John Lynch Jersey
The Arizona Uber driver who accused Jameis Winston of groping her has filed a lawsuit against the Buccaneers quarterback. The suit was filed Tuesday per Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times.Per Baker John Lynch Jersey , the driver said through her lawyer John Clune - who was the lawyer in the sexual assault case against Winston in 2012 - that she is “unimpressed by his continued lack of honesty or awareness into his behavior.” And that “maybe a more direct financial penalty will get his attention. He needs to learn from this and have some genuine insight or pay the penalty.”Winston was suspended three games by the NFL for the incident when the NFL decided there was enough evidence to support the accuser’s claim. Winston accepted the punishment, did not appeal, and issued a statement following the announcement;The driver has cited “emotional distress as well as future therapy expenses” and is looking for “damages to punish and deter such conduct.”There will be more to this story as news becomes available and details emerge. As of now, there has been no word from Winston or his camp. It doesn’t matter if Jameis Winston or Ryan Fitzpatrick is at quarterback for the Buccaneers. A porous defense keeps undermining Tampa Bay’s chances of winning.The Bucs (3-5) have lost five of six following a 2-0 start. Neither changing quarterbacks nor firing defensive coordinator Mike Smith has been an answer to ending a tailspin that’s dropped the team into a familiar hole: last place in the NFC South, where they’ve finished six of the last seven seasons.“I don’t think the past equals the future,” coach Dirk Koetter said after Sunday’s 42-28 loss to the Carolina Panthers, a game the Bucs trailed 35-7 at one point. “We’ve got to play better football, more consistent football. We have to get off to better starts. We’ve got to be in the hunt in (the) turnover battle.”The Bucs are first in the NFL in passing offense and second in total yards. But well as they’ve moved the ball through eight games, they’re just as bad defensively in allowing a league-high 275 points (34.4 per game) and ranking 30th among 32 teams against the pass.More Tampa Bay Buccaneers newsNFL history: Buccaneers become first team with two female coaches on staffBucs agree to terms with LB Bucannon, WR Perriman, punter Pinion in free agencyBuccaneers reportedly set to sign Breshad Perriman after WRvoided agreement with BrownsBuccaneers re-sign offensive tackle Donovan Smith to 3-year, $41.25 million contractJaguars CB Jalen Ramsey catches a TD on offense as AFC thumps NFC in rainy Pro Bowl in OrlandoTo make matters worse, Tampa Bay hasn’t forced a turnover in a club-record five consecutive games.Winston lost his starting job after throwing four interceptions two weeks ago. Fitzpatrick flourished early in the season filling in while Winston was serving a three-game suspension. However, in his last three starts the Bucs have been outscored 103-27 in the opening half.Inconsistency on offense has been part of the problem. Shoddy defense has been a recurring theme, even in the games the Bucs have won.Carolina scored on five straight possessions during one stretch of the first half to build a 28-point lead. Fitzpatrick rallied the team within 35-28 in the fourth quarter before the Panthers put away the game.The loss dropped the Bucs to 2-3 in games started by Fitzpatrick. Winston, who’s thrown 10 interceptions in four games, is 1-2.A common denominator in Tampa Bay’s three victories is the Bucs have played mostly with the lead and found a way to hold off New Orleans, Philadelphia and Cleveland late.In the other five games 鈥?all losses 鈥?opponents have compiled double-digit leads in the first half Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey , and the offense has spent the second half trying to make up ground.Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul said players have to own the ineffectiveness.“It’s frustrating, but that’s on the players. It’s not on the coaches. It’s on us, it’s on me,” Pierre-Paul said. “I’m tired of the coaches saying they have to take it because it’s up to the players to play ball.”Koetter said poor tackling was the primary culprit against the Panthers. Mistakes on offense and special teams contributed to falling by 28 in the second quarter.“We actually did start fast on defense,” Koetter said Monday. “On those five straight drives where they scored, on three of those drives we put them in horrible field position with an interception, two sacks, a punt return and a fake punt.”Fitzpatrick rallied the team from a big second-half deficit for the second straight week, only to fall short in the end, throwing for 243 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions.Not good enough to win, but encouraging enough the Koetter said the 35-year-old will start again Sunday at home against Washington.“We know we have the talent, it’s just we can’t keep digging ourselves in these holes, especially on the road,” Fitzpatrick said.“I don’t know that there is an answer or a magical formula or anything; it’s just frustrating right now to not play well and then play well in spurts,” the quarterback added. “We’re just not a very consistent team and not a consistent offense right now.”
