DeSean Jackson weighs in on upcoming quarterback decision

How does D-Jax think the Bucs should handle the quarterback position?

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Everyone knows the decision looming ahead for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

With quarterback Jameis Winston suspended for three games, many expected the team to flop out to an 0-3 start. My, what a world we live in.

One month ago, the Bucs were one of the lowest rated teams in power rankings, mock drafts, Madden, everything.

Now, DeSean Jackson leads the league in receiving and Ryan Fitzpatrick is the hottest quarterback in the media since Joe Namath guaranteed victory.

So, how does the leading receiver see his team’s upcoming quarterback decision?

“Honestly man, he’s playing on fire right now, and the way the team is rallying behind him and just playing lights out football you have to kind of honor it. You can’t take the hot man out.”

Speaking on NFL Total Access, Jackson was asked about the situation and gave his honest opinion.

It’s one that some will agree with, and others will not. Some will say it’s a good problem to have, and in many ways it is. But for those who have to make the decision, it’s a heavy benefit which will not likely be received well no matter which direction they go.
