Jameis’ Time Soon To Come

January 25th, 2017
High praise from former NFL corner.

High praise from former NFL corner.

Bucs fans crave a Super Bowl almost as much as playing a naughty game of Twister with Rachel Watson.

In some cases, maybe more so.

And that Super Bowl visit is just a matter of time, says former Steelers, Giants and Redskins safety Ryan Clark. Now an NFL analyst for BSPN, Clark was on the “Mike and Mike Show” yesterday. heard locally on WDAE-AM 620.

In a segment about the next quarterback to make his first appearance in a Super Bowl, Clark cited America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston.

Mike Greenberg: Matt Ryan is making his Super Bowl debut. The next quarterback to make his Super Bowl debut will be…

Ryan Clark: Jameis Winston.

Greenberg: Oh, I like that.

Golic: Wow, pretty good one.

Clark: I think Tampa is moving in the right direction. … I think Jameis Winston.

Clark later added the Bucs first need to prove “year in and year out” they are a playoff contender or a playoff participant. However, Clark said playing in the NFC South, which seems to rotate division champions so often, gives Jameis and the Bucs the opportunity to not only become postseason players, but make a run at a Super Bowl berth.

The conversation can be found in the link above at the 37:37 mark.

Joe wouldn’t bet against Jameis, especially if Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht can get #WeaponsForWinston.

    Learn to protect the ball and be more accurate and this will definitely happen

  2. Joeypoppems Says:

    I like Ryan Clark. And I always respected his opinion. I put more weight into him saying this than AP. And to clarify he said “next to debut” so he isnt saying next season necessarily. With all that said I kind of zoned out of the article after twister with Rachel Watson was brought up lol

  3. Roadwarrior Says:

    Needs better protection and more weapons and then look out.

  4. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    He does need better protection, that’s for sure. The right side of our O line really took a crap the last few games of the season.

  5. Stpetebucsfan Says:


    I agree that Clark’s opinion is an even stronger endorsement than AP’s.

    AP is looking for his next contract…a conflict of interest in terms of what he’s putting out there and even perhaps what his agent coached him to put out there.

    That’s negative and IMO I think AP does really like those three teams the best right now…but as I say the contract creates a bit of credibility issue.

    Where for Clark the credibility is exactly the opposite…his credibility rests on the strengths of his observations. He’s not going to simply spout off something he doesn’t believe because this is his new career and he’s putting his rep on the line.

    I don’t think the line is as bad as some think!!!!!! Could it use some parts, sure!!! But the offense needs balance!!! If the main way you move the ball is for ME13 with 4-6 seconds to do a double move, then the offense is pretty predictable. If we can find Receiving option 2-5 to get some yac and be threats for “explosive” plays you can wear out some defense, I actual run game will suck in the back 7 as well!!!! Bucs had almost no RB and TE this year that chip blocked and helped the Tackles!!!!!!

    I expect the offense to look pretty different in 2017!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!!

    True dat and an excellent observation. First I think we all agree that Gosder stayed in the league one year longer than he should have. Can’t blame Gosder..we’re talking a lot of dough for last year…could blame Licht/Koetter for not finding a better backup but perhaps he faked it well enough in practice and they had to put him on the field to realize he had ZERO tread left on the tires.

    I like Dot but he was a best a “servicable” tackle but he’s now getting health issues, has trouble staying on the field and hasn’t really had a decent season since 2014. I really like DOT but it’s a business and he has to go as well.

    As for your observation I agree completely…Stocker is fine when he’s healthy…but Brate is clearly a receiving threat at TE not a blocker. Having said that Brate is perhaps the brightest guy on the team…he realizes that and we’ve already heard how he’s struggling to get his playing weight up and I bet he’s found the best TE gurus to teach him the fine points of blocking.

    So if we don’t get Dalvin…my next favorite is Foreman. He’s large…we can go beast mode…and statistically he was ranked as the top blocking RB in the entire group of RB’s available this year. He consistent…he didn’t get his 1000+ running it up against cupcakes he put in ten games of 100+. (Foreman info courtesy of links provided by Blake…credit where credit is due)

    And his weakness…he doesn’t catch out of the backfield…could be a strength…he can go beast mode…but if they start stacking the box #3 does a hard play action fake and he still has a great 250lb blocker back there with him.

    NOSBOS…I’m not betraying you bro…I want Dalvin too…I guess I’m weak of faith that we can get him…lol.

