“I Didn’t Show Up”

December 22nd, 2015

lovie 1110bYou want to pin the Rams loss on someone?

There’s a guy raising his hand at One Buc Palace.

He is America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston.

Few heard Jameis’ instant reaction after the loss on Thursday Night Football. And Joe’s got it below, via the 620wdae.com audio player.

“First half was definitely my fault. I didn’t play good enough in the first half for us to be successful in the second half,” Jameis said. “I just had to play. Everyone else showed up. I didn’t show up. And I just got to play, I can’t put us in that predicament.”

Man, Jameis sure says the right things. He also would allow zero credit to be given to the Rams for their lone interception.

    Oh “whoa is me” 🙁

    Cry me a river Jameis…..your season is over

    It is bothersome that Jameis looked terrible the first half of the last two games. His passes were inaccurate and many way too high. I don’t buy the total cause of this is the offensive line. Many times he scrambled left or right and still made the poor throw.

    It’s almost like he has to be 2 or 3 touchdowns down to settle down and start playing like we want him to. That fantabulous drive in the fourth quarter was a thing of pure beauty. Kinda like golf. One great shot and that 25 handicapper has hopes of the PGA tour. That drive gives Buc’s fans hope of what can be.

    You guys forget, that was Winstons big problem at FSU his first half of football was miserable but then he would come back in the 4th quarter. Sorry Winston but this is the pros homie, you gotta play all 4 quarters.

    Same o same o next year what will it be?

    One thing is Greg Williams was showing him a lot of different looks defensively and it may have taken him a minute to settle down and figure out what they were throwing at him. We need a full 4 quarters of solid football to win but it’s a better sign for me to see a guy that improves as the game goes on than the opposite.

    reminded me of the titans game, minus the catastrophic mistakes. the kid was too amped up in his first national game, and took 2 quarters to settle down. let’s hope he grows out of that stuff, at this point it seems fair to chalk it up to wanting to do too much during yet another “first” for winston.

    Yes Jameis has looked like a rookie at times this year. Thats to be expected. I have no doubt he’ll get it fixed or bust his butt trying. I love how he takes accountability also!! Lovie, pay attention you dolt.

    #3 has all the intangibles…a strong arm…I think he just needs to work on his consistency. He can make all the throws…alas sometimes he seems to miss them as well.

    He’ll have an entire off season to work..no baseball motion to deal with…I suspect he comes back next year a little more consistently accurate. He really doesn’t have that much farther to go to become a great QB. Start nailing the throws in the first half and he’s on his way.

  10. BrianBucs Says:

    Jameis comes into games too hyped up just like he did at FSU. And when he’s too hyped up he throws high and doesn’t take the time to read defenses and coverages. I think as he gets older and more mature and settles down some he will be more competitive in the first half of games and not always be playing from behind in the second halves. Of course the defense has to do their part also………

    quick question joe…why is lovie’s picture on this article? should’ve been jameis’ pic instead…kind of misleading don’t you think…GO BUCS!!!

    Jameis is the only reason the Bucs were even remotely in the playoff hunt. Yet some here are so quick to trash him. SMH
