No Intensity Change For Lavonte David

September 3rd, 2013

If Lavonte David cranks out another nine seasons like the one he turned in last year, the Bucs linebacker will be talked about in the same breath as Derrick Brooks. David was that good.

What’s interesting in the Monday locker room interview of David below is David explaining that his intensity level preparing for a regular season game is the same as in preseason. But then David goes on to talk about how his teammates have upped their intensity now that the Bucs are in real-game mode. Most great players operate the way David does.

Hopefully, the Bucs collectively will be able to flick the proverbial switch. (Listen to all of David’s comments below, via WDAE-AM 620.)

    You’re telling me these guys don’t try as hard in the preseason?

  5. tmaxcon Says:

    if LVD stays healthy we have a legit star for years to come. love this guy.

  6. Adam L. Says:

    Not to piss on your parade TMAXCON, we could have said that about ALOT of guys. I’m just wary of one-hit/season wonders after Michael Clayton.

  7. SteveK Says:

    Rinse. Lather. Repeat. That is all #54 needs to do. This guy is a Bauce!

  8. Jacko101 Says:

    Lol @bauce I like that. LVD is solid and hopefully can be as good or better than last season

  9. ATLBucsFan Says:

    Love this guy. Stay healthy young man. Take advantage of this opportunity. It only comes once.

  10. Biff Barker Says:

    I think the locker room really comes together after the roster is set. It’s hard to gel as a team when you know 37 aren’t going into the season as a Buc.
    The cuts must be hard to watch for the starters and situational players too.

  11. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Fowlclowns just signed Jeremy Trueblood

  12. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    LVD is like a dog on a bone….and the first dog to get there….I wish we could clone him and hope his play rubs off on others.
    I’d like to think that we just added to “dog on bone” players in Revis & Goldson.
    I’m hoping Foster & Watson come down with LVD…..

  13. Buc1987 Says:

    LOOK! I’m FINALLY not worried about this defense like I was all of last year. So for me personally that is a good sign. I seriously think the Bucs are going prove to us Buc fans this year that they are for real. I know pre-season has people a little worried. What if there was no preseason? What if fans never got a glimpse of some of the play that we’ve witnessed in preseason? On paper would you be pretty pumped up for the season? I know I was prior to preseason. That’s why I’m going to crinkle up the preseason games roll them into a ball and throw them in the trash can where they belong. The defense is going to be stout. If the offense matches what they did last season, our team is playoff bound. Like I said before sit back and fasten your seat belts, because this team is ready to take off.

  14. Bucs34 Says:

    He is my favorite Buc, although I am really pulling for Spence to do something like LD did last year as well!

  15. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @ Buc !987

    You know I agree with you…No question on paper we are a better team….we now have an outstanding player at every position except perhaps QB & TE (both offense)
    On Defense….GMC,LVD,Revis & Goldson

    On Offense Nicks/Joseph Jackson & Martin

    It can also be argued that we have some depth…after all Cody Wallace & Najee Goode were taken by other teams…..

    That’s on paper…..we have to prove it on the field…and I think we will.

    If that happens, the naysayers will slowly dissappear…unles of course you are a impotent cross-dresser from New Orleans like BucFansSuck.

  16. RBellBuc Says:

    Except for that NOLA dudes reference to the movie “Deliverance” and his certain colored genatalia, I thought he was rather funny.

    He brought everyone together for a brief moment it was almost sickening ! lol

  17. RBellBuc Says:

    5 Days to Go!!!!!

  18. Tampabaybucfan Says:


    A real love fest….you had to be there to experience…it may be a once in a lifetime event….all those on JBF were united in their absolute contempt for this flamer.
    Where are you BucFansSucK?….we need you to unite us again!!!

  19. Raphael Says:

    Lavonte will be in beast mode as will Foster …

    OT …falcons signed Trueblood …LOL !

  20. Buc1987 Says:

    I’m not a fantasy football geek, but for what it’s worth I’ll mention this. The NFL Network fantasy geeks said to take the Bucs D and start them this week.

  21. Raphael Says:

    @ 1987 …ya think ? Lol. The Jets have just signed Brady Quinn… If not for the Jets vaunted defense the game could get ugly. I spect they will throw every blitz in the book at Free.

  22. Buc1987 Says:

    Now I said I’m not a fantasy football geek. A geek in general that’s a whole another story.

  23. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    A new disease…….LVD… creates violent behavior toward anyone carrying pigskin. Or in BucFansSuck’s case….violent behavior toward anyone wearing pink pigskin pumps!!!
