TSL QB Check Down: Jameis Hot Steps And Cam Dabs Again 

The Tampa Bay Bucs (4-5) still arent a very good team, but Jameis Winston is a great player. As he continues to develop and carry Tampa in just his second NFL season, with each game that passes he shows us another remarkable facet of his game and does things on the football field that no other QB in the league can do.

During the third quarter of Sundays game against the Chicago Bears, Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston made this spectacular 39-yard touchdown pass to Mike Evans that set up the Buccaneers for a touchdown

He looked like Mike Vick with Atlanta and Johnny Manziel in college. It was a play reminiscent of Doug Flutie at his height in the 80s. Thats Jameis Winston. Hes everything rolled up in one.

People credit Cam Newton with being a force at QB and the supreme African-American signal caller, but Winston is younger, has the same body type, hes more fleet of foot, his arm strength is similar and his accuracy is probably better.

Its a great thing for the NFL to have two Black QBs who are considered elite and near the top of the NFL totem pole. I dont recall having two brothers that good balling at the same time since Warren Moon and Randall Cunningham.

Cams had a rough season with the Panthers being 3-6 and him getting beat like a pinata by opposing defenses. Its gotten so bad that Cam went back to the Dab dance on Sunday after a vintage, rugged TD rumble that gave the Carolina Panthers a 10-0 lead over the Chiefs.

They still lost 20-17, but it was good to see Cam having fun and trying to do something to remind his team of better days.

Cam said the dance was retired after last seasons Super Bowl run, but its obvious he is trying to recapture some of the magic, enjoyment and success of last season. The Panthers are sinking fast at 3-6, but they still have a fleeting chance to make the playoffs if they can get it together.

I suppose, putting the Dab back in effect is a first step.
