Jameis Watch: Stay Home

March 22nd, 2015

jameis 0212b

Crab-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.

Joe wrote about this earlier, but not it is now popping up in major newspapers, in Gotham no less.

The common narrative of Jameis Winston staying home for the draft was so that he could be with all his family and friends back in Alabama, rather than with only a handful who are allowed to attend the draft in Chicago, where Jameis could man hug NFL warden commissioner Roger Goodell.

But, if one is to believe Bob Raissman of the New York Daily News, the NFL told Winston to stay home because they don’t want him booed off the stage.

And reports have surfaced that Goodell, during a Park Ave. sitdown with Winston, may have suggested the quarterback stay the hell out of Cook County on draft day and take the lucky phone call in sweet home Alabama.

The theory is Goodell, the NFL’s Bungler In Chief, doesn’t need his picture taken first hugging, then handing a Bucs jersey to a cat who had rape accusations leveled against him, lifted some crab legs from a Piggly Wiggly, and cussed up a storm in the Florida State cafeteria. Apparently, Goodell is still more concerned about his own image than Winston’s. The commish probably cringes when he looks at those pictures of him and Johnny Rehab at last year’s draft.

Yet if the quarterback stays home, could it be worse for Goodell? That depends on how the two outlets airing the draft — the NFL Network and ESPN — cover the situation. The right thing would be to report why Goodell might not want to be seen with Winston, then have a few of the thousand Gasbag analysts offer an opinion. This would not make Goodell look good.

To be fair, that would not be rape allegations, but sexual assault allegation — singular (cleared four times, Joe might add). And that would be a Publix, not a Piggly Wiggly, but let’s not let facts get in the way of a good southern-illiterate-hicks story and narrative.

Again, Joe has gone on the road for Bucs games, and on Saturdays, would often find watering holes to watch college football. With Florida State ranked high, they were always on a TV somewhere. The vile reaction by patrons whenever Winston made a play absolutely stunned Joe.

Once, Joe went back to his old stomping grounds in the Midwest and back one of his old haunts, where an old friend of Joe’s went off on Winston in conversation as if the kid were Charles Manson.

The visceral hatred of Winston outside Florida is both impressive and scary. The NFL doesn’t want the crowd in Chicago to erupt when he crosses the stage, or start a riot, live on two broadcast networks.

    I booed Winston when he did his Garo Yepremian imitation in the Oregon game.

    A current Mariota/Winston poll on a different Bucs site has 2166 votes so far and it is 56% in favor of Mariota. Obviously, this site is pro-Winston, but that doesn’t represent the pulse of the entire fanbase. I personally think Mariota will have a much better NFL career than Winston.

    Did I not already tell you that you are an idiot?

  4. Buccfan37 Says:

    That’s funny, the NFL scared of a little bad publicity. The shame, they say they don’t care but they care big time. No wonder Winston is’nt all the rage as the draft draws nearer.

  5. #BarrytheCreepyCarCrook Says:

    Ok. I’ve seen the light. After many therapy sessions I’ve seen the error of my ways. It seems that my mother was a groupy of the band the “Culture Club” and I am the bastard son of Boy George. He doesn’t want anything to do with me. It seems that I’m too effeminate. Anyway, after hours of therapy, it came up that my mother(the Monster) stopped breast feeding me at the tender age of 12. Right? 12! WTF! Well, that will leave a lasting scar. But I’m powering through this. And now I want to see Winston as our QB. Though I am a serial car thief I am trying to change my ways.
    Excuse me for a moment, I have to feed my girlfriend.

    And….? 95% of Eagles fans wanted Ricky Williams over Donovan McNabb… who the hell cares about who the fans want? If the Bucs decide that Winston is the player can best help them win games, and he is able to do that, he should be the pick. As many have proven on here time and time again, most fans are absolute morons when it comes to evaluating talent and knowing what is actually best for a team.

  7. P'cola Buc Says:

    @ Erik

    Explain why the last 50 mock drafts show overwhelmingly a 97% choice of Winston going number 1 to the Bucs? (Dcallprosportsreport). These mock drafts are created by those who professionaly make their living scouting the NFL. Moreover, reports are now surfacing that Mariota’s highly introverted nature may not be best suited in the NFL to lead men. This concern is growing. The more exposure Mariota has on television the more this is exposed. Mayock is practically in love with Mariota but even he ranks Winston as the number 1 QB and draft pick in this draft.

