Hello, I'm Lord, and this is another edition of SportsCastr news.
So the Saints offensive coordinator Peak Carmichael, had a conference with reporters and, of course, Jamis Winston turnovers came up in the conversation, Carmichael responds.
I think he's a talented football player and he's already done a lot of great things in this league.
We're excited to have it just in the meetings that we've had with these virtual meetings.
The one thing that stands out to me is that he is sharp, smart, and he asks the right questions.
And so he has that experience.
He's got that ability.
You see him throw the ball downfield.
He's got excellent arm strength.
There's a lot to be excited about, and we're looking forward to working with him now.
Carmichael, Even though he did answer the question, he didn't actually answer the question.
I mean, there there is questions on his interceptions.
Can he bring it down? Uh, would be more efficient that way.
Obviously, the whole narrative from last year.
Well, he's a turnover machine.
That's a lot of stick and interceptions in the season, not the NFL record, but that's a lot of interceptions.
But then you go back and you look at how he's been doing.
8% in interception completion, percentage interception percentage of 4.8%.
That is way too high.
You want to see that down closer to around 25 three is acceptable, but 25 is where you know you would like it.
Now you got quarterbacks like Drew Brees and and Ah, Tom Brady, who will sit around 2 to 1 a somewhere.
That's that's low.
But that's custom.
I mean, they're throwing like six interceptions is composed toe like 30 touchdowns.
You know, if you're sitting around 12 intercessions to 30 touchdowns, that's acceptable.
That's that's fairly acceptable now in his career.
That's the most he's had ever.
Now a sop****re season, he had 18 rookie season 15 all right.
He had 11 and then 14 last year. Now granted.
Granted last year only play 11 games and 13 games a year before, but still lower.
It still would have kept him around 15 to 18.
What seems like about what he's averaging a year if you take away last year where in which he had Bruce Arians, the guy who says, Throw the ball downfield now, even even when you're hurting I'm assuming because they thought that they had God one and Evans on the outside that he could just throw the ball downfield and figured that they would come down with it because they were, you know, those type of receivers that could do that right? He felt couple in that his head coach felt comfortable in that.
I don't think the majority of Jamis Winston interceptions were all on him.
There were a few of them where he missed bad decision making, Uh, like the ones right over the middle when he was under pressure, threw the ball away too fast, got picked off by guys like Darius Leonard, you know, right over the middle could have been helped.
When you're under pressure and you don't have a purser throw to either take the sack or throw the day going ball away.
Don't don't interception.
Live to see another down, right? Don't put your team in a bad situation.
Those are bad things to happen because it takes your team out of scoring for that position and give the other team an opportunity to score, if not score as soon as they get the ball because of the turnover.
You know it is a fumble recovery for a touchdown or pick six, which he through a few of last year.
I don't think James is going toe.
Have another one of these type seasons.
I honestly don't.
I think he's good enough to where he won't do that.
Oh, my, I do believe.
Sitting behind Drew Brees, he will learn how to work the field and use check downs.
I think if he picks the mind to Drew Brees and his offensive coordinator, Carmichael, he'll sit down.
See, this is not a team.
Sean Payton is not.
That's going to be like, Hey, you have to throw the ball downfield.
This is the place that I'm playing.
You gotta throw it down field 50% of the time.
This is it. Bruce Arians.
Okay, These air coaches that not only will work with the quarterback with what he does best, but we'll show him how to do what he does best to the best of his ability.
I think James will flourish under Sean Payton and Carmichael over there on the Saints.
I think he absolutely will, especially especially after Drew Brees retires, because Drew Brees is another one of those guys that, you know, he he knows when to get rid of the football.
He knows when to take a chance with the football.
You can't take a chance consistently now, another situation like, uh, very similar to Philip Rivers last year, yet both of them had a lot of interceptions.
They found themselves down late in games a lot and they were trying like it to just keep scoring the football, their coaches and elephants and coordinators would like.
Throw the ball, throw the ball, get it downfield.
We've got to score.
He's not gonna be in those type of situations He's on a team, works like you know what will control the ball, play good defense and control the ball while we have it to keep it away from the other offense so they don't have to score so much so we don't have to score so much.
This is a much better situation for James.
James is not a game managing quarterback, but he's gonna learn how to be a game managing quarterback so that he will have both acts.
That's that he could balance, which will go good for him long term when he gets older, when you know that arm strength starts to dissipate a little bit, when those legs start to dissipate a little bit, he'll learn how to be a game manager like Tom Brady.
Like Drew Brees, right? I think that he's got the greatest chance he's ever had being worried that and that's probably why he was like, Dude, I'll be your backup for a year for a $1,000,000.
Perhaps the smartest decision Jamis Winston has ever done ever.
And I'll tell you what I think.
As of right now, if he played for new, if he was the starter, if Drew Brees knock on wood it Drew Brees got hurt in preseason or in Week one or something like that and and Winston came in, I think Winston would lead this team to the division title over Tampa Bay.
I would not be something because Western's got talent.
All he's gotta do is listen to his coaches.
I think listening to his coach last year is what got in 30 interceptions.
Sean Payton is not gonna make him force the football.
He's not gonna make him sit in that pocket for, like, eight seconds to a last possible second and throw the day on football deep downfield all the time.
That's not Sean Payton style.
You've got guys like album Camara that you know you could throw to outside real quick.
You know he's got.
He's got tasted Hill on that football field with you that that's gonna use his athletic ability to get open quickly so you could dump on the ball and he could do something with it after the catch.
You got guys on that team that could do this.
I think Winston would do better right now.
Worry that that even with the talent that he had on 10 I think he would do better on the Saints right now.
Then he would be as a starter for Tampa Bay right now.
Even with Gronk on that team, I think he would still be better in New Orleans just because it's a better fit for him to better fit because it will challenge him to do things that he doesn't like to do as much but will force him to do it so that it will incorporate that in with his regular skill sets, make him more of a complete quarterback in the NFL.
It will be interesting to see it will be.
It will be very interesting to see coming another.
What? I mean, we may not see too much of it this year because obviously, Drew Brees and giving away a starting position.
But maybe next year, maybe next year.
I mean, you got to remember him.
He had, Ah, he had a rating of over 90 the two years prior, not a Q B r.
Just a rating of over 90.
Uh, now, Yeah, he threw a lot of stinking yards last year.
319 yards and we're a throat that much.
When you throw the ball 626 times in a single season, you're going to end up having issues that tells me they were absolutely one dimensional.
They did not run the football right, which means that other teams just drop back in coverage.
So it was a lot, a lot mawr, tighter windows for him to throw to.
Then it was for a most quarterbacks in the NFL and that also leads to MAWR interceptions.
Give Jamis Give James the time that he that he needs.
He's gonna end up being a good quarterback in this league.
He just he just needs to the right situation, which he's finally found himself in.
I mean, he's gonna have hopefully a year to sit back and learn from a great offensive mind who knows how to work with a quarterback.
He's gonna sit with a quarterback that knows how to do well, what he needs to learn to do.
Well, you can't.
You can't ask for anything better situation than what Jamis Winston has found himself in right now, even though I'm sure he wants to be a starting quarterback.
And that's why he went to the Saints, because he knows that, you know.
Additionally, Drew Brees ain't gonna be there much longer, so he's in a win win win situation.
All he has to do is just sit, not make any money for a year and learn and get better.
And then what he's planning on doing is popping out in 2021 Drew Brees.
Drew Brees retires this year and just explode onto the field onto the scene.
End up hitting that comeback player of the year and there's a good chance he might do that.
