Joe Tryon-Shoyinka Gets His Snaps Slashed

December 6th, 2022

Smart move by the defensive shotcaller.

Joe applauded the beastly more physical look from the Bucs’ edge rushers last night.

It was about time.

Second-year starter Joe Tryon-Shoyinka had been getting exposed far too much in the run game, and last Joe checked, Todd Bowles’ defense is very much about stuffing the run first and blitzing teams on 3rd-and-long and 2nd-and-long.

Tryon-Shoyinka started last night against the slimy Saints, but he had his snaps slashed to 34 total. That’s about 20 fewer than he averaged through the prior four games.

Carl Nassib picked up the slack with 29 snaps, his biggest total of the season. The Bucs’ run defense was more stout and Nassib scored a huge sack on the final and critical defensive stop — with Tryon-Shoyinka off the field. Nassib also batted a key pass on an earlier fourth-quarter drive.

Right now, less Tryon-Shoyinka looks like a good thing. He’s not producing enough big plays to make up for his weaknesses.

Without Shaq Barrett, the Bucs appear better off with a true rotation to keep their edge rushers fresh and to benefit from the physicality of Nassib and Anthony Nelson, and that’s what they got last night.

    When I watch Tryon he looks to be still to green to me to be a starter but in time he will get better I hope

  2. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Is it me or does Carlton Davis looks like he is always playing scared?

  3. Red Skeleton Says:

    And with fewer snaps it looked to me like his worse game so far. He was a total non factor.

  4. BucsFanSince76 Says:

    A real concern is the almost total disappearance of Logan Hall (33rd pick in the draft) who has not hit the stat sheet in 3 of the last 4 games.

  5. Your Mom Says:

    Ian Beckles be like, mmmhmm.

  6. FortMyersDave Says:

    LVMYBUCS: Davis plays like someone who just got paid about $30 million guaranteed, definitely not like the dude playing hard for that big pay day nearing the end of his rookie contract!

  7. Buc4evr Says:

    JTS is a backup at best. He will never develop into a JPP like player. He can’t even get through single coverage and can’t hold the edge. I bet he is gone from the Bucs within 2 years.

  8. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Kudos to the Defense last night. They held the fort giving the Offense a chance to comeback.

  9. D-Rome Says:

    JTS will never be a prime time player. We all know who he is. Let’s not waste time pretending he’ll be anything more than what he is and that’s a backup.

  10. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We destroyed the Saints running game last night……..they had 25 rushes for 66 yards……Kamara was held to 12 rushes for 25 yards…….one of our best run defense games…..
    Gholston played well with 6 tackles and LVD was a force with 12.

    Joe’s favorite Saint, Taysom Hill had 3 rushes for 10 yards……

  11. ElioT Says:

    JTS is a bust.

  12. brooks Says:

    Wait till next week we’re going to be ran on all night long we must stop the run

  13. Thomas Edrington Says:

    Joe Tryon (he’s not good enough to have three names) — is not living up to the slot he was taken in the draft…….it’s what happens when you draft on “potential” — and the true definition of “potential” is: “right now you suck”

  14. Beej Says:

    If I had a nickel for every time I saw JTS flail away against a tackle…

  15. Winny Testaverde Says:

    Joe “Barely” Tryon…finesse player who may have a DQ’d Bowers like career.

  16. Mord Says:

    I keep wondering if JTS and Logan Hall are still on the team

  17. Browsing from DC Says:

    The D was great all night, especially when it counted (minus a few blown coverages….but they’re backups for a reason).

    JTS has a lot of potential but I have to think better coaching would help. He needs a ton of work before he can be a true starter.

    He looked utterly ridiculous when Dalton was scrambling toward the sideline. He faked JTS out of his cleats and he slipped and fell on his face like he hit a patch of ice. Andy freaking Dalton faked him out! That was an embarrassing look for the kid. Those kinds of embarrassing whiffs are what Barry Sanders did to make defenders look foolish, not Andy freaking Dalton!

    He reminds me of one of those homemade rockets being lit by a kid in an “America’s Funniest Home Videos” clip. It just zooms around really fast, doesn’t go anywhere near where it’s supposed to and ends up hitting Dad in the crotch. It’s funny when it’s kids goofing around but sad when it’s a pro athlete getting paid millions.

    Hats off to Nelson and especially Nassib. They were clutch.

  18. kyle Says:

    Keanu Neal seemed to be everywhere last night.. shades of ronde Props to Nassib and Nelson!! Both of those boys played hard and Carl’s sack was a game changer.

