Jameis > Drew Brees?

Stat geeks will point to numbers that show America's Quarterback is having a better year than a future Hall of Famer.

Stat geeks will point to numbers that show America’s Quarterback is having a better year than a future Hall of Famer.

Now Joe has made no bones over the fact he thinks quarterback ratings are the biggest pile of feces this side of a southern Illinois Heifer pasture.

Any hatched stat that claims David Garrard was a better quarterback than Roger Staubach should be banned from public discourse as a simple matter of national security.

But Joe knows there are stubborn types out there, and that if a stat says so, it has to be true. So for this crowd, Joe brings some interesting information via urinal picture-takingvideo game-playingTaylor Swift-listeningpickpocket-thwartingBucs-uniform-frowningAllie-LaForce-smittenBig-Ten-Network-hatingpedestrian-bumpingolive oil-lappingpopcorn-munchingcoffee-slurpingfried-chicken-eatingoatmeal-lovingcircle-jerkingbeer-chuggingcricket-watchingscone-loathingcollege football-naïvebaseball-box-score-readingNPR-honkfilthy-hotel-stayingfight-instigatingbarista-training Peter King of theMMQB.com and NBC Sports fame, who brings word that Jameis has a higher quarterback rating than the future Hall of Fame quarterback who guides the Saints.

And though Jameis Winston was suitably honored to be playing a guy he’s watched on TV since he was a kid (“That’s Drew Brees over there!” he said after the game), he shouldn’t genuflect too much. After two games, Winston has a better passer rating than the great Brees. Strange days indeed in New Orleans.

Is Joe in the tank for Jameis? Of course. Does Joe think Jameis is better than Brees? Let’s not get carried away quite yet.

Jameis very well may enter Canton as Louis Murphy believes. But slow down. It’s just his second game.

    As nole likes to say. “Wait for it”

  2. 813bucboi Says:

    continue to improve and we’ll be fine…GO BUCS!!!

  3. Buccfan37 Says:

    Much too early to make that comparison. How about them Panthers? At the Saints next week, here comes 3-0 heading to Tampa the following week. Yikes! Talk about pressure. The Saints might upset them. Nah

  4. Yungry Says:

    I tried to tell ya’ll Jameis would be great!

  5. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    .this is pointless

  6. Tom Edrington Says:

    Drew is missing Jimmy Graham and Graham is also pining for Drew Brees, already complaining about his diminished role in Seattle.

  7. Love and Warrick Dunn Says:

    I will be happy with him just playing better vs. Brees until Drew retires.

  8. celly Says:

    Is Jameis better than Drew? Nope.

    Was Jameis better than Drew yesterday? Yup. And that’s all that matters.

  9. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    All that matters right now is Winston > Mallet.

  10. buddhaboy Says:

    its gonna be up and down all year for Jameis. So we can come in here on Mondays and overact as usual.

    But to previous points, keep getting better is all we ask.

  11. bucrightoff Says:

    Better question:

    Whose arm looks more shot: Drew Brees or Peyton Manning? There were more than a few wounded ducks being tossed by Drew yesterday. In the Dome no less.

  12. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Up and down? I disagree, If the O line that played yesterday at a minimum plays that well the rest of the way trust me Jamies QBR will be right up there with the best in the league. The young man knows how to deliver a football. Just wait on it.

  13. cmurda Says:

    For all this talk of Jameis being slow footed, I remember him running out of the pocket and making something happen with his legs on more than one occasion, including that sweet scamper and spin for a clutch first down. Worry less about the man’s forty time and more about his instincts and ability to get the yardage necessary. Nobody is going to mistake Fameis for Russell Wilson but his pocket presence and ability to go to his 2nd and 3rd reads was very impressive. I love this kid. Any young man that can bounce back from last week’s performance and do what he did in New Orleans is special. VJax and company aren’t going to lael this kid a future hall of famer just because he is on the team. They see the special and so do I.

    cmurda….no surprise I saw “the special” in 2013.

  15. Harry Says:

    During the game I couldn’t help but think it… Then, something TBBF posted yesterday made me think maybe I wasn’t the only one. Yes, I know you are all going to call me crazy. But, yesterday, I was wondering if we are seeing the passing of the torch. From the great HOF Bress to the rookie Winston. Will Winston become the top QB in the NFC South one day? Will Harry win the Mega Lottery?

    While enjoying the great game Winston was having AND that our Bucs were winning, it was just a fun delusional thought, lol.

  16. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    One thing is for sure, Jameis is just as good as Brees when their O-Line doesn’t block well

  17. Dreambig Says:

    What is up with Winston stumbling in evey game this year? Never saw that when he was at FSU. Is this changing his footwork messing up?

  18. Howard Cosell Says:

    QB rating is a great stat to gauge a QB performance in a past game.
    One that’s already finished.
    Trying to use QB rating to predict future performances is iffy at best.
    Case in point: NFL weeks 1 and 2.


  19. RustyRhinos Says:

    Can Mr. Winston and Mr. Brees finish the 2015 season before we get to compare who will have a better season? Things happen during the season ask Mr. Romo.

    Great game we Beat the saints, wahoo! who is up next… Texans.

    Go Bucs!

    Where did Lou Murphy say that
