Jameis Winston's pregame "Eat a 'W'" speech didn't go over too well the last time he gave it in front of the cameras and teammates.
Before the Bucs-Saints game in New Orleans on Nov. 5, Winston formed a "W" with the fingers on his right hand and proceeded to pretend to chew on and lick his fingers while asking teammates repeatedly, "Who wants to eat a 'W' tonight?"
Their reaction appeared to range from bewilderment (DeSean Jackson) to "this again?" (Demar Dotson). Watch for yourself.
The video went viral. The motivation did not. Tampa Bay lost, 30-10.
But on Dec. 3 after a win over the Lions, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco did his own "W" eating.
Winston re-injured his shoulder in that loss at New Orleans and missed the next three games. Upon his return, there weren't anymore of Winston's W-eating pregame talks.
But if you think Flacco or anyone else shamed him into giving up a motivational switch he has flipped at least since his Florida State days, think again.
When the FSU basketball team rallied from 18 points down to beat No. 11 Clemson 81-79 in overtime Wednesday, Seminoles sophomore guard Trent Forrest, the hero of the comeback, celebrated in Winston's W-eating style.
