Pick-6’s, Jameis And NFL Records

December 22nd, 2019

Mark Sanchez, Ryan Tannehill, Derek Anderson and Wade Wilson? They’re all joined in the annals of NFL history this morning by Jameis Winston.

Those guys have have all thrown nine career pick-6s. Jameis threw his ninth yesterday, his sixth of the 2019 season.

That tied a single-season NFL record! Six matches Peyton Manning’s 2001 season and Rudy Bukich’s total in 1966.

Per Pro Football Reference, Jameis is now one behind Cam Newton when it comes to career touchdown throws to the wrong team. Mighty Drew Brees has thrown 27, which is tied with Peyton Manning. Matt Ryan has 16 and Brett Favre is the all-time leader with 32, three ahead of Dan Marino. Yes, Marino threw 29 pick-6s.

On the flip side, Hall of Famer Steve Young threw just four pick-6s in 143 starts. Russell Wilson has just three since entering the league as a starter in 2012.

Josh Freeman and Marcus Mariota each have six.

    When does Ryan Leaf get out of jail ?

    Oh great…here come more idiot comparisons to Manning.

    The Winston knob gobblers will now claim that Winston is somehow Peyton Manning. Idiots.

    Winston fans are not Buc fans. They are losers and do not want to win.

  3. Bojim Says:

    It’s like he does it on purpose.

  4. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Jameis was “Tennessee Ready”…..lol

  5. Bird Says:

    The pick sick stat is unacceptable
    He should have 7 but called back cause of penalty

    Go back and check
    I called that jameis would throw for 5,000 yards

    However, for bucs to succeed I confirmed he needed to be closer to 2 to 1 td to int ratio to be successful team.
    He is not anywhere close to that
    In fact he has 31 tds to 28 ints. And throw in 5 lost fumbles
    So more turnovers then tds this season

    Averaging over 2 per game. Not good enough. Arians knows it. Fans know it but hey …we are the bucs so who knows what they will do

  6. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    You know what was funny…..was before the game started yesterday…..I said to myself “Watch, he gonna throw a pick 6 on his first pass of the game”

    ………..and sure enough he did and I shocked myself (should’ve bought a lottery ticket yesterday)

    When fans are expecting his to throw INTs every single game…..well that’s just bad and sign that he’s not a Franchise QB.

    Winston is Blake Bortles 2.0 or Jay Cutler 2.0

  7. Bird Says:

    Football was much different for those other qbs
    Drew brees has been in football a long time

    Back then dbs could mall a receiver and they would not call it
    Now , a db cannot even fart on a receiver or gets a penalty

  8. Rob Says:

    ATM is NOT a franchise quarterback. Draft another quarterback and move on. ATM will forever break interception throwing records and not win playoff games. You can’t coach interceptions out of this gunslinger. 5 years is enough of a sample size to show how stubborn/stupid he is

  9. NPRSageBoy Says:

    Forget Pick-6s; After next Sundays season ender against ATL, I fully expect JayMiss to be the founding member of the 30-30 club in his 5th season.

    That’s a stat you JayMiss lovers can take to the bank.

    To pay this clown $130M would be criminal!

    Time to move on.

    Peace, out

  10. 941bucsfan Says:

    Winston will be back next year… so its a waste of time arguing with the jameis haters.

  11. D-Rome Says:

    Jameis Winston has more INTs in his career than Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers has played in at least 100 more games.

    That should give everyone some pause.

  12. D-Rome Says:

    Also, it’s worth noting that the Bucs set an NFL record with the number of wrong routes ran by wide receivers. One hundred years of NFL history! I hope the WR coach is fired because, you know, anyone else’s fault but Jay-Miss.

  13. ModHairKen Says:

    Big deal. Only thing that matters are wins. He lost the game yesterday. Period. Just like Gay lost the NYG game.

    For the Jameis must go crowd, who is better? Give us a list of AVAILABLE QBs who are better.

  14. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    So, many say you have to pay Jameis big bucks because someone else will…..I say, let’s offer him medium bucks and make someone beat the offer. We have really nothing to lose (but Jameis) and many millions to gain.
    I wouldn’t be totally opposed to keeping him, but not for big money so this is the only solution.

  15. BrianBucs Says:

    And Winston isn’t close to being done yet. Lot and lots more to come from him yet.

  16. WeeManOfScots Says:

    Funny how on Twitter, all that’s left defending JayMiss all have that stupid FSU in their bios…

  17. View from 132 Says:

    This is a meaningless stat. A pick 6 is just an INT but the defender becomes a punt returner against an inept bunch of would be tacklers.

    Why did Jones have 74 yards on 14 carries in a close game but wasn’t given more carries? Bad gameplan.

  18. whats the bucs plan 2020 Says:

    Jaymiss Winsnot isnt worth 25-30 million …. he is entertaining and he gets a… A for that but he forgot somewhere in the past 5 years that your suppose to win games …. HELLO …. PROTECT THE FOOTBALL … HELLO …. MCDUFF … HELLO…. forest GUMPS momma says stupid is as stupid does and the NFL stand for not for long ……… HELLO….. HELLO …. anybody home….. ???

