“Truly Phenomenal”

October 31st, 2015

jameis 0825bA former Buccaneers quarterback is floored by what he’s seen from Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback.

It’s all right here on video from Chris Simms, the 35-year-old who played six NFL season and has emerged as one of the best NFL analysts around.

“They don’t give him anything easy,” Simms told Bleacher Report’s Team Stream. “As far as what he has to do at the line of scrimmage, they are getting a run game, but man, the quality of throws that he has to make game in and game out, down the field, into tight windows, off of play-action, truly phenomenal. He really doesn’t get many easy completions.”

Simms went on to call Jameis a great rhythm thrower.

In comparison to Marcus Mariota, Simms said Jameis is a big step ahead. He believes the Titans offense is built around — and stunted by — Mariota, while Jameis is taking on more and the Bucs’ playbook doesn’t hold him back.

Simms says Jameis will become a perennial top-10 quarterback and likely ranks in the top half of NFL starters right now.

    Is anyone going to start MM on their fantasy team this week? I know MM performed extremely well last week. MM heading to the pro bowl this year without question. Schucks, 87, it looks like we def picked the wrong guy.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^LMFAO^^^^^^^^^^^^ THE MESSIAH will take the YUCS to the BIG DANCE sooner or later.

  4. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I just love when a former quarterback who never did anything worthwhile in the NFL acts like he knows things.

  5. Architek Says:

    Same haters still àround here

  6. Sapp, STFU Says:


    By your logic, there are only about 12 retired QBs who should be permitted to comment

  7. This Guy Right Here Says:

    Cant say enough about this kid.. That energy, enthusiasm, leadership, resiliency.

    Lovie could learn a hell of a lot more from Jameis, than Jameis can learn from Lovie.

  8. This Guy Right Here Says:

    In 10 years, watch Jameis become the 1st QB/HC in NFL history.

  9. Macam Says:

    Just because a guy didn’t set the world ablaze as a player, doesn’t mean he can’t see what’s supposed to happen. Especially someone who played quarterback in a complex system and knows how hard a job it is. To know how much better this guy’s throws are, and to have only played a few games in the league.

  10. Clodhopper Says:

    As opposed to a fantasy fiction writer who’s never done anything at all in the NFL acting like he knows things?

    @ BuccaneerBonzai

    You Sir get the dumba$$ post of the day award.

    Just because Chris Simms did not have a great NFL career doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a good knowledge of football.

    – He succeeded in High School
    – He succeeded in College
    – He succeeded in making the NFL as a starting QB

    That’s over 10 years of football playing experience….plus he was mentored by his father hall of fame QB Phil Simms as he grew up!!!

    Next time…think before you post idiot.

    Wow, thought it was going to be Shaun King again, lol

  13. Jameisbucsfan Says:

    By the end of the year the haters will love him and the lovers will start a jameis is God convent. I love it, go bucs!

  14. Luther Says:

    I really hate to read comments bashing a guy because he wasn’t a Pro Bowler. There are plenty guys that played at a high level that are just terrible as analysts. Dilfer and Simms are some of the best to listen to while guys like Steve Young, Dan Marino, Shannon Sharpe and Emmit Smith are terrible to listen to.

  15. unbelievable Says:

    Yup, Dilfer certainly comes to mind as another. Was a garbage QB, but is actually a damn fine analyst.

  16. R.O Says:

    Really BB… What does that say about the schmo’s on Comment Boards that give their un-educated Verbal Diarrhea (like you)?

  17. godzilla13 Says:

    Can you imagine if Jameis had a defense? His phenomenal performance last week demonstrated the raw talent this rookie has. Some of his throws were absolutely remarkable. The best experience this year as a Bucs fan has been to watch Jameis grow as a player. He is going to be a superstar in this league.

  18. Bucfan951 Says:


    So you really shouldn’t be saying too much since you haven’t done anything in the nfl, right? We all have to read your bs and how you are always right about everything! I guess if you throw enough $hit against the wall, some of it is bound to stick!

  19. Couch Fan Says:

    I was thinking the same thing BF951.

  20. M It Smyth Says:

    We’ll said Luther. That’s why I always use the “we got Debacled” schtick. When Emmitt Smith said that I laughed so hard I had to change my underwear. It’s also why I use M It Smyth. Loved him as a player for sure but as an analyst, not so much. It was rather embarrassing.

  21. grafikdetail Says:

    people never even played a down in highschool but think a former NFL player with a Hall of Fame QB as a dad is the hack? LOL

  22. ToesOnTheLine! Says:

    Winston looked pretty good last week. He did make some nice throws, moved around good in the pocket, and avoided costly mistakes. That was the first time to me anyway where he looked like he wasn’t a potential bust at worst or a game manager at best. I’m happy he’s showing nice progress, but I’m trying to temper my expectations if the Falcons game gets out of hand like last year.

  23. Fsuking Says:

    Yes there was a dumb comment made by that guy, but to be fair, Chris Simms sucked ass!
