isn’t the only thing ailing the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The absence of a consistent running game and a leaky defense are also making it difficult to win.Winston threw five interceptions and also lost a fumble during a 37-26 loss to the Carolina Panthers Youth Oshane Ximines Jersey , giving him 87 giveaways in 62 career games — most by any player since the fifth-year quarterback entered the NFL in 2015.The closest challengers for that dubious distinction? Blake Bortles (76) and two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning (74), who no longer starts.Bruce Arians said Monday he has no plans to bench Winston, who’s making $20.9 million in the final season of the contract he signed as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 draft.The 66-year-old coach, who has said one of the biggest reasons he came out of retirement to lead the Bucs (2-4) was it was an opportunity to help Winston realize his potential as a pro, remains confident the quarterback can cut down on mistakes that undermine Tampa Bay’s chances for success if he eliminates a habit of trying to play Superman rather than simply throwing the ball away to avoid opposing pass rushers.”Incompletions don’t get you beat. Sacks and sack fumbles get you beat,” said Arians, who has also worked with Ben Roethlisberger, Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck and Carson Palmer during a long coaching career.Asked if any of the other quarterbacks he’s tutored ever had difficulty deciding when to give up on plays Womens Oshane Ximines Jersey , Arians said Roethlisberger was like that early in his career.”He would never throw a ball away,” Arians said. “Peyton Manning would throw it away in a heartbeat. Ben thought he could make a play out of anything, like Jameis does. He’s made a bunch of them, but he also got hurt a few times holding onto it like that.”Winston acknowledged Sunday that he has to do a better job of protecting the football.It was the fifth time in his career that he’s had at least four turnovers in a game. No other quarterback has more than two such games since Winston entered the league.Arians suggested the performance, coming on the heels of a four-game stretch in which Winston threw 10 TD passes vs. two interceptions, was part of the growing process.The coach acknowledged, though, if he has another disastrous outing any time soon, it would be cause for concern.”I think as we continue to grow together Authentic Oshane Ximines Jersey , it will get better and these games will be one in a million — not one every five,” Arians said.WHAT’S WORKINGKicker Matt Gay has rebounded nicely since missing two extra points, as well as a 34-yard field goal as time expired, that would have beaten the New York Giants on Sept. 22. The rookie is 4 for 4 on field goals and made all 11 of his extra points since.WHAT NEEDS HELPWith two starters — right tackle Demar Dotson and right guard Alex Cappa — out with injuries, the Bucs struggled to protect Winston, who was sacked seven times Sunday. And, even though Ronald Jones scored on a 5-yard run in the second quarter and Dare Ogunbowale added his first career TD on a 4-yard run late, the Panthers limited the running game to 42 yards on 14 attempts. And while part of that was related to playing from behind most of the day, it was by far the team’s least productive rushing effort of the season.STOCK UPWide receiver Chris Godwin continues to dazzle. He had 10 catches on 12 targets for 151 yards against Carolina Oshane Ximines Jersey Boys , his third straight 100-yard performance — fourth this season. He leads the team with 43 receptions for 662 yards and six TDs.STOCK DOWNArians said there’s one lineup change he’s considering during the bye week. Punt returner Bobo Wilson fumbled twice — losing one — against the Panthers. The coach said while Wilson is “fearless” in the role, the backup receiver is only averaging about 3 yards per return and the team needs more production.INJUREDThe Bucs will not practice as a team during the bye week, however Arians said outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul will work Tuesday and Wednesday as he prepares to return from a neck injury suffered during an offseason automobile accident. The 10th-year pro, who led Tampa Bay with 12½ sacks last season, is currently on the reserve/non-football injury list.KEY NUMBER21. Scoring drives of 70-plus yards yielded by Tampa Bay’s defense (14 touchdowns, seven field goals) in six games, including a 12-play, 99-yard march Carolina finished with Christian McCaffrey’s 1-yard TD Sunday.NEXT STEPSBye this week before playing at Tennessee on Oct. 27, the fourth of five consecutive games during a six-week stretch in which the Bucs will not play in their home stadium. The Giants have provided plenty of legitimate reasons for criticism of their current roster strategy http://www.giantslockerroom.com/authentic-michael-strahan-jersey , assuming they even have one. However, a recent report regarding rookie quarterback Daniel Jones feels like someone is piling on the team and the player.As crafted, the report that someone wanted Jones to work out as a tight end obviously originated with a team and not with Jones’ camp, since the explanation was that the team didn’t believe Jones was good enough to play quarterback. It feels so over the top and almost cartoonish that it’s very tempting to conclude that another franchise (maybe the other one that plays in New Jersey) wants to make the Giants look even worse for making him not just a first-round pick but the sixth overall pick.The lying that characterizes the pre-draft process surely lasts after the draft ends, with teams trying to create all sorts of false impressions regarding the guys they drafted (““) and the guys they didn’t (““). Would any team that was interested in Daniel Jones as a quarterback admit it now? And, more importantly for these purposes, why wouldn’t a team that wants to make things even more awkward for the Giants and Jones try to make the Giants and Jones look worse instead of better?That’s not a knock on the report, per se. The report wasn’t fabricated. But the information shared with the reporter may have been. If not fabricated, then possibly exaggerated or embellished.Regardless Kareem Martin Jersey , for the same reason that pre-draft reports regarding interest or lack thereof are inherently unreliable, post-draft reports regarding interest or lack thereof also are inherently unreliable. Or, at a minimum, they need to be viewed through the basic prism that: (1) the incentive to prevaricate is high; and (2) the cost for doing so is low.
