Jameis Says Goodbye

March 21st, 2020

Jameis Winston has taken to Twitter and has a message — a Super Bowl message.

The unemployed America’s Quarterback publicly acknowledged this morning that he won’t be wearing pewter and red in 2020. He also made it clear that he’s got his eyes on playing in Super Bowl LV, which will be played at the Den of Depression in February 2021.

Perhaps more statements are coming today from Jameis, some that will express his love of Bucs fans, teammates, coaches, ownership and the business community that supported his charitable endeavors.

Or perhaps not.

Joe wishes Jameis well.

    First pass as a Buc – pick 6.

    Last pass as a Buc – pick 6.

    How symbolic…

  2. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    “Unemployed America’s QB”……..perhaps cynical, now seems cruel….just can’t let it go….
    Sure,it’s your site…..you have the right to print what you wish….and many may not be bothered by it….but I am.

  3. Matt Says:

    He played his heart out for us and I appreciate and respect him for that. That final “check yo sheet” outburst was very classless and really shows he STILL doesn’t really get it. Before that outburst I would have actually rooted for him wherever he went but now it’s like “K, thx, bye”

  4. Johnny Says:

    It just didn’t work out. Best of luck, no hard feelings from me. Move on.

  5. MadMax Says:

    A backup…but good luck.

  6. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Guess he’s hanging on to his suite?

    Lol, see you in February….check yo voicemails JW..crickets.

  7. Patrickbucs Says:

    Exactly Johnny

  8. Couch Fan Says:

    I wonder if he thinks he thinks he was still ballin? Its pretty clear what the rest of the league thinks. Regardless thanks for the blood, sweat, tears and years. Shame you couldn’t get the turnovers under control. Best of luck to ya.

  9. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Matt, you and so many others are ridiculous about that one statement. He was humble almost every time he got on that podium. One statement out of 100s was the wrong message but give me a freaking break. He did ball last year by leading the league in passing and 2nd in TDs. He knows he threw a lot of picks too.

  10. Youngbucs Says:

    Still delusional smh thts the problem

  11. Cgmaster27 Says:

    People in here proving lees point that half of you didnt want him from the jump. Show a little class you clowns, while he might not have worked out, he worked his ass off. Which is more tha most of you can say about sanything.

  12. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Best of luck, Jameis. Most polarizing Buccaneer of all time, until Brady signed his contract.

  13. VegasBuc Says:

    I was always a Jameis fan and supported him. He worked hard for this organization and gave everything he had on the field every week. Unfortunately, it didn’t amount to the results and demand this organization wants to win a championship. He’ll revive his career hopefully somewhere else. Always hoping the best for Jameis. He never talked trash or hated the fanbase in the same way they did to him. All the best to Jameis and his family.

  14. Youngbucs Says:

    By the way mike Evans Jameis has spoken you can come out of hiding now smh

  15. View from 132 Says:

    Seemed a good dude. Needs to go somewhere with a strong running game that throws 15 times a game, or take a backup role and just grow up a bit. To me he’s a case for staying in college longer more than anything. He was the #1 pick much too young. NFL starting QB is no joke for pressure.

  16. SOFIERCE Says:

    I guess a Bucs backup QB path is no more for Winston. Also, Selling potential as the real thing strategy didn’t pan out either.

    Note: Can we stop calling him America’s quarterback now? I get dizzy from all the eyeball rolling that occurs when I read that statement. Love your site though!

  17. Couch Fan Says:

    He didnt just throw a lot of picks. He led the league in picks. He threw more than anyone has in 30 years. That nullifies everything else he did and makes the “Im ballin” statement ridiculous. Anyone that thinks this is ballin, especially when you have the best WR due in the league to throw to, just isnt very smart.

  18. BigMacAttack Says:

    He’s such an idiot. Ask for $6 million to back up TB for 2 years. Learn from the master and dominate when he retires. Get that ring too bruh 😂

  19. Buc_You-2 Says:

    Jameis will be at Superbowl 55. Watching Tom Brady win it. 🙂

  20. BigMacAttack Says:

    Dude has millions already and I’m supposed to feel sorry for him. GTFO

  21. SOFIERCE Says:

    I said it before… Winston is like a TrackStar he will break the record for the fastest time but also knock down half the hurdles, which needs to be deducted from his time.

    You can’t win that way!

  22. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    It wasn’t for a lack of trying so I wish him well

  23. Adrnagy Says:


    At least he comes out and said bye. Bucs in the other hand stab you on the way out. Just like two face fans. Specially Bruce Arians.

  24. Matt Says:

    To be candid I think Jameis’ humble act is just that, AN ACT! His snippy short-winded “Just gotta get better and I will” answers to anyone who questions a play or his play in general. He never came off as sincere and those answers seemed rehearsed. He’s really arrogant but that’s his type of swagger and his personality so I don’t knock him, it’s just that act of him being snippy with reporters shows he’s not owning his mistakes and his play but just being defensive. Jameis isn’t obligated to explain what he was thinking or what he did on any particular play but I would have liked to seem him say “yeah we knew all week in practice they were playing cover 3 and I just knew the Square in to Evans was the best read. I stared him down and got to stop doing that because the robber who I wasnt even worried about cheated to that side and picked it off. I’m going to practice that play in my head 100 times each day and 10 times at practice each day so it never happens again.”

    Anything like that and we’re all like ok he gets it but he really doesn’t seem to care to fix those habits he just says “Ok get better” You only get better by making and committing to better mental habits and honestly addressing your mistakes and setting a plan of action to improve. It’s really amazing how he can throw 4 picks in a half and keep firing in there. I Wish him well but I’ll ball out with Brady now.

  25. FlBoy84 Says:


    That choice has to be a two-way street. Likely the team is done and has chosen to move on. Wise decision either way. As long as TB and the Bucs win, likely most anti-Tom fans come around. Our guys are going to have to get acclimated to the raised expectations and pressure to win every week that adding TB brings for certain though. Won’t be the same atmosphere around here once things get ramped up.

