New Daily Tracking Of Jameis

May 19th, 2017

Jameis’ QB coach has jacked up analysis

Your Buccaneers have ramped up their process to make America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, a more polished, precise and successful.

Fascinating stuff.

Here’s the deal, QB coach Mike Bajakian is now tracking every single throw of his three quarterbacks through offseason training — drills, etc.

“We chart that every day, every single one of [Jameis’] throws. Every single one of all of our quarterbacks’ throws are charted on a scale of precise, accurate and off.”

“I give that [data] to them on a daily basis. Tell them where they were and how they compared to the previous day. … We’ll look to improve that on our [coaching/player] end, with the ability to turn a receiver into a ball carrier.”

That didn’t happen last year, Bajakian told Joe. It’s a byproduct of a new “emphasis on accuracy.”

“Our analytics guy, Tyler Oberly, is out there, and I had him charting total throws, just as a barometer to know when I may need to pull off or add more. Kind of like a pitch count. … Then as we talked about it. I talked about it with Dirk [Koetter] and Coach Monken and I said, ‘Hey, as long as he’s chartin’ them, let’s chart the accuracy. Give immediate feedback on a daily basis. I know that’s something that our quarterbacks look forward to every morning when we first start the meetings. That’s the first thing I start with. They want to know how they compared to the previous day.”

Joe asked Bajakian whether it’s the analytics guy Oberly grading the throw or whether the staff looks at film to assign whether a toss was “precise, accurate or off.” Bajakian said it’s all on Oberly. He added that Jameis and his QBs all feel Oberly is on the mark with his assessments. No arguments when the grades come out.

Man, it’s so great to learn that the Bucs are going to the extreme — in May — to be great.

    @joe my thoughts are they may be using our RFID system to track the players and footballs.

  2. Buc50 Says:

    I wonder if that means more throws across the middle or just shorter routes to get the ball out of his hands quicker.

    Attention to detail!!! All winners have it. Good to know that we have it.

    I don’t like to lob stuff like this out there but it has to be said. I don’t think this happens under Lovie Smith. I said last year there seemed to be a different level of professionalism at One Buc. It seems to be growing this year.

  6. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    tNew agreed with that it seemed that lovie is a dinasaur and thought he didnt have to move into the new era of coaching and still be successful…if beleichek is doing it, might as well copy the best….love koetter and the offensive staff on this team, absolute professional and passionate about coaching and winning…my biggest gripe is the OL and personnel there hopefully im wrong

  7. Defense Rules Says:

    Just read a recent quote from Mike Evans (interview he gave to Aaron Wilson ) which ties in nicely IMO with what you’re saying about ‘attention to detail’ StPete: “We were in a lot of close games with teams that made the playoffs. I think we can be a contender. We have the talent. We have to put in the work. We look great on paper.”

    Love that line: ‘We have to put in the work’. This team ‘gets it’ and is driven to be great.

    Beautiful signing of Fitzpatrick by front office. Makes the team better & more competitive. PERIOD. Great job Jason Licht!!!!

  19. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Interesting that there is an emphasis on accuracy. According to some, he is the most accurate QB ever.

  20. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    I love the accountability aspect.

  21. Buc1987 Says:

    Jack Burton Mercer…repeat after me.

    Jameis is innocent and had consensual sex in the incident at FSU.

    Once you do that, they you might think he’s a good QB.

    Cas Observer: “over analyzing ”

    No way man.. it’s about time we stopped blindly praising every element of Jameis’ game. His short range accuracy is great. (It’s so great that the years of Freeman throwing at the feet of players in the flats is over).

    But his deep ball accuracy is mediocre.. AT BEST. No one should ever over throw Evans down field; and we saw so many wasted opportunities last year. Now with DJax in the mix, that downfield option is going to be there on a regular basis. JW NEEDS TO BE HITTING THOSE PASSES!

  23. feelthepewterpower Says:

    I like how the Buccs are Oberly analyzing things.

  24. Pickgrin Says:

    Good stuff. Whatever it takes to improve…

  25. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    87, LOL!

  26. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    At times Fameis has made some amazingly accurate passes he just isn’t consistent at times. Some people nitpick all his throws trying to prove he’s not very accurate but he improved his % from the year before and that’s not from dumping it off on a running back because that’s just not his game. He’s a gunslinger, always looking to throw downfield. As was mentioned about JFro throwing at recekvers feet this isn’t his problem it’s throwing high which I think comes from being a pitcher, he releases his pass too high in his throwing arc. He brings it down and receivers don’t have to jump for passes there will be more yac and bigger plays.
