Hangin’ With Jameis And “Electric Personality”

April 13th, 2015

jameis and magicIs Jameis Winston trying too hard?

Ronnie Lane thinks so. A voice on the Buccaneers Radio Network and WDAE-AM 620, Lane joined his co-host Tom Krasniqi in spending time with Winston on Friday. The possible Bucs next quarterback was mingling with all kinds of locals at the Mike Alstott Foundation event this weekend in Pinellas County.

In the audio below, you can here Lane and Krasniqi’s impressions.

Among various takes, Lane, a classy media veteran, says he felt like Winston was trying to hard to be colorful and personable. But Lane went on to say he talked to event organizers who had been interacting with Winston for weeks, and they said Winston was that same consistent personality, implying that’s just the way he is.

For those interested in all things Winston, it’s an interesting listen.

    Draft drama is good for ratings (and clicks).

    I’ll be glad when this is over, and Winston gets to dive into the playbook.

  3. robert 9 Says:

    he’s got bad character

    no he doesn’t- he’s 21

    I didn’t do any of the things he did when I was 21

    glad your perfect, your just a hater or racist.

    Winston is the pick. I am convinced. I do not even know how it is debatable. I think Mariota has skills but Winston is for sure way ahead of Mariota. Plus Mariota is going to put his team asleep with his lethargic attitude. I think he is a great person just a poor personality. I do not see him having a good command of the huddle.

    You can spray paint a Turd all gold and shiny and cover it with glitter, but on the inside it’s still a Turd

    He’s a phony. And some of you are suckers. We can see, we don’t need you to tell us how great you are. I just hope the Glazers aren’t suckers.

    @ MarshallU LMAO! Good one. A Garnet and Gold Turd to be exact!

    Do you mean to say he’s trying TOO hard?

    A young hungry man walks into a restaurant. A waitress approaches him and asks if she can help him. The man says probably not, I am really hungry but I do not have any money to pay for a meal. She quickly says come on in and have a seat and I will give you a meal. So the man, out of his hunger and trusting the woman, sits down at a table. The waitress brings him a steak dinner with all of the fixings. Now after about 30 minutes and the man was just finishing his meal the waitress brings him a bill. The man says, I told you before that I do not have any money. The waitress call the police and tells them the man is a thief.

    Is the man a thief or did he out of his hunger, make a poor decision? Who is the turd? I would have to say the waitress. None of you even know exactly what happens yet you jump on the hate Winston bandwagon because you have nothing else to bring him down with. He has been foolish but not a turd. Perhaps his accusers are not so innocent like the waitress in the above story.

    He has to try hard given the way the media turned on him by reporting garbage without facts. It’s hard to rebuild a reputation that was wrongly tarnished by people with an agenda and the media operating under the philosophy be first not right.

    rayjay1122….don’t be ridiculous, of course it is debatable. We could debate it all day long. It’s been debated ad nauseam on this site and others for months now! We all have our favorites and we all think we know what the Bucs SHOULD do…but none of us know exactly what they WILL do…which is why the debate rages on!

    debate: a discussion between people in which they express different opinions about something.

    Let me just say that I am in full support of Winston being our pick. I am not a Winston jock sniffer. Earlier in the process I was more for Mariota being the pick. I am not a Seminole fan, I pull for the Gators and Bulls. I just am tired of the ignorance of the system and the majority of our societies mindsets. There are serial killers who have been found guilty and given the death penalty that sit on death row for decades all the while costing tax payers money. Then you have people who are found to be not guilty who are never given the same rights as they had before they were accused. Sometimes people do get away with crimes due to a lack of evidence but with forensic technology today, most criminal activity can be proven with science. If Winston should be looked down upon by society, then society needs to look long and hard in the mirror. I am not perfect and have broken laws in my lifetime that I got away with. There are others reading this who judge and have no room to do so due to your own actions. Some of you are perfect though and will continue to judge. SMH.

    I do think he’s trying too hard.

    Another thing I think is that, after watching the Gruden video, it’s very obvious to me that he wants to play baseball also. When Gruden asked Winston about playing baseball, if he was done, he never convincingly stated that he was done with baseball. He was skirting, by saying “I’m a quarterback.” He was obviously hesitant when Gruden asked him directly if that was his last game as a baseball player (watching video), you could hear the hesitation in Winston’s voice. He lied.

    Just something to consider. I got the same unease from watching the interview with Mariucci.

  17. bucs4lyfe Says:

    theres reasons to be skeptical about Winston just like most of the players coming out of the draft. it happens to a lot of players, honey badger and lots of guys, theres always question marks, even mariota has question marks….some of you don’t have enough talent to be football fans…..to think your all up in arms about off field issues as if that’s where games are won and lost, if you’ve written this guy off your probably the type of fake Christian that couldn’t handle it if your daughter or son said they was gay, you’d probably disown your own children. glad to know the consensus of JW haters think that you are who you are in college and you’ll never change. if you throw a bunch of interceptions in college you’ll be matt ryan in the nfl hahaha wow. lets not get a winning quarterback because it’s all about off field production lol

  18. salish_seamonster Says:

    ^ “fake Christian”???? Since when does any of this have to do with christianity?

  19. bucs4lyfe Says:

    what does crab stealing have to do with football? I was profiling winston haters fool but I get it my bad….tom and Ronnie lane must have been talking about spray painting a turd and I missed that part

  20. robert 9 Says:

    it’s no secret he hates white people and Christians.

    you gots ta be a gangsta a$$ mofo for him to root for you

    rayjay1122…I liked your story, so here is one for you….

