Carson Palmer Talks About Jameis Getting A Technical Cleanup

January 17th, 2019

Former No. 1 overall pick quarterback Carson Palmer was a 33-year-old living an NFL hell of three consecutive four-win seasons when Bruce Arians brought him to Arizona to lead his team in 2013.

Palmer proceeded to go on a 29-9 run as a starter and return to the Pro Bowl after a nine-year hiatus.

It’s fair to say Arians resuscitated his career.

Palmer was telling that Arians will work similar wonders with America’s Quarterback, 25-year-old Jameis Winston.

“They’re going to be great together,” Palmer said via this cut-and-paste quote from “It’s probably the best thing that could’ve happen to Jameis at this point in his career. Getting a guy like B.A. to come in and clean up some things technically. And really installing what he does best and that’s push the ball down the field. He finds ways to get the ball down the field to Mike Evans with DeSean Jackson there and speed on the outside. His passing game, his vertical passing game is just different. It’s hard to defend. You don’t see it throughout the league. Every team doesn’t do what he does. That combined with the way that Jameis can throw the ball down the field with accuracy, I think it’s a great tandem.”

Interesting to hear Palmer say Jameis will get cleaned up technically by Arians. New Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens was his QB coach for years in Arizona. Jameis will have Clyde Christiansen, who Arians says is among the very best in the business when it comes to mechanics.

Of course, Arians will be overseeing all things Jameis.

So what are Jameis’ technical flaws? Joe looks forward to Arians answering that question.

    Whats flawed? Easy answer: the team he is on. Bucs are born losers and I’m pretty sure if JW was in a winning culture he could have a MVP and Superbowl by now.

  2. Bruce Blahak Says:

    Technical flaw? Slow brain prossessing ….he’ll need a brain transplant to cure that flaw

  3. SOEbuc Says:

    If the Glazer Kids just came up to BA and said “We will give you a fat stack of cash to fix Jameis,” that might of sounded like a basic Glazer Kid move. Hopefully they said, “We almost have all the talent, can you bring in your people to take care of it.”

    I’m very hopeful these coaches can get Jaymiss to lead his receivers and put the ball in the best position to gain y.a.c. and keep his receivers uninjured.

    The best QBs know how to put the ball where it needs to be instead of simply putting it in the vicinity.

    Finesse i guess?

  6. 813bucboi Says:

    i think winston will finally have a qualified nfl QB coach coaching him up….his footwork and throwing mechanics has regressed….imo, it improved slightly in 2016 but regressed in 2017 and 2018…..

    im more worried about the oline, rb, lb and dline….

    Please Jamies don’t grab another woman’s crotch this offseason

  8. Broy34 Says:

    Coming from the guy who spelled “prosessing” incorrectly

  9. rhenry Says:

    How about “processing.”

  10. pick6 Says:

    i hope the deep ball mechanics\arc can improve and maybe we see a quicker release on the shorter routes

    perhaps also going back to school on footwork. it looked like Jameis spent so much time with his pre-draft\offseason coach George Whitfield working on how to throw from a messy pocket (it has paid off lately) that his traditional footwork has been neglected a little

    overall, it won’t be easy with the limited offseason time coaches and player get, unless they hand off some drills and goals to JW’s private coaches

  11. Iron Wombat Says:

    Well it’s only been mentioned every other game over the last 2 years that his footwork is a mess. Koetter never fixed that. Then Koetter & Co. never fixed anything. Hey Joe why don’t you find out what Licht said to Vea where all of a sudden he went from bust to guy with some real potential. I want to know if it was just ignore your coaches and go out and play.

  12. Pryda..sec147 Says:

    BA is going to get the Best out of Jameis ! I believe he will have MVP caliber season! Biggest weapon we need to get Jameis is the Play-Action ! Get a damn RB and Fix Olive! #Unstoppable

    Stay healthy! …

  13. BucEmUp Says:

    Maybe not trying to force balls to a crybaby has been diva wide receiver every sunday and putting the guys who play with heart in his olace woukd help Jameis. Maybe a defemse that doesnt give up 28 points in the first twenty minutes would help Jameis. Maybe Jameis having the freedom to change plays without his coach publicly bashing him for ut would help Jameis.


