A Sad Tale Of The Tape

March 7th, 2020

Joe often calls ESPN “BSPN” because the network churns out a healthy share of BS on various fronts, but certainly not all the time.

One thing BSPN does well is compile statistical data. They’ve got all kind of professional stat gremlins (not the PFF kind) assembling spreadsheets to track everything.

Yesterday, a six-year producer known for Twittering data shared this Jameis Winston dark cloud. It’s so dark it even would be difficult for the most ardent Jameis supporter to write off as gibberish.

Obviously, the “clean pocket” number is eye-popping. How is “clean pocket” defined? Joe’s not sure. Heck, Joe’s not sure of anything any longer after Bucco Bruce Arians told the nation last week that he has as solid running game in place.

  1. Pete I Says:

    Sources close to the team said that the frequency of Winston’s interceptions became a running joke between certain members of the coaching staff and they would occasionally try to guess when those interceptions would occur.

  2. Pete I Says:

    Jameis is the most! It says so right after every stat!!

  3. Pete I Says:

    Jameis is the hostess with the mostess…giving away free turnovers for every occasion.

  4. Pete I Says:

    You can never go wrong with a Jameis Winston turnover… 1 out of every 4 is a take it to the house special.

    Less than 10 seconds in the oven and you and 10 of your best friends can celebrate after taking it to the house.

  5. MTM Says:

    Winston nut huggers are curled up in a bath tub crying right now after reading these stats.

  6. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    There are some statistics missing…….may not matter but I’d like to know how he did when leading……how about 1st down…….home interceptions…..away interceptions….
    The answer to these may be the same…..

  8. SteelStudBuc Says:

    1st quarter?

  9. SickofLosing Says:

    OUCH! Those are some really damming stats. I personally keep waffling between bringing him back next year and starting over at the qb position. He can’t be that bad in year 2 in the system, right? But from watching the games, its obvious he stares down recievers, and is too indecisive at times. The receivers are open and he doesn’t throw on time resulting in a pick. Or he locks on to ME or Godwin and its an easy read for the defender.

    It’s a Buc’s life

  10. Bird Says:


    Cmon. You know his clean pocket region?
    The Pitt game

  11. Bird Says:

    Wait wait Still HOF
    Cmon lamarcus

  13. gotbbucs Says:

    After all of those damning numbers, let’s get into semantics and try to define “clean pocket”. Good lord, the dude was a laughing stock and we’re trying to decide how clean a pocket needs to be in order to be defined as “clean”.

    In Winston’s defense, he threw 30 interceptions, so there isnt much of a chance that he doesnt lead the league in every statistical category related to interceptions. The seven pick-6’s though is really impressive. That and the first posession interceptions almost weekly….okay, maybe bi-weekly. If you cant be known for being great, you might as well be known for the opposite of great.

    In a day and age where QB’s are protected almost to the detriment of the game, and defensive backs are barely allowed to touch receivers, this guy managed to throw more interceptions with a “clean pocket”, (however you define that doesn’t matter) than any other QB did for total interceptions on the year.
    He threw 25 interceptions with a “clean pocket”, and also managed to take 47 sacks. He can’t find the easy completions, he never has been able to. This isn’t a Bruce Arians offensive scheme issue, this is a Jameis Winston issue. He’s had to make “spectacular” plays on occasion because he’s slow with progressions and can’t get to his easy reads before the rush gets to him.
    Basically after five years in the NFL, he’s no better at the QB position today than he was on day one. The first pass of his career was a pick-6, and the last play of his fifth year was a pick-6. It’s almost poetic.

  14. Pewter power Says:

    Yea he’ll go somewhere else and win a super bowl hahahahaha. Apparently he must be going to a team with zero weaknesses except at quarterback because oh course Tampa is the only team with deficiencies here will have to overcome which is why it’s everyone else fault Winston is so bad

  15. gotbbucs Says:


  16. Jameis #1 Fan Says:

    Betta Check Ya Sheet!

  17. ModHairKen Says:

    You forgot pick sixes to end games. Tied with Brady? Ironic both of their last passes in the first team’s stadiums ended in pick sixes to lose.

