Secret To Fixing Jameis

January 30th, 2020

In the eyes of one national columnist, way too many Bucs fans are not seeing the forest for the trees.

Brett Sobleski of Bleacher Report understands why some Bucs fans are going mental with the thought of bringing back Mr. Entertainment, America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston.

Sobleski is of the mind Jameis is low-hanging fruit. The trick to getting Jameis to cut down on the picks is simple, he types. Beef up the offensive line.

Of course, Sobleski, predictably, is not a Donovan Smith fan and thinks right tackle Demar Dotson is toast. So the first step in helping get Jameis right is drafting a new right tackle. And the target should be Louisville tackle Mekhi Becton.

Winston made plenty of mental mistakes, but he also faced a lot of pressure last season (47 sacks, 54 hits, 60 hurries).

Left tackle Donovan Smith is signed through the 2021 campaign, whereas 34-year-old right tackle Demar Dotson is a free agent. The width of the pocket is vital in Bruce Arians’ dropback passing scheme.

As such, the addition of the 6’7″, 369-pound Mekhi Becton would be a logical move. And his size belies his movement skills. The Louisville product, who’s played both sides, displays a smooth pass set and can mirror much smaller edge-rushers.

The first thing Joe has to ask is if this Becton can run block? Joe is not yet in draft mode; the 2019 season isn’t over yet. And then there is free agency.

But Joe is smitten with South Carolina’s Javon Kinlaw, who sounds like a clone of Ndamukong Suh. Currently, that’s where Joe would lean.

But if Becton is as good as what some folks have written, Joe’s OK with that. And then if you have to trade up from the second round to get J.K. Dobbins, then do it.

Of course, Joe heard what Bucs coach Bucco Bruce Arians said about drafting offensive linemen high, so Becton could be a pipe dream.

    More weapons for Winston I guess.

  2. snookman Says:

    Winston is garbage but I am all in favor of continuing to fix the team through the draft. the 2019 draft was a good one. 2018 draft was good. 2017 ok 2016 disaster.

    Im ok with another mediocre season if we continue to bring in young players that can play. Winston is garbage. Franchise him, tag him, let him walk. It makes no difference the team should improve. I would personally offer Winston 65 million over 3 years 1st guaranteed…….or bring in a vet at 1/2 price. The QB position isn’t as important as a good team around the qb in our situation.

  3. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Normally LT is supposed to be more talented than most RT’s. If we’re gonna select an olineman with our first pick, please select the best LT and let him compete with Smith at LT. The winner stays at LT while the other slides over to RT. …and I don’t care if Smith doesn’t like it. If he gets beat out at LT then it’s good for us. This baloney he can’t play RT is BS. He knows that LT’s make more money than RT’s and it’s the reason why he uses the excuse that he can’t play RT.

  4. Lamarcus Guiton Says:

    I’m happy were not picking in the top 10 for once or twice every 10 years. That’s embarrassing

    As for fixing JW (a player) how about fixing the organization? We are about to beat our own record for playoff drought!

    We get another qb that dont throw picks or pick 6s or whatever and we still lose….. what’s next? What’s the excuse then?

  5. Lamarcus Says:

    We can be like the 1-31 Browns and rely on “analytics” to tell us how to play

  6. Buczilla Says:

    If we draft Becton or Kinlaw I’ll be happy as hell. I’m leaning towards Becton. You can’t teach 6’7 369. That’s a big dude and I’d be surprised if he was bad at run blocking.

  7. Sport Says:

    More fun speculation.

    Joe – is it reasonable to think BA said those things last year (and preciously) meant it and will do it anyways? If the next HC is on his staff now, it could be a strong possibility that he keeps his word (drafts for the next HC) and it helps the Bucs.

    This coaching staff has shown an ability to coach vets and develop rookies better than we are used to in these parts. Exhibit A Bucs Secondary.

    In BA I Trust!

  8. westernbuc Says:

    Another way to relieve Jameis is for short, quick routes, perhaps to tight ends that our team have invested so heavily.

