Avoiding Infamy

December 28th, 2019

Regardless of the outcome of tomorrow’s season finale at the Den of Depression, Jameis Winston will be humiliated by national media if he throws two more interceptions to become the first 30 TD/30 INT quarterback in modern NFL history.

That’s just the cold reality. The Bucs could freakin’ win 35-14 and all the yakker shows on the big networks will be talking about America’s Quarterback perfecting the art of the giveaway.

Joe is very confident Jameis knows exactly where he sits in history with his 31 touchdowns and 28 picks through 15 games this season.

And Joe is certain that reaching 30 interceptions will carry a special level of stench for a guy eager to sign a new long-term contract with the Bucs.

So will Jameis change his game to avoid getting two picks against the Falcons?


Hey, Jameis is human; it would be natural to be extra cautious with the football if, say, he threw one interception and needed just one more to reach 30.

Former Bucs QB Chris Simms said on PFT Live this week that he thought Jameis would just keep slinging the ball because that’s who he is and that’s what the Bucs offense is about. Co-host Mike Florio figures Jameis will be extra careful.

Frankly, Joe’s wondering if the Bucs coaching staff will try where they can to limit risk in order to keep Jameis from the record. Bucco Bruce Arians has worked hard to preserve Jameis’ confidence through the season, so it’s logical to think Arians will Jameis to avoid infamy.

    Stop worrying about stats and just play the game.

  2. Sport Says:

    I bet you are right Joe. They will ride his a$$. He’s earned it, what he hasn’t earned is many 35-14 victories (or other victories for that matter). If 35-14 was the outcome for his games with multiple interceptions, I could care less how many he threw. Unfortunately, there is a strong correlation of averaging multiple turnovers a game to losing.

    Facts are funny things.

    Go Bucs!

    In BA I Trust!

  3. Wesley Says:

    Please don’t accept the ball the first half.

  4. Wombat Says:

    You can do it…..

  5. Dewey Selmon Says:

    0-26, only franchise to win a SB before returning a kickoff for a TD, 5000 yard passer with 30/30. I’ll take it tomorrow as long as we finish 8-8 Go Bucs!!!

  6. Adrnagy Says:

    It seems when Bruce accepts to receives kickoff Jameis has a multi int game and starts with first throw int.

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

    Anyone want to make comparisons to Burrow?…

  8. MadMax Says:

    Trevor Lawrence – 20 TD’s, 0 INT’s in his last 6 games…..says he just takes what his defense gives him.

    Well if we dont land a QB this draft, Trevor will be there for 2021.

  9. DI Says:

    Just keep firing Jameis

  10. Rob Says:

    Good God who cares about the ATM’s feelings? You play to win. No one can coach the idiot interceptions out of the ATM. He’ll throw 2 or 3 picks and probably the same amount of touchdowns in a close game. My problem with re signing the ATM is that you cannot coach the picks out of him. No one can. Even if the ATM ever led the Bucs to a playoff birth, who on planet earth thinks the ATM would not have a meltdown 3 or 4 interception game to end our playoff run. It is what he does every couple of games throughout his career. The ATM happens to sling first and then make excuses for his idiotic decision making. A pick now and then is normal. Multiple pick sixes and multiple first pass or first drive picks kills your team. Draft Hurts in the second round , pick the best offensive tackle in the first, franchise the ATM and see what he does next year. DO NOT open up the vault for the ATM. Go Bucs!

  11. Pewter power Says:

    Lol at joe he said So will Jameis change his game to avoid getting two picks

    Exactly how do you change your game for one a single game and after 5 years in the league. Are you saying he will change his game to avoid more embarrassing talk about him or to sweeten the talking points for a contract but not to win games because otherwise he perfected the art of the interception and will probably have a bad game and lose if his aim is to avoid interception.

  12. Stevebobucsfan Says:

    I don’t really care if Jameis throws 4 interceptions. I just want to see the Bucs win and not have another losing season. I think that would also be some momentum for this team going into the off season. As for Jameis and the interceptions, he just keep making bad throw which lead to multiple interceptions. I think Arians will only put up with this next year only. I like Jameis and really hope he cut his interceptions in half.

