A Few Milestones For DavidDecember 3rd, 2012
Searching for something uplifting to help get through this day, Joe’s going to give Lavonte David a virtual pat on the back for putting a big notch on his rookie superhero belt yesterday.
David cleanly picked off Peyton Manning in the second half, the first aerial snatch of his career. That’ll be a nice tale to tell his kids one day when his hopefully Pro Bowl Bucs career is over.
David is Joe’s Bucs rookie of the year to date — even ahead of Doug Martin. David broke 100 tackles yesterday, is fifth in the NFL in tackles and has been the Bucs’ most consistent — and possibly most talented — defensive player.
Throw in that David handles the defensive playcalling duties and is among the league leaders in tackles for loss, and Joe can find a grin on this gloomy Monday.
