Terry Bradshaw Talks Jameis Winston, Bad QB Decisions And Suspect Coaching

January 10th, 2020

Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw did not hold back when asked about America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, this week.

Outside the TV studio-show realm, Bradshaw can (thankfully) offer more than one-liners and laughs, and that’s what he did during his visit to The PewterCast.

The hosts of the Bucs-centric podcast asked Bradshaw the money question — that surrounds the future of Jameis.

Joe will let Bradshaw speak for himself.

“I’d like to be his coach,” Bradshaw said of Jameis. “I think a former quarterback like my self, because I threw a lot of picks. I understand where they’re coming from. He’s a gambler and sometimes he makes bad decisions in a sense. He knows what he’s doing; it’s not like some of the picks I saw earlier this year where he mis-read the coverage. He’ll, at times, think he can squeeze it in there and they end up being picks. There’s also dropped passes. It’s more than just him with 30 interceptions. C’mon.

“If [the Bucs] are not certain [about Jameis]… they could franchise him and try to straighten him out. Man, he threw 30 touchdown passes. [He threw] for 5,000 yards. I mean, seriously. Hey listen, the players love this guy, he just has to stop making mistakes.

“I’m going to tell you something, I threw a lot of interceptions. Of the 210 interceptions I threw, 200 of them were my fault. (laughs) You do get fooled in coverages. And I think a lot of me is in Jameis. You just think, ‘Oh, man, I can get this,’ you know.

“… You just can’t let [interceptions] affect your confidence. I think he’s got to be more judicious with the football but the greatness of Jameis Winston, and I see greatness; I mean I know the fans are probably screamin’ and maybe you guys are too. But you don’t do some of the things he does; he does some brilliant things. It’s just that sometimes he does some things and you go, ‘What the heck was he thinkin’?’

“And it’s the ‘what the heck was he thinking’ that you’ve got to eliminate. He’s a smart kid. And I don’t think they want to get rid of him. And I don’t think they want to start over with a quarterback. There’s too much talent there. Too much invested in him. I just say, ‘Coach him up. Coach him up.’ Coach him harder than ever, or make the reads, you know, possibly make it simple. I don’t know.

“I just like him. It’s just that he does make mistakes and you go, ‘What the heck was he doing?’ But I’ve played that position and I know what it’s like to throw a ball and go, ‘Sheeesh, what in the world was I thinking?’ I do it myself. So I keep him. That’s my answer. I franchise him. I keep him. … Or you go draft somebody and I don’t think you want to do that.

“You can fix [bad decisions]. You can fix it. I can promise you. You can fix it.”

Bradshaw went on to “defend myself a little” for all his interceptions blaming, in part, not having a quarterback coach. But Jameis, he said, doesn’t have that excuse, so his coach has to step it up. “He’s got one and they needed to do a better job.”

Can the Bucs coach the ugly football out of Jameis? Or at least enough of the ugly?

It’s a horrible question to be asking after a guy has made 70 starts, but Joe suspects Bucs fans will indeed get an answer when opening day 2020 rolls around.

    ricky bobby!!!!!

  2. runnerdoc Says:

    33 touchdowns, 5000 yds and two pro bowl receivers not throwing a single ball to themselves. 3rd in the league in scoring.

    Of course he’ll be back. The is all press speak while roster decisions and money get sorted out.

  3. TOM Says:

    Bradshaw is an idiot who just loves listening to himself talk. What comes out of his mouth is just dribble. He thinks he’s funny but nothing more than a clown.

  4. Buc believer Says:

    Yes they can. And if they don’t want to another team will and will multiple Super Bowls because of it.

  5. D-Rome Says:

    Can the Bucs coach the ugly football out of Jameis?

    No, I don’t believe they can. We’ve been asking this question for five years. The Buccaneers had Jameis use virtual reality to improve on his play recognition. The Buccaneers have brought in some of the best coaches in the game to fix Jameis. He currently has the best 1-2 WR tandem in the NFL. He has an offensive line that offers him far more protection than the knuckle dragging mouth breathers think. He regressed. We keep hearing all of this talk of “If Jameis can do this and if the Buccaneers can do that, then he will be elite.” He’s a 3rd tier QB. He’s the Dominique Wilkins of the NFL. Great talent, can really entertain an audience, puts up certain gawdy numbers, but will never lead a team anywhere.

