Jameis Hit Coach’s Goal, Helped O-line

September 29th, 2015


That sacks goose egg dropped by the Texans’ defense? Give Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, plenty of credit, explains his position coach.

Tampa Bay quarterbacks coach Mike Bajakian hopped on the Buccaneers Radio Network on WDAE-AM 620 last night and saidJameis has been challenged with firm weekly goals since his opening-day stinker against the Titans.

Jameis, for the second-week in a row, rose to the occasion on Sunday.

“Hey, let’s get rid of the ball on time. Let’s make sure we’re getting to our checkdowns,” Bajakian said were Jameis’ big goals in Houston.

“I thought this week he played with great rhythm, got rid of the ball on time. I mean, Houston’s front had zero sacks, which is quite an accomplishment, obviously.

“Obviously, that’s quite an accomplishment by our offensive line, but I think Jameis’ rhythm and decisiveness in the pass game helped in that regard.”

Bajakian went on to say every throw in the Bucs’ playbook has a designated drop technique and anticipating receivers breaking open in their routes is the biggest adjustment for rookie QBs. Jameis is thriving in those areas.

“He made some throws well before the receivers were out of their breaks,” Bajakian said of Jameis.

Right now, Jameis is the beaming light of hope on the Buccaneers.

    I get the feeling that a breakout game for “America’s Quarterback” is CLOSE!! We need to be able to score AT LEAST 30 to make up for these HORRIBLE DEFENSIVE PLAYERS WE HAVE!!

    “It’s as simple as that” – Lovie Smith aka “Drafting nothing but defense from here on out!” aka “MY SEAT IS STILL COLD!”

    Tampa was a pitiful 1-for-12 on third down in Houston — as big a reason as any why they flew home at 1-2!!!!!!

  3. DallasBuc Says:

    The only hope for this football team.
    Glazers, stop wasting precious time and get a real coach in here to take advantage of Winston’s presence on the roster. How much more embarrassment do you expect us to endure? How much more can you guys take?

  4. bucrightoff Says:

    It’s gonna be really exciting when we have an offensive head coach next for Jameis to really shine. Then you’ll see hope return to this franchise. Fans already can’t wait to fire Lovie, outside his mom, OneLove, and Bonzai who always chooses lost causes.

  5. BucFan20 Says:

    He is 1-2. Only stat that counts.

  6. mike Says:

    Are we supossed to root for jameis this year? If he does well, lovie comes back. If he shows no more improvement, we can get an nfl coach in tampa.

  7. DallasBuc Says:

    3-16 is a stat that counts too.
    So is 2-14 in 2014
    0-6 in NFC South in 2014
    0-9 at home
    80% roster turnover
    0% success rate in 2014 free agency

  8. Buc Fan South Tampa Says:

    We cant be changing coaches every two years. Coaches have their own system and their own type of players they like. It took us over a year to get in 4-3 players that understand Lovie’s system. Koetter has his brand of plays and players too. Lovie’s here for another 3-4 years at least, if we go to playoffs then another 10-15

  9. BucFan20 Says:

    Not screwball Lovie! Jameis. The only stat that matters is W-L. Nothing else mattered or the reason why with Glennon or if Lovie was going to Ruin him. At this time he is 1-2. That is not a Winning record.

  10. Ray Rice Says:

    As I’ve said since day one. THE MESSIAH will lead this franchise to the promise land. May not be this year but I have confidence he will sooner or later. I don’t mind patiently waiting. Been doing it since 02. What’s another 3-5 years. That being said I hope I’m still alive to see it. The FUKN defense is decreasing my life expectancy by the minute. #RIDEORDIE

  11. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    It may make posters feel good to vent against Lovie time after time after time….it gets a bit tiresome to read it….
    He may deserve firing….but I think it is unlikely after 3 games and when we have a chance of matching last year’s win record in game 4….that the Glazers pull the plug.

    Don’t get me wrong….he deserves the boot…..but it just won’t happen….so, root for him to do better….if he doesn’t he gets fired….if he does….we win.

  12. Buc Neckid Says:

    You cannot look at the atrocious 3rd down efficiency only.
    The blame for that can be shared by all.
    But i thought Jameis looked like a Professional Quarterback.
    And that is about the best compliment there is.
    He stood tall
    he delivered on time
    Sure some of his throws were errant
    But some may look overemphasized due to “poor route running”
    So all in all
    I would agree that Jameis is progressing nicely and will have his breakout game once all other assets step out and get in synch.

  13. Buc1987 Says:

    Well I’m expecting 5-11 this year. Jameis will have big games and big moments. Then he will have wildly crazy days. I think him and Evans are not in synch as they will be soon. He does need to spread the ball around more, like a machine gun. Or is that just it? They want to run Evans over the middle more because he’s a big boy and much younger than Vjax? Bigger target for Winston to see and hit. I don’t know, but their ( Evans and JW) timing is off. They will and need to correct it soon. It’ll get fixed.

    The kid is still young. The season is still young. Let’s watch him grow, without expecting such GREAT things during his rookie campaign. If we see great things here and there that will be nice. We will see several flashes of GREAT from the QB that we drafted throughout this 5-11 season. They’ll be no doubt by season’s end that every Buc fan will be a JW fan, record or not.

  14. FortMyersDave Says:

    I’ll agree with Buc1987 on 5-11 if the Bucs can actually win a home game or 2; preferably before the Bears come to town and before the bye week (hint, hint lovie: beat the stinkin’ Jags!)… But look 1-12 on 3rd downs just will not do the trick, especially with all the ****ing penalties and on the defensive side of the ball; well its even worse: penalties and the inability to stop the opponent on third down… But the team is rebuilding and there will be games lost that should have been won like last sunday. what worries me is the lack of discipline on the team: so many penalties; can’t someone on the coaching staff count to 12?????

  15. DB55 Says:

    Winston Moss for HC!!!!

  16. Buc1987 Says:

    Well I’m going to the Jags vs Bucs game. I’ll be sitting in the end zone. So I might get a chance to catch a Brindza missed kick and I’m not giving it back too. I need Jameis to sign it for me after the game. I’ll be in the aisles when they line up or a kick and I’m making a run at 1 or 5 of them shanked bastards.

    I’m getting me a foul ball damn it.

    87, LOL!!

    I don’t know how much credit the O-line deserves for zero sacks this week. The Texan game plan coming in clearly was to stop the run. The Buccaneers O-line continues to be dominated in run blocking. I only hope that they do not cause any of our RB’s to get hurt.

    @San Fran

    Man that was ugly! But it looked like that wasn’t Ali’s assignment. Ali clearly stepped left right off the snap to help the center. Clown-ey looked to be Gos’s responsibility on that play but he was too slow to get there. And you can see from the pre-snap formation that Clown-ey was lined up diagonal from Ali’s right shoulder. So when Ali went left off the snap all Clown-ey had to do was use Ali’s momentum and push him down the line. Either way… Dam! That was ugly!

  20. Bculaw Says:

    Still shocked at the lack of support the fan base shows this rookie QB. Patience and progress is the theme of the season at the QB position. Heck, the guy was rookie of the week one game ago and so many are still sharpening their pitchforks over his alleged lack of development.
