“He Knows How To Talk Already”

June 17th, 2015

Jameis rookieSince the Bucs are no longer trotting out the likes of Josh McCown and trying to sell innocent Bucs fans on the notion that a never-has-been can become a playoff quarterback, NFL Network is paying attention to Tampa Bay again.

It has a lot to do with Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, being on the roster.

NFL Network had a crew at Bucs minicamp yesterday, and Jeff Darlington got a little private time with Jameis.

Jameis smiled and talked about how great it is to play football, and Jameis said how happy he is to be playing with the second team and earning a job.

Darlington couldn’t seem to ignore the silliness of it all, remarking about Jameis, “He knows how to talk already.” And Darlington finished the interview calling Jameis a “star.”

Yeah, it’s June — but there’s no shortage of NFL types wondering why Lovie Smith thinks Jameis shouldn’t be capitalizing on every possible opportunity to mesh with Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans.

    Am I the only one having trouble getting pages to load?

    Joe, any technical issues?

    I remember waaaayyy back in 2014 when you were telling us how good Josh McCown looked…when players were pretending to play football in gym shorts and t-shirts…and sans a defensive rush.

    Maybe you hypocrisy peddlers don’t remember?

    I do.

    In reality, Josh McCown will likely have a better season than St Fameis, for the simple reason that the Browns have a better offensive line.

    Not that i dont like Jameis, but of course they call him a star in June. How the hell do you think they get their numbers up?

    the difference between mccown is that he has been a bottom feeder (football-wise, not human being-wise) for 14 years, where as JW has been an elite performer wherever he has gone to date. believing that mccown was suddenly a different guy because he had a run of 3 good games and a couple okay games at age 35 was folly.

    Bring it!!!! all who keep doubting Jameis. Yes he has yet to play an NFL game but the preparation he puts in since the days of him playing little league isn’t going away. You guys act like Jameis will just forget everything he has ever learned. Just shows how much some of you commentators don’t know about football. he will struggle his first year but when all is said and done, he will be a Pro Bowl QB in coming years!!!

    Really? They’ve had a better offensive line for the past 5 years, but that hasn’t help any. Plus the fact that they have no running backs or WR’s. lol