    Why is it so hard for people to accept he has reached his ceiling? Some of you think that if he can cut his INTs down to the 15-20 range that would be good. Newsflash, it isn’t. He only had one game last season where he didn’t turn the ball over and that was the Carolina win.

  6. gotbbucs Says:

    Bradshaw had the luxury of having the “Steel Curtain” to pick up the peices for him. He also played in an age where DB’s could almost get away with murder out there.
    Has nobody looked at the interception numbers of the QB’s that are in the playoffs this year? You just can’t throw them anymore, because if the opposing QB is good, he isn’t going to throw them to your team.

  7. gotbbucs Says:

    You can probably get away with having one interception a game, what you cant do is average three per home game.

  8. miken Says:

    We are still doing these articles after 5 years?

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Blame the coaches……all 374 of them……they just can’t seem to get through to Winston…….it’s definitely their fault…..not Winston’s…..if they simply coached better all would be well.

  10. Sharthappens Says:

    Terry should take a coaching job in the XFL, it’s where Extra Chromosome JW will be soon enough.

  11. Locked In Says:

    I don’t think there is any doubt that Winston will be back, and for multiple years not franchised.

  12. Formerly Tampa 2 Says:

    5 years of trying to fix Jameis is dhows there is no fixing Jameis.

  13. Bobby M. Says:

    You cant fix whatever happens when the bullets are flying…..its not happening. There are basic concepts Jameis still doesn’t grasp the value of….like a simple dump off pass to his RB. Koetter and Monken used to comment on this…..Arians has as well, yet he just doesn’t do it. Its not coaching or lack of, its what happens with Jameis when the bullets are flying.

    The solution for Jameis is simple……less is more. Go get Leveon Bell and run the ball, do screens, dump offs, etc. Keep the plays out of Winston’s hands and you might have a shot but my belief with Winston, particularly with Mike Evans, is the players get in his head and he starts staring down WRs and forcing the ball when he shouldn’t. Evans is in elite talent so it makes it easier to have confidence in throwing it up there but 5 yrs has proven, it doesn’t work.

  14. Grt1 Says:

    I guess all the Jameis haters know more than a Hall of Famer

  15. LaMarcus Says:

    Would the JW haters like to chim in…….. hmmmmm. Jw there is no fixing. JW is great man. Interceptions dont matter. Keep Firing

  16. LaMarcus Says:

    And if he keeps firing and gets picked off repeatedly is the answer to getting rid of them.

  17. LaMarcus Says:

    Leftwich is problem on offense. But I like how Arians after a pick just stays calm, love taps on the cheeks and then pat him the head while JW looks perplexed. That’s some professional management expertise there. All BA has do and admit the failed BL and move on. Get a real coordinator

  18. Sport Says:

    In the end it will be BA’s call. JW has put a target on every coach he’s had in the NFL, now according to Bradshaw, FJ see coaches should coach him harder. How many will it take before people realize he is The Immovable Object.

    And for those of you trying to eliminate plays to avoid him throwing picks are going down a very slippery slope. He throws a lot of picks early, so you can’t say, let’s cut down his number of throws. He throws Int’s in short and mid distances, that leaves handoffs, laterals, and bombs.

    Does that game plan work with a QB getting paid $30m at 15% of your entire salary cap for 2020?

    In BA I Trust!

  19. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Give the Bucs that Steelers 70’s OLine and Franco Harris and we’re good to go…

  20. 1sparkybuc Says:

    That clown won four league championships. Another clown put together the greatest Buccaneer Defense in franchise history, according to another mental midget posting on this site. Terry Bradshaw knows football. He did his job on the field as a QB, and he does his job as an entertainer on radio and tv. It takes big balls for a person who can’t do either of those jobs to be critical of a man who can. Neither Bradshaw nor Dungy have to pay to get in the HOF. To disagree is one thing. To disrespect is something else.

