From being the youngest Heisman Trophy winner to the first overall pick to highs and lows as the Bucs starter to serving as the Saints backup QB, Jameis Winston has had a truly fascinating career to this point. On this episode, Winston discusses his past, present and future with fellow Seminole, Bryant McFadden. The guys start with a lengthy conversation on the Florida State days. Jameis details his love for baseball (2:30) and what led him to choosing FSU over in-state schools like Alabama and Auburn (5:40). We hear about his relationship with Jimbo Fisher (7:00), his mentality during his redshirt season (11:00) and get to relive the magic of the 2013 season that ended with a title and the most prestigious individual award out there (14:30). Why does that Noles team remain overlooked? And does Winston himself get enough credit for his outstanding collegiate career in which he only lost 1 game? The conversation then shifts focus to the NFL and the emotions of seeing your former team capture the Super Bowl. Jameis spent five seasons with Tampa Bay and shares some interesting thoughts on how he felt watching Tom Brady lead the Bucs to a boat parade (30:15). We uncover his reasons for joining the Saints (33:30), how much Drew Brees means to him (39:30) and his outlook on the upcoming QB competition with Taysom Hill (46:30). And we have to know: where did 'Eat a W' come from (51:30)? Superlatives signal the end of the show (54:00), but not before we ask for Jameis to name the best wide receiver in the NFC South.
