Jameis Proves To Be The Man

Doesn’t stomach losing well.

It is hard to imagine a rookie transforming a locker room, but America’s Quarterback, Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, has done just that.

No, the locker room has is not yet totally deloused of the losing culture and stench. But it is getting there. Who dreamed that the Bucs would go from 2-14 to competing for a playoff berth in December? You can thank one person.


In the NBC Sports video below, the creator, curator and overall guru of Pro Football Talk, the great Mike Florio, discusses how Jameis’ vile hatred of losing will sooner or later turn this Bucs franchise around.

    Those of us who were privileged to see this young man play in person at Florida State knew this all along. It was totally bizarre as Tallahasseans to see the national media’s coverage of him, which stood in total contrast to what we saw with our own lying, eyes. On the field maturity and an innate ability to lead men. I’m not excusing or forgetting his self inflicted wounds while in college but it sure is good to see him blossom into a positive source of hope in the locker and society at large. To me, as if my opinion matters, a true test will be this OFFSEASON. Can Mr. Winston stay focused after getting this season under his belt? Just how strong is his support system? How strong is his desire to WIN? Well I think THIS particular offseason will tell us all we’ll need to know.

    Is this more evidence that “some” of the players have not bought in to Lovie, that they are tuning him out a bit!!! That some of the players think if they can get away from lovie they can revive their careers!!! Don’t tell StPeteBucFan this, he will say that it is just make believe!!!!!

    I LOVE Jamies’s fire…. and you could tell in that jersey exchange with Gurley how mad and disappointed he was….unlike GMC who wouldve probably been grinning ear to ear.

    I was watching his pregame speech to his teammates and i noticed that GMC wasn’t in the huddle. Keep in mind GMC was the person who talked to the team before the game . NOT anymore. This is clearly JABOOS team and they better get on board. We need to stop looking at a rookie and look at a MAN !!i seen what he did for our NOLES ans he will do the same here . BUC NATION GETTING READY FOR THE BEST 10YRS OF FOOTBALL WE HAVE EVER SEEN FROM OUR TEAM

    Some buy in, some dont. I say you better get your a$s on board and buy in or the train will leave without ya! Jamies needs to fix himself too, those ugly overthrows are UGLY. But he knows that….and he moves on and answers with great throws and decision making…like choosing to run.

    I’ll never forget that first game he played as a Nole. I was bored and watching football just for prospective players we could benefit from. And watching him drive down that field caught my attention. I dont even remember who they were playing. But that first half, only ONE incomplete, I’ll never forget it, receiver caught it but was just barely out of bounds. I was tuned in for the rest of the game after that! And I was saying to myself we’d never have a chance to draft him, but then look what happened.

    Alright, off my soapbox guys. Just had to share why I LOVE this man and why Im glad he’s our QB. We’re going up from here….build around him, but dam please fix that D.

    Max…they played Pitt, it was his first college game ever.

    From USA Today 2013 :

    PITTSBURGH – With all the hype surrounding Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston heading into Monday night’s season-opener, it seemed like an impossibility that he could live up to it.

    Instead, the redshirt freshman went out and had one of the greatest games in the history of Florida State football in a 41-13 win over Pitt.

    Winston was 17 of 18 in the first half for 240 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed for another score as the Seminoles scored TDs on their last four drives of the half to take a commanding 28-10 lead into the locker room.

    He finished the night 25 of 27 for 356 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions. It was the highest completion percentage in FSU history with a minimum of 15 attempts.

    All of this against a Pitt team that returned eight starters off a defense that finished in the Top 20 nationally.

    I watched that game being skeptical coming into it.

    I thought let’s see this kid “Famous Jameis” live up to the hype.

    I was blown away.

  12. MadMax Says:

    Thanks 87! That was magical to watch….and I wasnt even a Noles fan. Im a Gamecock….but still football is football and I knew I was witnessing a fantastic player.

  13. Buc1987 Says:

    Max…Well I am the Winston authority around these parts. I know more about Jameis than I do about my own relatives. lol

  14. MadMax Says:

    Haha, yes Sir you are. And these players better buy in or else!!!

  15. Buccfan37 Says:

    You forgot to mention Pitt had a bad team that year when Fla St. beat them in the opener. Sure Winston wants to win bad, he was drafted by the worst team in the league. You can’t turn around as big of a losing culture as the Bucs have produced that quickly. Kudos to Jameis stepping up and saying this effort is not going to cut it.