  26. passthebuc Says:

    An old adage

    When you get the message, hang up the phone

  27. '79 Defense Says:

    Thanks for your effort, Jameis. Your work ethic was incredible and your desire to win was something I wish every Buc possessed. Best of luck.

  28. Ghost of Darrell Henderson Says:

    “First pass as a Buc – pick 6.

    Last pass as a Buc – pick 6.”

    The second it happened, before that dude even crossed the goal line, it hit me.

    I’ve been a Buc fan since the beginning, this one hurt.

    I love Jameis.

    I just hope I live long enough to see his name on the Ring of Honor.

  29. Adam Lakers Carolla Says:

    Matt…you will “ball out with Brady now”? Can’t wait to see you on the field.

  30. firethecannons Says:

    I am certain Jameis understands the choice that BA made. He had his opportunity, only he can understand why he throws int’s to the extent he does and only he can fix it. He is responsible and he will learn. I hope he gets a new football home, he is so exciting to watch, hate to see his talent go to waste playing baseball.

  31. SteveK Says:



    Come on man. No one wishes I’ll will. Dude sucked on his own and lied about the suspension. If there was any backstabbing, he let down the fans and team and opened the door for Fitzmagic to expose him for what he is: a backup QB.

  32. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    America’s crab leg stealin’, gropin’, public cursin’, sexual assaulting clipboard holder. Good luck Jay Miss. I guess if you get a free ticket, you’ll be at next year’s Super Bowl in Tampa.
    There are few guarantees in life, but one is that Jay Miss will not be a starting QB in next year’s Super Bowl.

  33. Adrnagy Says:

    Make no mistake ! Ever game is a WIN expected. Stats have to be off the chart !
    And the two face clown head coach cannot make mistakes !

    No penalties allowed! Bruce said it Brady makes everyone better.

    I’m looking at nfc championship 13-3 or bust season. And fire licht and Bruce. Of course all two face bandwagon fans too. If the goal is not attained.

  34. DoooshLaRue Says:


    That just confirms my belief Jaymiss is a BSh!tter.
    He slipped up.
    That was the true JW sayin’ he was ballin’

  35. Adrnagy Says:

    Steve k, didn’t Brady get suspended too? Didn’t he lie too ?

  36. SteveK Says:

    I will not compare ball psi vs sexually violating a woman.

  37. SteveK Says:

    Would you expect the same from Jameis in year 6?

  38. SteveK Says:

    The nature for which they were suspended was strikingly different.

  39. MadMax Says:

    Thought you were leaving Adrnagy…

  40. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Yup Jay Miss will be at next year’s Super Bowl – either with a free ticket or possibly holding a clipboard. He sure as hell won’t be the starting QB for either of the teams.

  41. SteveK Says:


    How are the fans two-faced? We want a winner and supported Jameis. You’re just upset that Jameis flopped and you are projecting on the team/fans.

    It’s ridiculous to think Jameis is the savior and then when he fails you demand NFC C game or bust.

    Jameis had one season in 5 years where he won 9 games and achieved a winning record.

    Brady was pick 199, James was 1.

    When do you adjust your lens of judgement to be objective?

    Can’t wait!

  42. Hethrew 30 Says:

    Winston: Hit the road, dirtbag. And keep your hands off the ladies on your way out of town. And don’t stop and steal anything. Thanks for nothing!

  43. Robert Says:

    he’ll never work in the nfl, and it’s on him. POS and headcase.

  44. Dave Says:


  45. Jonathan Limpchimpi Says:

    Perhaps winning the National Championship as a freshman gave him too much confidence…if such a thing is possible. Lost in all of this is he isn’t the only one. Mariota benched mid-season; Newton will be traded or cut with one year left on a suddenly reasonable contract. JW is a lightning rod indeed.

  46. Isaac haggins Says:

    Big Mac , that is a great great situation for all and one Winston would consider but Arians and Licht don’t want to handle that even if it would be an awesome situation for the franchise !!!!

  47. Bucfish7 Says:

    Good luck Jameis! I rooted for you as a Buc and as a man. You did your best in both endeavors, and for that, I applaud you. Things didn’t work out in Tampa as I’m sure you hoped, but the sun is just getting started for your career. God bless you and your family!

  48. Jonny Says:

    I have gratitude for him for entertaining me big time as a Bucs fan that lived through the dullest of dull seasons under Schiano and Lovie with the likes of McCown and Glennon as our star QBs. Last season was particularly thrilling. Despite losses I was very much entertained, which is a basic request I have always had for my team.

  49. NOLES Says:

    Love it.. he is still talking trash, he doesn’t know when to stop. Sign of his immaturity.. i mean really at this point your gonna post that you will be with another team & playing in the SB in Tampa…

    Please……. JW that ain’t happening.. SHUT YOUR MOUTH & prove yourself on the field. If you chose to talk trash then so be it that’s your style but at least then you earned the right…

    Please save your 5000 yds & 30 TD’s story bc no teams care, its apparent

  50. Aaron Says:

    Good Luck JW!

    Crossing my fingers that this season doesn’t get cancelled – everyone be well – should be a very fun season.

    Go Bucs!

  51. Hethrew 30 Says:

    The Glazers gave this chump everything, and then some. He took ALL of it, and THREW IT AWAY. The Glazers were fools not believing what so many knew about hiim at FSU: He is a wreckless gunslinger on the field, is selfish, vulgar, disrespects women, and is a liar and BS artist off the field. And they brought him here anyway. And they picked up hus fifth year anyway even after he confirmed who he is with the Uber disgrace and awful 2017/18 seasons. Should have moved on three years ago. The rest of the world is not fooled. And no, the Bucs would not have him back. Dude needst to be gone. Dare I say, we will read about him in the news over the next year…or sooner. And it won’t be a good football story. Reap what you sow.

  52. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Yep, see ya at the Super Bowl Jameis

    You can sit next to my wife and I. The more the merrier.

  53. Jmarkbuc Says:


    BA isn’t any more full of $hit than most coaches….