  13. Jeffbuc Says:

    I’m watching college quarterbacks today who can come in from day one and be equal or be better than jameis. So who care anymore we can’t resign him and be the bengals stuck with a guy who is good enough to win 6-10 games a year and that’s it if you sneak in the playoffs you are one and done. Could you imagine with how amped jameis gets and how off he is in the first half in a regular season game. What joe do you think he would really do in a playoff game. It would probably be the worst first half of quarterback in the playoffs in the history of the nfl. Can you really deny that theory. I can’t because every bucs fan love jameis or hate him knows that is exactly what would happen if he ever plays in a playoff game.

  14. Jeffbuc Says:

    After 5 years I’m sick of after every season thinking about the games and thinking if jameis don’t throw this pick here or that pick there we could have won 4 more games. If the bucs could get him to play like 2nd half jameis the whole game then we would be on to something. But he has been horrible in the first half since his days in college. Except for that one great game against Pitt. Because I was thinking when fields of Ohio state opened 7-7. When can any buc fan remember when jameis started 7-7 or 9-10. It’s always 6-15 or 8-15. He never starts off on fire. You can’t name me 5 games in his career where he started off hot.

  15. Craig Says:

    The only thing that can save Jameis from creating his own level of Hell is for him to be benched. Why shouldn’t he. He is playing in his least favorite place to play, home, maybe because we boo the interceptions and they cheer them elsewhere, he feels that the team depends on his arm, he really needs an even 8-8 for his bank account.

    Sit him and lend credence to the thumb thing from last week. The only evaluation needed on this team is one for Ryan Griffin. Let him play and let Jameis stew on the bench about how he screwed up his audition season, even though we have groaned for four other years.

  16. Ndog Says:

    Wow Jeffbuc just wow. So you think a rookie can walk into this offense with no running game, a average at best defense and do better than a guy leading the number 3 scoring offense in the NFL while throwing for 5,000 yards? I mean maybe Burrow, maybe but you said quarterbacks not quarterback. Wow again just wow.

  17. Stevebobucsfan Says:

    I with you Ndog on that one. I don’t think a college QB can come in and keep the rhythm the Bucs have going without sitting and watching a while maybe not a year but maybe 7 or 8 games. My thoughts are as I ve said over and over on this site is, Arians will tag Jameis next season draft a QB in the second round develop him through next season I just don’t see Arians going through the stress that he and most Bucs fans had to go through this season with all the Jameis turnovers. As I have said I like Jameis but how long can the Bucs win with the way Jameis turn the ball over

  18. Greg Says:

    @ Rob Agree 100%. Ndog we all know JW is your guy. BA’s offense is a passing scheme. Yes the running game stinks but whoever the QB is they are going to be tossing to the best receiver duo in the league! I want JW back under a franchise tag but his first possession picks and pick sixes are indefutiable and disgusting! The defense is better than you give it credit for. JW has warts all over him but I again say give him one more year under BA.

  19. I Just Got To Get Better Says:

    Just win baby!!!!!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!!!

    Where is The Realist?????????

  20. Jeffbuc Says:

    Burrow, fields, and Lawrence yes all of the above. They are three of the most accurate QBs in ncaa history. That’s all you have to do in this offense is make an on time accurate throw. And not throw 2 picks a game. You act like it is so hard to find someone better. If you are scared of getting better in fear we can get someone worse than what’s the point. We haven’t made the playoffs since 2007 haven’t won a playoff game since 2002. And you want to keep status quo after 5 years because he leads the league in passing yards as we sit at 7-8. Meaningless stats. What would are record be if he only had 12 picks versus 28. 28 picks and people are really throwing out leading the league in passing yards. Doesn’t throw pic sixes versus 49rs we win 8-7. Doesn’t throw 4 picks against Texans 9-6. Doesn’t throw 5 against panthers 10-5 doesn’t throw two against titans 11-4 we can go year by year game by game and play this game.

