For just a moment consider this. Why doesn’t the flaw in his game get attributed to him as easily, and logically as his great strengths as being a part of him, a part of his game? Not a coach of coordinator, or the different systems he has been in since a kid in organized football, high school, college, and a few different Coordinators and coaches since joining the Bucs.
None of those factors made one bit of difference. None of those systems, or the coaches behind them have been able to change the man’s flaw. The quarterback whisperer couldn’t even get through concerning the flaw. Finally not even Winston himself since he was a kid has the ability to change the problem.
There is only one reason, and one reason only that this is so. It’s so obvious, and simplistic. Just like the good stuff is a part of his game, so is the bad. It’s just the way it is. What you see is what you get. It is what it is. It doesn’t need all these excuses to justify it as something he can actually fix.
Build a much more solid O-Line and say Leftwich commits to running more than they have in a while, and it’s clicking? The interception problem is still going to be there. He may can cut down on the total number of 30 next season. He will still be throwing a lot of interceptions, because that is who he is. A certain percentage of his throws are always going to be to the other team.
A second year in Arians’ system isn’t going to magically change who he is. He already has shown he can run the system at a high level of production. He has also shown that the interceptions are still going to be there as well at the highest level.
Is it wrong to hope against all hope that Jameis Winston will somehow get a hold on this problem in 2020? Absolutely not, as long as you know those chances are very slim. The Best this franchise will ever get out of him is a number of picks around16-25 for a season. If that is a number One Buc feels good with, then they will be happy with him as their starter.
