Perriman’s Money Catch

January 1st, 2020

Made coin with catch

You know, in the freak out in the wake of Mr. Entertainment, America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, tossing a pick-six to lose the game on Sunday, a sick play has all but been forgotten.

In the final seconds of the first half, Jameis dropped back, got flushed out of the pocket to his right and tossed an absolute dime to the far end of the right sideline where Breshad Perriman made a crazy catch to give the Bucs the lead at halftime.

Watching that play, Joe immediately thought of the Joe Montana-to-Dwight Clark catch in the 1981 NFC title game. Joe was a kid watching that live and To. This. Day. thought Montana was throwing the ball away. And then out of nowhere, Clark flies into the screen and skies and hauls in a touchdown.

That’s what that play reminded Joe of. It was a perfect throw by Jameis and an even better catch by Perriman.

After the game, Perriman was asked if he was worried about getting his feet inbounds. No, he said, he was worried about catching the ball first. If he didn’t catch it, wouldn’t matter where his feet landed

Joe brought this flashback up to columnist and the internationally popular star of the “Ira Kaufman Podcast,” Uncle Ira.

Ira was at the Clark Catch game covering it live for UPI and actually told Joe he thought Perriman’s catch was better than Clark’s. Yes, really.

The throw? Jameis’ may have been better than Montana’s. Go watch the clips below. Montana was fading backwards at the 14. Jameis was fading back avoiding the rush on the 36. Montana was closer to the sideline when he turned the ball loose.

Anyway, Joe believes that catch by Perriman will make him a lot of green. Joe fears it may be for another team.

Let’s cross our fingers Perriman still wears those ugly Bucs uniforms this fall.

    Jw always makes exciting plays like that

    Perriman not so much. Another boom or bust player

    its because of the interceptions. It’s all about the interceptions. Everything is about the interceptions. Pick 6 different flavors from Apple to Cherry flavored turnovers JW is the Baker in the Cleveland and all fans can enjoy

  2. MadMax Says:

    Pretty sure that was just a lucky throw….remember JW is nearsighted and cant read the scoreboard….i think he was throwing it away…but then Perriman said nope and went for it. Great haul by him and i hope we bring him back.

  3. Coburn Says:

    Looked more like a prayer than a perfect pass. Just throw at back of end zone and if get gets it great otherwise out if bounds. Not hard to throw it at a point at back of end zone

  4. Wesley Says:

    Got very lucky there.

  5. WestChap Says:

    I’ve seen so many of those “heaves” result in bone-headed interceptions over the last 5 years. Great job by Perriman to go get it. JW is very lucky to play with some monster WRs who can go up and get the jump balls he so often throws.

  6. JimmyJack Says:

    The best thing about Perriman surging is that players across the league will take notice. He is going to get paid and so is Shaq. Potential free agents are going to see what the Bucs did for their careers and will want to come here to make a name for themselfs……That’s a big deal!

    Gone are the days where players just wanna come here for money. Now they are gonna wanna come here to proove there worth and will give us max effort.

    As far as the high dollar free agents we need they are already in house. Shaq, JPP, Suh.

    7-9 don’t look pretty but the Bucs are really in a great place right now. Consistent QB play gets us to the playoffs. Add in a good draft class and might be looking at a division title and a Top NFC team.

  7. JGhoti86 Says:

    Reminded me much more of Brett Favre’s TD pass to Greg Lewis in the final seconds when he played for the Minnesota Vikings.

  8. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Montana’s pass was a high ten yard pass that Clark skied for on the run.

    Jameis’s was more of a thirty yard Hail Mary that Perriman leaped in place in front of the end line.

    Nonetheless it was a beautiful play

  9. Bird Says:

    Mr entertainment
    Mr excitement

    You guys really look terrible . I mean americas qb is so funny cause everyone outside of tampa says Jameis who . And most in tampa say jameis is poo
    Just saying one more time .
    Logical joe and ira letting this go to 💩

  10. Adrnagy Says:

    Great play period. From both QB and WR.

    You knuckle heads , you still with consistent QB play will take us to playoff ?

    Stop Bucs beating Bucs as a whole will take us to the playoffs ….

