Jameis Is No Fan Of “Low-Intensity” Football

August 16th, 2015

JameisSackedJoe swears, Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, is the most naturally confident young athlete he’s ever seen.

It’s almost hard to explain. Take what Jameis told Joe after the Vikings-Bucs game.

To open his postgame news conference, Jameis was asked (not by Joe) about how he and the Bucs started slowly.

And Jameis offered this answer: “It’s good to come out here and play football and play against another team. Me and the guys went out there and we fought hard. It’s preseason. So it’s kind of low intensity. But it was good to get one under your belt.”

What? Did Jameis just say it was “low intensity?” The Vikings were out there to slaughter him. He even got drilled in the head, which the zebras didn’t call. Second, the game was played before a packed house with temperatures at 88 degrees at kickoff. This was a lubed-up-with-alcohol crowd coming off hours of tailgating. “Low intensity?” It was Jameis’ first game — on national TV!

Joe couldn’t let that pass. So Joe asked Jameis what exactly “low intensity” is supposed to mean.

“Well you know, this is the first time, the fans, you know, they don’t really get into the game that much,” Jameis said. “But, it’s just preseason. One thing I’m looking forward to now is the first game at Raymond James. You know, it’s just a new feeling for me. I love it. I enjoy it. And it’s just a new experience.”

Take that Vikings fans. Jameis thinks you’re a little soft compared to what he’s used to.

Earlier in his news conference, Jameis talked about how he liked when the Bucs ramped up the intensity and tempo. That’s his rhythm. “An energy burst” is a help,” he said, “get back to playing football.”

    Jameis is exciting to watch play, Glennon is not. MG makes throws but will not win, you know that going in. MG is in=time to feed the dog, clean bathrooms, laundry–anything left on the list is as good as watching MG play. Jameis was exciting to watch–he had to field Gilkey’s jump balls then make a play. He dove head first into the end zone because he is excited! Can you imagine MG with a head first running dive into the end zone. JW is all in–it was good, will likely get better for him.

  4. Señor Mofo Says:


    Yes, Jameis is exciting to watch. And he will get better.

    But it’s still fun to needle the people who thought “America’s quarterback”, our lord and football savior, could do no wrong and would look like god’s gift to football right out of the gate.

    It’s tough to win in the NFL. But it’s always funny to watch people who think they have a really good plan for doing so.

    Patsy Cline’s “Stand by your man” should be playing in the background for this article.

    I mean, but really who get excited over a preseason game?. Jameis has been in some big time games, but most Bucs players haven’t been in big time games. This game means nothing to Jameis, it’s a preseason game, it don’t mean nothing. The Vikings players on the sidelines celebrating, like they have won the Super Bowl. They act like that because they have never won anything, but for a player like Jameis coming from FSU, a team that has been in big time games for the two years that he was there. This game just wasn’t as intense as the games at FSU,it’s a preseason game.

  7. Danr Says:

    Just to point out rothlesbergers third preseason game he went 7/11 for 73 yards and an interception

  8. Danr Says:

    As a rookie

  9. Danr Says:

    Matt ryans first preseason game 9 of 15 for 113 yards one touchdown and 2 fumbles.

  10. TallyMike Says:

    This is about what I expected. Jameis has never done well under strong pressure and was an interception machine ehen he faced teams with a strong defense. I’m guessing if he would have had a stellar outing he wouldn’t have written it off as “low intensity”.

  11. Lakeland Buc Says:

    It was a Low-Intensity game, it’s a preseason game. It don’t mean anything to people who are use to the big stage. At Lakeland High we haven’t had a losing season in 38 years, we have won 6 State Championships in the last 25 years. When we play Lake Gibson before the season start in an exhibition game, it don’t mean nothing to us. But they treat it like a playoff game, because they’re not use to big stage. This game didn’t mean anything to Jameis Winston, he have played for Championships through out High School and College. It means something to a lot of fans,because they don’t know the difference. I’m still picking my Bucs to win the division this season. And Jameis will win Offensive Rookie of the year.

