The Quarterback Whisperer has lost his voice. For all the talk of Jameis Winston becoming a more mature player under quarterback guru Bruce Arians, the Bucs franchise player looked suspiciously similar to past seasons in the season opener on Sunday.Winston fumbled. He threw interceptions. He failed to hit any deep passes. On a day when the Tampa Bay defense finally played well enough to win, the Bucs offense gave the game away.Admittedly, this is not a disaster. At least not yet. The Bucs discovered a running game with Ronald Jones and the defense gave hope for some brighter afternoons. But a team cannot play as undisciplined as Tampa Bay did on Sunday and expect to win many football games.Here’s other instant analysis from the Tampa Bay Times’ Bucs coverage team: MORE BUCS: At least the Bucs have a credible defense, and other things we learned Sunday Martin Fennelly, columnist, @mjfennelly: The first half of half of this game was a modern art masterpiece, not the way Arians wanted to begin. It was penalty-filled, mistake-ridden. We nearly asked Tim McGraw to come out and play another set. TV should have blocked out the second half in the common interest. As it was, two inept football teams were on display, and the Bucs proved to be more inept when it mattered, lead by Winston, who, with three interceptions seems well on the way to not figuring this out. Personal favorite: In the first half, the 49ers had three touchdowns nullified by penalties and the Bucs had two, but give the Bus extra credit because their two TDs were caught by the same guy (Cameron Brate) and wiped out by holds on the same guys (Demar Dotson). Ol’ Tim should have just kept on playing and left it at that. MORE BUCS: Kwon Alexander’s short return to Tampa Bay Rick Stroud, Bucs beat writer, @NFLStroud: Welcome to the 2019 season. Looked a lot like the 2018 season. So many expectations. So many bad decisions with the football. So many turnovers and pick sixes. So much for the start of the Bruce Arians era. Jameis Winston still is making bad decisions. But caution. It’s one game. At this point last season the Bucs were 1-0. MORE BUCS: The Arians era starts with a thud Eduardo A. Encina, Bucs/pro sports enterprise writer, @EddieintheYard : Winston threw three interceptions. The first two might not have been his fault. Seems like the third one, in which he lofted the ball into the air pure for plucking, definitely seemed to be an error in judgement. Still, Winston did not have a good game and didn’t make good decisions. After all this time swooning over the marriage of Bruce Arians and Winston, the honeymoon is over. Who would have thought the running game would carry the Bucs offense? The defense deserved better. You wouldn’t know it from the scoreboard, but it only allowed one touchdown and held the 49ers under 300 yards total offense. But man, they have a lot of things to correct in five days before Thursday’s game in Carolina, and the biggest issue is getting this offense in sync.
