Jameis Winston could be out for Week 1 versus Saints

20 posts in this topic

He's actually  very talented but you just don't where his head is from one minute to the next. It's not like this happened over night he's been like this in college. It seems like he's trying to hard to impress the people around him instead of being himself.

Definitely not a Newton fan here but I think it is a little unfair to compare the 2, to my knowledge (and to his credit) I've never heard of Newton getting into trouble off the field. Winston has been involved in multiple incidents going back to his time at FSU....totally different guys IMO

While initially at Florida, Newton was arrested for stealing another student's laptop.  When the cops tracked it down, he tried to throw it out of his apartment window to try and hide it from the cops.  The charges were dropped after he completed a diversion program.

After transferring out of Florida to play JUCO ball, his dad and an agent were trying to get money out of schools in order for him to sign with said school.  Supposedly Cam himself knew nothing of the scheme.  The school most noted is Mississippi State, but who knows if there were others.  Newton was declared ineligible, but later the NCAA reinstated him, so believe what you want on that one.

Newton made a fairly sexist comment to a woman sports reporter during a live press conference saying that he thought it was, "funny to hear a female ask about running routes", or something to that effect.

They've both made some dumb decisions.  Both have made some sexist comments.  Make of it whatever you will.

Oh I know he did some stuff in college but my point was he hasn't gotten arrested or done anything majorly bad since becoming a pro...just sayin.....

As a FSU fan I always hoped he would turn his stuff around, but I'm not sure he will. At the same token I am gald he hasn't as he is hindering the Yucs. I wonder if they sign him llng term now? That is somethignn they have to think about greatly very soon. Do they continue to build an offense aroun him, or do they try to find another QB. I think he is a great motivator when not eating his fingers, and he actually can read a defense and take a hit. But off the field should be a huge concern for any team.

Soundss like they are keeping the door open that they will have to move on to a new franchise QB.

Come to think of it, maybe the Bucs should have given up a 3rd round pick for Teddy Bridgewater.

Wanted to see the team pound him into obliviaan for his shenanigans last go 'round.

If this keeps up we won't get a second chance at him later in the season either.
