You’re reading that headband correctly (not headline, headband).

Shaq Barrett marched into the Den of Depression yesterday telling everyone he “CAN’T BE STOPPED.”

And he wasn’t lying.

Barrett shocked the football world with his fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth sacks of the season against the Giants, this time dropping a can of whoop ass on veteran left tackle Nate Solder.

The master of what Joe calls the Strip-Shaq, Barrett forced another forced fumble yesterday, his second of the season, and he leads the NFL in both sacks and tackles for loss.

Joe can only imagine what Jason Pierre-Paul is thinking watching Barrett do this from the right edge.

This Barrett explosion Joe of when defensive end Greg White (who became Stylez White) burst onto the 2007 Bucs with a fury, recording eight sacks and a whopping seven forced fumbles as a 28-year-old rookie helping lead a Bucs team to the playoffs. (Imagine that!)

How refreshing it is to see a Tampa Bay free agent defensive lineman play with his hair on fire and dominate.

It would be downright stunning if Barrett can keep pouring it on. Hell, it would be downright stunning if he can manage another seven sacks over the final 13 games has he draws more attention from defenses. That would give Shaq 15 sacks on the season — and at least $20 million guaranteed in a new contract from the Bucs or someone else.

    ENOUGH WITH THE “look at me” Your team lost historically to a rookie and a team with no D!
    The picture was taken before the game.–Joe

  2. DB55 Says:

    I think the problem yesterday is the Jameis didn’t throw 8 TDs with is inaccurate arse. That BOY needs to get cut immediately.

    Daniel Jones is a superstar and bona fife franchise qb bc he beat the Bucs.

    Am I the only one that finds this hilarious?

  5. El Buco Realisto Says:

    They are going to over pay him next off season, who will then quickly get injured and never be the same player again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2020 will reveal even more answers to the sheep, that the “real” fans already know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    “Enough with the look at me!”

    Sorry being black in a picture upsets you so much

  9. DB55 Says:

    Daniel Jones was so poised unlike the ATM who suffers from ptsd after taking 300,000 hits behind Demar Dotson’s pro bowl blocking.

    We should trade him for Mariota (oh wait), Baker (oh wait), Jimmy G (oh wait), can we just trade him for a QBs who can cover, block and kick?

    Asking for some friends.

  10. BucAllNight Says:

    Btw can you imagine him on one side w a healthy JPP coming off the other… Damn we cant put it all together…

    Thats a scary thought w Suh/Vea pushing the middle.
    Soon come!!
    Go Bucs!!!

  11. IsrBuc Says:

    Great player but let’s not pretend Daniel jones was shaken up yesterday

  12. Loyaltotheend Section 312 Says:

    Lichts best FA signing in 6 seasons

  13. DB55 Says:

    You know what I haven’t heard today, like at all? How great Todd Bowles defense is. Lmao.

    Last week the “real fans” kept talking about Bowles and his wonder stellar Defensive mind.

    No, not like the Jets def bc he was merely the HC. His real strength is as a DC under Arains. 4 TDs to a rookie QBs playing in his first nfl game. And next week the redskins and Raheem Morris will make Daniels look like the over-reached bum that he truly is.

  14. DB55 Says:

    Fml when did he go to the Falcons. Lol. Point still stands.

  15. D-Rome Says:

    The Bucs needs to lock him up for the rest of his career. This can’t be another Michael Bennett situation.

    On the flip side, between JPP last season and Shaq Barrett this season those two are showing that having a pass rush doesn’t make your secondary better.

  16. JGhoti86 Says:

    I think there might not be a franchise tag option when it comes to Winston this upcoming offseason. Barrett gets 15 sacks and if you don’t get a deal done, you HAVE to franchise tag him. You cannot let another young, productive pass rusher walk away from this organization again, and then say we need a find a pass rusher. You got one.

    I get that QB is the most important position on the field, but Barrett is the best player (sans Evans, but it’s been consistent and downright dominant for Barrett) on the field this year for the Bucs. We will have had 6 years of Winston to make a decision moving forward. You either find a new QB or you sign him to a deal.

