It Is All About “Sunday!”

August 27th, 2015


For America’s Quarterback, Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, success the past couple of seasons has largely come on Saturdays.

If he is to have success with the Bucs, then it largely will be on Sundays.

Already, Sunday is part of Winston’s football vernacular. That’s what Jenny Ventras of picked up on while watching Jameis bark signals against the Bungles on Monday night, and Vrentas thinks she knows what the cadence meant.

I think Jameis Winston is to “Sunday” as the Mannings are to “Omaha.” That’s the word they yell before the snap, which usually signals that the center will snap the ball on the next word out of their mouth. You could clearly hear Winston barking “Sunday” on a series of plays during Tampa Bay’s preseason game vs. Cincy, which, along with ESPN’s overhead cam behind Winston, made for a cool window into what the rookie was seeing and saying pre-snap.

Interesting insight. So when the regular season begins and a boom mic from FOX or CBS picks up Jameis barking “Sunday,” that means you better put your beer down and pay attention because something is coming.

And hopefully, that will be something big or good. You know, like a bomb to Mike Evans?

    Jamie’s’ play was spectacular in only his 2nd preseason game. Fun and exciting to see. As Buc fans we should be elated in the future potential of our first ever franchise QB!

    If we protect him, we will win

  3. The Buc Realist Says:

    We could hear him whisper “Sunday” on Monday, Because there were less people in the stands than a USF football game!!!!!

    The Bucs Pessimist could find something negative to say about a firefighter rescuing a sack of kittens from burning orphanage if that firefighter had an affiliation to the Bucs. Damn dude…the next time I read something positive from you, it will be the first time.

    (For the record, you’re right about the crowd and that was funny)

  5. The Buc Realist Says:


    what are you talking about??? Why, just on Tuesday I wrote something positive!!!! Don’t believe me, check it out!!!

    That was the first time I recall clearly hearing the snap count while watching on TV.

    I am especially thankful for DVR more so now than ever. The stadium experience is one thing but watching again at home on HD TV is like watching a whole different game. Great to get to see close up angles and hear what the commentators have to say. Last few seasons watching once was too much to endure. LOL

    Win one more preseason game and the crowd will come. Trust me!

    I thought it was completely obvious that “Sunday” referred to the snap count.

    It was always “Sunday” then “ready GO” when the ball was snapped. My thought was that Sunday would be “on one,” “Monday” would be “on two,” etc etc

  11. Buccfan37 Says:

    That Bucs crowd did look rather thin. Glennon also used Sunday on the snap count.

  12. @Hands2theFace Says:

    @The Bucs Pessimist – in a backhanded way, I guess that was a compliment.

    (I appreciate the “Realist” outlook)

  13. Pickgrin Says:

    Winston sounded like a veteran QB barking out signals with authority.

    bomb to mike evans. hopefully his flopping is done.

    lots of people had problems with their tickets..when the person at the gate scanned the tickets it would say “already used” which forced everyone to go to will call to reactivate the ticket..that caused the crowd to arrive late..i was lucky enough to not miss any action but the couple that I was seating next to didn’t arrive until the second series..the series when verner made the pick6 the whole stadium was yelling was great to see and hear..unfortunately, my brother had to work on Tuesday so we left after the td pass from glennon along with most of the crowd..with a performance like that we will have no problem selling out the stadium..GO BUCS!!!

    C’Mon people!! I was there and the crowd was thin. It was a Monday night preseason game, the night before the first day of school, with a team that lost every home game last year. Being critical of the crowd that night is stupid. Ticket sales are way up because of JW and will be more than fine.