  18. Oneilbucs Says:

    Man I hope they move on from Jamies . Because we will be in the superbowl with next guy. Clean pockets lol lol he was the most hit quarterback in the NFL . He was second most sacked quarterback in the NFL . This offense got big Ben Roethlisberger hit a lot and his offensive line was great . Lol lol just let him walk please . Because I’m tired of the excuses and blaming him for all the losses when this hold team and fan base sucks .

  19. Pewter power Says:

    That’s a mic drop for donovan Smith and Dotson who are easily the worst on the o line. To compete we need a homerun at tackle, one for this year and personally I wish we could swap d smith for trent Williams then draft a right tackle

  20. OneBuc55 Says:

    Don’t worry guys we have BA the QB whisperer…

    Hopefully he figured out last season that you can’t whisper to your QB while sitting in a golf cart…

    Pretty much says it all……………

    “In Winston’s defense, he threw 30 interceptions….”


    I totally understand where you went next in that comment.
    But you just cut that line out and take a LOOK at it….

    LOL!! – It’s almost too much to believe.
    What a roller coaster this has been… for ALL of us.

  23. Destinjohnny Says:

    Back up

  24. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Yes, there was bad. We know that. The numbers show that (interceptions in 2019, fumbles).
    There was also good. We should know that. The numbers show that (TD’s, passing yards in 2019).
    I don’t write this looking for an argument, the people that say turnovers usually lose you football games are correct. To say that Jameis can’t cut down on turnovers in his second year in BA’s offense is conjecture, IMHO.

  25. DoooshLaRue Says:

    I just checked my sheet……

    Says JayMiss still sucks hard.

  26. #1 Pick QB 2 Cent Brain Says:

    But it’s the coaches fault…

    I’m still waiting for word to come out of another team that’s gonna give him 25-30 million

  27. Bobby M. Says:

    He’s Ryan Fitzpatrick…..he’ll start somewhere at some point, might find his way to a playoff season or two, but the body of work will be somewhere between 7-9 and 9-7.

  28. Defense Rules Says:

    @gotbbucs … “Basically after five years in the NFL, he’s no better at the QB position today than he was on day one.”

    Actually gotbbucs, Jameis really only REGRESSED in 2 stats between his 1st year (2015) and his 5th year (2019) … GIVEAWAYS & SACKS. But those are both drive killers. And yes, they’re WHOPPERS.

    o 2015: 312-for-535 (58.3%) for 4,042 yards & 22 TDs. Yards/catch 13.2 & yards/game of 252.6. Rushed 54 times for 213 yards & 6 TDs. Took 27 sacks (sack rate 4.8%). Had 15 INTs (2.8%) & 6 fumbles.

    o 2019: 380-for-626 (60.7%) for 5,109 yards & 33 TDs. Yards/catch 13.4 & yards/game of 319.3. Rushed 59 times for 250 yards & 1 TD. Took 47 sacks (sack rate 7.0%). Had 30 INTs (4.8%) and 12 fumbles.

    The biggest difference between those 2 years? A different offensive scheme. Parts of it Jameis adjusted very well to (the deep throws?). Other parts ate him alive at times apparently (different progressions & different decision-making requirements?). The biggest question that remains IMO is ‘Can Jameis adjust & improve going forward?’ That’s obviously for BA to answer, but I think he can. Big element of risk there, and it’s certainly not worth $30 mil. But it may well be worth $20-$25 mil IF we sign a quality backup to help mitigate that risk. I’d hate to see a replay of 2019’s 30 INTs.

  29. Couch Fan Says:

    The first 2 numbers tell you all you need to know about Jameis. We need a new starting QB if we want to go anywhere relevant. Its ridiculous that the fan boys are ok being laughed at by the commentators every week because of Winston. And im sure the rest of the league laughs at him as well.

  30. whats the bucs plan 2020 Says:

    what a cluster fluck

  31. D1 Says:

    Joe in Michigan,

    “To say winston can’t cut down on his ints, is conjecture.”

    As is , He will improve dramatically in year 2 . .

    The difference is I’ve not seen one fan make the first comment.
    The latter, is a danmed mantra at this point.

