GPS Tracking

“What did it say?”

America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, has wheels.

Today in his first presser of the regular season (yes!), Bucs coach Bucco Bruce Arians was asked whether anything surprised him about Jameis now that underwear football, training camp and preseason schlock is over?

Initially, Arians said, no, Jameis is the guy and the quarterback he always knew and often saw. Then, Arians corrected himself.

Jameis, Arians said, may be a better athlete than he anticipated or remembered.

“Better athlete than I gave him credit for,” Arians said. “A couple of runs he took off I think he got to 19 mph on the GPS one time. I could not believe that. I thought it was false.”

So there you have it. The NextGen stats don’t lie. Jameis is also a running quarterback. And athlete.

    Well, when you can’t throw it deep, might as well have a running (game managing) qb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! only 5 more days before the bucs start climbing the mock draft boards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2019 will reveal answers to the sheep, that the “real” fans already know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Run Jameis Run

    Think about king Jonah and baby jameis

    Run Jameis Run. Please……..

    With fans like you”realist”, who needs enemies?

  5. Glazers are idiots Says:

    He’s going to be running for his life. Arians offenses always have suspect O line play. Which was a big reason he was run out of Pittsburg.

  6. Lazy Animations (wee) Says:

    When realist post the same spiel at the end of his post is it a good or had thing. Like is he saying it’ll be a good season or bad?

    A couple of runs he took off I think he got to 19 mph on the GPS one time. I could not believe that. I thought it was false

    Wait, what? Is that for real? To put that in perspective Usain Bolt runs around 23 mph in the 100 meter dash. Granted, Bolt does that for 100 meters but for Jameis to even get at that speed is remarkable. I used to be able to run 20 mph for 100 meters but I was a short, lean, wiry guy and not 6’4″ 250 lbs. That’s amazing he’s that fast.

    All 2019 is going to reveal to realist is how monumentally huge a fool he is for choosing to die on the Koetter/ Smith hill.

    Koetter is/was a good OC but I’ll suited to be a HC. Mike Smith’s tenure in Tampa is one of the worst runs ever by any coordinator. Outside of a fluke 5 game streak, he had the worst defense in the NFL here week in and week out. 2 straight years he would’ve had the worst unit in the league. And was on pace to have the worst defense in NFL history.

    Yet he defends Koetter and Smith to the bitter end.

    You could not be more accurate Bucsfan951.
    It’s fairly obvious to everyone that realist is narcissistic. The only one in the dark about it is realist.

    I’m a huge Jameis fan, but there’s no way he got to 19mph. I’d have to see that data to believe it.

    Also looking at NextGen stats they have this QB rating chart up.

    Looks like Jameis was at his worse when throwing to his right. Who generally played on the right side of the offense? D-Jax. The only area where he’s really a lot below average is throwing to the right, about 10-20 yards down field. Those are all those hitch and comeback routes that Dirk ran to death, ones where D-Jax would run lazily on his comeback. Interesting to see the stats back up when a lot of people thought was happening.

    Also Winston was deadly going right down the middle on deep passes – 30 points higher than league average. He’s slightly below league after on the deep ball throwing left and right – but is way more than offset by going down the middle. Those who say he can’t throw deep, well the stats show you’re fake news.

    Will the bucs be the worst team in the league this year ? After being lousy for years why expect this year to be different… and yet the bucs should win their 1st game so keep hope alive !!!:>)

  13. BucsFan727 Says:

    Bring on the boot legs and RPOs. Firr the Cannons.

  14. OneBuc55 Says:

    Jameis is an underrated runner; I actually wish he scrambled a tad more often…

  15. Buc1987 Says:

    Realist just sounds bitter these days…. for no reason at all.

  16. AwShbucs Says:

    One of the worst coaching errors Koetter and Bajakian ever made was telling Jameis not to scramble.

    Going all the way back to little league Jameis has been a running Qb. And he was aces at it his Rookie year. He had 6 rushing TD’s his rookie year and his signature play of that was his herculean conversion on 3rd and 19.

    How many rushing TD’s did he have his a year his next 3 seasons? 1 a year. Coincidence? I think not!

