Alterraun Verner Talks Jameis Mistakes

June 18th, 2015

alterraun verner 1001In case you missed Joe’s comprehensive notes from yesterday’s final spring practice at One Buc Palace, Jameis Winston started play against defense by tossing a ball that was nearly picked off by Alterraun Verner.

The next snap was snatched from the air by Lavonte David.

Verner talked about Jameis’ errors this morning on SiriusXM NFL Radio with hosts Ross Tucker and Booger McFarland.

The Bucs’ cornerback, a former Titans Pro Bowler, likes what he’s seeing after the errors.

“I see a lot of poise and confidence in him. You can tell that he progresses. When he makes a mistake, he beats himself up about it and, you know, learns from it and talks to the OC, to the players,” Verner said. “And you can just tell his enthusiasm and his charisma, everybody gets fueled by that.

“Now has he made mistakes? Has he thrown some bad passes? Yes. He has. But I mean what quarterback wouldn’t do that. I’m pretty sure Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers throw those bad passes every once in a while, too. But I see him work, and you can just tell in his work ethic that he’s trying to get better and he wants to be the best. And that’s why I see a lot of good qualities coming to him.”

Yes, it’s yet another Bucs veteran raving about America’s Quarterback, and the way he works and inspires.

Hopefully, Jameis can inspire the five guys blocking in front of him to care about his health more than they did Josh McCown’s.

    Yeah but has he fumbled the ball, picked it up and then thrown a pick?

  2. Hawk Says:

    Come on, Buccfan37, he’s just a rookie. Players need years to work up to that level of play. :^)

    The other cool question for Verner would be to ask him how the Cannon (aka Mikey Ice) is looking in Koetter’s tailor made system.

    Hawk, I think Buccfan37 was referring to McCown….Though I root for the Bucs
    always, and therefore, Winston, I’m still not yet convinced that the Bucs chose the right QB. It will be interesting to see which QB proves to be the best.

  5. James Walker Says:

    Brad Johnson completed a pass to himself for a touchdown. Top that Brady!

  6. Ray Rice Says:

    The Messiah doesn’t make mistakes. He just gives others a chance.

  9. Hawk Says:

    @ Bucballya
    I believe you misunderstood my post. It was, in deed, a response to Buccfann37’s reference to a McCown play. I would hope that the sarcasm did not fly over everyone’s head.

    Bucfan37 I was there at that game. Right in front of me!!! Our whole section collectively wanted to throw up!!!

  11. Espo Says:


    Those of us who can read understood it. It was funny.

  12. I know why Says:

    I love Americas Most Wanted…..i mean Americas quarterback.

  13. LakelandBuc Says:

    Doug Williams threw a touchdown pass after he had slipped and fell.He threw it while sitting on his butt.

    The Bucs finally got a real QB,…thats all that matters. Being part of the NFC south…all the other teams have a QB, now we do too. F*ck a Freeman, F*ck McClown and F*ck giraffe boy. Time to start contending.