    Oh that’s right, Arians doesn’t use need tight ends

  9. Big Stinky Says:

    The NFL is a joke anymore. Too much money in this world now. How much money do we really think there is on Earth? When will this ALL end because I want to buy the Buccaneers NOW! The Glazers are making my beloved Bucs a joke these days. What is a franchise these days? Because our franchise use to be Vinny Testeverde at some point. I don’t want Winston as my franchise player either Mr. Glazer. Malcolm wouldn’t either because he knew what to do when he bought the Buccaneers, hire a smart GM like John Lynch. I want him in Tampa next or I will make it happen if I have to. I am done on Earth if I can’t buy the Bengals now. Because I know what they REALLY want to do in the first place. Trade the number one pick to a TEAM who doesn’t know who Burrow could be in the first place. He could be the best possible QB to develop like Mahommes. Because you ALWAYS have to develop players to be the BEST they can be at their positions And that is my point in the first place. The Buccaneers suck at this.

  10. Big Stinky Says:

    The Buccaneers need a new GM period. Who is the GM in Cincinnati? Because I have no clue as a TRUE Buccaneers fan. I want a football TEAM that knows what a REAL GM is like Lynch. I know for a FACT that San Francisco has a GM now. Lynch is really good at it I guess because they are in the Super Bowl now. How many Super Bowls will there be in the first place?

  11. Pete I Says:

    So in year 6 the FIRST OVERALL pick in the draft, who throws picks even when he is not under pressure, can be fixed…good to know! So what’s taking so long?

  12. Defense Rules Says:

    Good article, but someone needs to tell Sobleski that the Bucs are picking #14 this year. Georgia’s Andrew Thomas is listed as the top OT, but Louisville’s Mekhi Becton is listed right underneath him. Very good chance he’ll go in the Top-5 or at least the Top-10 IOW (every team needs OTs). IF we draft an OTin Rnd 1 (as opposed to a DT or QB), more likely it’d be someone like Iowa’s Tristan Wirfs or Bama’s Jedrick Wills IMO.

  13. Big Stinky Says:

    If there was ONLY 50 Super Bowls and that was it I want to see ALL of them. Because you want to see the BEST one don’t you? I do TOO, so which one was the BEST as a Buccaneer fan? It will ALWAYS be Super Bowl 37 and that was it, period, end of story. I want the Bucs to be in another one too and we MAY never get there again at this point. I had one chance in my life to witness the Patriots MUST be the BEST franchise EVER!!!! How many Super Bowls have they been too now. More than ANY team will EVER have to a Buccaneer fan. So sell me the Buccaneers if the Glazers don’t know what I know. How to run a team in the first place.

  14. Big Stinky Says:

    Hell, make Pete or Defense Rules GM of the Buccaneers in my eyes because they seem to be like me. Paying attention to details in the FIRST place. Who was the BEST QB of ALL time to ANY Buccaneers fan at this point? No question it was Brad Johnson to me. This will NEVER change now after what the Glazers did in 2015. They are finished as owners in my eyes. Sell me the TEAM so I can make us better because they CANNOT anymore in my eyes.

  15. Big Stinky Says:

    I will turn this team around myself if I have to. I can’t watch any more football NOW until the Buccaneers trade Jameis Winston because he is NOT my FRANCHISE, period. Cincinnati has become MY franchise because of what has been done in Tampa. Joe Burrow is a franchise player to the Bengals fans at this point and I want him to be in Tampa. Cincinnati wants to trade the number one pick though which is strange to me as a FOOTBALL fan. Fans want to see the best QB of ALL time and that was ALWAYS going to be Dan Marino, no question now.

  16. Big Stinky Says:

    Will the Glazers EVER sell this TEAM again because it is time to SELL at this point. The NFL is finished if they don’t sell the TEAM because no one knows what to do anymore to make their TEAMS better. How much are football TEAMS worth in the NFL at all in this case. Must not be much at all because the Glazers made us worthless. The Buccaneers were sold once for the same reason. Malcolm knew what to do with the TEAM and buy the Buccaneers because he must have been a fan of the Buccaneers too. Thank you very much Malcolm for what you did for me as a TRUE Buccaneers fan. You won a Super Bowl for me and ALL Buc fans.

