Next Hurdle, Jameis Winston’s 12-Game Road Losing Streak

September 9th, 2019

Yes, as America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, prepares to face the Panthers on Thursday night, in the back of his mind he knows he hasn’t won a road start since 2016.

That’s 12 consecutive starts — and dozens excuses for the don’t-blame-Jameis crowd.

In addition to fixing whatever is wrong with Jameis following yesterday’s embarrassment at the Den of Depression, head coach Bucco Bruce Arians also must consider the mental baggage that inevitably comes with a 12-game losing streak of any kind.

This summer, Joe had manbeast JoeBucsFan intern Zach Seifter (who has retired to the University of Florida campus) perform exhaustive research to learn what former quarterbacks have been in the road-loser boat with Jameis — or least close to it.

Trent Dilfer lost 10 consecutive road starts with the Bucs over the 1995 and 1996 seasons. That’s not a dirty dozen like Jameis, but that’s a long run. David Klingler lost 14 straight with the Bengals from 1992 to 1994. Those aren’t QB names to be associated with proudly.

Moving into this century, David Carr lost 12 road starts in a row quarterbacking the Texans (2005-2006), and Joey Harrington racked up 13 with the Lions (2002-2003). Daunte Culpepper churned out 14 straight Ls away from Minnesota (2000-2002), and Chucky’s beloved Jake Plummer lost 10 straight on the road with the Cardinals (2000-2002).

Joe’s not a big believer in coincidences, a 12-game losing streak on the road is more than just rotten defense and a 2017 season of the regime forcing innocent Bucs fans to endure Doug Martin running for 2.9 yards per carry after he was benched and then suspended for drugs.

Hopefully, Arians and his cadre of offensive super gurus have the answer Thursday. The next road games for Jameis are in Los Angeles and New Orleans.

    It’ll be 13 come Thursday.

  2. Vincente Says:

    He’s not winning. The rest of the team might get a win but it will not be because of Jamies Winston. That’s how bad it is Joe. I don’t even want to give the kid credit for anything anymore. He’s obviously on his way out of Tampa. every coaching change, every QB change, every free agent pickup doesn’t work out. What are we doing here?

  3. Smashsquatch Says:

    Sameis Jameis

  4. Sydney Says:

    Jameis is what he is and there is no pass rush.

    We knew this going in. Is anyone surprised? 3-13.

    Take Carolina and lay the points. Easiest bet of the week. Free money.

  5. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We can win if we stop McCaffery…..plain & simple…..I would put LVD or White on McCaffery on every single play……do not let him beat us….period.

    I choose not to guess whether Jameis will be good or bad so I focus on the rest of the game plan.

  6. Marine Buc Says:

    Anyone else watch the Carolina game yesterday? McCoy did absolutely nothing and only seemed to play about half of the defensive snaps.

  7. Loyaltotheend Section 312 Says:

    Jameis is Jameis

    Leftwich will have to run it 30 times to take the ball out of Jameis’s hands

  8. knucknbuc Says:

    lmao the dont blame jameis crowd. leading cheerleader is @joe himself. its everyone else’s fault except jameis never mind jameis has shown marginal improvement from year 1 to 5 its still not his fault “americas pro bowl alternate 4 years ago human turnover jay cutler clone” can do no wrong. again @joe i ask how did DeSean do yesterday? seems he runs full speed to get under nerdy christian bible thumper ginger qbs passes if they’re in the same area code. #AllDESEANSFAULT

  9. Troy Says:

    I wish I knew what Jameis was looking at. Maybe it will take 4 weeks for Jameis to get comfortable. I don’t know. What I do know is that receivers were open that he missed, or was late throwing to. Things aren’t going to get any easier. The pressure is going to only get worse. I have a feeling we’re in for a very long season as fans.

  10. BucsBandit Says:


  11. Defense Rules Says:

    The Panthers looked fairly decent in their own loss yesterday (30-27) after a slow start. McCaffrey looked like Superman (over 200 yards rushing & receiving) … he was their entire offense IMO. Still, if our defense can corral McCaffrey, the Panthers are beatable.

    It still all comes down to the Bucs’ very expensive offense earning their money. Sunday was very simply an embarrassment considering that this offense was supposed to be a strength of this team. Jameis’ undoing has been his inconsistency, his marginal decision-making, and especially his turnovers. Whatever’s going on ‘upstairs’, he needs to fix it fast and get his head on straight. No more excuses. As the Marines, say … ‘Lead, follow, or get the he11 our of the way’.

  12. danr Says:

    imagine what prescot could do with this team.

    or cousins even.

    or bridgewater.

  13. Sarasota Garey Says:

    Winston scored 2 tds for the other team yesterday.

