“Be Judicious In Making This Move To My Next Quarterback”

November 19th, 2019

Expect to see this graphic, captured on NFL Network today, over and over and over until the Bucs make a public call on the future of Jameis Winston. FOX ran a nearly identical look early in Sunday’s game.

NFL Network is all over the looming Decision Jameis coming from Bucs officials, especially since Decision Marcus already has been made.

This is what happens when your team is 3-7, your head coach is 67 and not here for a rebuild, and the starting quarterback is one of the most inconsistent QBs in NFL history (highs and lows). Team Glazer could end this nightmare for Bucs fans with a decision, but don’t hold your breath.

NFL Network dove into Decision Jameis today and called upon 71-year-old former Texans and Redskins general manager Charley Casserly to offer his take.

Casserly raved about Jameis’ arm talent and mentioned that Jameis has a share of interceptions that aren’t his fault. But Casserly still said he’d be looking to move on.

“He’s been through a lot of good coaches and they really haven’t got over the hump [with Jameis’ decision-making],” Casserly said. “I would not just fire the guy and move on to something else. However, I would look seriously in the draft for another quarterback or if the right one’s there in free agency, that’s when I’d make the move. So I’d be judicious in making this move to my next quarterback.”

To paraphase Casserly, the Bucs should tread carefully because Jameis has enough talent to make management think twice, versus benching Jameis now and going all-in on the new-quarterback train.

    The Bucs have been put in their place by their 3 big brothers… The NFCS!
    The Falcons just played the Saints and Panthers and did not allow a TD in either game…
    The Falcons will cement the Bucs in the basement for like the 9th time in 12 years.

    another 5-11 season may be unattainable by this Bucs team and much of it is do to the turnovers…
    They need to find a qb that is respectable and worthy of every player playing hard for!

  2. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    I don’t get this argument. Okay he is talented but year 6 we know the massive number of turnovers will negate any talent he may or may not have.

  3. zzbuc Says:

    You can have all the talent of the world, but if you turn the ball over so many times you will win not to many games…..Bucs history for the last 5 years.
    Is that the only reason we´ve lost that much? the answer is NO!!!
    Its a combination of several factors, but having thew wrong QB is one of the biggest!!!!
    We have no running game, no secondary, mediocre OL at the very least, we are in cap hell and with a inconsistent QB….Incosisten means highs and lows!!!!!
    Who should we point fingers?
    Pretty easy right?

  4. Syl Says:

    There is no way in hell those QB’s below Jameis should be throwing all those interceptions. Most of them have good defenses. A better than average run game, and a better than average offensive line. When over 80 pct of your offense is passes then you will get an above average interception rate. Especially with WR that are not the fastest, and they have smaller windows to throw the ball. But..I hope he leaves because this franchise sucks. Then they can move on the the next Ex QB.

  5. Bucsfanman Says:

    98 Turnovers!
    98 times the offense possessed the ball and gave it away!
    That’s 98 opportunities to score points.
    98 times to milk the clock to mitigate poor defense.

    Yeah, a QB shouldn’t have to put up 30 pts a game to overcome a bad defense. But, a defense, a BAD defense, should not be expected to overcome 98 turnovers either.
    Round and round we go!
    It’s a complementary sport.

  6. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Two consecutive regimes who have no issue tossing out the run game. That mixed with Jameis’ risk taking result in record setting interceptions.

    I like Jameis but it is beginning to dawn on me that if the Bucs are ever going to be a contender, we need to build a solid team before we count on ANY QBto save this franchise.

    We can’t afford to pay these salaries to be a 5-11 team. We need to build the lines, add a veteran in the secondary, rebuild the oline, find pass rushers, and find a dynamic running back. We can’t do this paying 30 to the QB unless the guys name is Mahomes, Rodgers, Lamar, etc… and even then, we can’t win until this defense mans up.

  7. Loyaltotheend Section 312 Says:

    Funny how no QB drafted recently is on the list other than Jameis

    Manning and Bortle aren’t starters any more and there is a lot of chatter of the Chargers moving on from Rivers

  8. Kansas95Buc Says:

    Can you ask Licht and the Glazers why we don’t have a effective O-line and a run game for 3+ years?

  9. Bruce Blahak Says:

    talent baloney…lots of people are talented and f*ck it all up, like WinSTUNNED. Arm talent he has, head talent is a definite NO. Doesn’t have the diagnosis and quick decision talent AT ALL…PLEASE END THIS 5 YEAR NIGHTMARE!!!!

  10. Tye Says:

    good point, Loyaltotheend!

  11. TampaBay55 Says:

    Yea, let’s rush to a decision (publicly) be NFLN is pressuring us to do so. Actually, you know what Joe, that would be a very Bucs thing to do.