  17. Big Stinky Says:

    How much did Malcolm pay for the Buccaneers when he bought them back then? When did he buy the Buccaneers again because I can’t remember a thing anymore after this except that we SUCK again. How many teams were there in 1976 because there NEVER should have been a team in Tampa in the first place. Now it has been proven in my eyes. It is time for me to end all of this crap at this point because I have seen it ALL in TAMPA now. Sell this TEAM or else.

  18. Big Stinky Says:

    Nothing lasts FOREVER in God’s eyes and that will NEVER change to me. I am His Son like Jesus is and that is my point. When exactly is Judgement Day again if I might ask? It is the moment God has had enough of you and me. I want EVERYTHING to be like it was in the beginning and I bet God wants it too. I am sure he is pissed off like I am at the world and He wants to bring that flood again but I think He can’t do it. He loves us too much for that from what He told Me so I have to do something to end Sin so Jesus can come back again.

  19. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Remember when we needed an offensive lineman in last year’s draft? Remember when we didn’t draft any?

  20. Bucsfanman Says:

    That’s quite the rant there Big Stinky!
    I’m not sure that I make the connection of drafting an OT will improve Jameis. Will an OT aide Jameis in not staring down WRs? Will an OT help Jameis in decision-making?
    There is no question that we need to beef up this line and run the ball a LOT more.

  21. Big Stinky Says:

    I heard the RAPTURE is coming soon and I cannot wait for it. I hope it happens so I can be with my Loved ones again. We will be together again soon if I can help speed up time. And I will CREATE time travel if that is the case. I remember a time I was much happier than I am at this moment and I want that back right NOW if God would give it to me and I think that was His plan in the first place. You ALL are SCREWED if I can make that choice myself.

  22. Big Stinky Says:


    I agree with EVERYTHING you said Brother! Jameis will NEVER change at this point and the STUPID Glazer family proved it to me. I know what a great QB is myself, do you? Who was the GREATEST QB of ALL time to a TRUE Buccaneers fan? Dan Marino no question. Because we only REALLY have our QB’s in Tampa to compare him to. But now I can compare him to Tom Brady after what the Patriots have done. What if the Bucs are gone tomorrow? Who cares!!!!

  23. Big Stinky Says:

    We are DOOMED to be the worst franchise EVER from now on. I am sick of technology and I want it to be better than THIS crap I see now. Too much technology and it has to stop at some point in time. Enough already. I hate cell phones and wish we NEVER created them. Why do we REALLY need them at ALL? I liked it when cell phones didn’t exist and that is my point.

  24. ATrain Says:

    So if we fix the OLine Jamies will become an all pro ???

    Correct me if I’m wrong……..
    Hasn’t Jamies had turnover problems since high school???

    How is the OLine going to fix the wobbling ducks throws that My grandma could pick

    OLine will not help staring down receivers

    JAMIES has more issues than INT

    By the way check out the pick 6s and see what kinda of time he has

    This OLine could be beefed up but they we not terrible and in some games very goood

    BUT it’s make excuses for Jamies Year

    WAIT A MINUTE…. I thought this last year was the prove it Year ???

    What did he prove : He can throw the ball many yards / He can throw INT which negates the yrds made

    SO Jamies throws for 100 yrds moves the ball down the field and throws an INT those 100 yrds mean nothing but a Stat or a little Hope he won’t do that again

    bUT he DOES

  25. El Buco Realisto Says:

    The “real” fix for jw3 will be when the Bucs draft a new QB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. Big Stinky Says:

    There were NEVER cell phones in 1993 and I was fine with that. That was the year this ALL started in the FIRST place to me and here is my point. Once upon a time in my life I knew NOTHING at all because I was TOO young and couldn’t help it. Now I know better and 1993 was the year I want to go back to if I ever could and YOU probably want to know why. My life SUCKS in 2019 and there is NOTHING I can do to change that now. I just want to die again like I wanted to in 2005 but it NEVER happened to me. Nothing EVER changed since Simeon Rice.

