The Rapid Development of Buccaneers’ QB Jameis Winston
This time the Bucs are five-wide, with Winston again in the gun. Mike Evans is lined up in the slot to the left. At the snap he is going to start to the inside and then curl it straight down the field. The defender lined up opposite him is going to stay shallow. Two guys will be on Evans deep.
The Falcons watch tape too and as we all know, they play the Bucs a lot. They are well aware that Winston wants to get it to Evans. Two guys are on him, and they have decent coverage. Let’s look as it unfolds further.
At this point, Winston has released the football.Take a look in the circle, the coverage is there. Two guys are in the vicinity and close. If Jameis doesn’t lay the ball out in front of his favorite target, this will not go well. He must lay it out towards the red mark, where Mike can make a play.
Look at that throw. Winston drops an absolute dime, right into Evans’ hands. The placement and the touch are superb, and the defenders have no chance to make a play on the football. Again, it’s touchdown Bucs!
