The Heat Was On … Jameis

August 4th, 2015

McCoy Camp

The steamy fields of One Buc Palace were broiling this morning for Day 4 of training camp.

And after two interceptions by Jameis Winston, in his first three throws of 11-on-11 work, America’s Quarterback was on the hot seat.

The first pick was an overthrow on the right flank to Vincent Jackson. No. 83 didn’t exactly give a midseason effort, but he probably didn’t realize Alterraun Verner had broken behind him and snagged the ball just inside the sideline and his momentum took him out of bounds.

Two snaps later, Jameis fired complete — to Lavonte David. An eight-yard pass going the wrong way.

The nearly packed stands were now quiet. Fans wanted to see if Jameis would recover, following a similar start to Tuesday’s practice.

Jameis did. But the learning and struggling continues.

Stick with Joe through the day for all kinds of stuff, including video, out of today’s practice. And don’t forget to catch Joe live on WDAE-AM 620 at 5 p.m. It’s the “JoeBucsFan Hour” with Steve Duemig.

    The facts that our fields are “Broiling” in the a.m hours are enough reason to get that indoor facility. Players already know what they’re going to be up against with the weather on sundays. No need to take away needed energy and focus during practice. I’ glad the indoor facility is in the works. I think that facility will be the key to the team taking full advantage of the heat on game day.

    The first int sounds like an overthrow not a mental mistake or poor choice of where to go with the ball. Stuff like that happens to all QB’s.

    The pass LVD picked seems to be a mental error. We learn from our mistakes and so hopefully Fameis is beginning to figure it out.

    Really? They were still in the old One Buc Place when they won the Super Bowl and did training camp at Disney. Outdoor weight rooms, airport noise, offices in trailers, and no cafe on site. Now they have one of the nicest in the NFL. They haven’t done too well since the new Palace was built. I’m all in favor of the indoor facility, but practice facilities don’t usually equate to regular season results.

    I heard from sources that Lovie has been walking around with his chest stuck out! He is very happy that “His” defense is dominating something!!!

    hope lovie is throwin his version of the kitchen sink at jameis… jameis will be good…. peyton sucked it up year 1

    I think after about half way through the season everyone will be asking why we picked winston.

  7. JoeNUTS Says:

    I have been saying this to anyone that would listen pre draft…neither JW or MM are pro ready….buckle your seatbelt to another less than 5 win season.

    This organization has bad owners/mgmt….who care more about money in their pocket (where is that new scoreboard promised for RayJay?) than on the field product. How much under the cap were we again and we didnt reach for any OL (Evan Mathis) after last year. Incognito would start at RG easily but were more worried about PR. If you expect rookies to come in and dominate….your not paying attention to the NFL closely enough as it is rare.

    I wish a journalist would have the balls to confront them (Glazers) at a presser but most are there to kiss butt for later favors. Pisses me off.

    @Trob…..I wasnt suggesting that they will get better just becasue of an indoor facility. I think there are days where a little heat incorporared with practice will do some good. But the guys are only human and its hot as hell outside. Let them practice just enough outside to stay acclimated but enough inside to keep charged. I work outsise every summer and it drains you when your in direcr sunlight all day. Im not talking about working outdoors in shade. Im talking full sun 1 oclock NO SHADE!!!! ALL FREIKIN DAY!!! It gets old. When the pats or packers or the saints come down the heat doesnt seem to help us win a whole lot. It may not have had that effect back in 2002 but that season the team played 8 out of 16 games 4 oclock or later. I think they are lucky to have one 4 oclcock and the mandatory prime time game as bad as they have been. Im just saying practicing every day in the heat foes not create an advantage for the team. I think the indoor facility can be beneficial with the training process.

    This is gonna be ugly, I predict a 40 interception year for our “savior”

  10. Tampa Tony Says:

    Lovie where was all the exotic blitz packages when the Bucs played back up qbs last year?

  11. Casual Observer Says:

    No worries about all the INTs. We’ve got MG in the wings.

  12. Rrsrq Says:

    This reminds me of his first half starts at FSU, but I still trust he will be ready

  13. LakelandBuc Says:

    No need to panic or to point fingers, this is practice a learning process. When the season start Jameis Winston will be ready, i’m predicting a 30/ 10 season for him.Right now the coaches are feeling the players looking for strengths and weakness.

  14. JoeNUTS Says:

    I can tell you that if your throwing INTs in practice then he will be throwing them in the games. The game speed of the NFL is hard to really replicate in practice as it is. I cant stand Brady but ask him how important practice is to getting ready for pre season, which is 2 weeks away. This guy takes every snap like he is in the SB.

    I really think the NFL has done a disservice to the players with all these practice rules. These guys need time with pads on to get ready…and 2 weeks is really not enough. I want to say in the 80-90s it was 4-5 weeks with pads (Joe probably can recall better than I) until the pussing of the league. The players union didn’t help either on this issue. Once the season starts, they may be in pads once a week (maybe) after Sunday so its hard to get better during the season.

    I love my BUCS but this is going to be a long year…just like last year. For those of you claiming JW alone is going to bring us out of the cellar because you saw him do it as FSU…have no clue about NFL football or dont live in NFL reality. The level of football is simply incomparable to NCAA. College is kids these are grown men with nasty tattooed on them. We could have used some nasty on that OL with Incognito or Mathis. Are we really going to let the J-E-T-S outbid us for a real O lineman? I see GMC having a good year but that may be it. I hope Im wrong but my gut and football knowledge screams otherwise.

  15. MGL Says:

    As an FSU fan, I’m a Jameis fan and was excited for him to go #1, but I’d be lying if I said I was happy with the staff in Tampa. I have never been impressed with Lovie. I hope Koetter is the loudest and best influence on Jameis. If Lovie has anything to do with him, he will struggle a ton. If Lovie gets out of the way, he will struggle some but will grow as the season goes on, and he will end up a very good NFL QB. I see him in as a Favre or Roethlisberger type – smart, prepared, willing to take chances, tough.
