Good Jameis Returns

October 1st, 2017

Perhaps the greatest news from the Bucs jumping to a 2-1 record tonight was The Franchise playing like a true No. 1 overall pick and a smart and talented quarterback.

America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, protected the football and beat back the haters in a huge way in the thrilling 25-23 win against the Giants.

Three touchdowns, no interceptions, loads of good decisions — including a true throwaway under duress! — and command of the offense while spraying the ball around to lots of targets while averaging a whopping 15 yards per completion — Jameis had a heck of a day.

Yeah, the Giants defense isn’t collectively special this year, but they do have talent. But Jameis was simply better.

He’s certainly not perfect. There was one dumb throw that could have been picked by a defensive linemen, and he’s misfiring badly with DeSean Jackson, a malady Dirk Koetter said is on Jameis.

But the big picture was strong today, and Jameis put another fourth-quarter comeback on his resumé. And he found a way to start fast, with two first-quarter touchdowns on 5-of-6 throwing.

Good Jameis is back!

    D-jax is putting too much pressure on Jameis to get him the ball.

  2. Wesley Says:

    Joe, did Godwin play today?

  3. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    Jameis took responsibility for the DJax struggles as well.

  4. NewTampaChris Says:

    Disagree. Jameis badly outplayed for the second straight week. Should have been way further ahead by the second quarter.

  5. AlteredEgo Says:

    Jameis has the touch of Slingblade making a move on Rachael Watson….

  6. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    Godwin played a lot.

  7. BigPoppaBuc Says:

    He had a few dropped passes as well. Jackson and Jameis need to throw about 100 balls this week. Winston was fantastic today made some great plays on the move today. He carried this team today and that’s exactly what we needed him to do. Great win for Jameis and our BUCS!

  8. Wausa Says:

    Jameis played very well

    Coach Koetter didn’t have his best day and his kicker was awful but thankfully he has a QB on the verge of being great.

  9. Rod Munch Says:

    LOL! Those trashing Jameis should do us all a favor and take a collective leap into a garbage disposal.

  10. JameisDungy Says:

    Jameis and Djax’s bad chemistry.
    Dirk meh play calling.

    Still 2-1.

    This was a very good Giants pass defense. The game would have been over earlier if we ran the ball more and threw out of play action.

    Maybe Dirk knows Jameis is going to need the reps to get prepared for Brady. Because Jameis is going to have to be better to win this Thursday. However, can we please get the Dirk from 2015 calling plays?

  11. Cometowin2 Says:

    Good problem to have. Too many people to get the ball to. Not going to hear a peep out of Godwin. One day he’ll be taking over for DeSean. I get that DeSean is trying to cement his legacy in the game but needs to be staying late practicing with Jameis instead of complaining. Follow the example from Brate and stay late at practice. The chemistry iwith Jackson in their first season is not as sharp as with Evans, Hump and Brate. When you win probably better to be quiet.

    Jameis completed 72% of his passes today with 113 qb rtg. He is completing 67% of his passes for the season. I believe that is called improvement. He also has 7 tds to 3 ints. He is on pace for over 35 tds. Stop hating and enjoy the ride.

  13. SOEbuc Says:

    When Janoris Jenkins was all over Mike Evans and could’ve had a very easy pick six. That was a pretty stupid throw also. But it wasn’t. Woo-hoo no Jameis picks!!! GO BUCS!!!

  14. SteelStudBuc Says:

    Jameis Winston is like a box of chocolates… 😁

  15. LakeLand Says:

    For now, how long will it last?

  16. webster Says:

    Some of you guys are real football idiots.

  17. NFLNut Says:

    Poor word choice for the title of this article … Jameis completed 70% last week with no running game behind him … this week I understand he put up the best passer rating of any QB since 2015 against the Giants!

    Jameis is always “good” … today he was “great”

  18. Nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    So what happened to all the trash the Giants were talking about how they were going to bait Jameis and force him to make interceptions!

    ANYONE….crickets…Just what I thought from the naysayers on here…smh

  19. JP4 Says:

    JW was ‘not bad’ in this game. We’ll see what happens Thursday against one of the weaker defenses in the NFL.

    I love the initial comment on this page – ‘D-jax is putting too much pressure on Jameis to get him the ball’ – sounds like Jameis Winston’s mommy!

  20. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Was a great rebound after last week. He stayed poised and came through. Congrats, Winston. He still needs to work on putting his receivers in positions where they can get YAC. It seems as if there are defenders on them instantly.

  21. Ndog Says:

    Now that was the Jameis I was begging us to draft. Now do it again Thursday.

  22. Nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    I thought I heard somewhere DJack was adjusting his game some to accomodate Jameis. So perhaps to keep from putting Jameis in a situation in traffic where he could get picked there is a sweet spot trailing him…that they are working on…

    If Jameis can hit, Cam, Mike and Hump…who were there during his rookie year, given time and adjusting they will be phenomenal like he and RaShad was…DJ is faster.

    And even when he and DJack start clicking, there will still be some posters he will never accept even the NFL ELITES they compare him with are not perfect, they under and over throw, they have tips and interceptions and their receivers have to make adjustments, too🏃‍♂️GO BUCS☠

  23. Eric Says:

    To think we could have kept Glennon instead…..

  24. Teddy Says:

    ^^^Is that supposed to be a joke??

  25. Bucamania Says:

    Jameis was the man yesterday. Lots of points left on the field too due to Nick Folk and some questionable goal line playcalling. Some bad drops too (Evans!). JW came through when he needed to. More OJ please!!

  26. Bucsince1976 Says:

    The criticism of Jameis says more about the critics than it does Jameis….

    People need to be less myopic about JW5. Watch how many bad throws other QBs get away with too. Go watch a Steelers game. Or a Chargers game.

    Jameis is the best QB we’ve ever had here. Get off his case.

  27. Big Stinky Says:

    That game could have went either way, a win or a loss. Jameis was good at the beginning and end of the game but was inconsistent for quite a bit of it. He is STILL not very accurate (at times) which is going to end up with INT’s most games. Have to give him credit for NOT tanking though. I wish he would play like that EVERY week. We are going to need MORE than 25 points against the Patriots, just look at the Carolina game this week. The Panthers’ defense plays better than the Bucs’ and Brady still scored 30 points, right? There are too many drives ending in FG’s and that will come back to bite us sooner or later. Glad Jameis was more accurate on that last drive, hope he can duplicate that Thursday night. Don’t expect Brady to lose 2 in a row but hope we can do it. Keep it up Jameis, good job. Playoffs or Bust! Go BUCS!

  28. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Webster, I agree Jameis looked great yesterday and put this team on his back. Your statistics however are WAY off! 22 of 38 is 57%. You lose credibility with these haters when you inflate his numbers like that.

  29. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    And he is 63% for the season. Where in the world did you find those inflated numbers? Did you just make them up?

  30. Big Stinky Says:

    Winston ONLY has 6 TD’s too (not 7)
