He should be careful.  Those cajun spices might burn his pecker if he sticks crab legs down his pants.

Also tbf, you're a baseball gal, sometimes a guy can hurl it with a scrawny looking arm. Pedro Martinez wasn't big. Sandy Koufax. And Randy Johnson was almost the Manut Bol of baseball he's so skinny and tall.

It's actually absurd that they're doing it this year though. Winston needed more time on the field when Brees was down last year, to see if you have something salvageable or if you have Cam Newton 2.0

And I get it, you maybe wanted to have him sit and watch. I'm not saying he needed to start every game Drew was out (though with how done Brees looked even before the injury I'd say it might not have hurt...), but at least a full couple of games to *see* if he can be in a game without f*cking things up.

Winston has enough talent to actually be good if he doesn't do stupid things all the time. Fark, if he wouldn't have had that 2000s Favre/Grossman mentality he'd be the guy whose dick is being sucked after a Tampa ring.

It's not actually scrawny, it's an angle and shoulder pads making it look that way. But yeah, having super muscular arms tends to have a negative effect on throwing power.

It's true in baseball. Most power servers in tennis have pretty skinny arms. The best QBs aren't really built and the really muscular QB examples in can think of are Tim Tebow and Taysom Hill, neither of whom are good. Building muscle tends to limit your range of motion and therefore the speed you can generate on a throw.

Anyway, apparently Jameis Winston was basically blind until last year. The Bucs knew he couldn't see (Arians admitted he couldn't read the scoreboard) and somehow never thought to actually test his vision or get it corrected. Obviously his playing time in New Orleans was limited last year but he went 8/12 with a TD and 0 INT. This preseason it looks like he had an INT in the first game (just like every other Saints QB did against Baltimore) but he was also the only one to throw a TD in that game and against the Jags he was 9/10 with 2 TD.

I feel like people thinking the Saints are going slip...god, if Winston could put up 5000 yards and 30+ TD WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO SEE...I think he'll be fine. Brees' arm was a noodle out there last year but I understand letting a Hall of Famer who meant so much to that city go out on his terms.
