    Guess fans of the Dougernaut can check that box off the offseason list of things the Bucs need to do. Next on the list, get Mike Smith an impact pass rusher and Jameis another weapon for the passing game like a Right Tackle to groom!

    At this point we don’t know exactly what we have in the tank as to Defense. I’m more incline to support BPA or trade down. After a couple OTA’s we might need 2 DE’s, 2 OL, 1 RB, 2 Safeties, 2 CB’s; that’s worse case. I’m more incline to pick the highest rated ready to start DL or OL at the 9th spot.

    Well after a day of sizzling about Jameis getting screwed, it’s good to know that Dougie wants to come back. I’m not going to lie, watching Cam roll around on the ground like a child made me feel much better. That guy is the most mentally weak QB I’ve ever seen.
    All the physical tools in the world and the mindset of a child, unless he’s winning of course.
    A great statistical breakdown of Jameis’ rookie season on Buccaneers.com and after reading it, I find myself pissed off again. haha
    It’s a long off season fellow Bucs fans, let’s hope we can hit some defensive home runs in this draft. Because last night made it clear, defense still wins championships, always has.

    cgmaster27-I would agree with needing to take some time to “sizzle” about Jameis getting passed over for OROTY. After reading a few articles defending the selection of Gurley over Winston and the obstacles Gurley overcame(bad team/recovery from injury/tough defenses faced/league standings at his position), it made me appreciate his effort. It also made me think of the 180 so many are pulling on Winston, me included. He has handled himself with class in every tough situation he has been asked about(over and over) dating back to pre-draft. He has faced heavy media scrutiny and public opinion. From the serious off field rape allegations that he has staunchly denied to his immaturity issues in college(lunchroom meme and crab leg incident), he has faced all critics and even fought back by countersuing his accuser and CNN for airing the movie which accuses/convicts him without ever getting his side of events. On the field, he has been been able to compartmentalize and remain tremendously focused. Winston has worked hard to prove he is a good person and leader. He has kept his nose clean and been an inspiration to anyone who has met him. It’s been nothing short of amazing if you ask me! The future is bright with Jameis leading the team.

    Many times I have noted that Cam Newton is a front-runner. When things are going well for him and his team his antics border on taunting. But when things get rough for “Supercam” he heads to the bench, puts a towel over his head and pouts. I often say it’s what a person does when the “spit” goes bad that matters most.

    “If you don’t like the dabbing and Supercam gestures, stop me”. The Broncos defense finally shut him up….except for a few boo hoo’s.

    Rolling on the ground, whining on the ground, not going after his own fumble (we didn’t lose the game because of that fumble) and stomping out of his post game news conference in a huff.
    Cam just showed he hasn’t learned a thing since he got in the league when he used to put a towel over his head and sulk like a prima donna when his team was losing.
    Just like and classless clown, he’s a great guy when he is winning but he acts like a classless clown when he loses.
    Leaving his press conference proved he can dish it out, but he can’t take it.

    I, like many of us here had my doubts in the beginning. I’m very happy to say Jameis has put all those doubts to rest. We got us a franchise QB for sure!