  12. Jeffbuc Says:

    Move on we are all done except for a couple FSU fan boys. It’s never his fault any interception is blames on someone else. Players will start turning on everything and start calling him out and it will get even worse. 10 interceptions supposedly aren’t his fault. He has more not his fault interception 10 than all but 5 QBs have the whole season. He has 8 his fault interceptions that would still be the 7th most in the nfl. It’s not just the picks with me. It’s the 10 balls a game that aren’t even close when receivers are wide open by nfl standards. And he misses them by 5-7 yards. Drive killers. If we had a decent QBs who keep complete say 64% of his passes and only throw 8 interceptions all year. He would throw for 400 yards a game and we would be averaging 40 points a game

  13. BucsBandit Says:

    “The Bucs should tread carefully because Jameis has enough talent to make management think twice, versus benching Jameis now and going all-in on the new-quarterback train.”

    This makes ZERO SENSE.

    Keeping Winston around at all will delay the transition to move on to someone else. He’ll also eat up a large part of the cap.

    If they keep Winston around, and that cap hit, it’s not going to ride the bench. So they wouldn’t dare ‘challenge’ Winston’s job with another QB in waiting. We’ve already seen that movie before. They coddle and protect Winston and his fragile ego. Keeping Winston at all would be a major distraction.

    The ONLY reasonable move is to LET WINSTON GO and move on in a new direction.

  14. Anglican Says:

    Is the 98 turnovers including fumbles too?

  15. 813bucboi Says:

    lots of former QBs had talent….lol…

    JW wont be the 1st #1 overall player to bust and he wont be the last….

    time to move on….

    JW is a BUST!!!

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  16. Conte Piscateli Says:

    98 turnovers in 68 games! That’s almost 1.5 turnovers a game! That is losing football. The only reason he had so many more turnovers than everyone else is because the other teams would refuse to put a turnovers machine like that back on the field. They would have seen enough. I don’t care about potential, I want production. The only thing “American airlines baggage handler” Jameis Winston produces with any consistency is turnovers!

  17. Little Bo Peep 🤡❗️ Says:

    Let’s See 🤡❓1. A 67 Year Old Senile lMan Who Mumbles, 2. The Worst GM In Professional Sports History, And 3. A QB Who Had Major Red Flags While Playing At Florida State University = A 40 POINT AS##% WHUPING VS THE ATLANTA FALCONS SUNDAY AT THE ATL 🤡❗️Not even Ronnie “Night Train “ Lane And TJ Revies Of The Buccaneers Radio Network would be able to spin this 🤡❗️

  18. Mike Johnson Says:

    Casserly is spot on. If we make a move, Make sure its a QB we truly want. Because QB’s like Jameis end up becoming great backups and winning a superbowl.

  19. Armybucsfan Says:

    I’m going to cheer when Jameis hits his 100th turnover this Sunday against the falcons. Wooo hooooo you can do it Jameis!!!!!!!

  20. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I was called out for suggesting that the Bucs (if they plan on keeping Winston) should offer him a short-term contract (2 years) with little guaranteed money but very high incentive bonuses.
    For example, a very high bonus if he takes the Bucs to the playoffs…..(that was labeled ridiculous by one poster because the Bucs are never even in contention for the playoffs.

    Duhhh!!! That is exactly why it is a great incentive offer…..you either get to the playoffs….or you don’t pay.

  21. AllhailJPP Says:

    He needs three more years..yea, thats it.

  22. Loyaltotheend Section 312 Says:

    98 turnovers includes fumbles

    6 more games means he’s looking at least 9 more turnovers

  23. BucsBandit Says:


    Unfortunately, NFL contracts don’t work that way. There’s a limit to how much of a salary you can base on incentives; let alone what someone would accept. So keeping Winston at all would require AT LEAST a $20M/year base salary or his agents will test free agency.

    His agents aren’t about to accept a salary heavily based on making the playoffs since our Defense is so bad. So there’s no way that’s going to work.

    Either the Bucs are going to have to commit at least $20M-$25M (maybe more) to keep Winston for 2020, or they’ll need to let him go.

  24. Adrnagy Says:

    Easy to rip Jameis Winston and his NFL-high 18 INTs. But no QB has been sacked more or must overcome defense that allows more points. Also drop passes. Penalties. Since he was drafted.

  25. K2 Says:

    Pay Winston $20 million a year and penalize him $1 million per interception. He will probably owe the Bucs at the end of the year.

  26. Defense Rules Says:


    “I like Jameis but it is beginning to dawn on me that if the Bucs are ever going to be a contender, we need to build a solid team before we count on ANY QB to save this franchise.

    We can’t afford to pay these salaries to be a 5-11 team. We need to build the lines, add a veteran in the secondary, rebuild the oline, find pass rushers, and find a dynamic running back.

    B-I-N-G-O !!!!!!!

  27. Mister Negative Nancy Says:

    Time to cut ties and move on.

    Dak Prescott, Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson, Carson Wentz, Kyler Murray, Jacoby Brisett, Daniel Jones… all came out in the years after he did, and they have higher Total QBR.