    Spot on gotbbucs.

    Top QB’s today in the NFL play smart with the football, period. They don’t take risks or make decisions like Jameis Winston routinely does and they don’t need too. The evolution of offensive football with all the rule changes also contribute to QB’s not needing to make risky decisions with the football.

    But hey we get to say ‘no risk it, no biscuit’ watching other teams play in the playoffs. Which is par for the course for being a Buc’s fan I guess.

  22. BucMcBruce Says:

    Opening day 2020 we find out. My initial thought was that the same bad Jameis will show up. I almost dread it. All offseason we will hope for good Jameis to happen. Then when Jameis throws multiple pics in game one we will be pissed that we wasted the whole offseason on a QB solution. I already know that will happen. Same pattern for 5 years. I seriously dread that happening.

  23. No Risk It No Biscuit Says:

    40 TDS baby!

    Franchise and draft a QB.

    GO BUCS!!!

  24. View from 132 Says:

    Bradshaw is a clown. He was a QB of a great team with a great defense, but the 1970s is a LONG time ago. The game has changed.

  25. View from 132 Says:

    To put Bradshaw’s comments in perspective, if Tom Brady retired today, this would be his opinion of a 25 year old QB in 2060.

  26. ATLBucs Says:

    Bobby M. Says: There are basic concepts Jameis still doesn’t grasp the value of….like a simple dump off pass to his RB. Koetter and Monken used to comment on this…..Arians has as well, yet he just doesn’t do it.

    Really?? Maybe it’s me but it seems like Jameis checked down to running backs and actually threw the ball away more this year than ever.

  27. danr Says:

    ATL- its the dump offs that are the problem. most of his INTS come from short passes this year. Little outs to a RB or quick throw to a wide out.

  28. Eric Says:

    If only the bucs had the steel curtain defense and Franco Harris………

  29. Reyes Says:

    Winston is too much down and not enough up. He loses more games than he wins with his Gambler mentality, he plays football like he lives his life inconsistent, we have given him all the weapons a quarterback could possibly ask for. Pro Bowl wide receivers, great tight ends and offensive coaches, I think I’ve seen enough.

  30. geno711 Says:

    How many coaches has Winston had now that do not know how to coach him according to some on this site?

    If you read just Bradshaw’s quotes above, he seems all over the place. It seems like in part he is saying that interceptions are really on Jameis just like they were on him. Then he equivocates and says some are on dropped balls. Then a little later says he can be coached better.

    Probably Bradshaw is correct, there is some coach out there that could fix him. Is that guy on this staff? I do not know. How many staff’s does Winston need before they fix him? I do not know.

    Interesting article in THE ATHLETIC on 10 places that Jameis Winston can land. What is funny! On every single team mentioned, it appears that Greg Auman lists a better option than Winston for all 10 teams. So just like the Buc’s – other teams would look at him – if no better option – but every team also hopes for a better option.

    Prediction: Jameis will have one year where he looks like he is a top 5 QB.
    Prediction: He will not have more than one year where he looks like a top 5 QB.

  31. Ocala Says:

    It’s delusional to think Jamies is not going to be back. He is an incredible talent, but he does turn the ball over too much.

    The realistic question is not whether or not is he coming back, but how are the Bucs bringing him back….New contract, franchise or transition.

  32. Sleepy903 Says:

    Fans keep saying you cant teach JW he’s done it for 5 years now. 4 years he was under Dirk, different system and scheme. The most INT’s he threw was 18. 1st year under BA and he threw 30. We can talk about the 4 years prior but if he only threw 18 this year we would be talking playoffs. The problem in Dirks offense we didn’t put up points.

    Improvements under BA in the first year, Yards, TD’s and scoring and the deep ball. What went wrong INT’s. History shows under BA in the first year the INT’s are high for ever QB. BA now gets to actually watch film and try to correct some of the issues he has. He probably did the best eval he could do using the Dirk Film however its two different systems.

