Busting JPP’s Chops

February 27th, 2021

Offseason advice for JPP.

Man, Bucs players must really love outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul. He had knee surgery this past week and Joe has been told by someone who spoke with him that JPP is already walking in public, not very well but he’s up and about.

We all know how Playoff Lenny, since the Bucs have won the Super Bowl, has been playfully cracking on JPP about his mangled hand from his fireworks injury years ago.

Playoff Lenny on Twitter during the boat parade said it was so hot he thought for sure he saw JPP with two full sets of digits on his hands.

A few days later, Playoff Lenny wondered on Twitter if JPP could wear all of park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking, tequila-shooting, trophy-throwing Bucs Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady’s Super Bowl rings.

Well, it seems Bucs defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has joined the fun. Suh recently did an hour-long sitdown with Shannon Sharpe for his podcast. There, Suh talked about how he and JPP have been tight for years as they got to know each other when they were drafted. Both Suh and JPP were first-round picks in 2010.

Then Suh mentioned the advice he gave JPP as the offseason was about to begin.

“I tell him, ‘In the offseason, go live in a bubble for me,'” Suh said. “I love you to death. Just go lay in a bubble. We’re going to be cool and everything will be fun.'”

Suh clearly has a great deal of respect for JPP as a person and as a player.

“He’s a great talent,” Suh said. “Fun-loving dude. We enjoy our time together. Obviously, he is making plays. We have a lot of respect for each other. … He’s just a special talent.”

If JPP wasn’t a good dude, his teammates wouldn’t be cracking on him like they are in public.

Oh, and Joe had heard from the guy who saw and spoke with JPP this past week, that JPP told Joe’s friend he fought through his knee issue ever since the first week of the season.

For JPP to come back from blowing up his hand and bounce back the way he did from a broken neck last year, that man is a pure warrior.

    I hate to see any of these men leave the team. What a great group.

    Agree Swampbuc. Great group of guys.

    Pure throwback! Tough as they come and doesn’t get enough credit on the “Dream Team”. Bednarik would be proud …. πŸ˜€

    Agree. Great atmosphere. Guys got a lot of respect for each other and the team.
    Trust me. Its getting around the league about tampa. Brady cant shut up about the coaches and the guys and what a special team this was.

    The way players are treated by arians , bowles and leftwich is getting around the league. Family atmosphere means something to these guys. And the switch gets flipped when it needs too, especially game time. Anyone that has played team sports knows exactly what i am talking about. Plus : Great weather. No income tax. Sunny beaches. The boat parade was icing on the cake.

    Would you want to play in cincinatti or jacksonville or houston for 20 mil a year where your team may be 5-11 or 6-10 for the rest of career?


    Would you want to play for a championship with the GOAT on a team making 15 mil per year where your input is listened too and everyone is having fun kicking the crap out of the other guys?

    JPP got to eat 15 VW’s this season. It was epic. Can’t wait until next year.

    Drive safely, JPP…..we need you.

  7. Irishmist Says:

    After retirement, he should consider opening a driving school with Tiger Woods.

    JPP just a crazy good talent.
    Still remember 2019 year. So many people saying that there was no way he could ever play again or play well again.

    I remember him in that last Atlanta game of the year making a sack.
    He is laying on the ground with his belly up. The crazy athlete flips up onto his feet from that flat position.

    Go watch him early in his career where he competed with Kion Wilson doing consecutive back flips. He does 13 in 10 seconds.

    Hope he wants to stay here. I was sorry we signed him for only 2 years last year. We are talking about extending others. We should extend him too. That is a guy we should continue to want on the team. That is a guy I think will perform past 35 years old.


    The beauty of this team is that they are all enjoying themselves. Not one bad word about any player or coach. If you could get up and go to work everyday and love what you do and the people you work with, that’s a homerun in life. Haven’t heard one FA say they didn’t want to come back, even some like Godwin begging for a deal to come back to a team he loves to play for. This is crazy what Brady’s presence has done for this team.
