In a first half of football that saw Jameis Winston turn the ball over three times, go down by two touchdowns, then lead his team back only to lose to the Houston Texans, both Twitter and Tampa were abuzz. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a quarterback quite as confounding as the one the Bucs currently have under center. He is an enigma wrapped in a riddle wrapped in far too many turnovers.
While the rest of Tampa Bay awaits whether he’ll be playing here in 2020, one thing is certain. Like him or not, Winston keeps us watching. Cursing… but watching.
Jameis’ play during the very first game of the NFL’s Week 16 meant the world was paying attention to – and Tweeting about – his exploits that were nothing short of a Busch Gardens roller coaster, simultaneously exhilarating and nauseating.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will soon have to decide, if they haven’t already, whether or not to retain the rights to the interception-prone, highly captivating yet highly frustrating Jameis Winston. But before they do that, here are some of the more enjoyable Tweets about a wild Saturday afternoon and the man Buccaneers fans hate to love… and love to hate.
Jameis Winston is the real life version of how I play Madden
Watching Jameis when you don’t give a shit who wins that game is maybe the single most electric experience the NFL has to offer
Jameis Winston is the best worst best worst worst best worst best best worst best.
Giving a gun-slinging quarterback like Jameis Winston an all-in-it-to-win-it coach like Bruce Arians is like giving a drug addict a drug dealer as a sponsor.
You gotta love watching Jameis! The unique ability to keep both teams in every single game. Dude legit does not care….. AT ALL!!
Jameis plays like he‘s been forced to start himself and the opposing defense on his fantasy team
Jameis Winston was so erratic today, Brett Favre is trending on Twitter.
Jameis Winston has thrown 11 passes today. Four have been caught by his teammates, three have been caught by the Texans, and four haven’t been caught at all. The man refuses to play favorites.
This game is so gloriously dumb and beautiful, Jameis’ masterpiece, the culmination of the last 5 years of Bucs football.
There’s no quicker path to a short lifespan than watching Jameis Winston play in your fantasy championship.
If Jameis had to choose his favorite number, I bet he’d pick 6
The only player than can get you in a hole this quick is Jameis. The only player than can get you out of it is Jameis.
Jameis is like watching a basketball player who hoists up 35-footers & makes *just* enough of them to avoid being sat.
Imaging Jameis Winston in other careers. Like, he runs a daycare where you drop your kid off and at the end of the day he’s either dead or fluent in Chinese, no in between, and it’s 50/50
If Jameis was a puppy, he’d piss and shit all over your floor daily but he’d also save your life when you nearly choked to death on a pretzel. #GoBucs
