Lamar Jackson will probably be named the NFL MVP but without a doubt the league's leading game changer is Jameis Winston.

The greatest thing I ever heard about Jameis Winston: he has the ability to keep both teams in the game

I was wondering what QB guru Bruce Arians was thinking about Jameis since his contract is up.

No further need to wonder.

"Bruce Arians was asked about possible visible issues for Jameis Winston: "Yeah, he's nearsighted. He can't read the scoreboard, but he see the guys in front of him, so he's fine." I asked if contacts were considered. "He's got goggles that he practices in sometimes.""

Some QBs are inconsistent from game to game, such as Fitzmagic and Fitztragic, but Winston seems to mix terrific and terrible into each game he plays.

Vinny Testaverde explained all the picks he threw by admitting that he was colorblind. He must have been pretty bad off. He couldn't have had an easier career path color wise. He went from one orange team (Hurricanes) to another (Buccaneers) to another (Browns).

I guess it's a good thing that NFL games are played during hunting season. Wouldn't want to have Vinny wandering loose in the forest with a high powered rifle.

Vinny is still the Bucs career INT leader by a good margin. Jameis would have to have another season as "productive" as 2019 to get close to Vinny's total.