    Kenny Roger’s said it best

  15. NPRSageBoy Says:

    Not looking forward to Thursday in Charlotte. Panthers D + McCoy will eat America’s Turnover Machine for lunch. Not convinced #27 is for real either. As the Joe’s are fond of saying, “the sample size is way too small”.

    If this debacle continues, would rather see RG4 than JayMiss.

  16. D-Rome Says:

    Can someone, anyone, remind me why Jay-Miss is “America’s Quarterback”? He’s a bottom tier starting QB, he doesn’t move the needle nationally, he’s not a leader, and he’s not a winner.

  17. ManzielMadness Says:

    We know who he is… could come out one week and light it up… or throw 3 picks… he’s our best option for now so we have to keep rolling with him… Pretty sure BA is beginning to realize that Licht conned him…

  18. Pittsshore Says:

    I took the over’ last week, on the Vegas line associated with JW turnovers. Made a few bucks. It will be worse this week. You see, fragile minded ignorant people tend to increase their mistakes when under pressure. Last week’s performance out a lot of pressure on JW. Why not see what Euan Griffin could do? We could have won that game if we had a game manager at QB, not Apples McGoo.

  19. BUC CHEEKS Says:

    Ummm… HERE’S A THOUGHT! Start Griffin!!! What do you do with a losing ball game, CHANGE IT!!! THEY WON’T. F’n INSANITY. Let me guess, I’m insane for thinking this right. Lmfao. #ImReadyForRG4

  20. zzbuc Says:

    Of course we can win on thursday!!!! Need to stop Christian McCaffrey and Jameis need to stop turning the ball over…..First one is a good test on our 1 rounder Devin White, and second one nobody knows……..

  21. DooshLaRue Says:

    Most pro-ready

    Extremely high football knowledge

    Recruited by Stanford for his intelligence

    Spiritual leader of the team


    The Soiled Messiah must go!

  22. The Buc Realist Says:

    I am very surprised that not that many are saying how unwatchable that sloppy, undisciplined game was yesterday!!!!!!!!!!! I know the sheep are in shock, and are just getting exposed too the truth!!!!!!!!!! But that game was terrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What is the definition of “realism”????? Its when the sheep finally figure out the truth a year after “The Buc Realist” told them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who was that fool that kept saying its all coaching???????????? Nothing like sitting back and letting the sheep expose themselves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

    go bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Rob Says:

    Carolina’s gonna withdrawal interceptions and fumbles on Thursday from the human ATM (America’s turnover machine). Regressing Shameis is NOT getting 30 million a year from the Bucs after his last abortion of a season with my Bucs. See you later loser. Go destroy some other team. Go Bucs!

  24. AlteredEgo Say: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    Maybe Jamyth will become the first NFL QB to perfect the art of reading defenses by watching the Jumbotron before throwing the ball, because he is great reading defenses in the film room leading up to each Sunday’s game

  25. Chosen One Says:

    Road game is bad enough but prime time too? Might as well not even play the game. We’re all gonna be eating big fat Ls Thursday.

    I could keep going but what the hey. It took 25 years or so to finally win a Super Bowl. Really thought I would never see the day. Doubt I live long enough to see the Bucs in another one. Its a Bucs life.

  27. Sydney Says:


    You left out the Booker Reece debacle.

  28. Ben real Says:

    Rhenry who cares

  29. Ben real Says:

    Jameis sucks joe … just want to remind you

  30. Steven007 Says:

    Surprised we haven’t heard from Trollmax yet. Not really. Between “slow and stupid” VHIII having a pick 6 and his lord and savior Jameis Christ having arguably his worst day as a pro (ok, maybe not THE worst but it’s top 10) it had to be the worst Sunday ever. At least the Bucs lost so there’s that. All of that and a win and the old bigot might have had a Jameson fueled MI..

    NO it is a pattern of poor play by Jamyth going back to college

  33. rhenry Says:

    @ Ben

    Exactly Ben, nobody should. But you are certainly in here spewing your venom quite often. Its just a damn game.

  34. T REX Says:

    ndog – Bad dog. I’m gonna rub your nose in that crap of a game. One game? Try 58th. It’s not one game. Are you blind? Stupid? Slow? WHat’s your problem? Right now, you are part of the problem. ANyone that support Winston is an enemy of the Bucs. You’re probably a Panther or a Falcon or a Who Dat. No one that wants our team to win should support WInston anymore.

  35. T REX Says:

    And where’s Todd the PUNK?

  36. passthebuc Says:


  37. Bucsdelight Says:

    Great news everyone, Winston making history again. Add this to his stats: Winston became the third quarterback in the past 15 years to throw two pick-sixes in a season opener.

  38. SmoothBayRider Says:

    I still haven’t seen NDog today . Wonder what he’s up to ?

    FSU had enough sense to wash their hands of Jameis after two years….

