Maryland scored more than half of their points in garbage time today, when the game was already over. This is like saying that NC State scored 17 on FSU's defense today.
Prior to the FSU game, Clemson had only given up more than 14 points once, in the first week against Georgia.
Sure, FSU's defense whooped on Clemson, but so did Winston. He did anything he wanted to do against the #3 ranked team in country, in their house. He's absolutely destroyed everyone he's faced, every week. No one's crowned him the GOAT, but you're blind if you can't see he's special.
I didn't say he wasn't special. I just think the odds have been stacked to his favor.
Winston is having an incredible season. It almost doesn't make sense how good it's been, and it's for this reason that I question his body of work to this point.
Anytime things are going this good for someone other factors have to be accounted for.
I see a Oline that can pick up a 5 man blitz. I see a shutdown defense that scores off turnovers.
I see a team that's collectively superior in every area when it comes to the in conference competition.
I just want to see how Winston reacts when the odds are not stacked in his favor.

Sorry man, I could not disagree more. Jameis doesn't play "yard ball," I have no idea how you can even conclude that. If anyone in CFB does that, its Manziel.
Winston plays an NFL style game, and shows extremely high football iq
You're right. "Yard ball" was not appropriate. All things aside I hope he's as good as he looks.
