“I’m Coming For Their Necks”

October 31st, 2020

Stewing for Giants.

It is interesting to Joe that roughly a year after returning from a neck injury that damn near ended his career, Bucs outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul is gunning for the necks of Giants offensive players.

JPP, who was drafted, developed and won a Super Bowl ring with the Giants (guess who he beat?), was in a one-car accident 18 months ago when he was cruising down rain-slicked I-95 in South Florida and lost control of his rig and broke his neck.

To JPP’s credit, he worked his tail off and returned to the Bucs. In 10 games last year, JPP had 8.5 sacks and he never took a snap in training camp or preseason as he was rehabbing his broken neck.

Apparently, JPP is still miffed deep down inside about the Giants giving up on him and trading him to the Bucs before the 2018 season. In speaking to the New York/New Jersey media Friday, JPP all but said he plans on leaving Giants Stadium Monday night a barren scorched earth.

Look out Danny Dimes, types Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post.

“I’m coming for their necks, and they know that,’’ Pierre-Paul said. “Jason Pierre-Paul ain’t going nowhere. I’m going to Monday Night Football and going to destroy the Giants.’’

JPP noted it is a good thing his old friend and teammate Eli Manning has retired.

“I’m happy to play Daniel Jones,’’ Pierre-Paul said of the Giants’ second-year quarterback. “Eli’s not there no more, so I won’t have to pick him up and say, ‘Eli, man, you good?’ ’’

Of course, one reason JPP may be seething is how the Bucs gave away a shameful game to the Giants last year at the Den of Depression, though JPP wasn’t playing. Jameis was lighting up the Giants in the first half and that game was over.

But you can hang that loss squarely on Bucs coach Bucco Bruce Arians. He took the ball out of Jameis’ hands in the second half and fed Peyton Barber a steady diet of carries up the middle somehow thinking the guy was Mike Alstott.

It blew up in Arians’ face.

Then, to rub salt in the wound, Jameis hit Mike Evans on a 44-yard bomb to give the Bucs a first-and-goal at the Giants-9. Jameis spiked the ball on first down to kill the clock with 13 seconds left.

Instead of trying one or two passes in the end zone, Arians had the Bucs take a delay and then ordered Jameis to take another two-yard loss to set up shaky Matt Gay on an otherwise easy kick, though Arians later admitted Gay was struggling on short kicks (which is why he took the delay and told Jameis to take a loss).

Naturally, Gay missed the game-winner and had the Bucs kicked prior to losing yards on the delay, it would have been good.

So maybe one reason JPP wants to go for people’s throats is that he may understand a lot of his teammates are still peeved about last year’s loss to the Giants.

They should be. That was worse than the loss to the Bears this year.

    JPP will have 4 sacks and a FF vs Giants…you heard it here first.
    Man on a mission
    Like Shaq vs Broncos
    DEF about to FEAST
    Go Bucs!!!

  2. MtBucsfan Says:

    I think the loss at chicago was needed. The team realized they need to pull their heads out of their ass. It was one of those coming together moments.

  3. #1bucfan Says:

    Yes it was joe. I’m still a little pissed about it. I know this team is 5-2 but man over the lost decade the Bucs have always found new ways to lose games and that’s why I don’t consider this a cupcake game. Still have some ptsd from the lost decade. If the Bucs can go out and smash them like the raiders and packers it might ease my ptsd but I don’t think it will be cured till the season is over we make the playoffs and really rid ourselves of the den of Depression. Come one Tampa keep it up. Let’s change this culture rid our rightfully soo nickname and bring the glory days back to Tampa.

  4. Drunkinybor Says:

    Yeah that was a horrible loss. It was like kirk “you like that!” Cousins all over again. That Giants loss still hurts my stomache.

  5. Clean House Says:

    Jameis Winston- 5109 yds, Reigning NFL Passing Leader and “The Scapegoat”

  6. unbelievable Says:

    Yup, that one hurt.

    Chicago was pretty bad too though- mostly because it was all self inflicted (plus 2 awful penalties from the refs that kept drives alive). We just self destructed, just like the Giants game.

    I think we can keep up the consistency and intensity from the last 2 weeks this time. Go Bucs!

