Nothing is wrong with his work ethic. Drew had a unique grind that most people cannot match. It's Winston's decision-making that's his biggest weakness. Also, I just hope he's spending as much time dissecting film as he does with physical workouts.
Well, I'd temper expectations because Brees wasn't a 2 minute Assassin in the NFL till 2009. Winston still got to figure that out and it's probably not gonna be there this year.This is good to see. I have no doubt Payton will help him be better.
I'll be curious to see what our 2 minute offense will look like or if we're down how will he command the offense. Brees was cool and calm when we were down and was a surgeon in the 2 minute drill. The unknown. For the past 15 years we've only seen a guy know how to line guys up, knows what the defense is showing.."kill kill".
There's a lot to learn for Winston and see.
Yea for the first few years, we complained because Brees couldn't win any games in the 4th quarter. Then he became the best. It takes time to learn.Well, I'd temper expectations because Brees wasn't a 2 minute Assassin in the NFL till 2009. Winston still got to figure that out and it's probably not gonna be there this year.
From my perspective, it seems that far too much is made of the fact that Tampa won the superbowl after replacing Winston at QB. That fact is true but it is not the only thing that happened. The team replaced him with a 6-time superbowl winning QB AND the defense went from being ranked 15th in the league to 5th in the league.There is just something wrong with his football DNA if he can't at least show improvement. He can say and try to practice all the right things, but I hope he CAN translate it to the field of play. He has some things that are very deep seeded in his DNA at the position that is concerning that have nothing to do with technique, knowing the scheme, reading D's, etc. He was absolutely HUMBLED with being cut and seeing what was basically his FULL team win a SB with the main thing missing being only him.
So, Taysom's Newly Created Position is to stand behind Jameis and position him for the throw...

Keep putting in work.
I can respect where you are coming from. The difference is that if Brady had come in and we went to the SB, no one would be saying that about Brees. Brees has cemented who he is. Brees' "football DNA" was never a question. He had certain intagibles, especially his feet, since college. There was something to his playing, processing, accuracy and pocket awareness that only heightened when he entered the NFL.From my perspective, it seems that far too much is made of the fact that Tampa won the superbowl after replacing Winston at QB. That fact is true but it is not the only thing that happened. The team replaced him with a 6-time superbowl winning QB AND the defense went from being ranked 15th in the league to 5th in the league.
Tom Brady was set to sign and play for the Saints until Brees was informed of the team's plans. Would we be saying the same thing about Brees' football DNA at the QB position if the only thing the team did was replace Brees with Brady and the Saints won it all? I don't think we would. In fact, Brees' and the Saints not winning it all despite having Brees, CGM and AK41 more than demonstrates that you need all pieces, including a top defense to win a Superbowl.
Winston has all the tools and can make all the throws. Now he has a new perspective, a Sean Payton coached offense with an All-pro WR, a top 5 ranked offensive line and the most versatile running back in the league. I'm excited to see what he will do.
He has had the same entourage and friends training him for a LONG time. As I have mentioned before, I hope he keeps seeking training and mentorship "outside of his box" for progressing and reinforcing "game time" skills that will translate to the field, not just athletic training.Is it just me or does JW’s trainers has him do weird workouts? I’m not saying that they are/are not beneficial, they just seem odd.