  11. Brandon Says:

    For the Evans and Godwin made Winston crowd, there’s the sudden development and dominance of Breshard Perriman, who is no longer viewed as a #3, but a legit #1. He went from settling for $5 mil to now easily commanding $10+ mil on the open market. We also have Adam Humphries, who raked in $8 mil for Tennessee but didn’t have numbers that came close to it.

    Dumbest comment of the New Year.

    “Not hard to throw it at a point at back of end zone”

    Not hard to throw? That ball traveled 46 yards plus from a QB avoiding the rush, fading back, while on the run… and it traveled the exact distance it needed to do the receiver to have a shot at it but also not go out of bounds. Not hard? STFU.

    “Not hard to throw? STFU.”



  14. Ndog Says:

    See these comments are a prime example why I post. When Jameis throws a pick regardless of what actually happened it’s his fault. When he makes a play like this it’s luck. You guys have zero creditability.

  15. BucsFIRE Says:

    I agree, Ndog. And the lazer that split the safeties was just as good. Perfect throw that few can make.

  16. BucFanDuh Says:

    No Joe… No… way off! The similarities ended when he threw the ball. Dwight Clark was open in the back of the endzone, and was the obvious target for a Super Bowl game winning catch. Jameis heaved the ball into double coverage (it definitely looked pretty tho) and Perriman made an incredible TD reception. I’m not taking away from the play, it was the highlight of a game that ended the season horribly… all I’m saying, Joe……… How did you not pick the “catch” from Jerry Maguire!?! Rod Tidwells catch that basically guaranteed him and Tom Cruise a paycheck the following year! Try harder Joe..

  17. Mort Says:

    Coburn – that’s an absolutely idiotic comment. The throw was special. The catch was incredible.

  18. JWAUSA Says:

    That really was an amazing catch and good throw under the pressure Winston was facing….

  19. SteveK Says:

    This was an awesome throw and a slightly better catch. Wowed all the way around.

    This along with Winston’s run a couple of years ago against the Falcons are my fav plays.

    But the turnovers are burnt in my memory.

    35 turnovers this year

    33 TDs

    More turnovers than touchdowns. Can’t win like that. Not when the bad outweighs the good.

  20. Lamarcus Says:

    Jw did one earlier against 49ers that was called back. Just as exciting

  21. Buc1987 Says:

    Coburn….sigh …

    Bucs fans!

    Go Bucs! (where I have no idea)

  22. Ndog Says:

    Also maybe it’s just me but doesynt it seem that the local media is taking great pleasure in the thought of Jameis being gone? I mean have your opinion and all, but what did he ever do to them to deserve they way they are acting. It’s like full celebration mode and nothing has he been determined yet. These folks are extremely classless but then again we have known that for awhile so I should not be surprised.

  23. Im tired and 87 is right Says:

    Ndog in today’s society people seem to get off on other folks failures in life. Almost as if it makes them feel better about theirs. Truly sad that this is where the world is heading. Time to change the way we treat others and start being nice to one another.

  24. SB Says:

    STUPID STUPID THROW. He just got lucky like he does A LOT!
    I mean Jeeesh. How many times have you seen him force the ball into Triple Coverage sometimes they get picked sometimes not.
    That throw was LOW LOW %. It’s just how he is wired.

  25. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    Daily reminder that to make the playoffs you have to win the turnover battle. You cannot CANNOT win the turnover battle with this QB I was a supporter til this year it’s year 5 I have seen enough. You can never win the turnover battle with this QB.

    Ndog you do realize with NFL QBs not all turnovers are their fault correct?

    It’s just ours loves to cough it up to the other team much more then other players and as of now any other starter in the NFL. like okay 6 weren’t his fault he still leads the NFL in interceptions.

  26. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    Anyway JoeJameisfan will continue to shill for his guy Mr Entertainment america’s pro bowler and groper that the FSU goon squad covered up for in college (it’s like the bad karma from winston is affecting this team) no matter what happens nothing will ever be his fault entirely.

  27. BucFanDuh Says:

    If you are going to combine interceptions and fumbles, then compare them Touchdowns… dont forget to add the rushing TDs to the TD stat. 34 Touchdowns!

