Don’t Dare Blame Jameis Winston

September 27th, 2015

Jameis Winston 2Here come the stat nerds and Jameis Winston haters claiming America’s Quarterback had a terrible game today.

Jameis actually played solid football. Go watch the damn film.

You’ll see Jameis come out fast, just like he’s asked to do. You’ll see A+ throws in that first half, as well as A-list drops by Jameis’ targets.

Sure, Jameis’ touch failed him here and there, and his one interception was a dumb, needless throw. But look at the game as a whole. Look at the pocket poise and the quality of the deep balls.

Lovie Smith had plenty of rough things to say about his entire team after today’s loss in Houston, especially the sour quality of his run defense, but even Lovie was quick to say Jameis played good football.

Joe will not succumb to the stat nerds focused on Jameis finishing 17-for-36 for 261 yards and one touchdown and one pick. They’ll bellow all night about that poor completion percentage.

Joe’s never been a stat slave, which is why Joe (and NFL executives) wasn’t impressed by Mike Glennon’s 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 13 starts as a rookie. Simply stated, Glennon looked like a backup through most of that 2013 season, which is why the Bucs weren’t wowed by a trade offer for him.

Jameis, in his last two games, looks like a quality NFL starter at 21 years old. The needle is pointing up for Jameis.

Deny it at your own peril.

    I Saw a BUNCH of missed throws, but the blame can be spread wide

  2. Buc Neckid Says:

    Jameis’ biggest mistake was keying on Evans too many times.

  3. NewTampaChris Says:

    Agree. He played well enough to score more than 9 points. Lots of drops, very little in the running game, more penalties. And my all-time favorite — simple running play that loses 4 yards because the OL gets blown up. Also, a DL that gets dominated by a bunch of scrubs on the opposing OL.

  4. This Guy Right Here Says:

    Until we get a REAL HC, like Gruden, that can LIGHT A FCKIN FIRE under a team???? Im done with this sh!t..

  5. MTM Says:

    Winstons mistakes weren’t the reason the Bucs lost. Porous defense as usual, f*cktard kicker and WR drops did the Bucs in. Why Lovie continued to trot the Credinza out there after he missed kick after kick was baffling.

  6. Luther Says:

    Jameis made a few bad throws but he threw a lot of well placed darts that were dropped. He had us in a position to win and that more than you can ask from a rookie. I blame the special teams, defense, receivers and coaches.

  7. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I was very impressed with Winston. He’s a rookie QB facing one of the best defensive line’s in football, on the road no less. He had multiple drops. He wasn’t deadly accurate, but he had several perfect passes that weren’t hauled in. He didn’t get much help from his receivers. He had absolutely no running game. He wasn’t perfect, but he certainly wasn’t the reason we lost. The only people that would say otherwise are the same douche bags that criticize everything he does, and can’t get over the fact we didn’t draft Mariota.

  8. bucrightoff Says:

    Jameis isn’t faultless, and going to Evans for just about half his attempts makes it predictable. Jameis gets a C+ for today, not great but not awful, just ok. But no one gets better than C+ today so he was just par for the day.

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    1-12 on 3rd down…….lets be at least a bit intellectually honest here……some of that was on the QB.

    I think the game was lost on many fronts…….Run Defense, WR drops, QB misses….lack of a running game…..terrible kicking…..

    And….we were struck very early again by an awful call….the OPI on Evans….

  10. tmaxcon Says:

    Jameis was far from perfect but hardly the cause of loss. Once again a poorly prepared team coached by Lovie Smith took the field and made mistake after mistake. Fundamentals were horrible and that is all on the coaches

  11. Educated Bucs Fan Says:

    I thought he played well. Missing the kicks was the decisive point in the game for the Bucs.

  12. The Buc Realist Says:


    Don’t know why you had to bring in and trash MG8 to defend Jameis on this one??? And considering who MG8 (just a 3rd round rookie) had around him as a rookie, it is still impressive.

  13. lightningbuc Says:

    JABOO was really bad!


  14. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Koetter has to take some responsibility for playcalling on 3rd downs…..too many difficult throws….not enough short safe passes….(we dropped a couple of them)….but 3rd & 6 & we go for the TD…….3rd & 4 and we go downfield.