  41. Lameis Winsnone Says:

    Joe, If you truly don’t have too much pride, you should ditch the “America’s Quarterback” Moniker as it is clearly unwarranted by all means. Or at the very least have a fan poll to have the majority decide on whether that moniker stays or goes. I think you know as well as I that it would be gone in that case. I’m guessing you have too much pride to remove it or post the poll.
    What pride? Joe likes the nickname. Joe’s used it since the 2014 college season. The nickname doesn’t change how he plays or Joe’s assessments. –Joe

  42. Lameis Winsnone Says:

    Is it just me or does it seem that one of our back ups or even a game manager QB, like Mike Glennon, could have won that game for us yesterday?

  43. Joe Says:

    Is it just me or does it seem that one of our back ups or even a game manager QB, like Mike Glennon, could have won that game for us yesterday?

    If not for Dotson’s penalties and OJ’s turnovers, maybe. Trick is, would Glennon have put the Bucs in position to score? There is a reason Glennon is a backup and on his fourth team.

  44. Tom Edrington Says:


    Thanks for taking me back to my “misguided youth” days as a Tampa Tribune Sports Writer…….the logo came before everything, designed by the late Lamar Sparkman, who crafted so many cool Buccaneers cartoons for the front page of the sports section, including the “Bucs Bomber” series, Bucs Bomber was a rickety bi-plane…..

  45. Anglican Says:

    I wonder if JW needs another uber ride with the boys to put him back on his game

  46. AlteredEgo Says: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    A Modest Proposal…
    since we can’t all agree of Jameis Winston…present, future and past, I suggest JBF open up a National Political discussion page where we can work on our play nice with each other skills ,then bring that new refined discussion ability back over to the football side of JBF….
    Kumbaya My Lord

  47. sunshineben Says:

    R henry … this is another Ben who has season tkts and I blame Licht for being bad GM but Winston has not shown to be a 1st round pick either.. Worst won loss record in the nfl for last how many years ?? >> yep the team is crappy!!

  48. unbelievable Says:

    If JW is so mentally weak that the coach has to take special care to prepare him for a road game, he should not be our starting quarterback.

    Simple as that.

    Jameis: It’s year 5– either step up, or step the fk outta the way.

  49. Gman Says:

    America’s Quarterback plays pretty lousy all over America. Why anyone would think this clown would be embraced by the country is delusional

  50. Adrnagy Says:

    We will eat a W Panthers and giants. 2-1. White was sick David and him will play lights out. I was surprise how gholston played. Very good.

  51. Barbosa Says:

    I’m trying so hard not to over react but wow that was such a terrible game from Winston. Expecting a quick turn around this week and I think his teammates will lose faith in him too if her plays like that again.

  52. Casey Morgan Says:

    Winston sucks. We may win Thursday despite him, but either way I’d use the following 10 days between games to get Griffin ready…

  53. Matthew Fifer Says:

    I was hopeful at the start after camp/pre-season but then Jameis became….Jameis. The rest of the game (while I still wanted to win), I was just hoping he would have gotten closelined by little Bosa, Buckner or Ford and went out of the game. Since we won’t get that lucky and I’m sure somehow we will resign him, I hope that he gets $0 guaranteed and will have the stipulation that every turnover he creates will cost him $1M.

    Maybe then….he will actually play better.

  54. Morgus the Magnificent Says:

    I believe we can now ALL finally agree….Winston is NOT the guy to take us to a Super Bowl. Hell, not even a division championship. 3-13 coming up.

  55. rhenry Says:

    Your welcome Tom. I remember and loved the old Bucs Bomber series. Do you remember the old Bucs Band that use sit in the stands and play to fire up the crowd? Those were good days, losing and all.

  56. rhenry Says:

    @ sunshineben

    Winston was on my list.

  57. Bucsace Says:

    I know this post is off subject, but did anybody else out there think our uniforms looked like sh** yesterday? On top of everything else!!!

  58. Just Sayin’ Says:

    Was a huge Jameis fan since the FSU Pitt game. That was horrific QB play on his part. He has no touch, balls that should have a little air under them are thrown on a rope 10 yards too long. 10 feet away from the receiver and throws a 100mph fast ball. Worst decision making. Gets so excited when ROJO made the first down it looked like he was going to head but someone, out of control. He has lost us more games than he’s won us. Joe it’s offensive that you’d suggest long suffering Bucs fans would feel anything but crushed when after a long off season of hope comes crumbling down with another horrendous one head play by Jameis. He is not the long term solution for this team, you can’t tie up that percentage of the salary cap on such instability at the most crucial position. There is nothing to lose by giving the remainder of the year to RG4. It is time to see what we’ve got but we already know what we have in Jameis, unfortunately.

  59. Bucsace Says:

    Jameis got the crab legs, and the $21 million!!!
