    It may be a blessing in disguise. Winston may hit the long bombs perfectly without overthrowing his receiver.

      He might have learned something, just take the sack in that situation. It’s not going to help him throw the ball.

        Or throw the ball away…

    Don’t play him for his own good. He needs to give it a couple weeks. Give it time to heal. This season is going nowhere anyway. There is no need to take a chance so early in the season and in his career.

      It’s really not a risk for that. He’s unlikely to injure it further by throwing the ball more. It may or may not impact the recovery time. I’ve had sprains where lightly working on it seemed to speed up the recovery time. Now that wouldn’t be the case with a severe sprain where there is a tear but I will assume with it being a grade 1 there is no tearing.

      The pain is similar to dental pain in that it’s goes from nothing to a sharp pain so it’s not easy to push through vs. something that’s constantly sore. With some motions there may be no pain and with others it’s severe.

      I would rather see Jameis be the back up this week if he is cleared to play. Rushing him back into duty is not a good scenario we still have all the teams in our division to play and need him more then. Also Ryan K did not look bad. The Bills will have to game plan for both QB’S.

        I ment to say Ryan Fitzpatrick my bad.

    Brooks Dunn-Winston

    You all should celebrate!! You might not have to watch JW this week!

    Harry Winston

    You Can’t throw long passes every play with this injury,using the short and medium quick pass game would help Jameis and the offense if the HC would Call it lol I doubt it . defenses have the offense peg by personnel in the game they know when we ‘re running and passing you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure that out.

    Harry Winston

    Also if you notice a lot of young QB’s are running offenses similar to what they ran in college
    think about it. The HC admitted he wanted the 2nd pick in the 2013 draft not the first one when he was OC if that had happen you would be watching Oregon offense on the field

    So he has a spring in his shoulder?

    If any of the Owners are reading these posts, please protect winston and let him heal naturally. This game is not life or death. Intervine and make sure he can throw the way he usually does as he is a decent quarterback who will get smarter with more experience over the next several years. Also, while I’m venting, why is Hargreaves the villian here when it’s Mike Smith who is trying to force something that’s not working.

    1. 7.1


      I have little doubt that his ability to make the throws and not team pressure will determine if he plays or not. If the pain is too much he wont be able to make the throws. Short term it might force him to tighten up that elongated throwing motion that leads to the ball sailing on him so maybe 2goodbucs did have point. When I originally thought about that I was thinking about him simply putting too much into the pass not his poor at times form.

      Both Smith and VH3 are in the dog house IMO. Smith for not making the adjustments and coaching him to play tighter and VH3 for not meeting expectations being 11th overall pick. From a pick stand point he’s pretty much a bust. From a player standpoint he’s mediocre at best.
