Doug Williams, Trent Dilfer, and Steve Young all have two things in common; they played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and they went on to win Super Bowls with another team. Could that happen with Jameis Winston? Steve Young believes that the Buccaneers would be nuts to find out.
“I think they would be nuts to turn the corner from Jameis. I think Jameis is their future, let’s re-sign him, let’s get him coached up to get rid of all the recklessness, and let’s go all in.”
Those are some big words from a big-time quarterback.
There’s no doubt that Jameis Winston has all the potential in the world to become the quarterback that Bucs fans can appreciate. While many do appreciate him, others believe that there is no way to stop Jameis Winston from playing with what seems at times to be reckless abandonment. But as Steve Young pointed out, his recklessness at times was just downright spectacular.
Many point to Jameis Wintons 30 interceptions as proof that the young man, who is in heading into his 6th season and he is only 26 years of age, cannot be successful in this league, especially for Tampa. Film review by Trevor Sikkema of Pewter Report has clearly shown that a little more than half of the interceptions were, in fact, Jameis Winston’s fault. But that is not enough to steer the minds of fans who are dead set on not giving the young man who came in the league under so much pressure. Let’s not forget how heavy his situation was. Multiple head coaches, ever-changing scheme, with only two constants, before Arians’ arrival, three offensive coaches and backlash from fans over sexual misconduct allegations. It’s a lot for a young man to go through.
As 50/50 as I have been about Jameis this season, keeping Jameis Winston makes more sense rather than drafting a new quarterback and starting over, as it seems to be the theme in Tampa, whether it be coaching or quarterbacks.