  8. Joe Says:

    And….? 95% of Eagles fans wanted Ricky Williams over Donovan McNabb…

    And Bucs fans wanted Trent Richardson, Tavon Austin and Mark Ingram. How’d those guys work out?

  9. Dave Pear Says:

    Absolutely agree with you. Also, this poll is probably not as accurate as Joe’s poll.
    I went there and was able to vote twice.
    Joe’s polls will disallow that.
    So you could have people like Barry sitting in his basement
    voting multiple times.

  10. Joe Says:

    So you could have people like Barry sitting in his basement
    voting multiple times.

    Uh, oh.

  11. Zam Says:

    Goodell doesn’t trust that his pic with Winston won’t be sprayed all over the papers should Winston get accused of something else.

    He’s going to get booed like crazy anyway. His absence won’t prevent that. And if he goes #1, it will make the NFL look really bad. Even worse than having a bunch of cheaters win the championship.

  12. JSmalls Says:

    I’d bet my money that Goodell will get booed louder than Winston if Winston were to go in the draft.

  13. Newbucsfan!!! Says:

    A segment of the population as well as the media in Chicago hate Winston. Now if they can’t stand Lovie who only guided their team to it’s 2nd superbowl and made them relevant for a decade. How do you think they will react to Winston being selected by him? He will be booed worse than Donovan McNabb was whether at home or in Chicago. Go Bucs! Go Lovie! Go Winston!

  14. Newbucsfan!!! Says:

    I will watch every away game next season just to see and hear all of the vitriol aimed at the Bucs/Winston. The Bucs will be the national story next season and the more they win the more they’ll be loathed outside of Florida, AWESOME. No city will want their team to lose to the Bucs and this will be GREAT. Bucfan4sure

  15. Leighroy Says:

    So the nfl is scared of some boo’s and its image if Winston is drafted number one. How does anything change by having him stay home?

    They still announce his name (and everyone will still boo), they still will interview him, run highlights, debate for 15 minutes and on and on and on.

    The only thing this avoids is the traditional Goodell hug. Why can’t they just agree to go in for a handshake instead?

    Are the Bears Draft representatives being asked t stay home and call in the pick to avoid hearing the Chicago fans inevitably boo their pick too?!

  16. David Says:

    That’s becuz the rest of the country just thinks that Tallahassee PD covered up the crime if these morons would read objective journalism other than the NEW YORK TIMES they would get a full picture. But no, they want to have someone to hate and since they’ve hated sooo long no point in stopping now! Lol. It’s sad that society judges a 21 yr old soo hard nowadays and stops him from enjoying accomplishments in his life. Terrible. He made mistakes who of us haven’t?

  17. salish_seamonster Says:

    Winston guaranteed to win most hated rookie of the year.

  18. Newbucsfan!!! Says:

    I say the Bucs and their fans need to embrace all of the negative publicity you’ll receive and embrace being the bully. The new era of Buc ball begins April 30th 2015. The NFC South is a good division last year was a fluke and the Bucs will need to be the bad ass in the division to win it.

    I can’t wait for Joe to write articles about the opposing teams fans and media in an uproar over their teams brutal loss to the Bucs.

  19. P'cola Buc Says:


    “Winston guaranteed to win most hated rookie of the year” …..

    Yep Salish and it will look fine next to Winston’s Rookie of the Year award”.

  20. MadMax Says:

    He’s going to fit right in. The Bucs never get any love anyway plus he WANTS to play for us. I’d stay at home if I was him too….but maybe fly in last minute at Rayjay to the draft party. Thats would be something.

  21. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LMFFAO. Goodell has been being booed over the last 5 NFL Drafts. How will this be any different?

    So if the “stay home” for the draft is being questioned, why isn’t the “who actually called the meeting in NY….Goodell or Winston” being questioned?

    Curious as to “You can Call Me” Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson think about this situation…on second thought…..NOPE!

  22. Newbucsfan!!! Says:

    I would also say that the kid should go to the draft, feel/hear the hate and take it all in, absorb it and turn it into one big vitamin B shot for the team and kick some @$$ next season. Too big/too strong on offense and too hard/too fast on defense. C’mon Tampa embrace your inner seahawk,steeler,raven and SUH.

