Chemistry Lessons

May 26th, 2015


Today is a massive day at One Buc Palace.

In many ways, it’ll be the first real practice for Jameis Winston. It’s too bad media won’t be able to watch and hype the glory of America’s Quarterback.

Most NFL teams are launching their “OTA” sessions today, which means players are in helmets and allowed to play 7-on-7 and 11-on-11, etc., against each other without hitting. Very little of this is real football, but receivers flanked by cornerbacks, and quarterbacks throwing balls on time and in rhythm, are as close as it gets.

Jameis will begin to build critical chemistry with Vincent Jackson and Mike “Phi Slama” Evans, and Austin Seferian-Jenkins, if he can stay healthy.

There will be plenty of other targets looking for first-team work, such as Louis Murphy, Robert Herron and rookies Kenny Bell and Kaelin Clay.

Joe’s been told the goal is to give Jameis as much work as possible. So Joe expects Jameis to throw to everyone. Mike Glennon and Seth Lobato will clean up what’s left.

It’s hard for a QB, especially a rookie, to not have a favorite target. Jameis was guilty of that with Rashad Greene at Florida State. Chucky had fun point that out to young Jameis repeatedly during “Gruden’s QB Camp.”

Joe looks forward to being out there with other media on Thursday. Perhaps Jameis will have a favorite by then.

    his favorite will be the one with the crab leg tied around his neck.

  2. DFW Bucs Fan Says:

    Once again as everyone has said if you’re not a fan find another site.

  3. Horice Says:

    Immaturity is not earned with age ROBERT! If we could only get a glimpse of your day to day or past actions. My bet is you’ll make Jameis seem like the Pope! Or your just an attention WHORE! SMDH!

  4. unbelievable Says:

    Let’s hope he can develop really good chemistry with at least 3 of these guys. The last thing we want is him locking on to 1 receiver every game.

    We all know that in the classroom JW will always be able to identify the correct open guy, let’s hope it translates on to the field, and it all clicks at game speed.

  5. robert 9 Says:

    dang yall. looks like someone has a crab leg or two in the wrong hole.

    sheez. get a sense of humor.

  6. Joe Says:


    “The King of Turds,” Jerramy Stevens, didn’t get hate from so-called Bucs fans like Jameis does. Joe’s going to guess these same folks are going to be miserable for the next few years.

  7. Johnny Says:

    white/hispanics want jameis to bust so bad because he is BLACK. they were wrong about cam, wrong about briudgewater, and now with all the good news coming out of rookie ota’s about jameis winston.. they are afraid of the black qb takeover

  8. Big Marlon B Says:

    @ robert 9

    it really isn’t about (not) having a sense of humor, that joke has been beaten to death. it’s just lame and unoriginal at this point. try a little harder and you might get a decent reaction.

  9. Joe Says:

    white/hispanics want jameis to bust so bad because he is BLACK.

    That’s a bit of a reach. There is an element of that, yes, but not even close to being absolute. That’s why you always see the non-fans make references to bad black quarterbacks. smh

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

    Me personally I’m not mad at you at all robert9. It’s easy to take shots right now,WINSton hasn’t taken a real game snap as of yet. But win the wins start to pile up and you’re still hatin on the kid even you must admit you’re gonna sound really stupid man.

  11. meatloph Says:

    Johnny you sound like the racist to me buddy. I’m white and I’m all for jameis, check your facts before you just start throwing out bigotry.

  12. Cesar Says:

    “white/hispanics want jameis to bust so bad because he is BLACK.”

    Johnny, what are you talking about it, I’m Mexican, family and friends can’t hardly wait to see Jameis playing. Many Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Colombians, etc were waiting for the me messiah “Jamies”

  13. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    robert 9, the problem was it just wasn’t funny….I mean a crab leg joke? Come one

    PFT Commenter wrote before the draft:

    If you put a gun to my head and told me I had to draft either Mariota or Jameis, first I’d tell Jameis to put the gun down

    Hilarious. Not even close to the truth because that’s not what or who Jameis is…but it was hilarious and I didn’t find myself upset by it at all

  14. LakelandBuc Says:

    Jameis will do good this year,he will not light up the field like Dan Marino but he will develop as he plays.

