Jameis Winston: I can do everything on the field

Saints quarterback Jameis Winston thinks he’s going to remove any doubts about his status as a franchise quarterback this season.

Winston, who was off to a good start last year before his season was derailed by a torn ACL, talked to the New Orleans media on Monday and said he’s feeling confident.

I can do everything on the field,” Winston said, via NoLa.com. “I can do everything your favorite quarterback can do. Hopefully I’m your favorite quarterback. But I can. Like that’s just what my talent speaks for that.”

Winston says his focus is on rehabbing last year’s injury.

“I’ve been working and my mind has been focused on getting my knee healthy and coming back stronger than I’ve ever been,” Winston said.

The Saints were 5-2 in games Winston started last season, and Winston sounds confident that the Saints are going to be a better team than people think with him at the helm in 2022.

  1. Same stuff from Jameis every….sing….year. In Tampa, five years of this talk. Four years of excuses and then he declared with Arians and Leftwich he was finally going to do it, as he threw record INTs. Then he went to NO and said working under Brees made all the difference. But what Payton did last year before Winton’s injury was throttle him back. He’d still make the bad decisions. Yeah, is this the year? After 6 years of the same stuff? Doubt it. He not a franchise QB. It’s been SIX…YEARS….

  2. I think after a certain point everyone expected him to know things he didn’t know and had never learned. Did his time with Payton and Brees REALLY teach him to learn how to be an NFL QB? Maybe. But can he make it thru tough times without reverting to what he has ALWAYS done? I guess we’ll see.

    “He’d still make bad decisions.” Jameis went 5-3 and tossed 14 TDs vs 3 INTs before getting hurt. This was all after his eye surgery. Yeah, a lot of bad decisions there. Did you watch football last season, or are you still thinking of the Jameis with the Bucs?

  4. Even when he was 5-2 last year his completion rate was 59%, that isn’t going to cut it for a starting QB.

    Thomas might help but he hasn’t played in almost 2 full calendar years and he intentionally screwed the team last year by rehabbing his 2020 injury during the season instead of the 2020 offseason.

  5. the franchise QB is a myth. GM’s chasing that dream have made guys like Winston multi millionaires

  6. Eat them W’s Jameis…. Don’t worry buddy that wasn’t Awkward for everyone there and who watched it!

  7. When Tampa was preparing to draft Jameis, their OC interviewed him. It went as follows:
    OC: “Jameis, is there any throw you’re afraid to make?”
    JW: “No.”
    OC: “There should be.”

    This tells you all you need to know. He hasn’t changed.

  8. Hes not worng… 5k yards in a season, 30+ td passes, and 30 ints in a year… he can do literally everything

  9. His problem might be more related to his eye sight. Color blindness. He throws the ball to the guys with the wrong colored jerseys. Just like in college. He’s never changed. QB’s rarely do.

  10. “My talent speaks for that”. No, your record and stats speak for you not being a franchise qb. And I’m pulling for the guy but so far “it’s a no for me, dog”

  11. It feels like Winston has been in the league for 20 years.
    It doesn’t feel that way with Mariota though…

  12. You have a contract, you’re the starter. Keep on building on what we saw last year. Don’t force the issue in the medias.

  13. Winston brought all the snarky comments here on himself by his previous play and off the field behavior. That said, he progressed a lot under Sean Payton in a relatively short period of time, both on the field and his attitude and behavior off the field. I’m hoping that the continuity of Payton’s coaching staff under Dennis Allen will enable him to continue to progress. If not, it reinforces what a good coach Payton was to get the turnaround he got out of Winston.

  14. As a Bucs fan , it seemed to me that Jameis had turned the corner and been humbled . Clearly he hasn’t been . Somebody needs to tell him to go check his sheet !

  15. Bruce Arians has been fortunate the last two seasons to have a quarterback who didn’t need to be coached. When he had a QB, namely Winston, who needed some coaching we saw the result.

  16. Smart money is on Mariota and the Falcons panning out better that Winston and the Saints..
    Not that they will be great. just Mariota roves to be the better of the 2!

  17. Jamis will surprise quite a lot of haters this coming year. This guy with the right coaching/staff can win you SuperBowls.
