“He’s Like A Guy Out Of A Movie”

September 18th, 2017

Talkin’ Jameis.

Interesting words from Bucs receiver Mike Evans.

Yesterday after the game, Evans appeared with Deion Sanders on NFL Network, via Skype, to chat about the Bucs’ beatdown of the declawed Bears.

At one point during the interview, America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, did a quick appearance to say hi to his fellow Nole, Sanders. When Jameis left, Deion started asking Evans about Jameis and Evans had something interesting to say.

Deion asked Evans about Jameis’ leadership skills.

“Great player, great person,” Evans said. “I’ve never — he’s like a guy out of a movie, you know, when it comes to being a leader. I feel like he must watch a lot of movies or a lot of speeches. He’s really good at them and he gets the guys riled up. We love playing with him.”

Sure, you’ve heard that the Bucs were Jameis’ team the moment he walked through the front door of One Buc Palace the morning after he was drafted. From the stories Joe has heard from suits all the way down to practice squad players, that’s not just rhetoric, either.

    Jameis has won the hearts and minds…..charismatic leader and performer

    I agree Tom Edrington. The Bucs starting qb is definitely that special, unique leader that one rarely finds. The guy thrives on competition, never quits and sparks his team mates. Nothing against that Mariota kid but Tampa definitely picked a “one in a decade” type of person.

  4. Sun Says:

    Mike Evans is a beast —and the ONLY top 10 player in the nfl so why not more abt him?. Maybe less on Winston until he stops with the overthrows or is rated higher.

  5. JameisDungy Says:

    Love Jameis.

    But he’s gotta start hitting these deep throws. He’s got to audible out of some of these mediocre play calls from Dirk.

    Also its time Dirk or Jameis play with some tempo. Offense looked much better on the final drive to end the 1st half. Stop playing so slow.

  6. shouldhavedraftedeifert Says:

    @JameisDungy YEP. I’m still down on JW. He’s no better than Josh Freeman at this point. He’s still got a few more levels to go before we can say he’s arrived. You can see he has gotten better though absolutely. Took some sacks yesterday that he should have and those feet were a little less danc-y when he found some protection so there is progress.

    Those high throws and missed open receivers are becoming a problem that he’s must correct or by game 3 DJAX is going to start getting grumpy.

  7. Locked In Says:

    Jameis will settle down and start connecting those long balls as the season progresses. No ones ever been able to overthrow DJax before! lol

  8. Nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    Playing a position that takes percision with no iron sharpening after over 22 days…

    From your couch you should be able to play with lights out! But in reality with no fantasy, we WON…inspite of the previous adversities…

    Go Bucs☠

    Can some of the rational posters here tell me if “some” posters are that stooopid or do they just have something personal against #3.

    Josh Freeman? What an idiot to post like that!!! Josh Freeman was 6-6 240 lbs and when they let him run he was OK. He had a cannon for an arm without ANY accuracy!!! He would miss simple swing passes out to the flat for RB’s. He was horrible as a passer. He topped 60% twice in his five years with a whopping 62.5%…two other years he passed for 54%..and 45% his last year. He barely topped 4,000 yards ONE of his five years…#3 has done it his first two years. Josh Freeman had two “good” years out of his five with the Bucs…wow that sounds familiar doesn’t it…LOL…I think Doug bounces back though…JFRO NEVER bounced back!!! Comparing #3 to JFRO is just moronic. #3 is 2 for 2 in getting over 4,000 yards…JFRO…1 for 5…and again…outside of two years…JFRO SUCCCKKKKEDD!!! He couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn!

    I honestly do not get some of the idiocy here. Given Google can set you free with facts I can only assume these people are truly…as in literally haters because their posts couldn’t be more incorrect or ignorant.

    So the question is guys…are these guys really uninformed morons…or is it personal? Or perhaps they’re just trolling us because they are attention whres.

  10. Wausa Says:

    It really is incredible that people will post idiotic posts regarding Jameis.

    The guy is one year older than Deshaun Watson but has already thrown for over 8,000 yards, is the leader of the franchise, is a winner and is the arguably the best young QB in the NFL.

