“King Crab”

2013 was when I first saw Jameis Winston play. It was for the Florida State Seminoles. From that first game, I knew he was special. He would go on to win the Heisman Trophy that season along with leading Florida State to a championship and a perfect record. In the two years he was there, he lost only one game. It’s been a completely different story in the NFL. He was the first overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Last season, he became the first quarterback to throw 30 touchdown passes and 30 interceptions. After parting ways with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the quarterback has signed a deal to be Drew Brees’ backup in New Orleans.

The one thing I’ve always noticed about Jameis is how much fun he has playing the game. He approaches the game with a fearless mentality. It’s also safe to say he plays like a gunslinger which can also get you into trouble. I appreciate that he likes taking a chance though. To be honest, he’s not that bad of a quarterback when his head is in the game. His ball placement is particularly good when he can connect with his receivers. Jameis can place it exactly where his intended guy can get it only. We talk about the Big Ben’s or Russell Wilson’s with how they’re able to extend the play. Jameis has shown some magic here and there to stay on his feet.

I know the numbers weren’t the greatest last year. Nobody wants to throw 30 interceptions. However, he did throw 33 touchdown passes and threw for 5,109 yards passing. I wasn’t really a fan of how the Buccaneers handled his release. I get you signed the greatest to play the position, but I remember reading about possibly signing him so he can learn from Brady. Now, he’ll be sitting behind another all-time great quarterback. Same division, just a different place.
