Jason Pierre-Paul Says Bucs Are Destined To Repeat

February 22nd, 2021

Sometimes Joe wonders what runs through the heads of Giants fans when they watch Jason Pierre-Paul play for the Bucs and hear him talk about his new world.

The Giants unloaded JPP to the Bucs for a third-round draft pick in March of 2018 — and the Bucs cashed in big. In fact, JPP visited CBS Sports Radio recently and noted that he plans to play at least three more years of football.

In classic JPP fashion, he opened the interview saying, “I can’t complain. I’m living on earth.”

Asked about repeating as Super Bowl champions next season, JPP said it’s destiny of the front office gets the job done.

“I’ll tell you this; if we get the same group of guys back on the team, we have no choice but to run it back, and I know that for a fact that we can,” JPP said. “Because just the way that we came together at the right time and clicked at the right time, you could not put that in a movie and cast it again.

“And just knowing the boys that we have and our defense. Our defense (voice now raised) is real. If you think that nine-pointer we did was a fluke [against the Chiefs in the Super Bowl], we’ll do it again.”

JPP went on to say Todd Bowles is a coaching genius and then dropped this gem that should reverberate through One Buc Palace. “Bring Shaq back and we’ll be ok,” he said, referring to free agent Shaq Barrett.

JPP also said the magnitude of him being a big part of a second Super Bowl win hasn’t sunk in.

 “It hit me, but it still ain’t hit me yet. You know what I’m saying?” he said.

As for Mr. Seven Rings at quarterback, JPP said Tom Brady is already back to work. “He’s back on it. Brady’s back on his game. He’s in studying, doing what he needs to do to try and win the next one.”

    I gotta admit, when JPP stood up to the mic at the end of the parade route, he looked like a caged animal. I wouldn’t wanna line up in front of that dude.

  2. Bird Says:

    Mahommes probably still has nightmares from facing our defense in super bowl. He keeps replaying the 10 mini car crashes he was involved in during the game.

    Defense balled out for sure . Best game of year for sure.

    Mahommes never lost by double digits before this game
    Mahommes never scored single digits either in a game

    Hope we can see chiefs in super bowl again next year.
    Gotta keep as much of defense as possible.
    Go bucs!

  3. Mitch Says:

    Bucs need Shaq and LVD back. Shaq is a no brainer. LVD needs to finish his career in Tampa. He has been through everything with this organization, and I think he deserves his last pay day here in Tampa bay. He also has been the #1 ranked coverage linebacker in the league for the past two years. He has 14 more coverage stops than any other LB since 2019.

    Of course Brady is back at work. He is trying to figure out whether CG is worth keeping before FA starts.

  5. Beeej Says:

    Notice he said bring back Sha, but he didn’t say anything about LD

  6. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    I wanted us to draft JPP, and remember him playing here at USF.
    He is right about us repeating, IF we can return most of our guys.

  7. ncbucsfan Says:

    Shaq, Lavonte are the top 2 priorities! Godwin, Succop next! Suh, AB, Lenny afterwards. Extend Jensen and Donovan, along with Mike Evans volunteering his contract, restructure Tom, Brate, resign OJ, and I think we can free up the money for everyone. Get creative Licht! Lets run it back!

  8. Adrnagy Says:

    Mitch … no shaq.we sign everyone Jpp is here. We will pick up von Miller. Draft a pass rusher.

  9. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Bring Shaq Back and work out the deals from there, GO BUCS!!!

  10. Capt.Tim Says:

    My favorite Buc, other than my absolute Awe watching Brady.
    JPP. And Shaq just hammered the chiefs!! Hammered them!!
    Gotta keep those guys together.

    Joe, when are we gonna talk about
    Tyrann Mathieu’s post right after the Superbowl??
    If Brady hadnt been miked the entire game- that could have been a huge issue.

    Tyrann Mathieu

  11. Mitch Says:

    Adrnagy Shaq is a complete player, and there isn’t a good reason to let him go

    Von Miller was a great player, but I’m not excited about him coming off injury at 32 while having an open criminal investigation for domestic violence and telling the woman he got pregnant that he was praying for a miscarriage. That doesn’t sound like a person I’d want in the locker room.

    Even if the Bucs do sign Shaq back I am open to drafting an OLB/Edge because I don’t know if JPP will be back after this year.

    Bucs have the best front 7 in pro football, hate to mess with that

    Why fix something that is not broke. Vonn Miller is injured and a big unknown. Shaq is a known solution and answer that we know fits with this team. And can anyone tell me how many years have the Bucs tried to draft a pass rusher? How many years was it since Simeon had double digits was it until Shaq did it. They also are drafting with the 32nd pick of the first round. Without a pass rush they would not have beaten GB or KC. The front 7 is the foundation of the current World Champion Bucs.

    Let Shaq break the bank elsewhere.

  15. Youngbucs Says:

    Wow where going into the off-season with realistic expectations. What a thing of beauty.

  16. dmatt Says:

    JPP had 12.5 sacks for the Bucs in 2018

  17. David Says:

    I know they are making Godwin a priority and may franchise tag him…
    But Shaq and LVD are NEEDS.

    They are part of a pair.
    White and LVD.
    Shaq and JPP.
    These pieces fit together, lose one and you dimish the other.

  18. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Right on dmatt, 12.5 by JPP, so I guess that makes it 10 years from Simeon until JPP. Just trying to highlight the importance of the pass rush. The pass rush is why they were able to win the Super Bowl. GO BUCS!!!

  19. 813bucboi Says:

    front office bringing everyone back!!!!!…lets go licht!!!!

    GO BUCS!!!!

  20. Rico 210 Says:

    I’d hate to see anyone go. But Licht MUST re sign the ALL defense starters. Stat
    Go Bucs

  21. Joseph C Simmons Says:

    While Godwin may seem expendable, remember we thought we didn’t need Antonio Brown the first half of the season. Injuries happen. And if we get Brown back, remember he goes on trial in December, so he may not be available for the playoffs. We should really try to bring Godwin back.

    But signing Shaq is essential. Good pass rushers are so hard to find; there would be no replacing those QB pressures. Suh and Lavonte David are of utmost importance as well.

  22. adam from ny Says:

    gotta keep this front 7 together one more year…

    then let it go haywire if it has too…

    but one more year – to take a shot at glory mr. licht

  23. Sumosam Says:

    The Bucs will bring back everyone but maybe not Godwin. Godwin is going to get #1 money. LVD isn’t leaving because he is more valuable here than anywhere else. Stay positive my friends.

  24. MadMax Says:

    Oh we going back!!

    i put 100 on it before the season began and made 1100.

    put 100 on it again last week, 7 to 1 odds, so we’ll see….then did some online joker video poker afterwards and made that 100 back in 5 mins lol.