    Nitpicking… but the bucs won 7 games with that. Saying “you cant win like that” would have put the bucs at 0-16 this season. The more accurate statement is, “its difficult to win like that.” Here some examples.
    Its difficult to win a game when you kicker misses the 38 yard game winning field goal.
    Its difficult to win consistently, when you have one of the worst ranked pass defenses for half the year.
    Its difficult to win a game when your kicker misses all 3 field goals, resulting in OT…
    Its absolutely difficult to win with a qb who leads the league in INTs, sacks, and offensive holding calls, and dropped passes resulting in INTs, and an ineffective run game, during the first game in a new offense.. but it is proven possible 7 times.. which is 2 more wins than last year!

  28. SB Says:

    Also on the ‘needs’ category for the Bucs, I have been looking at Many Mocks and have yet to see a RB in the first round. That bodes well for finding a Really good RB in the later rounds. WR and RB seem to be Deep in this draft. WR especially but I don’t think we will take one

  29. JimmyJack Says:

    NDog always remember that most of local media are not Tampa Bay fans. They don’t care about what we care about.

  30. SB Says:

    Just found one draft where Etienne goes at 29 as the only RB in the first. Ergo we will prolly pick up RB in rd. 2. Hopefully Epenesa in Rd 1 and a dynamic RB in rd 2. Or maybe OL in rd. 2 and still a quality RB in 3

  31. Dom>Licht Says:

    Perriman is gone we can’t afford him. Will have to break the bank to keep Shaq his price just doubled winning Def player year.

  32. SteveK Says:


    Thanks for correcting me. Still, more turnovers than TDs. That’s unacceptable and not a recipe for winning a championship, much less making the playoffs.

  33. SteveK Says:

    When you have a QB that turns it over more than there are touch downs, then everyone else on the team has to be that much better with less margin for error. You can’t win like that and go to the playoffs.

  34. MadMax Says:

    Man, this Minnesota/Auburn game is good!!! Min’s O line is holding up well against one of the best D lines in college. Might have to research some of those guys, especially the ones containing top 10 pick Derrick Brown.

  35. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Outside the Box:

    Draft – WR Tee Higgins

    -Mike Evans
    -Chris Godwin
    -Tee Higgins

    Not saying that I would.
    But there’s some pretty good offensive talent in the 1st round.

  36. adam from ny Says:

    i hate to say it, but dump one of our top 2 tight ends…pay perriman and go heavy with 3 wide receivers, and less pressure to get stats up for tight ends in this offense…

    i said it before and will say it again…

    with theses 3 – evans, godwin and perriman…we can have three 1,000 yard receivers…sounds a little crazy – but it’s fuggin’ true

  37. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Happy New Years Family!

  38. adam from ny Says:

    seems perriman was lacking confidence and having trouble hitting his stride or getting in his zone…or getting his flow…

    well he’s got it now…and looks like a legit #1…

    sign him and worry about godwin next year imho…put godwin on the back burners because he is under contract, and it’s a year to year league

  39. adam from ny Says:

    and we have legit 4 and 5’s in watson and scottie…

    and the kid who took the snap instead of jameis last week, and ran with it, he’s gonna be our version of taysom hill…

    bruce thinks he can dethrone the saints next year…

    it might take 2 seasons for that

  40. MadMax Says:

    Happy new year LUV….Cant waste a 1st rounder on a WR when we need a QB, but yeah, he’s awesome

    Take a look at TJ Vasher, texas tech….6’6 and makes some hella catches….maybe in the 4th or 5th. Lemme know what you think.

    Also rb Patrick Taylor out of memphis, a poor mans Derek Henry…another 4th or 5th.

    Theres so many prospects that if we dont go QB or Delpit at 14 then just trade down for more picks.

  41. Buczilla Says:

    Awesome throw and catch. Perriman has earned a new contract, but I doubt that we’ll be able to afford him. All of Jameis’s brilliance is mitigated by his sheer buffoonery at times. If he gets that cleaned up, we’ll have something special. Lol, I don’t think he’ll ever change, but stranger things have happened.