    He’s had enough time. 20th best quarterback doesn’t take you to the next level in a league of 32 teams..

  28. Blue-footed booby Says:

    I’m going to keep pounding the table for Mike Glennon to be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting quarterback for the 2020 season. Mike Glennon can be signed on the cheap while giving Glennon an opportunity to be the full-fledged starting QB for the team for the entire season.

    Let’s dump Winstunned, replace Demar Dotson with either a free agent right tackle or a premium (rounds 1-3) draft pick, and if Mike Evans and/or OJ Howard demands a trade in the offseason grant their wish to stockpile for more draft picks to help fix the secondary and pass rush. Speaking of the draft, I hear LSU has a terrific stud safety in Grant Delpit who can help stabilize our secondary and make our pass defense acceptable.

    Also prioritize keeping Shaq Barrett by using the franchise tag if necessary to negotiate a long term deal to keep him in Tampa Bay. Try to sign Byron Jones in free agency even if it means paying him top tier CB dollars.


  29. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Anybody really surprised by this? If you are concerned about winning and changing the culture, moving on from Jameis unfortunately is a must. We’re spinning our wheels and running out of excuses. 12 seasons and counting.

  30. Kord Says:

    He’s only 17 away from testaverdes record, what a time to be alive…and a Bucs fan

  31. Kord Says:

    If they keep Winston In We might actually see 30ints by the turnover terminator, hopefully this one won’t be back

  35. doolnutts Says:

    It is funny because I see Bucs fans make fun of Andy Dalton left and right. He would be an instant upgrade over Winston and that is not close. What is really sad is Dalton isn’t even any good but if Dalton isn’t any good what is Winston?

    If I am the bucs I trade for Dalton, per spotrac his contract is very cheap. I would then look to draft a young QB. I think this would fill the best of both worlds with a 67-year-old coach looking to win now and also groom for our future. It is not too long ago that Carson Palmer was a total wreck with the Raiders before BA got his hands on him. There is a chance he could improve Daltons play.

    Will the Bucs make the same mistake w/Jameis Winston

  37. BucsBandit Says:


  38. Wesley Says:

    It’s time for this team to finally admit that they need to rebuild. If they don’t it will only be another 10 years of this losing crap. What’s the goal to become mediocre?

  39. Jean Lafitte Says:


    I also will add that Flacco’s worst seasons happened after he signed, at the time, the highest QB contract in the NFL pushing the team into the red with no cap space to resign a lot of those HOF’s. The same problem, as a franchise, is facing us with Winston’s contract when we are pressed against the cap already with a boatload of 1 year contracts to attend with if we do want to keep some of the talent we already have.

  40. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Very True

  41. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @ Bucsbandit


    My point is, if we want to keep Winston we should make him an offer that most other teams would not…..but a low offer nonetheless…..IMO, Jameis wants to start and he wants to stay….
    He’s worth more to the Bucs than anywhere else
    We should not offer guarantees too high…..we do that with many contracts and there is no reason Jameis should be different.
    It should be as incentive laden as possible.

  42. Richard Dickson Says:

    Even if you chalk up 20% of those turnovers as not his fault, he’s still in second with 78 turnovers.

  43. NYbucsfan Says:

    Winston is terrible!!! Look at his targets they are studs, take them away Winston has 200 INT

  44. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Alaskan has hit on the rub here….which comes first the chicken or the egg? The good team or the good QB?

    I’ve seen enough of JW’s horrible throws. He makes some great throws but if you look in the dictionary under inconsistent you’ll find a picture of JW.

    People act as if this is all on the Defense…OL…Coaches….sure SOME of it but not all. JW throws an ugly…inaccurate ball. Strong arm..little hands…too many wobblies not enough spiral.

    Too much money…let’s start trading some chips like OJ for another first round pick. Two first rounders could go a long way to fortifying our trenches.

    Meanwhile can we find somebody to evaluate talent at QB and DB? Can you say Gardner Minshew.

    Not saying he’s the next great thing but he has better numbers than JW…half dozen fewer TDs in one less game but he has 14…did you read that 14 fewer ints than JW.

    Minshew was selected in the 6th round 178th overall. Minshew is not a physical specimen…just a tad over six feet and 220.

    SIXTH round. Wilson 3rd round…there ARE players outside of the top ten picks..even at QB.

    No go ahead and bust my chops and say but the Bucs can’t even find talent at the top…I won’t argue that point.

  45. Bobby M. Says:

    The question lies in the value of Winston….I believe he will start in the NFL for the right price. He’s an upgrade to Trubisky….I feel like he lands in Washington with a “history repeats itself” feel of Doug Williams. Maybe Miami as they rebuild. I think that’s going to be his role in the NFL….a second chance guy that fills in while teams try to find “their guy”. He’ll make money….probably continue to put up stats….but nobody is going far with him unless they completely neuter him like the Ravens did with Dilfer. Winston is literally Jay Cutler 2.0….lots of stats but that’s it. There’s more to QB then arm talent and folks need to quit kidding themselves. Evans and Godwin are doing more for Winston then Winston is doing for them. Evans WILL put up a 1,000 yds with any QB in the league….he’s that good. Give Winston Seattle’s WR corp and you’ll see him struggle….Give him Oaklands WRs….he struggles. He’s not elevating lesser talent….that is certain.

