Shaq Roasts Vikings Kicker

December 14th, 2020

Joe’s not worried about Vikings kicker Dan Bailey challenging Shaq Barrett to a fight.

And Joe wouldn’t be shocked if that actually happened after last night’s shade on national television.

Before Bailey melted down yesterday against the Bucs, missing four kicks that would have totaled 10 points, he was a veteran former Pro Bowler having a down season.

Now Bailey’s on the verge of getting fired, and his humiliation and costly misses weren’t lost on Shaq.

NBC Sports super insider Mike Florio had a private chat with Shaq after the Bucs’ 26-14 victory and shared some of their discussion on Football Night In America.

Florio closed the segment with a quote from the reigning NFL sacks king: “Barrett told me with a laugh, ‘Tell the kicker we appreciate him.'”


Imagine if Saquon Barkley had said that about Matt Gay last year. Fun stuff.

Hopefully, Shaq will be saying something similar about the Falcons offensive line on Sunday.

    Cam Jordon had the ultimate burn when we said he couldn’t tell the difference in RayJay with the empty stadium compared to normal Buc home games, ouch. lol

  2. zzbuc Says:

    Not something to be proud about Shaq, You don´t kick somebody when he is falling and talk about it with the press…..If you have an argument, keep it private, you do not comment about it with the hungry tabloid so called National Journalists

    Speaks worst about you Shaq than Bailey….Pretty surprised to be honest…Never imagine about him……

  3. Danny C Says:

    zzbuc…relax dude, kids having fun…geez

    The Bucs have been the brunt of jokes for years. It’s about time we can dish out a few ourselves.

  4. zzbuc Says:

    Danny C…. I am 100% relaxed my men…..Is just I dont like it that way that´s all….I don´t like when players spread private info with the press…..And is not very nice when you do it to a dead man walking…….But belive me I am 100% relaxed……

    zzbuc – “..Is just I dont like it that way that´s all….I don´t like when players spread private info with the press…”

    What was private about it? The whole country saw the debacle and then it was amplified on all the sports talk shows. Nearly all of Joe’s posts yesterday mentioned it. The dude imploded, pure and simple. Doesn’t mean he’s a bad guy. No one is going to get down on him more than he will on himself.

    The Bucs should send Bailey a check for this game. He left 10 points out there. Now lets not overlook the fact that Dalvin Cook ran all over this top rush defense. He could’ve had more yards if it wasn’t for him tripping and losing his footing on some runs. Glad the Bucs won but for once I’m glad the Bucs were on the other end when it comes to a kicker having a bad day.

    dan bailey was reminding me yesterday of brinza, Folk, Matt gay, and last but not least the second round draft pick from FSU kicker Roberto Aguayo. thank god the bucs finally have a kicker

  8. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Go for it Shaq…….if you can’t kick a kicker….who can you kick…

  9. ModHairKen Says:

    The Bucs had to endure “you like that” from Cousins. Now the shoe is on the other foot.

    Yes, Shaq kicked Bailey while he was down.

    Seriously, that was the worst effort kicking ever. Ever.

  10. orlbucfan Says:

    Dan Bailey. a Pro Bowl kicker? Roberto Aguayo, he ain’t. Glad Bucs were on the receiving side of opponent missing kicks for a change! 🙂

  11. Elita Vita Says:

    Comparing what Shaq said with what the press and fans of Minnesota will say today will make the former’s statement a soft slap on the wrist!

  12. Ftmyersbuc Says:

    Big buc, those “trips” you saw, and there were several were tackles by winfield mostly. Rewatch and you’ll see he gets enough of his foot to bring him down. Thank god cause he was flying thanks to cj ham, a fullback, something ba refuses to ise even on 3rd and 1, he blew david and white out of the plays. That’s why winfield had 12 tackles. Probably 6 td saving shoestring tackles as well

  13. Perimeter Blocker Says:

    @Dewey Selmon Agreed. I attended yesterday and the amount of Vikings Fans is embarrassing. I do my best to make them uncomfortable. The simple fact is when your team has been irrelevant for over a decade this is the result. Let’s hope this is the beginning of a long period of relevance so we can actually gain a homefield advantage….

  14. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Who can forget the “you like that” taunt from Cousins ?
    As far as all those Viking Fans goes, most were from right here in Florida.
    People move here, and continue to root for their home team, despite the fact they live here now.

  15. Pewter Power Says:

    That was just real talk no need to exaggerate what it meant. Dan Bailey likely won that game for us. For some reason the head coach thinks this was a dominant win. Damn this is going to be a very short postseason. Saints fans should thank us for knocking Vikings out of the playoffs 😂😂😂

  16. Buc4evr Says:

    Geez it’s football. Players talk smack to each other all the time. I’m sure on the field a lot worse was said to Bailey by the Bucs to make him miss kicks. Besides someone needs to ask Cousins if “ he liked that”..

  17. Bojim Says:

    The Bucs have been the butt of jokes for eons. We get a pass.

  18. TampaTown Says:

    Love the Goodfellas pic and reference

  19. Dan Williamson Says:

    Buncha dang displaced yankees crying because a buc busts some balls. Oh well. “You like that?” Every 5th generation Tampa fan, and yes its Tampa not Tampa bay, No one lives in water, is used to having ours busted since 1976 on and dishing out a little is acceptable. Deal with it. You come from up north leave up north up there. Your a Tampa fan now. If not….just go back.

  20. unbelievable Says:

    They should be thanking him.

    We most likely lose if hadn’t missed all those kicks. That was 10 points right there, not too mention how it would have affected playcalling by both teams down the stretch…

    Arians should give Bailey the game ball TBH.

  21. TampaTown Says:

    Dan Williamson:
    Well said. Tampa Bay is a body of water. It doesn’t have a zip code. Welcome to Florida. Now go home. Stay where you’re at and vote the opposite way you’ve always voted, don’t ruin it for the rest of us.

  22. WyldKat Says:

    It was stupid for Zim to send Bailey out there for that 54 yarder.

    Glad he did.

  23. cmurda Says:

    I’m not feeling bad for a kicker that got paid lots of money to kick balls. There are many ladies out there that like to kick balls but they don’t get paid a lot of money to do it. Put your big boy pants on and take it like a man. Cam Jordan has been laughing at Donovan Smith and the inability of the Bucs to beat the Aints. Go ahead and read him the riot act too.