    Both are opinions. But there’s way more certainty with he will improve year 2 , crowd.

  32. Ndog Says:

    What I find funny is that every possible negative stat about Jameis goes national yet any positive stat seems to get hidden deep in the depths. Take a look at 3 down conversion %, red zone, scramble yardage. But I know those don’t fit the narrative of him being HORRIBLE so of course ESPN simply ignores them. Is it clear by now that the media clearly has a hatered for this player?

    I mean for example I could sit here all day and say Shaq was number 2 in the entire league in off sides penalities and ignore his positive traits and he wouldn’t quite look the same would he? Or how about the lack of sacks by Suh just looking at those and he looks like trash if I just ignore his dominance against the run. Or look at Mike Evans horrible YAC and ignore all the great catches he makes. I could go on and on but you get the point. Every player has both positives and negatives yet with Jameis the focus is always on the negatives, ask yourself why.

    See this is what is simply wrong, people constantly dig up and talk about things Jameis does wrong but NEVER point what he does right. How can people not see that? It is so clear how they treat players different based upon what they want.

  33. stpetebucsfan Says:

    AGAIN…can a JW lover or hater or in betweener like me answer the fundamental question.

    IF we accept all that is in the public domain about JW…he is very smart…Stanford recruit…high football IQ according to many who should know…cannon arm..should have played baseball..works as hard as any player on the team…again according to many credible sources…is a popular teammate…has a heart the size of a lion and the cojones to go with it..

    SO…IF you accept all this as true and I do…what is the explanation. This issue has extended now through two different organizations..FSU and the Bucs…through more than a dozen coaches if you count QB coaches and coordinators….there is only ONE COMMON DENOMINATOR…through it all JW made bad decisions and turned the ball over at RECORD SETTING levels.

    ONE thing has been consistent through ALL of this. Stop looking for the freaking excuses!!! He has earned his ATM nickname. What part of this are we not getting?

    Yeah he may stop choking in 2020 and become a great player. He DOES have all the tools!!!! I do not honestly know if choking is terminal or if guys can cure that condition.

  34. Bill Ragu Says:

    Any other team would already have publicly stated they’re moving on from failure. Jason Licht and the Glazer trust fund babies have a coach that spews their propaganda. I expect Jamoist to be back and the losing and excuses continue. It’s a Bucs life. #NoPlayoffs

  35. LaMarcus Says:

    In defense of JW ……. he taking directions from the man named Byron Leftwich. We should have our answer right there. Yes. I see why the owners were pissed at BA for hiring Leftwich to coach JW.

  36. SteveK Says:


    Penalties are like “stubbing your toe”.

    Turnover are like “cutting your foot off”.

    A team doesn’t lose possession and though less likely, can overcome a penalty. However, a turnover leaves you up ish creek without a paddle.

    Do you think penalties are worse than turnovers? What about Jameis’ false start percentage as pointed out by mike Tennenbaum.

    Also, Shaq obtained the most sacks in the league, while playing for the number one rush defense. Look at the RBs we held in check this year and think about how Shaq got his while not giving up the booty.

    Jameis’ stats are fool’s gold bc of the price of which they come to accrue.

    Shaq is a monster and you must realize that the NFL sack leader on the best rush defense is ballin his arse off.

  37. Brion Says:

    Its still BSPN logic. If you throw 30 interceptions you are, of course, going to lead the league in virtually every game situation in which you parse them down. It would be of more statistic if there was one in which he did not lead the league.

  38. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Nothing to swagger about here.

  39. soggy Says:

    The minute we get rid of this bozo I am going to toss one off..

  40. Hethrew 30 Says:

    I’d posted the same data yesterday and offered comments. This is indeed startling info. It is not just the clean pocket stat that is eye-popping. Consider (and I will again say) in addition to the above, Maybe he has trouble with zones? Man? No, he has trouble reading the field PERIOD. And he leads the league in throwing them on 3rd down (he’s a drive killer) and in the 4th quarter…he’s a game killer. The first overall pick at five years in with the best receiver corps in the NFL should be going down the field and winning games on the final drive. He’s not doing that nearly enough.

