Jameis: “It Was A Promising Loss”

September 27th, 2015


America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, liked the feel of the Bucs’ offense today.

He explained it very simply.

“No sacks,” Jameis said after the game, while raving about his offensive line.

That’s right. The often publicly flogged Buccaneers O-line did not allow one sack today to one of the best defensive lines in football.

Sure, there were pressures and Jameis took hits. But the line pass-blocked well enough, and young Jameis got rid of the football when he was supposed to.

Despite some off target throws and a foolish interception, Jameis should be pleased by the execution of his offensive line, and by what he produced, as well. Jameis didn’t lose this game. Drops and a dreadful kicking game sank the Bucs.

“It was a promising loss,” Jameis said.

Joe nearly vomited when he heard that and must disagree. Today was the opposite of a “promising loss.”

Jameis went on to call the offensive line amazing, stated that he got better today, and praised the rookie offensive linemen for standing tall against a great defense and J.J. Watt rotating all throughout the defensive line.

    It was a lost opportunity for a win. Can’t expect a better performance from the offensive line. Drops and bad passes cost the offense today, not the line.

  2. Clint Says:

    his ball placement and under 50% completion percentage wasn’t promising. That was an awful loss that only a second rate franchise would accept. Another waste of a Sunday afternoon watching the Tampa Bay expansion Bucs

  3. Tom Edrington Says:

    What in the hell is a promising loss?

    Is that promising there will be more losses?

  4. BucFan20 Says:

    Just another Pre Season game. Oh wait?

  5. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    Thank God the offensive line blocked well. We lost this game because of our FG kicker not doing his job. HE ONLY HAD ONE JOB!!!!

  6. Eric Says:

    Jameis is doing just fine.

    About as well as could be expected at this early point. He was oh so close to a big game today.

    Won’t be long before he lights somebody up for 350+. Be nice if it was this week.

    I say we have a reasonable chance at 3-2 at the bye with a favorable schedule thereafter.

    Go bucs.

  7. "TheKevin" Says:


    Can I hit that one time?
    Pass it this way buddy.

    3-2 lolhahahahahahahahahahah hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahah

    Must be some good smoke over there.

  8. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    If we beat the panthers WE WILL BE IN GREAT SHAPE!! Lets hope other people can beat the Falcons because I don’t think Jameis is ready to beat Seahawk style Cover 3 and Cover 1 yet.

  9. TAC Says:

    I guess that is what you get with this positive attitude QB. Glass is always half full.

    I don’t fault Winston much for this game, there were just to many drops, crucial drops at that. These were game changers. Evans admitted it, but that is about as useful as the positive glass half full BS.

    The D Players are still slow in this scheme, play action is killing them, which sets up a great run game, and they can’t stop the run. The defense is broken, even in the 2nd year, they’re still lost, and break easy.

    The red zone stop at the end of the game may have been the first one this year out of 9 not to end in a touchdown, so there is some growth i guess, lol.

  10. CC Says:

    7 dropped passes.
    10 penalties. And how many more that were declined.
    3 missed field goals. And 1 missed extra point.
    Defense that sucked.
    But according to Lovie, its just one game. We’ll get better. And real football doesn’t start until November.

  11. BucFan20 Says:

    They Panthers will probably start their backup QB against us! Either way it will not matter.

  12. lightningbuc Says:


    Joe Knows QBs!

  13. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    A long as the offensive line blocks well everything will fix itself. Whoever is kicking will make FG’s, the WR’s will catch passes, and the defense will make stops. Jameis isn’t ready to make the playoffs yet, maybe in his third year we’ll be playoff bound and shown on primetime television.

  14. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:


    shut up you idiot. you don’t know how to judge QB’s

  15. The Buc Realist Says:

    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).

  16. JabooBuc Says:

    It’s so hard to come to this site (which I like) and see soooo many idiotic posts from people I promise never played ball at any kind of serious level. Joe, this team is getting better. Kicker had a bad day which made this a different ball game.

    We have a rookie QB and an OLine with 2 rookies going against one ode the best DLines in football. We were in this game to the end and did not give up a sack. Could Jameis have played better? Sure. But you can tell he’s starting to feel it. OLine is getting better. Defense is playing better.

    I predict a win next week.

  17. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:


    Would be nice if the offensive line blocked like Pats and Packers!!

  18. The Buc Realist Says:

    @bucs fan #7423

    yes it would, we just need 2-3 better O-lineman, at least 1 fast WR that can get separation, A pass threat TE that stays health, And Jameis will have to prove that he can beat the blitz on a consistent basis!

  19. BrianBucs Says:

    @ Joe

    You better call Florio because earlier on PFT he said “For the Buccaneers, Jameis Winston continues to disappoint”

  20. Clint Says:

    I am going to be honest… there’s no bigger Jameis fan here than me but he looks like a guy who just isnt gonna make it. He doesn’t look like a pro; looks slow and gangly

  21. JabooBuc Says:

    Clint, if you can’t see it then you are blind. It’s his 3rd game as a pro and he’s technically still a Junior in college. He played well enough to win this game. Lot of drops today and a bad kicker performance against one of the best defenses in the NFL kept us from winning this game. There are a very special few that can do what he’s doing.

  22. Connor Says:

    Yeah. So promising. Jameis couldn’t even complete easy passes that 5 or 10 yards in front of him. Either that or he was overthrowing everybody out there.

    He did have a lot of dropped passes. I’ll give him that. But you still have a lot of poor throws either way from him.

