“The Way He Attacks In The Film Room”

March 11th, 2018

Returning Bucs backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick dropped a little insider peek into One Buc Palace last week.

And it was uplifting.

Talking to Buccaneers.com in a video chat with Casey Phillips, Fitzpatrick strong feelings about his Tampa experience and feelings.

“I think there’s some unfinished business just in terms of the talent on this team and where we can go from here. I thought it was great working with Jameis and just seeing him, you know, physically, but you know mentally, the way that he attacks in the film room, it was really exciting to see. So for us to further that bond and to continue to see him improve as a player is going to be great,” Fitzpatrick said.

Fitzpatrick went on to say “the love was both ways” when it came to the respect and appreciation shown him by Jason Licht and Dirk Koetter.

Yes, Year 2 of Fitz is a good thing, especially if Jameis Winston is going to booted from One Buc Palace for several weeks because of an NFL suspension stemming from his Uber hassle.

    This is a good thing. Now I wonder what is going to play out the next 8 weeks. I hesitantly re-opted my season tix cause I’m an old Bucs Grognard and hope it twas not in vain. They got the cash……..

    So what I want to know is when JW is “attacking “ in the film room and he sees a play of himself losing the ball (for no good reason) what is his reaction to that?

  4. Teacherman777 Says:

    Fitzpatrick is a badass!

    He is tough as hell. Remember those hits he took running?

    Fitzpatrick sacrificed his body in battle last year. I love him.

    He is also teaching Jameis to calm down. Fitz is great role model for Jameis.

    Can Fitz rush the passer?

  6. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Mike Johnson….. BOOM

  7. Pickgrin Says:

    I’m glad Fitz is back.

    Joe – do you really think Winston is going to be suspended this year??

    If so – why? On what basis?

    Do you need reminding that there was no formal complaint – no LEO involvement – no charges and none coming – no evidence whatsoever on the accuser’s part – and at least 1 direct witness who corroborated Winston’s version that he didn’t grope her and in fact couldn’t have from the back seat.

    How in the hell does that equal a suspension?

    And if you don’t really think Jameis will be suspended Joes – then why the hell do you keep writing about it as if you expect that to happen?

    Please enlighten me.

    IMO Joe – you are doing more harm than good for Winston’s situation by continually writing about it like you expect a suspension.

    I think basically Joe – I’m saying CUT IT OUT unless you can share some logical take as to why and for what reason Winston would actual be suspended.

    No formal complaint – no LEO involvement – no charges and NO EVIDENCE leads to only one place – NO SUSPENSION.

    Just sayin…

  8. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    NO LEO involvement means no suspension? have you not followed goodell and nfl past 5 years? there was a dallas RB last year!?

  9. Ndog Says:

    So Dooshlarue, getting blasted from behind is no good reason, while looking downfield to do his job? Do you even watch the games our are you just a stat boy. Your name suits your commen’ts BTW.

  10. Pickgrin Says:

    Dusthty – No EVIDENCE means no suspension.

    Elliott clearly groped that woman and acted inappropriately on the balcony – video evidence left no question which is all King Goodell needed to see in that particular case.

  11. BrianBucs Says:

    Jameis keeps fumbling the remote

  12. Dooshlarue Says:

    Yeah I watch the games and I’m not anti-Winston, but I’ve seen him just lose the ball…. like it just magically slips out of his hand and it drives me crazy.
    If it was his 1st or 2nd season I would (and did) understand.
    But last year he fumbled way more than before.
    He needs to fix that immediately and stop saying “I need to do a better job” ….. that line is getting old.

  13. AlteredEgo Says:

    Father time wins in the end….I’m OK in the VERY short term…but we need a MUCH better #2 QB….this is really going off into the NFL weeds…but I think the NFL in the interest of quality QB play in the event of the startewr going down and out…….Not count the #3 QB as part of the 53 man roster….meaning 54 players on active rosters

  14. I Bleed Pewter and Red Says:

    Talking about Winston fumbling woes? I’m 5’10 and my hands are larger than Jameis’s and I struggle at times gripping the ball.

    Winston hand size

    As Hall of Fame executive Bill Polian said on ESPN, the size of Jameis’ hands as well as his weight are issues for teams. “The size of Jameis’ hands are a little bit of a concern,” Polian said on ESPN Thursday. Winston’s hand size is 9 3/8 inches, which is “not great, below the norm,” in Polian’s view.

  15. TOM Says:

    I believe this is a prove it year for JW

  16. BucEmUp Says:

    This offense is good enough to win games. I wish the main focus on this team was to fix the defense. That’s the only thing keeping this team from winning games period

  17. Mike30#1bucfan Says:

    Pickgrin great insight, and yes the Joe’s seem to like carrying on unnecessary write ups to have that I told you moment!

  18. Mike Johson Says:

    If you really watched the games last season..there were 6 easily winnable ones right there in our hands. The offense scored enough points. But we did not have the tools to stop the Defensive leaks. There were games where we only needed ONE…1..stop. But the Defense opened up like honey and the opposition walked right thru. convert Fitz to a defensive lineman…Anything!

  19. loggedontosay Says:

    When you start quoting Bill Polian your credibility is shot to hell.

  20. darin Says:

    He was 2-1 as a starter last year buddy. It’s even more impressive being 2-1 as a starter on a team that has a mike smith run defense. We’ve got much bigger worries than the backup qb who went 2-1 last year. A new coaching staff would have been the quickest fix. Instead now we need 2DEs a DT 2 RBs 2 Olinemen then some DBs.

  21. AlteredEgo Says:

    Darin 2 &1 was last year… a year younger for an already old NFL player and the # 3 gimp boy that no one knows his name, I’m just not real comfortable with the backup position

  22. old time buc Says:

    Altered, I’m a lot more comf w the Qb situation than the def line situation. We need to get big guys on the line or continue to lose games as Mike Johnson clearly stated.

  23. AlteredEgo Says:

    Old….oh yeah there are many other concerns….DL & DB but back up QB is shakey too

  24. Greecosuave Says:

    People are worried about an occasional fumble by JW. We have no pass rush, half an O-line, No starting RBs, a third of the secondary, a lame duck GM & coach, no real FA pull, pissed off fabs, the toughest Div, I mean do you get the point.

    Maybe we had a chance to win if there was no fumble by JW. At this point 2 more wins would have just pissed everybody off.

    I’m glad Fitzmaguc is back. He’s a good guy that is fine in his roll. Let’s expect the QB play to play build after last seasons play got much better.

    Nice broscience theory bro. Guess Belichick should’ve known better than to draft qb busts like Tom Brady and Jimmy G