    Being the MOST in any category is alarming. Being MOST in all of them is shamefully embarassing and is a flashing red danger light to stay away from paying this guy to run your team.

  41. Craig Says:

    Every line item tells of at least one deficiency in the Jameis game.

    The clean pocket problem means that he holds the ball too long.

    The one possession problem says that he can’t stick with a plan. The first series is scripted and he is off script.

    The WR problem means he is forcing the ball

    The 19 when trailing talks about the holes he digs for the team

    All of the rest of them are permutations of his inability to read the defense.

    How can you fix all of that? It looks to be an impossible task when you look at this past season. Jameis finally got some accuracy in the longer ball. To pay for that his short game fell apart. He couldn’t throw an accurate out route at all.

    Wave goodbye, please.

  42. Ivan The Insider Says:


    Many Jameis-lovers on this site like Mr. Ndog, think Jameis’ 5,000+ yards and 30+ TDs tell the story that Jameis Winston is one of the best QBs in the NFL and the Bucs would be dumb to not resign him to a long-term contract.

    Compared to Jameis Winston’s stats last season, how about a different QB that would put up these stats…

    4,926 Passing Yards
    34 TD Passes
    24 INTs
    66.7% Completion Rate
    100.3 Avg. QB Rating

    Would you say that QB is better or worse or very similar to Winston’s 2019 Season?
    The INTs are definitely lower, the completion % is higher, and the QB rating is higher.

    Logic would dictate that’s a BETTER QB and a BETTER SEASON than the one Winston had in 2019.

    Ready To Discover Who This Mystery QB Is???

    Drumroll please…

    Mr. Ryan Fitzpatrick.

    These are Fitzpatrick’s pro-rated stats over the entire 2018 season if he had started all games; extrapolating his 7.5 games he did play in, and take his stats (good and bad) and projecting them out to an entire season.

    And this was without Chris Godwin starting across from Mike Evans for better consistency.

    So PLEASE all your Jameis lovers… go on and tell us how Jameis is the only QB that can put up big numbers on this Offense.

    That is 100% MYTH.

    There are many QBs that can come in and from Day One put up big numbers like Jameis with this same Offense, and most likely do so with fewer INTs and fumbles and produce more WINS.

    Game. Set. Match.

  43. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Speaking of “choking”. I’m old school. I hate to use this term. I was embarrassed for JW when BA explicitly and PUBLICLY made sure we had NO competition for JW on the 2019 Bucs because ??? trying to help JW’s battered confidence after ’18?

    Again the old school guys I cheered for growing up would not have enjoyed that at all…they would have WANTED the competition because they were COMPETITORS!!! They would have resented even the thought of a job being “handed” to them much less stated so publicly.

    So if we bring JW back just know what we’re hoping for…not that he has enough talent…he clearly does…that he’s smart enough…he is…that he’s motivated, tough, hard working enough…he is all those things already. He cannot improve.

    So it’s all about JW”s head. If you feel good about that..he’s finally going to turn that corner…great…if you are worried “excitable” (old schoolers can insert “choker” here) Jameis is always lurking right around the corner…not so much. That is the gamble BA must consider.

  44. Tye Says:

    ‘Turnover Machine’s
    Not because of a few picks but because of the alarming amount at the worst times…
    And the high number in a CLEAN pocket, can’t blame the line!

  45. TOM Says:

    YADA YADA YADA & Winsome is gone.

  46. RGA Says:

    Winston rarely has a clean pocket.

  47. RGA Says:

    Can’t blame the line? No running game and sacked 47 times? Who is responsible for that?

  48. Tval Says:

    “Bspn” or “secspn” lol!!
    Says it all when it comes to Jameis.
    Theyve HAD IT OUT since day one.
    Haters drive the, sensationalistic, market and this clown now has more white fans in Tampa than Jameis. Lol!!!!!!!!!
    You clowns would have cut Favre, Elway, Moon, Cunningham(mvp minnesota) and Donovan. Shows how many losers are Bucs fans. Mutually exclusive? Hehehehehehehee!!!

  49. Tval Says:

    Truth hurts a HATER, rga.
    They can chew on that one and enjoy their FRANCHISE qb, or, go cheer for fitztragic. Lmao!!!!