  7. TampaTown Says:

    He’s going to be like Charles Jefferson in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, the football player who’s car got destroyed by Spicoli anc his little brother, but he thought was destroyed by the school they were playing for homecoming.

  8. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    Yes cleanhouse because this offense isn’t better this year or anything at all.

    Cleanhouse likes to make it look like Brady isn’t doing anything meanwhile the bucs are tied with the Seahawks for the most TDs scored.

  9. Cainishere Says:

    I have not posted since before the Bears game and I am sorry I have not had the chance to express my opinions on what is happening to our team.
    When I said “this team needs to focus on just winning the games and not being selfish, they took it to heart. This team definitely is not selfish. Evans needs to break that 1000 yard season this year because he deserves it. Hopefully his legs will hold up as now he has to stretch that field and catch the long passes again. He doesn’t look so hobbled anymore and seems to be doing better with his hamstrings. Brady looks like he has worked out as I suggested and has put muscle back on them arms. He needs to keep it up working those arms and back.
    Gronk is starting to look like the Gronk of old and Chris looks great as usual. hey Chris loved what you said in your interview about not being selfish. Getting back to Evans a sec Hey man we all love you man. Your spirit and drive excite us. I want to see you break that record buddy. We definitely have not forgotten you. Little Kacey wanted you to break that record, keep that in mind.
    Brady needs to trust more in the offense that Tampa Bay already had. Don’t put them on the back burner because these guys have worked just as hard as you have at being successful. They deserve to be in the spot light. Showcase all of them Brady not just your buddies. The defense OMG Todd you have done a fantastic job of getting these guys to perform at an elite level. Todd if someone offers you a head coaching job turn it down man because you have a chance to do something super for the next few years. The more you do it the more money you will make and the fame will follow you. Suh? Stop with the cheap shots man. I seen what you did lol. I laugh because it’s rare to see a player knee a QB in the happy sack but you did, don’t deny it, we all saw it. Arians your mix with Brady and BL is working. It’s as if all three of you are creating this devastating offensive scheme that can light fires on good teams.
    Many have stated they have never seen an unselfish group of pro football players before. That is because this team is a HALL OF FAME TEAM PERIOD.
    The yard stick of all defenses and possibly offenses for years to come as I stated way before the season began. Penalties OMG they have virtually disappeared. I am not sure who changed all of that but even D. Smith is playing much better
    (not taking plays off). Wirfs is getting better and Winfield looks amazing. The secondary looks amazing, they are getting picks almost every game. Proud of the team. Now, I want to say to Antonio Brown. Please man, You are a rare talent. You do things that other receivers simply cannot do. Please do not think that you will come into Tampa with a deva attitude and get what you want. This team is finely tuned and you are an addition to the team that they really need.
    We are happy to welcome you to Tampa Bay and hope that you will enjoy yourself in the warm sun and enjoy finally being in a good place to play some good football.
    There are so many quality players on this team that you will blend in rather than stand out. I do not think you have ever been in a situation like this team before.
    Cement your legacy as one of the greatest by staying clean and focused and doing the right things. There are so many targets that have great hands and speed it will simply amaze you I am sure. They all need touches as you will want them too. Looking forward to seeing this team beat them Saints Them Chiefs and Them Rams.
    SUPER BOWL DRESS REHEARSAL NUMBER 8 let’s get them Giants fellas.
    GO BUCS!!!!!

    I’m with Drunkinybor. What a loss to the G-men. A blast in the cojones for Bucs fans! Basically an exclamation point on the losing mentality at One Buc that had a chokehold on the franchise for the past decade. The loss did reap 2 positive benefits though; it coupled with that last minute loss to the ATL in week 17 and perhaps another L or 2 can be attributed to the ineptitude of Matt Gay (Seattle) and the mental mistakes at absolutely the wrong time from Jameis. A couple more Ws and possibly a wildcard slot and I am not sure if Brady is here, heck they might have gave Winston an extension (or at least JW could have had a better shot at a starting gig elsewhere). So thanks for getting the yips vs the ATL, Seattle and the ATL Matt! Anyhow 2019 is water under the bridge, time to look forward and just win baby!