  46. BrianBucs Says:

    There literally have been hundreds of QB’s drafted into the NFL with lots of arm talent that were not good or successful.
    It takes a lot more qualities than just a strong arm to be a successful NFL QB. Unfortunately Winston does not have those qualities.

  47. BucHead588 Says:

    Listen it’s not the turnovers that make us lose it was an is the Defense Jameis has this offense ranked top5 last 3 years in scoring with all those Turnovers

  48. Pete I Says:


    98 turnovers in less than 5 years.

    With 6 more games to add to his total Jameis will be far and away the best at turning the ball over for a 5 year period.

  49. Jean Lafitte Says:

    ^^^turnovers reflect on the defense …duh?

  50. BucsBandit Says:

    Imagine the FAN MUTINY if…

    Any day now the Bucs announce they have extended Winston for a 100% guaranteed, 4-Year, $135 Million contract.

    Let him go let’s just see which QB produces while getting beat to death, throwing 40+ times a game and needing to score 30 a game to win. Let’s do it, those guys are all over the league. They can be had anywhere, right guys?

  57. Deez days Says:

    I’d like to see the Bucs go after Alex Smith… redskins will release him and he will be cheap… he’s getting stronger now also… smith or dalton let’s go … a lot better than jameis under center

  58. BucsBandit Says:


    By dumping Winston we immediately save $25M-$30M/year and can sign the two best free agent corners in the entire NFL and instantly improve our Defense.

    There are many “average” QBs that could had for cheap (or drafted) that can protect the ball yet put up decent production throwing to Evans and Godwin.

    All the more reason to say goodbye to overrated Jameis.

  59. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Final Season in Tampa Bay

    • Int%: 4.4

  60. Kord Says:

    Really gonna watch the jags game cause one of those guys will be our qb next season. Should throw a lot at em for minshew, but jags will be smart, keep him ( a dude Bucs should of drafted) and let Foles walk. God willing, Winston will be a backup in Cincy by then.

  61. DB55 Says:


    You know what that means, lol……

    Chargers, Pittsburgh or NE.

    Considering billicheat loves him some TB castoffs and problem children from all over the league AND Toms back-up has 3 career attempts for 14 yards and 1 int there seems to be some opportunity there, what could Jameis do with the number 1 def in the league? Nickel and diming his way down the field.

    Pittsburgh would probably be an ever better fit with Tomlin another guy who was NOT good enough for Tampa 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. A solid def that’s young and only getting better and a run first philosophy. In a weak division with only one other competitive team.

    Chargers on the other hand, Jameis teams up with James. Jameis kills it on the westcoast and he owns arrowhead stadium. Again with a run game and solid def, good coach, I like the possibilities.

  62. SteveK Says:


    Excellent data, sir! Thanks. The comparison to Dilfer is all you need to know.

  63. Ndog Says:

    Bandit the fact that you believe that shows you have not been a Bucs fan that long as no one has ever produced an offense this productive in the history of this franchise. So if you think anyone can do this you are sadly mistaken.

  64. JimmyJack Says:

    I for one am not overly concerned about Winston right now. At least not based on the Saints game. I actually find it comical how hard people are coming down on the QB mostly based on a stat line in that game.

    You put a gunslinger like Winston in a game down 3 scores and yeah it’s got a potential to get ugly.

    My big problem is getting down 3 scores in the first place. And the QB was not a large reason why we got down 3 scores. It was the team around him…..including to a large degree the gameplanning.

    Hey when Winston is a big reason why we get way behind in games, like we seen many times before. I am the first guy to rail on him. But if the team ain’t come out to play and gets blown out & Winston throws a few picks trying to get us back into it I’m fine with it.

    Every once in a while you might win one of them games with a QB like Winston. But for the most part(especially against top tier team) your losing……I’m not overly concerned about INTs when a QB is trying to pull a win out his ass. Unsure why y’all are so fixated on this one player but to each his own I guess

    • Int%: 4.5


    Jameis Winston
    • Cmp%: 59.6%
    • Int%: 4.4

    Yeah they are really comparable as one has thrown for 3,078 yards in 10 games and the other threw for 1,619 in the 10 games he played. One has thrown for 19 TDs in his 10 games while the other threw 11. One plays with the worst defense in the NFL and the other played with the best defense in NFL that year.

    Again like with everything context matters but why let facts get in the way of your cluelessness.

