Lavonte David Happy To Be Cold

November 24th, 2015

DavidJoe was in chilly Philly on Sunday, where fan rage flowed at the home team in the second quarter.

After halftime, the Bucs’ defense dealt with a different challenge.

The Tampa Bay offense came out of the halftime break and executed a sloppy but very effective 10-minute touchdown drive, a real backbreaker for Philadelphia, but a little tough on the Bucs’ defense.

The defense, after coming through the tunnel following a 12-minute break, had to wait out a whopping 22 snaps, too many of them penalties.

Speaking on the Buccaneers Radio Network last night, Lavonte David said his unit was forced into stretching exercises to stay loose — and to overcome the temperature.

“We had to get ourselves warm,”  David said. “I found myself pacing up and down the sidelines, then getting up and down from the benches.”

David went on to say it probably was the longest drive he’s experienced, but he’ll take the rest anytime, especially against a rapid-fire offense like Philly’s.

    Defense should love having challenges like that……heck, just drink a shot of Tabasco if you want to warm up quickly

    The defense also had the halftime break before the long drive….like a pitcher after a very long inning from his team’s time at bat…..too much rest can affect you…..rather have that than being overworked.

    Has there been ANY explanation by the NFL on the blown call on the double fumble at beginning of the game???? Still in disbelief Philly ended up with the ball after a five minute review.

    Just be sure to read the label and look for banned substances!

    You are not suppose to rain down boos when your team is stinking up the joint. Take it like a real fan. I thought there was an ebola patient in the stands the way it emptied out so fast.
