    Way to go Jameis. I am so excited for next yr

    Well done Jameis! Is this THE Rookie of the Year award or a separate fans choice award? To me it’s a no brainer anyway. Clearly Jameis winston was the Rookie of the Year IMO.

      The Pepsi OROY is the fan voted award. The AP OROY is a media voted award that will be broadcast tonight on the NFL Honors Show. It will be shown on CBS at 9:00pm tonight.
      And you’re right, Winston should be the clear winner tonight, but if the interweb chatter is correct, they are predicting RB Todd Gurley as the media favorite.

        He’s being punished by the PC media crowd for being accused (not convicted) of being a kid. OMG those morons make me sick.



          So agree. Bad timing FSU settled, but they did do a horrible job; part of it was because they had no case. Shame on Tampa Bay Times putting that news on the front page. The accusation is so miss leading and I hope Winston doesn’t settle even though it’s cheaper to just settle versus spending all his future money to attorney’s on both sides. She knew exactly what she was doing when she took the taxie with him back to his dorm and had sex with him. Then she remembered she had a boy friend and a family and went another way.

    40 years to wait for a franchise QB to finally knock on the Buc’s door; Way to go Jameis! Ten years from now, Bucs fans (and I’m assuming there will be a lot more) will look back on this year as the one that started it all.

      Started it all again.

    Dungy started it. Congratulations coach!

    My wife thinks Favre looks older than me and I’m 68:)

    I’m sorry but Gurley winning over Jamais last night is a fucking joke. This reeks of A. the media doesn’t like jameis, why not they’ve been trying to put him in a cage for years now, and B. this reeks of “hey we are about to move a team to LA, we need something to put people in seats. Here the NF;l rookie of the year Gurley.
    Absolutely pathetic. I’ve seen many bucs get ripped off over the years for awards, Dougie comes to mind, as well as Mike Williams rookie seasons, but strangely they were always beet out by a qb until this year. Joke Joke Joke.

      1. 6.1.1


        Agreed. These writers are afraid to do the right thing. These awards, and all award shows, are political. Such a shame.

    1. 6.2


      Yessir… J.O.K.E. Let’s hope that it’s fuel for the fire; as if Jameis needs it!