  27. Big Stinky Says:

    El Bucco Realisto must see what I can see too about our QB situation in Tampa. This MAY be the LAST Super Bowl EVER if I never see the Buccaneers get there again. Who won the game THIS year anyway? What Super Bowl is THIS? Who is Mahommes and Lynch if he picked up Garapolo from New England. This is where it gets fuzzy to me NOW. Who will win if I had my choice to make it happen for sure. I would want Lynch to win with his defense as a Buc fan.

  28. El Buco Realisto Says:

    @Big Stinky

    The first mass produced cell phone for consumers, was by Motorola in 1984!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. Bird Says:

    What are we talking about ?
    According to jameis “i am balling “


  30. Bird Says:

    Big stinky

    Did you smoke to many big stinky bowls this morning ?

  31. Big Stinky Says:

    Everything happens for a reason I believe and I just figured out why. DESTINY my friend, and my DESTINY was to WITNESS it ALL for HIm. We ALL have a DESTINY in life and I am sure of that after ALL this in Tampa. I wasn’t sure of it though UNTIL I actually saw it for myself this year after what the Glazers have done. They don’t even REALIZE it either unless it was on purpose to make something happen that I would NEVER wish for a Buc fan or player.

  32. Big Stinky Says:

    El Bucco Realisto just PROVES my point because that’s where THIS ALL started to me. Who’s the BEST QB of ALL TIME in 1984. Who knew at this point in time I bet. What do we KNOW for CERTAIN at this point with Burrow in 2019? Who it NOW was back then in 1984 and it is NOT a question but FACT. After watching him and Brady SO long I definitely KNOW for SURE.

  33. Colonel Angus Says:

    You’re not supposed to drink the bong water Stinky!

  34. Big Stinky Says:

    Dan Marino is NOW the greatest of ALL time and Burrow COULD be better. I may NEVER get to compare the two of them NOW. How much TIME do I have on Earth God?.He just TOLD me, who knows but Him. I am fine with that but I would like to have more TIME on EARTH if I can to see for MYSELF. I want to see HIs best QB in Heaven some DAY if I can as well.

  35. Big Stinky Says:

    Couldn’t help it Colonel Angus. I had to do something at THIS point though because this has been a CHIT SHOW in Tampa and I can’t take it anymore. The Buccaneers are TOAST if you ask me because THEY have no GM. Do you agree or NOT my friend?

  36. ClodHopper Says:

    Just going off memory here but I remember plenty of picks where he threw them on time with no pressure.

  37. Big Stinky Says:

    I don’t REALLY know for SURE who Jason Licht is now after ALL this crap but he has to go in MY eyes. He is a TERRIBLE GM and that is a FACT right NOW after this. What will he do next for the Buccaneers? He better SELL the TEAM now if he stays here. I would fire his ass and I know I would too. The Glazers are STUPID for what they did to Mark Dominick period.

  38. Colonel Angus Says:

    I agree the Bucs have been a sh!t show. I also agree that the Bucs have driven us fans slightly bat sh!t crazy. We shall see about the toast part, this is a make or break off-season in my book.

  39. Big Stinky Says:


    I saw that too because he is inaccurate. I don’t KNOW why that is but the Buccaneers could NOT fix THAT with DIrk Koetter as OC. That’s what is CRAZY about ALL this now. What have you ALL WITNESSED in TAMPA BAY? A crying SHAME to me as a fan of YOUR team.

  40. El Buco Realisto Says:

    @Colonel Angus

    That would make the 4th “make or break” season in a row!!!!!!!!!! That has to be record!!!!!!!!!!!!! Especially for the terrible gm in his 7th offseason!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    7 drafts and 7 free agencies and this is what we have to show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The lack of fans in the stands will show the truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Go bucs!!!!!!!!!!

