  1. Pete I Says:

    That press conference did JW no favors

  2. Nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    You’re right, because I did not need to see nor hear about what he has been doing for 2 1/2 years and beyond…I ALREADY KNEW THIS!!!

  3. Pete I Says:

    That apology, if you want to call it that, is a cobbling together of tropes from other formulaic apologies. There is not an original word in there, and nothing in there suggests that he is an actual human being who understands that what he did was wrong, and why.

    Emotional JW? Looked more annoyed!

  4. Nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:


    I love myself some Jameis!

    He was accused…and The NFL made the determination…and I thought Jameis and Dirk…ssid that…they stand by the NFL ruling!

    NO SMOKING GUN…JAMEIS conduct was intoxication…wow!

    JW is going to be away from the team for the first 3 weeks. When He comes back , I believe it is a short week, He is going to be behind. If the first practice back He’s sharp and up to speed with his receivers He’ll probably play. If not the following week is when He gets the start. I think that the question should have been week 5 vs 4. Take away the biggest on the field variables first then let’s see how the team answers the question.

  6. Lamarcus Says:

    JW is speaking through someone…… ” Just keeping pointing what you did in the community and emphasize regret”

    He stays!!!! Probably a good thing

  7. Jim Says:

    Winston’s suspension during the Clemson game was not a half game but a full game suspension. You guys should know that. Read about it here:

    You’ll notice that Winston hasn’t changed a bit…

  8. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Ira, Joe and Joe…

    You are missing some important points in regard to Koetter naming Jameis the QB the starter in game 4:

    First, Jameis still has to meet the terms of his suspension, and hte NFL said if he didn’t, more games would be added. Koetter cannot name Jameis the starter until that is done.

    Second, in all the time Koetter has been here, have you EVER known him to address anything beyond the next regular season game? He just doesn’t do it. He;s a one game at a time kind of guy.

    No controversy at all.