  15. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    Jameis played well today. The drops were terrible. At lease seven, which would have put him at 64% and over 300 yards. The attacks on him are ignorant. The fact remains, this team is 3-16 under Lovie and Licht. It commits double digit penalties virtually every game. It plays inconsistently every game. The “stars” don’t shine, and there are virtually no impact players. You wanna destroy America’s quarterback? Maintain the status quo.

  16. Skyline Crew Says:

    Fine, then don’t you dare blame Evans. Look at the game as a whole. Sure his hands failed him a few times, but overall he was great. See I can do it to. Bunch a BS by some F’n Winston homers.

  17. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    One of the few times I agree with Realist

  18. This Guy Right Here Says:

    Fcuk Lovie Smith!


  19. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Common’ guys….there is a reason why we missed FGs… have to kick them to miss them……we were 1-12 on 3rd down…..we didn’t sustain any TD drives except for the short field after the interception……our offense stalled time after time…..give Winston a pass if it make you feel good…

    I am fine with his performance and cut him some slack as a rookie on a bad football team…..but I not going blind.

  20. This Guy Right Here Says:

    Btw, To the Run D, and to Evans:


  21. Buccfan37 Says:

    Overall subpar performance by the Bucs who are not as good as the Texans are on their home field. Nobody made the plays that could lead the Bucs to a win. Just as I expected before the game began.

  22. ATrain Says:

    Anyone who has been on here knows I’m not a Winston Fan.

    But Winston can’t make WR catch the ball..Hitting receivers in the hands and they drop the ball.,,,That’s BS.

    Winston also played with Heart, blocking and even pushing a LB when he came in late…Some fight in this QB. Wish Lovie would learn that

  23. tickrdr Says:

    I try to watch the game again on replay before I comment on JW3’s INACCURACY throwing the football. Therefore, I direct your attention to the late third quarter against the Saints where on consecutive plays, JW3 missed a wide-open ASJ, and then an open VJax; all from about the 7 or 8 yardline, i.e. about a 10 yard throw.
    There were several poorly thrown balls today as well. Two of his first three games have less than 50% completion rate.


  24. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Agree totally with TBBF’s summation…

    I think the game was lost on many fronts…….Run Defense, WR drops, QB misses….lack of a running game…..terrible kicking…..

    It was truly a team loss. If we must look to find a bright spot, it’s that we were in this game well into the 4th quarter despite a TEAM effort that was dismal.

    Another bright spot…Koetter called an awesome game and Fameis largely had plenty of time thanks to Koetter’s creativity and throwing so much on first down.

    Our run blocking was below part but overall the OL played well in blocking for Fameis against a killer DL.

    To say Fameis was the reason we lost would be hyperbole. But to say he gave us a chance to win is to say that our defense gave us a chance. Neither the D nor Fameis were horrid, but neither had a good game either.

  25. This Guy Right Here Says:

    But in all seriousness, Fcuk Lovie Smith… Already-In-Retirement-Mode getting payed either way so could give a fcuk less…

    A 20th century HC, trying to hang in ’15??? …fcuk outta here!

  26. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I don’t think anyone has blamed Winston for this loss……this is a red herring!!!

    It’s simply to spark controversy and it worked…..

    Even after being provoked….noone is blaming Winston for the loss.

    Nice try!!!

  27. Aceofaerospace Says:

    I just want a real coach. Teaser wins like last week only go so far. There’s no excuse for our defensive play. Fire Lovie while there’s still time to save the season.

  28. ben Says:

    Joe .Your wrong and won’t admit it . why not look up the qb stats after 3 games between M.M. and Winston… M.M. looks more like the qb of the future …

  29. tickrdr Says:

    As an aside, the only team we have beaten has not beaten anyone else, and the teams that have beaten us, have not managed to beat ANYONE else. As I have noted previously, it is very likely a good thing that the Jags, Redskins, and Bears are on our schedule this year.


  30. T in Orlando Says:


  31. JabooBuc Says:

    I’ll say it again, I can’t believe some of you people. This kid stands in the pocket as a rookie and balls out. Rookies are going to make mistakes. I prefer them to be the occasional bad decision or inaccurate thrown ball rather than the deer in the headlight QB who is too scared to pull the trigger. This kid has the same type of attitude that Sapp, Brooks and Lynch had in that he is here to win and not just cash a paycheck.

    Some of the vets on this team need to start stepping up and making plays. That means making the routine catch when it hits you in the hands and not looking at your QB like he’s high when he overthrows you. See Mike Evans.