  51. Adrnagy Says:

    Wow… so his totals for 2019 were like 90+ int …

    Dumbest article., of course is going to lead the league in all or most categories.

    Pull up favre
    Pull up your brains !

    Unfortunately, that is sadly true.

    Mostly winston

  54. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Hethrew 30 Says:
    “He has trouble reading the field PERIOD.”


    This is the element that concerned me MOST about last season. There are still so many people that talk about his “poor decision-making”, and yet for the most part, the “stupid decision – trying to make something out of nothing” picks have gone down to a degree.

    The picks now are either just bad throws, or YES (as you say) field reading errors.

    How do you suddenly fix that?

    I have always been a Jameis fan, but we have to be honest here. This is a concern for me too.

  55. Ndog Says:

    So one question if Jameis is why we lose games why did we lose the Giants game, 1st Saints game, and Seattle games? And better yet why were even in OT vs the Falcons?

  56. 541BucsFan Says:

    I’d like to see when his league leading fumbles occurred as well.

  57. gotbbucs Says:


    Ok, now pull up the literal dozens and dozens of QB’s that didn’t end up being HOF caliber QB’s that had high interception years. You know, the guys that nobody remembers or cares to remember anymore.

    That’s like saying for a few plays this year, Donovan Smith looked like Joe Thomas or Jonathan Ogden. So that must mean Donovan Smith is a future HOFer, right?

  58. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Craig Says:
    “He couldn’t throw an accurate out route at all.”


    A lot of what you said made absolute sense. I did disagree with this comment. I thought he threw a TON of great out routes this year, and does every year. It accounts for a lot of his overall production. — He definitely threw a couple of bad ones near the end of the year though, that resulted in pick 6’s.

  59. BA Redzone Says:

    Yep, those are stats are KNARLY ugly. But if we end season 9-7/10-6, different focus. So in addition to JW TO’s, let’s share some blame.

    Start w BA. Giants game, JW gets us down the field at end of game. What does our coach do? Try to put ball in end zone? Use one of our stud RBs? (oops, skip that one). Nope. He backs us up 5 yards for our rookie kicker. Doink – yep, JW stats killed us here. TN game – BA throws another stupid challenge flag for pass interference, just to make a point. Can’t challenge a fumble later. And vs Seattle, on the road, yeah JW sucked. Oops, Offense shines. Our D never got on the plane.

    Lot of blame for the crappy season, and the guy who touches the ball every play, is going to get too much credit when winning, and too much blame when losing. Bring on the next guy. Let’s see what he can do. At least 10 INTs in this offensive biscuit scheme. It will be interesting next year.

  60. Erik Hesson - Fine Artist - City of St Pete Says:

    Don’t forget the most Pick-6’s in the History of the NFL.

  61. WestChap Says:

    The answer to why he does this with all his innate talents boils down down to one word: SLOW. He just processes slower… he’s smart enough and talented enough to get to the 100% correct “answer” but too slowly to actually execute that answer. He knows this about himself and has coping mechanisms that include locking on to a target but doing so makes him predictable.

    This directly leads to more picks, more sacks… and also more scrambles and more jump ball throws. The only solution is to ask less of him but he makes that hard by asking for too much money… and his flaws may be such that even if you put him in an otherwise perfect situation (Tennessee/Tannehill or SF/Garrapolo) there’s no guarantee he wouldn’t do more harm than good with turnovers during those few times you asked him to make a play.

  62. Pewter power Says:

    No you cant blame the line for winston trying to extend every busted play of a game instead of throwing away or just running when it’s not there. To say the run game is at fault when dropping back to pass the ball Is just stupid.

    It’s pointless to blame coaching hindsight because there is no perfect game plan so it’s up to players to adjust the play or be better than the other guys.

    No one is calling out coaches for bad playcalling like Seattle players did on the last play of the superbowl against the Patriots. That’s a bad play call so stop with the excuses.