  12. IdahoBucsfan Says:

    I can’t wait to hear Joe talking about stats when it was clear who the better QB is at this point! 😉

  13. Bucco bruce Says:

    Americas qb lol….that was an ugly start….so dissapointed…the fact that he throws a football like a baseball is killing me…slow windup delivery will be tellegraphed for easy picks in this league….not gonna have the time like college to do his prolonged setup and delivery….and Dotson out…bad start here 🙁

  14. Im tired and 87 is right Says:

    Joe can you just ban these so called fans who just look for the first opportunity to bash our team when they get a chance. I spend plenty of money on this team, and lots of time on your site, but I don’t need Mariota nut huggers pretending they know something about football talking smack over a pre season game. Guys get a life nobody at this point knows whether Winston will be famous or if Mariota will be great. Both have a ways to go, and both played exactly how I expected. So I don’t want to hear this crap every game. What we need to be talking about is how we lost possibly our best offensive lineman, and how our defense pass rush was not good. Go Bucs! , and Titan supporters go away!

  15. Larry Says:

    Well last night really settled it. The Bucs made a huge mistake with Winston. All of us experts could see that he is just another failure. 😀
    Preseason game #1 and we expect the 2nd coming of Bret Favre! Gees!

  16. Bucnut2 Says:

    If Winston keeps playing like this he’ll be Canada’s QB.

  17. Rob Says:

    Still not and never will be “America’s qb”. Buc rookie qb only and Napoleon played better lol. Go Bucs!

  18. Bucco Bruce Says:

    Pathetically awful as predicted. This kid is not going to transition in to be a franchise QB. He has a lazy lackluster delivery when throwing the ball… His throws are so telegraphed! It will only be a matter of time when the other teams have some NFL film on this kid, they will pick him off like they were picking oranges off a tree! I know it is first start and he actually gets to see the speed difference in this league but, with the amount of practice and the all the hope and rhetoric Joe, has been feeding us us about his so called “America’s QB” / Joe’s man crush/ lover. I expected a lot more. I seen exactly what I thought we we see. Stop this America’s QB crap Joe!!!

  19. Buccfan37 Says:

    I think Winston played well enough for a beginning. Did anybody really expect him to go out there and be all world?

  20. BucsQcCity Says:

    Hopefully he won’t let Lovie convince him that non low intensity game starts in november

  21. JabooBuc Says:

    I thought he played as well as you might expect for his FIRST PRESEASON game of his career. Poor field position and OL play made it a little extra difficult and he looked a little amped up on his early throws. But once he settled in I thought he made some good throws. Looked to me like Evans was being held on the pic and God know Gilkey made life especially difficult. Other than that, I was encouraged.

  22. BucsQcCity Says:

    Gilkey, Jenkins, L. johnson should not play like ever.

    Donovan Smith, rannel clay, winston looked like what they are:rookies.

    k. Alexander flashed some great hustle and attitude. I like him.

    I’m sorry but we need Marpet ASAP. Like winston, he’ll learn on the job.

  23. CalBucsFan Says:

    This was the refs first game too, they blew quite a number of calls as well.

    No worries about Jameis, can’t wait to see his home debut. Make some noise Bucs Fans and fire those cannons, ‘cuz Jameis is here!

  24. meatloph Says:

    It’s practice guys……. We’re talking about practice here!

  25. OklahomaBucFan Says:

    It’s so hilarious to see all the gloom and doom here so soon. The only thing concerning about last night is Dotson’s injury. You people should be more harsh toward the defense. They made more mistakes than Jameis did. Shame on you all!

  26. Harry Says:

    Some of you are just simple idiots, or haters. I don’t know which. Whoever said Winston would come out in his first ever NFL action and be inducted into the HOF?! I thought he looked fine. He showed some flash as well as some rookie jitters. Grow up idiots. If you want to complain, make it about something that is very deserving. Like Lovie’s D, or Gilkey, or special teams.

  27. Fsuking Says:

    Seriously guys, most of you are knee-jerk fans who cheer when we score and bitch when we don’t. Just keep smiling and clapping while us real fans watch and learn.

  28. Fsuking Says:

    It is unfortunate though cause if Jameis is expecting an FSU like gameday environment, he will be thoroughly disappointed. The same comment board haters are resposnible for the empty seats in the 300 section and the seats in the 100’s with a fat douche from 45 min outside of New Orleans screaming who day in my face.

  29. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    Home games would be better if they were attended by Bucs fans.

  30. Buchead407 Says:

    Jamies will be a beast give him some more game reps and get a center who can snap the damn ball still better than mariota looked

  31. 1st Bucfan Says:

    First outing not bad not good. OL not good.
    RB’s not big enough to penitrate the defence in fact they couldn’t get past the OL.. Next week.
