People Need To Calm Down

June 1st, 2015
"America's Quarterback" has a life outside of football.

“America’s Quarterback” has a life outside of football.

Joe just cannot believe how nuts some Bucs fans are. They whine all the time how the likes of BSPN won’t give the Bucs any attention — frankly, teams that finish 2-14 should get zero national attention other than to be mocked on a daily basis — and once the team gets a superstar and a national celebrity, all of a sudden it is horrible and the guy should be locked in Lovie’s Chicago basement until training camp.

Calm down!

Joe’s good friends over at unearthed a video of “America’s Quarterback,” Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, escorting a lovely lass to her car at a Los Angeles hotspot. Jameis even had the nerve to open the door for the lady, as all gentlemen should.

All of a sudden, too many Bucs fans are ready to jump off a bridge as a result.

What’s the matter with you people? So Jameis isn’t allowed to go out at night? Or is it he shouldn’t be seen with a girl? It’s OK for Jameis to hang with Magic Johnson, David Letterman, Dick Vitale, but God forbid he escorts a lovely lass to her car.

Grow up.

No, Joe has no idea who this chick is, never heard of her before, and Joe doesn’t care what she does for a living. This nonsense that a player cannot go out and enjoy himself on his own time is outrageous. It’s not like Jameis was hammered and had to be dragged out of a bar or was fighting with someone. He escorted a lady to her ride and opened the door for her.

The nerve!

For those who believe NFL players should be monks, chained to their playbook and locked in a prison is beyond the pale.

And buckle up folks, if you don’t like “America’s Quarterback” getting attention, you are going to have a rough few years ahead of you.

Now try to tell Joe what is so heinous about this video? Joe is starting to think people have such empty lives, they want everyone else to be home-bound with their mother.

  3. The Buc Realist Says:

    To be fair, Joe had no problem with Johnny Football going nuts in Vegas!

  4. BucWild007 Says:

    He has a girlfriend or fiance right? She can’t be happy about this video…

  5. bo Says:

    This is a non-story and shouldn’t even be acknowledged by Joe.

  6. Joe Says:

    “Non-story?” You haven’t seen Joe’s Twitter mentions, have you? 🙂

  7. mike m Says:

    Doesn’t he have a girlfriend?

  8. Leonard Scarnesi Says:

    Wow. This was a great read JOE. What would we do without several column inches of…of…whatever this should be called. But it was better than reading about barbeque and milk cartons and ghosts and mobs and all of that other nonsense JOE thinks readers are interested in.

  9. Luther Says:

    I read this on Twitter and the first thing that came to me was the girlfriend. Innocent or not, he’s got some ‘splainin’ to do.

  10. Joe Says:

    The “girlfriend” has been Jameis’ go-to girl since high school. Apparently, it is an open relationship. Jameis would hardly be the only NFL QB to have such a deal with a girl.

  11. mike Says:

    Wake me up when training camp starts

  12. bucbucbuc Says:

    I’m a huge Winston supporter, and he’s not really doing anything wrong in this video. That being said, given that he has a girlfriend and is a high-profile athlete (with a checkered past), it worries me that he’s being caught in situations like this. He’s got to learn to avoid them completely to prevent any kind of speculation.

  13. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    No problem for Jameis going forward…

    !. Obtain a notarized waiver granting consensual $ex.
    2. Wear a body-cam
    3. Have witnesses tape the encounter
    4. Post-consenual $ex waiver.
    5. Joe’s OK

    THis should cover the bases so Jameis can enjoy a normal life….

    “America’s Don’t Open The Door For Me Chick”

  14. Strider #FamousJameis Says:

    I just want Jameis to get married have like 5 kids and be forced to stay grown up

  15. bo Says:

    Should be titled “SuperJameis Defends Woman From Paparazzi”

  16. INDYbucsfan Says:

    Honestly the girl in the video doesn’t seem to enjoy winstons company very much. Seems like she just wants him to leave her alone.

  17. Pawel Says:

    He’s trying to show he respects women.

  18. robert 9 Says:

    lol. he opened the door. after she told him to leave her alone. “I don’t want you to open the door”

    she was about to start running. just glad people were there.

    apparently he still does know the meaning of no.

  19. Bucsfanman Says:

    Geez, really?! Who cares?!

