Jameis Enjoyed Getting Sacked, Downplayed Speed

August 18th, 2015

jameis 0818The analysts said Jameis Winston came out of college extraordinarily NFL-ready. And the way Jameis talked to Joe and other media this evening, that was never in doubt during his first preseason game.

Jameis was asked about his introduction to playing a real NFL opponent in Minnesota, and Jameis brushed off any thought of being wide-eyed rookie.

“The main thing was being able to feel a true rush,” Jameis said. “You know, again, the defensive ends actually being able to sack you. Other than these guys, [Bucs defensive ends] saying they got a sack [in practice] when it probably wasn’t really a sack. But you know, you got to feel the real rush. And that was important.”

Do you like that Jameis? Is it exhilarating? he was asked.

“Absolutely. We’re playing real football,” Jameis said. “Any chance I get to play real football I love it. I enjoy it.”.

So there you have it. Jameis likes to get hit and was not phased by the bright lights and a fierce pass rush.

Jameis also was asked if the NFL speed “surprised” him. His answer was “not really. … I had high expectations for our offense.”

    Love to hear this, can’t wait for that fire to show this season. Jameis doesn’t sulk after a loss or talk real low, or whine. He picks up the pieces and gets back to work.

    Lord Cornelius, I saw that article and chuckled when he mentioned “realists” . I will remain optimistic throughout this season regardless. That is what being a fan is all about.

    I hold the Glazers, Lovie, Licht and Koetter personally responsible for this kids health.

    Hopefully the Glazers will allow the team to explore ALL options at O-line
    no matter the cash price.

    The Oline must know the heat is on. Hope they dont start dropping like flies, or in gilkys case, big piece of sh!t.

    +1 Lord Cornelius. I had a weak moment last year when the Ravens curb stomped us beyond recognition. I think I commented during that game and almost bailed. But really, that’s never gonna happen. I was born and raised in Tampa in the 70’s and 80’s. Seen my parents almost get divorced over Bucs-ruined Sunday dinners. I’m in for the long haul and I will remain optimistic. Hopes are up! Seige the dam day! Go Bucs!

    Jameis instills and exudes confidence, what more can anyone ask for in a player? He is our Bucs QB and damn he is going to be good, I have no doubts.