    Even if we were 9-7 and pulled out a couple wins ba would be smart to try for better than all Winston head scratching turnovers. Even when stats like this shine a light on the obvious Winston nuthuggers still come out and try to blame everyone else for his pathetic decision making skills

  63. Hethrew 30 Says:

    Ndog…answer to your qeustions: Because of Winston. Had Winston taken his team to the end zone more often the field goals would not be required. Had Winston done more to put this team on his shoulders as the first overall pick and take them down the field to the end zone, and no rely on a low round rookie kicker to win for him, those games would have been won.

  64. Hethrew 30 Says:

    ^^^But oh yes, the rookie kicker is an issue to watch for sure. Will he gat the same breaks Winston had for five years? Will they give him the rope they gave Winston? I doubt it. Nor should they. And they should not have given Winston the rope he got. We see what he did with it.

  65. Crabby Fan Says:

    I can understand why some JW fans may think he’s being picked on more than his team mates regarding penalties and turnovers…

    The one thing to keep in mind is the position JW holds at QB. This position will garner the majority of criticism and accolades because of the responsibility it requires.

    Along with the responsibility comes the associated pay for the services rendered from the highest profile on a football team.

    Good or bad the QB is the leader of the team on the field and shoulders the majority of blame when the team loses.

    With losses the QB will be under the microscope by both fans and media alike. Yes, the media and fans alike can be harsh at times but if they are given the ammunition such as glaring stats for turnovers from the leader of your team that would make it easier to do so.

    Many fans on this site are not JW haters but bucs fans looking for the biggest reason why their team is doing so bad. First check will always be the most consistent one rearing it’s ugly head.

    If a couple of stats are favorable and the majority are not that is what we have in front of us now.

    Go Bucs

  66. DalvinCookRules Says:

    Jameis Winston throws a lot of picks! Thanks for enlightening us.

  67. Defense Rules Says:

    Several JBFers have noted how frustrating the Pick-6s are. And yes, I agree … 7 Pick-6 in ONE year is not a good show. No way, no how. But Jameis doesn’t rank anyplace near the top of the list in that category after 5 years (he has 11 Pick-6s in that period). Some folks might be surprised at some of the names at the top of the Pick-6 list:

    1 – Brett Favre – 31 (20 years)
    2 – Dan Marino – 29 (17 years)
    3 – Joe Namath – 28 (13 years)
    4 – Drew Brees – 27 (19 years)
    5 – Peyton Manning – 27 (18 years)
    6 – Philip Rivers – 24 (16 years)
    7 – Carson Palmer – 23 (14 years)

    In his first 4 years, Jameis ‘only’ had 4 Pick-6, and so in a 20-year career he might’ve not even ranked in the Top-10. But then ballooned last year with an incredible 7 Pick-6s. And because of that bizarre year, he’s now averaging a tad over 2 Pick-6 per year. So did Joe Willie Namath. Peyton Manning averaged 1.5 Pick-6 per year, and so did Brett Favre & Philip Rivers. Drew Brees comes close to that, while Dan Marino & Carson Palmer averaged over 1.5 Pick-6 per year.

    I seems like those who throw the ball a LOT end up with more Pick-6s than others. Wow, what a revelation. Jameis led the NFL last year not just in INTs, but also in Passing Attempts (626). Add in his sacks, and he dropped back for 673 total passing attempts.

    So let me see if I’ve got this right. You take a QB who’s known for throwing INTs and you put him in the situation where he has to throw a LOT MORE passes. And in that situation he has no significant running game, and oh ya, make sure that his TEs are primarily used as blockers. And just for good measure, throw in a mediocre pass-blocking OLine and receivers not named Evans & Godwin who seem to be reluctant to catch the football. Hmmm, what could possibly go wrong.

  68. Slugglife Says:

    “They ignore all the good he does and only focus on the negative.”

    Hmm. Reminds me of another well known figure who gets the same treatment. What say you NDog?

    I am convinced that NDog is our old friend NOSBOS.

    Dak Prescott just was given $105 million guaranteed.

    I guess Winston will be offered the same because he was “Ballin'” last year?

    Ha Ha Ha.

    NFL coaches and GM’s (people who generally know much more than we do about football) are NOT lining up to pay Winston that kind of money. I wonder why?

    Again, Ha Ha Ha.

