Jameis Blows Up In Loss

America’s Quarterback, Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, came of age tonight. Sadly, it came in a loss.

The Bucs rookie threw for his first 300-yard game, finishing with 363 yards completing 29 of 50 passes.

And just like his reputation, he came through in the clutch, damn near becoming Lazarus himself, rising the Bucs offense from the dead.

Jameis completed 18 of 27 pass attempts for 238 yards in the fourth quarter with two touchdowns.

None of this mattered to Jameis, who personally took blame for the loss.

“In the first half, I didn’t play good enough for us to win,” Jameis said. “I just have to make throws. The good news is, Doug Martin still did what he [does]. Mike Evans, showed up to play. Adam Humphries, showed up to play. In these situations, the quarterback has to show up to play.”

Jameis didn’t even take the easy way out saying St. Louis threw curveballs at the Bucs offense.

“We saw everything they threw at us,” Jameis said “O-line did their part. The first half and the interception late hurt us. One of those days man, one of those days. We had plenty of opportunities.”

    Jameis struggling against a good front 7 is not surprising. A bad Rams offense putting up 31 points on our defense is what cost us the game. Go head and try to spin it though spinners.

    Well time to get drunk of my ass see you all next season as we do 8-8 or 7-9.
    Progression, maybe we will see next year which is hell of a long time a way.

    Good thing there are some good video games coming out in till the 1st game.

  3. DallasBuc Says:

    He did have a few miscues in an obviously non-consequential game when you consider the lack of competitiveness among everyone else on the field and sideline. But when you look at the constant pressure, dropped passes, and inexcusable benching of Doug Martin you can see through the fog that Winston is the most professional talent this team has seen in years, maybe ever.
    Lovie Smith is immune. Above reproach. That should be his legal name.
    Incompetent Lovie Above Reproach Smith

    Kudos to Jameis who had a great second half, once the game was out of reach.
    Also, best game as a pro? I thought throwing for 5TDs against Philadelphia in a win was at least a little bit better than tonight’s performance, but I’m one of those stats nerds, so what do I know.


  5. Brent bull/buc Says:

    I’d say our d gave up 24. Special teams 7. Without Kwon and a banged up McCoy why would our d shine. Where are the studs? Our db are average at best. Our de very mediocre. Lovie has average talent on d playing average. Relax.

  6. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Tales from the crypt creeper…..What I saw was heart (Jameis) and sickness from the refs. Lovie is a losses and I would hate to see us lose again because of him. At the end if the day what has our D shown? Simple as that. Lovie you can’t fool me. I travel from the other coast to see what you put on the field. It is not acceptable to me. Coaches epecially just need to be mean. It’s called a love hate relationship. Bears fans warned us just like I warned Bucs fans about Schiano bringing good and not firing him. (I told folks getting rid of Schiano was bad.) But hey life is what it is. That is why I call on you season ticket holder…WE RUSH THE FIELD BECAUSE WE ARE HUMAN. Gosh this whole letter only took 60 sec of my time. Well worth it..Oh government how you have failed so bad..It questions me on planet of the Apes movies. JABOO WINS!

    Most of the passing yards that Jameis got in the second half were garbage time yards after the Rams had went to a deep zone prevent defense to run the clock. If the Rams would have played the defense in the second half that they played in the first half Jameis wouldn’t have gotten over 150 yards passing and would have gotten beat to death.
    I will give the young man a lot of credit though for continuing to battle in the second half after having the very bad first half. Was also disappointing to see him lose his cool a couple of times like in the Rose Bowl when he and his Noles were getting blown out by Mariota and his Ducks
    I still think Jameis will eventually be a very good player in the league, we all just have to remember that he is still a 21 year old young man and rookie

  8. DallasBuc Says:

    BrianBucs did not watch the game or thinks that the second half of this losing effort fits a repeatable mold. Stop saying little with so many repeated takes

  9. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Brian BUC I get it…we ran the ball to much and WON yet our D loss…

  10. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    By the way I used acronyms to get my point across. Thank you y2what?

  11. LargoSamIM Says:

    Yeah… mop up time “Jameis” … when it mattered, most of his throws were UNCATCHABLE ! I mean, I root for him and the BUCS, but you are totally ridiculous ! when the game was still contentious, he was VERY inaccurate…check the tape !

  12. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Large SAM you fool nobody. You remind me of that Saints fan I protected just because he was young and ignorant. Don’t be young and ignorant.

