Clyde Christensen: Jameis Coached To Lead

February 28th, 2020

Just worry about playing football; that’s not what America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, was told last season.

Buccaneers quarterback coach Clyde Christensen was hanging out by Joe’s table at Radio Row this week at the NFL Scouting Combine and talking about, what else, quarterback play.

The veteran coach explained that a franchise QB needs to be the driving force of the organization. From players to sales people and the receptionist at team headquarters feed off the quarterback.

“And that’s one of the things we stress with our quarterback, ‘December, hey, everyone’s hitting the wall. It’s been a long [season]. You have to walk in the building and bring juice,'” Christensen said. “Because the whole city feeds off you. That’s part of the job.”

Interesting to hear how that’s been drilled into Jameis by the Bucco Bruce Arians regime.

Was Jameis good at that role? Joe isn’t sure, though Christensen told Joe that Jameis is the ultimate student: humble and hard-working with an energetic, yes-sir attitude at all times.

    Remind me…when has Jameis led the team from behind to win…

  3. ATrain Says:

    Jamies sucked at that Job with the Fans

    EVANS is a driving force with the fans

    The whole Defensive line is a driving force with the fans

    Jamies acts like He is King and we should bow

    Jamies would have a whole lot more backing from Fans if he wasn’t a Jerk
    And yes I have seen it several times in person

    He’s America’s Groper. It’s IMPOSSIBLE for everyone to look up to him as a leader. A “leader” who was accused of ra*e? A leader who was suspended for a quarter of a season for grabbing her by the p? A leader who eats W’s and starts fights from the sidelines while in street clothes? A leader who steals seafood? A leader who thinks he’s getting away with slamming a defender’s head to the turf after the play? A leader who starts, and finishes his career with the Bucs with pick sixes?

  5. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Yeah, JayMiss ain’t that guy.

  6. Craig Says:

    Sounds like Jameis was going old school and ended up with Snoop Dog’s Gin and Juice instead of the kind of juice Clyde was discussing. The part of Jameis being humble and hard-working kills me.

  7. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    ^^ Why does that kill you? By literally ALL accounts of anyone asked, that is the case.

  8. BigHog Says:

    Leader of this pack! BUCS 2020!!!

  9. Morgus the Magnificent Says:

    Wow…looks like my post was deleted by Joe for referencing Winston’s past.

  10. Fb Moderated! Says:

    So was josh Freeman. Anybody getting paid that much will act like they are hard working. But working hard is different from working smart or efficiently

  11. Fb Moderated! Says:

    Morgus, you have been moderated by America’s joe bucs fan “reporter/lobbyist”

  12. Fb Moderated! Says:

    Actually Morgus, you have been censored for the good of jameis by the fascist America’s joe bucs fan media czar. Join team Steve for a logical democratic treatment of the joe bucs fan fans!

  13. thisisouryear!! Says:

    With Jameis off the field issues, it’s hard for him to be the face of the team to the public which as the QB he needs to be. People can say that’s in the past, but actions have consequences. That being said winning would go a long way to him getting support.

  14. AKickInTheBucNuts Says:

    “Clyde Christensen: Jameis Coached To Lead”

    Yeah. To lead in interceptions.

  15. Defense Rules Says:

    Isn’t there an old saying about ‘Being caught between a rock & a hard spot’? That must’ve been Jameis last season. All of us have played sports at various points in our lives and know that a player, in any sport, who consistently screws something up rarely is looked at as ‘The Man’ from a leadership standpoint. Players may not say it, but more than likely they were thinking ‘Damned, there he goes again’ every time Jameis threw an INT (30) or fumbled the ball (12 with 5 lost).

  16. LaMarcus Says:

    When the last time a Buc player was a face of anything but losing?