    Let him go! I am team Jameis. Fan since 1976. It is a curse to be a Buccaneers fan. I leave when Jameis leave when Jameis leaves. After the way the Buccaneers treated Jameis, I am not a fan of the Buccaneers. The Bucs will always be what they have always been. A losing team without fans outside of Tampa. I meet and deal with people all over the world. Buccaneers do not have many fans.

    When I attended the LA game last year it appeared that at least 25% of the attendee’s were wearing Bucs gear, most of them were sporting #3

    If JW is gone next year I’m still a Bucs fan(unless they bring in the kneeler)

    Winston will be our QB.

    After the way the Bucs treated Jameis???

    He was accused of rape and they still drafted him #1 overall and made him set for life financially.

    He did some stupid and sexual assaulted and Uber driver and they kept him on the team when many organizations would have cut him due to his past.

    Year in and year out he has led the league in turnovers yet only benched ONCE in his career so far because Fitzpatrick was playing so well. Other than that, Jameis has been given more 2nd, 3rd, and 4th chances than arguably anyone.

    Even when he played like trash and lost games, the Bucs continue to believe in him and let him start.

    So how in the world have the Buccaneers treated Winston badly? They treated him more than fair.

    Oh… they are treating him badly NOW because they may not want to bring him back?

    That’s not treating someone badly, that’s FOOTBALL. For all the big numbers Jameis puts up he’s a LIABILITY. He gives the opposing team great starting field position, game in and game out. He’s DIRECTLY responsible for many losses. Not solely responsible for all losing, of course, but he has heavily contributed for sure.

    Please leave when Jameis leaves. We don’t need fans like you.

    NO other teams fans are talking about having Jameis as their starting QB in 2020 and half of the Bucs fans don’t want him…….that should tell you ALL you need to know…last years contract was Jameis biggest and will go down as his highest NFL annual salary !

  81. cmurda Says:

    Obviously, the “clean pocket” number is eye-popping. How is “clean pocket” defined?

    Doesn’t matter Joe. it’s defined the same for every QB and every other QB managed to not be the “most”.

    Jameis has been picking the Glazers pocket clean!

  83. John Mason Says:

    What will the Winstonites do once Winston is gone?

  84. 941bucsfan Says:

    lol @ clean pocket… Watch the first 10 picks and you realize that the clean pocket is the most inaccurate

  85. OneBuc55 Says:


    Thanks for breaking down Winstons ints like that…
    The bottom line is, Jameis had no business leading the league in pass attempts imho; thats on the coaching staff…
    You don’t ask a young banged up gunslinger in a new offense with no threat of a running game and a half-way decent offensive line at best to drop back 670+ times and expect a happy ending..not to mention, your rockstar HC/QB guru/Play-caller decides not to call plays anymore…

  86. Mike in Trinity Says:

    He also had the most attempts in every one of those scenarios. His season was bad but not that bad. You can spin it however you want but two things are for sure. Unlike a lot of other QB’s he has the heart of a lion and his ceiling is so much higher than any other quarterback that could currently replace him.

  87. Wesley Says:


  88. Kgh4life Says:

    25 with a clean pocket? That’s damning evidence that after 5 years Winston still has trouble reading defenses and the oline was doing it’s job.

    This is the kind of trashy fans we do not need nor want. Adios. See ya. Don’t come back. I loathe people like you. You’re a bottom feeder and probably an FSU fan. Just a loser. Period. We do not need losers like above. Cull the herd. I’m fine with it.

  90. DB55 Says:

    Define clean pocket bc there’s absolutely no way he had 23 picks from a “clean” pocket. I’d say he threw 25 TDs from a dirty pocket. The man rarely has a clean pocket and when he does he lights teams up.

  91. unbelievable Says:


    And what about 1st quarter / opening drive? That has to be the most as well.

    Not gonna lie, having the most INTs against both zone and man coverage is impressive! Lol.

  92. DB55 Says:

    Had to go back and watch the tape. Again, please define a clean pocket bc I don’t see it.


  93. Mister Negative Nancy Says:

    Who cares if you are first if your INT % isn’t that high (it is with Winston though). Bottom line, that metric of “most” in those categories is pretty meaningless if your team is throwing it more than anybody.