  13. grafikdetail Says:

    you get within 2TDs and hoping to force a 3 & out and the special teams give up a long run — would’ve been a TD if not for the hustle of Mike Jenkins — your leader is supposed to get in people’s face… that’s not loosing cool… that’s being a leader and holding players accountable…something these dam “coaches” should be doing

  14. godzilla13 Says:

    This was not Winston’s best day as a pro. In fact, it may have been his worst. Being a leader is defined by not losing your composure. He came through in the clutch? Coming thru in the clutch means showing up in crunch time and winning the game, not losing. I was embarrassed by the way Winston acted when he lost his cool. Yes, the contact was helmet to helmet on a vicious hit. Yes, he received a terrible ball spot by the official. Yes, Donald shoved him in the back and he stumbled like an uncoordinated klutz. Does not excuse him for acting like an immature crybaby, throwing a temper tantrum. I don’t know about the rest of you but I see a team becoming turned off by his rah, rah approach and emotional tirades. His throwing mechanics look like a baseball pitcher and he continues to be inaccurate when it counts. BTW Joe, the Americas QB routine is stale. He is not America’s QB because of the team he is on.

  15. finishers Says:

    Winston sucks and so does Joe ! oh yeah lovie too I’m done with all of you!

  16. Delurking Says:

    Hey godzilla13, I’d had been PO’d too and with the refs standing around like WWE refs looking the other way, instead of throwing a flag. I’d had been in someone’s face too. It’s called passion.

  17. Greg Says:

    Joe, we couldn’t throw the ball for the first 30 minutes, wasn’t his best game

  18. Go for the face Says:

    Godzilla- you’re a dork. You need to get laid

  19. Alstott40 Says:

    Throwing a game ending pick in the 4th quarter is considered clutch? Piling up garbage time stats is clutch? I agree it was the defense that did us in, and there were certainly a few bad drops. But anyone who watched the game saw plenty of wildy innacurate throws from Winston. Far from his best game and no way anyone could say with a straight face he did not contribute to the loss. Where can I buy these rose colored classes everyone puts on when when watching Winston?

  20. The original "Kevin" Says:

    Must have been garbage time. I turned it off and went to bed after theryre qb threw his third td. So sick of this teams soft defense. You cant expect turnovers to win games every week. This defense sucks. I think the bucs have set a record …a league record on how many backup no name qbs have came out to light it up against a single team. Charlie batch, derek anderson, case whatever last night…the list goes on. We are the worst defense against the pass. Lovie obviously puts the offensive pre game plan together and refuses to make any in game adjustments. All runs on first and second down until we are down by two or more tds….THEN the start playing with some urgency. Just like last week. Complete crap

  21. David Says:

    Winston does deserve blame for the INT and losing his cool some. But, c’mon fellas he was getting his ass handed to him in the whole first half and u could tell the hits were taking a toll. He did not stand in there strong and take the hit like he normally does he was covering up as he threw the ball. So yeah his accuracy is gonna be bad becuz he had no follow through. But not all their fault…but the refs missed alot of calls tonight. Defenseless player, helmet2helmet, unnecessary roughness, u name it.

  22. you suck Says:

    Man here go those lil mitches crying again.All y’all crybaby asses need pacifiers.We need more talent .Rome wasn’t built in a day .But the bucs on the right path.And if you ain’t down with the bucs.You can just suck it.

  23. Macabee Says:

    Franchise QB in the making. Ahead of schedule. Simple as that!

  24. Lovie Is Dog Poo Says:

    Jameis Christ = hope
    Lovie Smith = dope

    We cannot truly unleash the hope, until we smoke the dope.

  25. Ocala Says:

    Jameis deserves better.
    He is tale tented and has a drive to win like no other.
    The undisciplined penalties and drops are getting so old.
    I swear the receivers must have bought stock in astroglide and bathe in it before games.

    What can you say about the defense other than its embarrassing.
    The scheme is stale and the talent is awful.

    By the way I used acronyms to get my point across

    Acronyms use letters from the saying to spell a new word … you just used initials.

    You know, like NASA, you actually say “nassa”

  27. 813bucboi Says:

    even with everything that happened last night we still had a chance to come out with the win…that pick killed us at the end…jameis may have hit that dreadful rookie wall…the past few games he has come out struggling…its amazing how once kwon gets suspened, no one on defense has any energy…since he has been out the defense has played uninspired…we now know who the leaders are on this team and it aint gmc or lvd…it jameis and kwon…GO BUCS!!!!

    Brandon it’s called sarcasm and being drunk. Glad you checked though. And it did mean something at the time.
