Cornerstones Of Bucs Pass Rush Out For Jets Game

December 31st, 2021

Who is out?

Though this isn’t really a surprise, the Bucs’ pass rush will be down its two best men.

Both outside linebackers Bucs sack king Shaq Barrett and old warrior Jason Pierre-Paul will not play Sunday when the Bucs travel to SopranosLand to play the Jets.

Those are the only two Bucs players declared out for this week.

Defensive back Richard Sherman (Achilles) is listed as doubtful. Receiver Antonio Brown (ankle), Mike Evans (hamstring), receiver Justin Watson (quadriceps), safety Antoine Winfield (foot) are all listed as questionable.

    Have a hunch that Nelson, Tryon, and company will step up.

  2. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Interested to see what Cam Gill brings this game.

  3. 74 Bucs Fan Says:

    Blitz repeatedly

  4. Rick Says:

    The best pass rushers are Joe Tryon, Shaq, Nelson, Cam Gill, and JPP… in that order…

    we will be ok

  5. Jay Jay Says:

    AB already re-injured?? Gawd. That could spell doom.

  6. crazyBucs_CL Says:

    an other Tom’s close friend, don’t believe in Bucs/Tom…
    “Julian Edelman reveals ‘beef’ with Tom Brady, says Bucs won’t repeat as Super Bowl champs”
    Does this mean anything??? NO it does NOT.
    All opinions are just opinions. JE’s as well.

  7. EEK Says:

    Bucs have a history of rookie qb’s having big games against them; I hope this trend can be ended

  8. alton d green Says:

    EEK, thats a very safe bet. If our defense doesn’t keep pressure on that QB, he will carve us up!!!! So COME ON big D (and i don’t mean Dallas)

  9. Joe in Michigan Says:

    EEK: Yes, Justin Fields KILLED the Bucs. 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

  10. sasquatch Says:

    Who’s gonna step up if AB and Evans don’t play? Permian, Tyler Johnson, Cyril Grayson, Scotty Miller are not frightening as a group, though all are capable of making plays. Maybe Gronk has a big game. OJ, can you come alive? They’re probably getting creative with the game plan. Maybe they’ll play ground and pound. 🤷🏼‍♂️ Should be interesting.

  11. Tampabaybucfsn Says:

    Devin White time

  12. Steve Says:

    Isn’t Bunting and Dean out due to covid?

  13. unbelievable Says:

    Gonna see Devin White coming on A LOT of blitzes.

    BTW- Have they said any timetable on Shaq yet?

  14. R.O. Says:

    This isnt a surprise, no?

  15. Joe Says:

    Isn’t Bunting and Dean out due to covid?

    Not yet. Yes they are on the COVID list but could be activated. So they are not declared out. Yet.

  16. Joe Says:

    This isnt a surprise, no?

    Not a shock. But now it’s official.

  17. Kgh4life Says:

    If AB and Mike Evans plays, and it looks like they will, the Bucs win this running away.

  18. DG060 Says:

    Once again the injuries that this particular team accumulates is astonishing. AB may be out again.
    Alrighty then.

  19. SC. Bucs Fanqq Says:

    We can empty our practice squad and we’ll beat the jets. The important thing is to be healthy for the playoffs.

  20. PassingThru Says:

    The burning question is whether Shaq will return at any time during the playoffs.

  21. IrishTony Says:

    AB and Evans will play in a limited capacity. The d will most likely have everyone back except LD. Jesus people this will be a 20 point wi . Everyone’s going to be back by the playoffs including Shaq and JPP: I guarantee it!

  22. IrishTony Says:

    You guys don’t get what’s happening. I believe their overstating injuries to substantiate extra rest. Jesus do you really think Shaq or JPP WONT BE BACK FOR THE FING PLAYOFFS!

  23. Dewey Muse Says:

    Joe this is a headline on Fox News. Why don’t you do a story on it. I think Tommy is pissed the NFL made a big deal about it.

    NFL warns Tom Brady after viral sideline meltdown: ‘I can’t throw another Surface or else I get fined’

  24. SOEbuc Says:

    All good. We got Gholston tearin it up. 2.5 last week and he’s been getting to the QB more all year.

  25. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Time for Vea to step up and be a star … for more than 44% of plays..

  26. fern Says:

    Rest them for the playoffs we will be all right
    Gholston and Suh are paying well
    This way everyone else gets snaps

  27. Rob In Land O Lakes Says:

    Kentucky Buc said: “Interested to see what Cam Gill brings this game.”

    Same. Nelson, Tryon and he were all over the place, last week.

  28. Joe Says:


    Brady mentioned that on his boring podcast. Joe doesn’t think it’s a story.

  29. Jerry Says:

    That’s the story of the year. Promising year got destroyed by injuries. Shame. I don’t expect this team to make it past round 2. Packers, Rams, and Cowboys are getting healthy and hot, and we are limping in.

  30. Dewey Muse Says:

    K Joe. I do think he feels he is being singled out more than others. Tom would be great as head of the Players Union when he retires. He has a lot of opinions about the NFL suits & their decisions.

  31. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Guess we could start a go fund me page if they fine TB😂😂😂😂

  32. sasquatch Says:


    We were 7-5 at one point last year and we didn’t look that great. Do you think we might be underestimating this team? Maybe.

  33. Joe Says:

    Tom would be great as head of the Players Union when he retires.

    He would be but Brady has a lot of bigger fish to fry. For one, he owns his own Hollywood production studio and it has already produced some stuff. Lot of money in them thar Hollywood hills.

    Joe has a hunch Brady wants to buy a piece of an NFL team.

  34. SB~LV Says:

    Brutal game and the owners added one more round to the heavyweight fight… still a long road to the Super Bowl

  35. Snookman Says:

    This is the first official post of 2022

  36. David Says:

    Hopefully healthy for the playoffs … like half the team!

  37. Evo Says:

    Why don’t we just cut Sherman? How many useful snaps has he really given us? And how much can he really teach our dbs?