  32. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    If Brindza lost this game for us then he won with 14 pts vs NO…..

    Keep the kid….he deserves another shot…..

  33. BrianBucs Says:

    Either Joe is desperately fishing for internet clicks for his advertisers or he had way too meny adult beverages before the game because even Helen Keller could see that Winston was below average today. Passes were off target, he stared down receivers and at times looked confused. But that is to be expected from a young rookie. He’s got a long way to go and a lot to learn, and only experience will get him that. Let’s all just hope that “America’s Quarterback” doesn’t turn out to be “Americs’s Bust”

  35. poor glennon Says:

    He is showing promise. You can see they want him to work on his footwork. He’s standing in the pocket and setting his feet now. Still has those 5 incompletion’s a game. That the franchise QBs make everytime. Meanwhile Mariota is leaving no doubt. About who the #1 pick should’ve been. That guy is a slam dunk. He’s a 60%-70% passer….right now!! He hasn’t even run yet. Mariota has thrown that team on his back every week. He’s a top 10 QB. Winston is around 26th.

  36. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Get rid of Lovie NOW…. Houston is garbage… lovie couldnt light a fire with this team if he had 30 gallons of gas and a match… jameis will be good and the new center had some fire i liked it… send lovie packing

    While you’re at it, let’s compare JW3 against Glennon once Jameis completes his first five games. After all, Glennon had 8TDs and only 3 INTs at that point, while playing against the #1(Seattle), #2(Carolina), and # 6(Arizona) defenses for 2013.

    tickrdr (voted trade down in every poll)

  38. Sentamentalist Says:

    This team just hasn’t been fun to watch for years. Many years. Sorry Lovie, but this team doesn’t look good and we’ll be talking about the draft in no time. No progress as a team. Fine with Jameis. Hope my college team does okay. Miss the Dungy and Gruden years.

  39. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I am much more concerned at how Houston…..with a beat up/injured Oline and backup RB were able to run the ball on us at will….and we put very little pressure on the QB…

    That really bothers me.

  40. Ed Says:

    Pro Football is a joke, the ref’s have taken over the game. Every other play is a flag. A player can be in the end zone and a yellow flag appears out of know where. Was at one time a good game.

  41. CC Says:

    Evan’s 4 drops. ..Jackson 1 drop…Myers 1 drop….Sheppard 1 drop…Murphy 1 drop.

  42. The Buc Realist Says:


    There is only one way to settle this issue!!! Bring on the Jameis Winston Confidence Poll !!!!!!!!

  43. BrianBucs Says:

    During Lovie’s post game presser, he again said “We’re close, very close”. To what? Getting fired?

  44. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    People can keep slamming Lovie and I get it. But he had this team in position to make the plays. LVD missed two critical tackles on consecutive plays.

    The penalities are unforgivable but I swear the officiating just suckks this year. It’s worst than the NHL!!! The first call on ME was a touch foul that didn’t impact the play…he didn’t shove off for position…he slapped away the hand/arm of the guy trying to hand check him.

    Koetter also placed his players in great position to win…receivers dropping balls…Fameis going totally brain dead on the interception…nothing Joe can write excuses that int. Somebody needs to call the kid aside and explain it to him. Jameis you came into this league with two glaring questions. One was for off field activity. OK you grew up and so good on you Fameis….the other bad rap was you are an interception machine…it’s one thing to try and make a play but ints like the one your threw today are simply UNACCEPTABLE!!!

    I do not blame this loss on #3! I accept that he’s a rookie playing in his third game in a very hostile loud environment. He was getting hit repeatedly after throwing the ball..several times late..if we had done that flags would have flown….but given all that he simply had a bad game.

    And so big deal. In three games he’s been inconsistent…good Fameis and bad Fameis…he’s a rookie and got NO help from his receivers and so I’ll just write this game off to another “learning experience”. Again I thought Koetter called a great game and the OL gave #3 enough time to do some serious damage…when he hit the receivers they had the dropsies…and let’s be honest there were several open receivers where Fameis was inconsistent. Remember the first weeks of training camp when Joe and the media were worried about bad days of practice only to come back the next day and claim #3 had a terrific practice. He’s a rookie…inconsistency is probably going to plague him through most of the year.

    BTW not hating or bashing #3…still love the kid…just seeing what actually happened.

