Ed Reed Says Leonard Fournette’s Block On Micah Parsons Was A “Cheap Shot;” A.Q. Shipley Fed Up With The Whining

September 16th, 2022

Threatens to expose whiners.

Man, now a Hall of Famer is coming after Playoff Lenny.

Playoff Lenny got all sorts of defenders triggered when his chip block on Cowboys star pass rusher Micah Parsons helped Tom Brady buy time to complete a 48-yard bomb to Julio Jones Sunday in Dallas.

It enraged Bills star pass rusher Von Miller, who took his outrage on a Twitter campaign — and to NFL Network and Bleacher Report — demanding NFL warden Roger Goodell ban the chip block. Joe has already spelled out how Miller’s demand is a trojan horse.

Parsons himself went on Twitter and called Playoff Lenny a (female kitten) for not first allowing Parsons to square up on Playoff Lenny before Playoff Lenny teed up Parsons.

Now add Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed to the mix.

Reed, speaking in a video on The33rdTeam.com, spelled out how this was an example of offensive players getting away with murder while defensive players are slowly stripped of the ability to play football.

Reed is right about how defensive players can no longer play the good, hard-hitting football right-thinking thinking Americans crave. But Reed is wrong about Playoff Lenny.

Reed thought Playoff Lenny’s block was a cheap shot but let Joe be perfectly clear: Ed Reed did not call Playoff Lenny a dirty player and in fact, Reed made it clear he doesn’t believe Playoff Lenny is a dirty player.

“It was definitely a cheap shot,” Reed said of Playoff Lenny’s block. “I don’t think Leonard Fournette is a cheap shot guy. I don’t think he is that kind of player. But he definitely — I think that was a cheap shot.”

Well, a guy who blocked for Playoff Lenny during the Bucs’ 2020 Super Bowl run and also was a Bucs assistant offensive line coach last season, is sick and tired of defensive players’ whining. A.Q. Shipley, who is also Bucs center Robert Hainsey’s personal coach, unloaded on what he sees as hypocrisy.

Shipley took to Twitter and threatened to expose many by showing video of defensive linemen doing to left guards coming off stunts exactly the same technique Playoff Lenny rang up Parsons.

Joe cannot believe the hornet’s next Playoff Lenny has kicked up. It’s like offensive dudes aren’t allowed to blast defenders.

Maybe defenders ought to be aware of their surroundings and keep their heads on a swivel?

    It’s incredible how football players are complaining about this block. It’s down right silly. In no way was it a cheap shot. It was a good hard nose block, plain and simple.

  2. Ash Says:

    Wow this hasn’t blown over yet? Learn to take and L and move on, it happens all over the field sometimes you get em and sometimes you get got move on.

  3. CleanHouse Says:

    I miss the A train

  4. Jerry R Jones Says:

    DE’s job is to wreck the QB, but Parsons got legally smacked in the mouth instead. Great talent, odd mentality for a warrior.

  5. CrackWise Says:

    Well, the “NEXT LT” has surely made a name for himself.

    @Joe, do us all a solid and get LTs opinion on this play. I have a feeling it will end all of this BS.

    If I ever hear this guy’s name in the same sentence as ANY of the greats. Including, LVD and DW. I will absolutely throw a bucket of ICE water on it.

    THIS DUDE RUINED his legacy in year TWO. He is a flamer in the truest since of the expression.

  6. Tye Says:

    Sounds like an example of guys large of talent but small in brains…
    ‘Waaaa, getting double teamed will hurt our success.. Daddy Goodell, please tell them to stop it!’

  7. Bucanero Says:

    Wirfs kind said the same about the twist stunts. Will this be discussed by owners at the end the season? maybe. In the time being, keep’em comin’ got to protect 12 from those who want to retire him. I think I heard that from many opposing defenders

  8. CrackWise Says:

    Now that I got that LT take off my chest.

    Everyone, mourn with me as we witness this civil war.

    After this battle, we will be blessed with a game of flag football for a premium price over on Amazon and Disney +

  9. ElioT Says:

    Wow… this post wasn’t proof-read before publishing. Yikes!

  10. Goatfarmer Says:

    I want to see all BUCS backs executing the Lenny Pancake. Especially Lenny and Ko.

  11. Bucsfan13 Says:

    Speaking of whiners, I love Fitzmagic, but he’s been on every podcast lately complaining about being slighted by Brady when he played for the Patriots. Like, it’s been five years now. I can’t believe he’s allowing Brady to live rent free in his head all these years. I don’t think Tom has acknowledged him once. Fitzpatrick also got in his feelings when he was asked about the water slide incident when he played for Washington. Love you Ryan, but it’s time to move on.