  20. Ray Rice Says:


    Looks to me like Draya was killing his a$$ off! She will come running back once he starts lighting up the scoreboards and piling W’s. Especially when she figures out who he is. Draya is a THOT. She’s well known throughout the hip hop community. Plus she is Orlando Scandricks ex chick. She’s fine though. I’ll knock the dust off that twizzzzat! #FUKMODERATION

  21. drdneast Says:

    We don’t need a “celebrity” as a QB, we need a pro football player.
    Joe’s favorite QB, Johnny Manzell is a celebrity.
    I think Winston considers himself a football player, not a celebrity, or at least I hope he does.
    I see no problem with Jameis liking girls, especially if they are sober. Got to do something with all that magic testosterone.

  22. BucGator Says:

    Yea his girl is not going to like this and he does look a little stalkerish in this video. The girl in the video is all about drama so she may have been acting disinterested to keep the press off her.

  23. robert 9 Says:

    “he does look a little stalkerish in this video.”

    ya think???

    she probably wanted to get the hell out of there before the drink he gave her kicked in!

  24. Hawk Says:

    Doesn’t she look a lot like one of girls that Warren Sapp was trying to ‘help’?
    Just kidding folks!

  25. Anthony Says:

    [Since Joe is such a slob, no need to comment here, right? Always remember who has control of the magic button around here. — Joe]

  26. Buc Neckid Says:

    At Least the Video does not say he was assaulting her.
    It is what it is with no underlying meaning.
    The Stalkerazzi is just looking for him to slip up and he hasn’t.
    He has been a Pro since becoming a Pro
    and even since the Sh!t hit the fan
    He has done nothing wrong since
    and this comes from somebody waiting for something bad from him
    (Waiting i say , NOT HOPING)
    Give the Kid a break
    He is paying for his mistakes
    Let it Go

  27. bucs4lyfe Says:

    it’s good to be the man

  28. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    if only he showed more class, like this guy

  29. Joe Says:


    Joe doesn’t have subscribers, A-hole. Good to know you have such a good grasp on vocabulary.

    Speaking of growing up, hit the books so you have a grasp on sixth grade English.

  30. Supersam Says:

    [Might not want to go there again. – Joe]

  31. bucs4lyfe Says:

    dam somebody hate their life

  32. Supersam Says:

    Just can’t keep his hand out of the cookie jar

  33. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Jesus, what’s next? A video of Jameis in the alcohol isle at Walmart or something? How about getting free food at Burger King? All Jameis has to do is wear his Bucs uniform and people will think he is an employee.

  34. Supersam Says:

    No means no Jameis!!!! Walk away!!!

  35. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    What a shocker, Robert 9 is offended by something Jameis did. He is in such denial about his obsession with everything Jameis does, even though it’s as plain as day to the rest of us.

    Seriously people, this is literally the dumbest thing in the entire world. What exactly happened in this video to get anyone worked up about anything? Some girl who thinks she’s famous got her car door opened by Jameis Winston, and then drove off. Am I missing something? Pretty safe to say that’s where her relationship with Jameis ended. And if not, who the hell cares? Good for both of them. Why would anyone here care about his situation with his girlfriend? That’s their business. All that matters is that (so far) he’s been everything we could want from our franchise QB. His personal life is his business, not yours.

  36. robert 9 Says:

    a real man would have told her where to take that snotty attitude if she just all of a sudden did a 180 for the cameras on him

    but then again, a normal guy would not have stalked her in the 1st place.

    not james angry pirate winston, he just doesn’t take no for an answer. and that reporter was hitting on gronk, but nice try.

  37. Supersam Says:

    It’s been what a month? Wow. I can’t believe this guy. And to think we could’ve had Mariota. Good choice Lovie and Licht. Bravo

  38. robert 9 Says:

    now hawaiian, fetch my paper and slippers.

  39. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    “No means no Jameis!!!! Walk away!!!”


    Here’s another closet Jameis lover. Sorry to forget about you Supersam. Keep checking for that blow up Jameis doll. I’m sure you’ll be able to get one soon.

    He opened a door for her and said “have a good night”. Oh, the nerve! Lock him up! If you watch the video, he had already opened the door for her when she said not to. Would you have preferred he slammed it on her?

