Joe can just hear the shouts now: “Joe, why are you writing about Jameis? Is he with the slimy saints? ”
Because one of the greatest coaches in NFL history calls Bucs coaches now and in the past a former Bucs No. 1 overall pick now being named the starter for a hated division rival.
For Joe, this is news.
Bill Parcells, without naming names, was pretty clear who he was referring to when asked for a split from the former Bucs quarterback and expected slim Saints starter, Mr. Entertainment, America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston.
In an interview, he fired Armando Salguero outkick, Parcells was asked why he is bullish on Jameis being the starter for his former Cowboys offensive coordinator, Sean Payton.
Packages, blunt as always, hung Bucs coaches out to dry as the culprit for Jameis’ choice, and oh yes, the rotten Bucs defense Jameis had to save all too often.
“Listen to me, it was on coaching,” Parcells says. “If I was his coach when he came to 15 interceptions, he needed to either get his neck cut or I would have cut mine. We’re not reaching 30, believe me.
“So much of it is if you play from behind all the time and you try to catch up on situations that develop situations that are very difficult for some players.”
So who was Jameis’ coach when he threw 30 picks? Well, we all know the same year, Bucs Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians told Jameis to “keep shooting.”
(Yes, Joe knows Parcells did not cut his throat when his favorite quarterback, Phil Simms, threw more picks (22) than touchdowns in the Giants’ 1986 Super Bowl season.)
Joe has said for years that Bucs ‘disgusting defense, especially under Mike Smith, did more harm than Jameis’ choice. The poor guy left the locker room before kickoff knowing that if he did not put up 35 points that afternoon, his team would be screwed together.
No running game + a defense that was only slightly better than 11 lawn chairs = doom for any quarterback.
But still, Jameis put past yards that few quarterbacks have.
So yes, Jameis is gone and the Bucs have a Super Bowl win. Scoreboard: Bucs! It all worked out!
The thing is, it’s possible that the Bucs will have to deal with a previous overall No. 1 election years after Mr. Seven Rings calls it a career.
Joe will still win the Super Bowl victory!
