Mid-season rookie review: Jameis Winston, Todd Gurley etc.


I believe Jameis Winston was given a fair assessment. It’s not one that a fan would give, but as an outsider who does not care about a particular team. However, Mariota sure got high regards. Hmm. CLICK FOR: Winston mid-season highlights

2015 stats (7 games): 85.6 passer rating, 58.6 completion percentage, 1,648 yards (235.4 ypg, 7.8 ypa), 10 touchdowns, 7 interceptions, 14 sacks; 24 rushes, 91 yards (3.8 ypc), 2 touchdowns; 1 fumble lost.

“The play of Winston has been about what I expected. He’s had a couple heavy-turnover games, but he’s also produced several big-time throws while leading his team to road victories. He can make every throw, and he’s shown the ability to extend plays without taking many sacks. Winston’s a clunky athlete, but he’s been very effective running the ball when necessary. He is going to have more hiccups in the second half of the season, but looks every bit the part of a future franchise quarterback.” – Reported by Daniel Jeremiah