  67. tgregs Says:

    I bet the only person who finds this whole debacle even funnier than I do is Greg Schiano. I hope that the Bucs re sign lame ass and continue to perptuate the poor play and losing. It’s almost as entertaining as the original Bucs but without Coach McCay’s wit. Lame ass is so bad I almost miss Freeman

  68. Ndog Says:

    Easy answer JimmyJack they have no idea about football. That’s why they just say the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. They have no clue bro.

  69. JimmyJack Says:

    And by the way…….When the door was open for us to claw our way back into that game our best freaking player ProBowler Mike Evans dropped a very simple pass. Absolutely choked.

    Then again Miller dropped a (could/should be) key first down.

    And perhaps the most critical and most impactful blunder was OJ gagging up another ball and allowing the Saints to go ahead convincingly.

    All them plays had much more negative impact and we’re much more meaningful then a last ditch INT before the half or desperation attempts in the fourth quarter when we were already getting blown out.

    Focusing on the QB after a that game is weak.

  70. TSmitty3000 Says:

    If the Bengals don’t want Andy Dalton, why should the Bucs trade for him? In short, the Bucs are screwed at QB

  71. Ndog Says:

    No you have it wrong TSmitty3000. Any QB that plays here is screwed, as this is currently a no win situation.

  72. JimmyJack Says:

    I got a bigger problem with Jensen after that freaking game. The guy prooved he can’t be trusted to snap the ball.

    Your C has to be the most trustworthy guy on the field. He does too much to help the QB. If your QB cannot trust his Center that’s a major issue to me and a red flag.

  73. JimmyJack Says:

    NDog Tampa is a no win situation because we keep firing coaching every 2 years……Yeah maybe some of em needed to go but Everytime they fire and rehire they gotta turn the roster and build it back up.

    Not to mention new messanging and new approaches from a new staff. Now all the players gotta learn and adjust to new schemes and practice techniques from scratch.

    And what do the fans want now? Blow it up. More of the same. It’s unbelievable.

  74. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    I stand by my assessment of the youngman’s talent before and after the draft.
    Nothings change. So there’s not reason to speak to me with a forked tongue.

    Those that know me on & off this board – will tell you I’m the same dude.
    I don’t flex on this keyboard – then switch up in person.

    But do you – if it makes you feel better.

  75. SteveK Says:


    You’re an awesome fan and great commenter.

  76. Ndog Says:

    I just provided facts and pointed out that you left them out to fit a narrative. Am I wrong, were you not trying to prove a point and left out data you knew existed? The place you pulled that info surely had those facts as well, why didn’t you provide those? So you are trying to trick people by lying to them. I tell the truth and provide facts without trying to trick people do you? I think we know the answer but you act above.

  77. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Thank you. You are as well bredren

  78. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Jameis Winston has had 5 years now to show that he can become a top tier NFL QB.

    Jason Licht has had 5 years to try to build a winning team around Winston.

    Neither of those things has happened.

    I have no confidence that Winston will suddenly become a top level QB…or that Licht will suddenly become a better evaluator of talent.

    Time to move on….from both!

  79. SteveK Says:


    Could you imagine if Jameis played in Dilfer’s era of football when the QB routinely got clobbered?

    Jameis throws for a ton of yards and puts up points. He also puts up a lot of turnovers, too many to overcome as proven by our back to back 5-11 seasons.

    Luv had a great post about Jameis accounting rough 1.6 TDs a game, and 1.5 turnovers. That makes a .1 TD/Turnover ratio.

    We can’t win like that. Not in today’s era, where it’s so pass friendly and the QB is protected. I will concede the pass defense stinks, but you must realize that the turnovers are a major contributor to our never ending cycle of suck.

  80. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    If you noticed I didn’t add the yards to the comparison analysis of the other Qb’s either.

    Completion & Int % percentage numbers are what they are. It’s really that simple.

    A passing percentage of 59% percent with an Interception % of 4.4 is pathetic by most standards. Especially is this new era of football. Given the rule changes have literally open an Autobahn down the middle of the field. But hey… he’s great! Right?

  81. Ndog Says:

    Um do you watch our games at all. Jameis has been sacked 10 more times in his 10 games than Dilfer did in his 10. Plus Jameis does not get the protection most QBs do he gets beat to a pulp each week but I guess to you that doesn’t happen either. And again with the TO #s when you play on a team that makes a ton of mistakes every week I love how you put all those TOs on the QB. YOU ARE RIDICULOUS plus we will just ignore what the head coach says o guess right?

  82. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Dilfer was garbage in Tampa – and despite the play of arguable the best defense of all-time; he was garbage in Baltimore. But hey he won a ring though. So good for him.

  83. Ndog Says:

    Not quite as that completely ignores what is being asked of each player. That is why you have to understand football for the stats to matter.

  84. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Half those sacks come from holding onto the ball wayyy to damn long – so what’s your point?

    Steady Long…. Steady Wrong

  85. SteveK Says:


    Very well said regarding the INT% and completion %. And the pint about the middle of the field being a free for all with the new safety rules and the rules made for today’s game.