  45. Clodhopper Says:

    Winston did what rookies do. He had some great throws but he also had his share of bad throws. It was more than just a throw here and there. He had actual accuracy problems on some of those throws today.

  46. The Buc Realist Says:

    The Buc Realist Says:
    September 27th, 2015 at 6:46 pm
    I thought I saw a little growth in Jameis! His clock in his head was on point. ( that is why no sacks) He was under duress a lot but felt the pressure correctly and was moving to give a little more time. He was on the ground what seemed to be any pass over 8 yards. But given the quicker clock he had this game he was quickly scanning the field.

    I really hope this offseason he finds a QB coach that can tighten up his spiral. I think that could really help when he does not have the time to properly set his base on his quicker throws. ( a lot of the inaccurate throws were off of a one foot throw or a quick setup of the base).

  47. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @St. Pete

    I’m not giving Koetter a total pass today… sustained drives for a TD, 1-12 on 3rd down…..I’ll say for me, the jury is out on some of his playcalling….one thing for sure, we didn’t execute…..and he is a vast improvement on Arroyo…

  48. BucIt941 Says:

    I am starting to think Maybe Koetter would be a better HC for this team after this year and we find a DC who can actually build a scheme around all the talent the Defense actually has to offer.

  49. BrianBucs Says:

    @ Poor Glennon

    Even though I agree with you 100%, Winston is our QB here now and we snould support him and root for him to do well.

    That being said, some of the Buc’s drops today were because the ball was not on target

  50. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo thinks the Bucs would have won today with Martin Gramatica & Jeff Garcia”

  51. DefenseRules Says:

    You win as a team and you lose as a team.

    Today the Bucs stunk it up in all 3 phases … plus in coaching. They had plenty of opportunities to win, but didn’t take advantage.

    Bucs are a young team with decent talent but lots of learning to do before they know how to win consistently. Hopefully this coaching staff is the one that can teach them how to do that.

    Through 16 games last season and 3 games this season, I’m beginning to wonder however.

  52. poor glennon Says:

    Or linebackers that get the ball square in the chest could…….make the pick

  53. JabooBuc Says:

    Tampabaybucsfan, I would go back and look at the execution of the 3rd down play calls. I thought he called a great game but many of the drops and bad throws came on that down. This includes the interception. While it was a bad pass by Winston it was a deep pass on 3rd down and long so somewhat excusable.

  54. Tampabaybucfan Says:


    Agree….mostly execution problems….I do like the play action on 1st down calls…..we are less predictible…

  55. No better way to say it Says:

    I think 4 of those drops were on 3rd down.. If those catches ( and they werent circus ability required catches either ) were made then that one conversion looks a bit better at 5 conversions.

    It was just an awful game for Evans.

  56. bucsbedabest Says:

    Jameis Winston was not the problem today. The Texans exposed a plethora problems this team. I wonder why Winston was keying on Evans so much? Maybe it was because the Texans had their best shutdown first round pick CB Kevin Johnson on VJAX? Which leaves who as a target for Winston? Myers? Stocker? Murphy? At least Sims caught the ball. With no running game, no kicking game, no defense and the dropped passes Winston was on his own. How about the number one issue going into the game? The OL really stepped up today only giving up one, yes one sack, against JJ and Clowney. No comment on the kicker and a defense who were outplayed by a back-up QB, back-up RB and a bunch of scrubs on the OL?

  57. Destinjohnny Says:

    3 fought hard and was a gamer and that does set a great tone for the squad.
    I do worry about his accuracy though. I just don’t know how you teach that.
    But it’s only his 3rd game going against the best line whilst playing behind the worst line.
    Wideouts are getting no separation either.

  58. Ed Says:

    He didnt lose it but he also had many chances and could not win it for us. For sure he didnt have the worst performance and hes getting close I think he just needed to calm down a bit. He has a ton of heart no question.

  59. JabooBuc Says:

    I’m hoping this kicker has a very short memory and this does not linger. I thought he had a bright future but today was just bad.

  60. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Don’t get your knickers in a wad, Joe. This whole team is just not that good…including our Coach. I’m afraid not much is going to change until we get a new regime at 1 Buc.

  61. Greg Schiano Says:

    Maybe all the Jameis stat nerds would give him a break if you stopped with the “America’s Quarterback” crap. The coaching has been and will be the issue with the Buc’s until a change is made. I do not believe anyone should pick on JW as he clearly can’t take the criticism. Maybe everyone could just talk about football if we were not force fed “America’s Quarterback” and gunslinger and most pro ready QB in the draft for the past six months.