    How did BA screw JW? Got rid of Fitz to protect JWs ego…didn’t bench him, when other coaches would have…gave him enough rope, and JW hung him self with it.

  54. Hethrew 30 Says:

    Love the pic…that we’ve seen so often..his “Dear God” BS loser sign-me-up-Glazers pick that no one is fooled on. Now it’s his GTFOH pic.

  55. Allbuccedup Says:

    If pick sixes are a requirement Jameis will be there.

  56. ModHairKen Says:

    Publix is hiring, Jameis.

  57. Ndog Says:

    Ah the CLUELESS classless as always.

  58. Hethrew 30 Says:

    If Winston catches on with a team, it will be as a backup. This, after he fires his agent (again) just like he did after the Uber thing. You see, Winston can do no wrong. It is always someone else’s fault. He is not dumb…he knows how he has to be, he knows what to say, but he doesn’t have it in him to be an honest, successful human being on and off the field. The world knows it. His record, is his record. And it’s not good.

    Oh, but hey, he’s QBR says he’s HoF. GTFOH!

  59. Heilan Laddie Says:

    I flew in from Scotland for Jameis first game. So sad to see the unravelling of his potential. I blame Joe for naming him America’s Quarterback. Jamies thought Joe meant Captain America and he could do the impossible. Sometimes he did but equally sometimes he failed miserably to do the possible.

    I remember sitting that day with my A Train shirt on, thinking that was one of the most immature performances imaginable.

    Unfortunately that is still his weakness.

  60. MadMax Says:

    I look at it this way….JW and the whole bad history Including Koetter and Smith) netted us some decent draft positions and we capitalized on them….especially the past 2 years with Big V, Rojo (i still think he’ll beast for us), D. White and some great DB picks in Bunting, Dean and Whitehead…and of course landing Godwin.

    We’ve been hit with a lot of bad luck along the way and some 1sts that just didnt work out….and now a #1 overall, and a 2nd on Spence.

    But Mr. Licht and BA are putting their heads together and finally will bring us some January football. Im going to sit back and enjoy this ride!

  61. Slugglife go straight to moderation Says:

    Time to move on. The endless insults to the guy are unnecessary. He did give his all, but we have a new QB. Best to just leave it at that.

  62. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Best of Luck to you, Jameis.
    I hope you find your best self as an NFL QB and show what you can really do.

  63. Slugglife go straight to moderation Says:

    Hopefully that post makes it out of moderation. It did seem a little risqué.

  64. Rocket blaster Says:

    A lot of angry hating virgins in the comment section

  65. Hethrew 30 Says:

    On a less serious note…I would take this tweet as Winston has gotten confirmation he’s not wanted back here even as a back-up QB. As I’ve said since 2017, he’s done here, and will never be the face of anyone’s franchise. I’m just sorry it took so long to the Bucs to see it through. I’ve also said he was back-up material all along…and this tweet also tells me he’s about to sign somewhere, probably for $4-5M.

    And I can’t believe some dimwits here though it was wise to tag him, or pay him now. GTFOH.

  66. Adrnagy Says:

    Bruce is nothing but an offensive coor. That’s it.

    Bruce = was lucky to be around great QB
    Not other way around.

  67. Adrnagy Says:

    With jameis was playoff or bust. Considering 5 yrs of rebuilding team and head coaches and second year of Bruce offense and him being 26

    With Brady it changes everything. First he’s 43. Exp right? Super Bowls right? Then you add what Bruce said … he makes everyone better etc etc including making Bruce better. !

  68. Pete Says:

    Thank you, Jameis!
    Best wishes!!!

  69. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    I have to admit that it could have been a better “good bye”, especially from someone that has the heart I know he has.

    There were a lot of entities (including many fans) who have shown you love and pulled for you every single week… and worn your jersey. Hope you have not forgotten them. I don’t think you have. GOOD LUCK #3.

  70. Adrnagy Says:

    Steve k
    Two face fan. Yes.
    We haven’t won anything with Brady. Brady hasn’t done nothing for us. He’s a patriot playing in a buc uniform. Brady even said it … he needs to earn the trust by playing. And that’s how he will earn mine. Two face fans jumped right away !

  71. Hodad Says:

    Let him rest in piece. The five year saga ends, stick a fork in him, he’s done. We got Tom friggin Brady for the next two years at a great price. Sit back, and enjoy.

  72. AtlBucs Says:

    Probably going to New England

  73. Darin Says:

    Take care Jameis. I’m sure you will be in town for the SB. Well unless your plane gets intercepted.

  74. MarineBucsFan Says:

    Best of luck to Jameis Winston!! I will absolutely continue to support and root for this guy!!

  75. Ndog Says:

    Final note from me, as many people have pointed out, the Bucs were again classless with their announcement of Brady by trashing Jameis on the way out. What is the point of that? You just signed the great QB in the history of the game and you feel the need to rip your former QB? Really who does that ever, what does it accomplish? This whole thing and the way they have handled themselves has been embarrassing and will more than likely come back to bite is hard. You simply don’t handle yourself in this manner.

  76. MadMax Says:

    I will say this about JW though….i’ll never forget his first nationally televised game in college. I forget who Fl st. was playing but i remember getting excited about him. I watched to whole game and thought dang, if we could draft this kid! I forgot the year but remember the announcers saying it was his first game. He looked promising. Oh well, ish changes.

  77. Proudbucsfan Says:

    People only hear what they want to hear. Most of you should go back and really listen to the statement Jameis made at that press conference, he said if…..
    You take out the interception’s then I’m ballin…. the key word here people is If……… Pay attention to what is said, it’s a very true statement.

  78. MoorishBuc Says:

    man some of you “fans” are classless, you may not have been a fan of the player in general but in the end he was a BUC. He has moved on and so have we. It wasn’t all pretty but these guys put their bodies on the line to “entertain” us. Internet trolls with parting shots smh LOL. Thank you Jameis, hopefully you find success in this league.

  79. ATrain Says:

    How did Jameis get tickets to the SUPERBOWL already????