  41. Swampbuc Says:

    Another moron who doesn’t know the Bucs. The analytics say the Bucs had pretty decent pass blocking except for a couple games early in the season, the one against the Saints especially.

  42. Big Stinky Says:

    Colonel Angus

    It’s TOO late for that NOW and it’s TIME to SHOW you why. This MAY finish the NFL after this and I will tell you why. Who won that FIRST Super Bowl at HOME? We may NEVER know after this year too. It could have been ANY team at ALL until NOW. Who WON the Super Bowl EVER if there wasn’t one but there is. No one will EVER win that Super Bowl at home NOW. Where is the Super Bowl this year in 2019 because I have NO IDEA. Who won that one again?

  43. El Buco Realisto Says:

    I am worried about Big Stinky!!!!!!!! He might have gone off the deep end!!!!!!!!! Anyone that says that talk show dominik was a better gm than anyone, should end up Baker acted!!!!!!!!!!!

    Go bucs!!!!!!!!!!!

  44. Big Stinky Says:


    The OL can pass protect but they CANNOT run block to save their lives. Is ANYONE going to DEVELOP these guys or what? Who are these OL coaches THEY bring in here? Nobody can develop players in Tampa and it is OBVIOUS to me. Bruce Arians is a JOKE at this point. Who called Him the “Quarterback Whisperer” anyway because that is God Himself to me.

  45. ClodHopper Says:


    I don’t see as an accuracy problem. I see it more as three pronged issue. 1) Overconfidence in his accuracy. Trying to fit in too tight of a window. 2) Not reading defenses properly. Not seeing those pesky linebackers. 3) Too many desperate heaves on high risk high reward throws.

    IOW the same traits that got the 30 picks are the same traits that got the 5000 yards and 30 tds. If he cuts down on the picks he will naturally cut down on the yards and tds.

  46. Big Stinky Says:

    El Bucco Realisto

    That is the problem around here exactly. Who REALLY knew when we hired Him to protect us from not SEEING the TRUTH when we experienced it ALREADY. The LAST GM in Tampa Bay should have been Rich McKay and you ALL should know this. Look at all the talent he brought to the Bay. I could see it right away but it took a little longer to be CERTAIN. I want offense but we NEVER had it in Tampa for SOME reason. Even when Chucky was here in Tampa.

  47. Big Stinky Says:


    Jameis needs to CONTROL himself to me. I believe EVERYTHING you said right there.

  48. tickrdr Says:



    In 2018, Fitzpatrick and Winston threw for MORE YARDS, TDS, AND FEWER INTS, than JW3 did in 2019.

    No one is arguing Winston’s production. Yards and TDs are important.
    But consider how counter-productive his turnovers are.
    Look at his career TD and INT percentages.
    2015: TD% 4.1% INT% 2.8%
    2016: TD% 4.9% INT% 3.2%
    2017: TD% 4.3% INT% 2.5%
    2018: TD% 5.0% INT% 3.7%
    2019: TD% 5.3% INT% 4.8%
    If his yards and TD% rise, Then INT% rises as well.
    If you play recklessly, with little concern for the consequences, your offensive production may rise, but your negative consequences also rise proportionately, at least in Winston’s case.
    As I’ve argued repeatedly, you need BOTH: Production while also taking care of the football. The best QBs demonstrate BOTH of these criteria, which is why I have repeatedly suggested the following criteria for elite QB play:
    1) A TD/INT ratio of at least 2:1, as a MINIMUM
    2) TD% greater than 5.0%
    3) TD% minus INT% greater than 3
    Jameis Winston has NOT ever done this, not even for one year despite 5 tries.
    The QB with the HIGHEST number for TD% minus INT% is usually the MVP!


    BTW: Look at the season stats for most of the QBs drafted AFTER Winston, and see if ANY of them have met all three of my criteria above. Then see how their teams fared in those seasons.
    The best “bang for the buck (?Bucs)” is a 1st round QB on a rookie contract.