  12. CrackWise Says:


    STFU, NO ONE CAREs about that. Nowhere near the same ZIPCODE. Go back to defending JW or something.

  13. Mort Says:

    Sunday can’t come soon enough…

    In the meantime, absolutely put together a reel of parsons doing this same crap, please!

  14. CrackWise Says:


    What are you talking about? Are your feelings hurt because AQ called everyone out that is crying?

    Thats what you call a MAN!!! and thats also what you call the demise of all things Football if he goes through with it.

  15. CrackWise Says:

    I Promise you, if this continues beyond Sunday. I will quit watching football after this season. BET

    Frak that Cowgirl and anyone who stands for that rainbow flavored BS. In fact. I might be done with it all right now.

    I am so disgusted. I don’t think I will be back for a while. Enjoy this Pusy ares game yall.

  16. CrackWise Says:


    There is no real, the guy only has one move. Run as fast as he can past the tackle and hit the QB.

    On second thought, his other move is to CRY ABOUT BEING BLOCKED because people are trying to stop him AND FURTER RUIN THE GAME.

    B!tch Nagger needs to go play water polo or something. Maybe they care how “SPECIAL” he is

  17. CrackWise Says:

    This is the kind of stuff that got Gruden black balled. COULD YOU IMAGINE Chuckie going off on this situation.

    No one would like his choice words, but he would be 100% correct!!! BET

  18. Bucschamp Says:

    Von Miller need to get some views for his show

  19. richbucsfan Says:

    Enough of this idiocy. If “Lay ‘em out” Lenny’s block was cheap, then EVERY blind side hit on a QB is too. Just shut up, Whiners.

  20. LongSeason Says:

    I hate the way the NFL and NFL fans treat Buc players. If a guy were on another team and made a block like that on Devin White they would call it a great block. But when a Buccaneer player knocks a player on their ass its a cheap shot.
    We all know the rest of the NFL hates Tampa Bay. They always have and they always will. They think we should be their little b******* but I think Tampa players should hit even harder and keep knocking the snot out of other teams.
    To win a team needs to be physical. In order to be physical, a player and team need to play with a controlled anger. The hit you, hit them harder back. They hit harder still then blow them up. Punish them. Make them feel it. Make it painful. Make them think twice about and doubt their career choice. Make them ask themselves, “Is it worth it? Is it worth this pain inflicted on me by this team?”
    Just don’t play dirty. Don’t try to injure. Just inflict pain. Then you can enforce your will on opponents.

  21. Anonymous Says:

    Lenny better be careful this Sunday as many of these NFL defenders may have paid into the “hurt Lenny fund” since they know the Saints play that kind of ball and take up money to make it happen…

  22. DarenGibo Says:

    Lenny better be careful this Sunday as many of these NFL defenders may have paid in to the “Hurt Lenny” fund as they KNOW the Saints play that kind of ball AND take money to make it happen.


    Had Lenny done that to anyone else on the cowboys we wouldn’t even be talking about this still. Parsons got embarrassed and is salty about it. That’s all.

  24. SufferingSince76 Says:

    I didn’t realize so many of these NFL players were really little girls.

  25. VSyl Says:

    Can’t believe these great players are such whinners…

  26. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Where is BA when you need him. These whinging biaches should get slapped in the head.

  27. Jmarkbuc Says:

    DE’s blindsiding a QB is in their job description, but this dude wants to whine about a front facing chip block?

    Lawrence Taylor wouldn’t have cried like a B!tch.

  28. Panhandle Buc Says:

    Sounds like the defenders don’t like being the hunted! Tables have turned…

  29. Duane Says:

    Its just week 1 shade. Next week will be a new thing. Oh, the angst and outrage. Somewhere Emperor Palpatine is sitting on his throne embracing the negativity and getting his dark side on. Looking forward to Lenny brutally stepping on defenders as he runs through him being a thing next week.

  30. Mike Says:

    The only thing cheap is the crack your smoking Ed.

