Too Many Cooks In The Kitchen?

May 31st, 2019

Voices in the night. Who does Jameis listen to?

Joe wonders if America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, hears all the voices at night battling for his brain. You know, the many voices he hears during the day.

There’s golf-cart-riding Bucco Bruce Arians, there’s offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich, there’s quarterback coach Clyde Christensen and now there is consultant Tom Moore.

That’s four guys potentially pulling Jameis all sorts of different ways, maybe pulling him in different directions.

Have you heard of the phrase “too many cooks in the kitchen?”

(When it comes to Giada De Laurentiis there is only need for one cook.)

Well, it seems Arians is very much aware Jameis might have too many coaches in his head and has taken measures to try to avoid confusion for Jameis.

“I have to watch to make sure there’s not too many voices and Clyde in the room [with Leftwich and Moore],” Arians said after underwear football practice Tuesday. “I stay out purposely, and Tom just sits there and observes.”

As Joe has written before, no matter what Jameis does this year, you cannot say he isn’t being coached.

Perhaps one could say he’s being coached too much. Time will tell.

    Often it seems he does not listen to any of them….hence the anxiousness surrounding the 2019 Jameis season

  3. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    The only voice in Jameis’ head that concerns me is his own……if that is OK….he will be OK….

  4. Bucsfanman Says:

    Joe- You had me at Giada!

    Never too early to line up the excuses for the Soiled Messiah.

    Giada was kinda hot for a minute years ago….. now she’s just scary with the ginormous forehead and psycho smile.

    South Park did a good job on her awhile back.

    Joe I know it’s hard for you to believe… but I think if Jameis doesn’t pan out this year we can say with certainty it was never about the coaching. Jameis will always be only slightly more accurate than Josh Freeman in games, which is still good for 3-4 picks in big games. Think back to Koetter’s accuracy comments. I know it sucks but I think we just got a guy with a quick trigger, risky attitude, and not a lick of common sense. Bad combo.

    @Joe … “Perhaps one could say he’s being coached too much. Time will tell.” Got a feeling that just about any young QB in the NFL would give his right cojone to be in Jameis’ shoes right now. BA knows exactly what he’s doing in trying to revive Jameis’ career with the Bucs. Clyde’s a seasoned QB coach who’s worked with some of the best, and Tom Moore is a legend. The ‘youngster’ in the crowd is Byron Leftwich, and more than likely he’s in much the same situation that Jameis is … learning all he can from the masters. If Jameis fails this year, it probably won’t be because of too much coaching.

    The pic alone proves which Joe wrote this. 🙂

  9. Stonedbuc Says:

    That first comment is full cringe.

    Jameis had an EXCELLENT offensive/QB coach in Koetter …..

  11. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Byron is a brand new coach who played the game & he is “black” so that will already take precedent in Jameis’s head. But having moore, clyde, and BA, along with byron they better all be on the EXACT same page or stuff will go sideways fast

  12. mark2001 Says:

    I don’t know who Jameis should listen to. But as a typical ISU grad, and looking at this photo, I know what I’d watch…LOL.

    She can fry my bacon ANY day of the week!

    Coach Bajakian (whoever that is) was JW’s QB coach.

    Joe-BA is a good cop, bad cop, and a maestro rolled into one bad mf .Under his guidance Jameis will make sweet music to sooth our stressed ears.

  16. Eric y Says:

    Too many cooks in the kitchen is the politically correct way of saying too many chiefs and not enough Indians … tv has gone sissified

  17. Dlavid Says:

    The story was useless but the pic of Giadi made the read fantastic !

  18. The Buc Realist Says:

    Are there too many cooks in the kitchen??? or are they all staring at all the broken eggs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Intern Zach says: “Mr Realist, what do the sheep have to look forward too”????

    The Buc Realist says: ” Very high draft picks”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think that answers the question.

    In BA we trust.!
    Go Bucs!!!

    Biggest coaching staff in the NFl and the world. Wish the Glazers had spent some of that cash on quality players. But..we shall see If all of this translates into wins. I remain..cautiously always.

  21. mark2001 Says:

    Dlavid… read? You mean reading by touch, don’t you?

  22. Buc50 Says:

    @Buc Believer…thing about Giada though…she doesn’t really eat the bacon, because she nibbles on it and spits it in the trashcan.

  23. Gerald McBezos Says:

    The Glazers did spend all their cash on players, if they hadn’t we wouldn’t be up against the cap.

    Literally the only thing this franchise has succeeded at in the past 6 years is spending cash on players.

    Results were terrible because we had coaches like “Lovie’s son” and “Jon Hoke” running around.

  24. BigMacAttack Says:

    Giada has a great set and doesn’t mind showing them off. Her second greatest attribute is she can feed 6 people with 2 pieces of chicken, a tomato, onion and four pieces of pasta. She’d be great on FoodHub.