  40. Supersam Says:

    [Anyone accusing a Bucs player of being a serial felon losses the privledge of commenting on this site. Joe warned you already. — Joe]

  41. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    “a real man would have told her where to take that snotty attitude if she just all of a sudden did a 180 for the cameras on him

    but then again, a normal guy would not have stalked her in the 1st place.”


    First of all, since when does being a real man entail telling some girl off? I can only imagine the wad your panties would have been in had he done just that.

    Why the assumption he’s stalking her? Were you there with them that night? Where were they? Who else was with them? You don’t know a damn thing (as usual), but you are so quick to judge. What kind of a person are you to judge another man, especially one you don’t even know. Who the hell are you? You’re a nobody, that’s who.

  42. WalkdaPlank Says:

    The same people making a fuss about this are probably the same one’s who blame Mike Williams for getting stabbed. How dare he get stabbed! How dare he open that door! I’m surprised we haven’t had a feminist in here saying “she didn’t need a man to open that door!”

    People these days.

  43. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    “Americas quarterback? Ha! Americas Sexual predator maybe. Now Marcus Mariota, that is a guy America loves. Wish he was our quarterback.”


    Hell, that’s an easy fix. Take your Mariota-loving arse to Nashville. Why dog u hang around here? What kind of a no-life troll hangs around a Bucs blog and criticizes the same person over and over?

  44. robert 9 Says:

    perhaps your having trouble with your video feed hawaiian. she clearly wanted no part of him, but he could not take a hint. or straight up NO as she clearly stated.

    she said no, he did not listen.

    sound familiar?

    bring me my damn slippers and paper. if your gonna nip at my heals all the time at least make yourself useful.

  45. robert 9 Says:

    [Chill out! For whatever reason, you have a bug up your arse about Winston. Too bad. He’s on the Bucs for the next few years. You don’t have to like him but you are not using this site for your screed. Joe’s warned you before. Might be in your best interest not to even comment about Winston since you can’t see to control yourself. At the end of the day, Joe is responsible for what is on this site. There are plenty of places on the web where you can go off on Winston and make up sh!t. Just not here. So the choice is yours: Do you want to continue commenting on or do you not? Joe’s not babysitting your comments any longer. Your call. Joe will be happy to oblige either way. — Joe]

  46. WS99 Says:

    Didn’t we leave Supersam and Barry in the dumpster yesterday? Jeez

    Jameis just wanted to pray for her. She didn’t want that and ran from the savior.

    I enjoyed the Twitterverse this weekend. I don’t do Twitter often but I knew Jameis with a hall pass in LA was going to lead to something good and boy he did not disappoint.

    #roscoes #snapscat #heyladies

  47. Supersam Says:

    Hahah your 100 percent correct.

  48. bucs4lyfe Says:

    you two idiots joe is talking about and you hating on a guy with a car and a girl because your riding the bus and your life sucks, kill yourself….sexual predator because the guy went out with a girl. hahahaha you two are batting for the wrong team which is why your so baffled men date women

  49. robert 9 Says:

    this article should have a captain picard WTF or Facepalm photo attached.

    and bucs4lyfe, I paid more takes last qtr than you’ll make all year slangin rock.

  50. bucs4lyfe Says:

    slangin rock? you are a racist lol dude stop watching tv you need help, you gotta be lonely

  51. Hawk Says:

    Seriously, folks, why are any of you responding to these (obvious) trolls?
    The archives will show that I was NOT in favor of drafting Winston (or Mariota), but I AM a Buccaneer fan. Winston is a Buccaneer, so until he does something (as a Buccaneer) that embarrasses his team, *I* will be rooting for him (and every other player) to be the best thing since sliced bread.
    The kid is doing all of the right things. It could be worse, the Bucs could have listened to Joe before last years’ draft. :^)

  52. Bucfansinz1986 Says:

    I guess “no” didn’t mean “no”? And the palm to the camera?? Sheesh…..just waiting…….waiting….for the other shoe to drop. It will, sooner or later. This is gonna end ugly.

  53. Love and Warrick Dunn Says:

    I love knowing how much a few of you dislike Jameis.

    It’s even better knowing he will be here for years and years. It’s only been one month since the draft. So, you still have many years of self-flagellation on a Buccaneers site ahead of you. Please proceed. It’s great.

