Good Thing Jameis Is Nimble

August 17th, 2015
Jameis proved Saturday night he is not immobile.

Jameis showed Saturday night he is not immobile.

Joe remembers through the NFL Scouting Combine and leading up to the draft, the haters out hollering themselves hoarse for the Bucs not to draft “America’s Quarterback,” Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, because he was slow and immobile.

(Yet in the same breath, they considered leaky, sleepy Josh Freeman the next Fran Tarkenton despite both Jameis and Freeman clocking the same time in the 40-yard dash.)

Well, Aaron Nagler of has evidence that Jameis is, in fact, nimble with the feet — video evidence, in fact.

And it is a good thing Jameis is fleet of feet, otherwise, he just may have been maimed.

    He is really good at sliding too!
    Lovie said they will have to work on that. Just what, if anything, do they teach them??


  2. Joe Cool Says:

    WINston is an alien from another planet where true champions are born. Guy is going to KILL it in the NFL. Can’t wait.

  3. Pete Says:

    Please get an Oline to protect him!

  4. Tampa Tony Says:

    Once Lovie is fired and a offensive coach is hired Jameis will blow up

    My Take on the clip: Jameis evades the rush and keeps his eyes on the field for receivers–Dotson gave up and stop blocking and Winston had to dance outta there. Dotson looks hurt in this clip.

    Since the Jamarcus Russel=Jameis Winston comparison failed miserably, as it should have, I have already seen some haters change the comparison to Myron Leftwich. Seriously?
    I am curious to see how the rookie O-lineman progress through the pre-season and how the new blocking schemes utilized by Koetter and implemented by Warhop look as well. It will take time, more than 4 preseason games I afraid.
    Sorry guys, just keeping it real.

    Joe someone was asking you about Fragel not getting a shot at tackle on your article on Milk Cartons, but guess who got beaten on that video? Mr. Fragel nonetheless……. Next Man Up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. No better way to say it Says:

    Winston isnt a burner but he can move more than well enough for a QB. He had some pretty crazy runs at FSU one in particular against NCST last year I think it was.

  9. ben Says:

    Yea… How many passes did M.M. complete his first game? and yes ,the bucs have much better receivers then Tenn.

  10. tickrdr Says:

    Dotson 69
    Gilkey 72
    Marpet 74
    Fragel 79 ——- on the milk carton, I guess.

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo is very nimble. Pablo got that way by walking around on Pasco County Roofs in the hot Florida sun. Wit the Bucs Oline, Pablo thinks Jameis will have to be as nimble as Mikhail Baryshnikov & Gene Kelly. Perhaps Jameis could do Flamenco dancing at the Columbia in Ybor in the off season to practice.”

  12. rhenry Says:

    Pablo should know the quickest way to get nimble is by chasing chickens. Just ask Rocky Balboa…

  13. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo believes the best way to get nimble is to table dance for 87 & friends”

  14. Lakeland Buc Says:

    Some of these haters take it to the extreme, I mean the things they type. Don’t make any kind of sense, it make you wonder. Are they on drugs? are they a mental patient?. SMH

  15. bibfortuna Says:

    Man, that was Marpet…

  16. The Buc Realist Says:

    I hope that they are working on Winston to be even faster. With the Bucs defense they will be behind 2 scores in the second quarter. The other teams this year will be pinning their ears back and rushing the passer from there on out!!!! And with this O-line bullets will be flying at Winston!!!

  17. Buc Rogers Says:

    The Lovie and Licht show is starting to remind me of the late 80’s, early 90’s! cant figure the draft nor free agency! Like 2 monkeys F’n a football!!!!!

  18. Yungry Says:

    Mike Glennon for president!

  20. Lakeland Buc Says:

    @ Realist, The Bucs just signed Gosder Cherilus to a 2 year contract. According to multiple reports.

  21. The Buc Realist Says:

    @Lakeland Buc

    thx, let me revise my post!!!

