“He Cracked The Code”

August 19th, 2015

Jameis Bajakian

There’s been much written about the football genius and overall genius of Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback.

Now there’s even more insight — at least new to Joe — about how Winston was breaking down the game during his kindergarten years.

John Clayton, “The Professor” of BSPN, had private time with Jameis recently and dove into Jameis’ intense football upbringing. Here’s a snippet:

“Well, ever since I was six, I had a little notebook with coverages and notes on the mental aspect of a game, what it meant to be a leader and what type of attitude you had to have,” Winston told me earlier this week. “When I was young, I always wanted to be great at football.”

Even at six, he understood the troubles of being a student of the game through the television. He didn’t have DVR. NFL GamePass wasn’t around. He had no access of coaches’ All-22 view of the entire field. At age six, his mind was a quarterback trapped in the pocket with a limited view of the field.

“When I watched games, I watched the coverages,” Winston said. “I watched the decision the quarterback makes based on coverage. But when I watched television, it was tough because I couldn’t see the safeties sometimes.”

This is all very interesting, and the linked article above has quotes on Jameis’ acumen from offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, and Clayton explains how Jameis “cracked the code” of the Bucs.

However, Joe knows this is all just fun and fantasy — until it’s reality on the field.  Plenty of guys in NFL history, from Andrew Luck to Todd Marinovich, were raised with the game by driven parents.

Jameis simply has to produce.

    Jameis, overcome Lovies ineptitude and get us some wins

  2. Buc Fan #7423 Says:

    Hope he cracks the code of throwing touchdowns with that offensive line

  3. Destinjohnny Says:

    Nice he has some Intangables that are special.’he has been a model citizen and teamate thus far. Hopefully he can tighten up his motion and get his accuracy problems under control. He threw 18 picks in college with his team having far superior talent over it’s competition for the most part. An elongated delivery will turn u into a interception machine in the bigs

  4. Couch Fan Says:

    Best thing Lovie has done so far is drafting this guy. Can’t wait to see him rise to stardom!

  5. Joe Cool Says:

    Destin Johnny, what makes you think FSU had “far superior” players than other teams? FSU played 3 teams that had defenses in the 10 last year. The ACC isn’t as easy as people think. Tired of hearing about 18 picks. UNDEFEATED.

  6. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    This “elongated” talking point is such nonsense. Have you guys never seen Philip Rivers throw the ball?

    There isn’t a damn thing wrong with Jameis’ fundamentals right now…much improved from last yr at FSU.

  7. scotty Says:

    Payton threw 28 picks his rookie year and he turned out ok!

  8. ac5 Says:

    destin stfu! let the man get a couple of games under his belt.. look at philip rivers unorthodox throw he’s had a pretty good career if you ask me. Y’all haters need to jump off Jameis jock and watch greatness unfold before your eyes!!!! It’s unbelievable how you haters expect the man to be Peyton Manning after his first game LOL

  9. Bobby Says:

    ^^^^ yep

  10. scotty Says:

    Peyton (sorry)

  11. Love and Warrick Dunn Says:

    “I’m still bitter they didn’t draft the guy that I WANTED. So, I’m going to keep saying the same things I said before the draft”

    throwing motion
    blah blah blah

    We get it. We heard it all 10 million different ways up to April 20th. Thanks for the enlightenment. Sorry your career as a pro scout never took off. Don’t take it out on us.

  12. Tiny Tim Says:

    Some of you guys are parrots. You just mimic what you hear so called “experts” say and you try to throw that out as if you are an astute football guru. Listen parrots, do your own freaking research and stop mimicking nonsense. I see some of you still don’t know Jameis and it is very comical at this point. Far superior talent? Yet you neglect to mention that his oline in college last year sucked until like week 9. No mention of how weak FSU defense was last year? I get it parrots, someone said far superior talent and you simply mimicked it. Too funny!!!!

  13. Dave Says:

    You miserable negative people on here are just insane.
    Is your whole life negative and filled with misery or you save it all for the team you claim to support?
    How about giving Lovie and Winston a chance? Say 2 years. Like a normal person when looking at a rookie QB and a team with a new head coach Who has had only one year to basically clean out the roster.
    The negativity really is pathetic.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a head in the clouds optimist. I’m a realist. And as a realist I know you have to give them time.
    You people have seen 1 half of a preseason game.
    It’s a joke

  14. Buc1987 Says:

    Poor Dave.

