Jameis Says He’ll “Get My Way” And Be Top Dog, Top Voice On Bucs

September 30th, 2015

jameis 0921cAmerica’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, seems mighty sick of the orders he’d had from Buccaneers veterans to relax and be a rookie and don’t worry about leading.

Gerald McCoy led that chorus, one of the silliest songs Joe has heard in years.

McCoy also advised Jameis to be himself. And that’s where the contradiction and wackiness lies. Jameis is a natural born leader of men. If he’s going to relax and be himself, then you better believe he wants to stand up and put the Bucs on his back.

Jameis talked about that this afternoon at One Buc Palace.

“Any chance I have to be the outspoken leader of this team, I step in and I do it,” Jameis said. “That’s just my character. That’s who I am. You know, I can’t be a guy that just be quiet and allow stuff to happen. I speak up positively. Eventually, I’m going to learn, I’m going to get my way into being the big leader on this team. But for now, I’m just playing my role, playing quarterback, and when I have an opportunity, when the opportunity presents itself, I do step in and take it.”

That just says it all, Jameis essentially is saying now he’s playing a role but will be himself later. The sooner the better, young Jameis.

Later, Jameis explained that “winning is about us,” and losing is about the top leader and player.

“There’s someone that can control that during the meantime,” Jameis said of losing. “And you know, and the great players, they make the difference. They are able to make the difference and help you get a win when you’re in a losing situation.”

Wins and losses are about production, but losing also is contagious and can be cultural. Chris Conte spelled that out decisively. Joe expects Jameis greatly will help repair the Bucs’ losing culture.

    What an exceptional attitude. Loving this kid more and more every week.

    Bucs haven’t had a leader since Ronde retired. All others have been excuse making pretenders. I’m all for Jameis taking over. Can’t get any worse. Rookie or not, one more dropped pass and he should be in someone’s grill. At least the kid has heart. He may be the only one. His passion is sincere. Something severely missing from the rest of organization.

  3. Tom Edrington Says:

    QB leadership would be converting half of the third down attempts

  4. Ray Rice Says:

    Do that $hit Jameis! Fuk what Aunt Geraldine and whoever else says anything. If they can’t put the team on their back and lead then force your way in and take that leadership from them.

    Shots fired. Move over ice cream boy. Your done. No one wants to hear it. Anymore. You look real pretty on the field I’ll give u that.

    Although I agree it’s silly, I think most are misunderstanding what McCoy was saying. He was just saying that there is so much going on in the head of a rookie that he doesn’t need to add to that by trying to be a leader. I think for 99% of players that would be great advice, but Jameis is probably in that 1% where it’s not. I think it probably takes more effort for him to NOT be a leader than it would for him to be a leader. There is nothing forced when it comes to Jameis leading. It’s easy to him and comes completely natural.

  7. WyldKat Says:

    I’d rather see Jameis do his thing than let the Bucs keep on keeping on, since what we had before was working out oh so well, right?

  8. DB55 Says:

    Bring in Jimmy Johnson or Winston Moss ANYBODY with a set of balls to get rid of these mentality soft losers. If not people will just lose interest as many have already.

    Amen to all the posts!! Your turn Jameis! Enough of the losing attitude that seems to pervade this entire team! Enough, before another season goes down the drain! Seems as if Jameis had enough of it himself. Now we’re all going to be in for a fun ride! March on Jameis!

  10. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I think McCoy was simply taking some of the rookie pressure off Jameis….Jameis is saying “I can handle it all”……I believe it certainly can’t help.

    A QB is in a much better position to lead than a DT.

    Let it happen….

  11. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Certainly can’t hurt……

  12. So Cal X Bucs Fan Says:

    Try leading your team into the endzone more than once in a game Winston!

  13. OneLove Says:

    Just think about how GOOD LOVIE is going to look 3 years from now when were DOMINATING EVERYONE in the NFC South with America’s Quarterback!! 😀

    “It’s as simple as that” – Lovie Smith aka “DAMN IM GOOD”

  14. Soggy Says:

    Have not seen where anybody talked about the play where evans lost the ball and jameis came in on the tackling of the texan player who had the ball, I thought that was awesome and showed some nads.. Nice job jameis… Joe can you show the clip??

  15. JabooBuc Says:

    Love this!!! Waited for the vets to stand up and lead. Didn’t happen so he’s taking over. Keep doing the same this and expecting different results is insanity. He will hold people accountable and be a positive force. Very positive sign and those that know Jameis know that this is why he was drafted. Marcus may be a little ahead of him in terms of polish at this point, but this is why he was selected first. No time to wait for someone to step up.

  16. Soggy Says:

    Joe I just seen your fightin jameis article and that is the play I was talking about but I did not see the jab until your I watched your clip thanks and Wow..

  17. ElioT Says:

    Clearly, no one else is going to do it.

    McCoy doesn’t have the stones, and Lavonte is too quiet of a guy.

    Go Jameis!

    …still the Panthers are going to destroy this team on Sunday, but I expect Jameis to play well.


    Go Sucs!!!

  18. LargoBuc Says:

    Three games in, I would be ecstatic if James were to step up and lead. We need it now. Tell GMC to shut up and work because he may have skill, but the man is NOT a leader!
