“He Brings Stature And Credibility”

January 15th, 2019

He can see it.

If there is a better pairing than Bucco Bruce Arians and America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, a pair of FS1 talking heads hasn’t seen one.

Both Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless believe the football gods are at work since the Bucs hired Arians to be their next coach and likely save the career of Jameis.

In a recent airing of “Undisputed,” seen weekdays on FS1, both Sharpe and Bayless sang the praises of Arians and his molding of quarterbacks.

“He knows how to work with quarterbacks,” Sharpe said. “I think Jameis is equally as talented as Ben Roethlisberger.”

“I agree. I agree,” Bayless replied. “Jameis’ biggest problem is since he’s been in the league he’s thrown 58 picks. That won’t cut it.”

Bayless also added that Arians brings credibility to Bucs.

    Winston as talented as Big Ben? Really?
    Maybe Shannon was talking about with women

  2. DooshLaRue Says:

    58 picks?
    That just means he’s trying right Munch?

  3. TexBuc Says:

    If coaching was not vital to a winning program then certain coaches would not always have successful years. Coaching does matter that is why the NFL hires at least 3-4 new Head Coaches every year trying to find the “right” one.

    Not all interceptions are created equal. A QB in an offense where he is only asked to throw behind LOS and within 5 years of the LOS is not the same as asking a QB to consistently thrown 10-15 downfield and asked to pass 70-80% of the offense. Which QB is at a higher risk of throwing an interception? You have to look at the distance the ball is in thrown in the air versus yards after the catch, both will count as total passing yards for the QB.

    TexBuc … Excellent point about distance a QB is being asked to consistently throw but also irrelevant to most fans (most care about wins & losses, not yardage or average distance thrown). Drew Brees is a classic example … from 2006 through 2016 with the Saints he averaged an incredible 4,888 yards/season. These last 2 years his passing yardage is down to 4,163 yards/season but his record is a very nice 25-7 in that 2-year span. He’s been using the short passing game much more effectively IMO and has certainly had a much better running game to keep opposing defenses off-balance. And oh ya, a much-improved Saints defense. Wow, what a concept. I wonder why teams like the Rams & Patriots didn’t think of it. Oh wait, they did. We’re the ones who haven’t … yet.

    Excellent points!

    In Bucco Bruce I trust

  7. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Big Ben has a running game and a defense…..Jameis has neither.

  8. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I do not recall these guys agreeing very often. That’s a pretty stout endorsement.

  9. Doctor_berto Says:

    BrianBucs, yes as talented as big ben. He was the first overall pick due to his talent level. I know its hard to get around your hatred for him.

  10. tmaxcon Says:

    winston is hands down the most talented and important player in this crappy franchises miserable history… 42 years and only 2 legit stars selmon and sapp. simple as that… glazers will destroy Winston and eat up Arians.

  11. IStillBleedOrange Says:

    I’d say we’ve had a few more stars than just Lee Roy Selmon and Warren Sapp. Might I add Paul Gruber, Jimmie Giles, Derrick Brooks, Rhonde Barber, Mike Alstott, James Wilder, and John Lynch to that list?

  12. Anglican Says:

    Bayless opinion is about as good as a case of diarrhea – not welcome. He’s nothing but a talking Hack

  13. TrollSlayer Says:

    we need a revered run game around jameis simple as that– improve the 0-line and either get an elite RB to pair with jameis or improve the stable at RB and run a committee approach either way jameis flourishes in play action which we havent been able to do much– of course improving the defense is a big part too

  14. 813bucboi Says:

    i love that show!!!!!


  15. rrsrq Says:

    I believe it was Skip Bayless who we all jumped on and said, the Bucs are talented but he did not trust the coaches, Licht and Dirk laughed about it on “Hard Knocks”, I guess somebody had a point.

  16. gilhealy Says:

    Hey Doosh, yea, that’s exactly what it means. Let’s see, Manning 81 int’s thru 4 seasons, Elway 65, Eli 77, Luck 55. See a pattern swifty? It’s called trying to win and figuring it out along the way. Snap out of it.

  17. RODNEY J ALLEN Says:

    Tbfan u said it look at jw rookie season when Martin n Simms ran the ball well n for record look to 2016 when we had a decent defense for a bit more than half a seaso

  18. westernbuc Says:

    Big Ben is a great comparison to Jameis, physically and ability-wise, but Jameis is not “equal” to Big Ben. Which is totally fine, Big Ben has been in the league for like 14 years, he’s played a lot more football than Jameis. But Jameis isn’t anywhere near Big Ben. Maybe one day, but not today

  19. Tval Says:

    Jameis is MORE talented than Ben. Period!! I’m a fan of Ben. Lest we forget he couldn’t beat out tommy Maddox his rookie year. Lol!!