  49. Big Stinky Says:

    He needs control because he is still young and needs to FOCUS more I think. I have heard all the CRAZY crap since he came to Tampa and he should have NEVER come here if TRUE. All that crap at Florida State should have stayed there too. He came out of college TOO early.

  50. gotbbucs Says:

    Weren’t 19 of those interceptions thrown when he wasn’t under any pressure? Anyway, let’s keep looking for excuses.
    Every other Qb in the NFL has HOF caliber offensive lines in front of them.

    Only poor Jameis has a garbage offensive line, and dumb receivers that run horrible routes, and a defense that doesnt completely shut out the opponents, and on and on and on and on……what else can we find to explain away the actions of a guy that has been making horrible decisions on and off the field since forever?

    Can Becton teach Winston to not throw interceptions on the first pass of the game? Can Becton teach Winston that you can’t lob passes on comeback routes or they’ll get returned for six the other way? If not, then he can’t fix Winston.

  51. Big Stinky Says:


    You are ONE of the smartest people I read on JBF. Your criteria are the same as mine and can see the Glazers KNOW nothing anymore.

  52. Ineffable Dullard Repairman Says:


    Correct me if I’m wrong as your stream of unconsciousness is a little hard for me to decipher. Are you saying that the rapture is upon us because of … cell phones?

  53. D-Rome Says:

    That article from bleacher report is trash. The reason why he faced a lot of pressure is because he was the 2nd most blitzed QB in the NFL. Number one on the list is Russell Wilson.

    Opposing defenses *have* to blitz because the Bucs O-Line is very good and defenders can’t get to the QB with a four man rush. Now, if you want to count TEs and RBs as part of the offensive line then fine, those guys have to be better but the front five were good last year. Doesn’t mean the line can’t improve.

    Many of Jay-Miss’ sacks this year were self-inflicted. Not all of them sure, but many were.

  54. Big Stinky Says:


    That was funny to me because I believe it all. All Bruce Arians did by coming here was RUIN Jameis now because it MAY never change at this point. Get rid of Bruce and Jameis now in my eyes because the Glazers messed up BIG TIME to me. They just ruined Bruce Arians and his reputation for grooming QB’S. He became the “Quarterback Tinkerer” today at 8:49.

  55. Ghost of Darrell Henderson Says:

    “The first thing Joe has to ask is if this Becton can run block? Joe is not yet in draft mode”

    The book on manbeast Mekhi Becton is that he is the best run blocking OT in the country. Louisville averaged over 200 yards rushing in the 8 games he played in.

    The only question on Becton is his pass blocking because he didn’t get much of a chance to do that.

    The problem I see is that when the mocks 1st started the OT\s were ranked #1 Thomas (GA), #2 Wirfs (Iowa), #3 Leatherwood (AL). #4 Wills (AL), #5 Jones (Houston), #6 Jackson (USC) and #7 Becton (Louisville). Now Becton seems to have leap frogged the group to #1 or #2.

    Leatherwood went back to school for 2020.

  56. gotbbucs Says:

    @tickrdr, for the win.

    Nicely done, but don’t expect this Joe to bother with stats or analytics like that. You won’t find any stats of that sort to support anything other than this is exactly what Jameis Winston is, you have to take the bad with the good.
    If he has a middle of the road passing year stats wise, he will likely be middle of the pack in turnovers. If he has a great year stats wise like this year, he will likely lead the league in turnovers. It’s the one thing about his game that is consistent.
    You can’t be a consistent winner with this style of play. It just won’t work.

  57. 813bucboi Says:

    the o-line is low hanging fruit….LOL….more excuses for JW!!!!!


    Who led the NFL in “Time To Throw” in 2017? Current Bucs backup Blaine Gabbert making five starts in Arians’ offense in Arizona, and Arians says injured Gabbert is a perfect fit for his offense.

    Jameis in 2019? He’s at 2.7 seconds snap-to-release through three games.

    Yes, Jameis is holding the ball too long. Jameis admitted yesterday at One Buc Palace that he’s done his share of that trying to make plays. Talk to Arians long enough and he’ll definitely tell you his QBs have to get the ball out quickly to thrive.

