Jameis Punches His Palm

October 12th, 2015

JameisthinkAmerica’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, has been in overdrive since declaring for the NFL Draft after the NCAA football playoffs in January.

It’s been a nonstop grind of football training (no baseball), traveling, media and working 16-hour days at One Buc Palace.

Asked about the upcoming bye week yesterday, Jameis talked about getting guys back healthy and letting some players (he appeared to be talking about linemen) rest their bodies. But Jameis made it quite clear he has no intention of chilling.

Jameis’ fist and body language said it all.

“Some of us are going to be (clenches fist and punches opposite hand), you know, hitting it even harder [during the bye week], because every week we got to get better and better,” Jameis said. “This is just not a week that we just fall off and relax. We gotta keep our foot on that gas, and try to start rolling.”

Bucs fans are damn lucky to have a quarterback, America’s Quarterback, who won’t sleep until he’s a winner.

    Peyton Manning has thrown more int’s THIS season than td passes. So pipe down, calm down, or whatever you want to call it about our ROOKIE QB throwing INT’s. It’s just hate and that’s where most of it lies.

    If it ain’t hate then what is it? Ignorance?

    The kid hasn’t had one bad quote all year, even with the national media ready pounce if he fails to conjugate a verb properly.

    This Bye Week arrives finally a bit early in the season for us.

    I think things are starting to be in place and I think good results will continue to happen.

    Everuthing is far from perfect but I’m seeing some very positives things.

    If we continue like that 6 victories are not an impossible dream.

  4. Howard Cosell Says:

    38 points yesterday. That was damn impressive even against the Jaguars.
    That has to be the norm.

  5. Buccfan37 Says:

    The game definitely had ups and downs and then up. It wasn’t over until it was almost over.

  6. Matt Says:

    I’m still going with 8-8 or 7-9 , could be even higher if we had some decent cbs. Where is Revis when you need him ? Great things come at a hefty price .
    Maybe we can trade for a Decent CB. Tim Jennings and mike Jenkins absolutely cannot stay on the field getting burnt like that. They’re just too slow. Athletic WRs are gonna kill TB . We play Atlanta in a few weeks . We can’t let Julio attack us like that . We need players too step up!

  7. Tiny Tim Says:


    I already told you what it is. Also, as I’ve written before, throwing INTs is not the death nail that Winston bashers claim it is. Your team can still win even if they commit turnovers. Look no further than Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan yesterday. Both had 2 ints and one fumble which lead to short fields for the other team. THe difference is their kickers didn’t miss kicks and the defense didn’t always surrender 7 points just because there was a short field. Those teams continue to fight in the face of adversity. Peyton Manning has thrown two pick sixes this year, yet his team is undefeated. When the winston bashers realize it takes a team, then they will understand.

    One thing to be encouraged about is the bucs had 400+ yards of offense for two straight weeks. Have the bucs ever done that in their history? This is the 2 game this year the bucs have scored in all four quarters. When was the last time the bucs have scored in all four quarters for two games in a season? We are already better on offense with this rookie. Please allow him to continue to develop.

    I believe both of the above post are accurate… Substance is what JW IS… Shallow people (media) are not driven by true substance because it would not appeal to the audiences it has created for itself…. Rather it is driven by drama derived from falsehoods… Which equal ignorance, which equals perception that causes hate…. In reality its not a hate of the person its a hate of the idea of a person that cause poor judgement… One needs not to judge a persons success to determine character but rather the persons ability to deal with adversity… Its not racism if the judge only see’s the surface of another man… Its prejudice, its shallowness and stupidity…. This is what drives those who “hate” for no true reason… A healthy drama is driven by truth and the truth shall set you free 🙂 and once that happens everyone evolved is a winner!!!!

    The first thing Lovie needs to do this bye week is hope that Banks gets healthy. Second, he need to come to the realization that Verner is better than both Jennings and Jenkins, and it really isn’t that close. He needs to end his love affair with “his guys” and do what’s best for this team. If he doesn’t, our secondary will continue to be carved week in and week out.

    McCoy needs to rest that badly injured shoulder. I wouldn’t practice him until Friday before the Washington game. That guys is manning up and playing hurt every week, and doing it with results. Simply amazing, and he doesn’t get nearly enough credit for the season he’s had so far. Find me a DT with a better season so far. JJ Watt isn’t a DT, but you could argue McCoy has played better.

    Evan Smith, take your time. There’s no need to rush back. In fact, you should just stay out the rest of the year and be there in only an emergency situation. Gotta think long term!

