I think this is a wake up call for Winston. Instead of “check your sheet” I think it’s now “I can’t turn the ball over”. What a valuable lesson to be learned. Winston is a young and talented QB and his sole focus going forward should be playing smart mistake free football like Brady. What a huge difference it makes!
I know you’re joking, but yes, the pieces were in place jameis, but there was a failure to deliver a complete game.
In the mean time, it’s best to keep a good attitude and once it is demonstrated that the turnovers are a thing of the past, and after the Brady era, there may be room for a QB that’s ready for the big time.
Reading defenses and going through progressions (the mental part of the game), needs to be developed to the point that the physical skills mean something and are useful.
My father can still play school yard ball. He may not be able to chuck it as far, but could probably get close to 5000 yds.
OK, maybe not me or my father, but my son could. :-)
Yes it turned out to be Tom Brady and very thankful it was. But just more evidence that the Bucs were only a competent QB away from seriously contending for a championship. Everything else was in place.
Please don’t sell last season’s team short, it got Brady here.
Agree with the following notations:
“All 4 Touchdowns were by players who came here in the offseason (another testament to Brady.) Wirfs and Winfield are incredible and White is (very close to being) a complete player.
We are better more for the leader and talent magnet Brady is than his play on the field (false, so false. Really?). Winston has major issues but let’s not pretend like comparing him to the GOAT is as simple as a “QB upgrade””(who’s comparing him to the GAOT? LOL,double REALLY?)
Brady came in and taught these guys how to win. The Bucs had talent but a lot of teams do. The truly great ones accept nothing less than perfection.
Case in point Deshaun Watson. He is an incredible athlete and passer but he was unable to lead his team to even 5 wins. He is probably equal to Brady on the field when you combine his running/throwing.
But it is what Brady provides in leadership that truly sets him apart. Jameis and every other QB in the league is an amateur in comparison. Its not fair to Winston (as bad as his picks were) to compare him to possibly the greatest winner in sports history.
Don’t know why this board can’t just let it go. We won a super bowl yesterday and people want to pile on our old QB. Its a little weird.
Winston has had a whole year in the Saints system. Ian Rappaport: “My understanding is Jameis Winston is in the driver’s seat to be the starting quarterback for the Saints next season. He is the potential heir to everything Drew Brees had.”
He will get his chance to prove the doubters wrong this year, although with what kind of team we don’t know. The Saints are in cap hell, and we’ll see how they look once that shakes out.
As for the salary, he’ll be earning less than $10 mil per year. Look at the Fitzpatrick, Taylor, Foles. Those guys earned about $8 mil. Those are transitional QBs. You can always hope against hope that Winston suddenly converts himself into a first pick of the draft QB, but you don’t bet your team’s future that.
