Winston Explains “No. 3”

May 1st, 2015


Legions of Bucs fans are wondering why Jameis Winston changed his number, away from his trademark No. 5 at Florida State University.

Winston will wear No. 3 for Tampa Bay.

Today at One Buc Palace, explained No. 3 was his first number in youth football and he was looking for a fresh start in the NFL.

Winston also joked that 3+5=8, and No. 8 was on the back of his high school jersey. Then he advised media that 5-3=2, for those who were unaware.

    I’m wondering how many other teams, if any, Jameis had gear ready for at his house…..or if it was only TB gear

    OK 87 hold onto your hat..Tmaxx sit down.

    I will say Winston did very well in his press conference. Very Humble. I hope this is what is to come from him.

    Good to hear. I think (most) people will warm up to him during the season after watching game pressers. He’s actually quite likable.

    Bye George can’t say I’m sorry to see you go.

  14. BucinNC Says:

    He is passionate about his craft and is all in with the team/organization that he represents. He will be the biggest fan of the Tampa bay buccaneers and will bring that fire that we have so desperately lacked.

    your the man… welcome!!! I’ll admit I am wrong about Lovie he is makes some good decisions between now and mid season. This was a good first step towards me thinking he is learning.

    Erik Clean

    I’ll say this I have had my share of childish moments with Clean Erik but you handled yourself with class last night. sir. I don’t agree with your titan or should I say mariota fascination but hell I still think Kristy McNichol is hot. That’s give the age away for sure. Enjoy the titans sir!

    You almost convinced me until the barry carpool then I knew for sure it was winston.

    i am out of the country and trying to connect via proxy server is frustrating at times.

    I know winston explained the 3 but any chance his dad being a bucs fan hated freeman and nixed the 5 …. just a thought

  17. pick6 Says:

    i can’t believe he picked #3. so immature. what a terrible human being he is.

  18. BuccaneEric Says:

    Port Richey George, sorry to hear that. I was gonna be a smart a$$, but your free to do what you want. Hope you come back though. GO BUCS!

    A new Era has begun… So ready for this change. I needed a reason to fly the flag. Finally something good happens at Ray Jay. Bring on mini camp!

    I haven’t been posting on here long, but I’ve been reading the comments for a while. I’ve been on record for being Pro-Winston and OK with Mariota. I must admit I thought the anti Winston crowd would cry a lot and talk $hit. I’m glad that hasn’t been the case and if the pick was Marcus I would give the same respect. I can tell the people on here who are real BUCS fans no matter what. 87, Erik, tmaxcon, Atrain, TBBucFan, Love and Warrick! I always look to your guys posts for REAL INFO! I’m missing a few I’m sure and I’m sorry!!! Lol can’t wait for tonight!!! GO BUCS!!

    I second that notion Buccaneeric.

  22. Eric Says:

    The important numbers are

    Winston 25 million
    Haters 0

    Go Bucs

    So far Jameis is saying all the right things. He has really seemed humbled by being chosen by the team I believe he really wanted to play for as evidenced by his signing so quickly. I really hope this kid continues to mature as his talent is undeniably high. My biggest concerns with him were maturity and he has shown signs that he has indeed matured. No doubt my preference was Mariota , but now that he is our guy I hope he helpshand Mariota his first regular season loss in the NFL. GO BUCS!!
