“I Love The Action”

Jameis explains that he likes getting hit -- right now.

Jameis explains that he likes getting hit — right now.

Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, wants to get hit.

He likes it, Jameis said today at One Buc Palace.

This is nothing new for Jameis. Remember, Jameis was happy to be sacked in Minnesota.

Jameis was peppered with questions at One Buc Palace this afternoon about playing to preserve his body. And Jameis acknowledged that will come but it’s a tough transition for a healthy young stud like himself.

“I gotta learn it,” Jameis said. “Because I love to compete. I love to be competitive, but at the end of the day, just like Coach Koetter said, ‘You gotta know when to just leave it alone.’ You know, I’m young right now and I love the action. You know, as quarterbacks we don’t get hit at practice, I want to go ahead in the preseason and get it out of the way.”

Yes, Jameis must stay healthy, and he referenced how Cam Newton and Russell Wilson are great at avoiding big hits.

Joe just hopes the Bucs don’t coach the aggression and instincts out of Jameis. He’s a true pocket passer who can move and make plays. Ben Roethlisberger made quite a career out of that.

    I don’t think the Bucs are going to coach that out of him. For one thing I’m not sure they could if they wanted. It seems like this is in Fameis DNA

    If we MUST make comparisons I like your Roethlisberger choice. Fameis has good size and while not fleet of foot he’s pretty agile and good at making people miss and he obviously enjoys running. He just LOVES to compete.

    Which is why the Buc fans have already fallen in love with Fameis.

    I know this is not all request radio but after reading your site for a year, I came aboard about this time last year as a reader, it’s clear to me that you guys are workoholics who have spent the time to get really wired in at OBP.

    And so I’m wondering if you guys have ever thought of a feature, perhaps weekly on a slow day, and call it “Ask Joe”. Many of us would love to pick your brains.
    Perhaps the interns could screen the threads and just pass the interesting questions along.

    Here is a sample. Many times we get one impression after the game as do you and the team and coaches. But then the coaches break down the film and grade each player and the “real” results of the game are known. Sometimes the team played better than the result, other times not.

    And so I’m curious if after all the video sessions and review of the Bengals game what the coaches and players saw. What do they feel they did poorly and are they still as jacked about their success as we all were after the contest?

    Jameis likes to get hit until he really gets hit then he will prefer not to get hit

    I think it’s a QB thing tom,Sam Bradford said the same thing before his game the other day. It probably takes the unknown out of it before the real games take place here shortly.

    @Nole: I understand, I remember my fifth D-1 lacrosse game at ECU when I collided going for a loose ball with a 235-pound Penn State defenseman. I was a 170-pound middie, didn’t mind the contact but also knew afterwards that wasn’t something you needed on a regular basis if you wanted to finish the season……..

    I don’t believe Jameis would want to get crushed by JJ Watt.