  54. Arealbucsfan Says:

    Dam. Even tho its no a big deal, he needs to stay from chicks like Draya. Theyll take yo money. Stat devoted to ur girl Jameis. These hoes will jus keep u in trouble

  55. Arealbucsfan Says:

    Ive been all in for Winston. But this video does put him in a bad light. Stay away from hoes Jameis. Actually stay away from all the females. U gotta good girl by u, and she has stuck with u thru ur whole ordeal.

  56. Jon Says:

    Lovely lady? There is a saying..the bigger the hoop the bigger the hoe…leave her alone Jameis!!

  57. robert 9 Says:

    ALL WOMEN ARE HO’S according to the JW support crowd.

    gotta love it.

  58. Bucfansinz1986 Says:

    Really…..Infamous supporters, it shines brightly and clearly when you refer to women as “ho’s”…..but, alas, it largely reflects his fan base. The Great Divider strikes again!

  59. CoolStoryBro Says:

    This young lady (Draya) is/was dating Orlando Scandrick from the cowgirls. Other sites say Draya & Jameis were flirting with each other in the club all night. She is pretty popular & probably freaked out once she realized that the paparrazzi caught wind of their flirting. She made Jameis look bad by making the door gesture a big deal… Winston will learn to focus on football one way or another. I hope this will help humble him.

  60. Kevin Says:

    God it’s too early for this crap. Please don’t screw up winston….PLEASE!!!!!!!

  61. Jim Says:

    Five years from now all of this is going to seem very silly.

  63. Arealbucsfan Says:

    Ur a lil sensitive aren’t u? we really mad about calling a ho, a ho? A spade is a spade. I calls it likes i sees it.

  64. Arealbucsfan Says:

    That comment was for u @Bucsfansinz1986

  65. Architek Says:

    It’s a fun story and it deserves a light hearted smile. Why can’t he chase a feline (hood rat nonetheless) but let’s have fun with our young franchise quarterback and enjoy his journey with him!!

    Dam you folks are some haters – I’d hate to live with you all…boring and lame lives

  66. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    @coolstory – that is what it looked like to me. Seemed like Jameis thought the two were cool with each other. She saw the cameras and heard the question and she freaked out. If anything it looks like she was the one who got really nervous about someone seeing her out with Jameis.

  67. Mariota Should Have Been the Pick Says:

    She was fine… if I was drunk I’d be chasing that too.

  68. Warren Says:

    Jesus…I would hate to be 22 and having the whole world watching every time I struck out with a chick. *facepalm*

  69. Buccfan37 Says:

    I enjoy reading the yin and the yang of Winston and his trip as Bucs QB. You can please some of the people some of the time or none of the people none of the time.

  70. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Lol, you guys are too funny. Jameis is chasing a little tail, and you guys make as if he is destroying the team. News flash, guys chase after women. If you have a problem with that, I don’t know what to tell you. Aside from Tim Tebow, you go ahead and find me one that doesn’t. Stop being so dramatic. It’s gonna be okay.

  71. lurker Says:

    holy heck…

    i turned out the lights on this thread and all the cockroaches showed up!

  72. Joe Says:

    i turned out the lights on this thread and all the cockroaches showed up!


  73. P'cola Buc Says:

    The man opened a car door for a woman. That is called a gentleman. Reports state that she spent considerable time flirting with Winston all evening. Seems like she changed her tune in front of the media-not wanting to bring national attention to the evening. For all we know she may have a boyfriend who is not in favor of her being linked with other guys. In any case, this is an example of the media is reaching way too far trying to spin Jameis in a negative light. (smh).

  74. JC De La Torre Says:

    I saw this yesterday and I knew the haters will pile on. My opinion on this? Its none of my business or yours. Jameis’ personal life is his own business. We don’t know the particulars of the relationship with Breezy Boo. Hell, for all we know they have an open relationship. Many people do that before settling down and getting married.

    And oh my god, he opened the door for a lady…the scandal!

    Bottom line, it’s none of our business. It doesn’t effect him on the field. Doesn’t put the team in a bad light (he’s not making it rain like Johnny Football) – its his personal business.

    Move along.

  75. White Tiger Says:

    For all those inside “Capital Circle” – and the Jameis fanboys – this is what the rest of the NFL was concerned about drafting someone with Winston’s particular issues.

    The media isn’t “hating” on Winston, they’re reporting on the fodder he’s giving them.

    If he doesn’t grow up, he can expect to face this the rest of his career.
