What Jameis Winston Was Doing At 5:30 A.M.

November 30th, 2015

jameis 0924NFL Network insider/reporter Ian Rapoport shared quite a nugget on Twitter yesterday morning.

Per Rapoport, America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, is the first Buccaneer to arrive for work daily, and Jameis is lifting weights at 5:30 a.m. on Monday mornings at the team facility.

Rapoport finds it noteworthy that these facts seem to clash with “pre-draft talk” about Jameis. Rapoport must have been listening to Peter King and other national types who were painting Jameis as a potential problem and, certainly, a healthy notch below Marcus Mariota.

Joe wonders who will be the wise Bucs player to approach Jameis and demand to know his work schedule and insist on matching him stride for stride.

    Evans could be number 1 on the list and it owuld help GMC to get some fire in his play

  2. Joseph Mamma Says:

    He was lifting at 5:30, then going over strategy. With his attorney.

  3. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    Remember when Chris Landry said Jameis was uncoachable and lazy? Remember when he said that a player with red flags like Jameis’ would never be a success in the NFL?

  4. Miguel Grande Says:

    You would think he would be too sore to lift this am

    I don’t remember much of that talk. Maybe a few guys but not most.

    “He was lifting at 5:30, then going over strategy. With his attorney.”

    Possibly working on his countersuit which he’s going to win and leave that chick broke as a joke.

    Owns the locker room and this kid is going to own this town one day.

    There hasn’t been one report of Jameis doing anything stupid off-the-field for a really long time, which is more than we can say about Johnny Manziel. The kid has been working his a** off to be a guy his teammates and fans could respect. I think he has been doing that. I’m sure there’s some folks here that could tell some stories of things they did in college that they wish they hadn’t. Kids (not just football players) do all kinds of stupid things in college. Let’s move on folks.

    The workouts seem to be taking effect. JW seems to have put on a lot of size.

    Why does no one ever put any stock into Jimbo Fisher saying that he is extremely hard working and very coachable ?

  12. orlbucfan Says:

    This jury’s been out on Famous Jameis since the Bucs drafted him. However, facts are facts: he’s kept a clean slate in terms of off-the-field hijinks. Final 5 weeks will be interesting, to say the least. Go Mighty Bucs!!

  13. Aristotle Says:

    I’m proud we have Winston!!! Having him as a QB doesn’t have me fearing 3rd downs like before. 3rd down was a death sentence before. He would be better if players caught the passes better cough cough Evans cough

    @ Dave,

    Because all college coaches publicly support their guys. It would hurt recruiting if they didn’t. Just like Meyer did with Tebow, Sumlin with Manziel, and Mack Brown did with Young. It a part of the job.

  15. Fsuking Says:

    Jimbo said nothing even close to that about E.J Manuel. He just kept saying the word “potential” in regards to the walking void of talent that is E.J. As an FSU fan, I should have been stoked to have Ponder and E.J both go in the first round. Instead, “WTF are you doing?” was my initial response both times. Jimbo knew they didn’t have NFL potential.

    Mike Evans is having a great year. Not perfect by a long shot, but he did well in helping the Bucs win 5 games. If he was perfect, the Bucs would have won couple more games. Nevertheless, he is improving all the time.

  17. No better way to say it Says:

    @FSUKing I believe Ponder had and still has potential. Only 1 or 2 of Ponders targets are still in the NFL from his time with the Vikings I think which are Kyle Rudolph and Wright I think Rudolph didnt develop as much as everyone thought he would. Then Wright is average if that..

    Simpson , Oramashadu (sp?) , Jenkins , Harvin are all out now I believe.

    I was pretty surprised to not see a team grab him after the Raiders let him go. He did pretty well having nothing to throw too.

  18. White Tiger Says:

    I’ll reserve my final judgement until I see how he handles SUCCESS (and I don’t just mean a few wins in a row, mostly against tomato can opposition…0.
