There’s A New 91 In Town

July 28th, 2011

Woe is Stylez White. The Bucs’ sack leader over the past four seasons now has a rookie wearing his number. There’s a bad sign, or a good sign, depending on your perspective.

The guy now with No. 91 is manbeast-in-waiting Da’Quan Bowers, who passed his physical days ago, in case you were wondering.

Joe’s not bashing Stylez here. The guy was a top-flight backup with a great personal story. He just didn’t deliver like he needed to in 2010.

Amazing when you think about the razor thin success-failure game in the NFL. Stylez had 4 1/2 sacks last year. If luck/fate breaks a little more his way and he had, say, seven sacks, he likely would be entertaining plenty of offers right now. But it seems the opposite is true, so Joe documented earlier today.

Regardless, there’s a new No. 91 to cheer, and he’s probably the biggest X factor in the Bucs’ lineup.

    As I said before the signs are everywhere, Stylez take the best deal you can anywhere you can and best wishes Dude!

    Now Stylez can play “Ain’t it Awful” with Kyle Moore, who had his number literally ripped off his back and sewed on to Adrian Clayborn without prior notification.

    Good, they both stank it up. Btch all you want.

    I hope Stylez catches on with another team. It looks like he is done here in Tampa.

  5. Meh Says:

    Adios Stylez. We tolerated you until we could replace you.

  6. Pat Says:

    Lot of douchery going on right here.

    has anyone seen L. Blount? and does he look like he was working out this offseason or eating twinkies?

  8. Derek 'OldSchool' Fournier Says:

    Nice article. Stylez is a good guy who needed a good year and didn’t have one. Hope for the best (and I hope they at least communicated this to him though there was no obligation to do so.

    Word about LGB is he looks to be in great shape.

    Bowers passed his physical…sweet news.

  10. Capt.Tim Says:

    If we look out and see a defensive line that looks like 91-92-93-94, then things are sure looking good for the future. Would love to see those four playing together!!

  11. Mauha Deeb Says:

    @ Capt Tim haha Good one. I didn’t realize the numbers were lining up as such. It would be nice indeed to see Price back.

  12. Patrick Says:

    Moore should be getting the pink slip, not Stylez.

  13. K2theSoldier Says:

    Can’t wait to see Bowers in action, we landed a premier pass rusher in the 2nd round. Beautiful.

  14. McBuc Says:

    How do we know Styles did not give up or sell his number? I would think we would have heard, but you never know. Everything is speculation at this point.

  15. Capt.Tim Says:

    You think the young guys lined their numbers up like that on purpose? That would show a really sense of unity.

  16. Garv Says:

    ALL good baby, ALL GOOD!!!
    The Bucs are concentrating on signing our own and will benefit from it.

    The adventure continues so hop aboard!

  17. Oahubuc Says:

    We still need some serious depth at that position.

  18. mattmart01 Says:

    Lol the 91-92-93-94 is awesome! Just like 17-18-19 on offense!

  19. Mauha Deeb Says:

    @Capt Tim Well, those guys did go through college with those numbers so I suppose it is more of coincidence than a plan. Either way it is pretty awesome.

  20. Capt.Tim Says:

    I think they all had different numbers in school. The picture above shows Bowers with 93.

    Either way, it’s kinda cool!

  21. Superd Says:

    I think the numbers would line up more like 91-93-92-94 if they all play.

  22. BigMacAttack Says:

    I hope to see someone earn the #99 in the next couple of years, but only after back to back double digit sack years. Still probably won’t happen. Wish is one hand…..