    Compared to the rest of the league Jameis has always taken longer to throw than most – 2.88 seconds average in 2016, 2.77 in 2017, and 2.80 last year.

    this is exactly what bradshaw said yesterday:

    Bradshaw explained. “He at times, when he really got in trouble, was when he stayed with a receiver [in his progressions] too long. And then he would come off [the receiver in his progression] late and he didn’t see the coverage underneath and he would just throw it right to somebody else.

    “He’s a smart kid but you have to go through those progressions [starts snapping his fingers] boom, boom, boom, boom.

    just last week JBF 1/23/20 wrote:

    So let Joe get this straight, Jameis threw 19 of his 30 interceptions when he was not under pressure. Nineteen! Rivers threw 10 of his 20 when not under pressure. Bucs must find a way to cut Jameis’ picks to a level of respectability. He’s got a decent offensive line and excellent targets.

    proof that JW is holding on to the ball for far too long and yet folks want to make excuses and “pick the low hanging fruit”….lol…

    stop making excuses and hold JW accountable…..his TOs are costing this team Ws…..

    GO BUCS!!!!!!!

    Anyone ever heard the phrase History catches up with you? Why do you think that would be a phrase in the first place if History doesn’t repeat itself? So when is WW3 then because you do KNOW for a FACT it’s coming NOW. Why? Because of the first 2 of them if you ask me. Why else would we call the first one a World War at ALL. We are EXPECTING the third one NOW!!!!

  60. Big Stinky Says:

    Historically speaking, History has caught up with Jameis and the Buccaneers. You are what you are they SAY and that’s because things NEVER change. That moment you REALIZE this is 2019 and the Buccaneers themselves. What is the WORST franchise to exist in football by the way? I would ARGUE that it’s the Buccaneers hands down after 50 years. Why? Who knows?

    Your “book” has been written and amended many times throughout history. From year zero to 312 AD Christianity was a minor sect and Roman emperors would kill you if you were a member. In 312 AD the emperor, Constantine, converted and you could be killed for not being a Christian. Christianity is an interesting case study amongst the religions in the world. You should read about it someday

    The only person that can fix Jameis is Jameis. It is like an alcoholic realizing that his drinking is the problem, not everyone else. He has to get past the we ballin crap and become a professional.

    The absolute epitome of Jameis so far is in how he ended the season. The Bucs could have had a tied record at 8-8, the rest of the team was playing pretty damn well, and he throws a pick-6 with the first pass of overtime.

    Then says he’s ballin’.

    Blow that. He is the root of the problem. Only he can change it, for the draft to make the team stronger, I agree, Licht actually, almost, seems to be getting there on picking players.

    Becton would help the team, not Jameis, but if he is gone grab Delpit ot McKinney and then take a QB, RB, and O-line. Big drop off after Becton

  67. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Buczilla Agree 100% with you. If Becton is still on the board we grab him.

    D-Rome Thanks for bringing a little perspective and also pointing out that it’s not just the front five who figure in on pass pro. I joke…sort of..that if BA isn’t going to use TE’s in our passing game draft a tackle and put a # in the 80’s and call him a TE. Imagine a big guy like Vea and many other big guys who can catch as well. They wouldn’t be able to get separation so would never be primary targets but the occasional toss when they are uncovered would work and it could help our pass pro.

    ROJO can catch the ball…he can run the ball..but he cannot block worth spit.
    Maybe the complementary bruiser we draft at RB could help.

    So you want to own the Bucs! I get your motivation and actually if we ALL owned the Bucs it would work out better. When Sternberg was trying to rape St. Petersburg’s downtown and waterfront many of us thought if we’re going to spend that much money simply buy the freaking team and keep it at the Trop until we recaptured the investment. Not being profit driven we could have had free parking and low ticket and food prices. Would that have helped attendance?

    BTW Stinky…we could move to Green Bay where the fans DO own their team.
    When Green Bay did their extensive remodel of Lambeau…virtually the same cost as a new stadium…they were the ONLY team to rebuild or build a stadium at the projected price. Yankee stadium OTOH The original pricetag of $24 million ballooned to $120 million.