    I hope that they are working on Winston to be even faster. With the Bucs defense ANDO-LINE they will be behind 2 scores in the second quarter. The other teams this year will be pinning their ears back and rushing the passer from there on out!!!! And with this O-line bullets will be flying at Winston!!!

  22. The Buc Realist Says:

    And the porous O-line they will be behind by 3 scores in the second quarter!!!!

  23. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Jameis runs for a handful of yards and pics up a running TD. MM throws for 7-8.

    What is this the twilight zone?

    I find it amusing that some were so critical of Jameis’ speed. He looked quick out there to me. no sprint but he is elusive in the pocket and appeared to be quicker than his 40 time would suggest. liked what I saw, well except for when he was actually throwing it 😉

  24. Stanglassman Says:

    Bucs signed Cherilus to a 2 yr deal. Hopefully not a sign of panic.

  25. Lord Cornelius Says:

    I haven’t really commented much. Didn’t see the game but saw the highlights. lol @ the insane kneejerk reactions to 1 preseason game. I thought it was bad when people did that in the regular season; but people are now doing it for preseason which I find pretty funny.

    My main concern would pretty much just be the first team defense not looking sharp. Sounds like the O-line looks a bit better and more promising; and in the highlights I saw they did a decent job. Sucks about Dotson.

    Looking forward to catching game 2 Monday night

  26. Stanglassman Says:

    Alexander already beat out Carter for MLB.

  27. chickster Says:

    I’ve said some bad things about this guy but I m starting to think the bucs have something here I like the way he handled the game showed a lot of talent his second start should be a lot better I like the way he competed and stayed with it running game looked good there is a lot to be happy about last year the bucs starting defense in the first pre season game looked great and you know what happened there I know its easy to say this game meant nothing but they played a hell of a lot better than last year first game by far

  28. chickster Says:

    If anything you should be disappointed with dump off Glennon to me he is not improving looks the same looks good at times but just cant seem to get you there like a retiring hooker

  29. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Stan, I think Lovie is hoping he does. He played well!

  30. tickrdr Says:

    A few simple questions, and then you can call me a hater.

    1) Why didn’t JW3 slide rather than take those potentially severe hits when he ran?
    2) For a football “savant” as everyone feels he is, why did he say “I was taught to fall forward in the NFL”, which may apply at the college level since you are down when you are down, and do not have to be touched or tackled down. But in the NFL, you become a “ball carrier”, and the usual protections for a QB no longer apply.
    3) Again, why did Lovie say we will have to work on his sliding, when asked about it? Don’t they teach fundamentals at this level at all? This was eerily reminiscent of the comment made by ME13 during one of last season’s preseason games when stripped of the ball because he did not transfer the ball to his “outside” hand and commenting that he had never been taught that!
    4) I agree that his “football speed” seems excellent compared with his “40” speed, but for me I would prefer that he keep two hands on the ball when running, especially after already being grabbed by not just one, but two defenders in his own endzone. (See those big purple letters on the field)


  31. Stanglassman Says:

    A runner is taught to fall forward, a 1st over all pick is told when he tries that in a preseason game to slide feet first. The refs missed that PI call is the bottom line. If it was P. Manning or other big name QBs it would have been called.

  32. Buccfan37 Says:

    Jameis be nimble, Jameis be semi quick, Jameis make the hater’s anger uptick.

  33. LargoBuc Says:

    Jameis did not looked poised in the pocket. He didnt look horrible. But it was his first game. If he keeps working, he’ll get more comfortable in the pocket and deliver the ball with the utmost confidence.
    Now, its not that he isnt aware of whats going on, he did. Its also hard when Garret Gilk is your center. No way should he take up a roster spot.
    We essentially got two more games to get Jameis warmed up for the season

  34. MGL Says:

    In college, he did move around adeptly in the pocket. I wouldn’t call him balletic – more along the lines of Big Ben, kind of sidestepping and maneuvering when necessary. But he does try to stay in the pocket and make the play.

    As for the sliding, though, that was awful. It’s a mystery to me how a baseball player can’t do it better. I’m gonna assume the coaches will be drilling him on THAT some more!