    The WR have a choice at the top of the routes, the film review will get JW and the Receivers on the same page because now they know what break JW is expecting based on the defenders location. WR also get to clean up their routes and see how fading up field after their breaks especially on outs and comeback/hitch routes is basically an automatic TD. A lot can be learned from film and actually practicing on correcting the issues in camp. Typically during the season your working on your game plan for the upcoming game you watch film but the reps come during camp. Training you muscles, body and eyes to correct your bad habits. You can only do so much off of Dirks film. Now they have 16 game of BA offensive film. I predict the offense will be 1st in all categories except rushing. If they get a true number 1 RB they will be top 15 in rushing. Don’t be surprised in Tampa has 3 1000 yard WR next year too. Or 2 1000 yd WR and 1 around 750-800 yds. IF BP stays it’ll be 3.

  33. Hamsadwitchtime Says:

    @Tom- I’m going to listen to you, and Bradshaw is a clown. Look in the mirror idiot!

  34. fernando diaz Says:

    You all wasting your breath he is not going anywhere
    Franchise tag

  35. martinii Says:

    Hell, I don’t know, I read an article the other day that quoted Carson Palmer saying Winston will absolutely turn it around in his second year under BA. Said the system is so complex it can’t be learned in one year. Bradshaw threw a lot of INT’s but he won a lot of games, so did Farve. When you throw the ball 40-50 times a game you’re going to have a lot of Int’s, and a lot of yards. One thing we haven’t done is put a real competitor behind Winston. (and I don’t consider Fitzmagic a in that group.) Draft some talent from the 3rd RD or FA and put some pressure on Jameis like you do at every other position on the team. With a little work on the O-Line and RB maybe we can see some W’s. Hell I don’t know. I’m not sure this team will ever have another good season.

  36. Craig Says:

    Bradshaw was a QB back when coaches could really coach the stupid out of a QB. Training camp was three times what it is now and coaches could do one on one coaching at any time.

    Jameis can’t be coached the same way. The Collective Bargaining Agreement he came into the league under does not allow coaches enough time to get better.

    If Jameis wants to get better he has to do it himself. He needs to go down to IMG and see what all is happening when he plays. Have one of their guys straighten out his mechanics, teach him how to not throw those damned ducks that flutter away from him 6-8 times a game.

    So far he has not done that. Not even for his audition year to become the 100 million dollar man. The good year Goff had came after he spent the off-season with a QB whisperer.

    If Winston doesn’t do this he will come back rusty, like every year so far, and start the season by blowing a few games.

    That is what pisses me off about Jameis, it is someone else’s problem that he sucks so often.

    Maybe next year our DBs will learn to confuse offenses. A switch from a man look to cover 2 or cover 3 can really screw up a young QB. That should be the next step for them.

  37. Im tired and 87 is right Says:

    The man Jameis will be back with the Bucs! Go Bucs!

  38. Ken Stevenson Says:

    He’s regressed alright. 5000 yds and 30 tds. It’s only been one year under new coaches. You don’t change 4 years of bad habits in one year.

  39. Fire the fans Says:

    It’s so funny that some of you people think he isn’t coming back.. wake up and smell the yards tds and picks lol

  40. Thrasius Says:

    Bradshaw: “And I don’t think they want to get rid of him. And I don’t think they want to start over with a quarterback. There’s too much talent there. Too much invested in him.”

    That is the definition of the sunk cost fallacy. Too bad there are no business people running the Bucs, certainly not the Glazer children or Licht.

    thank you TBBF for pointing that out. What I do not know is if they used the non-exclusive franchise tag is where would that place Jameis’ salary? Better than the $27+/-M for the Exclusive tag I am sure. That would give the Bucs some good leverage

    This is the answer I posted under the other article.

    The price is the same for the exclusive & non-exclusive franchise tag….it’s just that with the non-exclusive a QB can test the market…..with the exclusive….they cannot.

  42. Mike Johnson Says:

    IF..it took me 6 plus yrs to obtain a college degree then perhaps (I Pray) Jameis will improve with the passage of time. I just don’t know. Sometimes I think Jameis thinks he’s playin back at FSU where the D Backs were not as agile and quick. But here we go again next yr guys. Let’s pull for the guy to..light’em up

  43. DalvinCookRules Says:

    The number of starts is irrelevant. I could be his coach and after a thousand starts he wouldn’t be any better… But if you gave him great coaching, then he could be a 15-18 INT per season QB (which is where he was usually at with Koetter and that was fine–again with a real defense the Bucs would’ve made multiple playoff runs under Koetter/Winston. That is pretty much irrefutable if you analyze the data).

