Winston's 20-yard run on third-and-19 helped the Bucs win.

Winston's 20-yard run on third-and-19 helped the Bucs win.

Sunday, 7 p.m.

There are passers who look pretty in the pocket and invincible on the stat sheet. The throw as if they are posing for a painting, and the ball leaves their hands in a spiral. They stack up 300-yard games and pose with cheerleaders.

Jameis Winston is not one of those.

There are athletes who run like the wind, who are nimble-footed and elusive. They can make a linebacker look bad on their way to the end zone. They collect 100-yard rushing days. They break records.

Winston is not one of those, either.

Winston is a ballplayer. Only that. And bless him for it.

Lets not forget the Saints were dead meat for their past two games before getting UP at home for Carolina. They will be deflated Sunday, Bucs will win easy.

I think the Saints will be a lot like the Falcons. Dangerous. I usually think their keys to success are a running game and a pass rush. If they can establish those two things, they have a chance. But that’s just me.

QB Winston is a lot like Ben Roethlisberger. He’s not pretty, but he gets the job done.

The Saints are coming to town with something to prove to themselves. They just lost a heartbreaker to the Panthers and Brees knows that Winston and the Bucs would love to sweep them like they just did Atlanta. We have to be ready for a battle with a lot of pride on the line! Go Bucs ! Beat the Saints,and let’s have some fun doing it.
