Blocking Jameis

August 20th, 2017

Whatever it takes.

There is a lot to like about the football passion and the winning mentality of America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston.

And there are things that make you cringe, too.

This particular item makes Joe want to jump off his Hooters bar stool and scream for joy so loud it freaks out the servers,and at the same time, it makes Joe want to do a facepalm.

Former NFL offensive lineman Brian Baldinger was highlighting a pass by Jameis from Thursday night on Twitter, praising what a good job Jameis did of continuing to look downfield when the pocket was collapsing, and go through his progressions to find Adam Humphries on a key third down conversion (nice catch by Rudy, too!).

Joe will let you watch the video first, and keep your eyes on Jameis the entire time.

Check it out, Jameis was ready to block downfield for Humphries! No joke.

When Joe sees that he gets so friggin’ fired up. A quarterback wanting to block downfield for a receiver? How cool is that!

But once the head rush wears off, it’s scary as hell. The last thing you want your franchise quarterback to do is try to lay out a linebacker.

Joe gets totally what Jameis is trying to do here. But easy, big fella. There is no block in a preseason game that is more important than you Jameis, and maybe not a regular season game. The Bucs need you more than any block.

Love the passion and desire there Jameis. But take it easy.

    I have no clue what you’re looking at but he was not even close to blocking anyone

    2 words: ryan fitzpatrick…. that is all jameis needs to know so he doesnt block downfield

  3. Pete Mitchell Says:

    im soooo ready to watch this team dismantle the Dolphins.

    Dusthty…no doubt…a shoulder injury for Jameis and Fitz at QB for the rest of the season? The Horror…the horror.

  5. Buc believer Says:

    What am I missing in Jameis body language Joe that tells me he was going to block? I see him following the play right up to the end but I see nothing that tells me he was about ready to get into the mix.

  6. JameisDungy Says:

    Seriously why is this still happening?

    Why hasn’t Dirk got through to Jameis that blocking is no go? He got that dumb penalty against the Cowboys because he was too close to the RB and felt like hitting somebody.

    Love Jameis, but the blocking stuff is some of the worst decision making I’ve seen from a QB. All that effort to block, hit someone, then when he’s asked to pass the play its going to be inaccurate. Don’t put any more pressure on your hand and shoulder.

  7. Joe Says:


    If Jameis was not of the mind to block, why was he running downfield?

    aguayo missed his only attempt in chicago last night of 49 yards…he really can’t kick for sh*t…look at the replay – his kicks are all squibbed – he is so done – dude became a real dud

  9. Kobe Faker Says:

    Kobe is beginning to agree with those that state that the key for the 2017 season is the offensive line

    there is instant pressure in front of jameis and he has to immediately slide in the pocket

    1 of jameis great skillset is he is always looking downfield while at the same time,his feet is moving away from pressure. its really amazing to see but you dont realise how badly the offensive line is getting blown backwards

    offensive line is looking shakey so far. Kobe thinks having both hawley and ali 2/5 together in the lineup is more secure/cohesion than having only ali 1/5

    I saw it Joe. If hump stayed on his feet and froze the defender for a second Jameis was ready to block. Not smart but you gotta love the Passion

  11. mark2001 Says:

    Glad to see that the amazing and breathtaking sight of the giant wind chimes, chair, pencil, and shoes in Casey, Illinois this summer (not far from his Alma Mater), didn’t dull Joe’s football sensibilities and insight.

  12. CalBucsFan Says:

    24…..that’s the number of feet between where Hump was going down and JW was tip-toeing. That’s also the width of 2 very generous traffic lanes on the freeway and almost 3 lanes on a city street. The camera angle must have tricked you Joe, there was more space between JW and AH than the Long Beach Grand Prix track width. LOL, I almost fell for it too!

    This is the same play though that it sure looked like Jameis crossed the line of scrimmage before he passed and I wondered why the Jags HC didn’t challenge it….but of course that’s more visible on a different camera angle.

    It was his intent as he ran forward. We know this, because he has done it many times.

    I saw that two. I have not reviewed it since game day, but I think he threw it just before his foot touched the ground across the line.

    Jameis is almost always willing to block downfield. This however, is not one of those times. Idk what you are talking about?

  16. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    For me, I watched this several times……it looks to me that Jameis was putting himself into a position to recover a fumble rather than blocking……it as too late for that.
    Now would Jameis block if the situation came up…..yes…it’s his nature.

    My question here is: Where is everyone else?

  17. Joe Says:

    If Jameis wasn’t looking to block, why did he trail the play? Never met a football player who was trailing a play just for a workout.

  18. Joe Says:


    Jameis was ready to block.

    I know I’m a huge homer…and love #3…and he does make some bad choices…don’t want him fighting in any game…but overall I think there has been a bit of an over reaction to much of #3’s game.

    Cam is a guy I would say is reckless with his body and it’s beginning to take a toll on his body. But Cam is a giant and so he thinks he can get away with it.

    I do not see #3 running recklessly…or blocking recklessly…and there are blocks and there are blocks…simply putting your body between a defender is one thing..actually throwing the block is another.

    I think #3 gets it but he does play to win!!!

    I was watching the Seahawks game few nights ago and I saw Russell Wilson blocking for one of his receivers about 30 yards down the field. I’m not against it, it I think that playing smart is most important

  21. unbelievable Says:

    Actually when Fitz was in the game, he ran out to throw some Blocks too on a running play. Guess Jameis is rubbing off on him! But seriously, we don’t need our QBs throwing blocks, especially in preseason…

  22. BaldBuc Says:

    I agree with you Joe. I do, however, like that Jameis plays aggressively to the whistle and is keeping his head on a swivel. I haven’t been more excited for a season since I can remember. Thanks for the passion you put into everything Bucs!

  23. Curry-Winston Says:

    So what if he blocks…he’s a fricken football player…i can tell those of u who actually played da game and those of you who havent…blocking is an essential part of the game, its extremely hard for jaboo not 2 block wen 1 block can b da difference between 5yd gain and a td….jaboo way too competitive 4 he is every bit of 6’5, look at him standing onside mike and you’ll see how big homie really is….he can easily block and lb without injuring his throwing arm…cmon fellas its football not soccer or tennis…we talking about men amongst boys…perfect example, i forgot what game it was da noles was playing and jameis lays a block da turns and 20 yd play into a touchdown….

  24. Curry-Winston Says:

    Here’s another one for u lil babies…jameis is a manchild lol………just so u kno dats a d lineman…lmao

  25. @SarasotaJay Says:

    I respectfully disagree. He did not look like he was gojng to block

  26. John F Says:

    Not seeing what you’re seeing. No hint of a possible block.