    Mike Evans and Lavonte David – get your heads right. You are both great players, use this time off to hit the reset button and start your seasons now. It’s pretty amazing that we are 0-3 and both those guys have been pretty bad (nobody wants to hear that, but we all know it’s the truth).

    We have a chance to get healthy and someway, somehow get to 500. That would be one helluva accomplishment, because we really haven’t played a complete game yet this year. There really isn’t one team on our schedule that scares me, including the two undefeated teams in our division. Every single game is winnable, and we still have a chance to put together a decent season. Go Bucs!

  10. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Not sure if you guys even realized this, but we haven’t scored more than 30 points in a game in over a year! We haven’t scored 30 twice in a season since 2012. Holy crap that’s some inept offense!

  11. Tom Edrington Says:

    From reading these comments, some believe the Bucs actually beat a good football team on Sunday…..

  12. DB55 Says:

    Forget Winston! McCoy had 2 sacks w 2 mins left in the 4th qrt. OMG like gag me with a spoon!

  13. Nick Says:

    @tom edrington

    Incorrect. We’re happy we didn’t lose to a bad team at home. But thanks for bringing the rain cloud.

  14. Buc1987 Says:

    No Tom…everyone realizes it was only the Jags. They also realize that Lovie’s secondary is hot garbage. There’s no secret there. We all realize it was only the Jags, but it could be the spark that they needed to move forward after the bye week.

    Tom and if they had lost to the Jags??? Then what? Lovie was competent enough to beat the Jags. If they lose….well then we’re back to “Incompetent Lovie”.

    So be happy for the win no matter who it was….

  15. Buc1987 Says:

    DB55…did I see McCoy blow a kiss to the fans yesterday?….I swear I saw that. I could be wrong though.

  16. Buc Neckid Says:

    I am more worried about this defense.
    Yikes, they give up a lot of points.

  17. Tampa Tony Says:

    Jameis needs to tell Loser Lovie to keep his foot on the gas as well. His soft conservative nature will increase his loss total

  18. flmike Says:

    @87 No, you didn’t imagine that….

  19. orlbucfan Says:

    Winston, “America’s QB”? Crikey, next thing you know the wags on here will be calling him the next Steve Young. Both Muscle Hamster and Sims had very good days. Jags were ranked 4th in the league on run D. Not too shabby, OL. Tampa Bay has always had RBs who could catch the ball. Nice seeing our OC taking advantage of it. Here’s hoping he keeps it up!

  20. Buccfan37 Says:

    Hell, to beat any team is an uplifting accomplishment around here, worthy of a parade of high fives.

  21. Capt.Tim Says:

    We are incredibly Lucky to have Jameis. He will change this Franchise into a contender every year.

    If I were a young player- I would beg the Bucs to Draft me, and dwitch me from a OT , to a DE
    Then, I’d let Gerald McCoy carry me to the Hall of Fame.

    I watched him all day yesterday. Even though you could tell his shoulder hurt- he crashed the Jags Line like a meteor!!! Just blew up the Center of their line damn near every play

    As A DE, I’d hold the edge, and just wait there for McCoy to drive Bortles into my waiting arms- like a fisherman with a Net!!

    If It’s Joey Bosa, or whoever we draft next spring- he is gonna feast on the QBs McCoy sends him.

    Lucky Bastard

  22. Capt.Tim Says:

    McCoy blew a kiss to his mom, who always comes to see him
    Sorry boys, It wasnt to you

  23. DB55 Says:


    yes he does that all the time.

  24. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @ 87

    Ir’s not hate or ignorance…..it’s unmet expectations that were unreasonably set before….and unecessarily after the draft with Winston.
    Fans simply don’t understand that a rookie on a bad football team is going to struggle.
    Overselling like being labled “America’s QB” and constant articles about how great Jameis is has created a misconception about how good he should be out of the gate.

    Sure, there is some hate and some ignorance…but mostly too high expectations.

  25. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Mccoy blows a kiss to his family after every sack. Been doing it his whole career. His mom passed away when he was a freshman in college.

  26. Buc1987 Says:

    TBBF…it’s not overhyping. Why? Because it’s the same clowns pre-draft that were saying stupid stuff back then too.

    They want to be proven right. Ignorance then.

    You keep thinking about this over-selling stuff too much. I was the biggest Jameis supporter in this blog, bigger than Joe himself. Yet I wasn’t hyped up for his rookie season.

