“You Can Feel Some Hits Sometimes”

July 26th, 2019

America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, is having great fun with his new toy, so he told Joe yesterday at One Buc Palace.

Head coach Bucco Bruce Arians swears by the value of virtual reality technology, so he explained on Arizona sports radio in great detail. His Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, at age 36, got into it under Arians, and Arians says it overhaule changed his career for the better — in a big way.

That same STRIVR technology Palmer used religiously was brought in rather quickly for Jameis upon Arians’ arrival in Tampa.

The Cardinals added STRIVR in 2015, the same year the Bucs added the competitor Sidekiq. So Joe wondered whether the Bucs simply bought the wrong software four years ago, or whether their former coaching staff didn’t understand its value. Or both?

Regardless, Jameis said yesterday he is pumped up about the new technology and he’s feeling its effects — literally.

“I think it’s awesome,” Jameis said. “I think STRIVR is doing an excellent job. They now have a more accessible system where you can just, literally I had it at home with me, and it’s good. You just don’t have to be up here all day and use it. But it’s great. It’s very unique to see how the game is changing to this virtual way. You actually can be in there. You got guys flying all around you and you can feel some hits sometimes. It’s pretty cool.”

Joe sure hopes it helps. One would think it could only be positive, though Arians has called Jameis a “workaholic” multiple times, so perhaps having another 24/7 learning tool at home could be a challenge to manage. Turning off can be a good thing.

    calling Winston America’s qb is a joke (so far)…Might fans deserve honesty from our fave site !

  4. 813bucboi Says:

    i think its a combination of both…..bucs were cheap and brought the wrong system and the incompetent coaches didnt know how to use it…..

    kinda like learning how to drive a 5speed without ever seeing how its done….you may think your driving but your really tearing up the transmission….

    GO BUCS!!!!

  5. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Think this is more BS, bucs had same thing before but according to report jameis couldnt take it home is only difference? Surprised jameis personal “qb guru” doesnt own the system. 3rd preseason game will tell a good deal

  6. Morgus the Magnificent Says:

    Ben you nailed it!!! Calling this guy America’s QB is patently dishonest.

  7. BucsBandit Says:

    OH MAN…

    Now it all makes sense…

    The wrong software is why Winston has sucked.

    So glad we got that figured out.

    Hey Joe. You state “So Joe wondered whether the Bucs simply bought the wrong software four years ago“. Captain obvious here….the Bucs “bought” the wrong draft pick four years ago. I would also be curious to know who read the directions to him as it pertains to how operate the system.

    Use any and all
    Means to improve, good for Arians to embrace technology as well.

    Another Jameis article, and the first six comments from the same weekly trolls. You guys really need to get outside and discover women. It might help remove some of your salty disposition in life. Pittshore, the wrong draft pick? you think Mariotas brittle check down ass would’ve survived in koetter scheme more than 2 games? Goodness you’re dense as they come. Can’t wait till Jameis blows it up and you’re invisible from the comments sections. LIke you always are after ever good game he has.

    So u prefer check down Marcus cant stay healthy Mariota lmmfao🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️😂😂😂

  12. Pittsshore Says:

    I would have preferred to pass on a QB in this particular draft class and picked up Wentz or Goff the following year. Now CG and master can please get back into your circle jerk position…the boys are waiting.

    I wonder if there will ever be a day where we move away from using humans in football and use androids. Where nerds get rich by developing there own android to compete in place of human players. These nerd engineers can sign contracts just like a human player would. No more injuries, lawsuits, and settlements. Plus they can be repaired and used every single game unlike mortal players who can be injured and put out of football indefinitely. Would anyone pay to see that?

    Your Monday morning QB leaderboard:

    Everyone else

  15. Mike Johnson Says:

    Just give us a 50% improvement Jameis. Just 50. And you will be a better QB.

    Can’t wait to watch “America’s QB” (been reading that for 4 years now and understand it) tear up the league this season!

    Go Bucs!