  86. SteveK Says:

    Exactly, Luv, Jameis has one of the longest times on the league for which he holds the ball. That equates to sacks.

  87. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    So Bruce ain’t complaining that he’s holding onto the ball to long?

    Wait didn’t Koetter have the same complaint?

    Wait didn’t even Jimbo have the same damn complaint? Are you starting to see the pattern now

  88. JimmyJack Says:

    I don’t really care for the Dilfer comparison too much. He and Winston run offenses that are totally different.

    Don’t know but I would doubt Dilfer was asked to drop backs 50+ times…..maybe ever.

    The difference between the players they got catching the football isn’t much fair either. If Dilfer had to drop back and work the deep parts of the field like Winston I would guess his comp% might be closer to 40.

    Neither really had much pass protection though.

  89. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Respect Bredren

  90. Ndog Says:

    Holding the ball to let the long down field routes open up cause that is the style of offense. Again it is what is being asked of the QB in this offense. It brings me back to actually understanding the game. Our second and fifth leading pass catcher in 1999, Dilfers last year, was our running back and full back. Just a tab bit different than us this year ya think. CONTEXT

  91. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Jameis would probably sport that same 40% with the old WR/DB contact rules.

  92. Pete I Says:

    Keeping Winston is folly even if the next QB has to deal with everything Jameis has or hasn’t had. Jameis looks like he is exhausted and knows he has failed. He no longer has his old swagger and seems spent.

    At some point you can’t just keep doing the same thing simply because “No QB could succeed here.” And frankly that’s just guessing.

    We can’t be afraid of change. Or starting over because our last start over isn’t working.

    98 turnovers…awful.

  93. Ndog Says:

    I’m done, you guys will never get it. I’m simply wasting my time trying to teach you the game, I would have better luck teaching 3rd graders.

  94. Jean Lafitte Says:


    The rules are slanted toward the pass and the reason why Jameis and 75%+ of all starting QB’s today are putting up career passing yards compared to the rules Dilfer played with.

    You’re not comparing apples to apples with the rules

  95. JimmyJack Says:

    Pro QBs I would compare more closely to Winston would be Big Been, Bret Favre…….and close your eyes…….Kirk Cousins.

    Joe also had a earlier article about Phillip Rivers that I think is a good comparison.

    Though it is cool to see the Dilfer comparison since most of us closely followed his career so I get why you did that. Thanks for sharing LUV.

  96. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Lol, I’ve been watching the same offense since the late 70’s.

    Pre-Snap read – the good Quarterbacks that have played in this system.
    Get the ball out of their hands quickly; to their playmakers. The average ones don’t.

  97. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Respect Bredren

  98. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Scoring on average is up since the last CBA agreement

  99. Ndog Says:

    Yep a snap off the QBs face is his fault, a behind the back catch interception is the QBs fault, a strip sack in less than a second is the QBs fault, a ball right in the TEs hands batted up for a pick is the QBs fault, a running back running a route to deep is the QBs fault, a WR not coming back on a stop route is the QBs fault, a WR breaking off a route while the ball is being thrown is the QBs fault. Yep you got it a new QB is going to make all those mistakes by other players magically get better. How is this not crystal clear?

  100. TheDood Says:

    There’s only one man who can come out of retirement and save this team:

    Wake up and smell the turnovers!

  105. JimmyJack Says:

    NDog that’s because nobody needs teaching.

    Apparently you are unaware but there’s a lot to see in a football game. None of us see it or know it all. Acting like it’s so simple and you got it all figured out is basically just you being a phony. I am also certain that you don’t impress anyone with your little opinions over there.

    We all gonna see the game different and that why professional analysists set around arguing on TV all the time……You could stand to learn a thing or two to actually listen to others opinions rather then stay inside your own narrow mind.

    JimmyJack you don’t get it they are not giving an opinion they are saying TOs TOs TOs TOs with no context. Without context their “opinions” are worth the paper you wipe your a$$ with.

  108. July Joe Says:

    None of the QBs in the draft are anywhere near as talented as Jameis … none of the prospective free agents (other than maybe Cam, if he’s fully healthy) is anywhere near as talented as Jameis.

    Translation: Jameis will get $$$ PAID $$$$ either in Tampa or in free agency by another team.

  109. JimmyJack Says:

    Ok dude you want context go watch the Bucs report pregame show. Or go a website that writes ten page articles with Gameday clips.

    We are on a blog leaving replys. Yeah there’s some of us posters that like to make it into a conversation and write long posts but most of the commenters probably just come here to read and like to leave a quick reply and throw in their two cents.

    Context aren’t a requirement dude except for you. If they took the time to come hear and read the articles and all the comments and want to leave a reply I’m willing to bet they closely follow the team and know what they are talking about.

    You just mad cause you disagree. That’s all there is too it.

