DJax Grouses On Social Media

November 26th, 2018

Not happy with win.

This was too predictable.

It seemed like such nice day.

Mike Evans played well. Adam Humphries played well. Chris Godwin played well. Peyton Barber played well. America’s Quarterback played fantastic. Vita Vea had his best game of his young NFL career. Jason Pierre-Paul broke a 12-year double-digit sack drought. Ryan Smith broke an eight-game takeaway drought. Gerald McCoy had a sack.

DeSean Jackson? He pouted, raced off the field and couldn’t get out of the Den of Depression fast enough (Joe caught on video DJax even beating the game officials off the field). Once again, DJax and Jameis couldn’t link up. And while there was so much to be happy with, including a win, DJax sulked.

He then took to Instagram.

First he wrote, “If God is making you wait, then prepare to receive more than you asked for.” Later in the comments — which DJax shut down — a Falcons fans suggested he needs to get out of Tampa and play on a team that will utilize him, DJax responded, “man bra trust ! I know smh”

(Mind you, the man replying to the unknown commenter is the same man Bucs Bit-O-Honey-snacking, Ozark-watching, yams-eating coach Dirk Koetter either has to beg to return punts or the coaching staff is scared of Jackson and doesn’t ask him. So don’t get Joe going about one-score games.)

It’s a rough year for Jackson, who is collecting $11 million of Team Glazer loot this season per First, Jackson publicly goes on national television and pleads for journeyman backup Ryan Fitzpatrick to keep starting at quarterback. Fitz then demonstrated why he is a career backup, so that option is/should be shut down for good.

Then Jackson asked for a trade. Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht denied the request.

Now when his team wins a game (finally) and the franchise quarterback connects with everyone except — once again, Jackson — Jackson pouts like LeGarrette Blount. He can’t run away quick enough to get home where he can gripe on social media.

    Cya DJax ✌🏼. We won’t miss you either, nor do we have time for divas on our team.

  2. Bucfan1988 Says:

    The DJAX experiment is over folks. Time to cut bait & run at the end of the season. Save yourself $10 milly to use on some defensive talent…

  3. Pepsi Says:

    If winston just can’t connect well with djax despite being able to connect no problem with everyone else, then when you add in the fact that Djax wanted to be traded and the fact that djax is displaying poor attitude.. then you have to ask why didn’t Jason Licht trade this guy? I think this definitely tells you winston did/does not have the confidence of the guys in charge at the moment. Uncertainty with Winston’s future as a Buc made it hard to trade a potentially potent asset. The better winston emboldens his case to remain the starting QB next year, the more diminished the value of Djax as a Buc becomes. I wish Licht would have just traded him, if winston isn’t the starter next year then Licht isn’t the GM anyway. Selfish move by Licht not to trade him imo

  4. adam from ny Says:

    he actually seems more concerned with never taking a hit, than catching balls and getting yardage…his body language proves it every time a play goes his way, caught or not….

    and it seems to have rubbed off slightly on evans this year as well…but i think evans is over the djax scenario and realizes it’s time to ball out more…

    it’s unlikely djax will be here next year, hump will most likely get resigned, and we will hopefully add a “stretch the field” type receiver to the mix regardless…

  5. Bosch Says:

    According to the box score Jackson was targeted 8 times with 3 receptions. Evans was also targeted 8 times. With 6 receptions. Looking forward to Godwin (4 targets and 4 receptions) being the other receiver to get 8 targets per game next year. Oh, this just in. There are 5 games left this year. I think DJ needs to return punts. Or go Keyshawn and be deactivated.

  6. SOEbuc Says:

    This guys always been a b!tch. I wish he had a better connection with Jameis also but he has to take it outside the locker room and cry on social media. “If God is making you wait then be prepared for more than you asked for.” This sounds really gross to me. Feel he’s saying this so teams will still pick him up on a fat contract after this year. Is God making you wait to add more multi-millions to your bank account? So sad. Go cry somewhere else and save us some money next year. HOPEFULLY A BEAUTIFUL SUNRISE OF JUSTIN WATSON IN THE THREE SPOT NEXT YEAR.

