“He’s ‘Mr. Entertainment!'”

November 30th, 2019

In the past few weeks, Joe has noted that two different national NFL columnists stated there is no better must-see TV in the NFL currently than America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston.

And now, you can add a famous broadcaster to the chorus.

Speaking on his regular weekly spot with the one and only Chris “Mad Dog” Russo, heard exclusively on SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio, former CBS, ABC and BSPN play-by-play man Brent Musburger chimed in to suggest Jameis is all about sports entertainment.

In fact, Musburger dropped a new nickname on Jameis. He referred to him as “Mr. Entertainment.”

Musburger, who is also the Raiders’ radio play-by-play man and the voice of VSiN (Vegas Sports and Information Network), which can also be heard on SiriusXM, appears on Russo’s show each Friday to cross-promote the two channels and compete with Russo in picking NFL games. (This week he appeared on Wednesday due to the holiday).

Musburger (based on VSiN’s numbers) chose the Bucs at even odds over the Jags and sang both the praises and drawbacks of Jameis.

“Alright, I’m going to go with the Bucs, pick ’em, at Jacksonville. Coach Marrone is clearly on the hot seat. The Jaguars are going nowhere. Now I know, Jameis Winston giveth and Jameis Winston taketh away. But — this Buccaneer team is averaging 28 points a game, alright?

“And Winston is averaging 7.8 yards per attempt. He’s thrown for almost 400 yards a game. He’s Mr. Entertainment! He scores points for both sides. He’s got 20 interceptions, six more than anybody else in the NFL.

“This is a feast or famine quarterback. Thanksgiving Weekend, I’m going with the feast! Give me Jameis and the Bucs — pick ’em!”

And a new nickname is born!

Musburger has a sharp eye. Consider:

* He spotted Jenn Sterger in a crowd at a Florida State football game and made her a household name (the blonde on Sterger’s right rode her coattails to become a Miami Dolphins cheerleader).

* He cited Miss Alabama as a lovely lass and launched her otherwise dormant modeling career.

* And Musburger famously fawned over Iowa State co-eds in one of his final broadcasts for the four-letter.

In short, Musberger knows talent.

    They are correct. Jameis completes a lot of balls and it does not matter what team they play for. It is very entertaining for the opposition because they really don’t know when the gift will come.

  2. Bucnjim Says:

    He’s so entertaining that fans fill the stadium every Sunday just to cheer him on. Actually the last home game they broke a record for the least amount of fans at any NFL game this year. Now that’s entertainment!

  3. Blogtalkfootball.com Says:

    Jameis is like a roller coaster of emotion. First you get mad because he is feeding the other team, then you are elated because he throws some great balls to Mike and Godwin. I never know if I need to drink my beer or take a valium.

    But I still like him. As long as the defense keeps us in the game, it makes for good games. If the secondary can play better each week from now on, we can be in each game, and lean more on the running game because we have a lead.

    Everyone is fascinated by a train wreck….at first. Then you realize that train is never going to get where you want it to go, and it’s time to switch tracks!

  5. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    It’s not just Jameis…….has anyone noticed that Buc games (although usually ugly) are decided late…..almost always….if we have a big lead….it evaporates….if we are way behind….we catch up.
    Buc Ball!!!

  6. BrianBucs Says:

    Mr. Winston is so entertaining that Ray Jay is only half full for home games. And a large number of those there are the other team’s fans.

  7. Steven007 Says:

    Mr. Entertainment is a far more accurate name than America’s quarterback so it’s got that going for it.

  8. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Musburger also picked the 76ers to sweep the Portland Trail Blazers in 1977 NBA

  9. Allbuccedup Says:

    The Jameis show tops SNL on comedy ratings. His hilarious to see what hes going to do next. Think about it ints, left handed passes, fumbles the ball when nobody touches him, 400 yard games, pick six, crab legs, uber, hell the list never stops. Mr. Entertainment ! HAHAHAHA.

  10. Defense Rules Says:

    @Musberger … “In short, Musberger knows talent.” Hmmm, does he also know that Jameis is actually passing for a tad over 300 YPG (which is great) as opposed to the 400 YPG Musberger credits him with. Hey a little exaggeration when you’re in Vegas never hurt anyone. He is right though … Jameis giveth and Jameis taketh away.

  11. whats the bucs plan 2020 Says:

    we already seen this movie for FIVE 5 FIVE years ….. please end the misery

  12. Scott Wilhelm Says:

    JW needs to go

  13. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Jameis is part of the problem, nowhere near all of it. He’s a much bigger part of the solution. Starting over with a rookie or another team’s reject, is not a solution. Reduce turnovers by bolstering the OL. Fill in any remaining holes in free agency and the draft. No other offense in franchise history has come close to the points and yardage this team has with Jameis, and he’s done behind a poor OL with very little run support. Bret Favre holds the league record for interceptions. He also has a SB ring in his two trips to the big game.

