“We Are Excited To Play Daniel Jones”

September 19th, 2019

“We see you, Daniel Jones.”

He was the top sacker in the NFL for a couple of days, until Myles Garrett played a game Monday night.

But for Bucs pass rusher Shaq Barrett, early on he has been the answer to Bucs’ fans prayers. With Jason Pierre-Paul on the shelf for who knows how long, many, many people both near and far wondered from where in the world the Bucs were going to get a pass rush?

Again, it is very early, but it seems that pass rush is coming from Barrett, who had three sacks in one quarter last week and is second in the NFL in sacks with four.

This morning, Barrett appeared on the popular “Good Morning Football” on NFL Network. There, Barrett said he and the Bucs plan a warm embrace for Giants quarterback Daniel Jones as the rookie makes his first NFL start.

“We are excited to play Daniel Jones,” Barrett said. “We want to welcome him to the league for sure.”

    They (giants) think this is the perfect week. Yup, perfect week to sweep the leg. Shurmur is a bad coach. Gettleman destroys teams. This isnt the same bucs team, 1 more draft and we will be ready to contend.

    “Other than wearing our tinfoil hats occasionally, we are not conspiracy theorists

    however, with all the top old guard QBs going down, Goodell would love DJ to win to prop the NY city market

    We dont believe that this solely will be the cause of this worrisome game. We believe the whole NY team and coaches will play this game as a playoff game to resurrect this season and be given a new lease on life and turnaround

    every NY player will be going 110%. Must win for the NY giant team and franchise for their beginning of a new face of the giants in the next 10 years

    Bucs will get the best of the the Giants”

    There are only two QBs that I am excited to see us play this year……Patrick Mahones or Tom Brady…….figure it out!!!

  4. Bobby Says:

    Watch for some horrible calls this Sunday. Just like they wanted the Rams in the Super Bowl last year, they want the Giants to succeed.

  5. Rayjay1122 Says:

    We must contain Barkley, cover Engram and confuse Jones to stop the Giants. On offense, we need to have success running the ball, not have turnovers, have Winston manage the game and use high percentage passes. If we can dominate Time of possession, win the turnover battle and limit costly penalties, I like our chances.

    On a different note. Why do we throw so many deep sideline patterns? I always hate those because you make a low percentage at even lower by making the sideline another defender. Why not more deep slants and posts or go routes not right on the sidelines? So frustrating.

    Hey Kobe F: on the other side of things conspiracy wise Vegas would love people to pile on the Giants depress the line a bit and then see Tampa cover the spread and the money line, so yeah the hype will be on the G-men but who has Goodell’s ear and perhaps the refs (you know the guys who give the questionable calls to teams like Dallas over Detroit, the Bellicheats over anyone etc…)? The wiseguys in Vegas or media? Interesting question! You are right though, this game smell trap all the way through and the Giants will be playing to avoid being slotted with the Jets and Fins, last year the Bucs would lose by 14 under Dirk and Smith, this year I hope you are correct and the Bucs win comfortably and blast a lot of 7 point teasers people may drop on NY but being a Buc fan with our history of BS calls I am prepared for it to be a ****ing nailbiter if the Pirate Ship prevails!

    Destroy Daniel Jones

  8. John Sinclear Says:

    We shouldn’t be worried about Jones. Like it is said about RG4, he has never taken a snap in an NFL regular season game!

  9. Sleepy903 Says:

    @ StonedBuc – I agree with your last statement. I was looking this morning. If Tampa makes the playoffs or at least in the race to make the playoffs this year. Based on the young talent that has developed and depth, Tampa could finally address the trenches.

    Draft a pass rusher and a right tackle in the early rounds we may be able to contend. Not sure how Winston turns out and he may get tagged but if solidify the O-line and get a good pass rusher everything else is set as far as starters.

    Ultimately, I’d like to see us get a bona fide LT and move DS76 to RT where I think he’s much better suited.

  11. 74 Bucs fan Says:

    Praying Bowles defense confuses Jones because his preseason throws were very accurate and smooth (from the video the Giants posted). I actually wish that Eli was starting as he looks bad and is a statue – and the team knows it. Now we may get a revived Giants team due to Jones. We are certainly going to get a desperate team (which makes them dangerous).

