    His I need to make something happen attitude is going to hamper his practices some in my opinion. But its also that burning desire that is going to help him going forward.

    I’m not comfortable with all this focusing on Winston and then evaluating it this way by rating it on throws, completions, interceptions. Just my opinion. Right now I would be focusing on the OL and DL and determining are we really better and why we are or not. The real need has been a pass rush and an OL that can provide openings for the RB’s and time for the QB to throw the ball.

    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!

      Great as always Mac, I don’t know why the interceptions are such a big deal. Hell Andrew Luck threw three yesterday in practice. Where is the sports center special on that?

    i understand that winston is the most important draft pick in our teams history to date, but hes gonna have some struggles. hes 21 yrs old. everyone seems to forget that andrew luck played 4 yrs at stanford. also luck wasnt playing baseball like winston was. it will come with winston. hes got so much football ahead of him. hes extremely intelligent. please can we chill out. letting him deveolpe CORRECTLY and learning from his mistakes is key to him becoming the long term answer. i love what hes doing, i love his fearlessness and confidence. he will be a star and will finally silence cam newton, matt ryan, and drew breese.
