Bucs won’t release him. That would basically rebooting the team, and I’m sure Licht, Koetter, and Smith jobs can’t take another 5-11 season. If he plays this season and doesn’t ball out he might be gone though. This draft coming up there isn’t any good QB’s so this is a tricky situation.

Let’s connect the dots…he allegedly grabbed a girls crotch (sexual assault), the Glazers are Trump supporters, and with Trump it’s apparently ok to “grab them by the p******” – so the Glazers will do nothing. Cased closed. To further comment, *IF* he doesn’t appeal the suspension, that tells me he’s guilty. I don’t want to hear “for the betterment of the team to move on and put it behind us..” or “it’s about saving money from suspension based on this years contract vs next”…that’s all crap. If you’re innocent, you appeal. It really is that simple. Or “They are who… Read more »

Really? because appealing worked out so well for Zeke and Tom. Appealing wont change a thing and doesnt mean anything if he doesnt.

The local radio stations and Tampa Bay times are blasting him and even talking get rid of him . I have been hearing several outlets talking very harsh on Jamies Winston.

They aren’t going to do anything this year regardless of how anyone reacts. This news can’t be surprise to anyone in the head office and they still picked up his 5th year option. Which I guess technically they could get out of based off this but he would have to nose dive and completely suck for that to happen.

If we have another bad year, I could see them drafting QB high next year, that will likely be our first clue on they actually feel about him.

Who cares what local media such as Tom Jones thinks? Jones has been saving that article up for four years now. Jameis isnt going anywhere, not this year. If he comes back and balls out and the bucs win some games, this will all be forgotten. Ask the Steelers and big Ben after his SECOND rape accusation. However if he comes back and struggles , after this season ,they may cut ties and you couldnt blame them. Well see.

Maybe he did rape the girl? Yup three Independt investigations were wrong. And he did take the crab legs, its called a hook up. Every nole player got free food from that public, its a known fact. As for this instance, we dont have all the facts to make a decision yet, but you’ve clearly made up your mind as usual. If he did in fact grope her, then he deserves what he gets. But I’m a wait for the facts kind of guy, which you clearly arent.

In a post yesterday, I said that I was a diehard Jameis Winston supporter – had been from the day he was selected as Bucs QB. And I continue to believe in his skills as a QB realizing there was much growth ahead. When I heard the news, I was saddened by it and disappointed that he appeared to have lied to us. But I also said there is much to learn about how this has been handled. I have yet to see a response from the Bucs or a statement from Winston. I will be surprised knowing the Bucs… Read more »

So according to the photo above and the title of the article the owner and GM are listening to the local reaction now? Okay, I’ll finally chime in on this story. DON’T SIGN WINSTON TO A SECOND CONTRACT. Not because of this incident, but because he keeps turning the ball over and is inaccurate in the red zone. The incident I couldn’t care less about. I’m consistent and I took the same stance with A. Talib was here. I didn’t care what he did off the field, he was always a top 5 CB. Winston is not a top 20… Read more »

Winston is clearly a top 20 QB! Our passing offense was #4 last year!! Yes, he has some issues and is turnover prone, but you have to admit he is definitely a top 20 QB. Not top 5, maybe not top 10, but DEFINITELY in the top 20.

How can the Uber driver get any money out of this? Stop making things up. If there were charges filed then maybe. Lawyers can’t come after Glaziers as this didn’t happen at work.

Civil suits can be filed if there were no criminal charges… also even if found “not guilty” of criminal charges. It would be very surprising if a civil suit isn’t filed… even if Uber driver doesn’t want money, she will want a copy of the full NFL investigation to supplement whatever minimal detail is included in the NFL’s letter to Winston and Bucs. All available details will ultimately come out and I hope they aren’t as bad as all the rumors being reported.

He would have to admit he did do what she said and he apologizes to the Tampa Bay Area and most importantly to Kate the Uber Driver. It’s not okay to lie and he had chances to correct what he did. This won’t be the last time it happens; he still runs with the same immature people. It will happen again. I was a loyal fan of Winston and I watched that film over and over where Winston walks into Public’s and to the seafood counter and the guy behind the counter hands him a large bag of crab legs… Read more »

This is such a lame take. So let me get this straight, the fact that Goodell handed out yet another heavy handed suspension on a non-criminal “offense” that as far as anyone can tell no one knows actually happened is the camel that broke your back on Winston. Get a grip man.

Let me guess, you were also the guy that said that the Cowboys should have cut Zeke last year because Goodell gave him 6 for “just being suspicious”. GTFO of here.

Since Bryan Glazer took over Bucs went from Superbowl champs to bottom of division 8 out 9 last seasons
Sit and think about that.
Bryan loves his GM,
GM loves Winston just watch hard knocks “best leader in all of the sports, does that tell anything about GMs judgement
I do not like even saying his name so he GM from now on.

When it comes to this situation what good is there to say, you people act like I am critical of the team that is winning games and in playoffs every year.
Maybe I am the crazy one claiming the team is not looking acting or making moves of winning team.
Winston did not have a 3-10 record last year and he did not have any distractions?

Mike Seven, are you really this dumb? Or is this just an act? Not only was Mariota horrible last year, he might have had the worst season EVER for a starting QB of a playoff team. If not, I’m sure it’s up there. That waste of a draft pick threw more INT’s than TD’s. His QB Rating under 80. But gee, shocking, you surround your QB with a great OLine, great running game, solid defense, and a league average kicker, and wouldn’t you know it, the Titans make the playoffs.

Mariota is not a good QB and he always gets hurt, he is too small. He only made the playoffs from his running game and his good D. Just like how Dilfer won a Superbowl. Everyone has to agree that Dilfer was not a good QB, but he won a superbowl with a fantastic D and good running game. Also, sorry Gator fans, but Tebow is a TERRIBLE NFL QB, but he won a lot of games in Denver with the best D in the league and a solid running game. If Mariota was the Bucs pick, we might, notice… Read more »

I’m with Mike.Seven. I actually feel sorry for the rest of you. What kinds of losers support the players who are losing on their favorite NFL team? How accustomed are the rest of you to losing in your real lives that you feel comfortable defending the actions and players of a team that is above only the Browns in time since we’ve made the playoffs?

I’m pretty sure those same teams are ranked in the top of the NFL in rushing and defense. If you had any football knowledge you would know that. How can a QB make a defense dead last? Jarad Goff was benched the year before, but a new coach came and things change. I feel sorry for you guys that blames one person, but a team sport. Last time I checked Mike Smith coached the NFL worst defense, but let’s blame the QB right.

Thank you Sneedy. Jameis could have thrown 5 int’s Instead of 11 and the Bucs are still a below .500 non playoff team. I don’t care who your QB is. If you rank last in defense, bottom 5 in rushing, have a below average pass protection unit, a horrible kicking game, and bad offensive playcalling, you’re not gonna win many games. That’s not opinion, that’s fact. Just look at Mariota. There’s your shining example of football being a team sport. The guy was borderline laughable last year, and the Titans still made the playoffs because the team around him was… Read more »

I always hear the comparisons of Jameis to Ben Roethlisberger as a player on the field with the pundits. Just out of curiosity; how about the comparisons off the field? Ben has allegedly participated in far worse actions off the field and he is still in the black & gold uniform? Not only that; he will be a first ballot HOF. Now, I don’t know all of the facts of Jameis’ case; but I think that the team should not follow public opinion on this case, but to follow precedent that has been set by other teams over the years… Read more »

Big Ben also inherited a great defense when he started. He wasn’t asked to do much that first Super Bowl season. Only once in the playoffs did they need him to do more than hand off and throw the occasional pass.