    I’m on optimist but this kid looks good – although granted it was preseason against vanilla defenses.

    Stop the run, disguise coverages, and run the damn ball down their throats!

    You nailed it Bobby.

    Guys………….don’t sleep on this rookie

    This is not going to be an easy game for two reasons:

    1# Barkley

    2# Jones unknowns

    Have you guys even watched Daniel Jones highlights…..this guy gets the ball out quick and he is very very very accurate.

    This won’t be like last week where Cam was missing of overthrowing his receivers…….Jones is deadly ACCURATE.

    I look for the Giants to have a game plan to Dink and Dunk their way down the field similar to Tom Brady style.

    What’s scary about this rookie Jones, is that not only does he have all those skills mentioned above……but he’s mobile.

    this has all the makings of a TRAP GAME.

    I surely hope the bucs don’t take the Giants for a joke come this Sunday.

    The Bucs simply cannot lose to this team to a rookie QB…..not in his first real NFL start in regular season.

    If the BUCS lose……that is going to be simply disastrous….

    Why are your moderators deleting my posts?????

    There’s no cursing in it?????

    It’s just speaking the whole honest truth……..

    Has this website turned in the New York Times now????????????????????????

    So much for Freedom of Speech?

  16. Slugglife Says:

    Rookies love playing the Bucs. See- Trubisky.

    Lets hope Todd has a plan.

  17. Slugglife Says:


    Youre only allowed to call people “hillbilly racists” around here.

    Anything else and youre in violation.

  18. BucDan Says:

    We know the middle of the field will be clogged due to Vea and Suh. That means CONTAIN, CONTAIN, CONTAIN! Shaq and Nassib have showed what it’s like for a RB to try to get to the edge, which means solid cleanup tackling from the ILBs (Minter and LVD) and more of the same from Whitehead.

    I am sure that Bowles is preaching the old defensive adage “Counter, Cutback, Reverse”. Saquon is great at keeping his forward momentum while changing direction. ILBs and DBs need to be ready to squeeze the plays to each other and execute with solid wrap- and gang-tackling.

    Keeping the Giants offense to 2nd- and 3rd-and-long downs means that the ball is in Daniel Jones’ hands to make a play and I feel confident that out defense will win out more than not in those situations.

    OMG! I was soooooo pissed off that Sunday when the Bucs essentially made Mitch Trubisky look like the second coming of Dan Marino.

    I was just sitting there like “WTF is our defense doing??? Why isn’t mike smith adjusting???”

    ……………..that was just a horrible game for all bucs fans

  20. Buccernutter Says:


    I can assure you they are not taking this game as a joke. We are not good enough to do that for anyone. They are more likely excited to show of their skillset against a team that will allow them to do so.

    I sure hope Bruce doesn’t allow that cockiness that Dirk allowed after a win. Dirk could not handle the job.

  21. Ghost of Darrell Henderson Says:

    “1 more draft and we will be ready to contend.”

    Can you name anyone they drafted this year that has helped?

    If you mention the kicker, keep in mind that they didn’t even have to draft him.

    One more draft of bench warmers, practice squad players and 2nd rounders who will get no playing time and are just wasting roster spots (SMLB, Spence, etc) will bury this team.

    Gumpster Fire!!

  22. 813bucboi Says:


    you looking at it wrong….

    if the rookie aint contributing, that means vets in front of them have developed under this staff and are producing….the rookie are rightfully depth at this point…..

    if we have lots of rookies starting and playing, that means the vets on the team were trash…..thats not the case….

    the talent has been here….the coaches and the scheme were missing….

    btw, nelson has produced a FF…..

    GO BUCS!!!!!!

  23. SOEbuc Says:

    This is going to be a very ticky-tack team over the next few years. We’ll have to have to pay all the really good young players (that Licht picked if all the Licht haters didn’t know), a lot of cash. Chris Godwin and OJ are in third year and Vea is in his second. We owe LVD $10.75 million in 2020 and then he’s UFA in 2021. That’s a big predicament because he will be a tackling machine till he’s 40.

    Trades/Cuts: Brate, Jensen, Suh, JPP.

    Depending on Jameis…

    Draft: 1. Vea 2.0/QB) 2. RT) 3.OLB