  7. Bradley Clement Says:

    Keyshawn was deactivated for less. Just saying…
    Get some respect Licht and do the right thing.

  8. mjc Says:

    Opening play of the game dropped pass by DJAX.

    Everyone else seemed fine receiving the ball today. DJAX reminds me a lot of Chris Baker.

  9. Architek Says:

    There is three sides to this story –
    1. Koetter and Monken inability to be creative to get a undeniable weapon the ball consistently.
    2. Jackson immaturity
    3. Jameis and Jackson lack of chemistry (both at fault for this)

  10. westernbuc Says:

    I know Jameis isn’t helping him, but it’s not like he finishes his routes.

    What should he expect? He chased the money. That’s what happens.

  11. tmaxcon Says:

    It’s time to shut him down. Let Godwin play

  12. Pickgrin Says:

    Grow up DJax!

    You’ve got 731 receiving yards and 5 total TDs playing in 10 games so far – and you are making ELEVEN MILLION DOLLARS this year playing football for a living.

    Nobody likes losing.

    Here’s something else nobody likes… A WR making ELEVEN MILLION DOLLARS on a team loaded with receiving talent – who doesn’t give full effort on way too many plays and then complains he isn’t being utilized to his liking…

  13. Getaclue Says:

    He’s had chances. It’s his piss poor effort. Better off not even putting him in on offense with the turnovers that have been a result of his lack of effort trying to get him the ball. Than can keep him just on returns or Keyshawn him and deactivate him the rest of the season

  14. Chris in WA Says:

    You never hear Larry Fitzgerald complain about the QB’s that have been throwing him the ball (Kurt Warner’s magic season non-withstanding) nor did you hear Calvin Johnson complain so much.

    Those two receivers I mentioned above? Their teams would do anything to keep them and Arizona and Detroit did. Meanwhile D-Jax is on his third team and soon to be his fourth. He is like Kelvin Benjamin complaining about Cam Newton. Look around you D-Jax! The Bucs can win without you! Godwin and Humphries can make the same plays that you can and your speed will lose out to Father Time eventually. Why didn’t Licht trade this bum when the Bucs could have gotten some actual value before the trade deadline?

  15. DB55 Says:

    I’m not sure why Jameis even throws him the ball anymore. What’s the point?

  16. THETRUTH Says:

    Chris : not sure about winning without him last time I checked we don’t win much with anyone

  17. BJC Says:

    Jameis Winston dropped love on all his receivers and running backs after the game today. Jameis did not even say DJax’s name. Tells me all I need to know. Djax has gotta go.

  18. Waterboy Says:

    Maybe Koetter will make him captain for the Carolina game.

  19. Jean Lafitte Says:

    It’s too bad there is a disconnect between them. mentally and on the field. He can be a weapon when he’s accurately targeted. It’s time for JW and ME to reach out to DJax. He’s feeling dejected, rejected, and neglected. A happy DJax can be a good DJax.

  20. Krojen Says:

    bucsbox a falcons fan? hmm…

  21. Fix it already Says:

    Honestly who couldn’t see this coming?

    Jackson has always been a Diva though.

    I’ve been watching this kid play since his days at Cal.
    Trust me when I say there’s A LOT of baggage that comes with this kid.

    So excuse my bias

  23. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    February 23rd, 2017 at 10:57 am ←

    Ding Ding – Exactly

    I would rather we grab 2 solid receivers + plus draft a receiver.

    • Acquire (either): Brandon Marshall or Mike Wallace
    • Sign: Marquise Goodwin or Markus Wheaton
    • Draft: WR Zay Jones or Chris Godwin
    • Draft: TE Evan Ingram

    Option# 1

    • WR Mike Evans | Russell Shepard
    • WR Brandon Marshall | Zay Jones
    • WR Marquise Goodwin | Adam Humphries
    • TE Cameron Brate | Evan Ingram

    Option# 2

    • WR Mike Evans | Russell Shepard
    • WR Mike Wallace | Chris Godwin
    • WR Marquise Goodwin | Adam Humphries
    • TE Cameron Brate | Evan Ingram

    Either way, you wanna flip the variables – it’s a huge Upgrade for Winston.

