Brooks Gave Jameis Winston “Homework”

August 3rd, 2015

BrooksLovieLovie Smith insists Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, does not need a mentor.

But that doesn’t mean Jameis is without one.

Mr. Derrick Brooks is mentoring Jameis. That’s been rumored and discussed many different ways. But yesterday, speaking at a Hooters fantasy football event at the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway, Brooks confirmed — again — that he’s counseling Jameis and advised him to study a quarterback legend.

Brooks told Chris Fischer, of WTSP-TV, Ch. 10 that Jameis was given “homework” to go back and review how Peyton Manning carried himself off the field and with media during his first couple of seasons.

It’s interesting how Brooks’ focus, in this example, was about something unrelated to Xs and Os. Brooks often talks references a need to develop the entirety of a man and leader.

These tales are all good signs. Not every rookie is open to advice and mentoring from various sources. Jameis seems to crave it.

  4. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Small sample size of course but I am very pleased to see that Winston has done literally everything right since entering the draft

  5. Rrsrq Says:

    Should’ve have told him to study Eli on draft nite, what not to do…

  6. Tom Edrington Says:

    OBW: The bonehead center is NOT allowed to call Derrick Brooks by his first name….he will have to refer to him as MR. BROOKS……..

  7. Crazylocha Says:

    Jolly, isn’t that the point? “Small sample size”
    I.e. stay out of the news, out of sight, and let your actions on the field do the talking?

    Sounds like a solid job by Mr. Brooks

    The only important thing here is the mindset of Jameis. If he wants to be a successfull, responsible adult than people like Brooks are great role models to help get him there. If he wants go all Jonny Manzel and be a clown and a screw up, then people like Brooks wont matter a flip. It’s all on Jameis and all indications so far point to his head being in the right place, that he is no longer an 18 or 19 kid and that he is motivated to put all that behind him. I think he will be just fine.

    trust me JW needs off the field mentoring.

  10. Jena W Says:

    Destinjohnny – really? Are you stalking JW to follow his every move and have proof that his off field behavior since being drafted warrants mentoring?

    Considering Alstott seems happy to have JW at any charity event he puts together, and JW has ‘indulged’ himself at such horrible things like showing up at the bedside of very sick kids to help raise money for their medical care and purchasing (non Buc) fan gear at his own expense and giving it to a young boy who recognized him at a baseball game in Houston, I think he’s good. Not sure yet, how about the training sessions with other players JW set up in the off season? Still not convinced? Let’s not forget to mention that not one veteran Bucs player has had a bad thing to say about JW and everyone from the coach to owners have been praising him for his on AND off field behavior.

    Hmmmm, I have to say that I think you’re a cannon load full of crap!

    People will always attract who and what they truly are. Always. Take a kid from a ghetto who grows up with aspirations of being the best man he can be, making wise choices for role models, who constantly strives to make himself better, and he will be an unstoppable force, because that man was a winner all along. Give a lazy loser 25 million dollars in lottery winnings, and he’ll be broke in less than 3 years because a lazy loser is what he always was.

    Success and greatness is either in you or it isn’t. Derrick Brooks knows that truth because he has lived it.

  12. Buc1987 Says:

    Jena W…also you have to add that the last time Jameis got in trouble off the field was almost a year ago…

    Sept 16th 2014…322 days ago.
