“I Kind Of Got In The Way”

November 25th, 2015

jameis 1117America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston isn’t listening to his coaches, not fully.

Joe asked him about it today and Jameis said he’s proud to rebel in one area.

Sunday in Philadelphia, Jameis hurled himself into the offensive line throwing a block for Doug Martin, but Jameis isn’t supposed to do that.

He’s done that before and coaches have scolded him publicly.

Joe asked Jameis today if Sunday’s block was something that got him chewed out and was a mistake. Jameis opened up.

“I didn’t really block that time. I did a better job. I kind of got in the way. So that’ll show you that I’m really learning not to throw my body in there,” Jameis said with his tongue in his cheek. “But it was 3rd-and-1 and I will take that yelling at every single time. If it’s me and a defensive end right there, and Doug Martin needs to get one yard, and I can help him get that one yard, I’m going to take that yelling, man. Sorry.”

You gotta love the spirit of America’s Quarterback, but he simply can’t be blocking like that. It really isn’t a team-first move. The Bucs need him healthy and blocking at the line of scrimmage isn’t the way to stay safe.

    Lovin’ the passion from Jameis. I’d hate to see him get hurt from something like this, but I’m confident my man MG8 can step in and keep things going in a positive direction too. What a great situation to have two QB’s that are capable of helping this team win with Koetter calling the plays (though Winston does have that special leadership/drive that inspires all the players around him…that would be missed if JW3 ever loses game time)

    I don’t want him doing that on 1st&10 but 3rd&1..go for it…GO BUCS!!!

    Remember the-

    MG8 beat Jameis out in training camp and should be the starter…

    It would be better for Jameis to sit the 1st year and learn with a clipboard…

    Where are those guys now?

    Jameis’s situational awareness is such that you don’t need to be too worried about that being an issue. If you go back and look at all his interceptions at FSU and as a Buc they are almost always North of the 50 yard line and 3 and long. He usually only takes chance with his body or the ball unless the risk outweighs the reward.

    Stanglassman- because that was the dumbest thing said besides TRADE DOWN FOR OL WHICH WAS ALSO SAID. Anyway Rodgers is the only Elite to sit an entire year. Most guys (luck Brady Peyton Ben and many many more play right away make mistakes and change. Most guys just don’t change as quick as Jameis. His delivery in the red zone is so short by the way. Merrill Hoge was gushing over our entire offense and his red zone delivery on NFL LIVE. that’s when you know guys. Hats when you know

    Wonder what he’s working on improving now? First, it was not turning ball over, then 3rd down conversions and most recently, red zone scoring. Check, check and check.

    Wow isn’t HedgeHog the one who refused to put Jameis ahead of MariOta in his draft board? Funny how all that is changing 10 games in.

    It’s only 10 games. Let’s not put him in the hall yet. I’m a fan of Jamies, but let’s slow down. Vince young won rookie of the year once… Bust.

    Not saying Jamies is VY, but I am saying to just slow the hell down and let him develop. He will learn to not do it but it’ll probably be because he gets hurt.
