Jameis Watch: Unpredictable Future

November 27th, 2014

Crab-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 daily nugget on the Jameis Watch, celebrating the best quarterback to wear No. 5 ever in the state of Florida.

As one can imagine, Joe gets a lot of quarterback questions. With the Bucs staring down the barrel at a 2-14 season, and the quarterback of the future has been benched and the journeyman starter demonstrates weekly why he is a journeyman, it is easy to understand why Bucs fans are clamoring for a QB.

Look, even today on Twitter, Joe was asked about Robert Griffin III. That’s how bad things are for Bucs fans, they are clamoring for someone else’s broken down bust.

Andy Benoit is on the same page as Joe. Really. Benoit, who types for theMMQB.com, believes the true Bucs quarterback of the future, or at least 2015, is out there.

It is highly unlikely Lovie will find a competent offensive coordinator willing to hitch his NFL future to Josh McCown or Mike Glennon. Instead, said offensive coordinator will want to either develop his own man, or work with a proven quarterback that has played meaningful January football..

Whether that is Jameis Winston or an NFL veteran, we will find out in the coming months. The calendar year 2015 isn’t far away.

    Bringing in some other NFL QB to appease a new offensive coordinator seems like doing the same thing that brought us this season all over again. I can see how that would appear to be the only solution. I have to agree with those who say fix the offensive line, the cart first and then add the horse, the QB. It may be possible to accomplish both over the off season. If so, I would rather the Bucs draft a QB prospect even with their first round pick and then acquire upgrades to the line. That seems a better option than taking some other teams QB that they no longer want. If they want Winston go get him. Now, let all the haters come and entertain me.

    No offensive coordinator with a decent resume is going to come to tampa. It’s career suicide. Lovie’s philosophy and stubbornness will be a huge deterrent in the OC search. Lovie having final say huge mistake. Yet another glazer mistake that will haunt team 3 to 5 years.

    Lovie will do what it takes to win he drafted evans has jackson Winston would crush it in tampa

    Well said Todd. Winston w Evans, ASJ, and Jackson is frightening. Assuming they fire Warhop (how is he still employed? For gods sakes the BROWNS cast him off..and look what happened.) they get the OL to play competent, (like they’re capable of) and watch out. It’s not too muh to think 35pts a game, avg.

    Excuse me but the “hater” copout is growing very wearisome! Our society has gone nuking futs using this excuse when people are called out for their bad behavior.

    I do not HATE Jameis Winston. I totally respect his on field accomplishments. As a Floridian I’ll root for the Noles to win the title again. If the roles were reversed and the Gators were the team in contention I’d root for them on Saturday, but since they don’t I’ll root for the Noles to continue their unblemished season. I’m neither a Noles or Gator fan but a fan of all teams from the Sunshine State. When they play each other I root for the team that needs the win the most.

    I say that to point out that I’m not HATING on ANYBODY when I point out their deficiencies. Jameis is obviously a very talented young man athletically. Character wise not so much. It’s been handed to him on a silver platter and his reaction to all of these blessings?

    There are enough Ryan Leafs, Jamarcus Russells and other first round QB draft busts to make any sane person nervous about drafting a QB with a top pick. I get the need to gamble every now and then however. But I prefer to approach it like and investor.

    It boils down to risk versus reward. When you blow a draft choice on any position but QB it sucks. If you make a mistake on a highly touted QB in the first round and tout him as your franchise, you have gambled three or more years of the franchise success on whether you’re right or wrong.

    Whatever you think of MG8 he hasn’t cost this franchise anything but a third round pick. Top picks like JFro or Dilfer can get coaches and GM’s fired, cause a team to make improper draft selections in other areas trying to take care of your “franchise QB”. The ripple effect of a blown pick on a “franchise” QB in the first round can be devastating. Just take a look at what is going on in the nation’s capital.

    If Jameis can turn his life around and become a role model for all of those who were born with so much less…see QB’s like Russell Wilson or MARCUS MARIOTTA who have accepted their God given gifts with grace and realize that to those who are given a lot….much is expected.

    Here is one way I’d join the Jameis jock sniffers. If we’re going to call those who disagree with anything about Jameis “haters” then I guess the supporters are “jock sniffers”. If Jameis had an epiphany and said something to the effect, I’ve behaved immaturely, I apologize for my mistakes and I’ve decided to forego the NFL draft to use my final year at FSU to grow up and perhaps win another title. He plays another solid year with NO off field issues, and a great PR campaign with him visiting schools, hospitals etc. THEN I’d be comfortable drafting Famous Jameis.

    Winston is a winner. We dont have any QBs that have a National Champions nor a heisman on their resume nor a 27 game winning streak. Im a die hard Gator fan and hate the Noles but can’t dispute the facts. If he’s there when were on the clock, with the way our QBs are playing, how can you not take a chance? But this is Lovie were talking about and he’s lacking in common sense.

  12. Bucfan4life Says:

    The Colts took a shot on Manning and later on Luck. The Steelers took a shot on Big Ben and the Giants took a shot on Eli. All of those guys have won a Super Bowl other than Luck and something tells me he will eventually get one too. It has been 12 years since a mediocre QB won the championship. There is a reason all these teams try to land a franchise thrower. If you have one you have a chance year in and year out. If you have a scrub like Glennon your picking in the top 10 year in and year out.

  13. Luther Says:

    @StPeteBucsFan I agree with your post 100%. I didn’t go to any of the schools so I root for all of the Florida teams. I just want Florida to win no matter what. I enjoy watching college and pro football in our state.

    Saying all that, I really want Mariota if he is available but if Mariota is gone and we have a chance to pick Winston, we better not pass on him. We need a QB so badly, I can’t imagine that fans will give Lovie a pass on this offseason if he does not pick one at the top of the draft.
