VIDEO: A Jameis Hand Injury, A McCoy Batdown & The Annoyance Of Underwear Football

July 31st, 2017

Telling and exclusive training camp video here.

Joe must confess. Joe videos a lot of training camp practice just to study plays and evaluate privately. Joe’s even had a friend or two help shooting video for just this purpose.

There’s so much to see. It’s kind of like Joe at a Vegas buffet; there can never be enough plates.

In this Sunday underwear football video below, if you watch closely, you’ll see Gerald McCoy bat down a pass from America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston. But it’s underwear football, so the bat down isn’t quite real. In real football, right guard J.R. Sweezy would be putting a hurtin’ — or attempting to — on McCoy. Just look at the frustration Sweezy appears to show after the play.

On the pass, Noah Spence is coming off the right edge. Donovan Smith isn’t allowed to really block him, so in comes Spence, who ducks inside Jameis so as not to hit him. And then Jameis follows through on the throw and his hand catches Spence’s helmet with force.

You’ll see Jameis’ reaction. That’s a great way to break a thumb, as so many QBs have done just that way through the years.

Is any of this real football? Not really. Joe gets that it’s a necessary part of the game. But the video helps illustrate why Joe can’t get all hot in the pants about how everything that goes in camp — positive or negative.

    So, how many weeks will Jameis be out with the hand “injury”? Will he ever play football again or is he finished?
    Sounds like you didn’t read the content here.–Joe

    I hope the OL get totally frustrated and take it out on Cincy..then Jax but most importantly I hope they’re so jacked they can’t wait to tangle with Suh. Wouldn’t it be a hoot if they got Suh on the ground and Sweezy stomped on him like Suh did Evan Smith a few years back.

  7. K2 Says:

    Sorry Joe…just a little hyperbole. I thought it was in concert with the title.

    Really not appreciating the semi-clickbait title giving me a heat attack……

    Reminds me of when Freeman injured his thumb/hand in the Bucs 2nd pre-season game of 2010. Everyone was sweating over his missed practice time and whether he would be ready to go for the season opener…then the miracle/aberration (call it what you will) that was the “Youngry Bucs” 2010 season unfolded…Good Times.
    And yeah Joes, this site is sooo unpopular that you guys have to resort to gimmicking up your story titles to attract clicks lmao…get over it whiners.
    GO BUCS!!!

    He can have one of my thumbs if he needs it. I can still cheer from the stands with one thumb.
