Joe Tryon-Shoyinka And Snaps

November 26th, 2021

Bucs OLB Joe Tryon-Shoyinka.

Three weeks ago when the Bucs got spanked by a never-been of a bum like Trevor Siemian (have you noticed the slimy Saints have lost every game Mr. Entertainment, America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, hasn’t started?), rookie pass rusher Joe Tryon-Shoyinka had a grand total of eight snaps.

And he was healthy.

That was just about sinful. He got few more in the next game, the second-straight game the Bucs shat the bed, 19 snaps at Washington.

Still, for a guy who has mad skills and needs the work, it was almost a damn shame the Bucs were having him rust on the sidelines, especially since ultimate warrior Jason Pierre-Paul has admitted he’s going through the worst injury of his career.

Well, against the Giants, the Bucs found a way to use JTS more. They lined him up inside. And JTS had three quarterback pressures and three hurries and should have had a sack.

However, yesterday Bucs defensive coordinator Todd Bowles threw cold water on the idea that JTS’s snap count would rise even more. Bowles admitted he wants JTS on the field but he doesn’t want to put him out there just to put him out there and louse up the defensive gameplan.

“Depending on the game, we try to get him on the field as much as possible,” Bowles said in his weekly presser. “But we have a lot of good football players. We have to make sure while getting him on the field, we don’t jeopardize the play and the positions of the other guys on the field.

“He’s a tough player. He’s a bright guy. He can do a lot of things for us.”

Joe gets where Bowles is coming from. And as much as Joe loves JPP, it’s clear he’s not his normal self. Maybe if he had less snaps he would be more effective as he tries to gut through his torn rotator cuff?

Joe loved how Bowles used JTS creatively Monday night by lining him up inside. He’s too quick.

The trick this Sunday is, the Colts have a far better offensive line and inside players than the Giants. And if JTS is lined up inside, might Carson Wentz audible out and run right at him?

    While Pete’s having leftover Monkfish & pickled Pigs Feet for breakfast, he ponders over how patient Todd Bowles will be if JPP is ineffective. DO NOT SCREW AROUND w/ JPP……play guys who can use BOTH ARMS

    The Saints are 0-4 since yet another post game dance party after beating the Bucs. Pretty sure the football gods don’t like that hubris much.

    Bucs are playing the JPP & JTS situation right in my opinion. Letting the proud warrior (JPP) give it all he has until he has no more. A sack/strip by JTS is coming…maybe as early as Sunday.

    Joe I have an off topic question for JBF. I have noticed player suspensions for PED’s have virtually disappeared of late, when just a few years ago failed whizz quizzes were popping up all across the NFL. Not that I object mind you, but I help but to be curious. What happened?

    Players were getting busted for Adderall w/o a prescription. Looks like they wised-up & got legal prescriptions for it (and get it approved by the NFL before taking it, legally).

  5. RPK Says:

    In 159 pass rush snaps this season, JTS has 21 pressures per PFF. In 282 reps, Pierre-Paul has 17 pressures.

    JPP continues to hinder the Bucs pass rush.

    FREE JTS !!!

    JTS should be in on almost every passing down.

    Pete’s having leftover sheep sweetbreads today…

    As for JTS……it’s quite clear that JPP is less effective this year….and Shaq hasn’t been much better…..Devin White has been our primary pass rusher……

    But, doesn’t everybody know the guys that get paid more get to play more?….(sarcasm)

  8. Beeej Says:

    JTS usually comes in on obvious passing situations, so his snap>>pressure ratio is gonna look better

  9. Craig Says:

    Still have to remember that he sat out a year, so his stamina is still questionable. We will need him later, and he might bonk if run to hard.

    JPP is in decline, in some ways, he still has great timing on getting his arms up to bat passes down. That might be a key in this game. Wentz has a pretty traditional throwing motion that JPP could exploit.

  10. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Mike Edwards should also be on the field more. The Bucs are undefeated when he has an interception.

  11. captivajim Says:

    bowles has to focus on the run & JPP is not very effective against the run-especially this season with that torn rotator

  12. Anonymous Says:

    So they’re making excuses to NOT play their best pass rusher? I thought the idea was to harass the QB into checkdowns so White and David can make plays underneath…if not hit/sack the QB? And you’re holding back the one guy who’s doing the most consistently on your defense? Ah, that’s why these coaches get paid the big bucks. Lol.

  13. Austin Says:

    IMO we need our earth movers clogging up the middle and taking as many blockers as they can

  14. Chris l Says:

    Why are we still defending Winston? The guy sucks and isn’t on the team. He’s the enemy now. The guy embarrassed this franchise.

    #FreeJTS !!!!

  16. Wild Bill Says:

    Bucs better rotate d line early and often to stay fresh. Washington game showed they can be worn down. If the Bucs can score early and often it could force Buffalo to play catch up with its weaker pass game. A low scoring grind game would not favor the Bucs.

  17. Hodad Says:

    Yeah, run right at him. He’ll lose some, but he’s special enough to win his share, and make some splash plays.
