“Legs” Jameis

September 25th, 2015


In his short professional tenure, Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, has surprised a lot of Bucs fans with his running ability.

Heck, we’ve seen Jameis sprint and dive for the corner pylon, calmly roll/scramble left and cut back right for a touchdown, break off an open-field spin move for a long first-down run. And there’s more.

Who could forget young Jameis has connected on a monster bomb while on the run.

Former NFL Brady Quinn, now of CBS Sports, is among those impressed by the dimension Jameis brings with his mobility.

In this CBS video below, Quinn and prickly Pete Prisco pick the Bucs-Texans game.

2-1 for Tampa Bay? Could it be true? Quinn predicts a 17-14 win. Prisco and Pat Kirwan? You’ll have to watch and see.

    Please go 2-1 Bucs. Please!

    It sure would be nice to see a winning record again…

    I watched both Koetters and Jameis’ press conferences from this week and there was one point I found very interesting

    Jameis was asked about his ability in the no-huddle “2 minute” offense and his response was very muted and something along the lines of “it’s just football, I just run coach Koetter’s offense.”

    They asked Koetter the same question about Jameis’ ability in the no huddle and he got this huge grin on his face and basically said Jameis is always in his ear and won’t shut up about his love for running the hurry up.

    Just found the public answer by Jameis to be very interesting when you consider the way he must be lobbying Koetter behind the scenes

    That’s one thing that actually did not surprise me. I remember when I found out how slow he was viewing highlights of some of his runs at FSU. He’s not going to run away from anybody but he is very slippery, and agile. He may be slow but he’s still an athlete and has some very good moves. We’re just not going to see him leaving a wake of defenders in his prop wash.

    He also has the competitive factor that makes him a really tough runner. And at the end of the day when you think about it football is played in ten yard increments not 100 yards. Fameis is an excellent runner in that ten yard window.

    I kept trying to remind folks of his week one highlight run against Oklahoma state last year,no one seem to listen. Everyone was more concerned about 40 times. He’ll be converting timely third downs from time to time his entire career. Duke a weapon. realist!!!You just wait on.

    4th Qrt 6:30 3&9

    Jaboo drops back, sees open field, he takes off, spin move first down. Did I mention he plays hurt too? Ballers make plays in the 4th qrt to win games. The rest just cash pay checks.

    50 yards in the air off of one foot! I remember that it was assume, but the first down run had to be his best play of the game bc it was clutch. Clutch I say!!!

    went back and watched that nice long pass to ASJ… that ASJ didn’t come up with. Jameis seems so slow, plauding, and deliberate. The wind up takes forever. Also, rewatched the td to vjax. I guess thats who Jameis is. The play was beautiful, the touch was so pretty.

  9. mike Says:

    I have a feeling we get pounded this weekend.

  10. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    I love Jameis but even I can admit

    The guy looks like a cartoon octopus trying to run on land when he’s running

    I hope after this win people will start to believe in the bucs…or will they say the Texans are just as bad as the saints…GO BUCS!!!

    When Winston hit Jackson for the TD last Sunday I saw God.
    No sacrilege intended. My vision got blurry and I saw a light
    and it said “Fear not for the Bucs”.

  13. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    or will they say the Texans are just as bad as the saints

    Bank on it!!! The Texans would drop to 0-3 and that’s all we’ll hear.

    I look for a tough game Sunday. Not sure who will win, but hope it us and I give us a good chance.

    But the REAL game is actually the following Sunday. Win or lose in Houston the contest against the Panthers is really shaping up to be yyuugge.

    Even if we lose at Houston if we beat the stinking Panthers at home on Sunday the ship will be righted.

    Lot’s riding on that game including our horrible home field losing streak. We MUST stop that home futility. IF we should beat Houston and go 2-1 we might get another big crowd despite the Titan debacle. IF we do get a big crowd against Carolina we simply cannot afford to blow that game!!!

    Win it and we’re 2-2..2-0 in our division and in great shape. As TBBF points out we will also have tied our record from last year for wins.

    Howard …a light was talking to you?

  15. DB55 Says:

    Howard is rejoicing in the kingdom.

  16. Eric Says:

    Just keep bumbling; stumbling; winding up long; and winning.

    As I recall, Jameis’ immobility was one the the Mariota mobs biggest arguements. He is just a statue, they said, and cant scramble. Ha.