  19. Gofortheface30 Says:

    Imagine that, a guy that could just as easily run up and kiss you instead of tackle you is way more tough than JTS. JTS, as I’ve said before runs around at times like a baby giraffe. All over the place. He may have “tested” well but he does not play to his athleticism or strength, and is out of position. He is most definitely not that guy

  20. MadMax Says:

    A wasted first….they shouldve listened to me and took LG Landon Dickerson….he went a few picks later. I hadnt even heard of this JTS at the time.

  21. Thisisouryear!! Says:

    We miss JPP.

  22. BFFL5678 Says:

    Nassib and Nelson should have been getting playing more this whole time. Nassib has always been decent and Nelson proves himself each time he’s in the game. JTS will only be a situational player. It seems like we have been drafting for speed instead of actual playing ability. McCollum is a great example that man cannot tackle anyone.

  23. SlyPirate Says:

    You want to talk about a young, inexperienced, liability … Zyon. Wow! He’s not good.

  24. IrishTony Says:

    Licht’s had some really great picks and really crappy picks: Mike Evans vs Austin S Jenkins but he’s been poor to average with edge rushers-Noah Spence vs Anthony Nelson.

  25. IrishTony Says:

    Bowers was Dominiks’ pick but let’s not go there.

  26. IrishTony Says:

    JTT is a non factor at this point. I like Nelson though.

  27. Pewter Power Says:

    Guy needs to train with Simeon rice. I saw this guy trying to bull rush all night. He has zero pass rush moves and if not for his quickness would be useless

  28. T REX Says:

    Another Blue-Licht special – kmart style

    Jason Licht is trash people…wait till next year’s cap hell

  29. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    JTS hasn’t quite learned the tricks of his trade yet. He needs to hurry up, and learn them.

  30. Show Me the TDs Says:

    This is exhibit #12 as to why Bowles is a very good DC, but a poor head coach. He realized the issue and fixed it. On offense, he hasn’t a clue. You can’t be the head coach of a third of the team, and hope to be successful.

  31. BuxfaninTX Says:

    Wow Madmax the Bucs SHOULD listen to you next time. I bet that the Glazers will conference call you next draft

  32. Cchead Says:

    About 12 games to late.

  33. D-Rok Says:

    JTS just has no power yet. Maybe next year he will show improvement.

    Nelson, Nassib, and Avery look better to me, at this point.

    JTS is fast for his size – use his speed.

  34. MadMax Says:

    Lol buxfan….ive been here since a year after the Joes started this website…its well known they tune in to me sometimes and tune me out other times. You must be new here, never seen your username….and yes, i agree, there should be a conference call with me and i should be a paid scout for them….but im not, and why would they pay me when i put it out for free on here anyway…thank you for caring😁

  35. steele Says:

    Long time coming, Bowles.

    JTS, Nassib and Nelson are all rotational almost JAGs, but at least Nassib and Nelson are experienced and more physical than JTS.

    JTS has a quick first step. Everything beyond that needs serious work. Not a legit starter, and definitely not the next coming.

    Without Shaq and JPP, the edge rush is a problem

  36. BucU Says:

    I applaud benching JTS. You either produce or u sit.
    That might be the only thing I’ve agreed with from this coaching staff this year.
    And Logan Hall? Bitterly dissatisfied with both of them.

  37. Mike Johnson Says:

    Joe Tryon is a nice backup. Somebody to come in and give you all-out effort on a few plays. But he just does not show a lot when we need him too. He is not a bust. Just not a starter.

  38. Fire the Glazers Says:

    My friend and I call JTS “strap-on” because he doesn’t play like a real man.

  39. Hunter's Crack Pipe Says:

    Thisisouryear!! Says:
    “We miss JPP.”

    JPP’s shoulder injury is one with a bad record for players returning from. Plus, he probably would have never returned for what he is playing for now. He had to hit the free agent market to be humbled.

    Fire the Glazers Says:
    “My friend and I call JTS “strap-on” because he doesn’t play like a real man.”

    LOL *giggles like a teenager*

  41. Ernest S Hunter Says:

    Move JTS to any LB spot. Leave Carlton Davis alone. We’ll win the division and when all DBs are healthy we’re hosting and Silly philly along with the cowgirls don’t stand a chance. Straight up

  42. Crunchbuc Says:

    Been saying he is a bust since day one. Stand by that. B U S T

  43. Tony1775 Says:

    Good he isn’t good.

  44. Crickett Baker Says:

    I think JTS will improve. He is usually around good plays even though he doesn’t make many. I think he has potential and if he gets snaps and coaching I think he will do much better.

  45. biff barker Says:

    JTS couldn’t even make an NFL roster right now.

    He’s a none trick pony. Cut him this season. Cut the scout too.


  46. garro Says:

    Ditto Joes
    The “Back-ups” (Nassib and Nelson) have been playing well.
