Ndamukong Suh Coaching Up Joe Tryon

August 15th, 2021

Bucs OLB Joe Tryon.

Between Ndamukong Suh’s image of being a bad boy on the football field and his quiet, almost soft demeanor off the field, what is lost about Suh is that he really is a smart guy.

Suh, who has been known to terrorize quarterbacks, began to adapt his style of play as the NFL has gotten terribly flag-happy in overprotecting quarterbacks.

We saw this obscenity last night when Joe Tryon had a perfectly fine sack of Bengals quarterback Brandon Allen, only to get a flag for — as the zebras told Bucs Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians — Tryon had too much bodyweight on Allen.

While Joe understands that’s technically a rule, it’s insulting to think a player in mid-play can somehow remember to shift his bodyweight away from a quarterback. Not to mention doing so gives a quarterback an escape route.

So basically in order not to get a 15-yard penalty, a pass rusher has to generate rotten tackling technique.

Last night after the game, Tryon was asked if he will start mimicking Suh when he goes after quarterbacks? Suh has learned to just shove quarterbacks to the ground to avoid similar penalties.

Think of how Suh rag-dolled Aaron Rodgers last year in the regular season. Suh never really tackled Rodgers, he just tossed him to the ground.

“That’s literally what he told me,” Tryon said of Suh when Tryon came to the sidelines after his penalty.

Tryon confessed that he’s going to try to learn how to do just that. But that may be tricky, he added.

“I can’t practice that because a quarterback is not live [in practice],” Tryon said.

Tryon chuckled when he was reminded for that very play in college Tryon would have earned a helmet sticker. In the NFL, it’s a penalty and maybe a fine from the league. Tryon said not repeating that play is just a simple matter of him learning to “adapt and adjust.”

Despite the penalty, Tryon said he got satisfaction in the sack.

“It was a good feeling to hit the quarterback again.”

    This guy has a protype build. I’d bet he could play TE too

  2. Bucfanforever Says:

    But of course, don’t arm whip them to the ground. That’s also a penalty

  3. SB~LV Says:

    Could almost see if improving as the “game” went on .
    Agree there are other ways to take out a QB than risking helmets to helmets.

  4. Cobraboy Says:

    Tryon’s first step is amazing. Stellar. Very few humans have that ability and those that do get long-term yuge multi-year guaranteed NFL contracts.

    I see a massive pile of pre-snap OL jump penalties in that young man’s future.

    Joe Tryon will be a very fun player to watch, Buc sycophants!

    The new Bucs drinking game: Drink every time Joe Tryon says “Dude or Dudes.”

    I watched several games over the weekend and while I am all for the safety of players the game has greatly diminished. Within 10 years we will be seeing glorified Flag Football or even 2 hand touch. The Tyron hit was not even close to a penalty. Hell the lines bash helmets on every play. Beach Volley Ball anyone?

  7. Bellingham Bucs Fan Says:

    Could have had McCoy teaching him to play patty cake and avoided that penalty.

  8. Anonymous Says:

    Pretty soon, the two hand shove will be outlawed…too much weight behind that shove. Trifecta of jackasses…the commish, rules commity and refs.

  9. Anonymous Says:

    The irony of it all? That’s how the rules state you should tackle Mr. Softee, and the teams coach the players to tackle with that technique. Head to the left or right of the target, with shoulders square and chest up. Shouldn’t there be a fine for the rules committee and league office, as there is for the player, as well? You can’t make the stuff up. Lol.

    Tryon looked impressive as all hell. That penalty was utter nonsense. I LOVE football, but if they keep sissifying these rules and continue to take five minutes and longer to make rulings that are instantly clear to us common folk, I’m going to start fishing on Sundays. 😛

  11. BuccaneerScotty Says:

    I agree keep messing with the game and I’ll be fishing also! Why do they think people like the game? Big HITS and big Plays!!

  12. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    This dude sounds like a smart young man. Already thinking on how to adjust his game but dude enjoying that first hit. Noah Spence should’ve learned to do that. That dude wasn’t too smart. Joe’s catch phrase for every solo sack and tackle should “Dude TRY that ON for size!!!”

    I remember in LV last year Patricia Myhomies looking around like “Dudes where’s my flag???” When Suh bowed him in the head and the refs were like ” Nah dude you gets none!” Dude thought he had a friend and the refs were like “duude, psyche!!! I just knew they were gonna throw one! “Tom Brady said to Chase Young, ” Dude! You had me! What happened to you??? Didn’t even feel your presence”

    Red Mirage dude I’ll drink to that!

    Cobraboy nice foresight, I see that too. Funny about those penalties

    Yes, Sir! Very good point.

  15. Court XXXVII Says:

    Yeah, Tryon has happy feet at the line. Did you see him dancing pre-snap, all jacked up? Maybe Suh can help with that, too. LOVE the energy and dynamism the kids brings, though. Will be super fun to watch.

    The NFL has been actively making their product suck more and not reach year for the last 10 years straight.

    I used to watch every single game I could. Now I mostly just watch the Bucs and maybe 1 other game a week. The quality of the product just is t what it used to be.

    F the league office and F roger.
