  1. Anybody can be a leader on a ftball team but I would prefer a more accurate qb with foot speed… Time will tell if Winston can improve enough with all his weapons to surpass M.M. qb rating.

    • And Titan fans would prefer one to stay healthy. But as you said, time will tell.

      • Not only stay healthy which is Paramount, but also throw more than just check downs. I can imagine as time passes and Marriota either slows down or is told not to run so much that his game will become different and not in a good way.

      • Thank you my friend.

        My 50th high school reunion in Steeler Country was a great time. I too look forward to your posts and investigative journalism.

        I usually try to inject a bit of sarcasm and humor while I sip my morning coffee. I guess some folks still, in spite of Jameis being the catalyst to the “culture change” this team needed. Mariota is going to be a great QB too, but he’s not the fire-starter. No Winston isn’t perfect; he’s just perfect for the Bucs.

  3. If Winston was MJ why does he need all these weapons? Winston is not making anyone better like MJ did. Leadership only goes so far if Winston doesn’t start making better decisions and protect the ball better he will be tuned out with his rah rah speeches. As players aren’t gonna follow someone who consistently puts the team in a bad spot
