The Blossoming Of Jameis

August 26th, 2015

Joe understands the confusion from Bucs fans who have, for generations now, been subjected to quarterback standards from the likes of Jack Thompson, Trent Dilfer, Son of Bob and Josh McClown.

No, Bucs fans, those standards are not what decent quarterback play looks like.

Joe sure hopes the first quarter of Monday’s night’s game against the Bungles is a harbinger of things to come. Yes, folks, what America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, did Monday night, well, that’s what a quarterback looks like.

Former NFL safety Rodney Harrison and the creator, curator and overall guru of Pro Football Talk, the great Mike Florio, offer their observations of Jameis in this NBC Sports video.

    If Jameis is “Blossoming”, does that mean we need to start calling the o-line “Round Up”??????

  2. Buccfan37 Says:

    Round up does kill the weeds. It would be easier to just pick them, no nasty chemical spraying.

  3. Stanglassman Says:

    Jameis run wasn’t that dangerous. He should just admit he doesn’t like Jameis as a person. I saw Russel Wilison and Tim Tebo do the exact same thing this week. Not to mention TT had a guy wide open and choose to run it.

  4. bucwild007 Says:

    I don’t get Florio’s sticking point of getting injured…. Rodney was right by sticking on the positive points.

  5. Joe Cool Says:

    Nah man. Fertilizer.

  6. Bculaw Says:

    If Jameis playing with too much intensity and desire is the biggest negative you can claim about his play, then we are in for a helluva ride as Bucs fans. Guy makes reads and throws that you can’t teach, and brings an attitude that this offense has NEVER seen before. He will have some bumps in the road, but he has the potential to make the Bucs offense special in the long run.

  7. R.O. Says:

    Reall really needs to clean up his foot work. Crossing fingers, however we won’t know what JW is until the middle of his 3rd year. Need to remember he is only 21.

  8. Charlie V Says:

    Mike Florio, Skip Bayless, Paul Finbaum, Colin Cowherd and their type are nothing but media whores. They will say anything to get a click. Rodney was being honest and telling it straight. A foreign concept to Mike Florio.

  9. pick6 Says:

    still plenty of work to do mechanically, but he already has shown the type of poise and real QB ability (as in read the defense, find the mismatch, get the ball to the right spot) we’ve only seen from the likes of salty veterans like brad Johnson and Jeff Garcia in this century. and he is way ahead of those 2 from an arm strength standpoint.

    Joe is dead on – the likes of chris simms, josh freeman, josh mccown, etc (out of kindness, i won’t go into the prior century to further make the point) have left Bucs fans with the lowest standard for QB play in all of football. i hope jameis spoils us on offense like brooks, sapp, and co spoiled us on defense

  10. pick6 Says:

    *not just a low standard of QB play, but a general undervaluing of the QB role in general

  11. Waterboy Says:

    Mike Florio has always published negative articles towards Winston on his site. Even when it’s not intended to be an article focused on something negative he always finds something negative to bring up in the article regarding Winston.

  12. daldevs Says:

    Florio’s previous attempt to grasp at straws regarding doubts about Winston centered around him having the ability to keep up with the “athletic ability” needed to play QB in the NFL. Yes, he said that as recently as July. (Because Brady and Manning are the epitome of having the requisite “athletic ability” to play the position in the NFL).

    Now that Jameis has pooped all over that ridiculous argument, he’s on to his next ridiculous argument to downplay Jameis. The guy can’t help himself. Hates Jameis too much I guess.

  13. Buc1987 Says:

    Waterboy..that’s not surprising after listening to this video, watching his facial reactions and the shaking of his head.

    He acts as if no QB in NFL history has ever dove into end zone, yet it happens all the time.

    Florio…is EXACTLY the type of media us NOLES fans speak about. You’re right once again about the media Stan. Why doesn’t he just come out and say he doesn’t like him as a person?

  14. milenko Says:

    But did he die?

  15. csidedave Says:

    Unfortunately Jameis IS going to get hurt on occasion. But most likely not by running but by getting hit in the pocket as he is throwing. I think he is going to be a top QB but will have nagging knee and ankle issues throughout his career because he does stand tough in the pocket and will take some hits while in his throwing motion.

    We do need to keep a solid back up in place. He will be called on occasionally.

  16. DB55 Says:

    For this man doeth many miracles. If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him. #Preach

    JOE’S Bromance with “JOHNNY FOOTBALL” will be over Saturday night!

    Lets hope Joe does not go into depression on Sunday morning…

  18. mac Says:

    Winston looked solid Monday night but I’m worried about all the hits he is taking… He has only played in 2 preseason games and he already has a sprained ankle… I hope he can stay healthy enough for a 16 game season plus playoffs and preseason…

    Our offensive line better improve or it will be MG8 time by game 3…

  20. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    People this time of year have “delusions of grandeur” when it comes to their teams this time of year.

    Winston still needs a lot of work

  21. Dreambig Says:

    This is the NFL, its a violent game and every player will get hurt at one time or another. One of the NFL shows was asking Terrel Davis about Doug Martin’s improved performance and how do you go about not getting hurt. TDs comment was that you play the game and don’t think about it! That is exactly right! Play the damn game and don’t run out of bounds 1 yard short of first down because someone might hit you. Thats how you win instead of loose.

  22. Pickgrin Says:

    Florio is such a Richard anytime he talks about Winston. You can’t stop Jameis from playing like Jameis. He will go all out in a backyard pick-up game. If Winston gets hurt doing his damndest to help his team win or score or get a 1st down – then so be it. That’s football. Next man up.

    Jameis is big and strong and can take hits with the best of them. He has never missed games due to injury. He’s also insistent and able to play well nicked as he showed last year playing (and winning) quite a few games with a pretty badly sprained ankle.

    I wonder what Florio will find bad to say in a couple years when Winston is tearing up the league and keeping DC’s up late at night worrying.

  23. mac Says:

    @ pick

    I hope your right… Preseason game #2 and he is already walking with a limp… Not good… This is the NFL not ACC… Big difference…

  24. DavidbigBucsFan Says:

    This guy sounds just like our very own bucrealist that is when it comes to Lovie. Dude is so negative that even when he tries to make it sound like he’s trying to be positive it all is still negative.

    Jameis did look good. I didn’t see the wind up on his lasers and he didn’t look skittish even under heavy pressure. However gotta say he has some ugalee foot work. Coaches better work on that like they did his release. We saw the most important thing needed. ………growth. He keeps doing that each game then Bucs fans we have a winner!
