Donald Penn Locking Down OpponentsSeptember 30th, 2009
Consider that Penn had to play two of his first three games against Dallass and the New York Giants and their two stud players, DeMarcus Ware and Osi Umenyiora.
In the season opener against Dallass, Ware, the outside linebacker/defensive end was held to a grand total of four tackles and no assists. Ware didn’t register a sack.
Fast forward two weeks later against the Giants. Umenyiora was seen and not heard. He had a grand total of zero tackles, zero assists, zero sacks.
In both games, some may suggest Penn played over his head.
Joe believes three games into the season, Penn has been the Bucs best player.