  24. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Sometimes – U Get What U Ask For !!!

  25. Armor1977 Says:

    Yeah Djax is a spoiled diva who still thinks hes a number 1 WR when hes clearly a number 2 or number 3 in some systems. His lack of effort is really on display now. He doesn’t even put his hands up on some of those “incompletions” coming his way but everyone else makes the catches. If everyone around you is able to do something and you are getting the same opportunities but not being successful maybe the odd ball in the equation is Mr. Jackson. I said it when he was signed last year that he would destroy the rotational chemistry of the receiving core which he did for a year and a half along with dividing the locker room. Bad attitude and poor sportsman needs to go.

  26. RyJo Says:

    I feel for the guy. He has 1, MAYBE 2 good years of elite NFL speed left (Father Time gets everybody), and it just ain’t gonna happen between him and Winston. It LOOKS like it is Winston’s fault, too. Winston just can’t seem to muster any down-field accuracy.

  27. OneBuc55 Says:

    We don’t have time for this selfish crap, we’re trying to get wins…

    The sad part is the fact that he’s basically useless in 50/50 ball situations and on running downs…and as someone else stated earlier, he quits on his routes often…every pass must be perfect…This was a bad signing; I won’t fault Licht for this one because the intent was good, Jackson just isn’t a good fit here…

    He’s still a good player; just not as good as he thinks he is…imo he’s more of a situational player than an every down player…he needs to be on a team with strong veteran leadership in the locker room, not here in Tampa were the locker room is very fragile at this point do to many young players on the roster a no real established leadership…

    As many have stated, we should have granted him his trade request before the deadline….

  28. Buc4L Says:

    Get him outta here!!! Jamies still tries to force him the ball with NO effort on his part!

  29. BucEmUp Says:

    Cut him please. We’ve got guys like Justin Watson waiting g for playing time. Get this guy off the team. I mean why would we use our fastest most electric return man at punt or kickoff return right?

  30. Elita Vita Says:

    Jameis looked like a winning quarterback yesterday choosing more carefully when he threw the ball into “traffic”. This more conservative nature could serve as a winning formula for him and the Bucs. Great kudos for Barber as well as my namesake Vita Vea. Both showed up ready to play. “Go Bucs”!

  31. Bucsfanman Says:

    Look, diva-ness aside, don’t act like the balls thrown his way weren’t terribly overthrown or not accurate. Jameis missed TWO sure-fire TDs. He also missed a wide open DJax on an out route that sailed clean over his head.
    I’m not a huge fan of DJax but facts are facts. He and Jameis just cannot get on the same page.

  32. Joe Dunn Says:

    man . . . .bra. . . . .trust ????? WTF language is he speaking??

  33. Colonel Angus Says:

    What the fack does “man bra trust” mean?

  34. JabooBuc Says:

    It’s not like they aren’t trying. 8 targets is a pretty good indicator that they are making the effort. The deep ball that was overthrown in the 2nd Q was actually a good throw by JW in that DJax was actually pretty well covered. Yes, he had a step but he was 40-50 yards down field. That ball was thrown to where the defender has no chance.

    I think that DJax represents an opportunity for JW to assert himself as a leader on this team. He needs to get his buy in or let him know to hit the streets. JW seems to always want everyone to like him. Some times a leader has to accept that some people just aren’t on board and it’s okay to just move on.

  35. Ndog Says:

    The reason for the issues this year are from this guy, period.

  36. Oneilbucs Says:

    The thing is that every team Jackson played for had one thing that this team just don’t have and that’s a running back. He played with McCoy and Morris in the back field. McCoy with philly and Morris in Washington . Who do he have here . When you can’t run the ball it effects the quarterback and receivers and I don’t know why no one can’t see that .

