On Saturday, ESPN’s NFL Insider Jeff Darlington spoke of an update and a look into what the Buccaneers are really thinking during this whole Jameis Winston situation.

Darlington said that the Bucs, especially their owners, the Glazer family, are in a tricky spot for a multitude of reasons. The team is waiting for the NFL to give them the official suspension for Winston before they choose to comment, and are also hoping that when they get that official verdict that more details will come out of exactly what the NFL found in their investigation.

Darlington also notes that from the moment the Bucs drafted Winston, they have been behind him and supported him.

  1. Big Ben still a Steeler?
    Ezekiel Elliot still a Cowboy?
    Joe Mixon still a Bengal?
    Oh, that’s right… The Bucs organization is held to a higher standard.

    • Too bad for us all that the answer to each of your questions isn’t “No.” The NFL would be better for it as an institution. The quality of play would be just fine as next man up would have performed. And the Bucs wouldn’t have to be thinking about a “higher” standard. I’m hoping that most of these rumors and guesses about what the NFL has found are incorrect, but if not… I’ve had enough of the Great Man (or Woman, or Athlete) obsession. No individual man is so great that a pattern of poor personal judgment need be overlooked. You want to live an “ordinary creep” (i.e. nothing demonstrably criminal) life, stay in the shadows outside prominent roles in public life.

    • Well I’d say someone has an unhealthy obsession and bias against a young man who was exonerated in numerous legal proceedings.

      • Mike’s an asshat. He thinks he knows Jameis’s situation better than the people who investigated him prior to the 2015 draft. In fact, Mike seems to think he knows football better than anybody in the Bucs organization. If I was him, I’d submit my resume. I only wish I could see his face as they laugh him out of the building.

    • Way too much time on your hands dude. I have a daughter as well. How many tines growing up did you or myself make a pass on a woman by touching her butt, or giving a playful kiss on the cheek. These things today are considered worthy of jail. It’s just a different world then the one we lived in not only ten years ago. But on a side note, you really need to stop your man crush on Winston. I’m actually starting to think your obsessed with him and vea

  4. He has been an upstanding citizen since joining the Bucs. Cmon Buc Fans. Show some backbone. This is not Jack the Ripper. This is our Franchise Quarterback and so far we know nothing about what actually happened other than the words of two others in the car and one of them is a Convicted Rapist.

    • True enough. We don’t know much for sure yet. We do know Winston issued blanket denials and a statement about a ride with 3 people. We have heard rumors that there was a second ride and that Winston was placed in the car by his fellow passengers from the first ride. Those rumors can be verified by the electronic records the NFL is also rumored to have collected. He’s also rumored to have negotiated a 3 game suspension with a condition that any subsequent similar violation is a 1 year suspension. Franchise QB, lifelong friend or total stranger… IF those rumors prove true he owes everyone an explanation and he should not be viewed as anything but a troubled backup needing to prove himself worthy of our trust… and your defense.

    • Don’t say that to Mike.Seven. He knows more about what Jameis does, did, and hasn’t done yet than God does. In fact, based on his posts alone, I’d say he thinks he knows more about the NFL than anybody who has ever played the sport.

      BTW, I agree with you. This isn’t a game played by choir boys. If Ben Rothlisberger is still playing the game, there is no reason why Jameis shouldn’t be and it would be a huge mistake to let him go. Now, if facts contradicting the information provided so far indicate that criminal charges are being filed against Jamies, and the charges are severe enough with enough damning evidence, then that’s a whole different ball of wax.

  5. How many players did we cut or gave away for bad character who then earned Super Bowl Rings and fame and were managed by other NFL Teams that stopped their bad behavior: hint a DB with the Broncos, and a RB for the Patriots, etc. Even a key player in our winning the Super Bowl was no Angel—Sapp, who had problems in College with narcotics and has been in trouble since retiring, but Dungy didn’t try to dump him, he managed him, and so did Chucky. In fact Chucky has grabbed up our bad boy RB this year and will manage him. Remember Koetter could not manage a bad boy TE of ours, cut him, and another team who could has gotten good play out of him. A lot of you believe if we cut Jameis no one will take him. History says that is baloney. A tough coach who can manage him, like say the Saints Coach, will snap him up and win Super Bowls with him and keep us in the cellar. If the Glazer’s are shrewd, they will keep Jameis and if Koetter can’t keep him managed, the Glazers can find a Head Coach who can and develop him into a Star. They should avoid throwing out Licht after he has just learned how to draft to win.

    • I’ll guarantee Jameis is picked up within a day or two, This young man can throw the damn ball better than anybody else who’s played wearing a Buccaneer uniform. Oh, BTW, for the record, I was hoping we’d draft Marriota back in 2015. Drafting Jameis didn’t bother me in the least, unlike most of the Jameis haters commenting here.