  11. '79Defense Says:

    Joe, reading that sequence of events leading up to the loss to the Giants last year is a painful flashback (and not too distant) of the beyond bizarre ways these team has lost games over the past 44 years. They really had to dig deep in the playbook to come up with a delay of game penalty to back up their kicker for a field goal attempt.

    One of my favorites, even though it’s rather tame by Bucs standards, is when we tied the score with a TD on the last play of the game at home against Carolina in ’03. Grammatica then misses the game ending extra point attempt (closer than today’s) and Carolina goes on to win.

    If Gruden had just pulled out the delay of game penaly on that one, maybe Martin would have felt more comfortable and things would have gone our way.

  12. Buczilla Says:

    The giants are the worst team in a truly pathetic division, but I hope that we crush them and further demoralize their buffoonish fanbase nonetheless. They can’t hold a candle to the riffraff from philadelphia (not worth capitalizing), but their in the same neighborhood. 😛

  13. Hodad Says:

    As I remember Joe, he took the ball out of Jameis’s hand after a costly pick. Winston was garbage in the 2nd half of that game.

  14. Jason Says:

    “I’m Coming For Their Necks”

    For a second there I thought it was another OJ Simpson article.

  15. Waco Says:

    After so many years of losing, I loved seeing them run it up at the end of last weeks game. I hope to see them come out and dominate the Giants. I’d love to see a 35-7 score. A great year to be a Bucs fan! GO BUCS!

  16. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Get out the syrup and butter because the Brady Bunch is about to pancake the G-men. Brady has lost twice in the Super Bowl to the NY Football Giants. So there will be no let down. Bradys maniacal drive for excellence has not changed. Actually it will be Arians calling off the dogs,because the G-men will be mangled mess already. Let’s see if D Jones even plays for the whole 4th Quarter, Rodgers did not. Bet he does not make it to the end. 21- 24 points by the half for the Bucs. They should easily hit 31-35 again in this game. 35-14 Bucs and that is taking it easy. Could be a Gabbert sighting for half of the 4th Quarter. GO BUCS!!!!

  17. geno711 Says:

    Asked if they made a mistake by trading him…

    You already know they made a mistake,” Pierre-Paul said Friday on a Zoom call with reporters. “When I left there, I got 12 1/2 (sacks) that year. When I came back from a broken neck, I got 8 1/2 that year. And I’m having an amazing season this year. It’s not that I’m trying to show them they made a mistake. It’s just a fact that I know I wasn’t washed up or finished up. So this (Monday), I have to show them. It’s my old team.”

    Here is the way I see it – if that is pissed off or just something that is driving him – this dude is still an amazing athlete that plays football at a very high level.

    In fact he also says… “There’s no bad blood,”

    You know in 2017, the last year on the Giants he lead all defensive lineman in snaps with 1071 and it was good play. He was still good.

    all the return text said was:

    “protect ya neck”

  19. adam from ny Says:

    david carr of nfl network predicted a 45-0 win for the bucs at the meadowlands

  20. Señor Harry in Costa Rica Says:

    Come on Clean House, you know better than that. Yeah, Brady hasn’t really had an impact on the Bucs. Ridiculous.

    Forget about the added talent we have this year. Brady’s mystic is backed up by his obvious talent (15 TDs to 1 INT of late) and that makes his teammates step up just a little more. He has them believing (along with us fans) that we are going to the SB.

    Who is going to bust his arse for a QB who gives the ball over 40 times to the other team?!

    Why do you think NDog is hiding?

  21. adam from ny Says:

    i’m guessing 41-17…or 34-17…

    give or take a td…giants just don’t have enough to hang…

    unless the bucs are looking to much towards the saints…

    and with tom gravy on the team, i think they look past no one

    #TomGravyIsReallyBringingThatGravy #TellMeNo #VoteTomGravy

    Tom Gravy has that o-line hyper focused out there now…

    cynthia frelund said :

    mike evans will have more like 7 yards receiving than 85 yards receiving…


  24. Bucsfanman Says:

    “Scapegoat”?! No sir. Real fans understand the concept of complementary football. The entire story exonerates the ex-QB from that debacle last year. Everyone watching KNOWS it was not the fault of the QB losing that game.

