Three Pro Bowlers On Defense?December 26th, 2013
Joe knows there is a push for NFL types to name Bucs linebacker Lavonte David as the defensive player of the year. He certainly is the Bucs defensive player of the year, but the stain of that stupid penalty in the media capital of the world in Week 1 likely has branded David for the foreseeable future. Unfair, yes. But that’s how the cookie crumbles.
Gerald McCoy is now considered one of the elite defensive tackles in the game. So he sure is a Pro Bowl player.
But the numbers geeks at ProFootballFocus.com have run through their spreadsheets and determined the Bucs actually merit three Pro Bowl players. A certain Bucs cornerback also made their list.
A guy by the name of Darrelle Revis.
The Pro Bowl announcement of those who won the combined player, fan and coach voting is expected Friday evening.
What makes this interesting is that Revis is still not the same corner he was before he blew his knee out last year and had ACL surgery Yet he has turned the corner and is playing good ball.
Imagine how good he can be when his knee is back to form?
Three Pro Bowl players? Damn that Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik!