  24. Elle Says:

    If he wants to go, then I think he should go. So what if he gets booed? Better get used to that, because he’ll get that kind of treatment each and every time he’ll don the Bucs’ uniform outside of Tampa. Are you telling me that Jameis Winston can’t handle that sort of pressure? He can’t deal with some fans booing him? That hearing that reaction when he’ll step on the stage will, somehow, damage him? Nah, I refuse to believe that.

    He should go and if he gets booed… well, that means he’ll have to repay those Chicago fans by tossing many TDs in their stadium during the course of his career. So, in short, I don’t think the advice to “stay home” is a good one.

  25. ToesOnTheLine! Says:

    “Outside of Florida, the visceral hatred of Winston is both impressive and scary”

    I don’t know if I’d call it hatred for Winston, but I can say it’s pretty perplexing for someone “outside of Florida” to read all this constant delusional posting about how Winston is NFL ready from day 1 to lead the Bucs to a Super Bowl because he is almost as good as Andrew Luck. He has some good qualities as a QB, but off field issues/immaturity aside there are still issues with mechanics and interceptions. I won’t be crying in my beer if the Bucs draft him, but my expectations of him being successful with a NFL team are much lower than most of the FSU faithful here. Like Mariota I truly believe he’s going to need a few years before being ready.

  26. Eric Says:

    Like Chicago is pure as the driven snow.

    Maybe they should put some effort into changing the fact that they are the murder capital of the world.

    Nah hate on a cleared college football player instead.

  27. Bucs55 Says:

    All this hype and talk over a rookie that hasent played 1 down in the nfl smh qb is the hardest position in all sports all this talk about hes a winner and that hes goin to take us to the promise land smh …HES A ROOKIE and a rookie that struggled alot last year now imagine against nfl defenses smh

  28. Buc1987 Says:

    Elle…He’s been booed throughout his entire college career when FSU went on road games. He’s dealt with fans dressing up like snow crabs, and chants of no means no by Oregon players.

    I’m sure he can handle the boos, no problem what-so-ever. This kid has, had to deal with immense pressure at a young age.(some brought on by himself)

    How did he respond to the pressure? He won.

  29. Bucfan4life Says:

    Hey Bucs55 here’s a suggestion. Take a 2nd grade English class and find out what periods and commas are. Hard to take an illiterate poster serious.

  30. Chef Paul Says:

    I don’t buy Goodell has anything to do with it. Not for a second. If he does, then he’s a bigger p*ssy than the one Jameis was hollering about on that table!!

  31. Bucs55 Says:

    Im sorry i forgot FSU fans get upset when someone has a negative opinion on winston . This aint a FSU fan site its a bucs fan site jump off the D### already and if you dont like what i posted then pass right by it .

  32. Chef Paul Says:

    Plus like Joe says. The NFL loves them some drama. Hell, they still show McNabb getting booed at the draft all the damn time on NFL network. The first pick getting booed would give the talking heads something to talk about until the season started. Goodell ain’t scared of no boos.

  33. MariotaOrWinstonOrWalkdaPlank Says:

    Oh my. Joe, this is getting out of hand. Remember what happened after you posted a photoshopped a picture of Johnny Rehab in one of those stunning, awesome old Bucs jerseys last year? Yea he ended up with a little more brown stuff on his uniform instead.

    Regarding fan choices in the draft, you lobbied for Johnny Rehab and Mo Claiborne the past two seasons, how have they turned out? 🙂

    Draft can’t get here soon enough. Joe is running out of real estate on the Winston articles.

  34. P'cola Buc Says:

    @ Buc1987

    Nice presentation of Jameis’ Awards.(Expected no less from you)

    Winston: Winner of 24+ awards.
    Chosen to be #1 pick overall by the Bucs in reference to the last 60 mock drafts by 97%. (DCallprosportsreport)

    Perhaps Bucs fans may embrace the positive potential of this young man
    playing on our team trying to change the culture of this floundering franchise.

  35. MariotaOrWinstonOrWalkdaPlank Says:

    87 I thought you were taking a break? Your Winston rager getting out of control? 😉

  36. Buc1987 Says:

    You mean to tell me that Winston’s going to be surrounded by professionals on his own team and not just college kids from FSU?