  80. Jmarkbuc Says:


    Quarantine must be hitting you hard, or you’re hitting something hard.

    Two faced fan? Not me…never cared for the man or his game.

  81. Jmarkbuc Says:


    It was true the many, many times he said it. That’s the problem.

  82. Hethrew 30 Says:

    @Proud…take out the interceptions and he’s ballin. What a dumb thing he said. Yeah, take out the losses, and he’s winning.

    Winston’s INTs were 42% higher than the next guy’s. And don’t forget, he had 21 INTs dropped. Winston should check his sheet!

  83. BAfan Says:

    Jameis needs to fire his Agent who put out big demands for 30 million a year and puffed up Jameis’ ego. He can still find a backup job just like Young did when he left the Bucs, and Young went on to win Super Bowls for the 49ers. Jameis can too. Some QBs will go down this year, and Jameis can get hired somewhere in the NFL. He also needs to know that before he threw the last Pick 6 over half the Buc’s Fans, including myself, were pushing for him to be given another year to try and cut his interceptions in half. He was always a gifted athlete who worked very hard and helped in the community and was usually humble and rarely criticized his fellow players when he had every reason to tear into his OL. He was exciting and had many amazing throws. I wish him the best.

  84. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Ndog, I appreciate your passion and the never wavering belief that you have always expressed. I too am hoping that Jameis finds great success in his next chapter, and rooted like hell for him while he was here.

    I know that you will still be rooting for your BUCS, as always, and I would love to have a beer with ya one day, celebrating a Super Bowl win.

  85. BAfan Says:

    Come on Joe. No more censorship of my posts. I have the right to my opinions like everyone else on this site.

  86. Tony1775 Says:


  87. Richbucsfan Says:

    Sounds to me like he’s going to buy a ticket to The Super Bowl. He sure ain’t going to be the QB of a team playing in it.

  88. Adrnagy Says:

    Not at all. I was in lunch. See you later.

    Stay positive if you are in lockdown …

  89. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Yes, Dave. We are talking about this coming season. It’s called hope and optimism. Try it sometime.

  90. OneBuc55 Says:

    Good luck JW…

    You’re still young, learn from this and get better…

  91. Proudbucsfan Says:

    I was pointing out the reality of the statement he made that so many people Mis interpreted.

  92. SkBucsFan Says:

    Good luck elsewhere JW. Maybe you will get a chance to start one day for another team. It just didn’t work out here. I’m glad the Bucs made the change Time for everyone to move on.

  93. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    I don’t see how people are upset that Winston is gone. Winston led us to nothing. Nothing. That’s what I would expect them to lead us to in year 6. Will Brady be a savior? Who knows but at least the team is not settling for mediocrity like it has for years. This might blow up in our faces but at least they’re trying to change things here instead of going for another eight and eight season.

  94. AlteredEgo Says: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

  95. Mike Johnson Says:

    I get this feeling Jameis will be back in a big way one day somewhere else. And it might be an..In Your face Tampa Bay..kinda like Doug Williams thing. Karma is funny that way. The guy has heart and spirit. He luvs the game and is not a quitter. we have not heard the last of Jameis. Good Luck to him.

  96. Bucsgotachance..todonothing Says:

    You guys cry about Antonio brown neing crazy…Atleast he’s not a qb in the nfl..winston made us look bad far beyond just his feild play.
    He’s a decent football player but last 2 years hes lacked passion and seem like a broken player..any gm that attaches their noat to him netter nring a life preserver.

  97. JimmyJack Says:

    Was a sad five years. Went from head scratching to pulling my dam hair out.

  98. BucsFanSince1976 Says:

    Only Doug Williams was equally as polarizing as JW . For the same reason , both are african american. Simple truth is 30% minimum in general populace are straight up racists , period.
    JW will win a ring just like Williams , Young, and Dilfer did and the Buccos will continue the tradition of not keeping a QB and seeing him win the title elsewhere.

  99. Bucsgotachance..todonothing Says:

    Boat* better*…this phone is inconsistent as Winston

  100. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Jean Lafitte,

    Did you just admit you’re a swinger?
    Ha ha!

  101. Wesley Says:

    Good guy but as a q.b. your number one job is protecting the football and he clearly can’t do that. Good luck to him.

  102. ATrain Says:

    Bucs are classless

    Jameis is the BEST

    BUCS fans are idiots

    NDOG classic lines
    Oh and don’t forget “result to name calling which NDog would never do””

    So I Guess we will not see NDOG anymore NO way he should cheer for a team like this

    NDOG will now write on JAMEIS new team Blog
    You can see him on …. Ummmm What Team is Jameis on???

  103. dalvincookrules Says:

    Well, best of luck to him. If he can get his turnover issues behind him, and I think there is no reason to believe he can’t, and hook up with a good Off Coord, I think he can still have a great career.

  104. Bucamania Says:

    Good luck Jameis. I was a believer at first. Hope you figure it out.

    hope we going to have an alternative place…… even for a hero, JW was NOT, you don’t keep talking… and talking…, even for a superstar, JW was NOT, you at one point get over with, and respect the most of the participants(clicks) that pay your bill…., even for a role model, JW was NOT, you respectfully stop talking for…even for a mistake decision, with JW was NOT, not team wants him, you give up at one point….
    but NOOO this guy is really hurt by this event…. keep talking…. when we have sooo much to discuss for the future of the BUCS….
    ….boy, he is doing what lovers do…..:)

  106. Ian Says:

    Sure he’ll have a great career… as a backup QB

  107. RODNEY ALLEN Says:

    Wouldn’t mind him playing behind Brady. Maybe he could learn to cut down on those ints then we wouldn’t need to draft a rookie qb

  108. lambchop Says:

    I think he means he’ll be in attendance of the SB as a player not playing in the SB. LOL.

    If I didn’t have all those interceptions, I’d be ballin is such a dumb and desperate statement to make.

    It’s like saying, “If I didn’t have gonorrhea, I wouldn’t have infected my partners.”

  110. Jmarkbuc Says:


    Me too.