    But you cannot let Barrett go. Point. Blank. Period.

  17. LocalJoker Says:

    Shaq may soon get some help. Greg Auman reports JPP spotted at his locker after a workout at OBP. Good news!

  18. tmaxcon Says:

    put dotson on the giants and shaq has 8 sacks yesterday alone

    shaq finishes and plays hard every play. very refreshing after watching a decade of quitting led by captain blowout cancer93..

    Sack barrett

  20. AlteredEgo Say: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    SB is just a tease… doubt he’ll be a Buc next year, I’d love him to be but he will be making the most important decision of his professional career and he is in the position to make about both money and a ring

  21. Bucamania Says:

    Shaq is the man. Finally a pass rushing demon to watch! Still not good enough for this secondary or sloths.

  22. AlteredEgo Say: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    DB55 … you are buckling under the pressure…

  23. widerightandleft Says:

    Who was the bucs first qb? You don’t know without looking do you? Parnell Dickinson .Saw him and pretty much all the ensuing futility ,including 0-26.
    Instead of jock sniffing ,check out the overall winning pct of this team lifetime. Somewhere around 33% You can be satisfied with (1 ) players accomplishments ,however its a team sport,sport!

  24. widerightandleft Says:

    Really, pulling a race card in a sports blog. Pleeeasse !

  25. AlteredEgo Say: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    Parnell was not the first Buc QB Steve Spurrier was … but Parnell threw a beautiful deep ball… I was in the stands..

  26. DB55 Says:

    Lol. Touché. I sense a theme 🤣

  27. BetterBucFan Says:

    Wow that’s the first positive thing I think I’ve ever seen tmaxcon say.

  28. TampaTown Says:

    Shaq Barrett, the difference between and boy and a man. Keep up the good work, we are already in love with you and hope you stay for a long time!

  29. RealBucFan Says:

    I love this Dude! But lets see what happens when the opponents start gameplanning to take him out of the game like they would for Von Miller or Kalil Mack.. If he can finish the season with 15 sacks with the added attention coming he might be the real deal and worth a $20 million contract (what its probably gunna take)

  30. LordCornelius Says:

    Tampa Bay “real fans” = internet trolls that celebrate a loss

    Hell yeah man. You are killing it!

  31. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I agree that we have to find a way to re-sign Shaq…….but that is going to be very difficult…..Nassib may be the odd man out…..we can’t pay Nassib, Shaq & JPP in the same year while giving Jameis his $35 mil…(sarcasm)

    Something will have to give.

    Methinks we will get a comp pick or two next year (finally)

  32. tmaxcon Says:


    love bucfan looking for positives but how is a comp pick going to help this train-wreck from embarrassing the sport of football every week???? just curious never heard of a franchise turning it around on a comp pick

  33. BucsBandit Says:

    DB55 – quit yer crying about Winston getting ‘touched’ during the game. How do you think Shaq got his 4 sacks? LOL. He took Jones to the ground and others ‘hit’ Jones throughout the game. That’s how the NFL works.

    Yet Jones remained poised throughout the game regardless of hits and sacks. The Giants found a helluva gem in drafting Jones. He’s clearly going to be their franchise QB for the next 10+ years. I’d trade Winston for Jones in a heartbeat.

  34. FR Says:

    Somebody email Winston and tell him its ok to throw the back away and not take a sack.

  35. SOEbuc Says:

    He is no joke in this type of defense. Trade broke neck mountain right now for a RT. Young defense could be elite in two years with Bowels. Sign Suh for one more year. Draft another monster in the middle first round 2021. Though Barkley went out early, our run defense was great against him (8 carries for 10 yards). Don’t know if that means anything.

  36. Son of Kobe Faker Says:

    “Resigning Barnett is going to cost a minimum of 20 million per”

  37. Todd Says:


    “Joe can only imagine what Jason Pierre-Paul is thinking watching Barrett do this from the right edge.”