  21. DBS Says:

    Fact is 7-9 or 8-8 Big deal. The only real win was over thr Rams who are a shell of what they were last year. 2 or 3 games better than last year with all the money spent and the Largest Coaching Staff. Let him go for yet another record. 30/30

  22. Jeffbuc Says:

    Ndog then I know what your response will be did you see the colts game where he won it in the seconds half. Yeah but he lost the game in the first half. If he had just been an average qb in the first half that game wouldn’t have been close. That game there is an anomaly not the norm. We got every lucky break to win that game to spite Winston and his 4 interceptions. But he threw for 456 yards. And the number 2 guy in the league in passing yards team sits at 7-8 so what does that stat even really mean except you are throwing a lot because you are losing. Do a quick google and see who has the most yards passing when trailing in a game. And then you can see who has the most passing yards when they are down 2-3 scores and there will be one constant name.

  23. Ndog Says:

    Jeffbuc what would our record be if we didn’t give up 32 to the Giants, 49 to the Seahawks or 31 to the Saints in our first game with them? Oh I know we would be sitting at 10 wins right now going for our 11th tommorow with Jameis doing absolutely nothing differently. NOTHING!!!!

    And that doesn’t even mention the lead the defense blew at Tennessee.

    But yes the reason we aren’t in the playoffs is the QB. Get a clue bro.

  24. Jeffbuc Says:

    We are really reading articles about a QB that you guys want to resign and think is the best available being the first qb in nfl history to throw 30/30. Losing record 4 of 5 years check. Lead the league in total turnovers since being drafted check. Record for pick sixes check. Most interceptions by a Qb since he came in the league check. Most interceptions in first 5 seasons to start nfl career check. First player in nfl history to throw 30 tds and 30 interceptions in a season since the nfl started check by 2:35 Sunday. Dumb bucs fans wanting to resign him check.

  25. Ndog Says:

    No response about the FACTS regarding what our record would be if we just had a top 20 defense including the three games above uh. That’s what I thought cause you got NOTHING. And yes I want to keep the guy responsible for 90% of our #3 in the league scoring offensive output yes I do. Sorry I like actually having a chance to win. Maybe the problem Jeffbuc is that you don’t understand that the team that scores the most points wins.

  26. Jeffbuc Says:

    You just answered the question for al of us ndog if are defensive is that bad. How can you resign him. Teams have to make a decision if the sign a qb to a huge contract then they have to neglect the defense and be an offensive team. If he can’t win games on a rookie contract when we can pay defensive players what’s he going to do next year when we have to let suh, nassib, Paul, go because we can’t afford them. Then you will have the exact same excuse next year. There comes a time when a QBs has to make veryone around him better. Not throw 28 picks and be a reason why we are losing. A 30 million qb better stay single digit on interceptions. Because he knows his defense is limited. And he can’t give them a short field. And to your point how many of those points given up were directly tied to his interceptions giving the defense a short field. It seems we start every game down 17-0 with jameis giving ten of those directly to them.

  27. Jeffbuc Says:

    His defense is bad so let’s sign him to more money where the defense will be worse good idea. Sounds like a great 6-10 recipe.if we spend more money on our average qb are defense will get better

  28. Jeffbuc Says:

    The saints have a great QB but how long was there defense horrible. Because there offense was making so much money there defense was horrible. They hit on a couple defensive drafts and now there defense is good. But there QBs is good so they have no receivers besides Thomas and drew brees is great enough to make there offense still be potent why they spend money on the defense. You can’t do that with an average qb. If you take away Howard Brate and one of either Godwin or Evans. Jameis would be worse. Where as brees makes the new fill ins better.

  29. Ndog Says:

    So let me get this straight you are seriously saying our QB is supposed to make our defense better? Outside of last week, on which he was HORRIBLE, he is not the reason we are losing. We have lost most of this year cause our defense sucked, and like I just pointed out if our defense was not an absolute abomination vs the Giants, Seahawks and Saints we have 10 wins right now with a chance to win 11 tomorrow. Sorry but if you think a QB putting us in a position to win 11 games is bad with this team in a brand new offense with zero running game then I’m not sure what you were expecting.

  30. Jeffbuc Says:

    28 INTERCEPTIONS that’s what I’m saying. You don’t pay a guy 30 million that throws that many picks. Most guys wouldn’t even be resigned they would lucky to get a backup job after throwing that many picks. I am saying if you pay him 8 more million than he made this year. That’s the difference of us signing Barrett and having nassib this year so you could take them off are roster and hence our defense would be worse by having less money to spend. How’s the signing average Goff to a huge contract working out for the chargers. Titans said screw Mariota who went to the playoffs twice and look they have to win and there in Sunday. They weren’t scared to find someone better and now they have the league leader in qb rating.

