“The Training Wheels Off; I Ain’t Comin’ Out No More”

November 5th, 2019

Jason Pierre-Paul mic’d up?

You better believe that excitedly sent Joe to the fridge for pre-listen snack.

The good folks at Buccaneers.com have shared their compilation of JPP wearing a hidden microphone during the gut-punch overtime loss to the Seahawks on Sunday. It’s all in the YouTube video below:

Aside from the fun of it all, JPP talks to Bucs linebacker Kevin Minter at the end of the video and lets him know “the training wheels off; I ain’t comin’ out no more.”

That appears to be a reference to JPP playing 96 percent of the snaps against Seattle, which is the kind of load JPP is used to carrying.

Joe’s intrigued by that thought from JPP because the Bucs are out of the playoff chase and JPP is a free agent after the season. How long will JPP be allowed to play nearly every snap? Will he be re-signed soon? If not, will those snaps go to a player like rookie Anthony Nelson who could use them to develop?

Enjoy the video.

  3. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Warrior….old school …why is not every other player with that attitude …somewhere it went from JPP’s attitude …I am So Cool..look at me..

    It’s a NY thing. Life is much harder up north. Every minute is a fight.

    Everybody soft down here even the transplants. It’s the sunshine.

  6. Bucsfanman Says:

    For all those who thought Robert Ayers was “Beastly”, take a long look at this guy right here. JPP is the definition of a “BEAST”!

  7. MadMax Says:

    Why isnt he signed to a 2 year contract already? Pay him and Barret already!!!

    We need DB’s yes, but we have a pass rush already in place with these guys, veterans too who can teach!

  8. Mike Johnson Says:

    You can see and tell from this video. JPP loves the game of football. Its not even a challenge for him. Its like, Bring it on Baby I’m ready! We need perhaps 10 more like him.

    “I ain’t coming out no more !”

    @Bucsfanman – 100%

    Dude has been back for 2 weeks and is already the biggest leader on the team. (which I know isn’t saying much given this roster…)

  13. NashvilleBuc Says:

    Now there is a MF football player.

  14. Tim Says:

    He is a must re-sign, HUGE leader in the locker room.
    Re-structure/cut some of the overpriced bums if we must.

  15. StonedBuc Says:

    The dude is a monster, we better re sign him.

  16. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Ok, resign him, but put him in bubble wrap in the off season to keep him from himself. If you break your neck because your luxury car is hydroplaning in the middle of the night in a driving thunderstorm and blow half your hand off with fireworks, you need bubble wrap.

  17. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    This team needs more players like him. He is a leader. We need to resign him for that leadership alone.

    “It’s a NY thing. Life is much harder up north. Every minute is a fight (with the NY homeless/bums I assume).”

    Hello genius…he grew up in Deerfield Beach, FLORIDA! Also..to Haitian parents. Life in NY is wayyyyy harder than Haiti. This site attracts some serious DB’s

  19. George Rauh Says:

    The Bucs screwed this up. He was signed thru 2020 for only 12.5. A great price for a pass rusher like JPP, but our GM restructured him. Thumbs down on all whow wanted this guy cut.

  20. SteveK Says:

    ❤️ JPP!

    We better resign this cat. He’s an animal! I respect the hell out of this guy. I need to listen to Joes audio from the Tenn locker room. It’s not that JPP calls ppl out that need it, it’s that he’s so damn focused on whipping ass. It is a beautiful thing to see.

    This is the anti-Icecream mentality is refreshing and needed.

  21. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I certainly am for getting a better look at some younger players but not at JPP’s expense. He has EARNED his playing time.

    This guy has busted butt and now we’re going to say take a seat we need to check out Nelson and the others.

    I realize it’s a business but can’t there be at least a scintilla of loyalty? We OWE it to JPP to let him play as long as he is not hurting the team. Clearly that’s not the issue. And so play him!

    As Robert De Niro said in “The Intern”. “You can never go wrong doing the right thing.”

    Playing JPP is the right thing.

  22. Patrickbucs Says:

    Lol Hank and USF! He’s an idiot.

    I don’t think there is enough bubble wrap in the world to contain this man. The better option would be to cryo freeze him till like week 1 of preseason. Then you let him thaw out slowly till Week 1 and boom, he’s good to go. He clearly has proven he doesn’t really need to practice or learn a new system to be effective after the way he’s came back.

  25. mike10 Says:

    This is the guy you build a defense around.

    Sign him.

  26. down in the dirt doug Says:

    Many were saying get rid of JP— he will never play again.Sorry ass remarks!!!THANKS JPP –YOU ARE THE MAN!!!!!!!!!RESIGN HIM WITH A CLAUSE FOR OFF SEASOM INJURY.