    JPP is the one guy that I actually hang on every word. I believe him!

  25. Justme Says:

    The Giants game last year was worse, I was sitting in that end zone surrounded by Giants fans when that all went down. Between a rookie (below average QB in his first game) lighting up the defense and the kick it was sickening. The Bears game may have been a good thing, this year’s team seems determined to use it as motivation and last year they didn’t seem to be surprised.

  26. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Anybody who puts stats (Clean House) before wins just doesn’t get it. Yes, check yo sheet, the STANDINGS.

  27. snookman Says:

    Gians win. Tampa will find a way to lose to the Giants just like they did against the Bears. This franchise is not ready to deal with all hype surrounding them. Im sorry but a major let down will ensue……………Two nice wins against GB and LV but this team is not mentally strong other than the QB. 10-6 with one Playoff win.

  28. Mike C Says:

    So we kill the pack and raiders but take the L against the g girls? Let’s put cash on it bro.

  29. Steven007 Says:

    Clean house is Ndog lite. Joe in Michigan put it succinctly.

  30. Sorryjackchuckiesback Says:

    He didn’t try to throw a few more times because he knows Winston would probably throw a pick…. Plus if he would have hit Mike in stride that was touchdown game over…. But all in all that should have been the ONE game Winston came back and won in!! The defense let them down not Arians idiot!! He did what your supposed to do with that big of a lead and not take chances with a bad QB….. But alas, he sits while Brady shows him how it’s done!! Winston if you read this, you got a lot of talent and can be an NFL QB … A good one!! Watch Brady, watch how he only takes calculated chances!! He NEVER just throws it up for grabs!! That is the job of a NFL QB… Not to rack up stats so that everyone can check their sheets!!!

    @ Adam from NY 🤣🤣🤣
    Wu Tang “Protect ya Neck”

  32. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Jameis Winston – 30 interceptions, 7 pick sixes and riding the pine in NO.

  33. Sorryjackchuckiesback Says:

    There no way the Giants score 17 dude!!! They have been averaging that against sub par defenses!!! …. They will be lucky to get 10 …. I’m predicting 27-9 … The Giants get into redzone 3 times (which they’re the worst team in the league in the red zone) and only score on field goals… I think the bucs keep them out of the end zone, pick him off twice and sack him 4 times causing one fumble!! That kind of game right there would be almost exactly par for the course for the Giants

  34. 74 Bucs fan Says:

    Snookman – we are all trying to shake the ptsd from years of that loser mentality. We all feel it, we all feel it (he has blue hair) – but the vast majority of us are working past our ptsd and believe in this new regime. Hope you get there too. Assume you are a fisherman with that handle. Chasing that 40″+ snook has been a passion of mine for over 30 years. All the best and Go Bucs!

  35. Youngbucs Says:

    Come on joes after jameis tossedba boneheaded int they took the ball out his hands go watch. After tht int we ran 7-8 times the coaches saw that movie before who wouldn’t be spooked.

  36. Youngbucs Says:

    Jpp the man he don’t bite his tongue. He said the Bucs made the right choice at QB so did shaq and suh!!!!

  37. Youngbucs Says:

    Actually the Bucs are the #1 scoring offense in the nfl!!!!!!!

  38. Youngbucs Says:

    Having a real QB allows JPP to talk smack I love it.

  39. adam from ny Says:

    if word on the street is jpp is coming for your neck…

    you better leave town in a hurry

  40. adam from ny Says:

    i think the giants will score a touchdown…

    definitely dimes to slayton…they have very good chemistry…

    they have 3 good receivers now as one is back from injury…

    and dimes can sneaky scramble…

    maybe 2 tds and a field goal or 1 td and 3 field goals…

    bucs should take this game about 34-17

  41. Oneilbuc Says:

    Are we at home Monday ???

  42. sgrd0q Says:

    Do not agree with JPPs “coming for their necks” comment particularly given he fractured his neck in a crash. I think it is in poor taste and gives the Guan’s bulletin board material. Also, being more humble when you are the overwhelming favorite to win is probably the higher road to take.

  43. lowercaseg Says:

    Love JPP he is the realest.
