Florida State Football: Jimbo Fisher says Jameis Winston hasn't played up to his capability this spring


The Florida State Seminoles are the favorites to repeat as the national champions in 2014 and that’s due in large part because Heisman winner Jameis Winston will be returning to run the show on offense in his redshirt sophomore season. Florida State has already kicked off that journey with spring practices, but so far, head coach Jimbo Fisher isn’t exactly pleased with the way his quarterback has been performing.

Fisher recently told ESPN.com that he more or less would like to see Winston play more like–well, Winston.

“He hasn’t played up to his capability. He’s missed some throws,” FSU coach Jimbo Fisher told ESPN.com. “That’s part of it — you have to grind through it. Not everything is a utopia.”

While last year was a magical season for Winston, there are always areas that an athlete can improve in their game, and that’s basically all Fisher is saying here. He wants the leader of his team to keep improving, which in turn makes everyone around Winston improve as well.

And we saw during that undefeated season last year, this entire team revolves around Winston.