  110. JimmyJack Says:

    And your whole little rant about teaching all of us the game came right after you got done arguing with LUV…….And now your talking about context?……..LUV is one of the most detailed posters on this site that never fails to provide a ton of context in his posts.

    Call me crazy but it sure seems like you backed yourself into a corner on this one.

  111. SteveK Says:


    Whose paying Jameis big money next year?

  112. Ndog Says:

    Accept for the fact that he left out yards, TDs, # of sacks, and the defense each played with. Yeah really detailed there bud.

    Again context matters maybe your just as lost about football as he is if you think he provided detail.

  113. JimmyJack Says:

    SteveK…..What did Glennon make whenever he went to Chicago?

    I betcha Jamie’s could at least get the same payday and opportunity. Probably a bit more too based on his experience.

  114. Blue-footed booby Says:

    SteveK that would probably be the XFL … Jameis Winston will be the greatest XFL quarterback to ever play in their league! Until he gets outplayed by and loses to Landry Jones …

  115. SteveK Says:


    The pint is that Jameis and dilfer have almost identical completion and INT%. Sure their other stats are far apart, but that is interesting.

    I don’t know how we can overcome the turnovers. 1.6TD-1.5TO ratio of .1 TD/Turnovers. That keeps you in the nfc s basement.

  116. Dom>Licht Says:

    We are a 3 to 5 win team with him or without him….. why pay $30 mill a year for 5 wins. Time to blow the whole thing up.

  117. SteveK Says:


    I immediately thought Glennon and a Chicago too lol


    Lmao! Good one and that would be entertaining.

  118. Dapostman Says:

    1st pick on Howard. Meh
    2nd pick end of half. Maybe the kicker makes a long FG. Maybe not. He missed a long FG end of half in Seattle. Takes a shot to get closer. Meh.
    3rd pick returned down sideline. Not a Good pass.
    4th pick. Game Over before ball even thrown. Meh.

    Like match play in golf doesn’t matter how many strokes you lose a hole by.

  119. tickrdr Says:

    Absolutely LUV your posts and always look forward to reading more.

    Thanks for your input!

    I asked this the other night, and wonder if you have a potential QB pick for the Bucs


  120. JimmyJack Says:

    Ok Ndog…….This conversation is stupid.

    Scroll up to the first post LUV had at 4:10. He broke down career numbers of 6 separate QBs. He compiled a list of stats that would probably take my dumbass hours to do. Broke down all of the main numbers of QB efficiency and even gave us pure numbers and averages.

    He brought something unique to the table and provided a sheer ton of data for our own discussion. And he even threw in a few Dilfer comparisons.

    Are you are freaking complaining? You’re a pig bro.

  121. BucsBandit Says:


    I’ve been a huge Bucs fan since they started in 1976. I’ve been to too many games at the Big Sombrero as well as Ray Jay to count. I’ve been at some of the most historic games in Bucs history. I was also in attendance in 2003 in San Diego when we won the Super Bowl, and shed tears of joy when we won the Lombardi.

    I know this team and history very well.

    Yes, during the past 5 years the Bucs Offense has put up points and yardage that dwarf the previous eras in Tampa Bay history. But I also understand it’s a PASSING LEAGUE now and overall there is more passing and more scoring. Previous eras in the NFL were more balanced or even more run-heavy oriented for some schemes. Times have changed.

    It is also now PROVEN that Jameis WInston isn’t some sort of offensive production anomaly with this team. Ryan Fitzpatrick, with many of the same weapons and players, put up BIG yardage and TD numbers also. Some of the biggest of his career.

    For God’s Sake man… Ryan FItzpatrick threw for over *400* YARDS for 3 games in a row last year! Then weeks later agains the Redskins he threw for over *400* YARDS again!

    AND… Fitzpatrick had THREE… yes, THREE games (out of only 8 he played in) where he threw for *4* TD PASSES last year! Incredible. During those 3 games, he 12 TDs and only 3 INTs.


    Tell us all again how Jameis Winston is the ONLY QB that is capable of putting up big numbers today in the current Bucs Offense! GO AHEAD TELL US!

    C’mon, man… that’s ABSURD to think that no other QB could put up big numbers, especially since Fitzpatrick ACTUALLY DID IT… MULTIPLE TIMES… with the SAME OFFENSE. I actually think the Offense is better NOW with D-Jax gone (he was inconsistent) and Godwin starting full-time at the #2 position.

  122. JimmyJack Says:

    And I serious doubt LUV cares if you have any debate about none of the stuff that he brought to the table. That’s probably kinda the point.

    But the dude goes through all that and gives us something to genuinely think/talk about and all you gotta say is a complaint and namecalling.

    How bout you provide us with your own list that’s at least half as extensive as the one you complain about or how bout you STFU.

