Jameis Winston Must Instruct

June 5th, 2015

Jameis rookieDirk Koetter came to lead Tampa Bay’s offense and didn’t bring a single player with him from his Falcons regime.

(Sorry, Joe’s not counting the reserve offensive lineman with zero career snaps who was with the Falcons last year.)

So that puts even more pressure on the starting quarterback to ensure the offense is aligned properly and everyone knows where they’re going.

In the NBC Sports video below, Brian Westbrook and Chris Canty talk about Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, and ways he can be a leadership force on the Buccaneers as a rookie.

Westbrook makes an interesting point about how, right now, guys in the Bucs’ huddle don’t know what they’re doing and will look to the quarterback for answers. If Jameis delivers, or barks them in line before they even ask, then he’ll cement himself as the quarterback-in-chief.

It’s a high pressure situation for young Jameis with a new-to-all offense, something Marcus Mariota is not dealing with in Tennessee.

    According to Mike Evans, winston and Bell are ahead of the curve when it comes to the playbook. Really, is there any question that winston will be our leader on offense?

    Vjax + winston = Robert Duvall + Sean penn in colors. “Why run when you can walk down and fck’em all”

    Yoda + Luke ?
    Obi one + Anakin
    Morpheous + Neo
    Mr Miagi + Danny
    Tyler Durden + uhm Tyler Durden?

    Idk you choose

    Why is Florio and all the national pundits totally against Winston? It just seems that there is an overwhelming majority wishing failure on “America’s QB”. Today’s world with social media has ruined this kids reputation. I can only imagine with the future of these kids getting drafted how much scrutiny each top pick will go thru moving forward. This is Football, not the presidency! Whether you inhaled or not, is not the question. As most of us know, we ALL inhaled in college! Imagine if you had this looming over you when you filled out your post college application/resume? And just maybe, What IF Winston is completely innocent of the allegations? He will NEVER get his name back, just because that’s the world we live in nowadays. Shameful…

    Like all Winners Jameis thrives ubderpressure. Yes he is still a rookie but he has performed well on big stages and under adverse conditions. Dude has ice in his veins. I’m sure Jameis will struggle but his competitive drive will overcome.

    I like the moniker “America’s QB.” The irony of JB losing his long list of peccadilloes for the re-branding is, indeed, very American.

    Colors? Man that’s a classic. Pacman was sprung off that pu$$$y! He got his feelings hurt when he caught his chick getting piped down. LOL!

    This is right up Winston’s alley. He’s used to being the QB-in-chief.

    Its funny how Florio takes the one really bad play of Winstons college carrer to form the basis of his “worries”. That one play over rides a 26-1 record, Heisman season, and Winstons obvious leadership and success on the field. It shows Florio has not spent much time actually watching Jameis play but instead he is hopeing for him to fail. Florio seems to want Winston to fail so badly he appears disappointed that Winston was working hard and felt the need to minimize the impact of Winston working his but off. Can’t wait to see Florio pouting when Winston and the Bucs become successful. I can hear it now … “yes the Bucs won, but despite his gaudy numbers, it is really not Winston, the bucs have surounded him with so much talent, anyone could win with these players”.

    U took the words right from me. One play in the national championship playoff against Oregon, must’ve forgot about that one play against Auburn in the national championship.
    I hope the Bucs come out like gangbusters, winning and smiling. They would have every right to go Beastmode Marshawn Lynch on certain media people.

    When you’re 2-14 all of the sportwriters are against you, if you’re 14-2 they all are for you. They really get paid for picking winners to win and losers to lose. All of their predictions are based on what teams did the previous year.

    Im pretty sure study, hard work, and effort does make a difference soooo…you’re an idiot

    Two things here, FIRST Florio is a lawyer and I know many (my wife and sister n law are) when have you asked your lawyer for football advice? TWO Cante just said he wanted to see hardwork, coming early and staying late from his QB. Then Florio who has NEVER played a down in the NFL (and my bet is he’s never played whatsoever) comes and says that he wants to see if that translates on the field. Are you F’ing kidding me you TOOL? So if Jameis wasn’t working hard then you would have said that without working hard he isn’t going to be successful. What a Dip-Spit! I can’t take a Lawyer serious when they attempt to talk sports, NEVER HAVE, NEVER WILL! They are taught to take the truth and twist it as much as possible to make an argument!
