Jameis: Training Camp Rain = “Adversity”

August 2nd, 2017

Sure, NFL coaches love practicing in the rain because they can’t simulate those conditions. Fair enough. But rain and the elements every day is a very different story.

America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, went there today after practice.

Jameis actually called the conditions at One Buc Palace “adversity,” after a practice that had intermittent rain.

“You know everyone is impressing me because of the adversity that we are facing already early in camp, like I said, with this weather. Everyone’s coming out here with a purpose – and that means a lot to me,” Jameis said. “Sometimes people can lose track of things because the weather, it’s humid, the tempo of practice has changed, we’ve got to shorten practice up because of the rain. People start to lose focus, but I’ve been very happy with everyone for staying focused. We say something in the building, ‘Every rep counts.’ No matter what happens, we have to take advantage of every rep that we get out there.”

There is great disagreement at JoeBucsFan.com world headquarters about the rain at practice and how that affects the team preparation. Anyone who listened to the last Ira Kaufman Podcast heard if flushed out in a firestorm of back and forth.

The Joe typing this sees the endless wet balls and soggy field conditions as a negative. Once is great. Twice is nice. Four out of five camp days is, well, adversity.

There’s a reason that giant indoor facility is under construction behind the practice fields, and it’s not just about extreme heat.

Also, Joe has to say that Jameis very likely is echoing what he’s hearing from Dirk Koetter, when it comes to the adversity line he spouted, as Jameis often parrots the winning head coach.

    This is why the indoor facility is such a big deal. Not just to hide from the rain but to prepare for games on the road on turf

    Again the Glaziers need to get their priorities in order. Wait! Check that, apparently they already do. Profits over wins. Hey nothing wrong with that. Murica!

    While the luxury suites and the NEW AND IMPROVED West gallery sits empty our opponents are getting full days of practices in during camp.

    While championship teams are dealing with skirmishes as they should be at this point in TC the Bucs aren’t even hitting each other. (Based on what I’ve seen)

    These owners put the team and coaches at such a disadvantage it’s no wonder why they have to hire a new coach every 3 years.

    The practice facility should have been the first thing built, wins over profits Mr. Glazier.

    It’s being built maxipad jr. What more would you like them to do? They were not required to build one at all!!

  4. DB55 Says:

    I’m sorry guys, I know everyone is stoked about this season as am/was I but little to nothing that I’m seeing thus far lends itself to a winning season. And, to me, the look on Koetter’s face shows similar concern even though he’s doing the absolute best to fake til you make it. Poor guy!

  5. Ben the GA Buc Says:

    Lol DB55. We’ve had 5 days of training camp. Take a Midol.

  6. DBS Says:

    This is not usual for this time of year. Nobody could look into a crystal ball and see a Tropical Storm would come at the start of camp.. It will get better. At least they are not practicing at 4 in the afternoon.

  7. BaldBuc Says:

    Enough with suggesting that profits are the reason we don’t have an indoor facility. Political resistance and egos are the culprit. The Glazers have Man U for profits. You want Culverhouse back?

  8. Bird Says:

    Catch 22. Afternoon practices = heat and potential lighting. Morning practices = wet ,soggy dangerous fields. Practice facility definitely necessary. They should try to stagger practices based on weather forecast in meantime to get best field results. I’d hate to see someone hurt themselves on no contact play

  9. Bird Says:

    Joe- where is the summary/notes from today?

  10. DB55 Says:

    Lol, did you just call me jr? Lmao. You have no idea do you?

    See if you had a clue you’d know that’s not how winning org do business. Take Dallas for example they spent more on their practice facility than they did their stadium. Imagine that? And yea they haven’t won anything yet but they did go 13-3 last year with two rookies hiding behind an oline with five #1 picks.

    So what would I have them do? Put the team before the accountant. Build an oline to protect your franchise player unless you plan to send him down the RG3 career path. You play in Tampa! you should have a dome stadium and practice facility. #mrsa

  11. DBS Says:

    Yes jr. Spent all that money and when was the last time they won a Super Bowl? Yes 13-3 is just another of the losers in line behind the winner. And they are spending the money. Just not the way YOU want .

  12. DB55 Says:


    Forgive me, not yet fully acclimated to losing like others around here. I actually believe in doing EVERYTHING you can to win games. Football games are not won with a philosophy of “just chilling everything will be alright”. Come on bro, I garuntee you the rest of the NFC south is putting in uninterrupted work.

  13. DB55 Says:


    You would chit your pants if/when the Bucs go 13-3.

  14. DB55 Says:

    Dbs prefers to sit in the fl sun rather than A/C. Anyone else? Anyone else prefer to sit in the Florida sun in the peak of summer rather than sit in the A/C? Show of hands please. Lol, are you a native Floridian dbs?

  15. DBS Says:

    No I wouldn’t. That and a Super Bowl is what I expect from all the hype of Our QB and receivers this year. Along with the improved Defense.

  16. DBS Says:

    Yes I am. Anymore stupid questions?

  17. stpetebucsfan Says:

    OK I have just one thought. When we open in S. Florida if we hit a frog strangler I expect us to perform very well. No excuses about rain this season with all this preseason wet practice! Bring on the Dolphins!

  18. DB55 Says:

    It wasn’t even a question, it’s called being facetious, look it up.

    Db55 are you attending every day of practice bud? “Nothing points to a winning season” give me a break