  111. C2asante Says:

    I’m a Bucs fan first and as such I’m happy with replacing Jamie’s with Brady, but the level of vitriol from some of you people indicate racist undertones. Ofcourse you won’t admit it but your negative rhetoric makes it clear you hate the guy and it’s about more than football.

  112. BoiseBucsFan Says:

    For those of you saying “he worked his butt off for us” please show me the championship you win for “working your butt off” none. Also, I doubt the Home Depot will give him the day off to watch the Super Bowl so he won’t be seeing anybody.

    I respect his hustle but he didn’t WIN. Period.

  113. Bruce Blahak Says:

    Leonard Williams was the pick. Would fit nicely now

  114. Humble Pie Says:

    I double checked my sheet…..and I think I understand

  115. Pick6King Says:

    Thanks for nothing Jamoist. You’re the biggest bust in franchise history.

    Try not to accost any women you come in contact with.

    Hope you enjoy the bench as Tom leads us to glory.

    Bye Felicia!!!!

  116. Oneilbucs Says:

    I told everyone that it’s more hate for Jamies then his play . Every body know that this team has been bad for a long time even with Jamies . But he was the scapegoat and now that Brady is here they are changing everything in the playbook for him . Now we need a offensive line and now we need a running game . But I thought Jamies was the reason why we lost every game ??? But now there are no more excuses . I don’t want to hear about the running game or the defense or the kicking . Championship or bust !!!

  117. mark2001 Says:

    Maybe I’m misreading these comments. If not, what bothers me about Jameis’s comment is that it sounds like he thinks he is ready to be the starting QB against us in the SB. To me that shows he still has a great deal of self-reflection before improving his game to be a Franchise QB. And that we made a smart decision to move on. It may take a year or two at backup for him to admit that he isn’t ready to lead a team to the SB. Arians didn’t think so. I wish him the best, but Jameis… ballin isn’t enough… you have to stop making those head scratching throws every couple games. Then you might lead a team to the Superbowl.

  118. BucEmUp Says:

    New England….get your damn.noses rubbed all in it!!!!

  119. adam from ny Says:

    we ready, we ready, we ready for yaaalll

  120. Oneilbucs Says:

    And now Bruce Arians wants a 3 down back but last year he said he didn’t value runningbacks . Bruce Arians set Jamies up to fail and now I think the real reason why Leftwich didn’t call running plays is because of Bruce Arians . But if I was Jamies I would take a pay cut to go to New England . Because they believe in team . And in the next year are so we will be the next Arizona cardinals . Lol lol

  121. CrackerBall Says:

    Pretty soon, we’ll be saying “Jameis who?”

  122. Mauler Says:

    This dude is truly delusional. Anybody that thinks Buccaneer fans dislike him because of anything other than his play are also delusional.

  123. Rod Munch Says:

    Jameis will make a perfect backup here in Tampa. He knows the system, he can come off the bench and play at an insanely high level, the coach loves him. There is no shame in taking the bench for a year or two because the greatest ever at the position in front of you on the depth chart.

    Also lets say Brady is suddenly washed up – there’s literally no one else better in the NFL that is available to lead the offense.

    This makes too much sense. Eat the humble pie Jameis and take the backup deal, and be ready to take your job back in a year or two. As stated before Dan Fouts did nothing in his career until he was 28 – and he went on to have a HOF career. Again, you can’t get upset if you’re on the bench for the best ever – and if you play for as Brady has played (and with the arm and frame, Winston can play until he’s 40+) then you’re only a quarter of the way through your career.

  124. Bucsfan951 Says:

    I didn’t know the Bucs had some many emotional crybabies as fans. Good lord! Some of you guys need to change your pads and move on already. You’re making yourselves look bad!

  125. Jason Mclaurin Says:

    ✌️✌️✌️✌️✌️✌️ peace out Tampa. I can’t take it anymore just no dedication to winning by ownership. I can’t get excited about a 45 year old football player. I’m thinking like Jameis Redskins or Jaguars

  126. Defense Rules Says:

    Rod … They didn’t bring in Brady to re-train Jameis. He had his chances … a whole 5 years worth … and it didn’t work out. Time to move on. We’ll either draft a young stud this year or next to train behind Brady. My guess is a late Rnd QB this year, just to see if it works out, but more probably a high Rnd pick next year.

  127. Mike Johnson Says:

    Rod Munch, I like your thinking here. But pride might get in Jameis way. Besides, many fans have trashed him. Its probably best for Jameis to move on. But you are right, he would make the perfect backup for us. And would probably come off the bench and win a few. Again, I don’t think he wants to come back now. I do see him being successful in the league. Very much so. To bad we could not have shared in that. I wish the kid the best of luck.

  128. The Ghost of Leeman Bennett Says:

    The fact that sports writers are using words like “project’ and “potential” to describe Winston today, a 5 years starter in the NFL, to me, says it all.

  129. Destinjohnny Says:

    Jameis gave us everything he had man.
    He doesn’t have the chops to be elite we get that.
    I for one have nothing but respect for him.
    Look being originally from Alabama i always pull for bama guys so maybe I’m jaded.

  131. Chris K Says:

    How’s America’s QUARTERBACK unemployed? Didn’t Brady ink his deal already? Pretty sure he did.. On a site note, thank you Jameis and best of luck to you in your pursuit to continue playing.

  132. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Jameis gets the blame for the turnovers. He’s not responsible for the absolute worst defense in the league. He’s not responsible for the pathetic excuse for a ground attack. Special teams have been, and still are, a joke. Coaching for the team has sucked. Nobody can question his dedication or work ethic, playing through injuries. He never blamed anyone but himself for the losses, and fans here convicted him on the basis of accusations when he was never arrested or given a trial. Not to mention, his one issue while a Buc was 4 years ago. He holds all of the team records on offense. He got stuck with the worst franchise in the league and made the best of it. He will lead another team to the playoffs and I wish him well against every team except the Bucs. He will still be playing for some team while Brady is making movies in Hollywood, and the Bucs are searching for a QB.

