The entertaining Jameis Winston isn’t content with making spectacular plays. Instead, he wants to make the right plays, something he felt he didn’t do in his two-touchdown performance in Florida State’s 54-6 win over Bethune-Cookman.

Yikes, talk about being your own harshest critic.

Winston was specifically unhappy with this play, in which he managed to miraculously avoid two defenders before throwing a touchdown pass. To those watching on TV, the play was a thing of beauty. But Winston knew it was a mistake:

I knew what I did. As soon as I saw (the blitzer come free) I was like man, I didn’t sight the protection that way. I should have. I should have sighted it out and we should have run one of our sights on the backside. And I was like, oh, man, I messed up. So now I’ve got to do something. So at least I can throw a touchdown while I’m going to get yelled at in the film room (USA Today Sports).

Winston’s ability to notice his own mistakes is a valuable tool, one that will certainly help him when the Seminoles start playing tougher competition. Florida State’s next two games are against Boston College and Maryland. They then have a bye week before their anticipated game against the Clemson Tigers.