  17. FireJasonLicht Says:

    I mean you’re pretty dumb yourself. 1.) Pittsburgh had a damn good Oline when he was there with a couple pro bowlers and 2.) even if it was bad he was the OC not the head coach so the Oline wasn’t his department and 3.) if you were actually referring to Arizona he retired due to health concerns and again he had a damn good Oline there as well. Might want to check your facts before commenting. This is why Bucs fans get a bad rep around the league for being the dumbest.

  18. Glazers are idiots Says:

    @ fire jason licht. Maybe you should google it. Pittsburgh’s owners were pissed Ben was taking so many hits and Arians would change. Dumb dumb.

  19. Glazers are idiots Says:

    @ fire jason licht. 2) since when does the o line coach not report to the o coordinator? Huh dumb dumb. Hard to imagine your calling people out without knowing what your talking about. Lastly what do you think no risk it no biscuit is? I’m assuming you think it’s a dietary issue with his health concerns. Guy doesn’t even know the o line reports to the o coordinator. Sheesh.

  20. Glazers are idiots Says:

    @ fire Jason licht. 3) read the article below this one. Dumb dumb. I accept your apology.

  21. NOSBOS Says:

    When all else fails, which more often than not it won’t. He does have those wheels. Takes me back to week 1 2014. That run in Jerryworld against OSU. Thing of beauty.

  22. BucsFan727 Says:

    Happy Birthday Jamie’s.

    seriously dumb lookin picture of Jameis

    ….. as opposed to?

  25. SenileSenior Says:

    Thanks for the additional insight, D-Rome!

  26. RustyRhinos Says:

    Winston is the QB of this team as long as we WIN. We lose and he is tossed overboard. Do or die time for Jaboo. His play in his fifth season should be leaps and bounds above any mere mortal Rookie QB’s. With us just learning “So there you have it. The NextGen stats don’t lie. Jameis is also a running quarterback. And athlete.”
    Run!! Jameis!! Run!!!
    Show Me!!! Time for talk is over, Show Me what you do. Let talk about that.! Show Me!!
    Bring on the Niners!!!
    GO!! BUCS!!!!

  27. Tye Says:

    Great. that will cut done the ints and quite possibly increase his fumbles..

    though if he can tackle well, he may make a much better linebacker than he ever will a qb..

  28. Nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    Jameis was considered fast in his younger days!

  29. Asdf Says:

    D-Rome –

    Jameis topped out at that speed…Bolt topped out at 28mph…wrong to compare the average speed during a 100yd dash given you start from 0mph.

    Still surprisingly fast and he is a sneaky athlete

  30. Rod Munch Says:

    Your super fast players in the NFL can hit 21-22mph on a long play.

    Your fast guys can break 20mph.

    To break 19mph probably means Winston is one of the faster QBs in the NFL. Still not sure I actually believe it, but he’s certainly more athletic than people give him credit for. That’s also why he can make those unbelievable plays, like that long throw against the Bears where he ran around for 15 seconds, and it also can get him in trouble since 95% of QBs would be sacked and yet he can keep the play alive and will try to force the ball. Personally I’m fine with that trade-off, but most people nowadays are cowards who think the world should be nerf’d over because you might hurt yourself, and you can’t risk trying to make a good play because you might make a bad play.

  31. BucemBruski Says:

    He was the number 1 rated dual threat QB out of high school.

  32. RODNEY ALLEN Says:

    Ocala where u at in Ocala? Im in Ocala too between 40 n bonnie heath. GO BUCS

  33. Tval Says:

    Whoever said Bolt ran 23 mph was wrong. and whomever said 28/29 mph was correct. I can easily see 19 mph top speed. The Bucs would have been even MORE garbage without his athleticism. And “realist” is a koetter fan?? That explains a TON. some guys are still holding out on Mariota. 😂😂😂😂🤣
    That shows how much we should listen to some of these clowns

  34. July Joe Says:

    The “real fans” Realist talks about are the ones who wouldn’t know what a real QB looks like if they had them in the fold … Doug Williams, Steve Young and Trent Dilfer were all drafted by the Bucs, dumped before their 2nd contracts … and then won a Super Bowl with a different team.

    If the Bucs stupidly move on from Jameis, he’ll become the FOURTH QB to do such.

    Is there a DUMBER franchise historically speaking when it comes to QBs than Tampa? Nope, not even close!!!!!!
