“We Have A Mission On Our Mind”

June 15th, 2017

Locked in.

You can just hear it in his voice.

It seems if it were up to him, America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, would kick off the 2017 season Friday night.

Later this afternoon, Jameis will be interviewed by Jeff Cameron, he of the “Jeff Cameron Show” on ESPN Tallahassee.

In the interview, which was recorded already, Jameis talked about the mindset of the Bucs with “Hard Knocks” coming. Jameis was emphatic that the NFL Films-produced reality series to be aired on HBO this August will in no way be a distraction to the task at hand.

“We are just out here to play football,” Jameis told Cameron. “We have a mission on our mind and we are about playing football. We are actually honored that “Hard Knocks” is here in town to show us off.

“Of course, they are going to have a lot of things planned for the lights and the cameras and the action. But we are here to play football, man. We cannot let that interrupt the great plans that we have for the 2017 season.”

This just gets Joe freaking stoked! Yeah, Jameis may not be Marcus Mariota — and that is exactly why the Bucs drafted him. This dude’s intangibles are off the charts and his value to the locker room is virtually irreplaceable.

What Warren Sapp did with his cult of personality to will this franchise from the ashes to winners is the exact same thing Jameis is doing to this team.

    I love JW but lets be real on why this team went 9-7 last year. It had more to do with the play of the defense and I attribute that to Mike Smith and the defensive staff. Now lets hope all these new pass catchers help and Donovan Smith can pick is game up to at least average.

    To be accurate, it’s what Nickerson, Sapp, Brooks, & Lynch did w/ their personalities. All 4, representing their part’s of the D, frontlines, midfield, & backfield, led by example; and does anyone really believe the D would have been what it ended up being, if even one of them had never been there? Sapp drew the most camera/media driven attention, which didn’t amount to squat within the cramped & cracked walls of the old One Buc.

    I cannot recall one game we lost where I thought to myself damn that Donovan Smith he is why we lost. I remember Gosder Cherilus killing drives in Dallas, Aguay-oh-No shanking FGs left and right, and Jameis (Tied for my favorite player with Kwon) sailing it over a wide open Evans.

    I think Donovan is a solid LT with still a high ceiling. Evans is getting better James is getting better but for some reason no one wants to recognize so is Smith.

    Offense will not be any worse this season with all the improvements is should be better. It really comes down to if this defense can sustain the it had in the second half of the season. I don’t see why they won’t be as good or better in a second season of a new scheme and with some second year players who got plenty of playing time and experience.

    And Alaska I saw Jameis bail out the left side of the line , namely concrete shoes Smith by avoiding numerous sacks.

    “Hard Knocks” is here in town to show us off”

    That’s the perfect way to look at it.

    Joe, Warren said they were forged by fire 🔥 after being disgraced on national tv with Berman calling them the Yucs. The fire is back baby!

    @AASnowman Agreed. At the beginning of last year I had dreads and every time I saw a Gosder Charilus F-up I would pull some hair out. I’m bald now.