    A scorpion comes to the edge of a pond and looks for a way to get across it. Just then a frog emerges from the water. The scorpion says “frog, would you take me across the water on your back?”. The frog looks at the scorpion and says “Why should I take a scorpion on my back, you will just sting me!”. The scorpion replies to the frog “But I cannot swim….if I sting you we will both surely die in the water.” The frog considers the scorpion’s words for a moment and says, “Very well then. Hop on my back.” The scorpion gets on the frogs back and the frog swims out into the water. Half way across the pond, the scorpion stings the frog. The frog cries out “Now we shall both surely die! Why would you do this?”. The scorpion replied calmy to the frog as they sank into the water, “Because I am a scorpion and it is in my nature to sting.”

  22. bucs4lyfe Says:

    well someone is going all klu klux klan today…..lol the closer to draft day the more nervous some people get. Hypothetically if the Glazers did visit this website since joe has been getting more and more access into the buc organization, Robert 9 you would be the person they ignored most and as a matter of fact you’d probably push them to draft winston because of your ignorant posts. im sure if they were here and saw some of the silly comments towards winston it would make them say theres no issue with drafting winston

  24. Dewey Selmon Says:

    That’s a pretty dumb scorpion. Why didn’t he wait until he got to the other shore to sting the frog?

  25. robert 9 Says:

    wow, no I am influencing the glazers. NICE!

    well, hypothetically

    4lyfe droppin big syllables today. homie got mad skillz

  27. rayjay1122 Says:

    Yeah, I have seen that scorpion story before as it is not an original. If that is the mindset, we better not draft anyone since it is human nature to sting.

  28. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Dewey Selmon…I think the moral of the story is that it’s hard to change the nature of something. The scorpion would have been better off not stinging the frog at all…or at least waiting until they reached the other side of the pond…just like Jameis Winston would have been much better off not stealing crab legs, shouting obscenities or shooting windows full of bb’s….but somethings true nature is hard to control sometimes. Of course humans have a much greater capacity to change their nature than a scorpion, but it is a cautionary tale none the less!

    rayjay1122…of course the story is original…all stories are at one point or another!

    As for your conclusion, you are also wrong. Of course we need to draft players! The point is that character/behavior/maturity…whatever you want to call it…is something that needs to be looked at and considered when deciding who you want on your team. Im not saying every player needs to be a choir boy, and I’m not calling Jameis a rapist or criminal or anything like that. I’m saying there are “tools” a team uses to make sure their investment is a wise one…things like the Wonderlic, or talking to a player’s former coaches or teachers…these tools help in making a smart decision. If Jameis is our pick, I wish him the best and I hope his maturity/behavioral/character issues were nothing more than youthful folly! But if he continues to do stupid things in the future…as a professional athlete…and hurts his team, we will all sit back and say…”The signs were all there before….” This is why there has been, and will continue to be heavy scruting on Jameis!

    I believe marshall and David are turds

  31. Reed Says:

    No, having a great personality does not equal wins. But there is a quality that Winston and Magic and a few others share. The ability to will their team to win. I don’t know if this is what the definition of “it” is but it may be the ability to overcome the opposition and sometimes even yourself to win. This isn’t “rah rah” stuff. I admit that I haven’t see enough Mariota to tell you if he has that force of will. But I think Winston does. Aikman did. Jordan did. Drew Brees does although he is on the downside. These are all competitive guys but competitiveness is common in the NFL.. None are perfect players. But I have seen them all force their will on the everyone on the field.

  32. rayjay1122 Says:


    I am not going to debate with you. You are obviously right and I am obviously wrong. I can tell your age by your replies and comprehension of my points. You are obviously much wiser than I. You are 16 going on 60 right.

  33. Jeagan1999 Says:

    @rayjay1122…lighten up a bit. What’s wrong with debate? I can respect your opinion even if I don’t necessarily agree with it. Is it so hard for you to respect mine? Neither of us is “right” or “wrong” at this moment anyway because neither player has been chosen yet. The whole Winston/Mariota question is nothing more than Shroedinger’s Cat at this point! As for my age, let’s just say I’m over 21, but young enough that I still wouldn’t qualify for an AARP membership! But I have been around the merry go round a few times! I am fond of debate, and I’m not shy about sharing my feelings…and as an author, I enjoy telling stories! But we are both BUCS fans and we both want to see a return to glory for the team. If anything I wrote offended you, I apologize.

  34. rayjay1122 Says:


    You do not have to apologize. No harm no foul. You are right about us all being Bucs fans. I am not anti-Mariota, I just happen to believe at this point that Winston is a little better prospect. I actually am fine with accepting the opinions of those who prefer Mariota, I just get annoyed by the character assassination that get hurled at Winston more than dissecting his on the field flaws. We do not have a perfect justice system but if the guy was not found guilty then I wish people would forget about it. Now the other immature things he has done is a different matter. If people want to harp on those things then that is their prerogative. I just get tired of the rape comments.

  35. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Ray jay…well said!

  36. bbffc Says:

    The “personality” comparison being in the discussion is so ridiculous! Job interview personality, talking to elders, is not the same as game day personality with your peers, duh.

    “Winston is soon cool! Pick him! “LOL
    “Mariota puts people to sleep in the huddle”, LOL

    What a joke it is to consider a single NFL game would ever be decided by this factor, get a clue everybody, you’ve been sucked into the pre-draft fever – hype machine!

    An even bigger joke is on the field debate:

    Winston played in a pro-style offense, so he’ll be ready Day 1! LOL. Yeah right, no rookie is ever ready Day 1, let alone a 21yr old with 2 college seasons under his belt.

    Mariota played a spread offense, and runs too much, os too fast, so he’ll take years to learn to play “real” football, LOL! I don’t know if he’ll be good or not, but it will take at least 2 years to figure out if either QB will be really good.
