In 2011, Kellen Winslow expects to double his 2010 numbers

Buccaneers tight end Kellen Winslow has high hopes for the 2011 season. Very high.

“I think we can double our numbers next year just [because] things were not clicking [early in the season],” Winslow said, referring to his receiving statistics, according to PewterReport.com. “I think we can double our numbers next year. I really do.”

It’s nice that Winslow is feeling good, but I’m going to go ahead and say the chances of him doubling his numbers are approximately zero. Doubling his 2010 numbers of 66 catches for 730 yards and five touchdowns would mean 132 catches for 1,460 yards and 10 touchdowns. That would be the best receiving season by a tight end in NFL history, and it would mean topping his career highs by 43 catches, 354 yards and five touchdowns. He’s not doing that.

But Winslow is right to be optimistic. The Bucs are a team with a bright future, a young team that just missed the playoffs in 2010 and have a good chance of getting there in 2011.

“We’re already hungry,” Winslow said. “We feel like we were just reaching our potential. It’s going to be real fun, so I definitely think [the fans] will [embrace the Bucs]. It’s definitely going to be a sight to see.”

Even if we won’t actually see a doubling of the 2010 numbers.

    Tampa’s going to have a sneaky good team next year.

    What 2011 season? Everything I see points to a repeat of the NHL 2004-2005 non season. The owners are going for the kill and the players just don’t realize it yet.

    I thought he retired…..

    Who is the “we” to which Winslow is referring?

  5. toe4 says: Mar 1, 2011 11:15 AM

    You can’t be “sneaky” the year AFTER you win 10 wins.

    Kellen Shockey here is just another big name big talent big mouth average results every single year TE, while guys like Whitten, Gonzalez, and Cooley quietly produce.

    I can’t even believe this guy can get his own story on this site. Terribly overrated. If he didn’t have such a big mouth nobody would even know he played football.

    I guess he will be doubling those numbers in his backyard because the likelihood of an actual Football season this year is dwindling by the second.

    Now is the time when you switch from telling everyone how great you are, to tempering expectations. “We believe we can be great, but we have to realize the ball bounced our way a lot last season. We’ve laid the foundation and now it’s time to perfect the details and make ourselves better. Success tends to make people lazy. It’s going to take hard work and focus to maintain and build on the success we had last year.”

    so he’s predicting 20 wins for TB next year?

  11. tv426 says: Mar 1, 2011 11:34 AM

    The obvious is that TB had a pretty easy schedule, and they didn’t beat hardly anyone (anyone?) with a winning record. Yes, they “beat” the Saints in the last game but the reality was that the Saints pulled their starters by halftime as Atl was beating the crap out of their opponent.

    So while I agree that this team is up and coming, they were hardly a playoff caliber team last season.

    “we can double our numbers”

    we? what does he have a mouse in his pocket……

  13. dbellina says: Mar 1, 2011 11:42 AM

    @toe4
    “You can’t be “sneaky” the year AFTER you win 10 wins.”

    I meant Superbowl sneaky. They have a heck of a team, and Josh Freeman plays as clutch as Big Ben, which is important in the post season.

  14. homelanddefense says: Mar 1, 2011 11:44 AM

    I just hope he has the chance to back up those claims

  15. shaggeez says: Mar 1, 2011 11:47 AM

    maybe he means with an 18 game season?

  16. carlitron25 says: Mar 1, 2011 12:05 PM

    “I think we can double our numbers next year. I really do.”

    Maybe, and just maybe, he was talking about the numbers of the offense….unless he refers to himself in plural.

  17. dexterismyhero says: Mar 1, 2011 12:27 PM

    who is going to double his pay?

  18. stillworker says: Mar 1, 2011 12:32 PM

    IMO…………the only thing he’s capable of doubling is his asshattery!

  19. cityofchampyinz says: Mar 1, 2011 12:37 PM

    I’ m a Soldier!

  20. thetooloftools says: Mar 1, 2011 12:39 PM

    He Kellen, remember when your team mate Braylon Edwards ran his mouth about “what he was GOING to do”?
    Obviously not.

    —-

    you have no idea what you’re talking about.

    In the last two years (coincidently Winslow’s first two with Bucs and Gonzalez first two with Falcons):

    Winslow: 143 Rec / 1,614 yards / 10 TDs
    Gonzalez: 153 Rec / 1, 523 yards / 12 TDs
    (Witten = 11 TDs in that time, Cooley 5 in 23 games)

    Witten, Gonzalez & Cooley “quietly produce?” please… you only know what the SportsCenter hype machine beats into your head.

    Winslow arguably should have been in the Pro Bowl over Gonzalez.

    does that mean double the knee surgeries too?

  23. phinfan says: Mar 1, 2011 1:29 PM

    FREEMAN WILL BE ON MY FANTASY TEAM NEXT YEAR FOR SURE.

  24. memphisyinzer says: Mar 1, 2011 2:22 PM

    Admittedly, not a big Winslow fan. He’s got a BIG mouth and nothing to back it up. He might have some admirable stats, on occasion, but he’s not consistent and his stats aren’t amazing.

    He should take a few lessons from his dad and produce, but keep his mouth shut. His dad was great. Junior is a wuss.

  25. kpow55 says: Mar 1, 2011 2:25 PM

    He had his one good year and now he will revert back to being injured and done for the year by week 4….. he may be a “soldier” but he’s gonna be a sidelined soldier

  26. kpow55 says: Mar 1, 2011 2:33 PM

    but i guess if you don’t feel confident in your team and own ability, why play?

    Only if he’s back in the parking lots. :)