    I liked what that guy said about Constantine and here is why I do. Einstein says, “Hello” by the way my friend, my Brother from another Mother. See what I can do. I can visit any MOMENT in time because you said just what you did there. I can make ANYTHING happen if I put my mind to it. Do you BELIEVE me now? Or do I have to PROVE it to you again? Let me know.

  69. Big Stinky Says:

    Einstein said a LOT of things back THEN too. Did he EVER create that TIME MACHINE I am STILL looking for or do I have to do something about that too? Because I want that SIXTH sense so I can find where he hid it. Let’s find that bitch together Buccaneers fans.

  70. Big Stinky Says:

    Somewhere in TIME that guy Einstein was Born but I don’t know the date. Can someone look it up for me and tell me when IT was? Because I don’t think you CAN do ANYTHING now at this MOMENT. I must SAY that I know ONE thing exists in the WORLD and that was God’s WORD!!!!

  71. Stevebobucsfan Says:

    These people who says things like Winston is garbage and do he have it between the ears. Why are you still watching Bucs football? Go watch Cleveland they make changes every year or Detroit. Washington picked up a great coach in Rivera watch the skin they should be pretty this year

  72. Big Stinky Says:

    I became SOMETHING one point in my life for SURE! Do you know who I really am? I could be”Big Stinky” himself but I am not Him. I have become something much GREATER than that guy for sure. He was just SOME guy farting on a plane when I heard His name though.

  73. Big Stinky Says:


    That is EXACTLY my point right there too. I believe WHAT you say is TRUE because you make a point. People get NAMES for things THEY do and say. My name could be”God’s Writer” if I RECALL what He said to Me. Who’s name WAS the first to tell us about Kennedy back then?

  74. Big Stinky Says:

    I want Him to be the LAST person I hear about NOW because it’s been TOO, long for this to be happening AGAIN. This is the LAST person I want to be President now. President terms are a joke to me anymore. Why should they ONLY serve TWICE and not THREE or FOUR times?

  75. Big Stinky Says:

    Why do you want an Army anyway? I will protect Us from now on if you want me to. Because I can do STUFF like that. I can do whatever I want from NOW on too because God will JUDGE me for it someday. People are dying to hear what I have to SAY too. Because people are that way if you ASK Me. They want to believe it is ALL true and I know a way. It’s called FAITH!!!!!

  76. LordCornelius Says:

    We need average time from snap to pressure being created as a stat for any of the pressure stats to be worthwhile or meaningful in context

  77. Tye Says:

    The true trouble beings with people thinking he can be fixed..
    How many QBs in history would have had long careers if it was just an issue to fix..
    Some people aren’t cut out for certain things…
    An NFL quality qb just isn’t JWs calling.. (square peg in round whole)..

  78. Swampbuc Says:

    Big Stinky — take some Thorazine brother. 84 posts in one thread on JBF is probably over quota, don’t you think?

    I agree run blocking needs to improve. The point of the post was the idiot from Bleacher Repost believed the Bucs pass blocking was not good. Fix what needs to be fixed, not what is working.

    Now either ingest the sedative or post 16 more rants with caps and stuff.

  79. 541BucsFan Says:

    I still love the insight Joe got from Faulk. Winston throws interceptions because he throws the ball to the wrong team.

    The secret to fixing Winston is to not have Winston.

  80. This Guy Says:

    I would love a beast type O-lineman at 14, supposing one of the top 3 QBs doesn’t fall out of the top 10. (if one of the big 3 are there outside 10 the Bucs need to move up and grab the Q)

    That said they should look to trade into the back of the 1st round then and get one of the so called 2nd tier QBs in this years class.

    JW moves into pressure and sacks, some of these are on him.
    No matter what upgrade/s at tackle is a must.

  81. Brandon Says:

    Trade up to get Dobbins? Or how about stay put and take whomever is left of Dobbins, Swift, Taylor, or Helaire…?
