Jameis Winston Talks Leading Bucs to Wins, Facing 49ers

QB Jameis Winston spoke to the media on Wednesday during Week 12.

(On what led him to believe that he would get another opportunity to play)

“I think just always being ready. I wasn’t going to take a day off. I wasn’t going to mope around. I was going to be myself and be prepared.”

(On what Coach Koetter’s message was when he told him he was going to start)

“That we wanted to win and that’s the bottom line because that’s what it’s all about.”

(On why he thinks the offense is so successful)

“I think when we are clicking, we execute very well. As coaches, they game plan very well. As players, I believe our talent level and our effort is probably better than a lot of teams in this league. That’s the only reason I can – shoot, I’m a good quarterback. I have great targets. That’s a magic build up for a great offense.”

(On the best part of Thanksgiving)

“I think the best part about the holiday is to get around and be with your family. My family is coming in town. Share memories from the year and eat really good food, but more importantly it’s called Thanksgiving for a reason. I’m definitely going to find a way to have an open discussion with my family to see why we are so thankful. I know I’m thankful for the blessing that I have to be the quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.”