    Real pro WR’s and real pro RB’s….

    The kid struggled for a reason last year and us FSU homers will tell you that he carried that team. Like I said 2 MONTHS AGO 5-6 of his INT”s this past season were the result of balls being tipped off of freshmen WR’s hands. YOU people in here said I was full of shyte back then. Fast forward to this week and Daniel Jeremiah went over each of Winston’s picks and sure enough, what does he say? “Five of those picks were not his fault, dues to freshman WR’s tipping the ball in the air.” Golly geeeee Really Daniel?


    Hell I only did the research because I wanted to learn more about our future QB and why there was so much hype about him from pee wee, to high school, to college and now pros. Then I see some of you come in here talkin such baseless foolishness when it comes to the kid.

    Do YOU want to know why there is so much hype about him? Do the research and find out. It’s not my fault some of you are so uninformed. How do you base you OPINIONS without knowing anything about the kid is beyond me?

    It’s clear that some of you have no clue, with some of your posts, because you JUST DON’T GET IT!

    It really has NOTHING to do with being a Noles fan. When all the mocks are saying it’s Winston, they don’t just say it’s going to be Winston. They all give a reason why afterwards. Are they FSU fans too?

  37. Buc1987 Says:

    Sometimes it’s REAL hard to hold back…especially when I get a few beers in me.

    Reading some of these comments and what’s being said just BOGGLES my mind.

    Do some research on the kid, then get back to me.

    That’s all for now. Time to crack another bottle, make your body waddle.

  40. Nybucsfan Says:

    People do HATE him

  41. MariotaOrWinstonOrWalkdaPlank Says:


    Yup, winning awards in college means about as much in the NFL as winning the Spelling Bee in 3rd grade. It’s great and all, but it’s completely irrelevant to NFL success. I am pro Winstin AND Mariota while leaning Mariota, you don’t see me spouting off his college accomplishments.

  42. Tackleblockwin Says:

    I’m good with either Jameis or Williams in rd 1. After that go best available. Filling needs never works out. Plus, we have plenty of holes to fill.

  43. MariotaOrWinstonOrWalkdaPlank Says:


  44. SuperSam Says:

    Pretty much every other website out there except this one is all in favor of Mariota, I think the Glazers will end up making the right decision and pick Mariota. I feel that Winston is to much of a PR nightmare for a lot of teams to handle, especially a Lovie Smith team, that’s just not how he operates.

  45. Bucs55 Says:

    Im not saying anything . Im just letting it known awards dont really mean much in the NFL .As well as college winning record dont nether . And I dont hate him im just tired of people making it out to be that hes already a all pro . Hes still a rookie in the last 15 years theres been 35 first round qbs tooken . Only 11 of them are still productive players in the NFL. Thats less then a 33 percent chance that winston or mariota will be good .

  46. Bucfan4life Says:

    Hey buccs55 I am a UCF alum and I am a gator fan. I’m a Bucs fan first though and Winston is the obvious choice. Doesn’t change the fact that you’re illiterate.

    I agree.

  48. bucgator Says:

    Like I have said..If we select Jameis I will support him 100%, But I also know that I must accept what comes with that selection. Unfortunately for his first yr the Media will hound him

  55. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Is this a re-run episode of Jameis Watch?……seems like this is the third article on Winston staying home.
    How about a re-run of the “Winston visit to Tampa”….I’ll set my recorder…

    Winston should be the first overall pick by Tampa. Lovie let Jameis make you a hall of famer

  58. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    “Did I not already tell you that you are an idiot?”

    That’s your response. Are you familiar with the psychological term “projection”.

    How long did it take you to come up with such a clever and well thought out retort. I know if that had been directed at me I would have really been chastised. I mean when someone displays such impressive critical thinking skills you just gotta be impressed!!!!

  59. David Says:

    Amazing we are going to pick someone that everyone outside of Florida absolutely despises as a person.

  60. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    If you can’t take the heat stay out of the kitchen. I’ve accepted the Fameis as #1 pick from the Winstonites.

    Eventually as long as Fameis grows up this will pass. But it will take time!

