Bruce Arians: Jameis Winston played as well as he’s played all year

The much-maligned Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston still has a strong backer in his head coach.

Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians said after today’s overtime loss to the Seahawks that he was thrilled with the way Winston played today.

“Jameis played as good as he’s played all year,” Arians said.

Winston’s numbers were good: He completed 29 of 44 passes for 335 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He did lose a fumble, but Arians said that Winston showed a good ability to read the Seahawks’ defense.

Unfortunately, the Buccaneers’ defense couldn’t stop Russell Wilson, and a game Tampa Bay had opportunities to win turned into a 40-34 loss. But Arians saw progress from his quarterback, even if he didn’t eat a W.

  1. The Seahawks defense makes nearly every QB look good. They are SO bad, how they ever win a game is a mystery.

  2. If Arians is the coach next year, Winston will be the QB. He’s had one bad game this year that was completely on him despite the media narrative. Their pass defense is terrible and is what they need to fix. They also need to upgrade parts of their offensive line.

  4. What we learned is; JW only plays well on the west coast so leave him out there…
    It is time for Tampa to be lead by a winning QB and stop being just a team that pads other teams win column year after year…
    May 2020 be the year the Bucs find their winning QB!

  5. Great QB’s are hard to find, and Jameis Winston could turn into a great QB. Bruce Arians could be the perfect coach Winston hasn’t had. Give it time. I’m just starting to see Derek Carr start to come around with Gruden’s coaching, and it’s been a year and a half. Arians isn’t responsible for everything that’s gone wrong up until this season. Arians will be the first one to say if he’s giving up hope, and I’m not hearing that. Just give it time.

    Remember last year when the Seahawks unloaded Sherman, Thomas, Chancellor, Avril, Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson and you said they’d be the worst team in the NFL?

    Yeah. They’re 17-8 since then.

    That jamis winston fumble that lead to the game tying field goal
    didn’t help.

    Then blame the OT who got bullrushed to the point of hitting Winston’s arm mid throw then, cause that fumble wasn’t his fault and replay proved it. They lost that game cause of their trash D, not Winston.

  9. I read somewhere that the owner lover Jameis so he aint going anywhere even though he has been so so at best in his career. Love to see him lose

  10. I will give him credit for a pretty good game,except for the play near the end of regulation where the ball just slipped out of his hand. Turnover,and at the worst time. No one touched him or the ball. He always seems to do something like this every game,sometimes more than once.