    IF…Dalvin fell to 19th…and Foreman fell far enough in the second..to trade up a a bit and get him I would take them both. Can you say Alstott and Dunn?
    Can you say teams like Carolina that feasted by having two stud RB’s?

  8. Pickgrin Says:

    This kind of national talk can’t be bad for our upcoming crop of free agents to hear about….

    “Mr Licht, Eric Berry’s agent is on line 1, Pierre Garcon’s agent is still holding on line 2 and Calais Cambell’s agent called while you were on that extended call with Jason Pierre-Paul’s agent…”

  10. Poor Glennon Says:

    The same thing was said about Freeman. After his second season.

  11. Buccoon Says:

    First and next year second for brown.. If peterson is available. Let him write his own check.. Second round draft rb either usf mack or maffery. Send sims to wide out make payton depth full back..

  12. WhatdaBUCisthis Says:

    What are you talking about? Who is this Brown person you speak of, and WHY would we make lil a$s Barber a FB
    Yea, pass that to the left homie
    By far one of the MOST mind scratching post I’ve read in awhile. No disrespect homie. Too many holes to fill for a trade of your thinking

  13. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    You good wit me St.Pete😊. Realist!!! You hit on the head this team needs balance in the worse way. Look hate on my desire for Dalvin if you like I’ve given my theory on how we will aquire him more than once. But what’s strange to me is how nonchalant people seem to be when it comes to the RB position. They say “we can find one in the later rounds” I say how did that method workout with Charles Sims??? I said last night they have signed two FBs since the season ended(must be thinking of protecting something) and still haven’t signed Quizz but folks talking about #2 WRs and TEs. Really??? If its not Dalvin fine but I won’t be comfortable with the direction of this team until I see a RB1 on the roster yo.

  14. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    I hadn’t caught it but make Barber a FB??? Wow..

  15. BucsFan90 Says:

    Buccoon what a moron. Aren’t you the same idiot that said we need less black players on this team to be successful?

  16. Buc1987 Says:

    BucsFan90 and WhatdaBUCisthis…

    They also want Sims as a permanent wideout???

    Is this Madden?

  17. 813bucboi Says:

    @realist….the offense needs balance no doubt which will be fixed this year in regards to weapons….I think we get some good quality players in FA and thru the draft….players that can come in and make an immediate impact…

    but the think your overlooking the oline issues….we only have 3 quality lineman in marpet, smith and pamphile….our other 2 starters would be back ups on any other team while the lineman we have as back ups would be practice squad players on many other teams….

    we have to solidify the middle of our oline….the center position is the weak link in this group….pressure always comes straight up the middle…

    if j.zuhtta is available I sign him and make him our center….sign ron leary…let k.pamphile play rt….if licht can find a g/c that can come in and start in the draft that would be great but i’ll still sign ron leary….he has to be a top priority…GO BUCS!!!

  18. WhatdaBUCisthis Says:

    Buc1987 & BucsFan90
    I guess that’s what a troll sounds like huh… Damn lol I thought that was a ridiculous post.
    Gotta love these Madden GMs

  19. Derekbucsfan Says:

    I was listening to mike n mike when he said that. Ryan Clark is a huge Jameis fan and it’s refreshing to hear someone that isn’t anti-jameis and wanna bring up crab legs and other alleged transgressions from the past. He will continue to improve and once he has more legit weapons he can definitely be the next about to make a bowl debut

  20. Bucsfanman Says:

    Twister with Rachel Watson or a Bucs Super Bowl? I’m just going to say that if you chose SB……..well, enough said!

  21. Drake1905 Says:

    I really want the Bucs to get John Ross and then joe mixon,or Isaiah ford,that would address some of the Bucs offense needs,get a o linemen in fa and some other defense part in fa

  22. Dreambig Says:

    Jameis has all the potential, physical skill and attitude required to take it to the next level. Having said that, right now he is just a big ball of potential that needs to demonstrate that he can settle down, become mentally calm and play in the zone. That is a cerebral experience that you don’t get from jumping around like a lunatic in pregame. It comes from an intense desire not to lose and an ability to turn that feeling into executing with precision. In too many games when things get intense, Jameis’s performance becomes erratic. That has to change for him to become more than just a huge amount of potential. Jameis is good enough for the Bucs to win a lot of games just the way he is, but for him to become elite he has to settle down and develop into consistant deadly threat.