  42. Jonathan Limpchimpi Says:

    So many of the players on a one year deal killed it. Barrett obviously…Suh more than held his own…and Perriman came on strong the last 5 games or so. Makes for a tight salary cap moving forward. What a weird year…great plays…record breaking stats and a kicker good in only non clutch situations. All NFL kickers can kick from 50+ yards these days…so few are truly clutch when it counts. Add kicker to the offseason wish list if you ask me. Preferably proven veteran or undrafted young guy. Gay’s Giant gag and Falcon fold leaves an awful aftertaste.

  43. D1 Says:


    Gay finished the season tied at for 8th most FGM.
    Kicks from 40-49 he finished 3rd.
    Kicks from 50-50yds, 3rd.

    If all kickers can hit 50+ then He shouldn’t be 3rd most successful.

    He was a rookie and He did well. Next year He should improve as most kickers do in the league. He’s already top 10 , so improving just the avg between first and second year players should have Gay in the top 5 league wise.

    Now how is getting rid of him for another rookie going to be a smart decision?
    It’s not!

  44. Jonathan Limpchimpi Says:


    I respectfully disagree. As Gay’s agent…I see your point of view, however.

  45. MadMax Says:

    Well, Auburns loss and the way Derrick brown performed just may push him down to #14….If Suh retires, then we need another top talent guy at DT and Brown is that guy. He just might be available at our pick…..then we snag Love at QB.

  46. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Off subject but is anybody watching Najee Harris runs for Alabama late in the game when they know he’s running he bull rushes them……we need a guy like that.

  47. D1 Says:


    Lol…. I can justify billing him for an extra hour.

    Have a great day..

    Btw, if you’re proposal was to sign a veteran kicker then it’s not the same discussion. I’m more than likely to side with you depending upon who is his replacement.

  48. CalBucsFan Says:

    The old clip won’t play here Joe, but I saw “The Catch” live too and agree with Ira. It was in the NFC Championship game and obviously had greater importance, but JW to Perriman was a much more difficult throw and an even more difficult catch.

  49. CalBucsFan Says:

    TBBF-I agree with you, Najee Harris would help the offense big time and is sorely need, he’s a beast. He and RJ together would be a great RB tandem and would open up the offense even more. Go get him Bucs!

  50. #1bucfan Says:

    Sorry but i don’t agree with any of it. Both QB an WR made great plays there. My question is why is winston throwing into double coverage. That play could have easily gone the other way like 30 plus have this season. That was a boneheaded throw. I get it that Winston has the confidence in himself that he can make any throw an I think he can to but it’s not smart after 5 years he’s still making bone headed throws. Come on y’all

  51. Coburn Says:

    You guys all telling me you similarly heaved balls like that during sandlot football and had your guy run or jump up to get it? Ball never should have been thrown. As others said if he doesn’t out jump defenders it a posible pick.

  52. Coburn Says:


  53. Coburn Says:

    Used to surprise myself at first until I realized you have a lot more wiggle room on the types of throws than you think and more of it comes down to your receiver making the right adjustment and play in the air. Many people can make the odd throw that might wow you. . Reason most people CNT play in big leagues is reading defenses

  54. The Coroner Says:

    Sign Perriman and Godwin.
    Then trade Perriman to …the Browns …the Raiders…

  55. Mister Negative Nancy Says:

    A better defense intercepts that ball. If you watch the ball is actually going right to the defender, but he does a pirouette for some unknown reason. Given how far away that ball was when thrown that was just terrible defense not to sit there and field it like a punt.

  56. BucFanDuh Says:

    Perriman will get paid, but not by the bucs! He’s WR3. He’s definitely good enough to be a WR2 for 90% of the teams in the nfl, but he isn’t going to make wr2 money with the bucs. Bucs have Mike Evans and Chris Godwin paychecks to worry about… not to mention half the defense(shaq and jpp)… and a 20-30mil quarterback to pay. Perriman deserves a paycheck, he stepped up huge in the last 3 weeks. Fingers crossed he sticks around for the bucs with a below average contract for his previous years output.. but it’s not likely. I will look forward to watching him wreck some stats in the years to come tho, regardless of who he plays for.
