Jameis Winston: “Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda Don’t Mean Nothing”

January 9th, 2017

Addressing the nation

Rough morning today for America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, on the set of ESPN2, specifically the Mike and Mike college football national title special.

First, Joe must applaud Jameis for nailing the roughly 15-minute television interview. Man, Jameis has a massive future in broadcasting when he retires from the Bucs in, say, the year 2031.

As if they were sadists, Mike and Mike asked Jameis to break down of all the playoff teams he faced this season and explain what it was like to beat some of them and be so close to joining them in meaningful January games.

“We had at least three games we could have one, but woulda, coulda, shoulda don’t mean nothing,” Jameis said while reflecting on the Bucs’ season.

Interestingly, Jameis talked about how familiar he was with the Dallas Cowboys’ defense. He specifically mentioned Lovie Smith running nearly the identical approach to Rod Marinelli, but the Bucs’ offense just couldn’t get it done against them on Sunday Night Football. (Remember: the Bucs defense gave the offense the ball three times in the fourth quarter after key defensive stops, but Jameis and friends stalled.)

He also added that playing against safety Eric Berry in Kansas City, and standing in the shotgun formation and seeing Berry staring him down, was inspirational.

“When you got a guy who doesn’t fear death on your defense, man …,” Jameis said in admiration.

On when the Bucs will be ready to contend for a Super Bowl, Jameis said he’s filled with urgency.

“I’m going to let everybody else count us out,” Jameis said. “You got to expect to win and you got to expect to be there.”

    Applaud Winston for raising expectations around here. Expect winning. Expect to compete in the postseason.

    Losing eats Jameis alive like it does us diehards.

    He cares, like we care.

    Like Sapp, like Brooks, like Barber and Lynch. He cares.

  3. BucGator Says:

    I think Jameis also just made a statement to Eric Berry to come play with him, also to administration to go get him!

  4. Tampa Tony Says:

    Great interview!!! Now work hard this offseason on limiting the turnovers and continue to improve. Sky’s the limit

  5. DB55 Says:


    The org is too cheap to sign Eric Berry. The glazier boys are perfectly content with a losing season as long as those tv revenues keep coming.

  6. Stuart Laake Says:

    Perhaps a little foreshadowing with the Eric Berry comment? He is a FA…

    Love me some JW!

  8. Mike Johnson Says:

    Love it. Just win Got.ammit!! Winning is all that matters in the NFl. Jameis has it in his blood. Kid loves winning. Hope the Bucs gets more winners on the team next yr with that..Burning desire. We are not that far off. Another good receiver and some more beef on both lines.

    If the Bucs got Berry..

    Hear you big time JD! He’d bring a ton to our team at the perfect time…he could help on the back end just as Brent Grimes helped our corner play this year.

    He’s an absolute inspiration to his teammates and his addition to our already solid team chemistry would also be a great addition.

  12. Tampa Tony Says:

    @DB55- that myth has been disproven over n over

    Only one cheap franchise in the area and they don’t play in Tampa
