Jameis Talks Jeremiah Warren

"America's Quarterback" sure seemed at ease the past two weeks playing behind backup center Jeremiah Warren.

“America’s Quarterback” sure seemed at ease the past two weeks playing behind backup center Jeremiah Warren.

Joe mentioned last night how, at least from the naked eye, it seems like “America’s Quarterback,” Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, is very comfortable taking snaps from backup Jeremiah Warren.

Ten days ago against the Vikings, with uneven snaps from starting center Evan Smith, and the Russian roulette of snaps from Garrett Gilkey, Warren and his consistent snapping seemed to be the elixir for Jameis. Last night, with Warren starting, Jameis played every bit the No. 1 overall draft pick he is against the Bengals.

Joe asked Jameis if it was a coincidence he has played his best ball with Warren at center.

Jameis couldn’t hide that famous smile of his.

“I was so happy that he stepped up,” Jameis said of Warren. “He did a great job. Just our whole offensive line had an amazing day. By them doing so well, it obviously helped us get a win.”

That should not be overlooked. Jameis, for the most part, had time to throw and he was sharp. Imagine what decent blocking can do for a quarterback?

    Outside of him tripping Winston twice, Warren appeared to have a very good game. Now if we can just get rid of Gilkey…

    Let’s keep giving this group some reps together. No problem with rookie centers whatsoever. Just look some great o-lines did it before including Broncos, Cowboys and Patriots recently. Let the best combination play and just see! Go Bucs!

    Its obvious that playing center is not brain surgery as EDS has made it seem. I say show EDS the door and bring in someone off the wavier wire to be Warrens backup. We have suffered too long at this position which can seemingly bring down the entire O-Line. I don’t think its a coincidence that the O-Line looked as impressive as I have seen them in a few years with also the addition of Marpet and Smith.

  4. Stanglassman Says:

    I think it was the G(s) that kept tripping him. It’s hard for a C to trip the QB and easy for a G.

  5. Greg Says:

    @ twizzylax, yeah it was hard to tell one of the times Jameis tripped whether it was Warren that tripped him or if Jameis tripped himself.

  6. Tom Edrington Says:

    THE MOST important thing is that the Bucs ran the ball last night, that is the most crucial factor if Jameis is going to be successful on Sundays.

    Keep Warren at C, with Marpet, D Smith, and Warren, you have 3 young guys who can grow together. If Warren does well, why change? We all know E(d)S is gon next year anyway with that money he is due.

  8. ATrain Says:

    Martin looked awesome last night.. The Oline looked better than it has in years…

    I hope they keep growing and going in this direction..

    Cincy is no joke of a team and they beat them like a dirty rug..

  9. Another J Says:

    The O-Line as a whole looked good!

    Another shout out for the USF Bulls. Jenkins who? The Bucs and Bulls both improve this season. That’s what I’ll be talking about!

    EDS would be a good backup guard and backup center.

  12. Sick of the Wait Says:

    EDS is due much more money than what a back up should be paid. Moves need to be made.

    I don’t want to hear anything about the o-line playing bad last night.

    Ali Marpet — I mean what can you say? The kid went up against one of the best DT’s in the game last night and not only held his own but dominated at times. He played a helluva game last night

    As did Kwon Alexander. I went into last nights game intent on watching Marpet & Kwon as much as possible, and there is NO DOUBT why Kwon is starting. His instincts are off the chart and OH MY GOD can he step into running lanes and close them off in a hurry. The way he took on blockers…..very very impressive. This kid is something special

    I know it’s only the preseason, but damn it looks like Licht put together one helluva draft

    Calling the blocking signals is part of playing center so while it may not be brain surgery there is more to it than just snapping the ball and double teaming DT’s.
    Lets’ calm down folks. Last week folks were jumping off the bridge, this week I already saw a post that said they would win the NFC South. What a friggin Bi-Polar fan base. R_E_L_A_X.
    I saw progress last night, no more, no less. I saw Jameis make a couple of big time throws, one was caught, one wasn’t. The OLine flashed while the Bengals were in a vanilla Defense and they struggled handing blitz packages. PENALTIES!!!!
    The Defense put up a better effort across the board.
    I’m looking forward to Saturday to see how they do. Will they have a let down? Will they continue to progress? It’s part of the fun watching the growth.

    The Gilkey at center experiment needs to end. I know the coaches feel like he is doing some good things at guard – and the back up guard needs to also be able to play center in an emergency – so they are trying to get Gilkey some “experience” at the position. But how many bad snaps in games do we and the coaches need to see before the Gilkey at Center idea is proclaimed “not feasible”??

    That shotgun snap in the 2nd half about 5 feet over Lobato’s head should have been the final straw IMO.

  16. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    God Doug Martin looked AHmazing. cant wait to see him tear it up for 4 quarters

  17. David Says:

    I was impressed with Mike James…hope he gets some touches.

  18. Jason McLaurin Says:

    I was impressed enough with Warren at center last to secure Marpet at right guard as a starter and Warren should definitely start at center if our qb is in smiles and proud that he has met expectations. I can’t say enough about my displeasure of seeing Evan Smith still on this team and I dont think Gilkey is still an option at center either. Its down to Warren to me and I like his footwork for his size. Hes surprisingly better in pass blocking than run blocking too for his size and Warren is collegiate from South Florida too so no need to giving our fan base Evan Smith anything. Evan Smith should be cut sooner rather than later because he is no good in pass blocking and hes an out of shape jerk too