  19. Jay Miss Says:

    FYI – Jones had 28 yards on 13 carries and 49 yards on 1 carry. His true average was 2 yards per carry and not worthy of giving him the ball more

  20. gotbbucs Says:

    @ Jay Miss

    Do you have any idea how many running backs that logic can apply to? Almost every one of them. Barry Sanders was the king of the negative run, and then he would bust off an incredible 49 yard run.
    So, what’s your point? The next run for any running back with some speed can be a 50 yard run, that’s why you keep giving them the damn ball, or if you’re the Bucs, you leave the ball in the hands of the guy that turns it over once every 10 times he drops back.

  21. martinii Says:

    Tampabaybucfan: I agree, we won a superbpwl with Brad Johnson, I am surprised this is even a consideration. Offer him a cheap one or two year deal with incentives addressing Int’s and turnovers and let him take it or leave it. He is not going to change after 5 years. Ever notice Brady, Breez, Rodgers, Big Ben, or Russel Wilson after an interception? Their pissed. Winston acts like he could care less. Oh it’s good to have a short memory but Winston acts like he practiced throwing it to the other team. While he has many really good qualities that other teams would like, turnovers and W/L record will create buyer beware in FA. Get him cheap or move on.

    Well, in all fairness, if a DB farts on a receiver, he probably should be penalized, depending on the severity of the fart. Excessive farting, would be the call, 15 yard penalty and an automatic first down. A shart is an automatic ejection.

  23. lambchop Says:

    Someone just might open the brinks truck for Jameis because of his upside and the fact that the QB position is like that (Mike Glennon). But, who cares? If a player isn’t working out, you have to move on. We moved on from Talib because he was immature and he turned around his career. Sometimes, you have to make those choices knowing the player may play better somewhere else. But, it won’t be in Tampa.

    I can live with the fact that Winston may be great somewhere else, but it will NEVER happen in Tampa. Seeing him go, if not this offseason, will be good for the Bucs and Winston. He needs a wake up call.

  24. mark2001 Says:

    T-Rex…please…no one would say Jameis is Payton Manning… They would say he will have a bounce back next year because he is Brett Favre, and the last time Jameis Favre had a year like this, he bounced back nicely the following year.

    How could you confuse a one year substitute probowl QB with a perennial attender, multiple All Pro and HOF QB? Got me.

    LOL.. Wow…unbelievable.

  25. Show me the TDs Says:

    Well…yeah. Jameis sucks.

  26. mark2001 Says:

    Just a few things about the passing comparisons….

    1. QB’s were hit high, low, and inbetween in those years…body slammed…with no penalties in most cases. So they were injured most of the time, to varying degrees.

    2. Receivers can’t be worked over today like they were in days gone bye. Many D’backs made their reputation almost decapitating receivers.

    3. The game is now more of a pass oriented game for those reasons…. so stats are skewed in that direction.

    Now specifically Jameis and Favre. Yes..I remember many interceptions thrown by Favre. But most of them were due to trying to make a play that wasn’t there…not due to poor accuracy in the short or long passing game. Jameis takes chances like Farve, but often times also isn’t very accurate as well. That is double trouble. What somewhat saves Jameis sometimes is the pass interference penalty, the way it is called today. Our WR’s are good enough to invoke a penalty on some of those wounded duck passes.

    I wonder if Joe is mad that the NFL HOF didn’t ask for JW’s Jersey ;(

  28. Marlow1976 Says:

    By Joe’s reasoning, if JW throws more pick sixes he will eventually be a HOF Super Bowl QB.

  29. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Lots of people here that haven’t been here in weeks. Y’all been waiting to crawl out of the woodwork.
    We win four games and finally lose one and y’all are just acting like that has been every game this year.
    What’s our record this year and what was it last year?
    Did we not just win 5 of the last 7?
    We are in a brand new system in which Jameis is setting records in, this in the least should afford him one more year to show he can improve. For me it’s safe to assume that another year in a system will have everyone playing better and more comfortable.
    Y’all just wanna start over next year and go through growing pains again. This is a volatile offensive scheme with the most volatile QB in the league. Any “conservative “ QB is still gonna be under constant duress and have to wait for long developing plays down the field that force him into bad throws.
    Anybody who has ever had to learn a legit playbook (not madden) knows that the first year is a lot of mistakes and mental errors. Through repetition and experience the team will all be more in sync next year.
    Just start all over, cuz it’s a Buc’s Life.

  30. Anonymous Says:

    Joe, if Jameis throws for 328 yards next week he will top Brady for 3rd all time in passing yards in a season.

  31. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    What’s funny is that we had to go to Johnny’s here in Orlando because Uverse quit carrying the NFL network (jerks). We were late leaving, about 10 after, and i joked to my daughter and wife that we would miss JWs first pick. Turns out we missed both first picks. Ridiculous.

  32. T REX Says:

    Brand new system? BUWAHAHAHA It’s a version of the same 4 vert he was just in.

    You excuse makers make me sick. It’s one excuse after another all the while we are losing games. Yeah, he throws for a lot of yards. Let me know when they change that to how the winners are determined.

    I loathe Winston supporters for the losers that they are in life. The acceptance of mediocrity and losing. And probably scummy fsu fans as well.