  11. orlbucfan Says:

    If the three parts of this team mature as their potential indicates, the Bucs will be nightmares to play against. Example: DK had Sims and DeSean J lined up in the BACKFIELD behind Fameis. That means throwing the ball out of the backfield like they’re both RBs. The execution was sloppy so they called a timeout before the play started. The Bucs O now has the players to pull off this stuff. DK needs to practice the heck outta this call so the players are familiar with it. It will be a defensive coach’s worse nightmare. They can’t game plan against it cos the Bucs have other O weapons out there, too. Infriggincredible! I’ve never seen an offense like this one and I’ve been a diehard fan since 1979!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t believe I’m writing this but it’s the truth! Go Mighty Bucs!!!!

  12. Broy34 Says:

    No better than freeman lmfaoooooo omg. Officially done with the comment section once again. Why do I keep coming back to the comment sections. I Do enjoy the sensible ones(NosBos) but my god. No better than freeman. He just surpassed the franchise record for most td’s in a 3 year start by a buc which was freeman. Winston did it in 15 less games. Omfg

  13. Pickgrin Says:

    It was the intangibles that made Winston a clear slam dunk pick over Mariota.

    The Fire – the leadership – the “IT” factor – the clutch late game performances that always led to WINS.

    Jameis Winston was BORN to play Quarterback and he’ll wind up being among the best to ever play the game when its all said and done.

    I said that the 1st time I ever saw Winston play and nothing since has altered that expectation.

    Is Jameis a finished product? Not even close. In fact – he’s just getting started. Yet look what he has already accomplished at football’s highest level at the ripe old age of 23…

    Enjoy the ride for the next 12-15 years Bucs fans. Its gonna be a doozie!

  14. Eric Says:

    So many trashed the kid. BSPN tried to take him out. NYT’s too. Witch hunt.

    Admitting you were dead wrong is sometimes tough.

    A Josh Freeman comparison?

    That kind of stupidity speaks for itself.

  15. ECREDIBLE22 Says:

    Hey guys and gals new to this but I had to post why would anybody compare josh freeman to WINSTON that is really a hater talking has to be in my opinion

  16. uckinator Says:

    A lot of the elation today comes from the 4 turnovers recovered in the 1st half. You’ll win a lot of games that way. but….Was it that, we played great or da pathetic Bears bumbled & fumbled the game away ?

  17. Buc1987 Says:

    stpetebucsfan…lol tell us how you really feel?

    I ran into a Bucs fan over the summer. About a 20 yr old kid. After seeing his hat and shirt I said are you excited for the season, Jameis has all these weapons now. His answer : “I’m a Bucs fan, but I hate Jameis Winston.”

    That’s no lie. True story. I didn’t question him more about why, because I couldn’t figure out why. Just saw the serious look on his face and figured why bother, he may just need to see more. Now that was pre-Hard Knocks.

  18. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Holy sh1t there are either some of the dumbest fans ever posting here; or just some of the biggest saddest haters out there.

    Joe – if you could make it possible to block seeing certain people’s comments this site would be gold.

  19. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Freeman didn’t have Dirk Koetter or Mike Evans or might have actually had a career as an NFL QB. He also lacked the maturity and leadership skills, as well as the work ethic and dedication that Jameis Winston possesses in spades. Jameis is a starter. Freeman should never have been.

  20. richardtyson Says:

    What kind of a fool uses the name shouldhavedraftedeifert?

  21. 813bucboi Says:

    @87….crazy aint it!!!…I had a lady tell me she hated Winston because of his incident at FSU while wearing a ben rothlisburger at buffalo wild wings….

    she went on and on about how the school should’ve kicked him out….how the nfl should’ve suspended him….how he should’ve been arrested…and how the “victim” should be paid millions….

    I asked her if she knew about big ben’s run ins with the law and she said yeah…but but but….I couldn’t do any but laugh and shake my head….GO BUCS!!!!

  22. ManzielMadness Says:

    Am I the only one that noticed all the holding penalties on a lot of Jameis’ deep throws because the bears corners couldn’t keep up with all of our weapons? It’s hard to hit a deep throw when DJax was getting held instead being able to actually run down the field. It’s the effect were gonna have on defenses, a lot of them cant keep up with all of our weapons so expect a lot of holdings, pass interferences, etc.

