“A Full House For Shaq To Rush The Passer And Not A Lot Of Pick-6s Going The Other Way”

April 8th, 2020

Warren Sapp was talking again.

The darts came out for Donovan Smith and Jameis Winston, and he talked Tom Brady.

Sapp joined Speak For Yourself on FOX this week and Joe has few highlights:

*”I’ll take a superhero in his last couple of years,” Sapp said of the Bucs adding Tom Brady. “But what we have to do right now in Tampa and get him a left tackle.”

*Sapp says any talk of Brady playing to age 48 is crazy.

*No. 99 said he’s fired up for how Brady will energize the Den of Depression. “A full house for Shaq [Barrett] to rush the passer and not a lot of pick-6s going the other way.”

* On why Jameis Winston failed in Tampa, Sapp said, “From what I’m hearing, it was just the one thing that all football players must do, and that’s go from the blackboard to the practice field, and then from the practice field and onto the game field on Sunday. I heard reports of, ‘Ok, Jameis, we’re going to go play-action pass; you look shallow then you go up top.’ They’d say, ‘he’d look shallow and go shallow and then it would be a pick, and if he went up top the guy was wide open’. When you go through that and you add up the amount of turnovers and the different stuff, I understand why the Bucs go with Tom Brady over Jameis Winston. But this young man [Jameis] will find another job in the National Football League and thrive in it.” Sapp went on to say he likes how Jameis thrives under pressure but he said he couldn’t stomach watching how ugly Jameis played last season.

*Asked to name the secret behind his passion for the game, Sapp said, “A dirt road with no cable television and no air conditioning,” said Sapp, who added that being the youngest in his family and his mom working three jobs helped him to love football “like the queen she is.”

    Obviously as a person Sapp is a piece of spit, however his football knowledge is unquestionable. I am way more interested in what former players have to say vs run of the mill talking heads or the trolls frequenting this web site.

  7. Formerly Tampa 2 Says:

    I’m with Go Bucs 72…..As a person Sapp is a piece of spit. I will never forget the was he treated some worshiping little leaguers when they ask him for an autograph one year. In fact, Sapp is a piece of spit period!

  8. Buc1987 Says:

    My favorite Buc of all time.

  9. Mike Johnson Says:

    A dirt road, no cable TV and no AC? I like that one Sapp. Most spoiled american kids might die today without these things.

  10. Buccfan37 Says:

    Who as a past Buc can match Sapp and his overall contribution with and for the Bucs. None that come to mind that I can think of. The outspoken big mouth is a plus and brings back fond memories past and present. Hail Sapp!

  11. Youngbucs Says:

    Exactly all that talk and hard work gibberish means nothing if it does not happen on the field

  12. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Nickerson was the OG of that defense but Sapp was the QB Killa.

  13. BringBucsBack Says:

    I grew up in (W.) Central FL. with no A/C or cable TV. Our street was paved, however. I couldn’t make it in the pros but, I’m a good human being.

    “Mamas don’t let your your babys grow up on a dirt road.”

    warren is not a nice human

    I think the point here is very clear. We constantly heard JW being a brilliant football mind, and he may be just that. But when the live bullets started flying around he just couldn’t translate that to the field in any sort of consistent manner.

    Unfortunately that left us with one big tease at QB for the last 5 years. We made the right call to draft him and the time but it simply didn’t work out. That’s football / life.

    I am so ready to move on with TB12. We have so much potential and hopefully with the right QB in place we can finally live up to the hype. I for one believe we can.

    “he likes how Jameis thrives under pressure:

    He likes watching pick sixes? Int’s? Fumbles?

    When has JW ever played great under pressure? Can you count on him to deliver when it’s OT and the game is on the line…not really

    Can you count on him to drop a dime on CG to pull out a last second win in the final game of the season if it’s a meaningless game? Absolutely!

    Sapp has just praised JW’s worst trait…he does not perform well under pressure when it counts..
