“The Thing That Strikes Me Most About Jameis Is His Care For Other People”

July 27th, 2019

Buccaneers savior linebacker Devin White calls himself the “quarterback of the defense.” So Joe asked White about his impressions of the quarterback of the offense.

White had plenty to say — and it wasn’t an empty answer.

“I say the thing that strikes me most about Jameis is, like, his care for other people,” White said.

“You know, he’s always willing to go beyond for everybody else, you know, and put everybody before himself. And just how much he puts the team before himself. Because even with us being here for the quarterback school, Jameis, when I get here he be like the first one in the building and when I leave — like called him the other day to use his truck to be able to transport some TVs and stuff from the store, and I was like, ‘Yeah, where you at? You coming from your house?’ He was like, ‘No. I’m still at the facility.’ So that just lets you know how much he care and how much he wants this team to succeed. He know it starts with him because he the quarterback of the offense. So, I love seeing that approach from him, and it kind of let me know where I need to be as player, too, being the quarterback of the defense.”

Jameis does so many things right and nobody has ever questioned his work ethic and commitment since Day 1.

Sometimes that makes Joe wonder whether Jameis has nearly hit his ceiling as a QB. That’s not necessarily bad, but it’s not an inspiring thought, either.

    Nah he will be fine. I think he knows what he needs to do to stop the turnovers. What he really needs is the defense to stop someone just once!

    Jameis is young. He won’t hit his ceiling for a few more years. Drew Brees was in his early 30’s before he hit the top and now over 40 he’s still great and hardly list a step. Maturity and temperance are the key.

    @Joe … “Sometimes that makes Joe wonder whether Jameis has nearly hit his ceiling as a QB. That’s not necessarily bad, but it’s not an inspiring thought, either.”

    You never cease to amaze me Joe. Here I was thinking that you were Jameis’ biggest cheerleader, then WHAM … you float this little zinger that insinuates ‘what you see is what you’ll continue to get with Jameis’. But hey, that’s apparently OK with you Joe, although it’s not ‘inspiring’ either.

    Uhhh, for the Jameis I’ve seen for 4 years now to continue to show up on game days is not OK with me. Not OK with BA either I’ll bet. Doubt that the Glazer Boyz would be thrilled with THAT Jameis either. Jameis NEEDS to improve. His decision-making NEEDS to improve and he NEEDS to do a better job of NOT turning the ball over to our opponents. BA’s primary task was to ‘fix Jameis’. Don’t think he’d agree at all that Jameis has ‘nearly hit his ceiling’.

    Helpful hint for the Savior, don’t lift or move furniture. Don’t load trucks.

    A professional football player can afford to have people carry his stuff. Stores will deliver.

    Your job is to pay for it and point to where it goes.

    It would be nice if his play was what others notice

  6. Greg Says:

    I absolutely agree. Jameis loves every one. Even if it’s against their will! LOL.

    Yeah all QBs are a finished product at the ripe old age of 25.

    Winston is such a nice guy!!! (puke!! ….you only see what he wants you to see)

    keep in mind dude that BA has already stated most of his interceptions are the result of bad mechanics, not decision making. This is on record. We’ve already seen the kid tow it back and play smart, conservative “live for the next down” football for the last half of a season with his back up against the wall and everyone gunning for him pitchfork style. Still did not result in wins.

    Instead of worrying about “explosives”, they are actually teaching him how to approach the game from a philosophical standpoint with the reassurance that he will have a team around him.

    For the most part, his teammates genuinely all love him…

    It’s the media that’s created this public opinion that he’s some wild, sociopathic dirt bag running through Tampa like a vandal…the reality is, hes a really a very low key guy that’s guy plenty in the community…The FSU raft-raft is now almost 7 years old yet it’s talked about still like it’s current events…
