Former FSU quarterback Jameis Winston heard some criticism from former NFL quarterback David Carr Thursday. Winston responds hours later.
Jamies Winston is currently a free agent looking to sign with a team before the season begins. He was replaced in Tampa Bay when Tom Brady left New England to sign with the organization.
After five years in Tampa, Winston is looking to start a new chapter and lots of videos with him working out have been surfacing online.
A video surfaced Thursday of Winston working on moving in the pocket with his trainer when former NFL quarterback David Carr felt the need to post his thought on the drill.
The comment was not well received, even people in the comments were saying Carr had no business posting what he posted. Here’s what transpired with Winston’s response at the end:
Hey bro I have nothing but love for you! Reach out to help or mind your business though. I’ve been working with my personal trainer since I was 14! We built this from the bottom and we’re still building. Treat others how you want to be treated bro! 🤫 #Lahater #SocialDistancing pic.twitter.com/jVH5BVid60

Jameis Winston is correct here. He responds in a positively, but at the same time letting Carr know he needs to respect the work he put in with the same trainer that helped him win a national championship and Heisman Trophy at Florida State while becoming the No. 1 overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft.
Of course, Carr is a former No. 1 overall draft pick as well, but Winston has already surpassed every stat possible that’s worth pointing too. Not to mention, if anyone is going to talk about working in the pocket, Carr should be the last one to do it since he was sacked 267 times in just 94 career games.

There’s a good side-by-side comparison of stats of the two players. Winston has nearly double the number of touchdowns, more passing yards, and has won more games than Carr while playing for a subpar organization.
Maybe Carr will think twice before posting his thoughts on something when he’s not in a position to do so?