    The defense remains the big problem and it really does not matter how well JW plays if we do not get a coach. Pagano stated today he was leaving Indy….Maybe he will be available.

    The hard part is the game was winnable if not for coaching. Coaching is the biggest weak spot on the team.

  62. Buccos Says:

    I have seen all that I need to see and heard all that I need to hear. We f’d up the #1 pick in the draft. We chose the wrong guy. Sorry to burst your bubble but it sure looks like Winston is a bust! That’s ok, though. We can pick first again next year. Too bad Mariota won’t be there.

  63. Greg Schiano Says:

    Playoffs!! Playoffs!! You heard Joe’s boy Lovie tonight! We are close!! We are only 2 games out of first place in the division and ony 2 games out of playoff contention!! Playoffs!! Playoffs!!

    Maybe if someone with JW’s super human strength could pry the Big Poodle’s lips off of Lovie Smith’s vertical smile…then maybe the media would stop with the America’s Quarterback blah blah blah and critique the lack of a game plan, the lack of serious game plan adjustments at half time, and the totally uninspired play by all facets of the team tonight.

    With that in mind, Fameis Porky is the QB1 and he is tasked with leading the teams, inspiring everyone to be better, making his team mates better, but he has not found that will yet. I agree with the “average” for a rookie assessment.

    Fire Lovie Now….send him packing with the Big Poodle!

  64. WalkdaPlank Says:

    I don’t think Jameis had a bad game, but it’s funny how Jameis is given a pass whereas if Glennon where out there on that field and had thrown the ball like that he’d be getting trashed on this site.

  65. tbaybuc Says:

    He seems to me to be off on the slants and outs > 10 yards or so. Not sure if its timing or what. the deeper passes, back shoulder fades and stuff he hits well in my observation. also, our corners seem to just have horrible technique. Any team that wants to eat us alive should just throw slants all day.

  66. Clint Says:

    Throwing the stats out he wasn’t zipping the ball, maybe he never has and i never saw it at FSU and imagined it; but he also missed throws in what was a close one score game and of course threw the crucial pick that set bad houston up for a score…. he had a D+ or C- game. I own his jersey.

  67. Bo Says:

    I was impressed with his midrange and long throws, short passing was suspect at times..was the same at FSU.. all in all not bad for his 3rd NFL game! Jameis will be fine, this team is 2-3 good drafts away from being a contender! Patience young grasshoppers…

  68. SuperSam Says:

    I didn’t see anything special, nothing Mike Glennon or Josh McCown couldn’t do…. ill even go as far as to say Mike Evans and McCown had a way better connection than Evans and Winston. SIMPLE AS THAT.

  69. BucFan20 Says:

    Well. The General seems to have his panties in a bunch. Oh but wait. If things don’t go right in say what, about another 12 games. He will jump off that train and be ready to ride the next one.

  70. BucFan20 Says:

    3-16 and waiting on it!

  71. Posey99 Says:

    Stat: Jameis Winston – Loss

    Sounds like you’re blaming the defense a little… Maybe if you just relax a little and stop treating him like he’s your kid and just say the truth: he wasn’t good enough.

  72. DB55 Says:

    Is there a rule in the buc playbook that say Jameis can only throw passes of 20 yards or more?

  73. JabooBuc Says:

    In case you were wondering, Marcus is also 1-2 with no wins in their division.

  74. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:


  75. cmurda Says:

    JW didn’t play his best, however nobody would be criticizing Jameis at all if half the drops didn’t happen today. The completion percentage would have been on par, over 300 yards and likely at least 1 more TD. By the way, the pass to V Jax was perfect but Vjax couldn’t get his second foot down. His deep ball is extremely accurate but he needs to relax and make the short throws accurately as well. He will continue to get better. Winston is the least of our concerns. We haven’t done anything special running the ball for 2 straight weeks. Becoming 1 dimensional isn’t exactly helping matters.