  123. tickrdr Says:

    @Blue -footed booby:

    As a charter member of the Mike Glennon mob, I think he would be an ideal choice for the “bridge/transition” QB for the Bucs, providing they draft a new QB in the first round next year. I believe his salary for this year was only ~ 2 million/yr. Look at the overall success rate of all the QBs drafted after JW3, and as I’ve posted many times before, how many of those teams would trade their young QB for Winston? Perhaps Trubisky from the Bears? But not Mahomes, Wentz, Goff, Watson, Darnold, Allen, Jackson, Prescott, Jones, Murray, and perhaps a few others.


  124. Adrnagy Says:

    @bucs Bambi.
    Bring back Kenyatta walker and cosey Coleman. Also while you are at it bring back Simeon rice and ronde.

    I want Jameis to stay for another couple years. And you should go cheer for the dolphins since Fitzpatrick is mvp.

  125. Adrnagy Says:

    You don’t know this team. You don’t even know football. You say “ 5 years the Bucs Offense has put up points and yardage that dwarf the previous eras in Tampa Bay history.”
    So who’s been at qb? Who’s ran #1 offense passing and top #10 several yrs ?
    Fitzpatrick ?? Jameis ! With no defense. No rb no oline.

  126. BucsBandit Says:


    Winston AND Fitzpatrick have both put up huge numbers with this Offense. Are you disputing that?

    Are you disputing the FACTS that Fitzpatrick had 4 games with over 400 YARDS passing and had 3 games with 4 TD passes?

    Fitz had no running game and the SAME O-LINE that Winston has now.

    Stop making excuses! You and Ndog act like Jameis is the only QB capable of putting up big pass yards and scoring with this team. Ryan Fitzpatrick, an inconsistent journeyman QB proved you wrong.

    We don’t need Jameis to keep putting up big production with this Offense. Many QBs would be more than capable. AND… if those QBs have fewer turnovers than Jameis, and a lower salary, it’s a WIN-WIN all the way around for this franchise.


  127. DCBucsfan Says:

    The bottomline is most of Winston’s haters aren’t because of his latest turnovers but his race and and silly background check where we all at some point have been guilty in our lives so lets not pretend and put the stats on the sideline. Typical racist Floridans!
    Nothing wrong with questioning or criticism of true fans but ITS ALREADY PROVEN HIS PLAYING STYLE IS GUNSLINGER!

  128. Elita Vita Says:

    …..if you think it can’t get worse, imagine the team without JPP and Suh next year.

  129. Adrnagy Says:

    Fitzpatrick did put up those number. But fact is. We have never had this type of offense. And yet Jameis gets credit only on negative. Brett favre the most int. Peyton in his first 5 yrs 112 int and they turn out pretty good. Dres Brees 3 or 4 most int all time. Heck Brees first 5yrs are like Jameis and what did the chargers do let him walk and he turn out pretty good most passing yard. Jameis is young with and bad team and I don’t see coaching being great.

  130. Adrnagy Says:

    Do you think Belichick will allow our cb to play like this ? Bruce allows it. Koetter allow the def smith to screw himself everygame.
    I would hire Jimbo to coach the Bucs. At least he will play Jameis to his strength. Look what mcvay do you Goff. Do you see Leftwich working to the strengths of his offense?

  131. Adrnagy Says:

    We have rb that can’t catch. Can’t block. So why do we have them ? Just cuz they can run ??
    We have cb , safeties missing tackles and assignments and yet we keep them , why … bcuz we invested a draft pick heck we suck and drafting so the problem is bigger than Jameis.

  132. SteveK Says:

    Can’t do another year of the turnovers and another lost season. We need to try something new.

  133. Bucsfanman Says:

    I’m surprised nobody mentioned “he’s only 25 years old”!!!

    Jameis Winston may not be THEE problem, but he is most certainly A problem. There is no denying this as a factual statement.

  134. Armybucsfan Says:

    For the People defending Winston because he is one of the most sacked QBs in the league there is a glaring reason for that. Winston has one of the slowest in the league with going through his progressions, his release reminds me of slugwich which is now our offensive coordinator lol. Not to mention how he stares down his receivers hahaha any decent nfl defensive back probably can’t sleep the night before playing Jameis because they are so excited that they will be gifted a pick 6 from jolly ol Saint Jameis. Lmao. If the pocket collapses Jameis needs to use his legs and not stand on the pocket of nothing is there. Instead he holds onto the ball and gets sacked, hurried and hit.

  135. ShawnG Says:

    Huge number for sure. But what I notice about that list is Melvin Gordon, Todd Gurley, Saquon Barkley, and Dalvin Cook. He’s better than half the QB’s in the league. If our butt cheeks of a GM could help him with a running game and at least an average secondary he wouldn’t have to throw 40-50 times a game. Pretty simple.

  136. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Thank you Sir.

  141. Buc96NYC Says:

    I would be ok w/ this move if the defense was good enough to win games but they’re not so why would we put a rookie in this situation when it isn’t gonna lead to wins

    So the QB doesn’t turn the ball over, well the QB also doesn’t score enough win either lol…so I hope everybody would celebrate all the low interceptions while they’re losing games still