  23. rjhurst813 Says:

    David has been killed by playaction fakes since his rookie year. He is always out of position over pursuing his gap. But in years past he was an excellent tackler. NOT ANYMORE. This scheme simply highlight David weaknesses ie covering and playing assignment football.

  24. JaMarcus Leafwhich Says:

    Can we please stop blaming the kicker for this loss already? Every week JaMarcus has a new scapegoat. This Week it’s Brindza. Dude just isn’t accurate at all. Just imagine if our Wr’s weren’t giants how bad and high his throws would look. I’m sick of people making excuses for this guy. PLEASE STOP WITH THE RIDICULOUS AMERICA’S QB crap. His stats don’t suggest he’s even Gibsonton’s Qb. Pass for over 250yds and get at least 50% completion percentage then maybe he can be Seffner’s Qb until then kill it.

  25. JSmalls Says:

    We’re good… The football season doesn’t really start until November.

  26. JaMarcus Leafwhich Says:

    Comment moderation…really. The kind of stuff communist regimes do to quite the voices that don’t agree with them. Pretty sad.

  27. JabooBuc Says:

    JaMarcus Leafwich, you are one of the idiots I was referring to earlier.

  28. TAC Says:

    @JaMarcus Leafwhich

    The name is lol funny, but I don’t agree at all about Winston. It’s like were watching 2 different QB’s. He made mistakes for sure, but there were some great plays made, and those drops were killers. He threw the ball away when needed, rolled away from pressure, and made some more great throws.

    He has a lot to learn, but the right decision was made to start him this year. He will get much better IMO.

    Don’t care to much about the draft, Winston is the bucs QB, not much more to say, he didn’t pick the bucs.

  29. BrianBucs Says:

    Gotta cut Jameis a little slack. He is still a young rookie and is still looking like he’s not ready for the NFL game yet. So give him a little time and see how he improves. If he is still playing the same way this time next year that he is right now, the Bucs will have to acknowledge that they have a QB problem. We’ll just have to wait and see

  30. JabooBuc Says:

    If you think Jameis is not showing great promise then you don’t know football. They no longer need to worry about addressing the QB position in this town and can focus around building this team around him. That is huge in the NFL. this team is getting better in front of our eyes but most are too stupid to realize it.

  31. BrianBucs Says:

    @ JabooBuc

    A lot of players show promise and potential but fail to reach it. Winston is a work in progress with a long way to go and a lot to learn. We’ll see how he developes

  32. JabooBuc Says:

    BrianBucs, not sure what your point is. Everyone is a work in progress. Especially rookies. However, he has shown me enough thus far to justify making him the first pick in the draft. It’s time the rest of the team steps up.

  33. iamabuc Says:

    @JabooBuc I agree completly in what you’re saying. I see progrees. Since I am one of the few true fans in here, I’m gonna do like that other dude says, I forgot his handle,……. wait for it!

  34. destro44 Says:


    I’m with you. I think people forgery our kicker is a rookie too. And one with a gifted foot, that kind if range is insane but he needs to perfect his craft. You don’t kick him till the street for one awful game.

    I think Winston made great strides today, he was reading pressure much better.

    You are also right, if we make our kicks, catch a couple balls the score would have dictated a completely different game which would have allowec us to run more, and made Houston pass more. That means Blue doesn’t have abig game and maybe the pass rush would have shown up.

    Things went bad for this team at bad times today and it went nown from there. Anyone who thought we were a playoff team was delusional. We lost I’m never happy about that. But I’m encouraged by the O line, Winston and offensive game plan today. The Defense came out soft but improved. So I’m not as upset as I was week one. So progress.

  35. Jason McLaurin Says:

    This loss was promising because the defense played outstanding the offensive line got better and looks to be trending upwards. The only thing that killed us was those fgs. This team has a lot of promise and showed some flashes of playoff ball in the fourth quarter. I think the division crown will look like a reality if we can bounce back against the Panthers and avoid a losing streak. 2-1102 inside the division early would be larger than anything. It shouldn’t be the talk of practice though instead just focus on getting that first home win for Lovie Smith and Jameis Winston###play4WINStonfightt4LOViE

  36. mike10 Says:

    Thats a dumb thing to say – it’s like an “pretty ugly girl.”

    You lost, it sucked, it was an ugly old hoe

  37. FortMyersDave Says:

    The Bucs held the ball for 23 minutes and change! Ouch; that also means that the defense was on the field for 36+ minutes. No wonder they were so gassed in the 4th quarter and let Houston just chew up that clock and make Lovie burn his timeouts on that last FG drive. Number of plays: Tampa 56, Houston 86. Bucs just did not play well enough in any facet of the game to win. Tampa was 1 for ****ing 12 on 3rd down attempts. Awful! And the penalties, well there were a lot again and both sides of the ball got their share. 12 men on the field is unacceptable, the Bucs simply are an undisciplined team and that falls on the coaches. Yuck all around!

  38. Tee Says:

    For those of you who claim to be Bucs fans… Yall suck. I mean every week there is a complaint. Yeah they loss but look at the positives that you already complain about! O-line is gelling, Winston is going to continue to get better, not a blowout… And if you want to blame someone then besides the kicker blame the special teams player Mercilus for not falling on the ball instead of trying to scoop and score. I promise you that was the biggest play that came back to bite us. No way we wouldn’t have scored from the 5 yard line at that point in the game, but only true fans would believe that. Anyway for those of you who are die hard fans just be patient. To you other so called fans go find another team.
