“I Don’t Think That Is A Lesson He Learns In One Week.”

October 1st, 2017

Mike Florio explains.

It seems the creator, curator and overall guru of ProFootballTalk.com, the great Mike Florio, has bad vibes about the Bucs’ chances today just like Joe.

It seems Florio likes America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston. However, like Joe, it seems Florio isn’t ready to rely on a game being won when put on Jameis’ shoulders, which is why on his Friday episode of “PFT Live,” Florio said he believes the Giants will win.

In short, Florio, Joe believes, has the most perfect, succinct description of Jameis at this point in his young career Joe has ever read or heard.

“Those boneheaded plays from Jameis Winston last weekend, they all flow from moments where his desire overcomes his ability and he forces it,” Florio said. “He makes bad decisions, wants to will his team to victory. He has to learn how to stay within himself. And I don’t think that is a lesson he learns in one week.”


Jameis has such a passionate desire to win, he tries to will the offense in critical moments down the field and into the end zone. And that is the trap: His heart is in the right place, not his head.

    Jameis is 5-2 in games after weeks where he threw multiple picks. The Bucs win today if they can rush for at least 120 yards.

  2. Bird Says:

    It’s year 3

  3. Dewey Selmon Says:

    It’s not one week. It is going on 3 years. 5 if you include FSU.

  4. Zwak Says:

    Bird has a good point!

  5. JonBuc Says:

    Winston will understandably tire of having no real rb threat and force a pick or two to L. Collins…hopefully Bustin’ Evans will get some valuable mop-up duty at safety once Geno Smith enters the game in a similar capacity.

  6. tmaxcon Says:

    I’ll take my chances with Jameis and his desire to win over gmc passion to lose everyday and twice on Sunday. At least you have a chance when your players have a passion to win versus gmc and other holdovers video documented passionate celebrations after losses.

  7. tmaxcon Says:

    There would be a lot less pressure in Jameis to force things and carry team if he had some help on defense from the soft often injured defensive captains who have to rely on Kwon for passion, energy and mental toughness to be successful

    No doubt Isbits wrote this article

  9. Lord Corn Says:

    The only bad decision was probably the forced throw to Mike Evans and that still hit him in the hands. The first interception was the right decision just a bad throw. 2nd one djax fell otherwise it’s likely completed

    Lazy take by Florio

    The Bucs win today if they can rush for at least 120 yards.

    I think DK does a version of punishment for last week’s horrible decisions and a measure of protection by severely limiting #3. I don’t think he has a choice!!!

    At this point it’s time to think about winning games not any players feelings or thoughts. We need to bring #3 along slowly. I think after last week Koetter keeps #3 on a very short leash.

  12. tmaxcon Says:

    Gmc led soft defense lost that game last week not Jameis let’s not rewrite history to cover up the fact NO KWON = NO DEFENSIVE HEART

  13. BucFamous Says:


    5 years??

    You either didn’t watch his first year at FSU or you’re just a troll. You could point to his second year starting at FSU (y’know the one where he only lost one game), but to pretend his freshman year was mistake filled is revisionist history.

  14. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    We are going to pound the rock today. DK always emphasizes the run after multiple pick games. I hope it works.🤞🏻

  15. Please Says:

    Pretty sure the d held when they needed to, to keep the game in hand and offense rolled over. This O has been massively disappointing these first 2 games.

  16. Aaron Says:

    I just don’t see why all of the criticism of JW for this game. Zero running game, bad snaps, and the D couldnt get off the field.

    Interceptions reviewed

    1) Under thrown deep ball (on JW – not forced)

    2) Ball thrown over the LBs and in front of the Safety…Jackson didn’t get to the spot..tight window but down 14 in the 4th Q. Good throw IMO for the game script..no threat of running at this point so no play action. Plus, would the D stop the Vikings anyway.

    3) Down 17 points with less then 6 min to play. The ball hit Evans in the hands – could have been a high hit to a defenseless receiver. We’ve been called for less. Forced but the ball hit Evans in the hands – hard hit but he gets paid to make those catches.

    I get more frustrated with our game plans. No creativity at all on offense. I’ve seen the Pats know they are out manned in the running game so they run Wr screens over and over to make up for it.

    I’ve seen Denver (with Manning) know their D was vulnerable. So they ran a dink and dunk offense and ran clock to protect their D.

    Extreme examples but at least you can see some game planning and thought.

    Go Bucs! We need a some how some way win today.

  17. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Bucfamous. i will give you his freshman year. what about the last 4 years then. feel better?

  18. gotbbucs Says:

    Looking more and more like Josh Freeman 2.0 lately.

  19. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    Awaiting moderation blues continue.

  20. Jim Says:

    Winston is the solution, not the problem.

  21. Gencoimports Says:

    The Giants are ranked dead last in rushing defense. If the Bucs can’t at least duplicate what they did vs. the Bears on the ground (117 yards) then they deserve to lose today

  22. Broy34 Says:

    Tmax you’re the dumbest human I’ve ever met. McCoy was in the backfield all game and keenum got rid of the ball immediately.i once again feel sorry for you

  23. SpaceCoastJustin Says:

    If I recall in his rookie year (or maybe last year)
    Jamis had several high turnover games… Then he just stopped turning it over.. so I think he can do it when he focuses on protecting the ball.

  24. tmaxcon Says:


    LOL you are clueless and watched a completely different game than was actually played. Your live of mediocrity is sad

  25. LakeLandBuc Says:

    36 Picks in 34 games is not that good, it’s horrible.

  26. unbelievable Says:

    Tmax must think every other person on the planet watches a different game than him every week. But he’s the one who is right. Obviously 😂😂

  27. celly Says:

    I still don’t understand how everyone in the NFL, all former players as well as current and former coaches can see that GMC is one of the best 3-tech DT in the league, but tmax goes against that.

    Are you a scout, coach or GM?

  28. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Florio nailed it.

    Here’s how we know Winston will become elite at some point…bad quarterbacks throw picks because they are horrible at reading defenses AND making decisions.

    Winston does it because he knows the risks, but is trying to force it anyway. Its a maturity issue, and that’s all it is. Jameis will mature past such bonehead moves as time passes.

    Watching the Steelers play right now, and I swear, watching Ben play is like watching what a very mature Winston would be like. The throws are almost exactly the same…throwing high so the WRs have to jump for them.

  29. Mike Says:

    Those picks were not some extraordinary feat of willing to win, they were plain stupid garbage picks

  30. Andrew Says:

    What now, Mike? Any thoughts? Didn’t think so. GO BUCS!!!!