  15. @Broy3434 Says:

    Dave I’m 100% on board with your view. Nothing pleases people. Kwon Alexander becomes a stud and its “Lovie can’t find talent” like what. Michael Johnson was the top d end in FA last year undoubtedly. 90 percent of these haters would’ve signed him AND drafted Jameis if they were standing in front of the media everyday too

  16. @Broy3434 Says:

    Also the guy who mentioned rivers is spot on. Dudes awkward nobody in SD gives a rats ass. Can’t wait for game 2 when Winston doesn’t airmail it 3 times to start and then go 7-10 and get no praise due to a bad Vikings announce team

  17. Greg Says:

    Jameis simply has to produce
    Wow Joe you seem to be backing off of America’s quarterback
    For the first time I can remember you dont seem as confident

  18. Dave Says:

    No poor Dave here so called Bucsfan.
    I’m happy as hell. Not walking thru life in misery thinking the sky is falling.
    I just don’t get that mentality. You live once. Smile. Enjoy it. Be positive. Give people a chance.
    Like the last couple of coaches. If it fails, move on.

  19. destinjohnny Says:

    ACC you are right had 3 if not 4 really good teams. . They produced quite a few NFL picks as well. Now what about the 9 other squads.

    FSU had a player drafted at every position of the offense. They had a lot of talent on those teams man.
    Im just saying what I see and I feel like if you have a slow delivery and aren’t accurate you will have issues in the bigs.
    But hold on> the guy has a monster will to win and does stand tall in the pocket.
    I love his fire and competitive edge. If he can correct his issues you will see a top ten QB but that remains to be seen.
    But the sad thing is we want get to see it either way cause he will be on his back the whole season due to L and L not knowing how to draft linemen.

  20. Lakeland Buc Says:

    Jameis Winston will be our franchise QB for years and years, we never had a

  21. Lakeland Buc Says:

    Jameis Winston will be our Franchise QB for years and years, we never had a QB who got a second deal. I know Jameis will be ok, he’s a football junkie. Ray Lewis was like that when he played for the Lakeland Lumberjacks, back in the day.And he did it in college, he got more addicted to football in the NFL. And Jameis will do the same thing, I love this young team.

  22. Buccfan37 Says:

    The Battle of the Comments, it’s humorous I’ll give it that. The Bucs need to reel off 5 wins to start the season and then it will be mostly positive.

  23. ptwalk Says:

    Let me see if I got this right, Lovie gets the blame when thing don’t go right and when they do, it’s in spite of him? Oh, ok that’s how it goes, I get it now. Anyway, Jamies is gonna disappoint a lot of people, those that are rooting against him, that is.

  24. Owlykat Says:

    Folks the proof is in the pudding but the pudding is during the regular season. Right now this is a learning experience for Winston to get ready for the regular season and for the Buc’s to determine their starting lineups and who they will keep for depth. Each team is hiding their best plays and true tendencies and many are holding out some of their top players to avoid injury, so you have to factor all that in when making your analysis. Experts are saying Winston did well. Some of his mistakes occurred because the OL missed blocks or didn’t allow him to step up, but to his credit Winston doesn’t point fingers to players who caused him to look bad unfairly. Jamesis has been a class act on and off the field so far.

  25. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Kind of like tiger Woods…

    …oh wait…Tiger is a sexual deviant…

  26. Buccfan37 Says:

    I saw a picture of Tiger Woods from his high school prom, a striking blonde was his date.

  27. Danati74 Says:

    The Bucs did their reaserch a hundred times. They drafted WINSton #1 for a reason. Give the young gun time, he will not disappoint like many believe. Hes been in the scouts eyesight since HS. He was born to lead and win and as Bucs fans we should be happy to have him. He will give us a chance to win for a long time. Unlike Dilfer, Giraffe boy, and The Joshes. Guys get ready for the season. Buy some Bucs gear, get a new TV, and ditch the family. Fire the cannons cuz the Bucs are back!!! Seige the fucn day. Lol

    Now that’s real talk Danati.
