“Man, He’s So Fast And Great”

September 23rd, 2020

Pro Bowl sacks king linebacker Shaq Barrett, who the Bucs made a very, very wealthy man, is sackless through two games, but one former Buccaneers is incredibly impressed by what Shaq produced Sunday.

Ex-Bucs tight end Anthony Becht was breaking down the Bucs on WDAE radio

“Shaq Barrett didn’t have obviously a lot going on in the sack department, but man, he’s so fast and great,” Becht said with emphasis. “You know he ran down a few plays on the outside, quick screens, a couple run plays as well.”

Overall, Becht is impressed by the Bucs’ speed on defense.

As for Shaq, Joe knows the sacks will come, but they also have to come. The Bucs defense won’t be where fans expect it to be if Shaq is an eight-sack guy this year. Joe remains in disbelief the Teddy Bridgewater successfully blocked Shaq on Sunday, but Shaq is doing a lot of good things. Becht is correct.

Last year, it was the Saints and Carolina that held Shaq sackless for two games. So the trend has repeated itself. Joe expects Shaq to get on the sacks board Sunday in Denver.

    You have to know hes chomping at the bit to get some sacks in front of Elway who let him walk. Shaq wants Von Miller and the gang to see what they are missing. Bradly Chubb thank you for keeping him out of the starting line up in Denver!!!

  2. Barbosa Says:

    He must be getting ready to feel a massive dose of adrenaline playing against his former team. 2 sacks minimum for Shaq!

  3. Coburn Says:

    Almost every other snap I stop a second to say was he offside? No just very good time and quick get off. Def applies pressure nice and early every snap

  4. Mitch Says:

    I think the Broncos gave up seven sacks last week? Let Shaq and the rest of the Defense eat!!

    Yea he got a clear shot at Teddy, and you gotta show the QB that blocking is a terrrrrrible idea. No excuse for not laying him out there.

  6. Mike Says:

    Would like to see the Bucs move him around a bit more.

    defense will have another strong performance….

    gotta limit those big plays especially in the 4th quarter…

    GO BUCS!!!!

    I am not worried about Shaqs no sacks this year…He made a name, he gets the attention of everyone, and on the meantime, JPP, Gholston Suh gets his stat sheets improvment…..As long as sacks don´t disappear who cares who get´s it…..

    I think this defense is going to have a big day Sunday. Even going to start the Bucs D in fantasy. Shaq will want to play his best against his former team.

    @zzbuc I couldn’t agree more. Just bring the pain! Qb on his a$s on every pass attempt. As a whole the defense looks damn good right now. It’s time to run the table on the league.
    Go Bucs

    He got blocked by Hill on a run against the Saints also. It bugged me. Kamara ran for a first down that play.

  12. Darin Says:

    8 sacks will be fine if he gets alot of qb pressures. Nassib ran the qb into shaq about 10 times last season. As long as someone gets them they’ll be fine

  13. unbelievable Says:

    This is why I thought it was hilarious that you called him “invisible” the other day.

    Sure, he didn’t have the sack #s, but he was bringing pressure non-stop and forcing the plays towards other guys who were getting sacks and TFLs.

  14. Jimmy Says:

    Joe Shaq dominated the Panthers in week 2 last year. 4 sacks

  15. Bucamania Says:

    No way. He doesn’t look like last year’s player AT ALL. Not sure if he’s out of shape or what but he’s getting blocked easily.

  16. Issac haggins Says:

    I thought he looked real good , he really an affect on allot of plays !!

    Not the made up , penetrate / disruption crap away from the play that Eric Curry and Gerald McCoy we’re famous for .
