Two Sacks And A Triple For Shaq Barrett

November 28th, 2021

At the end of the day, sacks matter a lot more than pressures, hurries, farts near the quarterback or any other stat assigned to pass rushers.

It’s just that simple — no matter how hard the stat geeks try to say otherwise.

Today Bucs sacks king Shaq Barrett emerged from his three-game sack slump to crank out two sacks, including the very special “triple.” Shaq’s strip-sack and fumble recovery in the third quarter was the turning point in the game and sparked the Bucs.

Shaq now has 7 1/2 sacks this season, and officials screwed him out of a couple more earlier this season. He’s well on his way to double digits with six games remaining.

All of Shaq’s pass rushing success also has to be viewed through the lens of him being a key part of the NFL’s best run defense since 2019.

Keep hunting, Shaq!

With Jason Pierre-Paul clearly an injured shell of his usual self, the Bucs need Shaq more than ever to stay hot and stay consistent.

    Shaq was beastly! Where’s Tryon Shoyinka…dude has to step up to give JPP a chance to get healthy

    Massive play by Shaq. Our defensive backfield was battered and struggling with Desir in and White in and our.

    Needed the passrush to step up and give some love to Suh on that play blowing up the pocket……..Last week 4th and 1 when White applyed the pressure it was also Suh who was there to take away the QB stepping up!! Underrated plays.

  3. Craig Says:

    Shaq was also a big part of the reason that the Colts abandoned the run. He held on the line and went after Taylor vigorously.

    If Taylor didn’t get the ball he went to harass Wentz.

    He was all over his patch of the field.

    Suh’s a beast.

    A stat called “farts near the quaterback!” Sounds more like a personal foul to me.

    Joe’ you are in rare form after this game. Truly inspired by our Bucs!

    We are no doubt the best run defense, we let up on it late in the game when we want to we are solid

  8. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I don’t know, I think a fart near the quarterback can be effective, particularly if it’s a shart on the quarterback’s head.

  9. Irishmist Says:

    I don’t know Joe, if Vea lets one rip anywhere near the QB, that might knock him to the ground without any contact at all.

  10. Coburn Says:

    Was annoyed that the big run Wentz got for first down he ran to Shaqs side after he had just been tackled by the offensive lineman

  11. Bird Says:

    After each game , bucs anthem jumps on the field and sucks up all the farts left near the qb

    He had to, to make up for adding to our already league leading offsides penalties with over 7 seconds left on the play clock and losing contain several times especially after Wentzs 50 yard🤣 run on 3rd and 12. He’s been somewhat a big disappointment after getting the big payday.

    A big day for Shaq, congrats to him. That strip/fumble turned the game around, it can’t be overstated how big that was.
