Daily Meditation

December 7th, 2018

America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, implied this week that part of his gameday routine includes not talking to himself. 

There was an interesting exchange in Jameis’ weekly news conference in which he explained that he’s a big fan of the HEADSPACE app and he engages in daily meditation to stay balanced.

Hey, whatever works.

But what Joe’s most focused on is the visible change in Jameis’ demeanor over the last month. He’s gone from high-octane leadership presence to subdued. It almost doesn’t feel like Jameis.

Jameis’ news conference video this week is below. It’s boring, which is fine. But sometimes Joe has watched Jameis lately and asked rhetorically, ‘Where is Jameis?” What really got Joe wondering was this locker room video after the 49ers win.

    Would rather have a mature mistake free winning boring Jameis than the Rah-Rah, life of the party immature wild child losing Jameis.

    I’ve been hearing a lot lately about the power of meditation from people that are the polar opposite of the stereotypical meditator.

    it’s almost like someone got in his ear and told him don’t be a dumba$$, you’re throwing away 20 million.

    It’s called growing up. We all went through it. We all went from boys to young men at some point in our lives. Jameis is maturing..Hes learning…..and I hope the Bucs brass don’t bail on him during this transition. The guy is going to be a top ten an year in year out and will play in many playoff games with a good defense.

    Sunday lets see if they can keep Kamara under 200 yards of scrimmage

    Good for him, stay boring, win games!
    I don’t care what it takes! Goat yoga, self flagellation, cupping, whatever it takes!

    I think it’s a positive. Since Jameis has come in the NFL the one area that I wanted him to really improve on was simply calming down and being a more mature leader. Eating W’s? Stuff like that just makes a mockery of him and the team, whether you like it or not. And I think that it has the same impact on the players in the locker room. A lot of the players thought it was ridiculous too.

    There’s nothing wrong with having energy. But energy and charisma isn’t what garners the whole team’s respect. Especially when you’re young. The new calm, subdued Jameis seems more focused on what’s important. He’s done trying to make everyone believe in the game or believe in him like he does. Especially after he has been chewed up and spit out by everyone, including half of the community in which he has so proudly and graciously served.

    I’m thinking that he took some notes from watching Fitz. The whole team respects Fitz, bad game or not. He’s always calm and relaxed. Yet passionate and driven. After this year which has been so humbling for Jameis in more ways than one, I personally was expecting this change in his demeanor.

    As long as we win it’s all good.

    Meditation doesn’t mean much more than observing your thoughts. It puts space in between your emotions and your thoughts, and your thoughts and your actions. Reducing impulsivity allows you to make the decisions you actually know are the right ones, rather than the ones your emotions tell you to make in the moment. If Jameis becomes an avid meditator, I really believe his off the field problems will be completely solved, and his on the field performances will be much more consistent.

    I prefer this over eating his fingers any day.

    It’s called maturity, something we’ve all been hoping would happen. let’s hope it continues. Confidence is always better than cockiness

    Anyone else think he kinda looks like a young Stevie Wonder in that pic?

  15. Tony LA Says:

    Extremely well said

  16. BucTown Says:

    Just got off the phone with America – they said Jameis is not their quarterback.

  17. Kobe Faker Says:

    “Kobe Faker was livid during the JW head butting days while the Bucsheep thought a qb should have middle linebacker mentality.

    The ceiling is so high for JW. He still has his eye poping out of control emotional craziness in some games. He has to be calm and collective.

    JW needs new coaching that will advance his emotional/mental game. JW still is not a thinker out on the field. With a short passing uptempo west coast offense, he will learn how to play chess with the DC.”

    The alpha and the omega. All that is quarterback, all that is man. Welcome back Famous Jameis! He’s a man now

  19. TBTemojin Says:

    Mediation is the most common factor with highly successful people all across the world.. It is not Taboo it is highly recommended among senior leadership in the military and other several high stress jobs. Hearing that Jameis is meditating gives me hope that he will be able to find balance in his personal life.

    Looks like he’s been taking press conference lessons from Belichick

    He looks like Stevie wonder throwing those picks
