Is Jameis Scoring Big In The Locker Room?

October 8th, 2016

jameis and vincent jacksonInteresting take yesterday by Vincent Jackson.

The struggling Bucs captain said he hears America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, welcoming all the blame for the woes of the offense. Jameis is quick to blame himself, and the outside world is firing a disproportionate amount of darts at him.

Jackson appreciates how Jameis has embraced the criticism — even when he doesn’t deserve as much as he’s getting.

“I love the fact that as a young player that he’s able to shoulder that. And he’s willing to do that openly,” Jackson said on the Buccaneers Radio Network.

Jackson rattled off a list of non-Jameis things affecting the offense, O-line issues, protection and outside receivers. And then Jackson quickly added this interesting one to the list, “something to do with the game clock and management.”

Joe wonders how much Jameis pointing the finger at himself is scoring him points in the locker room, especially among his offensive teammates.

Hopefully, it will lead to others playing harder around Jameis.

    There are a lot of warts on that frog and Jameis had been one. What will be interesting is if he cleans up his play and the other warts are still losing us games, will Jameis step up and call out the guys that need to either get right or get gone?

    On that list of things effecting Jameis vjax should have said …”me”

    Also who gives a rats arse about brownie points in the locker room. How about points on those scoreboards for a change.

    I for one thing vjax should be put into a situational role between the 20s and in the redzone. This offense is obviously lacking speed and cecil shorts should be given a shot to play more snaps with his speed. Hes a good receiver just injury prone.

    Bucs will never compete and play hard with soft arse leaders with no competitive drive and heart see 93.. A team is only as strong as the weakest link. Sure gmc is a good player with some skill but it is clearly offset by his soft play and lack of heart. 93 is a locker room cancer with a smile it’s the worst kind of killer

    It’s good that he’s willing to shoulder most of the blame because that is how it is. Turnovers have cost us ALL 3 games and the last 2 in particular. It will be nice when the turnovers STOP so we will have a chance to win some more of these games. Hopefully he has learned his lesson and will do a better job of protecting the football. The locker room is going to lose confidence in him if he continues to turn the ball over giving the other teams points. Why would they continue to have faith in him if he cannot show improvement? Go BUCS!

    Could wait a year for TBT to release the final injury report, or just do it myself. Good news is only person “out” is Cecil Shorts. Bad news is Martin, McDonald, McCoy, Ayers, Stocker, and Sims are “doubtful.” Questionable is Noah Spence and Grimes. At least the Panthers are missing Michael Oher. Expect a lot of LB blitzes to make up for it. Gotta get to Anderson or Olsen/Benjamine going to torch. But if the Bucs can take care of the ball, Carolina has a very weak D secondary.

    Oh boy, here we go again. The Buc’s are divided from with in again. Reminds me when we handed Goldson 8 mill. To spread his cancerous views of Schiano. I coached Atom hockey. When i said “you guys need to play your position and pass the puck. Positioning passing scoring…in that order. But you can see on their faces what they were thinking. That this message is for that kid and that kid. But not me.Of course parents are pointing finger at kids other than their little angels. I should have benched them all for conduct detrimental to the team. Eveybody needs to do better. Everybody misses head scratching wide open passes. Therefore everbody needs to point at the mirror. You have to do better

  7. Poor Glennon Says:

    QBs that turn the ball over alot. Have to say i need to do better. It doesn’t mean he actually means it. Ive never heard a QB that has 10 TO blame anyone other than themselfs. In a media presser. Chances are all the reasons other than Winston. That the Winston lovers blame like The defence WR oline no running game. Are who Winston is blaming as well.

    I’m glad #3 is able to shoulder the burden but I’m not surprised…and it does come with the territory.

    It’s common knowledge that QB’s always get more glory than they deserve for winning (see Peyton Manning’s SB season last year with Denver) and more blame for losing…see #3.

    QB is the most important position on the team but it’s not the only position. #3 is far from the only Buc having struggles right now.

  9. BucinJAX Says:

    PoorGlennon, it’ll be easier for many of us to understand you if you’ll use a service like when you post messages.

  10. BucinJAX Says:

    dang, spelled wrong.

  11. BucinJAX Says:

    Ok, one more time: Where is it when i need it?

  12. LakelandBuc Says:

    The Head Coach is responsible for this team, it’s his responsibility to make all of the tough decisions. It seems like the Bucs always hire these DUO Head Coaches, who want to wear 2 hats. Jon Gruden, Dirk Koetter call the offensive plays. Raheem Morris, Greg Schiano, Lovie Smith call the defensive plays. Bill Belichick, Pete Carroll, Marvin Lewis, Mike Tomlin, Ron Rivera, John Harbaugh don’t call plays.

  13. Eric Says:

    Were always good at everything except winning football games.

  14. Issic Haggins Says:

    Again until Licht quits the BS and gets A Running Back , any and every QB alive with only one weapon (13) is going to try and make plays and you are going to have more int’s, fumbles and injuries. You CANT be Successful with out a running game , can’t and won’t . You can only do two things on offense run the ball and pass the ball . If you can’t run it and you only have one weapon to pass it you are going to have problems. It’s not that our players are playing that bad it’s that our offense is the easiest in the NFL to game plan for. Again you can’t win with out a running game and Licht is 100 percent responsible , hey I like the guy but he has his head buried so far up his arss he is looking out his mouth!! The sad thing is , it’s not that hard to get decent backs in the NFL but it is hard to get people to realize they haven’t done a good job and for that everyone suffers. Owners, Fans,Coaches,Players, high draft pick qb’s , networks,communities………… BTW Rogers def isn’t any more than a utility back !!!!

  15. "That guy" Says:

    Well said poor glennon

  16. Mike Johnson Says:

    When you are winning, the sun shines bright. Everybody is happy..congratulatory. When you’re losing like the Bucs..There’s plenty of blame to go around. Its a cancer.s that’s metastized. Koetters job is to figure it al out. It falls squarely on his head. HE needs this victory going into the bye badly….like a hamburger needs a the fish needs the ocean! A win going into the bye could have a great positive impact for this team. Alls I can say is..Play like your lives depended on it Bucs come Monday night. Go..All out!! Get nasty..Get mean. Can they do that?
