Bucs Sold Loads Of Winston No. 3 Jerseys

May 1st, 2015

cashAt Joe’s buzzing draft party at Pete & Shorty’s last night, one great Bucs fan arrived there after being at the Raymond James Stadium bash.

And he shared a very interesting nugget.

This cool dude told Joe how the gear concession areas at the stadium party were selling Winston jerseys — complete with Winston’s chosen No. 3 — as fast as lightning once he was drafted.

One after another, fans were paying top dollar for Winston jerseys and throwing around credit cards like Joe pounds beers.

Always skeptical, Joe went to Buccaneers.com to look at the pictures of the official Bucs party. Sure enough, Joe saw the photo below.

Yes, there is major buzz across the Bay area. The Bucs knew Winston was there man and had jerseys ready by the truckload. The perceived savior is here.

    Bucs fan shop STILL has 27 unique styles of #5 Freeman jerseys for sale. Makes me think JW being #5 was a highly suggested business decision, lest all #5s would be rendered useless & burned.

  2. Kramden Says:

    *Dammit – JW being #3 I meant, of course.

  3. labuc Says:

    I got one of the last ones

  4. nate Says:

    welcome, #jameischrist. cannot wait for you to begin our franchise’s resurrection.


  6. Andrew 1 Says:

    I do apologize for rubbing it in earlier about how wrong some of you guys were about the pick. Someone made a comment about how that’s not going to help anything by rubbing it in, and they were absolutely right. So… supersam, phillip, mike, eric, and port richey george welcome aboard. I know that we didnt pick the guy that you wanted, but hopefully you’ll still be able to root for the guy that we picked.

    I’ll be ordering mine tomorrow!

  8. DallasBuc Says:

    Bucs fans, Tampa in general needs a winner bad. How about a product they can be proud of on Sundays? I really hope Winston is magic in the pros early like he was in college. I believe one player can make a difference.

  9. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Sorry, but I just cannot wear those monstrosities. WTF were the Glazers thinking? Just when I start to warm up to the new unis because of a cool pic of Mike Evans or LVD, I see a pic of the old unis and wonder how much MDMA the Glazers must’ve been taking when they signed off on these things.

    Of course, I can always get a throwback Winston jersey. Sorry for the rant, but that’s just how I feel.

    The hat advertised for the draft with the Tampa Skyline under the brim looks awesome though.

  10. Pickgrin Says:

    Preach it Plank.

    The new Jerseys are hideous looking. Whoever signed off on them and decided to release them as the new design and designate them as the official Bucs uniform without getting feedback first needs to have their head examined. Call them Burger King uniforms or XFL style uniforms or Tron outfits or clock radio inspired – and you would be right on all accounts.

    Glazers need to admit what a horrible mistake the new uniform design is – and go back to the previous design or come up with something much better than these stupid looking clown suits. At the very least change the look of the numbers which is the worst part of the whole design.

    I refuse to buy any jersey in the new design. If a Winston jersey does not become available in creamsickle or old style red and pewter – then I guess I won’t be getting one.

  11. Jerry Says:

    How can you all say the “Bucs got this one right?” Winston hasn’t even played a down yet.

    If he starts throwing picks like he did at FSU, he’s not going to last very long in this league.

  12. tortured orlando bucs fan Says:

    Diehard bucs fan but I will never understand why anyone would want to wear a Jersey(even though tons of people do and I’m in the huge minority here of football fans). They fit terribly, are uncomfortable, look really stupid unless you have pads on, and MOST of all, you are wearing another grown man’s name on your back. The Seattle 12 man or custom ones are okay I guess if I HAD to wear one, but I always thought it was really weird a grown man would want to wear another grown man’s name on their back; not to mention there is a good chance that grown man who you don’t know or never met might eventually be traded to a rival team or be a bust. Sadly 8ish years ago I remember at the last playoff game we lost to the giants my ex showed up to my place before the game with a bucs Jersey, I put it on 2 seconds to appease her and it has been sitting in my closet ever since.

    Don’t get me wrong I have a couple bucs t shirts and a hat…but I will never understand the appeal of a Jersey.

  13. Bill Says:

    Does that conclude your fashion advice?

  14. 77bassguitarist Says:

    Joe so what number is he wearing? 3 or 5?

  15. MadMax Says:

    Im not a fan of the new jerseys either….probably wont be buying one. Still have my Lynch, Barber, Brooks, Sapp jerseys though.

