Jameis: College Ball “Doesn’t Mean Anything”

February 21st, 2016

JameismugMan, Joe would love to be a fly on the wall when America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, spends alone time with the Bucs’ 2016 rookie class.

Jameis is going to do a great job smacking these guys with reality.

Before the 2015 season finale, Jameis sat down with the Buccaneers Radio Network and talked about being a rookie after a stellar and, at times, controversial college career.

Jameis said he “absolutely” feels like he has to prove people wrong and shut up doubters.

“In college, you know, college is like high school,” Jameis said. You know, when you’re in high school and you go to college it doesn’t mean anything. When you’re in college and you go to the pros, it really doesn’t mean anything. You know, just with the history of people always want to see someone bust so they can say, ‘I told you so.’ It’s very popular. So guys want to see people fail. But I try to do my best to not give them what they want.”

The maturity of Jameis continues to be a mind-blower. It’s likely a reason Team Glazer felt comfortable throwing out Jameis’ security blanket, fatherly, supportive head coach Lovie Smith.

    Walking the talk. Keep it up young man.
    Go Bucs!

  2. The Buc Realist Says:

    How much use is a “security blanket” when it has so many holes it does not cover anything anymore?? You have to throw it out!!! Simple as That!!!

  3. BucNut2 Says:

    Joe’s great job of praising JW for merely stating the obvious. Far form proving he is some kind of leadership genius, this proves that he is not an idiot.

  4. darin Says:

    It’s not joes, nor anyones, job to prove that. You glass half empty guys are nugget suckers

  5. Buc1987 Says:

    Darin…it’s okay some fans are slower than others.

  6. BigHogHaynes Says:

    They didn’t throw him out Joe, he was BACK-STABBED out, that is the whole TRUTH!!

  7. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    God I respect a man that take pride in proving doubters wrong. Its a creed I live and stand by. All hail the future 👑 KING..

  8. The Buc Realist Says:

    The optimist says the glass is half full!

    The pessimist says the glass is half empty!

    The Realist says I am about to buy another beer!!!

    jameis Winston has done nothing yet. He still has much to prove. A lot of his throws are off at times. He’s had one good season. And on a losing bottom tier team at that. Before we continue to heap praises on him, lets se if he can improve. And he does have quite a bit to improve on. YEs, he has been a good one year QB. But that’s all. Just like the Buc organization, he needs to prove to us he can win more games and get us to the playoffs and a championship. There are and have been lotsa one hit wonders in a lot of professions. Lets hope Jameis is not one.

    No more Lovie the loser destroying the Bucs. Jamies the man with the new master plan

  11. BucNut2 Says:

    MJ- get ready for the attacks. Being realistic and not “worshipping” a guy who had one good year is cause for most on this site to attack. The truth into something valued here. Need to put your scarlet colored glasses on.

    Truth needs evidence. What’s your evidence? Coaches get fired every year for losing. And sometimes they are replaced by someone already in the building. That doesn’t indicate backstabbing. Losie deserved to be fired.

  13. The Other Side of the Coin Says:

    Winston excels. “I told you so”. 🙂

  14. finishers Says:

    hate this time of year!

  15. SteveBucsFan Says:

    So we should listen to one idiot who links to joebucsfan.comj that lovie was backstabbed? Maybe next time he shouldn’t suck.

    Then we got another tool that links MSN for some reason but wants us to believe that a rookie with only 1 good season isn’t good. How many good season should he have by now? 3? How many good seasons should a rookie have before we can like him?

    Douche bags

  16. Bucblake Says:


    He’s done nothing…except win rookie of the year. You obviously don’t know what your talking about!

  17. Bucblake Says:

    Furthermore, you should learn how to use cApS

  18. Mike Johnson Says:

    Thanks there..BucBut2 and Bucblake. I am immune. I’ve been a Bucs fan since inception. Before a lot of these fair weathered fans were born. Sat thru many losing season back in the day before the superbowl. So..the comments of ..Shut up..faze me not. I’ve never cursed or defamed Joe’s website. So..I won’t be banned. I am the..alter ego for these praise the Glazer losing regime. So its cool with me. Once one passes 50, they becomes..comfortably numb to media and postings. A lot of these posters would say nothing to me in public. At 6’4 265, I’ve still got a lot of my moxy. Jameis has had a decent 1st season. Butt..thats all. The challenge will be..Can HE..create a winning legacy .
    And can our Bucs get back on track. We have not done anything yet butt..raise game ticket prices and lose. TEAM means team. And thus far we are not a good or even average team. Time will tell if we can do it in the Glazers and fickle buc fans coaching time limits….2 yrs.

  19. Jameisbucsfan Says:

    In Jameis We Trust!

  20. Bucblake Says:

    Yeah, well I’m 6’5 325 and know the difference between but and butt

  21. William Walls Says:

    I know you are, but what am I?

    Oh, wait. I think I ended up at the wrong playground. I’m sorry.

  22. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Jameis Winston sucks.

    Man, I’m wiped. four 17 hours days this week. Ugh.

    Jameis Winston doesn’t really suck…I just wanted to get someone’s dander up.


  23. Ocala Says:

    Anyone that doesn’t think Jameis is on his way to being elite is living in their own dream world.
    As a 21 year old rookie that could be going into his redshirt senior year in college right now he was a leader, a winner, a play maker and quite possibly had the best mid range accuracy of QB’s in the NFL last year.
    Again he did this as a 21 year old.

    It’s so exciting for BUC fans to think the heights we can reach with Winston leading this franchise. We are on our way back BUC fans!!! He will lead us back to the glory days!!! It’s only a matter of time. Licht has esembled a young core to grow along with Jameis. That’s how u build a foundation. I have so much faith in Licht. He showing he knows how to build a team the right way. He’s been around successful organizations like the Patriots and has learned the blue print on how to build a winning franchise from the ground up. I think we finally have the right GM running things in Tampa. U should be excited for the future BUC fans. The arrow is DEf pointing UP or us. GO BUC$ BABY!!!

  25. @FamousKoetterBroy34 Says:

    Mike Johnson- you said spelled but butt and am bragging of your knowledge. I’ve avoided this site to not read the “Jameis has proved nothing” except he can beat Ryan and Brees in their buildings. That’s all. And that he’s a PRO BOWL ROOKIE OF THE YEAR VOTED BY MILLIONS FREAKSHOW ATHLETE WITH HEART. HES A RARE COMMODITY. ANYONE WHO DISAGREES IS FLAT OUT WRONG. NO OTHER QB GETS THAT THIRD DOWN RUN HE HAD. EXCEPT 2010 JOSH FREEMAN. THATS IT

  26. James Walker Says:

    Of course our ex-loafing first round DE pick helped Jameis out by continuing to loaf…lol.

    Always helps to have a mistake in your sentence that you use to point out someone else’s mistake 😉