  133. Chris l Says:

    Wish you the best jameis. I thought it was time to move on but I am sad it did not work out. He was a warrior for us and gave us everything he had and that is ultimate respect.

  134. Tye Says:

    It’s all a harsh part of sports… Some amaze in college and just can’t hack it at the next level..
    Many even win the Heisman just to flame out in the pros (Tim Tebow; Johnny Manzel just to name a few)… You are not the 1st nor will you be the last….
    There is life after football so if the NFL has no place for you, focus on life after football..
    Life did not end for JaMarcus Russell, Ryan Leaf or for your FSU brethren Ponder and Manuel so it won’t end for you…

  135. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    Bless you Jameis! You do have class.

    Thank you for your hard work!

    I hope you can overcome the significant flaw(s[?]) in your game. As a Buc fan I supported you as much as I could.

    You are young and I expect you to weather this storm. Who knows what the future will bring. I am old enough to know that EVERY life has a few unexpected twists and turns.

  136. Nicholas houllis Says:

    Lets face it, we did Winston a little dirty: he hasn’t had more than 18 INTs, Arians comes in and throws the ball 40-50 times a game, then wonder why he had 30 INTs. Plain fact, if Gay makes the FG at end of Giants game, and end of Falcons, the Bucs are 9-7. So yeah, we have a great QB if he hasn’t lost his long ball, but what about the future? 45 years, and not one drafted QB with a second contract. Sad days are ahead, not directly, but in a year or two,

  137. Pete I Says:

    Not sad he and his 111 turnovers are gone but I do wish him well in his future endeavors.

    Sports like life isn’t fair and hard work isn’t always enough.

  138. ATrain Says:

    BY bye

    Does this mean we can finally say goodbye to that hack who doesn’t even have the balls to use his name jameis1of1?

  140. AwShbucs Says:

    Jameis is the next Doug William’s only better. He’ll go on to become SB champion and a HOF QB. He deserved much better than he got from this organization and a certain sect of the fanbase and i wish him the absolute best.

    But Brady gives us the best opportunity to win now, and his presence will help mold our next Franchise QB. I’m kind of hoping its Jordan Love however I’m not convinced we’ll spend a 1st on him or that he’d fall to the 2nd round.

  141. EEK Says:

    But he was ballin’!
    Didn’t every GM check their sheets?

  144. Hethrew 30 Says:

    AwShbucs….why is Winston the next Doug Williams? Williams was a good player at a time the team owner didn’t like African Americans. He performed and got the job done, and was a victim. Winston can’t perform, and is a victim to his own misgivings and arrogant, lying ways. You reap what you sow.

  145. 3rdGenNative Says:

    Been following this site a long time and this is my first post. Winston is Freeman 2.0. He isn’t an NFL-caliber QB, period. I didnt want him drafted, and i called it 2 years ago. Winston will not be in the league in 3 years. Looks like I was wrong…he won’t be in the League next year! For all you Winston fans who think he was something special, you are delusional, and dont know football. The guy only had the yardage and TD stats because his receivers bailed him out so often. People want to blame the O line even though they bought him more time than almost any O-line in the league..and he STILL got happy feet and threw bad passes and missed open receivers, and sacked himself with senseless rollouts into D lineman. Jameis didnt have the most important ingredient to be an NFL QB…the ability to read the field. Arm strength and mobility are useful only to guy’s who cant read the field and need to rely on it because they cant deliver the ball to the open receiver. If Winston’s hot route wasn’t open, it was doom. And we saw it constantly. No PA, no pump fakes, no check-down, just INTs. Where is that clown Ndog? And where are the other clowns that said there was no way Brady was coming here? Just wait and see what we can do with a real QB. Fire them cannons!! Taaaaammmmpa!…..

  146. NOLES Says:

    Well said HETHREW..30… & Bucs fan since 76 hope your wrong about 30% of fans synopsis is misguided by racism. Doug Williams is far better than JW since college only difference is then big schools usually didn’t have drop back QB’s like Williams. They were usually recruited to run the option. Williams threw a beautiful ball and had a crazy arm. Never forget that TD PASS he threw from his butt at the Ol’ Sombrero. Maybe JW gets there but so far their careers look very different. Williams went to playoffs at least 3 yrs w Bucs before he left for more $ in USFL. Can’t blame him. I for one wore his jersey as a kid.

  147. Craig Says:

    There are a lot of things I could say about how Jameis brought this on himself, but I’ll pass. It’s over and I hope he can find somewhere that fits him.

    It doesn’t look good and will look worse because of that tweet. Maybe he will learn and not be a has-been.

  148. Tc Says:

    What 2 qb’s had the same qbr rating last year and threw a pick 6 to end the year?

  149. David Says:

    Watching him at Florida State, I thought he was going to win a Super Bowl within five years. He’s got all the talent in the world, he just needs to take care of the ball a little better. Hell if he throws for 4500 yards and 30 touchdowns 15 interceptions is fine. Maybe this is what was needed for it to really sink in.

    All his teammates seem to love the guy, he was a hard worker, a good leader, and I wish him nothing but the best. I hope to see him succeed somewhere

  150. Tye Says:

    Who is struggling to grasp that 32 NFL teams (experts and the only opinion that actually matters) has spoken..
    the Bucs castaway is still unemployed… Stats doesn’t get him the job.. so your attempt at an argument is rendered moot by the ones who do the hiring!

  151. MadMax Says:

    @BucsFanSince1976, thats so weak….we replaced a black QB with a white one, therefore its racism…jeeze you race card players are really pathetic, theres no help for you as bad as you need it…ALWAYS in your own freakin way trying to manufacture racism where it doesnt exist!!!

    I dont care if he’s a purple martian from planet Saturn, he’s Tom freakin Brady you stupid dimwit!