  31. Ndog Says:

    Dude the Saints have Alvin Kamara who is more of a weapon than either Evans or Godwin, and Thomas is the best WR in the NFL. Throw on Ted Ginn and Cook at TE and their weapons are equal to ours AND they have a much better oline.

  32. Jeffbuc Says:

    Rams not chargers

  33. BigMacAttack Says:

    He’ll throw 2 picks in the first Quarter tomorrow. He will probably have 2 more after that and still beat Atlanta.

  34. Bucsfan951 Says:

    Npuppy: do you wipe your mouth off after seeing jameis or do you just let it be? Arguing with you goes nowhere so I don’t know why ppl even try.

  35. Ndog Says:

    See you just don’t understand football, clearly. Both the Rams and Titans have leaned on their running game and once they started to open it up both those QBs couldn’t carry the offense so they sucked in the Rams case and cut bait in the Titans case. Us on the other hand lean on the passing game AND WE HAVE THE #3 SCORING OFFENSE IN THE NFL. So the guy running that offense with a average (?) oline, no running game and two great WRs is comparable to Goff and Mariota? I don’t think so.

  36. Stevebobucsfan Says:

    All and all Jameis will be back next season like it or not. With all the interceptions Jameis has thrown, the Bucs are 7 and 8 could be 8 and 8 with a win Sunday and could’ve been 10 and 6 if not for a missed FG in NY and some blown coverages in Seattle which none of that was on Jameis So how do we look at this, the glass half full or half empty

  37. Ndog Says:

    You’re correct Bucsfan951 it doesn’t get anywhere cause I am right and use FACTS to prove it. I also speak the truth like last week was Jameis’s worst game and he pretty much lost it by himself. But that’s not the norm despite what the weak-minded try to sell.

  38. Bucsfan951 Says:

    Npuppy answer me this. How many points has been scored off of buccaneers turnovers?

  39. Ndog Says:

    I going to guess a lot but how many of those points off TOs are the QBs fault?

    And again even with that all being exactly the same if the defense is just not HORRIBLE against the Giants, Seahawks and Saints we are at worst a 10 win team this year and that no one can refute.

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

    Jameis’s best season is coming up
    The offseason!

  41. Bucsfan951 Says:

    Is 119 points a lot to you? 28 ints, 10 fumbles lost. Any idea how many of those are due to Winston giving up the ball? Asking bc you speak facts (your words, not mine)

  42. Stanglassman Says:

    Jeff Buc- Your argument reminds me of the ones I’d have in grade school when kids would say that the Gators could beat the Bucs. Even great college Qbs usually aren’t good enough to play in the NFL. Not one of those kids being drafted could play as well as Jameis would next season Barrow included. Maybe one or two of this entire elite Qb class coming out will be a NFL starter five years from now. The Bucs have been trying to find someone better than Jameis for 43 years now and you think it’s easy to find someone better. Go through the history of in the draft and count how many great Qbs were drafted after the top 16 picks of the draft and after and compare the to the number who failed. You’ll probably find that it’s a less than 5% chance of finding a franchise type Qb. Less than that will have Jameis’s ceiling and fit in BA’s system. You guys act like there’s not dozens of other teams that would like to have those players too.

  43. JP_09 Says:

    If %50 of his INTs were his WRs fault he would still have 14 tying him with Ryan for 6th most in the league…. but that’s assuming no other QBs INTs can be blamed on their WRs. Well because that just wouldn’t be fair, only JW has INTs that aren’t his fault.

    Yes, he should be offered a 1-2 year contract at the right price, but that’s nowhere near 30 mil/year. Just because the Rams F’d up and gave Goff 35 plus doesn’t mean we need to repeat the same mistake. (Yes I’ll take Winston over Goff, that doesn’t mean I’d pay him more)

  44. Bucsfan951 Says:

    Want to guess who’s the top teams in turnover rates?
    1. Saints
    2. Packers
    3. Patriots

    Want to guess who’s the lowest?
    1. Bucs
    2. Giants
    3. Chargers
    4 panthers

    Wanna guess how many teams have more defensive turnovers than our Bucs defense?