  44. RODNEY ALLEN Says:

    D Rome even if he has reached his ceiling that ceiling included 5100 yards n 33 tds that’s a helluva a ceiling

  45. Buccernutter Says:

    It’s crazy how many people in here know more than randy moss, terry bradshaw, bruce arians, brett favre, warren sapp, etc.

    Why don’t we hire our coaches from the jbf blog? You guys are true fans that know a ton!

  46. Swampbuc Says:

    How could Terry Bradshaw, hall of fame quarterback, know anything about playing quarterback? I mean c’mon. The maroons that are calling for Winston’s departure, who can barely spell “cat” if you give them two of the letters, would obviously know a lot more than a hall of famer.

  47. Dapostman Says:

    Arians philosophy says it all. No risk it no biscuit. The HC believes this in his heart.

    That’s why his OC and QB take chances to push the ball downfield via WR.

    You would never hear Bill Walsh stating this and he won 3 Super Bowls.

  48. bucsfan951 Says:

    Season 6 of the tv show named Jameis Winston and here we are waiting for him to eliminate the costly mistakes. How long must a franchise wait before the franchise qb gets his act right? Is there talent there? OF COURSE!!! Winston can look brilliant at times. He can also look like a rookie qb at times, too. Example of that Winston coming full circle would be his very first throw as a bucs qb and his very last throw as a bucs qb.

    Some posters think that ints do not matter. In fact, they do matter! 121 points were scored off of Winston turnovers this year. 121!!!!!! 7.5 points a game! That in itself is alarming.

    i don’t want to hear about the lack of a run game and the blocking and the receivers not catching the ball or a blocker tipping a pass or the refs blowing calls. It is time to hold the qb, the man throwing the ball, accountable for his actions.

    With that said, i would try to sign him to a contract. A 4 yr, 115-120 million dollar contract with 65 million guaranteed. It puts him right around Garoppolo, Stafford, and Carr which in my opinion, is the qb bracket he falls under at this point. If he doesnt want that contract, franchise tag it is!

  49. Nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    You are to wise for this blog! These geniuses really value their FANtastical knowledge over real pros including Palmer who operated under this system…

    I am tired of debating the issue and they call Jameis an idiot…I agree with them on one behalf you can not FIX STUPID!

  50. ATLBucs Says:

    danr Says: ATL- its the dump offs that are the problem. most of his INTS come from short passes this year. Little outs to a RB or quick throw to a wide out.

    He didn’t get picked on many dump-offs but the WR Outs were the biggest problem. I think the main problem was that JW targeted receivers most QB’s would not trust. Many of his picks came while targeting 4, 5 and 6th receivers. I would love to see the stats of who JW was targeting when he got picked.

    JOE- Do you have any stats like this?

  51. SteveK Says:

    Does Palmer or Bradshaw watch the Bucs?

    Their football opinion is better than a JBFers, but do they actually watch the games? Do they see the brilliance, followed up by completed stupidity?

That is pretty much irrefutable if you analyze the data).

    Even with the interceptions, the offense was much more productive in BA’s first year than in all of Koetter’s years. AND!!! It was much more fun to watch. Even when we lost we were competitive and the games were compelling.

  53. Buccfan37 Says:

    Why can’t the Bucs get a competent dependable QB who is a keeper after all of these years in existence? Malfunction junction. Football God’s must be devils.

  54. Buccernutter Says:


    It’s good to see there are still a solid number of us though. Not nearly as much as most fan bases but just enough to deserve to win.

    You’re right, it’s a waste of time debating a lot of these issues. I stoop pretty low.

  55. geno711 Says:

    @ Nole and @Buccernutter.

    These Buc’s fans think they know more that Bill Polian, Anthony Becht, and Mark Dominik who all said after this season that Jameis should be gone.

