Plenty Of Third-Team Reps For Jameis

July 26th, 2018

Welcome to Day 1 of training camp with the No. 1 quarterback suspended for the first three games.

There was a Jameis Winston throwing deep balls to the likes of Ervin Phillips, the undrafted rookie wide receiver out of Syracuse and rookie TE Tanner Hudson out of Southern Arkansas. It was rarely pretty. One pass even hit Phillips in the helmet. But hey, America’s Quarterback, sure makes third-team work a lot more interesting.

Jameis was keeping his first-team intensity as the Bucs worked inside the indoor facility (lightning outside), often redirecting receivers pre-snap on multiple occasions.

When Dirk Koetter spoke to media after the game, it was clear that priority No. 1 is getting Ryan Fitzpatrick and his backup, Ryan Griffin, ready for opening day. Koetter noted that Griffin is one snap/injury away from being the top dog in New Orleans.

Jameis will get his share of first-, second- and third-team work through training camp, Koetter said. And Jameis did work a bit with the 1s today.

    Joe, what are the odds the Bucs trade for a mid tier qb before week one @New Orleans?

    Virtually none.

    The “real” fans wonder if Jw3 camp will “anonymously” leak that there is a rift between Head Coach Koetter and Jw3, again!!!!

    Teddy Bridgewater is on the trading block.

    Let’s root for who we have playing in the actual games. The cards will play out from a positional perspective after the first three games. Go Bucs.

    I agree with Godeep66,

    Rooting for Fitz while he is numero uno.

    sounds like jameis is getting a better touch on deep balls he actually hitting someone, literally. albeit in the head.

  10. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Hitting them in the head means the throws were very catchable.

  11. Defense Rules Says:

    Koetter is doing exactly what he should be doing … get the TEAM ready for opening day.

    when you lose, theres a rift between everyone!!!!!!!

    GREAT!! Give’em 3rd team reps. He’s earned them! Maybe..Just maybe all of this will give Jameis incentive to..Ball out like the No 1 choice in the draft we thought he would be. WIN Jameis when you get back in there and Most..will be forgiven.

  14. Bucamania Says:

    Fitz will go 2-1. Bringing the FitzMagic back!

    He threw a pick on what was a horrible throw and threw late on several passes; same as it ever was.

    ^^^Un not if the WR isn’t expecting it, so in other words JW timing is off, BADLY, which is par for the course.

  17. Dapostman Says:


    Shouldn’t a WR expect a pass if you are out in a pass pattern? Man you JW haters will come up with something all the time. The pass hits the WR in the head and he’s not expecting it. Blame Jameis. You guys are hilarious.