    Try 4 teams. Bucs defense is top 5 at getting that turnover for their offense.

    Wanna guess what rank the Bucs are in turnover differential?

    Once again, 5th worse!!!

    So let me ask you this, I’m not defending our defense but don’t you think our problems on the defense can be that our offense is giving up the ball too much?

  45. Ndog Says:

    Well I could but I’m not going one by one but we know for a fact the four in Tennessee we’re not his fault and that is directly from the head coach. Then you have the two from OJ, the crappy route from Barber on the pick 6 vs San Fran, the fumble vs Seattle where he was hit as he was throwing, the pick vs Carolina where his arm was hit, the picks at the end of the games vs Carolina and NO when Evans just quit playing. That’s 11 right there and if I remember there are a few more where the back missed a block and caused the fumble.

  46. Stanglassman Says:

    Jameis has never had 10 fumbles lost in a season. This year it’s 5. If you go though all of his turnovers most of them were either clearly not his fault or came late in the game when he was trying to make a desperate attempt at a comeback even know the game was out of reach. That’s one thing I like about him he’s more concerned with not giving up than his year end stats. I think lots of Buc fans are just falling for the false national narrative and maybe just not watching the games.

  47. Bucsfan951 Says:

    You don’t come with facts, you come with excuses. It’s that simple. You don’t think the other qbs in this league don’t have those same problems. Or is it only Winston that has his fellow teammates that cause his ints? Come on my dude, come with facts here? I’m waiting

  48. Tye Says:

    His ‘give a flip’ doesn’t exist… He will throw the 1st pick in the 1st drive, another before half and keep throwing into traffic because he doesn’t care to know better… It’s why a player will be wide open and yet JW will throw into double and triple coverage…
    He’ll throw 3 picks, 1 TD and they lose by 7!

  49. Ndog Says:

    So let me ask you this, I’m not defending our defense but don’t you think our problems on the defense can be that our offense is giving up the ball too much?

    No I don’t cause what happened vs the Giants (2TOs them, 1 for us) yet we allowed 32 points, vs the Saints (1TO them, 0 for us) yet we allowed 31 points, vs Seattle (1TO them, 1 TO us) yet we allowed 49 points. So what the excuse those games? Not to mention the games the offense won by themselves vs the Rams and Cardinals. Bottom line we have lost one game this year when the defense played well and that was last week.

  50. Stanglassman Says:

    Maybe it’s all the stats nowadays.
    It seems like people rely too much on them for information and forget what they watched over the last 16 weeks.
    Our secondary got torched game after game the first 12 weeks. It didn’t seem to matter how many points the offense put up the defense gave away the game in the end.

  51. Ndog Says:


    This ⬆️ guy gets it. Jameis cares more about winning than stats.

  52. Bucsfan951 Says:

    As soon as someone drops hard facts on you, you turtle up and start blaming other players.

    Fact: 2-pick 6’s in the niner game lost it for the Bucs.
    Carolina: 5 turnovers. You’re gonna tell me that isn’t a problem?
    Titans: 2 ints 14 points off of turnovers (both Winston)
    Saints: 4 ints. Once again, you can’t tell me that isn’t a problem?
    Texans: the only game you blame Winston.

    Once again, yes, the defense sucked and still is suspect. But for you to not put any blame on Winston and blame everyone from the receivers to the rbs to the kicker to the defense to the te’s to the o line… it gets old hearing that same ish!

  53. JP_09 Says:

    Here’s another fact, there’s only 3 QBs with a winning record who have 10+ INTs this season. Garoppolo, Watson and Goff

    If 11 INTs were truly someone else’s fault he would still have 17 putting him at 3rd most. Again that’s going with the notion that no other QB has WRs who run bad routes, drop balls, don’t pay attention etc….

  54. Stanglassman Says:

    Yes other team have that problem and if other teams threw the ball 50 times a game and as far down the field as we do it would probably happen more. It’s not an excuse it just the law of averages.

    Sorry to butt in NDog doesn’t need my help.

  55. JP_09 Says:

    That would only make sense if Winstons INTs were on passes down field, but when %85 of them are on routes shorter than 15 yards well that argument doesn’t hold up very well

  56. Ndog Says:

    No I don’t think I KNOW that other QBs don’t have to deal with no running game, and entire secondary made up of 1st and 2nd year players a brand new offense and a oline that is up and down every game. Oh and a rookie kicker that cost them a game on a chip shot miss.