    How about Mike Golic who has challenged whether you can win with him.
    Or Arians himself who questioned Jameis after this season but never Carson Palmer.

    Palmer was playing with all new players – his 1st year in Arizona. Winston had the same cast of players from the year before. Not everything is equal between Carson Palmers arc with Bruce Arians and Jameis Winston’s arc with the same coach.

  56. Billy_45 Says:

    Yeah I agree, It’s NOT that Jameis needs to dump the ball off more.
    That’s almost a pre snap read or called play where Jameis throws most of his picks. TE Curl or quick out by a WR.

    This doesn’t point to BAD decision making but the opposite.
    Jameis is one of the best in the NFLmon the move, so do that more.

    Plus when Jameis throws the ball down the field and it is picked it’s almost like a punt at times.
    I can live with that and so can BA.

    I don’t see it being much of an issue next year.
    BA has been posturing for contract negotiations and THAT IS IT.

    All you Jameis Haters Mouth Breathers are taking up valuable oxygen.

    January 10th, 2020 at 1:43 pm

    I did not understand your comments. Could you expand some more? Are you saying that most of the interceptions were not Jameis fault and that he is superior out of the pocket?

    Did you discuss some of the interceptions with BA and he told you he will live with some of the long ones? Is there a different set of interceptions that you and BA will accept as ok next year and will live with?

    What don’t you see as being much of an issue next year?

  58. Buccernutter Says:


    All of those people have suggested he’ll be gone but most have insinuated he can be a great quarterback. They have issues with his cap #, not his potential. I still haven’t seen anybody with real credentials suggest he can’t cut it in this league. Bruce also ripped carson many times in Arizona. There is plenty of resources to prove this including this post https://www.cincinnati.com/story/sports/nfl/bengals/2017/09/28/arizona-cardinals-bruce-arians-quickly-changes-tune-carson-palmer/713057001/

    Fact is there is a point for everyone. Some will see 33 tds and 5000 yards in a new system with no defense or run game. Some will see 30 ints. Nobody is necessarily wrong with their analysis, however the haters on this site completely ignore anything good jameis has done and that is ignorant and nowhere near the level polian or becht have elaborated on. Not to mention most of those guys have to cover the league and not just the bucs.

    You also seem to weigh heavily the difference in teams from arizona and us. What about their defense and run game which were both some of the best units in the league? Hmmmmmmmm Jameis is working with bottom 5 units most of his career. Like you said, not everything is equal.

    Now who’s opinions will you value more with insight on the bucs and the QB position?

    Sapp, Favre, Palmer, Arians, Leftwich, and Moss


    Golic, Becht, Polian, and Dominik?

  59. Buccernutter Says:

    OH ya add Terry Bradshaw to the FOR WINSTON list.

    but but but mark dominik….

  60. Troy Says:

    @BucMcBruce You read my mind. We’ll get told how great Winston is doing. Everybody will get all hyped for the season and wham!, three picks in the opener. It never fails. And we’ll be stuck because this franchise is too scared to admit that it made a mistake and just move on.

  61. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Good points Geno…may I add another thought to those points…Carson Palmer was a STAR in this league with the “mighty” Bengals before the Steelers blew out his knee BIG TIME!!! JW not so much

    D-Rome FINALLY…the perfect comparison!!! ‘Nique Wilkins indeed was to the NBA what JW is to the NFL.

    I was a Bengal fan during the time Bradshaw was a Steeler. He had a MAJOR reputation as a good player with a cement head. Does this sound familiar?

    Actually that is unfair to JW. Bradshaw had to endure being called stupid, dullard, dense…he’s obviously recovered but he’s not the brightest bulb in the Chandelier. But he is self deprecating and has parlayed that rep into a multi million dollar career on TV and in the movies.

    True Terry Bradshaw story apropos of nothing. During my college days at UC I was at the old Riverfront stadium for a Steelers-Bengals game. Bill Bergey a great MLB with the Bengals and later Eagles…a baaad dude…caught Bradshaw rolling to his right and escaping the pocket looking downfield when Bergey had a clear run (before any QB protections of the modern game) and planted his helmet directly in Bradshaw’s breadbasket. Bradshaw immediately went down and struggled to crawl off the field on all fours where he then tossed all his cookies.

