Give Me A Home Where David Can “Rome”


Buccaneers nine year veteran linebacker and the man many believe is the most underrated player in the game, Lavonte David made an appearance in the jungle on Tuesday.  The NFL All Decade, leading tackler in the NFL since 2012, Pro Bowl, All Pro, 2 time All American at Nebraska had a chat with an old friend.


Saying All The Right Things

On the Jim Rome Show Tuesday, host Jim Rome broke right out of the gate with a question that never gets dull in these COVID-19 times. What does a normal day look like for the Buccaneer? The former Nebraska Cornhusker answered that he got a workout in this morning at 9:00 am. He said he had just finished a virtual meeting with Tampa Bay Buccaneers inside linebackers coach Mike Caldwell. He then said that he would help out the rest of the day and make himself useful. Just remember that “social distancing”.

Talk then turned to the Buccaneers new quarterback and his side kick Robin. The native of Miami, Florida and longest tenured member of the Buccaneers talked of what it meant that Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski would want to “join this young nucleus“, Join our locker room“. He stated that their joining the team had “raised expectations even higher“. David also talked about how the Buccaneers had went from “the hunter, to the hunted“.

About The Nationally Televised Games In 2020

When asked about the 2020 schedule and whats the difference between a normal game and playing on national television, David gave just the answer you love to hear from the leader of the Buccaneer defense. Preparing for the game is no different. ‘You know the whole world is watching you play“, so we want to “show the world how we belong on that stage“. He also spoke about only going from playing only one nationally televised game, a Thursday game at that, to know playing five nationally televised games in 2020.

Coming Out Party 

Stomping the NFC Southeast. Reigning supreme. Bragging rights and another Lombardi Trophy in the trophy case at One Buc Place. All very good reasons for Buccaneers fans to cheer. Add to that list a chance for the entire world to know what Buccaneer fans have for awhile now. That Lavonte David might just be the most underrated player in the NFL.
