Why doesn't Jameis use his legs more?

Postby LavonteDavid54 » Fri Apr 06, 2018 7:04 pm

I really believe he could help himself immensely if he would sometimes take off if it's not there instead of trying to force it. It would extend a handful of drives and cut down on turnovers. He seems to have been a decent athlete so it kills me sometimes when there's a decent gain there and he forces one for an incomplete pass or even an int in some instances. Do you think he's soft? I also think after getting nicked last year he'll be even less prone.I mean I watch other teams do it to us and kill us!! Eli? Carolina relies on it. Even Fitzpatrick extends drives and moves the O with his legs.Also think if Mayfield does good it will be because of his ability to take off. Deshaun Watson is everyone's darling for same reason.In Freeman's big year he did it a lot. If he can't get his deep ball down, I think this element would benefit us greatly.

He uses his legs well to avoid rushers while scanning the field. That's enough.

I wish Dirk would move the pocket more for Jameis.

He is good in moving in the pocket, but there are handful of times that he could just take off slide, or go out of bounds and would help in extending drives.You can't say when guys to it to us it doesn't drive you crazy, especially guys you wouldn't expect. Eli, Matt Ryan's of the world.Idk , there's just small things like him picking up some yards when it's there, quick slants, underneath routes, etc .Just some easy tweaks that would help us a lot.

It's worth noting that he probably spent a good part of the season protecting his shoulder from being hurt worse. Before last year, he ran plenty. I also noticed that he ran less, but I think it was because of his injury.

It was a joke designed to get an mdb like answer. Instead the closet racists jumped on the defensive. Oh well.

Or, perhaps, the one who interprets everything as racism is the closet racist.

And since when did anyone have to elicit a “mdb like answer” from mdb? He does it on his own all day, every day.

Winston doesn't use his legs more because that is not his game, but slowly he has to do so because of the NFL's worst OL.

I love how certain clowns wants a Qb to be Deshaun Watson, but, it is the same characteristics that dropped Watson to the 3rd QB to be picked last year and that will drop Lamar Jackson this year.
Hahahahaha.

Jamie’s has 11 rushing TDs. He uses his legs plenty. Coaches don’t want you running that much as a qb and Jameis uses his legs very well to extend plays and push the ball downfield or to convert long first downs (especially to that big white guy everyone wanted us to cut). This is really a ridiculous criticism. If anything his problem is the opposite; he tries too much to scramble when he should throw it away and live to see another play.

(And he doesn’t have the worst line in the NFL.)

Agreed. I think Winston uses his mobility when he needs to. But he's a classic pocket QB and NFL rules are set to protect/reward that type QB much more than a QB that is always running out of the pocket since then defenders are allowed to not only hit the QB but also get away with grabbing the receivers out in the route.

I want Winston to use his legs to buy a few extra seconds to either throw the ball away OOB or hopefully hit a big play downfield. If he has to run past the LOS I just want enough yards while avoiding contact. Those few extra yards aren't worth potential injury that would ruin whatever season we had going.

Scrambles too much? How is it Fitz had more memorable chunks with his legs that Jameis had in 3 years.Close to goal line inside the 3-5 on a designed sneak? But there's no way he " runs" too much. There's times he's forced out of his comfort zone n is then sliding any and everywhere trying to evade the rush. That's not nearly the same as when there's easy yards there to pick up and refuses , instead toes the line trying to look for something to possibly force. If you watched the Bucs at all, then why is it Drew Brees, Matt Ryan , Eli Manning, etc have no issue running for a first or big gain that kills us cus everyone's covered but the d line is stuck in quicksand and boom there goes a QB breaking our backs with a decent pick up with his legs. N this same board is bitching how we make Tom Brady look like Michael Vick.He just doesn't seem to take off and take easy yards that are there sometimes.
