Giants DBs: Throw It, Jaboo!

September 28th, 2017

Growing reputation.

It seems Giants cornerbacks are drooling at the thought of playing the Bucs this week.

America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston is starting to earn a reputation among NFL defenders as an interception machine. How so? Consider Eli Apple, cornerback for the (0-3) Giants. New York has yet to pick a pass this season and Apple all but said that drought will end Sunday so long as Jameis throws the ball, documents Paul Schwartz of the New York Post.

“I think this is the week we’re really trying to get more turnovers, especially against somebody who’s definitely going to give us opportunities,” Apple said.

Added Giants corner Janoris Jenkins, “Jameis is gonna try to force the ball and get it up any way he can.’’

Stats show, at the least, Jameis’ rep for throwing picks is earned. In his last five games stretching back to last season, Jameis has thrown nine interceptions. That’s just not good. And Giants safety Landon Collins knows it, too.

Jameis “likes to squeeze balls into tight spaces, and when he does that, we have the ability to make plays on those type of balls,’’ Collins said.

Of course, the Bucs have little option but for Jameis to throw early and often because the Bucs simply have no run game that would even frighten a five-year-old.

Joe just does not like the vibes he is getting on Sunday’s game. At all.

    Way to beat the Giants is to run the ball down their throat. We can’t do that. Their secondary is one of the best in the league, and Landon Collins is an all pro safety. Need short passing game and some semblance of run to keep em honest. Looks like Vernon will play so the O line is going to be a key to keep 3 clean.

    Get excited. This is going to be a very fun game to watch. I like JW at home and with Jaq back and Spence going full speed at practice. Grimes at full participation. Eli won’t know what hit him on Sunday. I’m expecting Barber to have a 100 yard game. JW with 20 for 30 for 245 yards and 2 scores. 3 sacks and 2 turn overs by the D. We’ll be feeling good for that Thursday Pats match up. Goona be a fun week!

  3. Lamarcus Says:

    Yes Joe

    Everytime these opposing dbs make these statements before the games it actually comes true. Winston might just get multiple ints. It happens every time. It’s so easy to defend Winston is concerning. They will bait him and he WILL bite.

    Keotter should be smart enough to action plan around the turnovers?

  4. NOSBOS Says:

    You see SB,I mention what I mention to you last night for a reason bro. Psss..

  5. Lord Cornelius Says:

    lol Joe you better watch out or the Commish is going to lump you in with all the other negative nancy bucs media that seems to always secretly hope for a team collapse.

    Why cherry pick the last 5 games as a random sample size? Oh because it would make this look as bad as possible.


  6. Joe Says:

    Jaq back

    Is he???

    Spence going full

    Hes not full speed. He blew out his shoulder four days ago and is wearing a harness.

  7. Stud Says:

    Dude has 4 3 INT games in less than 3 years, might have another one this week as he isn’t learning from his mistakes. When you have Jackson, Evans, Brate, Howard, Humphries and Godwin or some combination of those options there is ZERO excuses to throw into double or triple coverage.

    We will hear comments like this from opponents all year. Defense carried this team to 9 wins last year they will have to do it again as Jameis is not a franchise QB

  8. ndog Says:

    This is the same kind of talk I read last week coming from the Vikings players and fans. You would think that someone that says he wants to be the best of all time would take these words and use it as fuel to get better, but apparently Jameis just cant do it as Denver said this last year, Dallas said this last year and nothing has changed. It makes me sick to say, considering how badly I wanted him here, but maybe we just picked a average player. I mean if this talk does not get you to change then nothing will. Makes me sick to see him not be what he has the potential to be. SMH

  9. Mike Johnson Says:

    giants have a great secondary. Jameis is going to have to scramble and run. Giants are expecting him to sit in the pocket. Jameis is going to have to resort to some of his ole FL State days and take off here and there if..we are to win. And our D line has got to play much better. This is a very winnable game providing we get some pressure on Manning. Can we??

  10. ECREDIBLE22 Says:

    JW is a gunslinger and going to stay a gunslinger only him alone can manage his play I think we go off on the GIANTS I’m going to say this WE WILL WIN
    GO BUCCS!!!!!!!

  11. mark Says:

    If Winston is so bad, please trade him to the Bills. You don’t know how good you have it.

  12. University of Seffner Says:

    Unlike all the Football snowflakes (Bandwagon fans) who are saying the sky is falling, I’m not panicking at all about this season. Jameis will be fine, and the ONLY thing stopping the Bucs this season is if Jameis gets injured, or if all of our starters on both sides of the ball end up in the Hospital. But I still trust the team. Along with that, I trust the staff as well. Speak softly, and carry a big stick! Go Bucs!

