Jameis And The Visor

November 29th, 2018

Focusing on visor.

Later today, the Tampa Bay pen and mic club will sit before America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, and get down to the bottom of the most probing question of the season that has the franchise teetering in the balance.

That question is, what’s the deal with you now wearing a visor, Jameis?

A lot of Bucs fans have been asking why Jameis has worn a clear visor in recent games. Twice in the past week, Bucs Bit-O-Honey-snacking, Ozark-watching, yams-eating coach Dirk Koetter was asked about the visor.

And Koetter seems as perplexed as the next person. Friday, Koetter was asked if the visor helps or hurts Jameis’ play. Koetter seemed surprised by the question.

“I didn’t even notice, to tell you the truth,” Koetter said. “I’m not sure.”

Yesterday, Koetter once again was asked about the visor.

“I’ll tell you the same thing, I have no idea. I have no idea,” Koetter said. “I didn’t even notice, to be honest with you.”

Koetter did mention that Jameis would have had to get special permission from the NFL to wear a tinted visor (for example, for a medical reason). Jameis does not need special permission to wear a clear visor, per Koetter.

Now Joe had someone tell him on Twitter that the size and shape of Jameis’ visor prevents it from being prescription. Joe does not know if that is accurate.

Joe does know that when Jameis was in college (and then while attending a Florida State game as a member of the Bucs), Jameis was caught by cameras squinting heavily. Jameis does wear glasses at times.

This mystery should be solved later today when Jameis conducts his weekly press conference.

    FREE TICKETS!!!!! What a joke of an organization. I say BOYCOTT Raymond James until #KLUELESSKOETTER is fired.

    As one of the hugest JW fans out there and I can say we wears it so of course defenses can’t get a read on his eyes.

    Thats just me though. But it is not the visor though. JW plays good every game excluding the eating Ws game and the Bengals

  3. Waterboy Says:

    I watched every play of that game and never even noticed that.

    It’s a clear visor. Unless the sunlight creates glare, not sure how a clear visor can hide the eyes.

    Must be those hater blockers on.

  6. Krojen Says:

    He’s gonna need glasses to find a fan at the stadium. They’ve stooped to hoping people will watch Winston for free.

  7. Jerry Jones Says:

    Maybe he just wants to protect his eyes.

  8. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Magoo wearing a prescription visor? This is as scandalous as when it was discovered that Vinny T was color blind, hence all of HIS interceptions.

  9. richbucsfan Says:

    How about this for a practical solution…he is now wearing contacts and the visor is to protect his eyes…

  10. AKickInTheBucNuts Says:

    Hopefully, there’s a HUD in that visor to track open receivers.

  11. Zwak Says:

    He did wear contacts when he played baseball in college? I think there is alot more to this.

  13. SilverBuc Says:

    Just try to remember the last time you saw Jameis squinting, it’s been a while. I think richbucsfan has it right, he’s wearing contacts.

  14. JAXRHETT Says:

    How does the head coach of the team not even notice it or have any idea about it?

  15. Bucsfanman Says:

    He only wears the visor for no mere mortal can glare into his naked eyes!
    True story!

    I hope this isn’t one of those Vinny Testaverde deals where they discover he’s color blind or something.

  16. The Buc Realist Says:

    Maybe it helps hide his eyes when he stares down a WR!!!!!!!!!!!

    GO Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. NonyaDamnBucsiness Says:

    I think he is now wearing contacts and is using the visor to protect his eyes from getting poked and loosing the contacts. I see him squinting all the time . I think his bad visuon is a big reason some of his long throws are off. He just can’t see that well to judge distance.

  18. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    50/50 on jameis but if the dude needed a vision chk what a malpractice the drs of the bucs have been doing to the franchise the past 4 years as well as at FSU, easy check on this would be a reporter or someone that saw jameis driving down the road if he is wearing glasses (if he does not wear contacts)…i am with the above he seems like he cannot see with all the squintin in the past

  19. Robert Says:

    Now it’s contacts and bad vision

    The excuses are endless

    Ah the life of privledge

  20. Cobraboy Says:

    Why not Lasik?

  21. EvolvingBucsfan Says:

    I would think with all the games being 1 o’clock games in direct sun there would be glare on the visor, the glare would help to hide his eyes and who he might be leading . Take any advantage as you can, seems smart to me.

  22. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Some people are very sensitive to light. I know I am.

    Joe Says:
    “It’s a clear visor. Unless the sunlight creates glare, not sure how a clear visor can hide the eyes.”

    There are clear glasses that reduce glare. People who get migraines use them. I wonder if that’s the type of thing it is?

  24. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    The fact that so many people are using this as an excuse to hate on him shows the true stature of those people.

  25. voiceofreason Says:

    it’s to control his laser and protect the other players.

  26. Erik w/ Clean Athletics Says:


    If Jameis would just bury his ego and either wear glasses or use a prescription visor, GUARANTEED he will be a better QB consistently.

    I’ve always known that his vision is a hindrance.

  27. Joe Says:

    use a prescription visor

    Am told there is no such thing

  28. Owlykat Says:

    That visor likely helped last Sunday to up Jameis’ game so to me no matter what kind of visor it is make sure he is wearing it against the Panthers this week. For what it is worth, WDAE 620 am called it a “prescription visor”.

    LMAO!!!!!!!!! — Ok man, I am a big Jameis fan… but that was pretty frickin funny. Nice one.

  30. Mikey Says:

    Koetter wears being clueless too much on his sleeve

  31. stpetebucsfan Says:

    “How about this for a practical solution…he is now wearing contacts and the visor is to protect his eyes…”

    There’s your answer folks. Occam’s Razor.

  32. Brandon Says:

    If he’s wearing contacts, the visor would obviously offer a little help in keeping dirt, grass, rubber pellets, and fingers from getting into his eyes.