    JPP didn’t even watch the game. He was too busy laying down digital tracks with his new electronic toys. Guy doesn’t give a sh!t about his team or teammates. We should have cut his lazy, non-engaged a$$. He’s the POOREST excuse of a teammate that I’ve ever witnessed.

  39. Bird Says:


    You and Ndog are children. Really bad look for you.
    Quick crying man. Nobody cares. Chit baby man
    You are doing the cut him now chant just like Ndog

    You rip into almost everyone on the team at some point
    Yet if someone makes a comment or criticism about number 3 , it’s uncalled for and way out of line . “How could they talk about my man like that “. Actually kind of creepy if you ask me

    Get over yourself.
    Jameis had a great 1st half . Him and mike Evans could not be stopped.
    Not sure what happened in second half though but offense disappeared until final drive.
    Kicker blew it in the end several times and they should go back to santos if he is available.

  40. Bird Says:

    Dem balls

  41. Bird Says:

    And sign Shaq now

    What a blessing. What a pick up.
    Maybe you get discount now with a deal
    His agent should listen cause injuries can happen
    Kid is flat out balling. Only one the seems to sniff the QB

    Vea and Suh shutting down the run too
    I didn’t think Barkley could be shut down but they did

  42. Kenny Says:

    Carlton Davis needs to shoulder some of this blame he can’t keep hugging wr and costing us good field position and Idc what y’all say Vh3 is average and can run with elite speed wr, he is confident but that don’t shutdown anything!

  43. Darin Says:

    Gota give Nassib some serious props too. He basically had 2 of those sacks. Without Nassib bull rushing his guy into the qb all day shaq wouldnt have had as many. He has been balling tho. Love the effort of those 2. Sign em both. How bout we RISK IT next game and go for the BISCUIT?? Didnt think this staff would play it that dang safe against a bad defense. Go for the jugular from now on or stop talking about your balls being big. They shriveled up in the second half. Bad bad job yesterday of coaching. Cmon coach youre better than that.

  44. MadMax Says:

    Better lock up Shaq Mr Licht, he’s the real deal, played with one of the best and is showing what he learned and how he can rush too!

    We got our pass rush Joe!!!! Be proud!

    DB55, stfu already with your stupid antics….and get an original name instead of wearing DB55 as your moniker, you’re not him and you’re tainting his name posing as him, so just stop!!!

  45. Bobby Says:

    DB55 apparently you haven’t watched much of Daniel Jones. I said on earlier posts that he scared me because he was so deadly accurate and didn’t play like a rookie. He reminds me of Aaron Rogers only maybe faster. I think he’s going to be a great one if he stays healthy. He was definitely NOT an overreach in the draft. I’ll bet most coaches besides Kansas City would love to have him.

  46. unbelievable Says:

    Where’s nosbos?

    Back into hiding I guess.

  47. unbelievable Says:

    that gets moderated too? JFC

  48. Defense Rules Says:

    Shaq is unbelievable. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to see him get 20 sacks in this defense, providing he stays healthy of course. That’s only averaging 1 sack per game for the rest of the season.

    As to whether or not we can afford him next year, let’s cross that bridge when we come to it. At this point in time, we have no idea what we’ll do with Jameis or JPP, 2 big money guys. And if we FINALLY draft a couple of quality OLinemen, we could save around substantial $$$ (even after we pay the rookies) by cutting a couple of our current high $$$ guys who’ve seen better days.

  49. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Gerald who? In 3 games Barrett has already matched GMC’s best season.

  50. bucsfan951 Says:

    i dont know about yall but reading db55’s posts and knowing hes crumbling like the bucs yesterday is very entertaining!

  51. SteelStudBuc Says:

    Yeah DB55 looks like a complete baby right now. Get a life man. I just finished working construction all day like a man… and I log on here to see you still whining day after day like a girl. Whhhaaaaa!!! Grow up.