  23. cmurda Says:

    I saw the missed connections on the deep throws differently. On about half of those missed connections, I faulted the receivers. On one, D Jax spun himself around and missed the timing. The throw was on. The long wheel route to Sims should have connected. Sims slowed down and then try to speed back up to catch up to it. The other half of the throws were simply overthrown. JW does need to improve on the deep throws but I’m very confident he will be hitting on those passes as he gets more comfortable with D Jax.

  24. cmurda Says:

    @813. It’s sad isn’t it? If you want to believe that Ben is innocent or it was blown out of proportion, fine, but please don’t tell me that JW’s incidents were serious. Nothing about the rape allegation against him holds any credibility. I would love to believe that racism isn’t as bad as the media portrays it and I do believe that, but yes, it is still very much alive.

    What? Evans is the only top 10 player in the NFL? You make no sense.

    Winston is the QB and leader of the team, that’s why he gets the press and coverage. Rated higher by who? You? That’s reliable, according to you there’s a top 10 list of players in the NFL and the only one is Mike Evans.

  26. Greg Says:

    Multiple times I’ve seen Jameis walking out of the locker room after a game, and he may not have a smile on his face as he’s walking up to you, but as soon as you say something to him, you get that smile and he’ll say something back to you and fist bump you. He’s just one of those people no matter who he comes in contact with, he puts you at ease. Haters can hate, but this guy is authentic, you don’t get many opportunities in life to meet people who have his leadership qualities, so enjoy it while we can!

  27. DB55 Says:

    The best part of the interview was when Mike said to Jameis “I thought you were the best Nole ever? You the undefeated Heisman winning national champ”. In other words Prime ain’t got nothing on you.

    Boy say what?! Powerful stuff right there. JW> Primetime. Only Charlie Ward could enter in that conversation maybe Derrick Brooks. But man JW the greatest that’s saying a lot.

  28. Pickgrin Says:

    DB – I sure wish we could have seen Charlie Ward play at the NFL level. He was such an amazing QB at FSU. I’ve always been curious how about good he could have been in the NFL – but we will never know.

  29. Pickgrin Says:

    “about how good” – where’s the damn edit button Joe.

  30. notabucsfan Says:

    Josh Freeman? Really?? The bucs continue to have the most idiotic fans in the world. I’ll tell you what I can’t wait to see from JW and that is the end of his rookie contract with the bucs. He can then go to a real NFL team with fans that know the game. He will go on to win a few Super Bowls, waltz in to the Hall of Fame, and the bucs can go back to being the laughingstock of the NFL where they, and their fans belong. Just a couple of more seasons before the yuks return.

  31. DB55 Says:

    Gotta give Charlie poops for going to the NBA. CTE is real.

  32. SeriouslyStop Says:

    There are 32 head coaches in the NFL and I’d bet serious money that none of them are on this message board. So all you Monday morning quarterbacks are just wasting your keystrokes telling us what you would have done differently if you controlled the team.
    You don’t.
    You won’t.
    So shut the hell up!!
    These are the players that the coaches have decided on, and you input means NOTHING. Accept that fact and move on. Watch what they do and enjoy it like the rest of the fans.

  33. 813bucboi Says:

    @cmurda….it was sad….she was talking as if she was there when everything happen with Winston….she tried to drag his name thru the mud but I wasn’t havin it….I started going over what big ben was involved in and she was looking at me as if she knew I was lying…..you already know what race she was….but it is what it is….I luv my QB…LOL…GO BUCS!!!!

  34. Preds'n'Bucs Says:

    One of those deep throws Winston “missed” literally fell through DJax’s outstretched hands. Would have been another 6. They’ll get those down the line and the offense will really be dangerous.

  35. Howard Cosell Says:

    Greg: Great summary.

    … Jameis Wisdom

  36. Howard Cosell Says:

    I think most of the trolls, like the eifert/freeman guy above
    aren’t even serious.
    They’re just trying to stir up a conversation or get a reaction.
    I honestly don’t think there’s a single real person in Tampa that hasn’t
    been won over yet.
