JPP On Cusp Of Bucs History

December 7th, 2018

Near a franchise mark.

Jason Pierre-Paul has been a godsend this season.

He already snapped the heinous, 12-season drought of no Bucs player getting double-digit sacks. The fact it took so long says a whole lot about how the Bucs have been run since Chucky was jettisoned.

But JPP has four more chances this season to tie a franchise record with sacks. JPP (11.5 sacks this season) already has two games with multiple sacks. If he can get another this month to bring his total to three, he will have tied a Bucs record for fifth-most multiple-sack games in a season.

Two names who own that record are Bucs royalty: Lee Roy Selmon and Simeon Rice. Also, Chidi Ahanotu and Santana Dotson also had three multiple-sack games in a season for the Bucs.

And to think JPP was had for a third-round pick.

Joe honestly doesn’t know where the Bucs would be without JPP.

    We were done by Halloween with him playing at his peak.

  3. Just another guy Says:

    He’s been a great addition to the team! We needed a fresh leader to motivate the team and getting rid of Smith (finally) and replacing him with Duffner as the best move for the defense. Monken calling the offense has transformed our production on offense

  4. El_Buc941 Says:

    Man he was a steal! I wonder how the saints feel about trading their 2019 1st rounder to move up for Davenport. Haven’t heard his name all year.lol

    JPP is the man we need to get a CB in the 1st rd.

  7. Trevor in Orlando Says:

    Joe, Simeon has the Bucs record with 5 games with at least 2 sacks in a season. In fact it was 5 consecutive games, which at the time (and i think still is) an NFL record for consecutive games with multiple sacks.

    I love the addition of JPP, but don’t want to short change the best pass rusher (not necessarily best DE) this team has ever had.

    “Says a whole lot about how the Bucs have been run since Chucky was jettisoned.”

    Says even more about how the Bucs have been run since Rich MacKay was jettisoned.

    One Super Bowl with Rich. Let him go, then six years of decline followed by a decade of drench.

  9. Calbucsfan Says:

    As often as us Buc loyalists bash Jason Licht for some of his draft and free agent decisions, we should all give him a big thank you for bringing in JPP.

    THANK YOU JASON!

    No can you please fix the RB, OL and DB issues too? PLEASE!

  10. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Hope he does it against the Saints!

  11. OneBucPerson Says:

    He’s also 5 sacks away from tying Sapp for the most sacks by a Buc in franchise history.

  12. tmaxcon Says:

    Too bad bucs history is irrelevant to the real NFL…. you know teams that actually compete more than 2 out of 42 years…..

    Believe it or not, I agree with you.

    However, hindsight is 20-20.

    Although most of us had already figured out that Smitty had to go, there was also the lack of talent on the defensive roster. Asking Mike Smith to succeed with the talent he was given was asking the impossible. So I can understand the reasons for keeping him part of this year. They had to see what he could do with talent.

    Davenport has flashed and played well when healthy. He missed most of camp and then has been hobbled due to a toe injury lately. He currently has four sacks in nine games. Not bad for a rookie DE that hasn’t been healthy most of the season. He was honestly my desired pick in the draft and I think his potential is excellent. The last time I had a DESIRED pick that the Saints took and we didn’t, that guy was Cameron Jordan… we got freaking Adrian Clayborn, who was completely off my draft board due to the fact that he lacked burst, production his senior season, skipped out on the Senior Bowl, and due to the condition with his arm, could really only play RDE despite having a skill set suited more for LDE. It’s easy to see how that turned out.

    Howard is impressed with JPP.
    You know you’re a real man when you come into a poorly run organization (I’m talking about Glazers NOT Koetter and Licht) and help make it a lot better.

    Thanks bro!

  16. Bucs541 Says:

    JPP also has a chance to tie Sapp for most sacks in a season.

    i dont think it wouldve been impossible had smitty played to the strength of his players…..similar to what duff is doing now….

    @ATrain- Kindly drop the mic sir!

  19. SenileSenior Says:

    Thee acquisition of JPP and Nassib may have tipped the balance for Jason Licht this year. These moves may have saved his job.
