Jameis Winston Manners, Respect Get Spotlight

June 5th, 2015

jameis trollingA neat and fresh story relayed by a former NFL linebacker sheds more light on “America’s Quarterback,” Jameis Winston.

Bucs fans have heard Kirk Morrison be the color analyst on several Tampa Bay games on FOX in recent years. And Morrison, based in Los Angeles, was a co-host on SiriusXM NFL Radio this afternoon.

Morrison explained how he talked to two sources who spent extensive time around Jameis during the NFL Rookie Premiere in L.A. last week. The reviews were standout, Morrison said, relaying that Jameis’ manners, charisma and humble nature were unique.

“In a room full of first-round and second-round draft picks, and all these skill position rookie players, Jameis Winston walks in the room and everybody just gravitates to him,” Morrison said. “And it’s not like he’s over there saying, ‘Hey, everybody, come follow me.’

“One guy who sat down with him said Jameis Winston made it a point [to talk to] the cameraman who set up the interview. [Jameis said,] ‘Hey, how you doing? I’m Jameis. What’s your name? Ok, nice to meet you, sir.’ Next [interview], the guy who’s setting up the telestrator, ‘What’s your name? Hey, I’m Jameis Winstson, nice to meet you, sir.'”

Joe thinks that’s very cool.

However, Joe’s not so naïve to believe good manners and caring about others will win football games. Regardless, it’s damn good to hear about Jameis, who has been berated by so many.

The story reminded Joe of one told years ago by former rockstar general manager Mark Dominik. A group of potential draft picks had visited One Buc Palace together in 2010, and Dominik noted that just one young man walked into the cafeteria kitchen and thanked the cooks and food service staff for lunch. His name was LeGarrette Blount.

The Bucs didn’t draft Blount. Nobody did after his famous college punch of an opponent. But Tampa Bay later picked Blount up off the street, in part because Dominik believed his character was a misrepresented.

Blount became one of the most successful undrafted rookies of this century.

    And now has a SB ring. Damn you Patriots….

  2. JVNootz Says:

    And then proceeded to nearly get arrested as a Buc for a fight, also was busted for pot use in Pittsburgh and will be serving a suspension. Good points, Joe (sarcasm)

  3. tmaxcon Says:

    JVNootz — pot is legal, approved for medical use or decriminalized in 26 states and various local jurisdictions throughout this great country. I’d hardly put Blount no pun intended on America’s Most Wanted. I’d rather have some of the talented supposed bad character guys back than to continue withe 4-12 and 2-14 heartless and embarrassing choir boy experiment.

    ^^^well said, again

  5. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    So the reason Dotson was not at OTAs is because he wants more money? This from one of the lineman who is responsible for one of the WORST portrayals of an OL in NFL Annals?

    See Ya Demar.

  6. Dinnerplate Nips Says:

    Just think, if it werent for Sociopath Schiano, Blount & Bennett would still be on this team..

  7. WS99 Says:

    Joe’s not so naïve to believe good manners and caring about others will win football games.

    If that were the case we’d be a dynasty by now.

  8. Buccfan37 Says:

    At least no present or former Buc has killed anyone yet as far as I know. Some other teams can’t say that. Smoking cannabis, that is not a crime to any honest unbrainwashed sane person.

  9. OAR Says:

    True, while pot is legal in some states it’s still illegal in PA and illegal in NFL rules. Rules are rules.

  10. Rrsrq Says:

    Off subject but in response to Dotson, he probably saw that Bleacher Report had him ranked as the #5 right tackle in the league. He’s not going anywhere and he knows it, you are not going to start two inexperienced book ends (Smith & Pamphile) expected to protect “Joe’s America’s Quarterback”

  11. OAR Says:

    At 45 yds/game and 1 td/3 games I’m not sure how he’s one of the most successful undrafted rookies of the century? I could see Wes Welker or Tony Romo, but not Blount. He’s lucky to have a SB ring having been picked up mid-season by the Patriots.

  12. Buc1987 Says:

    The Messiah.

  13. BucFan20 Says:

    Rules and laws are only for some people who wish to follow them. An honest person would follow them.

    Im smoking a bowl Legally as I read this article. If Weed were legal do you know how many people would stop drinking? Alcohol kills more people every yr than all other illicit drugs Combined. All you guys drinking beer by the gallon and turning your nose up to “Potheads” or whatever you want to call us are funny.

  16. Buc-A-New Says:

    Amen DB. Amen

  17. Joe Says:

    @JVNoootz – Blount was not arrested as a Buccaneer.

    @Oar — Blount rushed for 1,000 yards in a season, has been a monster in the playoffs and has a SB Ring. That makes him one of the most successful undrafted rookies of the century. Whatever anyone thinks of him, that can’t be taken away.

    This post was really about America’s Quarterback.

  18. WS99 Says:

    Amen brother.

    Joe whats the deal with Dotson?