    Shut up about the virus shutting us down for a year!! America is taking extreme measures to ensure that doesn’t happen. There is no way in hell that this will be an issue in 6 months because the only people dying are very old or have weak immune systems. Panic news! Panic news! Half of the people who died in Washington state were in the SAME nursing home and were infected before we knew what was going on. I’m not saying it’s nothing, but it’s not gonna be a several month deal. Our own national immunologist says that the curve of infection should trend the right way in 8 weeks (7 now since it’s been a week). People aren’t dropping like flies!! Just be smart, wash your hands, and don’t go around those who are vulnerable. Good Lord, toilet paper hoarders!!

  156. Oneilbucs Says:

    Jamies won’t probably want get another shot not that he deserves it but when the national media is bashing him every day . That’s what makes it hard for any body to get sing because it scares the fan base of other teams . Man they didn’t do Blake Bortles like this . I probably spell his name wrong but yall get my point . The last quarterback they did like that was Vance Young . They hated Jamies out the gate just like a lot of yall did . I know his race is playing a part of the hate . But that’s why these black quarterbacks need to learn from Jamies and Vance Young . Do not trust no coach because Young trusted Fisher to much and when he realize that he couldn’t it was to late. And the same for Jamies . B.A. did him the same way . Jamies should have gotten out of Tampa after his second year . He should have demand a running game . But he trusted his coaches to much . This is my advice to all rookie quarterbacks . They need to take more command of their careers . Like the LSU kid after the first year he need to tell the organization what he need to be successful are ask to be traded. Jamies is prime example of going to a organization that never developed a quarterback in their history . Because they will blame you for not doing their job . Like getting players and better coaching around you then you get the blame for not being successful . And yall talking about grooming the next young quarterback lol lol . We haven’t groomed 1 yet so what makes yall think that going to happen ?? Because yall no nothing about football yall think a quarterback supose be a hall of Famer in 3 years . This fanbase and this franchise is a joke lol lol . And now yall happy about a 43 year old quarterback that played bad the last 2 years and he was carried by his runningbacks and defense . He ain’t got nothing to carried him on this team . Lol lol lol …..

  157. Patrickbucs Says:

    Great excuse, JW will win Super Bowls elsewhere. Ok let’s see a freaking team sign him first as a starter..

  158. MadMax Says:

    @Oneil, another playing the race card. And the way you speak in your post, i mean, im not the smartest poster here but jeeze dude, “vance” young? It seems race card playing and low IQ are common denominators here lately.

  159. Wesley Says:

    @oneil – g.m.’s watch game film to make decisions. To blame the media as to why he isn’t a starting q.b. is ridiculous. The excuses for Winston are ludicrous.

  160. Patrickbucs Says:

    O’Neil – JW had the second best running game in the NFL year 2, went 9-7 against a so so schedule. Maholmes had a great running game this year? Kc averages 3 more yards per game and had a worse defensive ranking then the Bucs (finished 15) 6 of the top 10 Defensive ranked teams did not make the playoffs.. please move on or do some real research

  161. Patrickbucs Says:

    Bucs year 1 for JW, sorry

  162. Mike Johnson Says:

    Is not how you start or run the race, its how you finish. I got Jameis finishing as a winner. It takes time for some people. jameis Winston is not finished by a long shot. I hope he lands in Pittsburg behind Big Bend. Good Luck to him.

  163. BucRicer Says:

    JW’s stats are largely inflated by the 2 all pro receivers. Without them, he should be out of the league already, not even qualified for a back up job.

  164. Bucsfan951 Says:

    “ I know his race is playing a part of the hate.”

    Yes, bc the media also hates all other black qbs like mahomes, Wilson, Watson, Jackson, and all of the other black qbs.

    I love when the race card is thrown out there with absolutely no proof.

    No, what doomed Winston was Winston. It’s that simple. Yr 5 and he turns the ball over 35 times. That’s unacceptable in this league. ITS THAT SIMPLE!!!

  165. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Doug Williams sucked. Check out his stats. 38% completions won’t get a player a third string backup job is the league. His career average with the Bucs was less than 50%. Jameis would have beat the Rams where Doug couldn’t put up 10 points. Also,Doug threw the ball out of bounds to stop the clock on 4th down in the last minute of the game. Jameis never did that.

  166. Pick6King Says:

    This just in: Any team that doesn’t sign Jamoist Winston, America’s anal wart, Pro Bowl alternate, Mr Pick 6, to a contract, is absolutely racist.


    Joe is an idiot!!!

  167. Bruce Blahak Says:

    @ 1sparkybuc. I’ll assume you are a youngster. Stats are stupid. I watched Willams games with the Bucs. Life long Buc fan. There is no question, that he is BY FAR, the best QB the Bucs ever had. A true gamer for the ages. They ruined his career.

  168. JAlexMl Says:

    So saddened. We needed him as a backup badly. How else would our defensive backs continue to learn how to intercept quarterbacks. Eating W’s, grabbing girls P’s, stealing crab legs, slinging pick 6’s, and losing a lot of football games. I checked my sheet. It says you are the greatest garbage time quarterback ever. Goodbye Jameis thanks for wasting our pick, time, and money.

  169. Noles Says:

    Hey 1 sparky

    You Suck! Guess who won’t be in ring of honor JW or his clown buddy McCoy! Williams not only was first black QB to start and win the super bowl but he smashed all the previous passing records. The Bucs offense was different w run game as the focus & play action pass. He had Jimmy Giles but WR’S were not great, Kevin House was no Godwin or ME. Did you actually watch the Bucs then or you just Googled this SH#%t…

    He was also HC at Grambling & VP of operations w 2 NFL teams bc he is RESPECTED, SMART & they value his opinion. Same cannot be said for Winston.

    No one will hire JW ever to lead men bc you have to be RESPECTED to lead effectively & No one respects JW, YOU KNOW WHY????