  37. Jason Says:

    Hey, DJax, don’t let the door hit you in the @ss on your way out. And take Grimes and his wench of a wife with you when you go. Good riddance!

  38. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Not the “man bra” DJax. It’s called a “mansierre”!

  39. Jbeachbuc Says:

    I’m just sitting here drinking my coffee and wondering if I’ve ever seen D-Jax layout for a ball slightly overthrown (Eagles Skins or Bucs).

  40. Joe Blahak Says:

    He won’t fight for a ball and gets alligator arms…Another pussy all about the money and himself…Trade this cancer and the Gmac softie and your team gets tougher and a couple of draft picks added too…

  41. @FanOfFairPlay Says:

    I’m sure Djax will be great someplace else, but not here. It is apparent to all with eyes to see. That said, he can be a tremendous asset. I wish him well.

  42. John5 Says:

    You forgot to mention our kicker made all his kicks. Time to kick D Jax out. He hasn’t been a Tampa guy since he started. He hates it here.
    His lack of effort was definitely on full display as usual. He missed catches once again, and seemed to be in the wrong spots on his routes making zero effort to make a play. I could see Jameis’s frustration with him. Meanwhile Jameis looked like classic Jameis hitting every open receiver without bias or preference.

  43. Bucwylde Says:

    @Colonel Angus “What the fack does “man bra trust” mean?”

    I speak Jive so I will translate.

    Geewillakers, Friend rest assured I’m feeling the same way about this whole situation!

  44. Ed Says:

    Jackson is clearly down on his role with the team. He needs to play all out every week, keeping his mouth shut and not displaying the bad body language after a bad throw to him.

    Its obvious to me that the Bucs offense which is way too vertical, looks much better when they are throwing crossing routes or slants to Godwin, or underneath to Humphries. Jameis can throw those intermediate balls to spots where the receivers are supposed to be. He does not thrive in a system with deep drops where he has to throw it vertically to moving targets. Its just not his game and with a different offense and more creativity he can be an efficient quarterback, but he’ll never by a superstar, he doesn’t have the anticipation and quick release.

    Jackson would be fine working in an offense that creates mismatches, the Bucs are too predictable.

    Having said all of that, Winston played a solid game, most of us would give him a B+ grade for his decision making. He ran or checked down when he was in trouble instead of spinning around and trying to force throws down the field. If he would play like that 3 out of 4 games the Bucs would be smart to keep him another year but if thats only a 1 out of 4 game for him he isn’t the guy.

  45. Nick Says:

    He was a cancer when we first signed him and now he is a fully blown cancer. We can’t get rid of him fast enough. This is where Jason comes up way short as a GM, he should have shipped this butt clown out of town at the trade deadline. Jason and Dirk are weak and why this team is where it is.


  46. Colonel Angus Says:


    Thanks for the interpretation, a little rusty on my jive talk these days. Maybe I should get out more.

  47. Dave Anglin Says:

    Just deactivate him the rest of the season. Give Watson some experience. So done with this guy. Now we see why Philly traded him and Washington let him walk, he’s all about DJax!

  48. Bucsdelight Says:

    To be fair, he is under utilized. We should definitely be getting our worth out of him. No reason he can’t be returning punts for this team. He is our #2 WR, but is treated more like a #3 or #4. Only reason he wants Fitz, is because Fitz throws to him and can hit him on the deep.

  49. JRUSS Says:


    Jameis threw a skinny post and Djax flattened out the route to separate from the defenders. In my opinion he wasn’t open. If we knew what the correct route was then we could debate on whether or not it was an over throw.

  50. Dapostman Says:

    Mesean is gone next year and he knows it. He’s complaining because he isn’t going to get 11 million dollars. He’s way overpaid. One trick pony. I’m sure his competition rate is under 60 percent. When Winston has to force the ball to certain guys instead of using all his targets he suffers and so do the Bucs. Cut bait with Mesean next year and if he keeps this up deactivate him and play Watson more.