  13. 911bucs Says:

    “Bucs simply have no run game that would even frighten a five-year-old.“

    Line of the day

  14. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    One arm for Spence is full speed so yeah! I like a one armed Spence, he’s nastier. He’ll have to try NOT bull rushing now, hahaha so cute. Jaq is practicing, yessir.

    @ndog you’re right. The Dallas game not really fair though, he was under major”duress” those last 2 drives. A lot of elite QBs would have has issues.

    I’m more concerned about the coaching. That mini game showed some major flaws in the game plan on both sides of the ball. If JW continues to fail you might see Monkin’s seat heat up. Starting Smith over Mclain was baffling as well.

  15. Kobe Faker Says:

    “OJ Stocker will not get many targets because he is a rookie and thats final!”

    Koetter the clown

  16. Joe Says:

    Keotter should be smart enough to action plan around the turnovers?

    That works if teams are scared of a running back. The NFL is not concerned at all with the Bucs run game.

  17. Supersam Says:

    Read somewhere that Winston is top 5 in interceptions since 2015, others on the list? Fitzpatrick, Matt Cassell, and Matt Barkley and…. well you guys get the picture. Americas quarterback huh joe.

  18. 813bucboi Says:

    Winston has to be smart…plain and simple….dirk has to run the ball…plain and simple….GO BUCS!!!

  19. Oj "I Got The Juice" Howard Says:

    It aint Winston, it’s Koetter. Peyton Barber should be getting 15 carries a game. Instead we’ll continuously see Sims getting ran up the middle

  20. Buc_The_World Says:

    Bucs fans don’t fall for it, Joe pulls this doom and gloom every game. if we win Joe will start dooming & glooming for the Patriots game. If we beat the Patriots Joe will start dooming & glooming for the Arizona game (Joe must not get very many women with these insecurities…lol). Like the Geico commercial says “It’s what they do.” As for Mr. Apple he has 1 interception in his whole NFL career so for him to be talking like he is going to do something please.

  21. Greg Says:

    We need to take the ball out of his hands (think the Monday night game in Carolina last season). We never win games unless the defense or run game wins them for us; our QB isn’t good enough.

  22. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @Buc_The_World YEAH! He single handily lost the eagles game. He’s a PI machine! DJAX will give him nightmares this week. As long as the coaches exploit that.

  23. DB55 Says:

    So much confidence and ego just 3 weeks ago, what happened?

  24. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Hey Supersam go look up Mariota’s record in close games in which he had a chance to win it vs Winston.

    Winston destroys him and it isn’t close at all

    Same point I brought up with them coming out – has played out so far in the NFL. Willing a team to win in the 4th quarter > box score stats.

  25. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    For those of you with no balls and no faith in Jameis.

    Through Peyton Mannings first 2 seasons, and the first 2 games of his 3rd season, He had thrown for 8,492 yards, 56 Td’s and 48 interceptions

    Same stats for Jameis in that span, 8,664 yards with 53 TD’s and 36 interceptions.

    Man, Sure seems to me like Jameis is on a better pace than one of the best to ever do it.

  26. Waterboy Says:

    They’re going to have to run to beat the Giants. The Giants spent a lot of money on that defense last year and are built to put pressure on QB’s and shutdown the pass. If Jameis is asked to pass 30-40 this week they’re going to have a field day on him in the pocket. Teams have been committing to the run against them to help slow down that pass rush.

  27. Joe Says:

    They’re going to have to run to beat the Giants.

    And there is your trap.

  28. Kobe Faker Says:

    effective running game with our offensive line?

    What did Kobe say about moving Marpet to center. Its a huge mistake removing the hawley/marpet combo from last year. Marpet had just 1 year to learn the pro game and now forcing him to learn the center position? Marpet is not a mentally confident person…just look at his goofy face. marpet is still thinking about his botched snaps 4 plays earlier

    Kobe predicts hawley/marpet combo comes back when sweezy back goes out any day from now

    “Free OJ Stocker”

    Kobe Faker

  29. Wausa Says:

    My concern is an over reaction by the Bucs coaches.

    The turnovers were mostly a result of the defense knowing we had no running game and we were down by multiple scores for most of the game.

    The Bucs have arguably the worst running backs in the NFL.
    Everyone knew this after last season but the Bucs decided the only thing to do was to draft a late round running back as a solution to the problem.

  30. ECREDIBLE22 Says:

    @DB55 I will always have confidence in the bucs we lost one game but if stats was to be trusted then WINSTON will be fine this game he always has a good game after a bad one

  31. LakeLandBuc Says:

    This reminds me of the Saints game in week 16 of last season. Jarius Byrd had one interception, during his 3 season with the Saints. Then he get 2 against Jameis Winston in week 16.

