAVE to spin the wheel and take a chance.

    I still stand by my words that if they do take him, Buc fans would be whipped into a frenzy in the off-season. That includes women Buc fans as well.

    I see that the autograph signing thingy has now been debunked by ESPN. Proving that, that was all just BS.

    When I was 20-21 years old I was a serial thief(not proud of it). So the crab legs (and butter) stuff doesn’t bother me one bit.

    I don’t care about his ebonics either as long as he wins games and I’m pretty sure none of you would mind as well, as long as we’re winning with him.

    I’ve read all the nonsense thrown his way on this site about his speech and the he said ,she said allegations and on and on.

    So what if he is a bust? Does it really matter? You’re a Bucs fan. Are you not used to busts by now?

    Spin the wheel and take a chance!

    there is no way in hell lovie is drafting a QB in first round. if at all he is not going to start a rookie next year u will see! glazers are not going to make him. or fire him so he needs to win. next year at least 8 or 9 games to keep his job. so why would he want to start with a rookie. I just don’t see it!

  7. Rob Says:

    You will see a hundred Winston articles on this site between now and the draft because it’s controversial and getting this site tons of traffic. Same thing as Manziel last year. Joe knows Winston is a knucklehead that the Bucs would be best served steering clear of.

  8. mike Says:

    @ROB. that’s very true. they can dream. lol not going to happen!

  9. 87ForJameisOrMariota Says:

    @Rob & Mike…well it certainly has not showed up as far as traffic in the comments section. The article was here for hours and no one posted a damn thing. So you’re both wrong on that account.

    Both of you are clearly NOT business owners and the Glazers are.

  10. 87ForJameisOrMariota Says:

    I’ll also add both of your jaws are going to drop on draft day when and if it does happen. Mine won’t.

    Mike says :

    “glazers are not going to make him.”

    How in the ef do you know that? Give more details than I just don’t see it happening…

    If I’m in the business of selling chocolate candy bars, I’m going to go out and find the best chocolate I can find. I’m not going to go out and buy some generic (DE or OL) chocolate to try and sell to the public. Especially after the chocolate I was selling in 2014 sucked and no one bought it.

    Like I said you 2 are clearly NOT business owners.

  11. JC Says:

    Sorry all of you Jameis haters.. But it’s a reality. Winston is a winner. He is a leader on the field. He is a gun slinger. Mike Evans would love him as his qb. Yes Joe gains views from this blog but he is easing you into Jameis being the new face of the franchise. I have gone to the draft the last 4 years. Last year i sat next to drake. (One of JFBs best friends.) Joe wasnt wrong with all the Johnny hype. When the Browns passed on JFB he said Johnny is going to have a long night. champagepapi told me it’s the Browns or bucs Later tonight. Tampa will draft the Florida state product who wears #5

  12. MTM Says:

    This Winston bromance sounds a lot like the Johnny Football crush from last year. I would love to see the Bucs get a franchise QB. Winston isn’t one. Winston’s attitude is one of an athlete who has been pandered to his whole life. His indiscretions covered up along the way to keep his potential earnings on track. As his fame became bigger his incidents become harder to hide. It will only get worse with massive amounts of money. This is a student athlete who makes very questionable decisions and can’t put 2 decent sentences together during interviews. Quarterbacks are decision makers and he is not the brightest bulb by far.

  13. phil Says:

    We should do everything possible to draft James Winston. He is by far the best quarterback in the draft. With him throwing passes to Mike Evans, VJ, & ASJ there would be no stopping us. We would go from having the worst quarterback in our division to having the best. If we get Jameis it will be a great day in Tampa Bay.

  14. Delson Says:

    Drafting a qb will happen IF the glazers put their hand down. BUT I see them as allowing a veteran head coach lovie smith do his thing to build this team up n pick whoever he wants. Lovies track record shows he will go defense. Foster aint bad at lb but do we want good enough or star lb? Do we want serviceable d line or do we need another star pass rusher? Not to mention the holes at safety. We need o line also. Do we go there to hope we find an answer to our horrid run game? Lettin lorig go was bad news bears for us. I think lovie will trust mccown to start next season so would it be worth it to bench a 1st round pick at qb? I don’t know I smell d line for us

  15. Chef Paul for Brandon Scherff Says:


    I’m all for drafting him. Ya, he’s a knucklehead, and it’s a risk, but it’s a risk we should take. You can’t win the lottery if you don’t play. We will always be stuck in this run down trailer park unless we win the lottery.

    But, OL and DE are not generic chocolate. Take a gander at the Cowboys. They’ve always had a QB, WR, TE, and RB’s for years. This year is their best opportunity to get over the hump in years. And it all has to with Jerruh finally drafting OL early for the last few years.

    IMO, the most important positions on a football team in order are QB, LT, and RDE. We need to draft one of those first round. Maybe Jacquies Smith can be our DE, but it’s way too early to say that just yet.

  16. OAR Says:

    Why? Because he might become your next QB and you’re going to have to deal with it or walk away and become a Jags or Fins fan.

    Are you going to be able to “deal with it” or “are you going to walk away and become a Jags or Dolphins fan” when we don’t draft your man crush?

  17. Love and Warrick Dunn Says:

    Actually, Moss is a good comparison here. Randy had a similar negative stigma coming out of both H.S. and college. In fact, if he were coming out now, the firestorm would have been much larger, with social media being what it is.

    Randy had a few speed bumps in the pros (Minnesota traffic cop), but, by and large was a boon for Minnesota and will go down as one of the greatest WR ever.

    Draft Jameis.

  18. Chef Paul for Brandon Scherff Says:


    I would also add the way Moss’ career ended in New England. He shat the bed there at the end and got traded back to Minn. While in Minn, in a presser he mentioned Belichick wast the best ever (something along those lines.) Obviously regretting the choices he made to basically get kicked out of N.E. He learned his lesson just a bit too late.

    Who better to know what it’s like to be an absolute stud and get it all taken away from you by acting like a dolt?

  19. Eric Says:

    Call Brooks instead.

  20. Skyline Crew for Mariota or Winston Says:

    Throwin Samoan

  21. Kingpin1 Says:

    Gonna be very funny if on draft day we have a chance to draft Winston and don’t !!!kinda of like last year with Johnny who is riding the bench .

  22. Rrsrq Says:

    Let Winston’s draft stock fall, Bucs might just buck up and win 5-6 games and Winston would need to fall for the Bucs to draft them.

  23. Rrsrq Says:


  24. Love and Warrick Dunn Says:

    There’s some major, major differences in Winston and Manzeil

    Size – Winston has shown he can take big hits, and that it takes more than an arm tackle to bring him down. Manziel is quite small in height and frame.

    System – Winston has excelled in a pro-style system, and can take snaps from under center, as well as shotgun. Manziel played in a shotgun, and a non pro system, much like Mariota.

    Those are 2 pretty important things that front offices look for.

  25. Buctebow Says:

    As Winston would say “mmmblmmsdefetb”! I would rather get Oline help, but whatever, Winston would be an interesting story to watch develop one way or the other.