  51. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I’ve been whining about the rotten culture on this team this year.

    Yesterday was different except for ONE player. See ya DJAX the house cleaning starts with YOU!

    Did you guys see the interviews that came out of the locker room. GMC and JPP are right next to each other in the locker.
    They were interviewing GMC about the DL play and he just kept going to JPP saying he’s been here a long time and JPP did something huge in breaking that 10 sack curse. He was giving so much love to JPP that I think JPP was getting a little embarrassed. GMC’s idea of the entire DL coming out as a unit instead of as individuals was great.

    Yeah winning cures everything and it was against a really bad team…but it just seemed to have a different feel yesterday.

    It’s the very FIRST time I’ve seen JW play with that much poise and DISCIPLINE. If he keeps that up it’s great news for the Bucs.

  52. Bucsfanman Says:

    JRUSS- Yea, that’s fair. And I think we might be talking about two different plays, but it’s the same argument.
    Still needs to work on the accuracy of those bombs though. Evans and DJax would still be running if thrown to the right side.

  53. Bucsfan3 Says:

    This dude is a Team Cancer. Where are all the fans praising D-Jax and piling on the Jameis hate?! Jameis is a team player. D-Jax is not.

  54. BradentuckeyBuc Says:

    Nice to see unity on this site for the first time in forever! MeJax has worn out his welcome. A little effort wouldn’t kill you!

  55. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Sit him out the rest of the year. Add that to the long list of Jason Licht mistakes. But what’s new.

  56. Greg Says:

    The biggest problem with MeSean acting out is that it essentially makes our offense play 10 v. 11 as MeSean can’t be counted on to pull his fair share whenever he’s on the field. Make him field punts and kickoffs, let Watson play, you know he’ll give 100% effort at a minimum.

  57. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Tbbucs3 Says:
    “Add that to the long list of Jason Licht mistakes. But what’s new.”


    To be fair to Licht,, most of us were excited about the DJax signing, in spite of knowing there were some red flags.

    Unfortunately it just has not worked out, and now it is time for him to go.

  58. __TGH__ Says:

    Having this guy in the lineup is important. Even if they can’t connect on the deep pass, the safeties still need to drop back further, opening the rest of the field for the rest of the receivers. Hopefully, he can make some catches and his attitude will change. Great player, we need him.

  59. Jerry Jones Says:

    Its par for the course, just surprised he wasn’t gone sooner.

  60. RM BucYYC Says:

    Hey, DJax, don’t let the door hit you in the @ss on your way out. And take Grimes and his wench of a wife with you when you go. Good riddance!

    Grimes and DJax should not be mentioned in the same sentence. Brent has been great in the locker room and is giving it his all when he’s out there and is still our best corner(yes our secondry sucks).
    And calm down on the wench talks, she stands behind her man 100% and sits among the fans every week I’m not sure how that makes her a wench.

  61. gman Says:

    Maybe he can get some of his hood rat gangsta friends to have his back. Trash person and obviously a trash teammate. He was a bad fit on the field because he needs a precise QB and Jameis ain’t that. He is a bad fit in the locker room because he is a me first little Beeyotch

  62. denjoe Says:

    A lot of it is this crappy coaching staff, that being said, I don’t see him diving or jumping for anything either.

  63. Fire Light Says:

    And people thought certain fans were crazy for mentioning DJax should’ve been traded.

  64. quickdrw21 Says:

    Umm anyone seriously thinking Djax is the issue might want to remember hes one of the most talented recievers we have ever had. The fact that JW fumble cant get him the ball is proof we got the wrong dude under center not the other way around.

  65. Dapostman Says:

    Mesean Jackson has played in 152 NFL games with 588 catches. That’s less than 4 catches a game. About 55 catches a season. His catch % is 56%. In a league where receivers average about 63% he’s BELOW average. Mesean is a one trick pony. That’s it. His numbers tell the whole story. He’s another self promoter who catches a long pass here and there and makes it look and sound like it happens consistently. It doesn’t. Put him on IR or cut bait.