    Look at the names that said that stuff for the last 2 weeks and the words they used. It’s basically the same rhetoric they used before the draft. Sure they mostly talked about his off-field BS, but they also talked about his 18 INT’s while in college. The same posters were relating his college INT’s to his NFL INT’s and saying that this just proves that they were right. They talked footwork, staring down receivers and anything else they could make up as bad trait that Winston has.

    Btw…Joe may have oversold him, but I always maintained(after the draft) that it will be a roller coaster season for the young 21 yr old rookie. Said it many times too, yet fans were ready to pounce on me every week he made this mistake or that mistake. Joe as well.

    Joe may have oversold JW to the ignorant fans….there I got ya now.

  27. Buc1987 Says:

    Hawaiian Buc…wow that’s the first time I ever saw it. Perhaps I did see it in the past, and just forgot about it.

  28. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    He even talked about it on the radio last week.

  29. DB55 Says:

    JW 10-6 rookie year
    5k yards passing
    52 TDs
    26 INTs
    18 rushing TDs
    SB MVP
    And a pretty chick in a pear tree!


  30. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Exactly 87……I’m not taliking about you overselling……

    And, most of the skieptics (that’s what I will call them) have been there from the beginning…..but there are others that fall into the unmet expectation crowd.

    It’s simply my opinion that Joe is, and has been overselling Jameis….after the pick…that’s why I believe it’s unecessary….even this article…..he takes every opportinity to tell us how lucky we are to have Jameis and how great his is…..
    We get it…..enough already….he’s ours now….and we believe in him and know he will get better as he gains experience.

    I was always told….once the sale is made…..stop selling!!!

  31. Mo_Downs Says:

    The Bucs PR machine did its job. They hyped the #1 draft pick, a Franchise QB of the future. Winston’s football resume was outstanding an deserving of the hype based on merit.

    Everyone within the US borders knew it would be a learning process for a rookie QB. No amount of hype should have swayed a knowledgeable football fan over 14 to believe that suddenly a rookie QB was going to become a Tom Brady in 4 games.

    Koetter has done what he’s paid to do. That is, fit the scheme to the talent.
    The growth process is apparent on both sides of the ball and should continue to pay dividends with wins as the season progresses.

    Most fans expect to be ENTERTAINED, period. So, watching the sausage being made (rebuilding a team) isn’t entertaining. A seasoned fan realizes that and looks for the type of incremental progress that this team has shown since training camp.

    The L&L Bucs are building a winner. It will take as long as it takes. There are no FA shortcuts to success. That was proved last year.

    Lovie, like Dungy, may put all the pieces together and be fired just in time for another Gruden to step in and put the team over the hump and claim all the credit. I’m sure Lovie will cry all the way to the bank….

  32. Eric Says:

    Peyton Manning’s first five games

    5 TDS
    12 INTS

    1-4 record.

    Ill take where we are with Jameis.

    Be real nice if the defense could turn things around as they did last year in second half of season. I think it is doable. Boneheaded coverage so far though.

  33. Greg Says:

    Sometimes lees is more for rookie qbs. But what the hell happened to our secondary?

  34. Buc1987 Says:

    Hey Erik..wherever you are. Have they finished sculpting Mariota’s bust for the HOF yet?

  35. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Buc1987 Says
    “Peyton Manning has thrown more int’s THIS season than td passes.”

    Manning is an old man now…a little unfair to use that comparison, lol.

    Jameis is a gunslinging rookie, so he’ll throw plenty of picks. The important thing is that he learns from them and gets better. So I think you and I are on the same page with Winston.

  36. Buc1987 Says:

    Bonzai…well I still think it’s good comparison. He was in the Super Bowl 2 years ago and playing lights out. He’s also a seasoned vet, and still a good one at that.

    I’m using Manning as a gauge, because I’m pretty sure most Broncos fans aren’t freaking out or calling him a bust.

    I’m sure I could find more than Manning if I were to actually search.

    Tom Brady’s an old man now too, he’s playing just fine. Hell Steve DeBerg that was an old man.

  37. R.O Says:

    Their kickers don’t miss kicks? I guess you didn’t see the day Matt Bryant had. Everyone just makes $hit up…

  38. BoJim Says:

    Man. Jameis has the right attitude. Haven’t we always said we need some tude? We got some!!

  39. Buc1987 Says:

    If I had the drive of Jameis Winston when I was 21 I could have been President of the United States.

  40. Capt.Tim Says:

    HawaiianBuc- you are right, his Mother has sadly passed away. Thanks for correction.
    She sure did a great job with that young man.,He has been a class act from the Day he arrived here.
    This team has so many good characters on its roster- its hard not to root for them
