    Saints game today

    This is the part where the Bucs win a couple they shouldn't and we think that maybe they're turning the corner and will finish the season strong, hell they're not even mathematically eliminated from the playoffs yet - right before dropping 4 of their last 5 to finish the season with a draft position that has them just barely missing out on a super star. So, Bucs 27, Saints 24.

    It was a 2-7 team that hadn’t played in Tampa for 7 weeks. Why would anyone bother.

    Hargreaves is "Harnomore" with Bucs

    Oh well, I went to UF, so I'm disappointed he didn't work out, but he was due $9m or $10m next year and was never going to see that, cutting him now at least sends a message to everyone else...

    Honestly, $25m per year for an NFL starting QB these days is not all that bad. Here's the list of QB's and their Average Annual Salary for their current contracts: https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/rankings/average/quarterback/ 1. Russell Wilson: $35m 2. Ben Roethlisberger: $34m 3. Jared Goff: $33.5m 4. Aaron Rogers: $33.5m 5. Carson Wentz: $32m 6. Matt Ryan: $30m 7. Kirk Cousins: $28m 8 Jimmy Garoppolo: $27.5m 9. Matthew Stafford: $27m 10. Drew Brees: $25m 11. Derek Carr: $25m <-------At $25m Jameis would be here but would be leapfrogged by Mahomes and maybe a few others when they get new deals: 12. Alex Smith: $23.5 13. Tom Brady: $23m 14. Joe Flacco: $22.1m 15. Nick Foles: $22m 16. Eli Manning: $21m 17. Philip Rivers: $20.8m 18. Cam Newton: $20.7m 19. Andy Dalton: $16m 20. Jacoby Brissett: $15m 21. Kyler Murray: $8.8m 22. Baker Mayfield: $8.1m 23. Sam Darnold: $7.5m 24. Mitchell Trubisky: $7.3m 25. Teddy Bridgewater: $7.2m 26. Daniel Jones: $6.4m 27. Jameis Winston: $6.3m 28. Marcus Mariota: $6.1m 29. Tyrod Taylor: $5.5m 30. Ryan Fitzpatrick: $5.5m 31. Josh Allen: $5.3m 32. Chase Daniel: $5.0m 33. Patrick Mahomes: $4.1m And so on... So a few things to keep in mind: - Contracts get bigger every year, so guys who signed 3 or 4 years ago may be making less than guys who signed last year even though they're better. - Tom Brady doesn't care about money, he makes a gazillion dollars from Under Armour, and Gisselle is richer than he is, so him playing for $23m instead of $30m is nothing to him. - A lot of the guy on the lower end of this list are going to move right to the top of it when they get new deals - Patrick Mahomes is going to be making closer to $40m average next year. I look at all that, and I don't think $25m for Jameis is crazy at all. I'm not 100% convinced I'd give it to him, but if he could be talked into a 3 year deal with incentives and options after that, I think it would be smart to re-sign him and see what happens. He makes $21m this year, so $25m isn't going to obliterate our salary cap compared to where it is right now.

    I mean, I know no one here wants to hear this, but Godwin flat out fell down on that second INT, so yeah, it legitimately wasn’t Jameis’ fault.

    I mean Kyle Murray literally threw one in this game, but it’s true that he’s been pretty careful with the football.

    Jameis threw for 358 yards and led a game winning TD drive with less than 2 minutes left in the game. And all anyone wants to do is talk about the INT...

    You must be new to this forum and Bucs fandom in general.

    I see you’ve declined to answer the question. I guess your initial point really was nonsense.

    Which teams have great QB's, shit defenses, shit offensive lines, shit running games, and still win regularly? Name one.

    Rook is talking about 2017, not 2016, and the Jameis-led Bucs did win all four of those games.

    Ah okay, so it's Jameis' fault that guys like Scottie Miller can't get it done, OJ Howard is under-performing, and there are a few weak links on the O-line because he's not elevating their play - but it's probably got nothing to do with him that Godwin and Evans are the best WR duo in the league, and that Ronald Jones is really coming on, or that Marpet and Jensen are pretty solid. Or that Humphries was amazing in Tampa and shit in Tennessee... I'll be the first to admit that Jameis isn't a top ten QB without major problems in his game, but blaming him for all of this shit is petty and simple. The players around him are often undisciplined and for every drive that he ends with a turnover, three end from dumb holding calls. The Bucs have had more than their fair share of bullshit reasons that things don't go well or that they frequently lose close games from inept kicking, to MRSA, to this brutal schedule, to playing in a division with Cam Netwon, Drew Brees, and Matt Ryan instead of one with the Jets, Dolphins, and Bills. There's Jameis, but games are won and lost with QB play, as well as the play of everyone else on the team, plus coaching, scheme, game plans, match ups, conditioning, injuries, discipline, penalties, bad calls, strength of schedule, crowd noise, play calling, weather... Football is a game with a thousand variables that add up to failure or success, and you're trying to boil it down to one guy with abstract arguments like "he's the general on the field" - it's dumb.

    Exactly, and adding to the pile of things that aren't Jameis' fault but suck for the team overall... the schedule that has that fucked up road trip that we're in the middle of is also the toughest strength-of-schedule in the NFL through 9 weeks:
  14. The Rich McKay Conspiracy

    Sundays Game

    That's not an argument, but I suppose it's simpler to just blame Jameis for everything whether it's something he controls or not...

    Laugh all you want but yeah, if this team wasn't perpetually needing a 30 point lead to eek out a 3 point win, I think he'd make far fewer mistakes. All those years with shit secondary play, here's how many games the Bucs lost by 1 score or less in each of them (again) going back to our 10 win season: 2019 - 4 (through half a season) 2018 - 7 2017 - 7 2016 - 4 2015 - 4 2014 - 9 2013 - 4 2012 - 7 2011 - 3 That's 49 losses since 2011 by 8 points or less, and without having written it all down, I bet in a fucking ton of those the Bucs gave up 30+ points.
