ONN – Buccaneers Changing Offense For Tom Brady, But Not For Jameis Winston, Is Racist
For years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jameis Winston toiled in a long-passing-game offense. First, by Dirk Koetter, then by Bruce Arians. Even though it was clear that the answer to Winston’s woes was a spread, short-passing game offense with a power-running game component, the Bucs continued to throw Winston into some of the most inflexible offenses I have ever seen.
Last year, Carson Palmer, who played in Arians’ Offense when he was with the Arizona Cardinals, said that Winston needed another year to learn his approach. Well, the Bucs got rid of Winston, even though he set passing records in the offense, and got Tom Brady from New England. The white-oriented media fed anyone who would listen (not me) the idea that Brady would be better than Winston in the same offense. (And in the process, seemed to forget that Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels existed.)
But now this:

Well, the news that the offense will not be the same should tell anyone who knows football that such an action is a admission that the previous design was bad. And yet, they had Jameis Winston play in that bad offense, and then get hurt in it, and eventually driven from the team because of it. Yet, all the while, they feed the racist media the idea that it was Jameis Winston’s fault.
Now we know it was not. The offense was so badly designed, they would not ask Tom Brady to play in it, the way it was.
Folks. That’s racism.
Jameis Winston knows football, but the Bucs forced Arians system on him, rather than asking him how to make it better. So, he makes mistakes in a bad system, and they blame him for the system. Wow.
Former Tampa Bay Wide Receiver Louis Murphy said it best in 2016 and in a since-removed statement to The Undefeated: “”Racism is still prevalent today. I don’t want to get into it too much, but yeah, he (Jameis Winston) deals with stuff (in rival stadiums). Everybody deals with stuff. Racism is still alive. It’s real.”
And J.R. Gamble wrote this for The Shadow Leaque:
I even started writing stories about the quarterback position finally being post-racial. All of that sounds good and it definitely puts non-people of color more at ease when we choose to ignore the years of systemic racism that has hindered the success of Black quarterbacks in the NFL.
Marcellus Bennett was also outspoken about the NFL’s racism problem: “Peyton Manning threw 28 interceptions in 98, Eli (Manning) 27 in 2013. Jameis Winston threw 30 in 19 and led the league in passing. But look at the narratives around them at the time.Arizona Cardinals couldn’t wait to fire Steve Wills to hire an up and coming white boy. While Matt Patricia gets another chance after sucking for 2 years. Why?
And Tampa Bay Buccaneers Coach Bruce Arians Was All-In For Giving Up His Offensive Approach For Brady, But Not For Winston

Arians: “He’s got six rings.” But Coach Bruce seemed to forget they were all under Bill Belichick.
Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland News Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
