Jameis: “I Don’t Think We Had Any Struggles”

August 26th, 2017

Relentlessly positive

Nobody can ever say America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, has a negative attitude.

The Buccaneers’ first-team offense tonight didn’t score a touchdown tonight or convert a third down in the first half, but things were pretty good, per Jameis.

After the game on the Buccaneers Radio Network, Jameis was asked by well known homer announcer T.J. Rives about the Bucs’ struggles on offense. Jameis would have none of that wording.

“I don’t think we had any struggles,” Jameis said. “I think we had a couple of penalties that set us back.”

No, Jameis didn’t mention his interception in the red zone on a pass intended for Cameron Brate.

Donovan Smith was asked a similar question and said, “As an offense we sputtered.”

“We can’t beat ourselves like we did today,” Smith added. “We moved the ball, but we got to finish.”

Well said Smith. And, you know what, well said Jameis, too. The Franchise is a winner, and he won’t let rampant negativity into the Bucs’ locker room from outside sources.

    Which totally disqualifies him as a JBF poster eh? I’m sure a solid contingent of posters here will be happy to write off the entire season based on tonight.

  5. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    I guess it was the “headline”.

    Unfortunately those penalties where pivotal. As far as the interception goes, I would love to see the all 22. The decision looked good. Brate had inside leverage on the play and honestly he typically makes that play. It looked like something happened on his break or Winston just missed the throw, the tv coverage was weak. Peppers was keying on Brate, (which wouldn’t happen if Jackson or Evans was on the field) The only thing maybe was Godwin was 1v1 coming out of the slot to the outside or Sims dragging across. I really don’t understand Howard not being on the field for every third and short especially in the red zone.

    I think Koetter is trying to play this too smart. Trying not to show too much is important, but against a blitzing Greg Williams defense. A little game plan would be nice. Especially when 4 starters are out on each side of the ball.

    How about a screen to Charles Sims in the red zone!!!

    We have only run it one time against Atlanta…

    and he scored on it!!!

    I think they are just being vanilla and not playing at a higher level. Who needs practice? The kicker. Whose getting practice in preseason? The kicker. Koetter said he would be worried on September 10th if they didn’t score TDs. Me too.

    Get a clue Jameis, it’s gonna be another long folks. This team does not look ready.

  11. Doctor Stroud Says:

    I think that the referees had “struggles”. Almost as bad as the game in Jacksonville!

  12. Mike Johnson Says:

    Jameis is right. They had no struggles at all. They just could not score.. touchdowns in the red zone. Nope..that was all just..fake news!

  13. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Snap and clear.

    Id be drug testing Winston today for such a ridiculous assessment. On second thought not throwing a single touchdown in 3 games isn’t struggling it’s called failure, my bad! Even his old backup had a 96 yard touchdown drive with garbage at receiver and being on a new team. Sick of hearing excuses from this team.

  15. Eric Says:

    Starting to think Vegas might be correct after all.

    Do we know what happened on that Brate pass with the INT? It looked, and still looks, like he just let up on the play, although perhaps he was getting held? I couldn’t tell but did anyone ask?

    Also Jameis was solid last night – I 100% don’t put that INT on him since if Brate doesn’t let up even if he doesn’t catch the ball he knocks it down. Also Winston got f’ed by the NFL on that TD – that was clearly a TD catch, clearly. Finally you had Hump for some reason in the middle of the field also give up on a play – not sure if that’s where he got injured but he was wide open and the ball was there and he didn’t even put his hands out – it was baffling.

    Anywho Winston did fine and was under heavy pressure most of the night in a wet sloppy preseason game. He even took 2 sacks instead of trying to make plays and you bores that love boring football love when QBs take sacks (you must have really loved when Rob Johnson was starting for the Bucs if you love sacks against the Bucs). I’m quite encouraged by his preseason, overall he did great and it should be a huge year.

    Eric – There is always the Skyway for you… it’s so simple, drive up, jump off… then it’s over… no worries…

    Actually get an Uber and take it to the top so you don’t back-up traffic, that would be more polite.