    He got a standing ovation from the Bengal fans! LMAO…Yeah NFL stadiums can sometimes resemble the old Roman Coliseum with fans cheering a guy barkng his guts out.

  62. J Says:

    Billy_45…totally agree with you.

    what if jameis goes for 40 and 40 next season…

    it would be foykin wild…

    he can’t even be on the 30 for 30 show with numbers like that…

    a 40 td 40 int season would be one for the ages…

    it would be the ubercoaster…

    not the rollercoaster…the ubercoaster…must see football…

    ride the white pony with hints of pewter and red accenting!

    if you remove those 2 sand crabs stuck in jameis’ forehead the problems will all go away 🙂

  65. adam from ny Says:

    remember in pre-season and training camp when jameis’ forehead was all lumped out but no one would talk about it ???

  66. Blame Jameis Says:

    I have early signs of male pattern baldness, must be Jameis’ fault.

  67. D1 Says:


    If you’re serious about what those lumps are, why they are there. It’s not uncommon for players to get them . It’s from wearing a helmet in the heat of summer. Clogs the sweat glands and the result is what you see.
    No mystery.

  68. Jimbobasbuc Says:

    Anyone can out up Jamies numbers if they are allowed to throw 30 INTs

  69. BucEmUp Says:

    Go ahead bucs….go ahead and add another qb to the list of guys you gave up on because the team around him sucked and he goes to win with another team.

    Jameis would have finished the season 7 and 2 without gays missed field goals because the team started to play good AROUND HIM.Think about it DUMMIES!!!!!

    We won games with Jameis in the second half of the season, despite the fractured thumb, despite the interceptions, because the defense became respectable. We lost the last two games because of missed FGs and no Evans and no Godwin. Kick one damn FG and have Godwin agains Houston, and we’re 9-7 instead of 7-9. I have said this over and over again. The Bucs can win with Jameis given decent protection, a ground attack, and a decent defense. Well all we got was one half of a season with a decent defense and WE Won some games. Fractured thumb and all we actually had a WINNING STREAK going. I want Jameis to get a second season in a new system with a healthy thumb and that defense. I don’t know if we will ever have a dependable kicker, a decent ground attack, or even decent protection, but I do know Jameis can move the chains and score points like no other QB we have ever had.

  71. stpetebucsfan Says:

    So just to confirm….we’re expected to pay 30 million for a QB who cannot win unless his kicker makes all his kicks

    Do not expect him to lead the team to victory after winning the coin toss. Gay must have been in his head for him to toss that pick six to start the BEGINNING of the real game.

  72. 1sparkybuc Says:

    One kick out of three is not an outrageous demand

  73. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Neither is having a QB like Russell Wilson. When we tied the Seahawks Wilson didn’t need all these excuses..they win the toss and he wins the game.

    When is a game over? When do you have a chance to win and when don’t you?

    Hint…at the start of any OT you still have a chance to win and a better than average chance if you have a true NFL QB.

    You have NO chance to win if your QB opens with a pick six!

  74. 1sparkybuc Says:

    The great Tom Brady ended his season with a pick six, and he didn’t have a fractured thumb..

  75. Jmarkbuc Says:


    Seriously? Brady’s six rings and 43 years trump JW’s BS..

  76. TexBuc Says:

    Seems we have people stumping against the incumbent and some for. Winston will calm down as he ages he is only 26 yrs a few days ago. Seems to start games too pumped up, so we need to run some QB run plays for Winston to calm him down in the first series.

  77. Jmarkbuc Says:


    Same old, same old….


  78. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Brady always had protection, a decent ground attack, and a solid defense. Jameis has rarely had any of that. In the last eight games he had a decent defense and he won five of them.

  79. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Brady’s coaches were just a little bit better as well.

    G-Rome? Amen and amen again.

    Adam from NY…ubercoaster. That pun is brilliant. Keep ’em coming. I’m lovin’ it.
