Being a fan of an NFL team that sucks year in and year out; without hope for a chance at even say, a Wild Card spot, has to be excruciatingly painful. I wouldn’t wish being a Bengals fan on my worst enemy (either Tyreek Hill or Terrell Suggs) but as I reflect on the week 17 matchups I can bear to think about, no one should be having more fun right now than Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans.
There is no player that falls under “must watch” category this year more than Jameis Winston. Every single time the ball snaps from the center it’s an adventure. America can’t help but be glued to the TV. The Bucs aren’t playing sloppy 6-3 final box score games. Whenever Jameis has the ball, we’re either getting a 60 yard bomb or a pick six. There’s no in between and both are equally beautiful. We all need someone like Jameis Winston in our lives.
We’ve been on 30/30 watch for a few weeks now and heading into OT against the Falcons in a completely meaningless week 17 game, Jameis took the field with over 5,000 yards, 30 TDs and a mere 29 interceptions. Our first 30 for 30 season looked almost out of reach. But you know what they say, it’s not over until the clock hits 0:00, or in this case, until both teams got a chance in overtime.

On his very last play of 2019, Jameis came through in the clutch like no one else quite can. Just a magical and mesmerizing play from start to finish. I would have been heartbroken if the Falcons didn’t return it for a TD honestly, even though it gave us the 30/30 record. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the greatest reality show on TV right now and Jameis is our new Snooki. Our lovable and hilariously messy superstar. Can’t wait for 2020.

I want Jameis Winston to open a restaurant where you either get the best meal you've ever had, or you get Play-Doh spaghetti.

#GoBucs coach Bruce Arians on Jameis Winston throwing a pick six to end the game and the season with a loss in OT. “It smells as bad as it could possible smell and it’ll smell that way for a long time.''
