Since the day he first got in front of a camera, Warren Sapp has never been shy about how he really feels. He was never afraid to speak his mind to his opponents, to his friends, to the media, and that hasn’t changed since he retired.

In a video taken by Kevin O’Donnell of Fox13 this week, Sapp opened up about what he really thinks of Buccaneers’ quarterback, Jameis Winston, and the style of player and leader he is – the good, the bad and the future.

Sapp is who he is. He has always been capable of being one of the most charming, engaging individuals in football… when he felt like it. I loved watching him play, I enjoy listening to him talk, and I respect his opinions about football; still not a guy I would want to hang around too much though. His dark side always comes out sooner or later. I don’t think he is a bad person deep down, but he has a lot of demons. I’ll take the bad with the good though. Still my favorite player.

Keep in mind, as a young kid being labeled a drug addict, you become an elite DT, you have every Tom, Dick, and Harry poking you, lying to you, twisting your comments. I’d be pissed off to everyone in media too. Sapp is no saint but neither am I. I’d love to hang out with Sapp. I’d be surprised if I didn’t have some good belly laughs with him. One thing I learned getting older….wisdom.

I dont think Sapp was ever labeled a drug addict but if u want to hang out with him you better like the green.
Having to file bankruptcy and losing your highly paid broadcast job can certainly. be a humbling experience for anyone.
Besides, Sapp never met a TV camera he didnt like.
But all things considered, I wish Sapp no ill fortunes. He played with a ferocity that another current Bucs DT could use a little bit more of.

He was labeled a Pot and Coke user the night before the draft. That stuck with him for at least a few years until he never had an issue with drugs again.

Id say thats labeled a Drug Addict. Cost him a LOT of money falling from top 1-3 spot down to 17 and going to the Bucs, a franchise with a history of being cheap at that time (1995)

A Stat that goes against the Narrative that Winston has thrown too many INT in his first 2 years.

Peyton Manning 43 INTs in first 32 Games
Drew Brees 33 INTs in first 32 Games
Jameis Winston 33 INTs in first 32 Games
Tom Brady 30 INTs in first 32 Games

Add in the fact that Brees and Brady played in Highly Conservative Offenses their first 32 games and in a time the ball was Thrown less. I would say Winston has thrown Fewer INTs than he should have, especially considering the Offense and Style of Play he brings.

I like the way he refers to the Bucs as “we”. Always a Buc!

I agree but I still watched the interview until the end. I hope he’s right about Winston.

So Trevor Sikkema, welcome to the world of professional trolling.

“Warren Sapp is ALL IN on Jameis Winston” doesnt get as many clicks as “Sapp Tells the Truth about Jameis..” and going on about what a “tell it like it is guy” Sapp is.

Don’t get upset when your people come calling in the comments and troll you! Birds of a feather…..
