Jameis Watch: “Confessional Interviews”

March 28th, 2015

jameis 0108Crab-legs-stealing, BB-gun-shooting, obscenity-hollering, Heisman-Trophy-winning, former national champion Jameis Winston, the pride of Florida State University, continues to look like a much better quarterback prospect than Mike Glennon.

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

There’s a new quote out from Jameis Winston, and it highlights is supreme confidence and loveable cockiness.

“I’m pushing myself to a limit that I know nobody can compete with,” Winston tells the Game Changers cameras. That’s the annual NFL Network series that has some top draft prospects training and interacting on camera with former NFL superstars, Steve Mariucci and each other.

It was revealed yesterday that Winston will be on the series, which premieres Tuesday. It also seems, per the season preview (see previous link), that Winston will be working with Kurt Warner. That would explain Warner blessing Winston’s skills at the NFL Owners Meetings this week.

Mark Mayer, executive producer of “Game Changers,” said players will be put through “confessional interviews,” so fans can really get to know them.

That should be fun.

    I have not heard anything…….did Jameis screw up last night ?

    “Pushing myself”. Child please! Just worry about putting on some muscle tone. The Gumby build looks Charmin soft.

    The Times – Picayune Greater New Orleans
    By Larry Holder, NOLA.com

    “New Orleans did meet with Winston at the NFL Scouting Combine last month. I can tell you that the meeting had nothing to do with moving up to take Winston. The Saints wanted to get a read on Winston because they know they will have to face him twice every season when Tampa Bay takes him at No. 1.”

  4. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Probably a good idea for Winston….since he wants to stay out of the limelight!!!

  5. OB Says:


    I know you want and think that Winston will be the pick, but in the off chance he is not, could you please do a daily item on Mariota so we have some idea about him if he is the surprise pick?

  6. Buc1987 Says:

    Jameis Winston was an answer on Jeopardy the other night.

    Asked who threw the game winning pass for FSU to win the National Championship?

  7. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    And this is what we face for a long time. Fameis opening his mouth is enough to scare the beejeebus out of anybody.

    Let’s hope somebody has “coached him up”.

  9. Dreambig Says:

    Looks like a cool show. Will have to check it out.

  10. J Says:

    He’s pushing himself out of his pants with that ever expanding waistline.

  11. Bucfan4life Says:

    32 more days and all the Mariota lovers still in denial will have to slink away or become Jets or Rams fans. OB Mariota is not even in the conversation. Most mocks have him going in the 6th or 10th spot. He ain’t going first so wh would a Bucs website be posting articles about the Jets or Rams next QB. That would just be sill.

  12. Bucfan4life Says:


  13. Lovethepewter Says:

    Mariota is the inferior prospect. Hence no daily article. The pick is winston. There will be no surprises.

  14. Wausa Says:

    Jameis will be the first pick in the draft. It’s very obvious and there is no doubt by those that are reasonable that he should be

  15. Buc1987 Says:

    New York is going to chew Mariota up and spit him out…

    Good luck kid, you seem like such a nice guy. The media can be brutal up there.

  16. Macabee Says:

    Might want to check out the waistlines of the guys with multiple Super Bowl rings. Then check out the guys like Josh Freeman. You might want to be careful if that’s your barometer for success.


  17. rayjay1122 Says:

    Welcome to Tampa Winston. Within 3 years the Mayor of Tampa is going to present Winston with the keys to the city weather it is for leading the Bucs to a Super Bowl victory or leading the Gasparilla invasion. One way or another it is going to happen.

  18. TheDon Says:

    OB- were not taking mariotta. Just face it

    maybe you’re new or have a short memory but this very site covered the Browns QB more then it’s own pick last year.

  20. Buc1987 Says:

    Firethecannons…to me Joe’s “Manziel Watch” was laughable, especially when partically no one out there had the Bucs taking Johnny.

    So this is like comparing apples to oranges.

    We have the top pick and it’s very hard for me to believe that all these 150 people, analysts, scouts, owners and the like are going to get the pick wrong when they are all on the same page.

    Yet we still have a few citing the unpredictability of Lovie Smith…but come on, is that all these fans have left to hold onto…whatever makes them feel better I guess.

    I love it”Nole Nation”stand up. Won’t be long now lizards.

    Testing, testing, check 1, check 2.

  23. 87LikesFreeJerseys Says:

    Hey Joe…Erik’s buying me a Winston jersey. With the money I save from not having to buy one, I can donate to JBF this year. It’s only fair afterall, without your site, I would not be getting a free jersey….

    So thanks Joe’s.