  31. Erik Hesson - Fine Artist - City of St Pete- Founder of UniqueModernArt.com Says:

    This situation is just life when Travis Kelce did his whiney crybaby tour after our Superbowl victory composing about Ebro little thing and making excuses for their a$$ whoopin. Losers

  32. John Dixon Says:

    Bucs fans starting to sound like old Patriots fans. First, while legal it was a cheap shot. Doesn’t matter who won or lost. Also you watch the game and you will see how it turned out when Parsons met him up and up straight on. Parsons ate his lunch. Going to be a gas next year when Brady leaves and this team goes back into the crapper just like the Patriots. You reap what you sew. Might want to use some respect now so post Brady you aren’t dragged through the dirt like you are doing others now. For those under 40, that is called sportsmanship.

  33. J Ghotier Says:

    Wait, you think that only “right-thinking thinking Americans” crave old school hard-nosed, hard-hitting Football?! 🤯 that is so bizarre on multiple layers

    I’m not even “left-thinking” and I think that comment is beyond words and adjectives to relay. Nor am I “right-thinking” and I love old school “just give us 17 points – Warren Sapp” and we will win. Some of the most amazing games I’ve ever watched were in 90’s and the final score may have been, but 15-12.

    Don’t be a part of the problem. Wow, that was a silly comment, but also not to be expected…considering!

  34. August 1976 Buc Says:

    AQ Shipley was right on, you can do it to offensive guys, and I mean nailing o lineman from the side, but the moment a defensive guy gets rocked by a straight forward chip block, OMG they are freaking out.

    There was nothing cheap about the block. It is called football.

    It was not any kind of blind side block, it was straight forward.

    Defensive guys are crying wolf on this.

    GO BUCS!!!!

  35. SickofLosing Says:

    Once again, it’s like gang tackling for the defense. Ball carrier is wrapped up but not going down and a defender blasts him from behind running full speed. The ball carrier is defenseless. Might as well just go to flag football. SMH SAD!!!

  36. BuddhaBuc Says:

    @Mike – Nice one =-]

  37. DRFEELGOOD Says:

    What a hypocrite you are John Dixon (obvious Pats fan). Your team sucks now because your cheating coach sucks at drafting players. We obviously won’t be as good without the GOAT but we are loaded everywhere else. So enjoy the plummeting dynasty that will never return under Belicheat’s watch. Maybe they should go back to cheating again. When you have to cheat WITH Brady, you must suck in reality.

  38. Beejezus-belt Says:

    So, Lenny didn’t go for the legs or the head, is he supposed to watch the defense sack the QB. How about instead of lowering your head and bulrush, you keep your head up and pay attention to your surroundings. This argument that only one guy can block me, is making defensive players look foolish. Next up, no more pulling guards or tackles.

  39. gbobucsfan Says:

    If you want to see a cheap shot, go back and watch the Rams/Bills game. Bobby Wagner blindsided a Bills player and no one is b*tching about that.

  40. Kentucky Buc Says:

    You can’t reap much from sewing, maybe some scraps of thread.

  41. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Sow seeds, and still no flag.

  42. gotbbucs Says:

    Cheap shot or not, it was a legal block….and it was awesome.

  43. CrackWise Says:

    For the record, just watched the reply of the INT that Brady threw.

    Watch the Dallas defender #28 go head hunting on ME13. He clearly attempted to hit him from behind. And on several other plays, came around looking to clean Mikes clock.

    Additionally, look at the deep shot to BP that he dropped. The Safty clearly hits him in the head with intent.

    No flag on either, and you don’t hear ANYONE on the Bucs side complaining. WHY, because its FOOTBALL. These guys are PAID to be violent by FANS who appreciate the NATURE of the game. This is why MMA is so popular.

    We don’t want to see guys get hurt. But we appreciate the punishment that they take for our entertainment.

    So @John Dixon no one on the Bucs side is complaining about anything. OTHER THAN, Dallas is trying to ruin the game and is blaming it on Tampa.


  44. View from 132 Says:

    I think defensive players are just fed up not being to hit anyone, but being allowed to be hit. This has not much to do with Lenny… could’ve been anyone. Almost every personal foul call you see would’ve been legal 20 years ago, and 99% are on the defense. Look at stiff arms compared to the tick-tack PI calls in every game.

  45. Alvafan Says:

    Did Troy Vincent say anything about it yet? He hates everything Bucs so I figured he might’ve crucified Lenny Legend by now.

  46. Pewter Power Says:

    Oh Ed reed for sure has cheap shots circulating on the internet before this block, he should really shut up. I wish that hit would have been against the dirty saints because no one would have said a word

  47. Hunter's Crack Pipe Says:

    John Dixon Says:
    “For those under 40, that is called sportsmanship.”

    So sportsmanship to you is to stop and not block a defender if you think he might fall down as a result?

    Do you even football, Bro?