  19. Arealbucsfan Says:

    Dotson does deserve to be paid more

  20. Ryan Baker Says:

    @OAR Legarrette Blount ran for 1007 yards and 6 TDs in just 7 starts as an undrafted rookie. SMH……….. imagine if he had been “pounding the rock” for all 16 starts.

  21. WhatDaBuc? Says:

    Well let me go ahead and make The Buc Pessimist’s day by saying even though he was the best on the line last year. Dotson has not proven he is worth more money with last years performance. Get real and your arse to practice YOU and THE REST of the OLINE need it.

  22. Howard Cosell Says:

    I’m excited about Winston but you Winston groupies are delusional.
    Again: I’m sure that Winston will be better than Glennon,
    but what if Glennon is obviously better in camp?
    The SMART thing to do would be to play the Cannon to start the season.
    If the line is a jailbreak then at least Cannon will have seen it before.
    You Winston groupies are going to cry like women if he gets hurt
    in the first game because the O-line is getting mauled.

    If Cannon struggles then we can put in your idol but at least he’ll have
    had a chance to watch at least one NFL game from the sideline before
    he gets thrown in there.

    Don’t be surprised if LL&K do exactly that.

    You Winston groupies are like Scientologists.

  23. WS99 Says:

    Howard Cosell

    You got a good point. Seems logical and I for one would not cry maybe just mope. The name calling is beneath you though.

  24. WhatDaBuc? Says:

    What exactly are the groupies of JW delusional about? Because JW is a better QB than Glennon ( and I like Glennon)? Because as of right now JW gives TB the BEST chance of winning (until he proves otherwise)? I don’t get what we are delusional about. If Glennon out performs JW in training camp then I say start JW. I wish they would have started Glennon sooner and given him a chance. But, if you think we should spend the number one overall pick and then sit him, that makes you the delusional one.

  25. Howard Cosell Says:

    Howard had some microbrews after work.

    You have to admit: There are some fans who would be mad if
    Winston doesn’t start the first game regardless of what happened
    in camp.

    What if Glennon (going into his 3rd year in the NFL) just has a
    better camp than the rookie?

    I know. I know . Love is blind. It can make you blind to reality.

    It’s al good HC I love the passion.

  27. Howard Cosell Says:

    We’re due for some good luck.
    What of Glennon plays his ass off this year?
    Having to decide between a guy coming off
    a great season and a #1 pick would be a good problem to have in 2016
    Although I know that Winston will win out.

    Put it this way: When the Cannon was 21 he was no Jamies Winston.
    Winston has a higher ceiling than Glennon. All Winston needs to do is
    keep learning so he can take it to another level. I could see him being
    a Rothlisberger type QB in playing style.

  28. The original "Kevin" Says:

    Of coarse he thanked the kitchen staff….he burned a blount and had the munchies : )

  29. Buc-A-New Says:

    OK….Im home from work now. Let the Buccaneer discussions begin now.

  30. SuperSam Says:

    Man I really miss Blount, the year we went 10-6 was awesome. It seems like a century ago.

  31. Jim Says:

    Chris Johnson does not have a ring. Although Johnson is a better back, Blount has the ring.

  32. BuccaneEric Says:

    Howard Cosell, that makes me feel better!! I thought I was the only one who “Drunk Posted” on this site! I need to stop that cause the last time I did I couldn’t believe the things I read the next morning! I didn’t even remember typing those posts! Sorry Joe, please don’t ban me!!!!!! Go Bucs!

  33. Buc-A-New Says:

    The fact that you could actually type ” I was the only one who “Drunk Posted” on this site! ” with a straight face reminds me how new you actually are.

  34. Buc-A-New Says:

    Or drunk….lol

  35. Destinjohnny Says:

    Sorta goes with the territory being raised in the south

  36. LargoBuc Says:

    Im sure Jameis has more talent than Glennon. And if Glennon was worth of leading an NFL offense, Schiano would still be our head coach. And/or we wouldn’t have finished 2-14 last year. However, I will be forever grateful for the Pittsburgh game. My dad’s side of my family is from Pittsburgh, and all I’ve heard from them growing up was how great the Pittsburgh Steelers are and how my home team Bucs are nothing blah blah blah. So yeah, that win meant a lot more to me compared to most Buc fans.

  37. BJ Rassam Says:

    As goes Winston, so go the Bucs over the next few years plus.

  38. BuccaneEric Says:

    Buc-A-New, I’ve actually been coming on JBF for a while now. I’ve only started posting comments for the last few months. I was reading the 87 and Erik Clean posts and got inspired! Lol! If that makes me “new”, then I guess I’m new.

  39. Buc1987 Says:

    Buc1987 <~~~an inspiration

  40. what? Says:

    Blount’s had a much more successful post career than #1 overall draft pick Bo Jackson.

    By any measure.

    In this case, though, we told him HE wasn’t good enough for US.