  14. kyle Says:

    i think jameison is a good qb…

  15. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Winston needs to work on touch passes. He is a fastball pitcher who plays QB.

  16. westernbuc Says:

    It isn’t Jameis’s footwork that is throwing interceptions

  18. Bucfan118 Says:

    When the last coach was hired we where sold it was to keep Jamis growing, what happed? I’m not a football guru but all Jamis needs is some sunglasses, pull up any game you like and watch how easy it is to see where he is looking.

  19. D1QB Says:


    I have to disagree about regressing. Jameis has had poor mechanics and bad footwork day 1 . He’s also had solid mechanics and text book perfect footwork
    day 1. The issue isn’t regression it’s consistency

    Lack of consistency in the fundamentals is reflected in his performances on the field. JW is inconsistent from play to play and game to game. I have a lot of confidence in the new staff and I believe that JW will begin to be more consistent

    ### I see that standard explanations and misguided comments ‘re improving Winston is not something that Winston needs to address it’s insteAd improve the running…..blah blah blah……C Palmer didn’t mention any of those things and He is qualified , knows the position and the game, Isn’t locally born, raised or educated in the state.

    So the question is …How you gonna ignore it and are you gonna keep believing that anyone who points out the technical aspects of JW game is a local know nothing and or hater.

    DEAR LORD—-you have blessed us with great weather,loyal fans and a great coaching staff.Could we please have one tiny playoff victory this year–and please bless our head coach with continuing good health.

  21. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Well it’s clear Carson Palmer never posted on JBF…lol

    That combined with the way that Jameis can throw the ball down the field with accuracy, I think it’s a great tandem.”

  23. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    All the QB support for Jameis should negate bringing in a veteran backup…..It will be interesting to see what Arians thinks about Ryan Griffin who has been on the roster for 3 years without an NFL snap. And, I somehow doubt he will carry 3 QBs on the roster……should use one on the PS if an injury occurs.

  24. DB55 Says:

    George Whitfield working on how to throw from a messy pocket
    1. Remember when Koetter said our best play was the scramble play?

    2. Remember when Winston was ranked #1 outside the pocket?

    3. Add it all up and it’s easy to figure out CALEB BENNOCH AND DEMAR DOTSON should have been arrested for endangering the life of a minor.

  25. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Hey Bruce Blahak if you get a brain transplant maybe you will know how to spell process. Bruce wins today’s moronic Bucfan award. Your trophy paperwork is being “prossessed” and should arrive soon. We will just need one of your literate caretakers to sign off. We cannot let slow adults sign off for their trophies.

  26. Dooshlarue Says:


    Take it easy on Bruce Blahak……spelling is not his strong suit……in fact, his last name is actually spelled Butthole, but he keeps getting it wrong.

  27. Destinjohnny Says:

    How do u fix someone who sees half the field and isn’t accurate?
    It’s like making someone taller

  28. Destinjohnny Says:

    Sb where is my jersey mate?

  29. BucLover727 Says:

    @Bruce Blahack:

    Winston was accepted to Stanford. What colleges wanted you?

  30. Fire Light Says:

    Please fire Bucs Fan #his pin code from this site

  31. BringBucsBack Says:

    I thought #3 spent a crazy amount of time on footwork last off-season?

  32. FireMikeSmith_orDie Says:

    to the guy who made a comment about footwork not causing Jameis to throw interceptions, I’m just going to say what everybody here is thinking, “you’re a moron–at least when it comes to knowing anything about football, even the basics”

  33. Billy Says:


    His brain couldn’t “prossess” that statement

  34. unbelievable Says:



    pot… kettle… black… something, something… LOfknL.

    Take a lap kid.

