Buccaneers trying to put max pressure on Jameis Winston
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers know that they need a better year out of Jameis Winston and are trying to put as much pressure as they can during training camp on the former first-round pick. Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich said that he is doing everything in his power to make him work.
“Every play I’m trying to make it as hard for him as possible,” offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich said Tuesday, via JoeBucsFan.com.
Leftwich said he talks to defensive coordinator Todd Bowles every day to try and scheme plays against Winston and the rest of the offense that is difficult to go against.
“Hey, what you got in today? See if you can do this,” Leftwich said is an example of how he works hand in hand with Bowles on practice planning. “They disguise well. We probably won’t see a team that disguises as well as [Todd’s defense] does all year.”
It’s good to hear that they are making life tough on Winston because if he can figure out how to go against Bowles defense and it is really that tough, that should make it easier when he is studying film of opposing teams and figuring out how to go against teams in the regular season.
Last season Winston threw for 2,992 yards, 19 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions. If he can stop throwing the ball to the other team, that is going to be the big key in Winston being a solid quarterback and helping lead the offense to success. If he throws a bunch of interceptions, it’s going to be another long season for Tampa Bay.