  14. BigHog Says:

    WOOO..WOOO I said move GET out the way…here comes that FAMOUS FREIGHT TRAIN 🚂 GET BEHIND YOUR QB …or jump off as we cross Gandy Bridge!!!

  15. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Another pro Jameis BS article. Makes me wanna barf. Mr. Entertainment is a constant fk’n train wreck waiting to happen. That’s why all the suspense. As a spectator it’s not a question of “if”, but “when” will Jameis screw up.

  16. Jean Lafitte Says:

    So according to Joe and his Musberger comments, Jameis should win the Miss America pageant. …smh

  17. Oneilbucs Says:

    I guess Payton Manning was trash his first 5 years also with a 120 turnovers. You guys problem is he’s a black quarterback for probably most of yall and the rest of yall haters are bought by the national media narrative about Jamies. One side has a race problem and the other side don’t know nothing about football they depends on the national media and their fake narratives. Jamies will be here next year so now you guys can go root for another team. Lol lol lol Go Bucs…..

  18. Oneilbucs Says:

    1sparky. These people don’t understand what you are talking about. But I do agree with you ain’t no quarterback is going to overcome what this kid has to overcome. Jamies has helpe his team score a lot of points a game. People try to say it’s garbage yards. But I don’t understand how can it be garbage yards when just about every game we lost since Jamies been here the defense couldn’t make a final stop or our kicker couldn’t make the kick ???? We have never scored points like Jamies has scored and these people rather have a rookie who’s going to a team with no running game and he’s going to be able to score more or the same points Jamies is scoring???? Lol lol lol that’s funny …..

  19. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Poor Jean going to be so mad when Jameis trots out there next season as a Buc. Titans have an opening for fans you know. You can go cheer on Ryan T and their riveting 28-13 losses.

  20. Terrence Says:

    Jameis is my guy if im Jason Licht and the Bucs front office I sign Jameis to a multi year deal and get him two new athletic offensive tackles in the draft who can pass protect as well as pull in the running game. Jameis leads the league in turnovers but when you driving your team down field at will who cares. If you cut the tape on and watch every game we lost we are in each of those ball games! Turnovers aint the reason we 4-7 its the young secondary who struggled earlier this year in Todd Bowles aggressive defense. We couldnt cover anyone which led to teams being able to score points! I really like our young secondary none of our guys are soft and are doing a great job of learning Coach Bowles scheme Carlton Davis, Jamel Dean, Sean Bunting, Jordan Whitehead, Mike Edwards, and Andrew Adams are all ball players.

    *There isnt a quarterback in the league more exciting to watch then famous Jameis Buc fans we are witnessing greatness.

  21. Bucnjim Says:

    I hope you Winston backers are right I really do but in the NFL there is also Salary cap issues to deal with. Part of the problem with the D is we are extremely one sided on offense and it’s not getting better. In our business the top paid guys are expected to produce results. Just like our defense was salary cap heavy in the playoff years. Funny thing is THEY DID PRODUCE! All the way to a SB win. It’s not just about talent or in our case lack of it’s about value as well.

  22. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Onielbucs…”I guess Payton Manning was trash his first 5 years also with a 120 turnovers.”

    The difference is that Peyton Manning threw for 28 more TD’s than Winston during that time, and in his 5th year Manning completed over 66% of his passes, while Winston is completing less than 60%!

    As for your ridiculous inference that those who are against Winston are because he is black, you’re an idiot! I’d take Mahomes, or Wilson, or Lamar Jackson, or Prescott or Murray in a freakin heartbeat!

  23. Oneilbucs Says:

    Jeagan. Lol lol so why do Payton get the pass but Jamies shouldn’t?? Payton Manning teams was waaaaay better than what Jamies had ever had in Tampa and that’s facts. They gave Payton a running game and he still turned over the ball. Payton had a defense that can stop the other teams from scoring Jamies had never had that as well. And maybe you are one that don’t see his skin color but I can tell you that a lot of people from this fan base do rather you believe it or not . Again you are one of them that don’t know nothing about football. Payton couldn’t win without a defense. Again the false narrative from the national media and you are one that has bought into the lie .lol lol lol

  24. Formaly Tampa 2 Says:

    Oneilbucs, Why do you have to be racist if you don’t like Winston? My 2 favorite Buc QB’s were Doug Williams & Steve Young. The Bucs dumped both
    of them and they both went on to win Super Bowls. Have you noticed the the Rookie CB’s are playing much better as the season progresses? Just like my favorite CB of all time Ronde Barber did, when he too sucked at the beginning of his rookie year. How about Warrick Dunn & Mike Alstott? My 2 favorite RB’s.
    Have you noticed that all the above favorites were both black & white? Isn’t it about time that we like or dislike a player for their play? Unlike the rookies mentioned above that are getting better, Winston has never progressed into that “elite” QB that we all expected. And after 5 years of wondering when he will throw the next int. or fumble the next ball, it is a safe bet that he will not be any different in the next few years.

    It was a fun thread to read until racism was thrown into the mix…
