Lavonte David Earns NFC Defensive Player Of The Week

November 25th, 2015

LavonteDavidLavonte David has answered the bell in the second half of this season.

David struggled in the first half, highlighted by many missed tackles, a key dropped interception, and a severe dropoff in play from previous seasons.

But David has put two strong games in a row on film. Two weeks ago, Lovie Smith said David was in perfect position on every single defensive play. On Sunday, he was a catalyst against the Eagles with more solid play and two interceptions.

David won the NFC Defensive Player of the Week award today. Go get it again Sunday, Lavonte.

    Never doubted him, young players go through slumps sometimes. But David is not th type to let that keep him down, he never doubted his abilities.

    Great! We should have three or four awards this week with Winston up for Rookie of the Week and FEDEX Air Player of the Week, along with Doug Martin up for FEDEX Ground Player of the Week.

    Keep piling up the recognition – it feels good!

    the popular narrative may be that LD “got his head straight”, but there is a marked difference in how the bucs have used him of late. he was fighting his instincts when 90% of his assignments were “hold your position and let the play come to you”. when they make the defense worry about him attacking the line of scrimmage more often like he did to establish himself as the league’s best 4-3 OLB, it plays to his passion and makes him harder for the offense to scheme out of the play. i love seeing him bluff the blitz and drop back almost as much as i see him blowing up plays behind the LOS

    Lavonte David and Gerald McCoy–2 class players who helped me keep the faith during the latest round of double-digit losing seasons. Bucs have set just about every NFL record in the multiverse when it comes to losing. LOL. Kudos, LD. You deserve it.