    Because he hasn’t earned it……. Check your stat sheet bc the most important one is W’S CHECK YOUR STAT SHEET

  170. Noles Says:

    Williams also overcame a lot of personal tragedy successfully like the premature death of his wife I believe before she was 30. I cannot imagine what that was like but I can only imagine the amount of personal fortitude than man has to endure that along with the REAL RACISM he dealt w during those times as a black QB…

    DOUG WILLIAMS is a MAN… JW is a guppie at best

  171. Oneilbucs Says:

    Why do yall love to say race card ? I know a lot white people hate the truth . But let’s be clear they don’t treat white quarterbacks like that and yall no it and don’t bring up Johnny Manziel . The national media is hurting Jamies with the way they are talking about him and yall know it . Tom Brady looked like crap the last 2 years and yall happy about that ?? He’s 43 years old the only reason why yall are so happy is because of the pass . Brady ain’t gonna to nothing with this team . Bruce Arians ain’t changing his playbook . Brady is going to get killed behind that offensive line and with no running game good luck with that I hope we win but I just don’t see it and Bruce Arians will leave and we will be like the Arizona Cardinals .

  172. Bucy Says:

    Naa naa naa. Naa naa. Hey Hey Hey. Goodbye *turns up exit music* 🎵

  173. Oneilbucs Says:

    Nole so now black quarterbacks don’t face racism anymore ? You see that’s my hold point with a lot of white people . I live in Houston and it was just last year that a white guy said that black quarterbacks are not smart enough and they are undependable he was talking about Watson . And he said this on the radio . And you know what else he said he aslo said it’s a lot of white fans that feels that way they just don’t tell their true feelings to every body . And that’s ok because racism ain’t never leaving American . Just like I feel like that white cornerbacks should get a chance and at the runningback position . Black quarterbacks still has hard time with fans . That’s why it’s easy for white quarterbacks to stay in the NFL if they want to stay . Matt Schaub just got 2 million dollar deal with the Falcons . What about black coaches that got skip over this year . Like the Chiefs offensive coordinator he calls all the plays for that offense . Jim Caldwell who coach in a superbowl . Wentz ain’t did nothing in the NFL Nick Foles won with the same team he couldn’t win with .

  174. Hethrew 30 Says:

    It’s pretty messed up with a guy like OneilBucs throws down the race card because he thinks repeated off field character issues and on field poor play/decison making are not issue. I guess those things according to OneilBucs are inherent characteristics of any black QB and they are protected characteristics. Were I Dak, Russ, Tyrod, Lamar, Patrick, Deshaun, Teddy, and the like, I’d take offense to OneilBucs’s racist comments.

    Give the black men more credit, dude. Sure there is racsim out there, but there is no evidence in that for Winston. Especialy with his chances. Go watch your Jussie Smolett reruns for perspective.

  175. Hethrew 30 Says:

    Oneilbucs…I’d disagree with any statement that black QBs are smart enough. That is as racist as you claiming white QBs dont get treated the same and you then say Manziel can’t be included (because that doesn’t support your baseless case). Plenty of white dudes that didn’t perform and that got what they deserve…NO JOB…and plenty of white dudes with off field stuff plus bad performance that got justified raps. You just want to pick and choose. To be “fair” the Bucs actually gave Winston more chances than any QB has ever had, regardless of race. Dilfer and Vinny come to mind first. And there are more they sent away too. Stop acting like black dudes that don’t perfrom are victims. Especially Winston. He had a good gig and got lots of chances and blew them all.

  176. Hethrew 30 Says:

    J. OneielBucs Smollett…LOL.

  177. Oneilbucs Says:

    Hethrew I’m not saying that that’s how you feel are even maybe most of yall on this site . But you can’t pretend like it doesn’t happen . And I’m not saying that most of yall that hate Jamies is because of his race now I think it’s a lot of white people in the south that has a problem with his race and they ain’t going to say it publicly and that’s ok as well . I know the word race card is used to ignore the facts with a lot of people . Now as for Jamies people hated that kid from day 1. When I hear the excuses that they give to white quarterbacks you just never hear the same excuses for Black quarterbacks . And that’s Facts …..

  178. Oneilbucs Says:

    I’m from Houston born and raised . I was a die hart Oilers fan . I became a bucs fan when the Oilers left . I liked how the bucs organization gave black coaches a chance . I liked how they are one of the only organization that does that . Now I think Jamies was not coach right he needed a running game and maybe if they would have gave him more of the short passes he would have been ok . Now with the Johnny Manziel thing I said that because that’s one every body run to. Now he had drug problems and drinking problems . And now as Vinny Testaverde he still was able to stay in the NFL just like Dilfer did I just don’t see Jamies getting those same opportunities they got . And for this team we have never developed a quarterback

    @Oneil…im obviously white…part Irish/Scottish/Cherokee Indian…and i grew up poor. Lived in govt apartments with my Grandmother at times, and in the ghetto with my drug addicted mother the other times….in the nastiest of neighborhoods and trailer parks. I was a kid, i had no choice in the situation!

    Just like being born in 1972 and not being able to vote until 1990. I had so many great friends who were black back then and still do now. Im trying to move past race but race card players keep bringing it up….simple as that. Is it that hard for you to understand my frustration and others around my age (48) when we keep seeing this played out? Dont get me wrong, i get you to some point, but I HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT SLAVERY BS, AND NEITHER DID MY PARENTS OR GRANDPARENTS OR MY CHEROKEE GREAT GRANDMOTHERS!

    I wouldve been against it and FOUGHT against it if i was alive and able back then….thats where race card players are missing the mark with people like me. Im tired man, of all of this racist accusation bullshiggidy when i know im not and share the area i live in with many others who are not. Is there something im missing as a 48 yr old white guy?

    Oneil – you chose to live in Texas. lol… you clearly didn’t read my post & what it was in response to.. it was said JW hasn’t succeeded bc of Racism & I CALL COMPLETE BS… on that! He was the #1 overall pick for God’s sake & NO the modern day black QB faces ANYTHING in comparison to guys like Williams, Warren Moon – who had to play in the CFL bc of racism. Can you imagine Warren Moon was a BOSS & should have been drafted as a QB.. THAT IS RACISM!

    Again JW issue is JW he is not being held back by racism in any manner.

    & I am Hispanic BTW, so nice try w the white guy dig…… Sounded kind of racists