  16. FortMyersDave Says:

    I’m with MadMax, not a big fan of the new jerseys either. The numerals remind me of the numbers you’d see in old sci fi movies from the ’70s like Logan’s Run or Westworld. I was happy with the design they came out with in ’97 when they sent Bucco Bruce into retirement and still own a Brooks, Lynch, Allstott and Clayton jersey of the classic pewter and black… Yeah that Clayton one I kept as a reminder not to waste money on unproven first rounders though it looked like a sharp investment after season 1… And 77bassguitarist: I hope he is #3 as #5 still has the stink of Josh F flaming out all over it but your guess is as good as mine, Joe put #3 in his article lead so I’ll go with that unless he corrects us……

  17. Max Says:

    As far as “wearing another mans name on your back”, who really thinks that deeply about a simple showing of support via a jersey? Btw, I have. 2 jerseys I wear from time to time…an old school Purdue -Alstott jersey (sure miss the A train!) and a Pat Tillman cards jersey not because I’m a Cards fan, I’m all Bucs, but Tillman is an icon in my opinion and a true great American. Just my 2cents regarding the whole jersey comment from Tortured Orlando fan

  18. Strider #FamousJameis Says:

    Get paid today going to buy mine

  19. BucFanForever Says:

    It is because Bucs who are great have threes on their jerseys. McCoy, Jackson, Evans, and now Winston. Lavonte David missed the message, which is why he gets snubbed from the pro-bowl. He should have been #53.

  20. Clodhopper Says:

    Mariota fans wanted the next Russel Wilson. Winston wearing #3 close enough?

  21. Phil Says:

    Why wouldn’t Jameis want #3. That was Dale Earnhardt’s number.

  22. BucTrooper Says:

    I can’t but that jersey. It’s just hideous.

  23. bucs4lyfe Says:

    if you see Winston competing for the starting job in training camp, ticket sales are going up, they are already on the rise….Go Bucs it’s time!!!!!

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

    tortured orlando bucs fan. I to reside in Orlando and although our record abysmal last season the one thing all my partners that were raggin on me not trying to hear my tanking for Jamies theory,they all stated man y’all got some nice jerseys. Exact words were y’all suck but got some nice jerseys. I love’em,can’t wait to dawn my new WINSton top. You’ll see me around blue truck,two Buccs flags.

  25. pick6 Says:

    they’re hideous, but if they ever lift a lombardi wearing those monstrosities they’ll be more beautiful to me than a work of fine art. my kids are 1 and 2, for better or worse this is the style of jersey they will grow up in, so i’m hoping they grow on me with some winning. i’m getting my winston jersey at his preseason debut, the first time i see him play live. the wife is all in too

  26. tortured orlando bucs fan Says:

    Heh sorry drunk late night post on the jerseys, nothing against people who wear them as I have a lot of friends that do, just something il never understand, like people who think “this dubstep music sounds really good, this and electro is soo much better than trance and tech-house” and “mayo is delicious on my sandwich”…and for the other Orlando fan hopefully winston can change a pathetic fact about Orlando….as someone who loves downtown in close proximity of my towns best Sunday funday bars, I can walk 3 minutes down the street to a dedicated packers bar and about 5-7 to a dedicated Steelers bar but NOT ONE bucs bar…in the center of our states second largest metro area (that happens to be technically a bucs market) so hopefully winston brings out my city’s fairweather pride!

  27. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Just curious, why did he switch numbers?

  28. Dewey Selmon Says:

    He choose #3 cause Jameis Christ rose on the 3rd day.

  29. Phillip Says:


    Probably because of JF5 and how his split with the Bucs was a nasty and nationally televised one lol

    @Andrew 1

    Dude you are a complete moron.. You included me into a group of people who don’t like him for whatever reasons(most likely off the field).. NEVER ONCE did I say his off the field issues were the reason I don’t want him here.. It was his on the field play(constant comparisons I made were poor man Big Ben vs a poor man Russell Wilson) and the fact that I believe Mariota can be better than him if he were given the same opportunity as Jameis has currently. That’s it.

    I mentioned I WAS RIGHT last night about Mel Kiper saying Jameis had SEVEN off the field incidents. I got harassed for proof when I first mentioned that damn near 2 months ago and feel vindicated that he said it during the damn draft.

    Rubbing in that what Jameis was the OBVIOUS choice? He was the obvious choice even during the season as long as he didn’t screw up again! Sorry for all the people claiming they had called it right when the season was over.. Big deal how about when we put Josh McCown back into the starting lineup? Ya I’m raising my damn hand right now(and no I didn’t post it on here because I don’t spend every waking moment on JBF). The Bucs pulled the same move the Colts did because they saw their prize and went after it no matter what the cost. Did I want the Bucs to draft Mariota? Yes. Did I think the Bucs would draft Mariota? No.

    Kinda like tomorrow night.. Do I want Pac-Man to beat the holy hell out of Mayweather? You damn right I do. Do I think it’s gonna happen? No I don’t.

    Get your head out of your a$$ kid