  15. JMan Says:

    Actually Johnny,

    I wanted Teddy here even though the jury is still out on him and Cam is the middle of the road QB

  16. robert 9 Says:

    yeah well, my wife doesn’t think farting under the covers is funny either. but I still crack myself up.

  17. J Says:

    Really Robert? I would have thought your hand would love that…

  18. THETRUTH Says:

    Im Hispanic and pulling for Jamies and excited about what he brings, as for CAM i can’t stand a guy who is losing by 30 points and celebrating a 1st down or a touchdown and losing still by 23.. Think Jamies will be better QB than cam if he has a line to give him a little time.

    Johnny, you make yourself look like a white man hater saying that, guess you would have not picked marriota with the 2nd pick cause he is white.. get over it …

    if jamies would have not have made his mistakes people would be more supportive as was the FSU mostly white stadium on Saturdays.

    he has been clean of dumbness all break lets hope he learned and makes better decisions in future..

  19. Waterboy Says:

    Only thing I really care about regarding OTAS is that there were no major injuries to report once it’s over.

  20. Bucfansinz1986 Says:

    Man, this site sure isn’t friendly to those of us who are not Infamous fans (including Joe). “Don’t like our opinion? Then go away!!” Sadly laughable. America’s quarterback=The Great Divider. Btw, nobody….nooo body…outside of this site would ever refer to Infamous as “America’s quarterback”….now, they might use some other terms….

  21. robert 9 Says:

    go away 86, your clearly either a hispanic or white male and threatened by the black QB takeover.


  22. WS99 Says:

    R9 lmao you stupid bro.

  23. WalkdaPlank Says:

    “It’s too bad media won’t be able to watch and hype the glory of America’s Quarterback.”

    JOE! Did you not learn anything from your last obsessive mancrush, Johnny Rehab? The media wouldn’t shut the hell up about him, and he wasn’t even a freaking starting quarterback. I’d say half the hate Johnny gets is from the media blowing everything he does out of proportion (why do you think people here hate him, Joe, hmmmm?). The other half comes from him being a narcissistic, alcoholic prick.

    Now Jameis is not that, but America does view him as a thug, and that’s already enough to bring hate his way, imagine the mainstream media blowing up about Jameis like you do, it would be disaster. The Bucs don’t need that negativity, even if Jameis is used to it, the rest of the team is not. Just keep a low profile and let Jameis do what he does best, win.

    Every post from them makes me smile. Every. Single. One.

  25. Stewart in Texas Says:

    I remember all the hatred and ugliness that Doug Williams got. But this white boy was standing on the hood of his car watching practice over the fence and hearing him yell “ROWDY, ROWDY” before the snap. He was OUR quarterback. I have supported them all, black, white, Samoan and color-blind. True fans do.

  26. mac Says:


    Robert9 is cracking me up… He has some of you guys in a tizzy…

    I think its going to be a very long season if we are still letting “crab leg” comments/jokes get to us…

    Winston is a good kid with great talent… If he wins football games all this silly crap will disappear…

  27. Idontwannahearitanymore Says:

    his favorite will be the one with the crab leg tied around his neck.

    Robert9 – out trolling again, I see. What a dork!.

  28. Aceofaerospace Says:

    To those who keep bringing up Winston’s past, give it a rest. He’s not going to be un-drafted. He’s our quarterback. I want nothing but success for him. His success equals my football happiness. A lot of very smart men/women with a whole lot of money and a whole lot invested in him tried hard to find reasons not to draft him. They didn’t find anything. The last thing I want right now is to be able to say “I told you so”. The moment Goodell called his name, “I” was done with his past. Move on. Go Bucs!