    Perhaps I can do this every off season and rack up some nice jerseys.

  24. Erik the WiseMMan Says:

    He’s definitely a good QB, but I think he thinks he’s better than he actually is…. I think he might think he working hard compared to other QB’s, but I would guarantee that many other QB’s (pro & college) out work him on a daily basis.

  25. Eric Says:

    So Jameis taking the opportunity to work with Kurt Warner is a bad thing?

    And that’s what we have to worry about with him?

    I hope the SOB doesn’t try and learn from any other future Hall of Famers.

  26. 87LikesFreeJerseys Says:

    In return for my free jersey from Erik. I will try real hard to get a Winston autograph next season and give it to Erik as a consolation prize.

  27. Erik the WiseMMan Says:

    87, that is actually a nice gesture. Thanks….

    If Winston is indeed our new QB, I will support him and hope for success.

    I’m just totally infatuated with the idea of adding Mariota and his elite athleticism, character, and overall talent to our team.

  28. Erik the WiseMMan Says:

    For the record, it’s pretty interesting that 3 polls of who fans want us to draft favor Mariota.

    Mariota won the Bucsnation poll, the Tampa Bay Times poll, and the poll on the official Bucs website….

    So, the popular pick for fans is actually Mariota, not Shameus.

  29. WS99 Says:

    Jameis so bad he gets an entire episode all for himself. That’s never happened.

  30. Bucfan4life Says:

    Well Erik if you were a Jets or a Rams fan you would be in luck. Don’t worry though even though you don’t know it yet, as a Bucs fan you are getting the better QB.

  31. JBuc Says:

    It still surprises me everyday to see the hype around Mariota. Not that he can’t be a good NFL prospect, but both Nick Foles and Mark Sanchez looked like world beaters playing for Chip Kelly. Let that sink in. Mark Sanchez looked like a player.

    Please remember that Chip Kelly only coaches the Philadelphia Eagles.

    “He’s definitely a good QB…”


    Well at least this is another sign that those who don’t or didn’t want Jameis are starting to come to their senses. I’m seeing a lot more of these concessions from some/many who were quite negatively outspoken against Winston – but are now softening their stance and giving hints they are coming to grips with the fact that Jameis Winston is very very very likely to be the Buccaneers new franchise QB. Anything could happen and we all concede its not 100% – but its like 90-95% a done deal that the Bucs are drafting Jameis Winston. Go watch his career highlight video a couple more times Jameis dislikers – and keep working on preparing yourself for the inevitable.

    People are saying – Oh its a 50/50 shot he will be any good. Yea – its more like a 90% chance he’s gonna be good and a 60% chance he’s gonna be a Superstar. Even the MGMers – once they see him play are gonna be like – Oh OK I see what you mean – LOL. This dude is a badass QB and he’s full of fire and desire to be great. He wants it. He will work hard for it. He wants tro be a Buccaneer. He wants to lead THIS team to SuperBowls. He already said it long before we even drafted him. And Winston is capable of doing that.

    He needs a supporting cast of course – on both sides of the ball. We have a # of the pieces in place. A Couple good drafts and this team with Jameis Winston WILL BE RELEVANT! Perhaps VERY relevant.

    33 more days…..

  33. JW*MM=MM*JW Says:

    nobody knows who the Bucs will pick. I cant see Lovie dealing with the JW immaturity problems. He is 30 days from being a pro athlete and he looks like he has not seen a gym in 2 years.

  34. Eric Says:

    Pro day Tuesday. Im expecting another masterful performance like at the combine.

    And since the NFL invited him on their network that should put to rest the nonsense that they asked him to stay away from the draft.

  35. lurker Says:

    “…but I would guarantee that many other QB’s (pro & college) out work him on a daily basis.”

    based upon what? are you betting another jersey?

  36. Erik the WiseMMan Says:

    Lurker…. Based on his flabby out-of-shape physique. Your boy is kinda lazy when he has freetime

  37. Bill Says:

    To paraphrase several champion athletes:

    “You’ll never be the best if you don’t think you are”

    I’ll take Winston and his mindset all day, every day.

  38. lurker Says:

    aren’t you just a pill pusher? what the hell do you know about physique, especially when you never met the man?

    you are far from wise and usually just a winston troll.

  39. 87LikesFreeJerseys Says:

    Betty : Yes, yes and did you see how he ties his shoes…OMG?

    Mildred : Oh yes that Winston is such a slacker. Just how can he be trusted when he ties his shoes in such a way?

    Sally : And how.

  40. delson Says:

    So why would the rams pick mariota?
