    Amen to that Mark. Seeing things like this is awesome. It’s what you do when no one is looking that speaks to what kind of man you are. And this guy gets it for sure.

    I do believe he is so humble that when it is time to extend his contract he isn’t going to pull a Kirk Cousins and demand that he be the highest paid player in the league even though he will deserve it. If he does that then it will carry over to the rest of the team and we will be looking at dynasty

      Fans of the sport of football should focus on the game, and let the business side take care of business. Jameis will turn over the negotiation of his second contract to his agent. Because the salary cap grows substantially every year and QB contracts tend to be long term (5 years give or take), if a starting QB is halfway decent the next man up is always going to be highedt paid player in the NFL. So don’t knock Cousins for his contract, or knock Jameis for his. It’s business, not personal.

      The one exception is Tom Brady. He is already wealthy without his NFL salary, and he wants two things from football – more rings, and more seasons, so he is willing to play for less than other top QBs. Most guys have neither his wealth, his longevity, or a quality franchise to work for like Brady has.

    Am I the only one that feels that the “for the superbowl” should be the headline and theme for this season? Like tshirts made and everything

    Maybe my friend Pink will start to come around on Jameis this year. See you in a few weeks.

      I thought Pink would note how Marriota was rated a few spots higher then Jameis. He is a Buc’s fan so he will be there.

        Yes, Pink is a very loyal fan and very insightful. Looking forward to observing and commenting with him at Training Camp.

    And to think that half of the Bucs fans didn’t want Winston at the time…

      I can’t speak for all those that preferred Mariota, but for me at least, I didn’t trust that Winston had grown up and matured, that he would do the right things off the field. It had nothing to do with how he’d perform on the field, and in all fairness, the two have similar numbers since coming into the league. But the first thing I said once the pick was made was “I hope to GOD I’m wrong,” and it’d hard to recall something I could be more happy to have been wrong about.

    Love Winstons attitude and ethic so far. I leaned to him over Mariota and backed the administrations feeling he was best for our team. Mariota may be successfull too if he can finish a season. Lol.
    Go Bucs! Is it September yet?