    He might have a better chance in NE in a winning atmosphere

  17. Morgus the Magnificent Says:

    …and make NO mistake…..Winston’s well-documented past ABSOLUTELY affects how people in the organization look at him, as a “leader”

  18. LaMarcus Says:

    Defense rules

    Same goes for JW. He probably goes ” Damn kicker missed again” or ” defense giving away the last drive of the game”

    Newsflash we are not a qb away from winning. Let’s start with getting a new kicker. That A hole needs to go

  19. LaMarcus Says:


    Your smoking meth. You need to detox before coming here. Jw has moved forward like they the way you snort your stuff

  20. BrianBucs Says:

    So the entire town and fan base feeds off of the QB?
    That must be why the stadium is always at least half empty and the fan base is shrinking

  21. IAMHIM Says:

    I really think that most of you guys is on here to crack jokes most you guys knows nothing about football at all and it’s really funny

  22. MTM Says:

    America’s poor decision maker is not a leader. Just like he’s not leaving Tampa and going on to win a Super Bowl. Child please…

    Sir, you quite obviously know nothing about me, so I suggest you stay within the minuscule universe of knowledge to which is accessible to you.

    Then stop smoking the stuff and getting on the comment board.

    By “all accounts” he was. All I am saying is beware the sales pitch. He may be working hard, but if he ain’t learning, then you have another problem.

  28. BucsFIRE Says:

    Understood. But I have a lot more respect for someone who puts as much into it as Jameis does, as opposed to Josh Freeman, who could not care less.

  29. Formerly Tampa 2 Says:

    The only thing Winston has led Tampa bay to is losses. He is, and will always be, a student that doesn’t quite grade out.

  30. Sorryjackchuckiesback Says:

    Winston is the ONLY guy Joe will give the “he tried hard” pass too!!! Everyone else it’s “aaaaahhhhh I don’t wanna hear that he tries hard stuff” but when it comes to his betrothed, crowned King (of losing) he makes every excuse in the book for the guy!! I can’t even count how many reasons Winston throws picks anymore?? How about the simple truth is that he’s not elite!! And you can win with a regular QB who’s not elite… But not one that turns the ball over like him!!! …… But at least he works hard and tries hard… Right hypocrite? I mean Joe? Lol

    When I first started posting on JBF as an avowed anti-America’s Groper, the attacks from your ilk were frequent, personal, and now-obviously from FSU homers (of which there are many). But over the last year or so, the tide of comments has swung precipitously in favor of my views of the Groper. So therefore, if you wish to “be so lucky” you must enjoy a sort of masochistic indulgence to visit this site with any frequency.

  33. Mister Negative Nancy Says:

    You can’t be a leader when you are costing games, plain and simple.

    Derrick Brooks or Warren Sapp were team leaders, because to start with everybody respected their play.

  34. BucsFIRE Says:

    ^^ lol, who said anything about Jameis?
    It was just a general commentary.

  35. Defense Rules Says:

    Lamarcus … “That A hole ” kicker was a rookie who missed 8 FGs on the year out of 35 attempts. He missed more than 1 FG in a game exactly once … the very last game of the season (when he missed 3). Matt has lots of promise IMO, and it’s disappointing to hear any JBFer call him an ‘A hole’ because of that Atlanta game performance & probably his missing 1 kick in the Giants game.

    I’d feel the same way BTW about anyone who called Jameis an ‘A hole’ for throwing multiple interceptions in multiple games this past season.

  36. Craig Says:


    Jameis is humble: He gets in the face of his coaches when he screws up and someone calls him on it.

    Have you seen the footage of his outreach to elementary schools? Where he tells girls to sit down and watch?

    How about eating some “Ws”?

    Jameis is hard working:
    First into the film room and last out, they all say. How come he can’t read a defense, hasn’t learned to look off a linebacker or not to stare down receivers, hasn’t learned to look for open receivers.

    If you say it was because of his eyes, answer why he didn’t wear contacts. Half of the other players do wear contacts, some even wear these thing called sport glasses.

  37. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Craig says”
    “First into the film room and last out, they all say.”


    No one has ever said that.

    The eating W’s thing, while silly as all get out, has nothing whatsoever to do with being humble or hard working.

    The outreach commentary is a stretch. He was talking to a group of boys that were acting out. No one can really question where JW’s heart is at, when it comes to working with ALL kids. — Not sure what it has to do with being humble or hard working. He certainly is hard working, when it comes to the kids, as well.

    Hey if you don’t like him, that is your prerogative.
    I couldn’t care less.

    But there are great traits that the young man does have. No need to try to take them all away just because you don’t like him.

    Been a fan since 76 and I have seen us let go of so many quarterbacks that went and won it all with their new team and Winston will be no different. I believe he can be the guy who makes up for Doug Williams.
