Jameis Shooting For 4-2 Mark

October 22nd, 2015

jameis 0924Rookie quarterbacks are inconsistent. It’s nearly unavoidable.

But that doesn’t mean they have to suck every week.

America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, has played three good, solid games this season. He’s also rolled out two dog-poop performances, rookie showings.

So in a way, up-and-down Jameis is 3-2 this season.

Against the Redskins on Sunday, it’s really time for Jameis to find a rhythm, one that gets him to the 4-2 mark.

Considering the Bucs have a sound offensive line (for now), it’s reasonable to think Jameis should and could play two good games for every bad one.

That’s not wishful thinking.

    The Houston game was anything but good. 17-36,261 is at best really mediocre. Unless your definition of good is ‘not horrible or wretched’. He’s 2-3 in my book, just like the Bucs.

  2. Bucsdawg4lyfe Says:

    Louis, merly looking at the stat line does not tell the full story. Clearly you did not watch the Bucs game that day. There were 7 or 8 dropped balls. Not on him. If the WR convert those catches and we had a decent kicker, we would be 3-2, not 2-3 =)

    In the Houston game, Winston had a 20 Yard or so pass to Evans called back and a perfect TD pass to VJax reversed when he couldn’t get his 2nd foot down. With those two plays he would have been over 300 yards even without counting all of the drops that game. It might not have been a great game, but I wouldn’t call it a “bad game”.

    This article sounds pretty desperate to find a way to support Jameis
    What other publication counts good vs bad games for a player? It’s laughable.

  5. Buc1987 Says:

    BuccaneEric75…let alone the 10 or so dropped passes by Evans in that game. There’s a helluva lot more to it than stats alone. For all the dumb stats and numbers that people like to put up it’s like they never even watched the game to begin with to see where the numbers cam from. Or they just choose to forget and just look at the numbers only. That’s why I’ll always say the only stat that matters is the win/loss.

    Then again..Louis Friend asked me last night if I even watch the games.

  6. Buc1987 Says:

    You’re right Johnny….let’s get with the program already and NOT support him…good call.

    87 I thought Houston was possibly Winstons best game. Other than a couple off throws and the interception he was getting big chunks of yards on difficult deep throws or intermediate throws consistently. If not for the worst PI call this year and literally 8 dropped passes it could have been a 325-350 yards; 60+% completion, 2-3 TD type day.

    1-2 drops per game is probably NFL average and we had 4 times that along with a beautiful pass called back for absolutely no reason

    Trying to make up stats from someone that does not like stats. Here is the stat that counts. 2-3 losing record so far. You never tried to make up stats for Glennon or anyone else. So don’t try now.

    “Merica’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, has played three good, solid games this season. ”
    Completing 47% of passes, 69 qb rating and throwing 17 times to a receiver who couldn’t catch while starring him down and a int is a solid performance?

  10. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Houston game wasn’t bad for Jameis. He avoided getting sacked by JJ Watt (with help from the offensive line) and threw several passes that were dropped. Nowhere near a flawless game, but not a bad one.

    But let’s not sugarcoat it, Jameis is 2-3 with his team. Nothing wrong with that either, as long as there is progress.

    Johnny “America’s Commenter” Dejay … I love the name; couldn’t stop laughing.

    In every game, some players have a great game, some crap all over themselves. Makes great stuff for starting media feeding-frenzies, but … TEAM is all that matters. Jameis gets that. The media never will.

  12. JollyRogerBuc Says:

    Really reaching for it there….. He’s 2-3… No need to make stuff up

  13. Buc1987 Says:

    JollyRoger….correct. BUT is he 2-3 or is Lovie Smith 2-3 or is it Gerald McCoy that’s 2-3 or is it Leslie Frazier that’s 2-3 or is the TEAM that’s 2-3?

    I say it’s the team…

  14. JollyRogerBuc Says:

    Myron Lewis!!! Are u still on the 53 man roster? Lol
    I predict a Buccaneers victory… The dead skins are too banged up in the secondary n offensive line.

  15. Buc1987 Says:

    DefenseRules…you’re right about the media. 1 day it’s JW’s record the next it’s Lovie Smith’s. I guess it just depends on who’s spinning.

    Keep up the good work. The redskins need some defensive backs.

  17. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    This season is going pretty much as we all expected. Fameis learning curve has cost us two losses this year. OTOH he should be 3-2 if our D had played up to their potential.

    Sunday is a pivotal game because it can really set the stage for the rest of the season. This is a young team that can either build off some success or perhaps collapse with any more adversity.

  18. PRBucFan Says:

    In a way he’s 3-2?

    In a way that’s nonsense.

    You are what your record says you are.

    And tat goes for everyone on the Bucs 87′.

  19. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I don’t think Winston has played ANY solid, good games this year. He’s played a couple acceptable ones. He’s played like a rookie.

    That doesn’t mean he sucks though.

    It’s a process, and not just for him. The offensive line is going through a provess as well. As it improves in pass protection, he’ll improve. Their destinies are intertwined at this point.

    And I actually agree that this article is stretching things a bit. Especially when you give Winston credit for a win that never happened. As a “leader”, it’s his job to hold teammates accountable too. Yes, Evans dropped passes. Winston needs to become the guy that stops that from happening by holding Evans accountable. That comes with time. He also has to earn the respect of his teammates.

    He’s moving in the right direction. Don’t give props unless htey are earned. Someone dropping passes is not the same as earning anything.

    Please don’t create a separate Win/loss for Jameis…. I want kid to do as well as anyone, but his record is the Team’s record.