  35. D1 Says:


    I wont bash you because you pointed out something that “smart fans” seem blind to.
    Your suggested remedy is a tad excessive but at least you identified an issue that Winston can work to correct without involving wholesale changes to every one not named jameis winston.

    A coach can design things to speed up his play and limit his decision making.
    Basically, you coach to the players strengths and mask his weaknesses. Winston was put 9ut there without any filters or blinders, His strenghts and weakness were put on center stage each week going forward I believe that the coaches will not put winston in positions that expose the developing portion for all to see.

    I don’t know what’s it going to take to correct the problem as it’s a mental process we’re talking about. It’s when Winston decides to change and begins to rework his thinking that is the question.

  36. Buc1987 Says:

    Hey Bruce….processes this if you can.

    Jameis Winston’s GPA was over 3.0 in college as he was studying pre-med.

    Prior to enrolling at FSU, Jameis Winston was accepted to Stanford University after graduating with honors in high school with a 4.0 GPA.

  37. Phil Says:

    I think it will be a great match. Can’t wait.

  38. D1 Says:


    The speed and accuracy of JW ability to process information is something Bruce pointed to as a problem. There’s no shot calling out jameis as stupid . His GPA in High school is not an issue nor does it support or deny his ability to sort thru the visual confusion which is what processing is to the position.

    Pre med?
    What’s Winston’s major? It’s not pm. ..c’mon man.

  39. bucsnole Says:

    Jameis needs several things. . . attention to the little things in his throwing mechanics (footwork), a running attack, a decent defense and an OL that can give him a clean pocket to work from

  40. Issaic haggins Says:

    Doest or can’t extend properly on his long ball , doesn’t get his feet and hips aligned on his deep ball. His motion on his deep ball has to be long ala more baseball and pocket room must be created or lottsa lottsa lottsa practice to release a lil earlier with lil less velocity and a lil more arch ;feet , hips and release have to be in the right direction and he is often mis aligned . Winston just isn’t an arch throwing guy !!!

  41. Buc1987 Says:

    D1…sure that’s exactly what he was saying….that he’s not dumb…he just prosssesses things slower than most…..

    C’mon man……

  42. orlbucfan Says:

    Hope Arians calls a few 2-minute drills and no-huddles for JW. Winston is very good at both, and DK forgot all about doing it. Looking forward to the fall. Please resign Hump BTW. Let Jackson go.

  43. Ken Says:

    Since Lovie was fired, Jamies has never had a coach who wanted him to succeed, period. For whatever reason, Koetter and Monken thought that the O-Line play was good, and placed no emphasis on QB protection or their poor running game. If you want to see a QB struggle, no matter how good the QB is, take away the protection and limit his rushing game.

    That is why Winston struggled in Koetter’s offense. Running three verticals, all in 10+ yard routes with an O-line that was a turnstile with pressure on the QB in less than 2 seconds, then tell Jameis, “Make better decisions.” Winston strip-sacked from behind, then telling Jameis to “Protect the ball better.” Why are these facts so invisible?

  44. Owlykat Says:

    You are right Ken! It all went back to Koetter and Monken both buying all the lies Warhop fed them instead of holding Warhop responsible and forcing him to develop his backup linemen and then try them to see if they were better. Too bad both of them were blind to what was on tape that we all saw. When Warhop sold the Bucs on giving contracts to the two worst O Linemen we have had soon after he was hired, Warhop kept insisting on starting them over backups who were twice as good as the bafoons he had sold them on. Warhop may have been a better OL Coach earlier in his long career, but he must have forgotten everything he learned when he got here from the Browns! He kept trying to prove what he had told his Superiors instead of holding Benenoch and D. Smith responsible for their awful blocking and their obvious poor protection, needless penalties, loafing, and failure to open holes for the run, and confusion on blitzes and twists. Our OL too often looked like a Chinese Fire Drill. BA would have seen through Warhop instantly because he knows all areas of his team and he holds his Coaches responsible just as he does his players! That is why we kept coming up losing as long as Koetter refused to blame Warhop.