  76. Jason McLaurin Says:

    You Damn right nobody can blame Winston when the fgs were being missed left and right all day and not even mention the drop passes. I think this team got significantly better and Winston developed mentally. Mike Evans developed helluva chemistry today as well. I like the game plan and the development of Winston so far. Today mihht have been the best yet and hes getting better and more confident by the game. Now its time for a 300 yard passing game if the receivers make catches in the home game next week###play4WINStonfight4LOViE

  77. cmurda Says:

    One more observation. Don’t forget about the big play to Evans that was called back on a phantom PI call against M.E.

  78. iamabuc Says:

    After the game , I overheard Lovie blaming me for loss. “Iamabuc jinx our team today. He predicted we would win by only 3 field goals, Texans 0. So guess what? That was exactly what we needed today. Iamabuc should leave predictions for the experts.” LMAO

  79. BrianBucs Says:

    Jameis Winston – at this point is “America’s Underachiever”

  80. Cannon Says:

    This kid is going to be special, someday.

  81. mike10 Says:

    Jameis had good throws but was often high or behind his receiver.

  82. J Says:

    Jaboo is faultless



  83. J Says:

    If he connected passes on red zone we wouldn’t need field gkals

  84. Ryan Says:

    Missed some throws on third downs. Receivers also let him down big time.

  85. MadMax Says:

    They need to play Humphries more and target him more….kid can catch!

  86. Johnny Dejay Says:

    How can we blame a rookie kicker? It’s just one game!

  87. mike Says:

    We scored 9 points and qb had protection, blame the qb.

  88. LongSeasons Says:

    Look at the film Joe. Jameis missed wide open receivers with inaccurate passes when he had all the time in the world to throw.

    Is Jameis solely to blame? No. The entire team got their butts handed to them. But Jameis does get some of the blame.

    As I said in another thread, it will take Jameis a year to develop. I expect that he will make some great throws and some head scratchers. Yesterday had more head scratchers. The interception he threw was on him. He didn’t look off his receiver and missed the defender who was in position to jump the route. Most 3rd down throws were off target.

    Others to blame:
    WRs dropped too many passes.
    Defense got the ball run down their throat. This team couldn’t stop butter right now.
    Defense couldn’t get off the field on 3rd down.
    Kicker missed 4 kicks. Was this the kicker or the holder?
    Too many penalties.
    Texans. They played a very good game.
    Coaching wise we were out coached.

    “We didn’t block very well so we made up for it by not tackling.”
    –John McKay

    Hopefully Jameis and the rest of the team will learn from this loss.

  89. Kennagetsome Says:

    He couldn’t hit an out route to save his life. Every throw was either high, low,or behind the receiver or to far in front of the receiver. Even on the wide open slant routes he kept throwing behind the receiver. He can throw the deep ball bur just like our kicker he needs lots of work on the short plays. Who cares if you can throw the ball 70 yards if you can throw at 10 yard pass with accuracy. Plus I don’t understand why they kept running the ball at JJ Watt. And they only used the screen play a couple times when we scored a touchdown on 1 of them. If you can’t run the ball you have to throw screens or short throws. Yes there was lots of drops but how can you expect the receivers to be consistent if the passes aren’t consistent? He missed more passes then the receivers dropping the ball. Last but not least the kicker has to go. I don’t consider different you can kick a 100 yard field goal if you condidareant make an extra point.

    I will not go out to say that he had a great day. I agree a lot of his throws were dropped. Hopefully Evans is shaking off some rust. Winston looked great in the first half. And got robbed of his first big bomb to Evans (Push off, yeah right.) But the second half he had a handful of throws that were a little high. Was definitely off a little in the second half. Also looked like his Chemistry with Evans was a little off. I saw some promising things from the offense this week, aside from the run game. We just aren’t totally clicking yet.

    I will say that the rookie has looked better than Luck has this season though. The Colts look terrible right now

    This game actually put me down on Jameis, I cant recall watching a game where a saw a QB consistently miss receivers like we saw JW do Sunday. very very worried now about his future. as much as you can read defenses if you cant put the ball on the D#mn target you arent going to be successful in this league or any other

  93. LongSeasons Says:

    Jameis was pressing yesterday. Young quarterbacks tend to do that. Once Jameis learns to play the game naturally, then he will do better. I guess that will be year 2.

    Bad footwork,accuracy issues……this guy is Josh Freeman all over again. But he’ll never have a 25TD-6INT season. I mean they could be twins. Both are more accurate throwing long. Freeman’s anchor leg was his issue. Winston open face baseball throws too many balls. We left the next Randall Cunningham on the board and took the next Ryan Leaf