    You can love Fameis all you want. He may be the next coming of Ben Roethlisberger and take the Bucs to two or three SB’s and your “football” judgement on Fameis may be spot on.

    You Winstonites may also be correct about his “real” character and he’s not a self centered punk but rather a good guy.

    Even IF he is all that, it’s not going to change the perception of him for lots and lots of people.

    Understand that you’re dealing with Buc fans here. We’re starved for a winner and we read all of your football based reasons and whet our appetite and make us want to believe he really is a good guy.

    WE are the exceptions. Most fans are far more casual than JBF posters and far less knowledgeable about football or any of the facts surrounding Fameis troubles. They don’t care!

    And so Winstonites you and Joe have me on board but I’m easy! 🙂

    The rest of America will not be easy. Just get ready for the crap to hit the fan for awhile. But if Fameis turns the Bucs into winners and IF he keeps his nose clean and doesn’t say stupid stuff it’ll eventually pass.

  61. P'cola Buc Says:

    Then Winston won’t be chosen to head the Boy Scouts but just to help get this floundering team turn around its fortunes. And the mock drafts show Mariota in decline having only 3% chance of being chosen 1st. No trends heading anywhere towards Marota. Mayock really likes Mariota, but even he places Winston going first overall.

  62. SuperSam Says:

    The only way Winston will be on this team is if we take a defensive end with the first pick and the Winston in the second round. Other that that I don’t see it happening. Theres a good chance Winston drops like a rock.

  63. bucgator Says:

    SPBF you can’t be using 50cent words around here like retort and confusing people

  64. Sick of the debate Says:

    Every draft when they introduce Goodell, he gets booed by all. Maybe he should stay home too and mail it in as well

  65. WS99 Says:

    Today Winston is on a photo shot in chitown. Next week he’s on game changers nfln. Next month he’ll be an NFL qb. Goodell may hate him, although doubtful, but he’ll certainly make money off him.

    rumor has it that lovie has amari cooper at #1 bc he needs a slot rcv/returner.

  66. the real Bucobruce Says:

    Marcus Mariota will adapt adjust and learn how to be an NFL quarterback from his mistakes.if you look at Jameis Winston s. one loss he will cry bitch and complain and blame everyone else.tampaaaaa

  67. Buc1987 Says:

    Ya see what I mean when I say these people have NOT done their research about the kid and just spout off their own opinions….

    Go to the top of the page, scroll down and you can pretty much tell who they are…the clueless ones.

    Then when you call them on it. They say “hey I’m entitled to my opinion”. Even though they never researched anything about the kid…they just spout off.

    Every pretty much every analyst in the country thought Winston played a great game against Oregon and he did, but some these people don’t know that, now do they?

    Some say he will drop like a rock in the draft. Those people are utter morons at this point. Where will they be on draft day after Winston gets pick by the Bucs first overall? Certainly nowhere near JBF or atleast not using the same screen name.

    Some of them say us FSU homers are saying is a great kid and has a great personality, BUT it’s not just us that say that. It’s virtually everyone that comes in contact with him that says it. They wouldn’t know any of that though and you wanna know why? Research.

  68. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    I struggle to understand the logic of that last post.

  69. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:


  70. P'cola Buc Says:

    Nothing anywhere shows any decline in Winston’s position. A decline is noted however everytime Mariota is interviewed. His significant introversion will be difficult to overcome in order to call plays in the huddle and lead the players the men of the NFL. I think he is a talented athlete but his climb to be a leader in the NFL will probably be greater than 1st thought. This being said I embrace either of these two QB prospects… But we must choose a QB with this first pick.

  71. Bucfan4life Says:

    Well buco Bruce if you are correct the Rams or Jets will have a heck of a QB. I’m personally pulling for Winston to succeed since he is going to be Buc!

  72. Buc1987 Says:

    I think they would want to know a little bit more of WHY we think the kid is so great.

    I think they would want to learn WHY he’s going to be picked number 1 overall.

    I think they would want to know WHY he’s chosen to be #1 pick overall by the Bucs in reference to the last 60 mock drafts by 97%.

    How come all these analysts and experts have him going to the Bucs at #1? Could all 30 of them be wrong and YOU Joe Blow Bucs Fan are right? Really?

