It’s Jameis’ World

July 28th, 2017

His team.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. We all hear how America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, is a leader.

Hall of Fame linebacker Jack Ham once said that term is so overused it is “rhetoric.”

Well, yesterday at One Buc Palace, Bucs rookie O.J. Howard gave an example of just how much the Bucs are Jameis’ team and that his teammates really do follow him around as if he’s the Pied Piper.

Howard was asked about how he is connecting with Jameis and he gave a very cool response.

“We’ve done a lot of off-the-field work in the offseason and that’s all because of him,” Howard said. “He wants to get better; he wants me to get better; he wants to get our connection down. That’s everybody – he has all the receivers like that, all the tight ends. He’s just the ultimate competitor. There’s a ‘true competitor,’ which is also really good, but the ultimate competitors, they don’t get any better than that and that’s what Jameis is.

“He wants everyone around him to be great, and he’s a great player. I feel like once you’re around great players, you become great. That’s what I think about him when I see him.

“Every day he just comes up to me and says, ‘Let’s go.’ He doesn’t say a lot, but he says, like, ‘Hey, I expect you to make those plays.’ He expects a lot out of me, and when he says it it kind of makes me say, ‘Okay, let’s go. I understand what you mean.’ That’s all he does and that’s enough.”

Now how cool is that? Heck, just reading that Joe wants to run out onto the practice fields at One Buc Palace and slam into blocking sleds.

Not sure about you, but those quotes from Howard have Joe worked up on this Friday morning!

    Jameis will go down as the most important buccaneer of all time in a very short amount of time. No disrespect to the great Warren Sapp or Lee Roy Selmon. Jameis led buccaneer teams will do what no other buccaneer team could accomplish and that is consistently contend in the playoffs. The days of the under achieving dungy the clown are over. Multiple Lombardi’s for jameis guaranteed. he wont settle for anything less.

    Evans said the same thing. Something like his prep is second to none. Meanwhile the def is/was led by a gaisha in a kimono. But that’s none of my business so I’ll just drink this tea.

    tmax- let’s see one playoff game before the multiple Lombardi guarantee-
    last season seemed like a mental choke job down the stretch to me. Not what it takes.
    I was at the NOLA game.

    Tmax, you almost pulled it off. Almost. Yes after 16 years the Dungy days are still over.

    yes i agree with tmaxcon, i did love me some Doug Williams, and Brad johnson, but young jameis is going to go down as thee greatest QB in bucs history, i do believe barring injury, he will be a HOF and my opinion maybe one of the best to ever play the position, i also believe we will be in multiple superbowls, and will win our share with this outstanding young man, when i see jameis i see brett favre, he’s going to make throws you hate INT’s and throws you will swear you don’t know how he did it, his drive his leadership and competitiveness cannot be measured. this offense is something we have never witnessed in tampa out of our beloved bucs ever. i expect big things from this club, and i am tickled pink about it. go bucs, go jameis, and fire them mofo cannons!!!!!!!!!

    “Jameis World”??? Since the minute he walked into the building. Just ask any Nole fan on here.

    It’s all Jameis’ world and we’re just taking up oxygen

    Did you see Tom Brady throw that int at the end of the first half of the SB?

    Guess he sucks eh?

    Sometimes you get the bear…sometimes the bear gets you. #3 is still a pup with two years of experience. If Brady can CHOKE an int that by all rights should have closed the show on that game….a 2nd year rookie is entitled to some mistakes as well.

    Again life is graded on the curve…can you tell us a QB who had more yards his first two years…why no. Do you recall Peyton Mannings interceptions his first two years?

    Manning 43 ints #3 33 ints in their first two years. I can see you now on the Colts fan boards if the internet has been around…pointing out how much the Colt fans shouldn’t get the hopes up…wait till he wins in the post season indeed.

    I hear you. Kids 23 and coming into his third year wanting nothing but continuous perfection so let’s give em a break. Also thanks for the Manning to Jameis int ratio. That makes me feel refreshed.
