Tandy Identifies When Jameis “Took Control”

December 14th, 2016

jameis 0825Yes, America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, is the unquestioned leader of the Bucs.

But when did he really grab that role?

Keith Tandy hit on that topic during an appearance this week on PFT Live on NBC Sports Radio.

The fifth-year safety explained that Jameis really sat back in more of an observation-type role until Kwon Alexander’s brother was killed in late October of last year.

“He just stepped up in, took control of the team and never looked back,” Tandy said.

Yes, 21-year-old Jameis grabbed the reins when the team was at its lowest, just after an historic chokejob at Washington and while rattled by the Friday murder of a teammate’s brother before a Sunday game.

In many ways, that was the first time Jameis fully injected his family theme to Buccaneers. The video of Jameis’ pregame speech in Atlanta was gripping.

    With last week’s loss to the New York Giants, the Dallas Cowboys are no longer the NFL’s hottest team.

    The hottest teams now are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Detroit Lions, who have five-game winning streaks. Who are the Cowboys’ next two opponents? The Buccaneers and Lions.

    I hope we continue to send the cowboys on a downward spiral….there’s a possibility that they lose 4 in a row…they cant afford to sit any starters if they want the #1 seed with us and the lions playing good ball….they lose these next 2 games with us and the lions winning they could go from 1st to 3rd if both teams win out combined with the an atl loss and eagles win vs the cowboys…..but we have to focus on us and take it one game at a time…..GO BUCS!!!!

    I thought jaboowins took over when he started running gasser with the oline. But hey when there’s a leadership void real nicas step up. It’s the way of the world.

    Except its not forced and phony like Ray Lewis.

  7. Dave Says:

    I think they can beat the cowboys IF the passing game steps up the entire game.
    On defense they need to sellout for the run.