    Do you see why it’s HARD to stay away from these comments? If not I’ll tell you why, because it hasn’t sunk in yet to some of these mind numbed imbeciles. Had they done the research on the kid, then they would already be on board.

    Hell I can handle Barry and his nonsense more than these guys that come on here and state things as if they are factual when they’re not.

    I guess I’m going to have to lock myself in a closet for the next 39 days or find a secluded island with no internet.

    …And to me picking Winston is a no-brainer at this point. So what’s that say about the guy that comes in here and says Winston played like crap against Oregon or Winston’s going to fall to the second round?

    It’s a no-brainer and it seems that some fans out there don’t have a brain at all, when they make such STUPID, yes I said STUPID comments…

    When will it sink in? I don’t know. Goodell will call his name off as a Buccaneer on April 30th and we still MIGHT have some fans coming in here saying they never heard it or it didn’t happen. That’s how DUMB you look to me right now.

    Guess what? You get to be just as DUMB again tomorrow. Wash, rinse and repeat.

    Just the BUCS and the Bucs fans luck. They get the top pick and they could possibly draft a player that is one of the most hate players in history. Can’t even go to the draft they will boo him out of the place. Every away game the are going to attack him it’s not going to be good. People that don’t believe that live in a bubble.

    I love how now the only thing Jameis haters have to say is other websites like Marcus M. more. Like it’s a popularity contest.
    Sam if you really think Jameis will drop put up or shut up. How about a pair of opening day tickets lower bowl between the(109-12 or 134-137)30’s, I say the Bucs draft Winston (1st overall) you can have the rest.

    We talking about the QB that was responsible for the air fumble? The play that was just a notch below the butt fumble for most embarrassing moments in football history?

    This is one of the worst threads ever.

  78. P'cola Buc Says:

    Since none of us were even there that night in question it amounts right or wrong to be a “he said …she said” situation … A far cry from Michael Vick or a Greg Hardy situation….Winston “the most hate(d) players in history”…anyone can see that to be grossly exaggerated. I beginning to think what someone pointed out to me is true. That it is you who are trying to devaluate Winston so that your beloved New York Jets can grab him at #6…they would take Winston in a heartbeat.

  79. Andrew 1 Says:

    Yea, sure people are going to attack him. At every game opposing fans are going to mention the rap, and this and that. But you know how those names are going to eventually die out? By him winning AND (cant stress the “and” enough) by him staying clean from here on out. If those two things happen, and I believe they can and will, then a year or two from now you wont hear those names anymore. But those 2 things must happen in order for his image and likeability to increase, and I believe he’ll pull it off.

  80. Andrew 1 Says:

    That’s how Roethlisberger pulled it off. He’s become one of the best QB’s in the NFL since entering the league, and I haven’t heard a peep out of him getting into trouble since 2010. Result- what rape? The same thing will happen with Winston if he wins and starts staying clean from here on out.

  81. P'cola Buc Says:

    @ Andrew 1

    100% correct.

  82. Andrew 1 Says:

    @ P’cola Buc

    And I wasn’t going to say this part, but IF he accomplishes both of those things and some people still feel the need to heckle him, then the hate goes much deeper and race most likely plays a part of it. Some people just don’t want to see a black QB succeed. Not talking about everyone of course, but you’ll get a good 10% percent of that. Again, I’ll wait till he proves he can win and keep his nose clean before I mention race again, but I wouldn’t be shocked at all if that’s the real reason behind some peoples hate. Nobody seems to want to go there, but its a sad truth. I think the majority of our society is not racist, and I’m proud of that, but it still drives some peoples motives. All in all, I think Winston will have a good career though.

  84. Boobie Says:

    the bucs need to go ahead and let the world know there drafting Winston the colts did it with luck when RG3 could of first to that year look how it turn out build some confidence in your guy to run your franchise they should also trade Doug Martin and Dishon Ghoston for AP!

  85. Edgewalker Says:

    “A current Mariota/Winston poll on a different Bucs site has 2166 votes so far and it is 56% in favor of Mariota. Obviously, this site is pro-Winston, but that doesn’t represent the pulse of the entire fanbase. I personally think Mariota will have a much better NFL career than Winston.”

    And most Bucs fans wanted USC Mike Williams.

    Pardon me if I don’t really give a damn what the average fan wants.