  6. Oh, and remember a bad boy OG who got in a lot of trouble with the Dolphins to the point we wanted nothing to do with him and the Bills took him and managed him and he turned into their best player on their OL. Now I understand how Licht was tricked and Koetter bought that Jameis had turned over a new leaf and trustworthy. Most of our fans thought so too. Well once Koetter reads all the evidence the NFL finally reports to him, Koetter should be given an opportunity to see if Koetter can keep Jameis on the straight and narrow now, especially with Koetter’s neck on the line.

  7. The league has lost so many players to various controversies that they are suspending players for actions that haven’t been proven. They are so afraid of losing anymore income that they would rather railroad an innocent player than show the appearance of not addressing an issue.

    So many questions surrounding this story, or should I say stories as the driver’s story has changed several times. A convicted rapist says it was Jameis, the other 2 passengers say said rapist was in the front seat. Now who would this woman stand to gain the most from in making her accusation? The man serving 15 years for actions comparable to her accusations or a star QB? Also, much like the FSU incident, she waited until Jameis had a big check coming…convenient no?

    But let’s all jump on the witch hunt before we even see any proof right? By the way, the NFL stated he was being suspended for “failure to report” not for groping an uber driver. Further proof that there may be no proof against him. Shall we say innocent until proven guilty or does that not apply to athletes? Appealing would only drag this out longer, as we’ve seen with Brady and Zeke. So I believe Jameis made the right decision to “take his burn” and move on asap.

    • It’s the politicization of the NFL that has hurt this sport, and I put the blame squarely on Commissioner Goodell. This man should have been fired the moment he decided not to fine Kapernick the first time Kap took a knee during the anthem.

  8. Someone once said, “He who is without sin, cast the first stone.” None of us know, and likely will never know, if Jameis, or perhaps fellow Uber rider, Banks (did he do it?), may have inappropriately touched the Uber driver’s cooter, when ordering a Taco, over two years ago. What is troubling, is how anytime something like this occurs, regardless of the facts being known, the self-righteous leap to their cyber pulpit to look down their noses at the accused and and anyone else, who chooses not to jump to their long-desired conclusion. They show glee in uttering the words, “I told you so” because it fulfills their need to, in their mind, lift their heads above the immoral and less intelligent masses, even when their biased guess is not a result anyone would want.

    In this case, in spite of the effect on our supposedly favorite team, there are those who relish the news that Jameis was involved in an incident so they can point out how they never liked him in the first place and how anyone who thought otherwise was naive and perhaps stupid.

    Then, to further serve their purpose, go back in time to list issues that were long ago resolved, regardless of their explanation or proven innocence. We all get to relive the childish acts and unproven accusations.

    Regardless of Jameis’ guilt, innocence or simply failure to report, he is being punished not only financially, but will once again will be wearing the scarlet letter and being discussed on the sports channels, newspapers and of course Pewter report, for all the wrong reasons. Certainly not something for which any of us should be giving on-line high-fives.

    • Hello Scubog- Look, I get it and with some you are correct. However, you are basing your conclusions the same way though. You do not know everyone’s true intentions on why they post what they do. We all do this on some level..we are human..an imperfect being. The Glazers will have to draw their own conclusion and I believe it is safe to say they will not have ALL the facts. Only 2 people know that. The more facts the better of course. Personally, I’m pissed of at Winston. He allowed himself to get into this situation and again; believe numerous people have sat down with him about his past transgressions. Winston should know better. He is a potential franchise QB in the NFL so comparing him to any of us who, by the way, does not even come close to his star power, is not a credible comparison. Being famous and being the average Joe are very different. The only thig I’m comfortable stating is that their is a behavior pattern with similar allegations. That makes me uncomfortable to say the least.

  9. I went to a event yesterday with about 40 people attending, the Winston subject came up and there was not any one I heard that were saying nice things even die hard Winston fans.
    The reason for a high price franchise QB in the first place is to win games and for owners most important is to sell tickets.
    Since coming to Bucs ticket sales have not increased wins have not came and now there is a public relations issue on top of that does anybody know what Glazers are thinking ? Logic says they are concerned .
    It easy for people here to say give him the money keep him, however it is different view when you are the one writing the check.
    Would love be a fly on that wall.

  10. Mike.seven your a retard. Go start a a hate Winston website or blog. Nobody here cares what you think or reads your stupid posts regurgitating all info from years ago like nobody has heard it before. You truly are an asshat. Then since his takes most of your time it seems with whatever little time you have left you can also start an “I think Veta Vea is fat blog and trash him as well before he’s ever played a snap. Do us all a favor and just go away.
