Jameis Winston gives the weirdest pregame pump-up speech ever

It’s not like pregame speeches need to make sense. Ray Lewis made a living out of speeches that probably confused his teammates. He did it with flair, at least.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston tried to fire up his teammates before Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints and … well, the Buccaneers were probably all wondering what in the world he was talking about.


The “Eat a W” speech probably isn’t going to be a permanent staple for the Buccaneers considering the Saints blew them out, 30-10.

Winston was the star of “Hard Knocks” this summer, and one of the interesting moments with him was a speech before a preseason game that was weird, and way too long.

As it turns out, he had a way weirder speech planned for the regular season.
