Love him, or hate him, this was beautiful
Maybe never before has a player divided a fanbase the way Jameis Winston has in Tampa. Like, or dislike, love, or hate him, I think all could find common ground in approval for the way he came out and took it straight to the Rams Sunday in Los Angeles. Winston finished with a rating of 131.9, take away the pick-six, and it was a perfect game for him. I don’t know why it is that it seems he must throw an interception in every game, no matter how good he is playing. Not even a pick-six was going to derail this win.
Maybe his best game as a pro
Winston truly played his best game as a pro in my opinion. Truly these are the type performances I was expecting from him in his final, make it, or break it season. If he can keep this up at a respectable level, he’s probably going to be here for a good while longer. He definitely made a huge statement to his doubters, and his backers, he’s not going anywhere folks. This gem he put together with the help of an offensive line that probably played their best game together in the last 3-4 years, truly showed what he can do when given the time, and protection.
Securing his family’s future
He is the player the Bucs thought they were getting when they made him the number one overall selection in the draft, and chances are he’s going to be getting that big payday. One thing fans must understand about Jameis, with all the good he brings, he’s probably always going to be that guy that has a lapse at some point and places it in the chest of a defender at a bad time for the Bucs. Don’t know why that is, but face it, that side of him is as entrenched in his DNA, as all the good things he can do. I believe that most of the time the good is going to overcome THE MISTAKES he will usually commit. He isn’t the first multi-talented, gifted quarterback to have a penchant to throw one or two to the other team fairly often. John Elway, Drew Brees, Warren Moon, Eli Manning, Dan Fouts, Y.A. Tittle, Peyton Manning, Dan Marino, Johnny Unitas, Fran Tarkenton, Vinny Testaverde (lol), George Blanda, and number one, Brett Favre, all in the top 17 in most interceptions thrown in NFL History. This list includes some of the greatest to ever play the game. Winston could do worse than being in these men’s company at career’s end.
A win to remember
So all that jumping around and cheering, chest-pounding, laughing, great feelings we all had Sunday, the pride to stick your chest out knowing the rest of the league and their fans all know, The Buccaneers took it to the Rams today. When the smoke cleared, and that big gal started singing, it was the Bucs on their feet, and the Rams on their backs, bloodied and broken. Wondering how Goff could tie an NFL record for completions, for 517 yards and still lose by a sound 15 points. All this my fellow fans, was brought to you by your starting quarterback, Jameis Winston. We didn’t win in spite of him Sunday, we won quite heavily because of him. Get Ready, there’s more of that to come. Go Bucs!!!
