Thoughts on Jameis Winston
PEWTER PLANK: To take the lead from your question, give us your impressions of Jameis Winston from the outside. What do you think, watching from a distance?
PREDOMINANTLY ORANGE: I haven’t gotten to see a lot of what he has done this season, but from what I have heard, he is doing pretty well. It is amazing that he already has eight passing touchdowns this season in just three games.
The only rough game I heard he had was against Arizona when he threw four interceptions in a blowout. And I was listening to Mike and Mike and they said it was a mistake to not pull him out. I thought it was a good move to keep him in, because you win as a team and lose as a team. Unless he was hurt, I am not a big fan of quarterback’s coming out of the game unless they are hurt for most cases.
But back to Winston, I think he has the ability to be something special in the NFL. His rookie year was a solid one. He has the abilities to get Tampa Bay back into the playoffs. But there is only so much he can do. Hopefully the team around him grows. But by reading numbers, I say he is doing alright. I am actually interested to seeing him for a full 60 minutes this Sunday and pay attention to his game.
