So, About That Shoulder, Jameis

December 19th, 2017

Shoulder seemed fine last night. (Photo courtesy of

We all know that America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, has largely played games with a bum shoulder this season.

So last night, when asked if his shoulder was OK or if it was healed, Jameis gave a curious answer that was neither a yes or a no.

“I’m just prepared to play, that’s all I can say,” Jameis said. “I’m prepared to play.”

That is hardly a denial, and it is no confirmation he’s healed.

The way Jameis threw the ball last night, though, it’s hard to figure out how that shoulder can be injured still.

    JW looked exactly like a franchise QB. Get this guy a line and good coaching STAT!

    ESPN went into depth on this issue, showing Jameis’ throws before and after the injury…..

    What a super game to watch last night, it was a thrill, kudos to all the subs who stepped up…..didn’t think they’d have enough players to finish the game….

    Jameis was focused! That’s what we need everyday!!!! 😀

    @TomE nailed it. So many hurt Bucs the team injury table got hot racked! I would label this game ‘True Grit’. Rooster Cogburn would be proud. I know I am. GO BUCS!!

    Great game Last night. No cigar for our Bucs. Jameis showed why he was drafted no 1. Again, your Defense has to close games. And with no rushers you cannot do it. The announcers kept alluding to..there is no rush by the Bucs. Mattie Ice was off but it made no difference as he completed passes when he needed to complemented by a strong running game. Go right ahead Tampa Bay..Keep stocking your offense in the draft and You will…..Keep Losing!

    Undermanned and still gave it all they had. Great game last night only bolsters my hope for this team. Go Bucs!

    Jamies is Tampa’s Russell Wilson. Screw Gruden!!!

  8. AlteredEgo Says:

    It was Jameis’s timing and footwork that made his shoulder look good….just as his timing and footwork has made him look erratic in his past games…his throwing mechanics were excellent last night

    Last night Jameis looked like NFL Jameis and not the Middle School Playground Jameis that we have seen way too much of.
    He was going to his checkdown receivers, dumping the ball off and throwing lots of short passes, only going down the field a few times. He was actually more of a game manager last night and looked much better. The Falcons have no pass rush to push him into his bad decisions and bonehead plays, but at least for last night he looked like a future franchise QB. Well Done

    Winston played a great game….simple as that!!….GO BUCS!!!!

    Crazed? Or Crazy? Jameis did have a great game and showed the first pick in the draft potential that justifies his pick position. And his is 23 with a potentially great career in front of him…who knows how great he can be but the spark seems to be there.

    If this pick helps anyone in addition to Jameis, it is Jason Licht. He showed why he deserved to be the first pick. And when Jameis plays like this most games, it will show that he has arrived. But it also makes you think that Koetter isn’t the guy that will help him take that step.

    Jameis needs to stop putting so much faith in his O-line starters. Last night he knew the O-line was depleted so he played differently. He was focused, mobile, and accurate, not trying to stand in the pocket but making plays with his legs. This is when Jameis is at his best. When the starters are in he has to much trust in them and tries to stay in the pocket. He needs to think of starting O-line like they are backups and play like he did last night.

  13. Eric Says:

    We have the franchise QB.

    Do we have the coach who can get the most out
    of him and win championships?

    Not get to 8-8 or 9-7 and have a ticker tape parade. Can Dirk coach through a play-off run and win it all? Or even a Division Title?

    scant evidence he can. Third year running our offense and just don’t see it.

    “…..didn’t think they’d have enough players to finish the game….”

    I was starting to think the same thing…and then I wondered…what would be the policy if they didn’t have enough players? Would they have forfeited?

  15. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I don’t know if anyone noticed, but Jameis DID make a bonehead throw last night. He was going down and threw it to the right, about 15-20 yards out. IT was a horrible decision, and he got lucky that no one picked it off.

    But that was mostly his only mistake.

    Was great seeing Mike Evans and him connecting again. Proof once again that all the pressure to connect with DJax was at the root of the Jameis issues.

  16. Bucsfanman Says:

    Agreed Bonzai! I liked seeing Evans part of the game more.

  17. Bucco Says:

    Jameis had a one on one with Gruden before the game. Just imagine what he could do with him for a whole season.
