The great season by the Lightning (deep playoff run) definitely helped this Bucs offseason go by faster.

Everyone talks about Gerald McCoy and how we're wasting a HOF career. But Lavonte David may be even more wasted. At least McCoy gets his due. David has one All-Pro and one Pro Bowl to his name, and they aren't even the same season. I don't think anyone could deny that playing for us and not being a 3-4 OLB have both hurt his career. At times, throughout multiple games and seasons, he's been the only one to show up on our defense and seemingly make every play. He'll go down as a Buccaneer great and fan favorite for sure, even if no one outside of Tampa will know.

Agree with this. It’s a shame that 3-4 OLBs get all the love as far as pro bowls/All pros are concerned. David has quietly built himself into the ring of honor discussion.

I actually started it first at the original Buc’s Board in either 2000 or 2001. However, I always just started with 99 days remaining but no pics of players. Then somewhere in the second year of it people started posting pics. Then the board shut down blah blah blah. So to my knowledge Kona was the first one to start it back up.


Sounds about right. I remember it back in the original board, seems like another life now. I'm just glad that the one "pics with arms up" challenge didn't carry over. That was a pain.

I wonder if Buckner went somewhere with Vea and put some pads on and tried him out one on one?

I hope not. That would be a stupid way to get slapped on the wrist, especially because training camp starts in less than a week.

We all know Vea is physical. Putting him in pads so he can slap around a sled or whatever would be pointless.

Vea may very well be my favorite player on the team, and he hasn't taken a snap yet....

Damn I hope he lives up to expectation....

I was as surprised when we took him over Derwin James, he’s not the typical Bucs pick that we seem to make (if that makes sense). Hoping he comes in an wreaks havoc for us!

The good thing about all the Dline additions is that Vea doesn't have to step in as rookie and be a savior. He can play his role in the Dline rotation w/ McCoy, Beau Allen, and Mitch Unrein.

I'm pretty excited to see our Dline this season. This is most talented front 4 and depth with our top 8 we've had in a very long time and with a monster like Vea it provides the flexibility to get creative at times with our defensive fronts in our sub packages (passing downs).

Not to read too much into a players individual off-season workouts (but I will anyways) but I've seen videos of McCoy working on a wider alignment and pass rush moves vs a LT. That's not to say McCoy wont be at his traditional 3-tech on most plays he's in there, but I'd like to see some 3-man fronts w/ Vea at the nose over the Center.

Agreed this is the most talented (on paper anyways) DL we’ve fielded in quite some time. It all starts up front, so hopefully they can gel and get some damn pass rush finally.

Also, like you mentioned, it’s great that Vea doesn’t have to come in and be a savior. He can take his time getting acclimated to the game which should only benefit him.

OT game winner in CAR after the TD/2PT connection on a beautiful Freeman pass to VJ is the only thing I remember.

Yep. I'm still convinced Freeman handed that ball off to the RB in that 2pt conversion.
