Tracking “Triggers,” Jameis-Style

America's Quarterback talks defense

America’s Quarterback talks defense

Two weeks ago, defensive coordinator Mike Smith spoke of how he is relying on America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, to help him defensively.

Today, Joe asked Jameis whether he’s had other defensive coaches do the same thing.

“Yeah, Coach [Lovie] Smith was like that last year. I think that’s the type of relationship that you’ve got to have, especially with your quarterback, because if your quarterback is seeing some triggers that your defense is giving, you better believe the other quarterback is going to see the same thing,” Jameis said.

“So definitely. And I’m asking him some stuff that I need to know because they have a lot of different looks on that side of the football. And they look great over there. And definitely, getting a chance to see different looks and to experience different situations on that defensive side of the ball helps me out tremendously.”

Joe loves Jameis and Mike Smith working together. Just think of how much more Jameis will learn this offseason with fresh looks to study in practice, and throw in what a professional Smith is when it comes to teaching and interacting with players.

Dare Joe say that alone was a great plus of firing Coach My Scheme.

    I agree

    If this coaching staff finds quick success and can make our Bucs super bowl contenders, i can see Smith hanging around a bit. If he starts to see Tampa as his best chance to get a ring then why would he go running off for another, new uphill head coaching gig?

    And Jameis just gets me so excited for the season. He seems very calm and established as the face of this franchise.

    Our improved defense will absolutely challenge our offense to be better…..even though the offense is essentially unchanged.
    Our Dbacks will help our receivers & Jameis…….our Dline will help our Oline and our changed scheme should really improve Jameis’ ability to read different defenses.
    If our D is going to be unpredictable it starts with them being that way against our offense in practice.

    I hope it’s changed in one area: WR health & depth. That was the O Achilles Heel last season…

    Winston said Lovie was like that last year. Nice try, Jameis, nice try.

  6. Buc1987 Says:

    Lovie made Jameis’ practices easier by running that crappy scheme.

    That’s what I took from all this and damn that can’t be good.

    Good riddance for the 1,023rd time.

    @Joe…you’re cranking some stuff out today man, for that you’re OUR rock star!

    He needs to leave the Eagles thing alone

    Huge !

    Just because Jameis ran the O against Lovie’s D, you actually study and scout the other team’s defense and your scout team runs their defense in practice, not to mention Jameis is a film junkie, you throw for 4000+ yards because you see what the opponents defense is giving you and what they are taking away, even though we were hamstrung with second/third tier receivers, they still couldn’t stop ME, only ME stopped ME.

    Go Bolts

    I’m loving this guy more and more with every interview he does. Im an FSU fan but was a little skeptical about Jameis but after his post game interview at the end of the season I feel like we have a franchise QB and true leader. Man he’s impressive!

    Stupid with this coach my scheme. Come up with something new mr trailblazer for the far right klan. Jameis gives Smith credit for something good he did but you klowns don’t wanna hear it. It’s not like Jameis was pining for him to come back or something !

  13. Buc1987 Says:

    David why, why, why does it bother you so much?

    Is someone forcing you to come to this site?

    Are handcuffed in front a computer screen?

    If not then stop fking whining all the time about your precious Lovie.


    Just take your black power and go away!

    Coach my scheme is money. I laugh everytime

    Some of you fools are clowns who need a couple rounds in the gloves. Back to football! I like the fact that JW is building a solid relationship with M.Smith. We are building something special y’all. Our Owners and GM get along great. The GM and HC get along great. The HC and DC have a history together. JW hanging with DS76 knows the kicker and Cassanova. LD54 hanging with Kwon. Daryl and extra coach. Grimes is Vernon’s guy. Vincent mentoring Mike. Stocker the professor of the new offense. I can go on and on.

    Side Bar: Alan Cross tape looked good don’t sleep on him.

  16. Sacbuc$ Says:

    Oh yeah I forgot JW knows Noah too. I’m so glad we got this kid. It’s about Dam Time.

    Here’s some more nuggets for All you. Aaron Brooks/Michael Vick/Cam Newton. Josh Freeman was good when they had to respect his running ability. Josh Johnson just got pick up by the Ravens but all we wanted to do with him was run end rounds. Lol

    My Point: How much more time we gone WASTE!

    Maybe Mike Smith’s no nonsense approach when it comes to penalties can rub off on the offense. This team will go as far as they want to go. Eliminate costly errors (penalties, turnovers and dropped passes) and get back to the fundamentals. I am looking forward to Jameis Winston and Robert Aguayo reuniting to lead this team for the next decade.
