In an article from JoeBucsFan.com written by a guy named Joe, titled: You Can’t Be Your Main Reason for Losing, he interviews Jameis Winston near the end of the 2018-2019 regular season about one of Winston’s quotes from the 2016 season.
According to the article, in a 2016 press conference, Jameis is quoted as saying,
“I guarantee that some of our coaches want it more than some of our players and that’s the bad part! That’s the bad part. Our coaches want it, I guarantee you.”
According to the article back in 2018, Joe asked Jameis if he thinks that is still true. Winston was quoted as saying,
“No, I think we got good guys in the locker room. We just got to find a way to put things together, man,” Jameis said, “We shot ourselves in the foot too much, the past two years especially. That ended in a losing season. You can’t really be the primary, you can’t be your main reason for losing, as a team. We can’t beat ourselves. If we get beat by another good team, then that’s just football. But, we can’t be the ones that beat ourselves.”
I really hope Jameis takes his own quote to heart and it makes him play better because as Bucs fans, most of us are already aware that Jameis’ struggles with turnovers so far in his time with the Bucs have been a major cause of the Bucs losing several games in the past. I hope he uses the fact that he knows that he can’t be a major reason why the Buccaneers lose as motivation going forward. I hope this makes him better and that it helps to translate into some more wins for our Bucs going forward. Go Bucs!
