    Last year I thought it was a mistake trading for an aging guard, and Mankins proved me right. Little did I know he’d find the fountain of youth this off season, and dedicate himself to being a pro bowler again. It couldn’t have come at a better time then having a high draft choice left tackle. Smith couldn’t learn from a better guard then Mankins, and it sure doesn’t hurt Marpet either. Dare I say this group might shock us this year?

    Ron Jaworski has been an outspoken critic of Jameis Winston. But even he agrees with the strategy the Bucs are taking with his development in camp and the preseason.

    Hall of Fame, Sid Gilman, used to say, “In training camp, test yourself. In preseason, test yourself. See the throws that you can make consistently and those that you can’t make consistently. So when you get to the regular season and you think there is a throw there you can make, and you missed it three times in the preseason, don’t get carried away and think you can stick it in there. Know what you can do.”

    So Jaworski agrees that’s what you can do in training camp. That’s what you can do in the preseason. So he is not that concerned about interceptions in the preseason. He referred to the fact that Aaron Rodgers has five interceptions in training camp. He believes that you have to test your talent so you know what you can do but more importantly, what you can’t do.

    I’ve been an outspoken critic of Jaws, But this seems like good advice to me! Jameis is going to throw INTs and learn from them!