  57. Stanglassman Says:

    A typical game this year is Jameis will be playing well and have one or less turnovers midway through the 4th quarter. The team will be down two or more scores with less than 5 minutes left and Jameis will turn the ball over in the do or die situation. The people typically who didn’t watch the game will think it because he had the picks at the end and really it was just Jameis going out swinging stats be dammed.

    As soon as someone drops hard facts on you, you turtle up and start blaming other players.

    Fact: 2-pick 6’s in the niner game lost it for the Bucs.

    (The first one was on Barber so there that, which I said above.)

    Carolina: 5 turnovers. You’re gonna tell me that isn’t a problem?

    (First pick Evans didn’t come back to the ball.
    Second one his arm was hit as he was throwing.
    The last one Evans just quit on the route.)

    Titans: 2 ints 14 points off of turnovers (both Winston)

    (None on Jameis per the head coach but you know better right?)

    Saints: 4 ints. Once again, you can’t tell me that isn’t a problem?

    (First pick off OJ hands behind the back.
    Last one Evans quit again thinking the play was dead.)

    Texans: the only game you blame Winston.

    (This game he sucked plain and simple.)

    (See I state FACTS and back it up you know with like what coaches say and stuff. I know crazy right.

    Good night little one I’m tired of schooling you.)

  59. Bucsfan951 Says:

    No stanglass that’s not true. Winston has had 9 games with multiple ints and not including fumbles. Plz tell me when his ints came on the last drive when it’s only his second turnover. Plz tell me exact games.

  60. Stanglassman Says:

    JP-09- I agree it has more to do with the number of passes than it has to do with the distance. I’ve complained since Jameis’s college days he loses the MLB too often. Most of his bad picks come from the one position. I predict next season will be the year he finally cleans that up. None of us are saying he is perfect just that it would be a bad idea to give up on him now.

  61. Bucsfan951 Says:

    Ok Npuppy. This is why someone shouldn’t argue with you. Once someone starts pushing back with opinions and wait for it, facts, you go back to the blame game. That’s fine. 30 tds doesn’t do much when you turn the back over 38 times and the Bucs record will prove that!

    And “ Good night little one I’m tired of schooling you.)” ok bud. You’re a keyboard warrior! Go to bed thinking you schooled me.

  62. Stanglassman Says:

    He’s thrown 10 Ints in the 4th quarter and only 4 Ints when the Bucs were ahead.

  63. Bucsfan951 Says:

    Stanglass: yes I get that he’s had 10 ints in the fourth quarter. Like you said before, how many of those were when “one or less turnovers midway through the 4th quarter. The team will be down two or more scores with less than 5 minutes left and Jameis will turn the ball over in the do or die situation.”

    How many of those ints were in that situation? You must have those numbers since you’ve watched every game and quoted it.

  64. Adrnagy Says:

    I’m looking forward to this years draft. First time in years we probably won’t pick a cb/safety.
    You’ll have to be blind not to see bucs didn’t have a defense. Jameis fault is to throw and win but his coaches knew that. Only chance to win is to throw it.

  65. Bucsfan951 Says:

    What if I told you and your butt buddy Npuppy that 22 of winstons ints came when they were in their own end of the field. Let me dumb it down for you guys… pretty much already in fg range. 22 times the other team got to start off in OUR OWN END OF THE FIELD!!! Now I know this doesn’t matter to true Winston jock riders like yourself and Npuppy since you fellas “watch every single game and I don’t!”

    What if I told you that 15 of his ints were in the first half?

    4 ints within the last 2 minutes of a half?

    You guys talking about gunslinging bc “Bucs are always behind.” Well no ish they’re always behind. Winston tosses ints in the first drive like it’s nobody’s business. Oh wait, that’s someone’s else’s fault. In fact, he has just as many ints in the first quarter as he does in the 4th quarter. You call it gunslinging in the fourth since he’s down. I call it desperation bc he’s put his team down.


