Jason Pierre-Paul Explains His “Fuel To My Fire” In 2021

February 24th, 2021

Imagine being a millionaire football player who literally blew fingers and chunks off your hand and then broke your neck in a highway car crash. Nobody would wag a finger at your for retiring.

But Jason Pierre-Paul isn’t that guy.

In fact, the always fired up 32-year-old even finds new ways to motivate himself — when he’s already one of the great warrior mentalities in NFL history.

A visitor to WFAN radio recently in New York, JPP was there barking about his lack of respect around the NFL. He was saying he should have been a Pro Bowler in 2019, and should have many more Pro Bowl honors to his name.

He was a Pro Bowler with the Giants in 2011 and 2012, and returned with the Bucs as the only member of the 2020 title team to get the nod.

Still, that wasn’t enough love.

“I should have been All-Pro this year,” JPP said. “Anybody that disagree check the stats. Look at’em, you know what I mean. I should have been All-Pro. That just goes as fuel to my fire for next year. You know what I’m saying?”

Joe loves JPP’s attitude. It sounded there like he said, “Check yo sheet.”

With four forced fumbles, six passes defensed and two picks in the regular season, in addition to his 9 1/2 sacks, Joe thinks JPP could have made a strong case for All-Pro.

Joe hopes JPP can get to the exclusive 100-sack club next year. He’s 11 shy of the mark.

A couple of fun nuggets from JPP: he says he wants to play at least three more years, and Joe will add that JPP is an eye-popping 8-0 in playoff games.

    Extend JPP as part of the overall all-in plan.

  2. Buc4evr Says:

    JPP is a monster. I have been watching him since he played at USF and he has always been a high energy player. The guy is 100% right, he deserves a lot more love from the pundits.

  3. Wesley Says:

    Extend him, the guy is a physical freak.

  4. WorldChamps Says:

    I love JPP amd the energy he brings. One of JL best FA acquisitions!

  5. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    JPP could play in a wheelchair…..restructure him with a 15 year contract…..

  6. Bird Says:

    We got him for 4th round pick

    We hit the jackpot
    A guy his size and fewer fingers with 2 picks
    Thats insane

  7. 813bucboi Says:

    gotta keep JPP…

    i remember when he threw his rookie teammate in the ice tub…lol…a couple coaches and players including the rookie cb didnt like it, but who was going to stand up to JPP!!!…..LOL…

    GO BUCS!!!!

  8. August 1976 Buc Says:

    JPP should get 11 more, there most likely will be many games with the Bucs up in the 2nd half with the games in hand late and JPP and Shaq slamming the door to end games. This team definitely learned how to choke out teams and win with Mr 7 rings. GO BUCS!!!!

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Maybe I was a bit exuberant with that 15 year contract stuff…..let’s make it 10.

  10. Darin Says:

    So humble that JPP. Your paycheck is the only “respect” you need. It’s a game fooooo. Man some of these guys need a reality check.

  11. Adrnagy Says:

    If Matt Judon rejected $16.5M a yr wow jpp is a bargain. I would think shaq wants $20m a yr

  12. Adrnagy Says:

    He just went knee surgery. ? Hopefully he recovers and is ready to go

  13. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    I love it. He’s a beast.

  14. AlabamaBucsFan Says:

    JPP signed a 2 year contract for $12.5 a year. Shaq is asking for $20 per year. Love to keep them both but can’t see how with the salary cap this year.

  15. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    I love JPP, and have since his days at USF.
    I cried out for us to draft him, and I am glad he is here, back home. He’s a beast.

  16. Mitch Says:

    And he had surgery to clean up the cartilage in his knee that was bothering him all season. Man if he comes back healed up he might have 15-16 sacks next year.

  17. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    This is so funny! 1/2 this board was cutting him last year because of his career ending neck injury now not a peep from the peanut gallery. Raise your hand and be a man and say you were wrong.

  18. JimBuc2 Says:

    Bird. Jason Licht sent a third, not a forth round pick to
    the Giants for JPP

  19. lokog Says:

    jpp is a warrior first of all. to me it doesn’t matter if they don’t call him an all-pro hes a superbowl champion wehter they liken it or not

  20. Allbuccedup Says:

    Extend Brady find some coins, extend JPP find some coins, extend Smith find some coins, extend Jensen find some coins then trade OJ and sign everyone else.

  21. Bird Says:


    Yup. Thats right. They switched 4th rounders and gave up 3rd