  29. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Mac I don’t think robert9 bothers anyone anymore. His jokes bother people because they are lame as hell. Now if he had made the joke above about putting the gun down that vas quoted above I would have said kudos. However, Bobby is not bright and has never had a clever post. NEVER!

  30. krav_muse Says:

    Race card is silly, fsu has ridiculous redneck fan base so do the bucs, and most love Jameis, most love Dungy and Lovie, Freeman was givin a shot though he didnt deserve it coming out of college, turned us around then screwed the pooch, this guy may be Byron Leftwich but we all hope not, if he blows it wont be cause he is black, hell it may not even be his fault if he does, Florida is a pretty chill accepting state, lots of nationalities and background here, take your race baiting else where

  31. Sick of the Wait Says:


    Agreed. I dont care any more what people are saying or who they attack as long as it is entertaining. Hey, its still a long way to the start of the season and everybody can use a laugh now and then.

    But, R9 is a one trick pony. If he actually made me crack up with one of his attempts at humor, I would give him props. Im just not sure he has the mental fire power. As exampled by his last “fart” joke post.

  32. lurker Says:

    wild bill belichick likes to limit the media. so you’re right… “It’s too bad media won’t be able to watch and hype the glory of America’s Quarterback.” Tom Brady will not be accessible.

  33. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo doesn’t know what a white/hispanic is…..Pablo has seen all kinds of hispanics in Pablo’s many years….but never a white one.”

    Pull up your pants and get a job home boy.

    Uhhh, this was posted by the same guy on the day of the draft:

    “robert 9 Says:
    April 30th, 2015 at 1:54 pm

    we can bring up the consistent degradation of white females by black males for conquest, making up for slavery??”

    So, yeah, this is not “race baiting”.

  36. Yeah you Says:

    So what LW, pretty accurate, wake up

  37. Love and Warrick Dunn Says:

    “Yeah you Says:

    So what LW, pretty accurate, wake up”

    Nothing is stopping either of you from grabbing your pointy hats and heading to the local klan rally. Fly your flag, whatever it is. But, considering the NFL is 68% African-American, it’s funny to see your kind congregate here. But, hey, it’s hard to understand slackjaw logic.

  38. BuccaneEric Says:

    I love joe!!!!

  39. BuccaneEric Says:

    Joe, I guess I’m one of the bad guys who doesn’t lick the taco of the Winston lover. I would but it might be misconstrued as being gay and I love the hot dog anyway!!! I will fill you all with my seed and my waste!!!!! SHIVA!!!!!!!

  40. David Says:

    Wtf are u talking about Eric. I wrote this before. I don’t think it’s as simple as black or white, racism or race baiting. You know I find it funny how black people sometimes throw out the “it’s because he’s black card” sometimes instead of us sticking together and helping a brotha out with good advice like “pull up your pants, act/talk like u have some sense”! We need to be more supportive as a community. And I also find it funny how white people say “race has nothing to do with anything, racism is dead, or your race baiting”. I mean c’mon, just cause you might not be racist does not mean it doesn’t exist. If u took your blinders off u would see alot of treatment towards him has had racist under tones. Turning a blind eye or acting like sum 1 is making it up does not make it less true. And for Asians and Hispanics, I have no idea why u guys hate black people. Maybe I can get enlightened. And Robert9..nevermind.

  41. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Amazing how a story about OTA’s somehow takes a turn to a talk about race. Absolutely amd completely irrelevant to the conversation, and you wonder why racism is still as strongas ever, because idiots go around throwing the race card where it doesn’t belong.

    Idgaf if our QB is black, white, yellow, blue, purple, or orange. If he can play, he can stay.

  42. David Says:

    Walkdaplank…part of what u said justifies my comment. So u mean to tell me that racism will “go away” if people don’t talk about it or point it out if they feel discriminated against? C’mon man u have to be more aware than that. Like I said before, I when it’s clearly not warranted, but turning your head from it when u see postings by people who say racist things are just as bad as the race baiting.