  32. BucTrooper Says:

    If only there was a stud running back available in the first round of the draft last year….

    Oh that’s right there was, but OJ Howard can block like the dickens, you betcha.

  33. ECREDIBLE22 Says:

    I would of took OJ Howard too with that pick there is no use of complaining about our picks last year what’s done is done hes not a BUC so chear for what we have I mean we lose 1 game and everybody is trying to explain why we should of drafted cook after the Vikings game I still would of drafted OJ that’s just my opinion

  34. Defense Rules Says:

    @Joe … “Of course, the Bucs have little option but for Jameis to throw early and often because the Bucs simply have no run game that would even frighten a five-year-old.” I’m seeing a LOT of disrespect in this article Joe, some from you (about the Bucs RBs) but much more from the 0-3 Giants’ secondary.

    For starters, if they were so good they wouldn’t be 0-3 against quite average teams. But more specifically, Giants are giving up OVER 150 yds per game rushing (average). Their opponents have run the ball 34 times a game average (none less than 31 times a game), which works out to 4.5 yds per carry average … tells me that the Giants run defense is pretty bad. And it’s actually one-quarter yd LESS than Peyton Barber’s average of 4.7 yds per rush in Game 1 (for whatever reason Koetter elected not to use him at all in Game 2). And the Bears (Game 1) have a MUCH better rushing defense than the Giants do (Bears gave up 251 yds rushing in 3 games vs Giants giving up 460 yds rushing thru 3 games).

    Giants also look to be VERY susceptible to the short passes (does anyone remember those from last year?). And especially to the short left & short right (they’re decent defending over the middle it looks like). No one has really challenged them deep, but Cowboys, Lions & Philly ate them alive with short passes. Can we maybe bring Chuck Sims out of retirement for this one? How about Barber? (he did catch 83% of everything thrown to him last year). Plus Jameis throws relatively few INTs throwing the short stuff (his deep passes are killers).

    The key to beating the Giants is not playing to their strengths (excellent secondary) and keeping their offense off the field. Their opponents through 3 games have averaged 35 mins time-of-possession. There’s no reason to lose in the NFL if you only allow your opponent to have the ball for 25 mins. It’s up to the offensive side of our team to start controlling the clock AND putting some points on the board.

  35. Joe Says:

    I’m seeing a LOT of disrespect in this article Joe

    As always, respect is earned. Hell, just about an hour ago, Koetter unloaded on his run game. You know, the coach?

    Bucs have the fifth-worst yards-per-carry in the league. “Disrespect?” Pppffftt!

  36. Defense Rules Says:

    Joe, would that be the same Dirk Koetter who sat his most productive runner in game 1 (based on yds per carry) on the bench in Game 2? The same Dirk Koetter who gave up on the run game after trying a TOTAL of 3 (yes 3) runs between the tackles in Game 2 for a total of 11 yds? The same Dirk Koetter who tried 3 (yes 3) edge runs in Game 2 for a total of 7 yds? The same Dirk Koetter who ran the ball a total of 6 (yes 6) times in Game 2 and gave up on the run WAY TOO EARLY? Dirk Koetter, HC, can unload on this RBs all he wants, but Dirk Koetter, OC, needs to start devising game-plans that use their skills most productively. If not, then this season really will go down the toilet.

  37. bucs_365 Says:

    No run game, interception prone QB, lack of pass rush, loose coverage… Looks like we’re not that good.

  38. lambchop Says:

    Can the Bucs give Peyton Barber more reps than Bowling Ball Rodgers? Barber looks like the type of back that will make people miss. He’s looked good so far given the little opportunity. This 3-headed monster is stupid because no back can get a rhythm. It’s gotta be a 2 back system with the 3rd only filling in on injuries and nothing else. Sims is the odd man out. Help Jameis out by limiting his pitch count.

  39. Nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    SMH…propaganda or is it just fake news…
    Heney Peney says the sky is falling….played 2 games out of 16…we still have a lot of time…unless you’re the opposition…then it is always bad and Jameis’s fault…

    Jamies is not the ONLY QB throwing interceptions, law of averages the more you have to pass the more chances for intetceptions.

    I warned about being a Bucs fan…just ask Doug Williams…


  40. Duke Says:


    4th were comebacks isn’t even close.
    JW has 3.
    MM in at 4.

    What are you thinking

  41. Duke Says:


    Comparing two QB’ s of different era’s (yes, PM’ s first two seasons are for comparison sake two different era’s) by total yds, total TD’ s and int’ s the numbers don’t compare equally. They need to be adjusted before a legitimate comparison can be done. As it stands the bulk totals comparison is just lazy and useless. Adj the numbers and you may have something, as of now there’s nothing to the comparison.