  66. Bucsfan951 Says:

    Or do you want to use the NPUPPY defense and blame everyone else? That’s perfectly fine if you want to use that excuse… a lot of weak minded individuals like Npuppy use excuses like that when they screw up. I unfortunately have friends in life that are screw ups like ol pup and blame everyone for their misfortune.

    if.. if.. if.. if.
    If a squirrel had any nuts,he wouldn’t be out looking for more.
    Facts, the only fact that counts to me, is wins, not statistics.
    Bu, bu, bu, …….if..if..if

    Winning cures all. I honestly couldn’t care less about how many turnovers he has as long as they win. However, it is sickening to see him turn it over again and again in close games. His decision making is very questionable. In that last interception, Howard was the better option and was in his line of sight.

    Favre threw picks, but he was a winner. If Winston had more wins, people wouldn’t focus on the turnovers, they would be talking TDs, yards and wins. The terrible defenses he has had should have made him more careful with the ball, not less.

    Burrow is going to the Cincinnati Bengals!

    Growing up across the Ohio river from Cincy with all my cousins still Bengal fans I couldn’t be happier.

    Burrow is the best prospect I’ve seen in awhile. He is also a smart, class act.

    If you saw his Heisman speech where he referenced the hunger in his former home town of Athens Ohio…a suburb of Cincinnati to the east in tough SE Ohio. The food bank there raised a half million based on Burrows remarks. Their annual budget is normally 80,000 instead of 500,000. This will help Burrow’s hungriest neighbors.

    He is a class act with talent and he’s a local. This draft will be a home run for the Bengals!!!

    Well @Jeffbuc and @NDog win the award for most posts on a single thread.

    However @Greg wins for the word Indefutiable LMAO.

    I’m sure it was a typo but damn. It underlines it for me.

    It should definitely become the word to describe Winston’s picks from now on though.

  73. bucnole Says:

    Dont change anything – you can’t play scared.
    Just do what you do and hopefully its enough to get the win.

  74. Sports Guru Says:

    Hey Jamies police! Like it or not he’s your quarterback. So stop pulling up the carpet and wasting your tears. You wanna complain about something? Complain about the millions of people who are starving all over the world. Not about a quarterback who just wants to win football games more than you realize. So support your quarterback and support your team. I am the sports guru and I approve this gosh damn message.

  75. orlbucfan Says:

    Jameis either a) needs to knock off the interceptions and/or b) demand QB running plays drawn up so he’s not throwing 150 passes every game. He can run the football. Why hasn’t THAT been considered by BA??

  76. Kenny Says:

    I hope he hits 30. Why not? It’s the ultimate Jameis stat, and he would be in history… It would be the defining moment of his career. He will live forever with that stat… And all young gun slingers for the rest of NFL history will be measured against him.

    If I was Jameis, I would do it purposely. It would have 0 negative effect on his career. Everything has already been decided.

    Go get yourself some history son.

    Bad draft pick right off the bat.

    This organization deserves the stench attached to a 30-30 QB.

    Add this to the humiliation of wasting a #1 overall pick on Bo Jackson.

    What a wretched organization.

  78. Pewter power Says:

    Anyone else heard of joe burrow before his senior season? Nope didnt think so. Riding the one year bandwagon, he didnt do much of anything in year 1 at LSU and even less of nothing at Ohio state. Someone drafted later will be a quarterback gem.

    Draft somebody high just so Winston knows he has to cut down on the turnovers to get the money he wants. Good rookie year, good contract year kinda seems like doug martin type production to me. Dont let it happen twice licht

  79. lambchop Says:

    I doubt Jameis is focused on this record. He probably wants to win and give himself more leverage for a new contract. If he’s worried about it, he will DEFINITELY have a terrible game. If he’s not, he has a chance to play well against Atl as long as he doesn’t stare his receivers down.

  80. T REX Says:

    The Winston knob gobblers are out in full force today! Protect their idol at all costs. Lie. Create false narratives. For a LOSER.

    ndog is a loser so no doubt he loves him some Winston. In 5 years we’ve won nothing but somehow these losers want to keep losing. Great idea!

    Winston is garbage. He’ll never win anything of import. The day publix took his façade down was the day he should’ve been traded.

    No player should divide the fan base like this. Didn’t we just have a game where it was the lowest turnout in 23 years? And you want to bring back this POS? RJS will be EMPTY. No one likes a loser.
