PewterReport.com and Westshore Financial present the Pewter Nation Podcast, a weekly audio hour of news, analysis and inside scoop on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers delivered with a dose of humor and insight from Bucs beat writers Scott Reynolds, Mark Cook, Taylor Jenkins and Matt Matera, who also serves as the show’s producer. Look for the Pewter Nation Podcast each week on PewterReport.com for your listening pleasure during the 2020 season.

It was a busy week in Bucs news and most of it was pertaining to quarterback Jameis Winston. The five-year veteran recently received LASIK eye surgery along with knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus that has a lot of fans discussing it on social media. So we revisit whether it would have been better for Winston to sit out at the end of the year.

This free agency class is one of the more unique ones we’ve had at quarterback in terms of the number of big names that might be available. And that’s what makes the issue more complex, because there’s a domino effect of which quarterback either signs or comes available before the Bucs act on a decision. They also have to be careful not to wait too long.

The other topic that has generated a ton of buzz was the video that the Bucs sent out of teasing new uniforms. It looks like some creamsicle will be added, but will it be the entire uniform? Is the Pewter color gone or are they staying with that and the red that they won a championship with? There’s a lot to address in this latest episode of the Pewter Nation Podcast.

Arians hinted that he wants to build on this defensive core. Not to say the QB decision isn’t important or the Bucs will stop looking for upgrades and depth at RB, WR, OL and TE. But the bottom line is Arians believes you can build something with this defensive nucleus.

Arians has said 1 INT per game is the acceptable standard which 16 INTs in a season.

The assumption is that most QBs that are considered valid starters in this league need to be close to a 2:1 TD/INT ratio which means if you are throwing 16 INTs in season then you need to be throwing 32 INTs in an ideal scenario.

I see them tagging Winston, Trading Howard, and drafting an OL with the first pick, after that who knows?

I don’t know about the rest of y’all, but I am ready for the QB drama to end. Stick with Winston, draft his replacement or sign a veteran. I’m just about done caring.
What I do know is that the Bucs coaching staff and front office have put a lot more thought and research into this than any of us. Well, except for Macabee, God rest his soul. Whatever the Bucs decide will probably be the right thing, but we’ll second guess it for the entire off season.
But, dagnabbit, rip that bandaid off already.

That whole Winston FA tour threat is moot if the Bucs extend the exclusive franchise tag by the deadline March 10th. If he’s tagged, talking with other teams is out. If he doesn’t sign it, the team can still talk with other QB’s while he sits while other QB openings are being filled, and they can rescind it if they find a suitable replacement. If he does sign it, the team still has the right to trade him at that point if they like. Only way the team loses leverage is if they don’t tag him and let him hit… Read more »

The problem is Offering him that Franchise Tag puts the team on the hook for $30 plus mil this season. He’s certainly not worth that….

I personally believe Winston had a contract on the table all the way up until and after the Texans game. Where He started that game with a pick & ended it with a pick. I was officially off the Winston Bandwagon after that game and all he did was solidify it the week during the Falcons Game. I’m Out!!!

I’m out as well, but the LAST thing you want to do is put out a “We desperately need a QB” sign. The point I’m making above is that the tag provides insurance while still leaving you flexibility to find a replacement. Absolute worst case is you have Winston 1 more year at about $27M, best case you find a replacement you’re more comfortable with on a multi-year deal. He can still be traded after he signs it, and it can still be rescinded if he doesn’t. Kind of sucks for the player, but this is a business after all.

I agree But it’s a Double Edged Sword!
What’s Winston’s market value? Is he worth top 5 QB money to the Bucs or any other organization? Because if we franchise him we are on hook for contract and finding a trade partner may be difficult….
Personally I don’t like the Franchise Tag option for Winston because as a franchise your are saying that he is worth the risk.
Transition Tag maybe! But I’m altogether Out on Winston.

Jpp’s 8.5 sacks in little over half season last year played is “average?” I’ll take bunch average joes then. Lol. I’d try to keep him for sure if price is “fair.”

Yeah all JPP has done is produce crazy numbers since coming in Tampa. People are using a lack of pressures but sacks matter more than pressures at the end of the day because that guarantees a lost down for the offense compared to a pressure.

I’ve been reading PR since the late 90s when it was an actual magazine. Huge fan of the podcast and all the guys on it. I do have to take slight issue with something SR said yesterday. He mentioned JW has everything you want as a QB, minus the picks. I have to disagree. Mind you I am a FSU grad and had been a huge Winston supporter. Some areas that are subpar Scott didn’t mention: He has shown poor judgement off and on the field. Running over Quarles to rush onto the field, poking a player in the back… Read more »

I kind of thought there’s probably stories similar to what everyone knows.

Since the uniforms thing was mentioned, I guess I’ll post my annual support for bringing back BuccoBruce . . . to say the least, I think Bucco Bruce can work with the Pewter and Red. Put Bucco Bruce on one side, and the original Pewter and Red flags on the other side.

Should find out something soon. They unveiled the last new logo and helmet on Feb 20th, 2014 and the new uniforms on March 3rd, before the start of free agency on the 11th. Would think a similar time frame makes sense this year as well.
