Jameis Winston Is Expecting Emotional Pain

September 11th, 2015

jameis 0213Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, made a gesture of agony touching near his abdomen this week.

It was a fun and telling moment as he closed his news conference at One Buc Palace.

Jameis was asked about his vision for the season opener on Sunday, and Jameis talked a little Xs and Os, and how painful they can be at times for a gunslinger who wants to make a play.

“First of all, I visualize getting a win – just making the right decisions,” Jameis said. “I don’t really focus on the negatives that probably could happen. I’m just like, if the linebackers drop deep and I can’t hit a dig behind them, I’m just going to take the checkdown. I know it’s going to hurt me, because I know I want to make that throw in the second window, but I’m just going to take the checkdown and keep the chains moving. It’s all about trying to get my mind right and do the right thing.”

Yes, Jameis, please take the checkdown. If there’s nothing there on 2nd-and-4, then take that dumpoff to Doug Martin, or hit Brandon Myers planted near the sticks.

This will be one of the greatest challenges for Young Jameis. Joe doesn’t want Jameis to play scared, but smart is always preferred.

    Im both scared and elated we have a QB who actually needs to be throttled down.

  2. Tampa Tony Says:

    Just watch film of Glennon or Bridgewater to learn how to do a Checkdown

  3. Hawk Says:

    Anyone who thinks that Glennon is a poster child for ‘checkdowns’ is either ignorant of the facts, or just a hater (idiot).
    If you want to watch film of ‘checkdown artists’, watch Tom Brady who was ranked 35th in % of pass attempts OVER 15yds. OR Drew Brees, who was ranked 32nd (2014 stats per ‘Advanced Football Analytics’). There are negatives to Glennon’s game, but being afraid to ‘air it out’ is not one of them.
    BTW, Glennon was ranked #1 in % of pass attempts OVER 15 yds. Not only is he NOT ‘Captain Checkdown’, but he doesn’t even rate buck private.
    I am amazed at the number of people who hear/read something, and repeat it as gospel without checking it’s authenticity. Google is your friend.

    You mean take what the defense gives you? Or also if it is not there throw it away. Don’t hold on to it.

  5. JUNY Says:

    He will be playing CPT Checkdown this weekend!

  6. Falcons Fan Says:

    Let’s be honest the Titans are light years better than the Bucs. Anyone who thinks the Bucs will win is sipping the Kool-Aid. Winston will throw at least 3 picks and Titans will leave with a W. 27-14 Titans

  7. Pickgrin Says:

    Jameis feeling “emotional pain” at the thought of checking down. LOL

    That’s because he is a PLAYMAKER the likes of which Bucs fans have NEVER seen at the QB position. (playing for the Bucs that is).

    Good luck in your debut Jameis. Light it up. The Titans Defense is very suspect. Show em who is the boss.

  8. DavidbigBucsFan Says:

    Well said Hawk. Glennon has some issues but pushing the ball downfield is not lest we forget the 80 yard bomb he threw to HiTopFade 2 years ago or that beauty he threw against Cincy this preseason. Now to your neglected and abandoned little brother Falcon, just say no to glue little Titan fan.

  9. Bucco Brice Says:

    see who started at Center for Pats…Undrafted David Andrews…the Iosefa pick is bewildering. Thought Andrews was a decent player to draft or sign…Pats kick ass in drafting, ugh…

    Light years? Kool-Aid?

    Vegas says the Bucs by 3. So perhaps they sipped too much Kool-Aid too.

  11. Jeagan1999 Says:

    I’m not worried about his “emotional pain”. I’m more worried about the physical pain he will endure at the hands of our woefully inadequate offensive line.

    Get the ice bath ready, boys!

  12. Couch Fan Says:

    Careful Winston, dont want to get the moniker of Captain Checkdown that the foolish fans just love to bestow on people.

    “I don’t really focus on the negatives that probably could happen.”

    JW just forfeited his right to post here on JBF. Hell we dig up crap like Ira where you have to research to see just what kind of records for futility we might be able to reach. He certainly does not fit with the animosity amigos and a LOT of other posters here. Thankfully we still have some positive people left and some people like Hawk who at least use facts.

    @Falconsfan Well I give you props for admitting up front that you are a troll.
    At least you’re honest. I’m too freaking lazy and unmotivated to troll other team’s fan sites so perhaps you can do me a favor.

    I of course believe you are wrong about the Bucs losing to Tennessee.
    But I do believe you have stumbled onto a correct score from this opening weekends game.

    So since I’m too lazy perhaps you can return to your Dixie Chicks fan site and post the score there.

    Philadelphia 27
    Atlanta 14

    Falcons get the hell outta here dude. You don’t belong in this blog. And don’t bet on your falcons that much. Yes the are better than the bucs right now, but I wouldn’t say they are a team that scares anyone. So do us a favor and take your football hate to another website.

  15. Hawk Says:

    Actually, vegabuc, the Dirty Birds are NOT better than the Bucs “right now”. They are both 0-0. As concerned as I am about this team, I will NOT say that I believe the Falcons will be the better team at the end of the season. Same goes for the Kitties and ‘aints. I have that irrational hope that all ‘good’ Buccaneer fans have, regardless of the leading indicators and past performance.
    I would like to think, StPeteBucsFan, that even though I am not in your ‘Positive Fan Club’, neither am I an ‘Animosity Amigo’.
    But I’ll let you decide.

  16. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    No you’re not in the animosity amigos..lol. You are one of the minority here however who insist on FACTS. There are actually plenty of others who post lots of good facts but alas many just spew emotion.

  17. Dave Says:

    Brad Johnson checked down all the way to the SB.
    I want JW to let loose, but over time as he reads the defenses better and knows better what he can and can’t do.

  18. Bobby Says:

    Since when did checking down and moving the chains become a bad thing?? All great QB’s live by it. A good running game, taking what the defense gives you, and airing it out when the play is there or to keep the defense honest. The higher percentage plays win games. Deep balls are not high percentage. Now, if you’re checking down on 3rd and 7 with a 2 yard pass….that’s when I get pissed. I saw too much of that over the past several years.

  19. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    Being aware of the mistakes the defenses make and taking advantage of them is something I hope to see JW do. Manning and Brady are experts at doing that.
