“It Helps Me Actually View What Greatness Is”

August 4th, 2015

JameismugAs Joe wrote yesterday, Jameis Winston was given a homework assignment by Derrick Brooks.

So Joe asked Jameis about that today to see if he completed his assignment.

Brooks wanted Jameis to study Peyton Manning, especially Manning’s early years. Jameis did his homework.

“One thing about Peyton Manning is he’s very effective and very consistent. You know, so, anytime I’m able to watch a prolific quarterback like he is, it means a lot to me. It helps me actually view what greatness is,” Jameis said.

Jameis didn’t offer many specifics, other than to say he’s watching tendencies, preparation, and everything.

None of this means much, but Joe is pleased that Jamies is doing as he’s told and listening to his mentor, even if Lovie Smith insists Jameis doesn’t need one.

    I think it’s a combination of Brooks being a former Nole and former Buc as to the reason Brook’s show interest in the kid. I certainly have no problems with that at all.

    Good stuff. Jameis is doing a nice job of staying focused. I think we got a good one with him.

    If I’m not mistaken Lovie said Winston doesn’t need a babysitter. A mentor is totally different. Everyone can use a mentor even Jameis.

    First thing Jameis will have to learn to do is get up to the line and shout:

    “Omaha! Omaha!”

    In a few years, young QBs will be watching tape of Jameis Winston – trying to emulate what made him such a successful NFL QB.

    I like the sound of that Pickgrin. Deep down inside all of us, even the haters, hope that becomes reality.

    For real pick. Just a matter of time.
