Kwon Sets Extreme Goal

February 12th, 2016

kwon alexander 1001Gerald McCoy is talking MVP for America’s Quarterback.

Kwon Alexander seems to have the same thing in mind — for himself.

The Bucs’ 21-year-old ferocious linebacker, who had his season cut four games short by the NFL, courtesy of the wrong energy drink (allegedly), is not satisfied with a comfortable role alongside Lavonte David.

Alexander told Ronnie & TKras that his offseason will be a brutal affair.

“Man, I’m going to be grinding so hard,” Alexander said on WDAE-AM 620. “I’m going to be grinding harder than I ever have. Because, you know, I gotta come back strong.

“I’m trying to be one of the best players in this league. So what I’m trying to do and what I’m trying to accomplish, I gotta grind for it.”

Joe likes the extremely lofty goals, especially for an undersized linebacker with little experience. The Bucs need so much more of that attitude.

Joe hopes Alexander stays glued to David as much as possible during the offseason. Clearly, David keeps his body in great shape and has proven durable. David knows how to train.

And perhaps Alexander’s mental toughness (outside of picking energy drinks) might be a good thing to rub off on David, who has had his share of mental meltdowns.

    David’s mental meltdown still baffles me!?!?!?!

    We need more KA’s and JW’s. More of these two personalities and we will have a dynasty in Tampa, Florida!!!!

    Fire and Wood Baby!

    Maybe Jameis will teach David to be a Lion…

    Actually, the suspension could turn out to be a positive!!! Because of the 4 game suspension lovie only had 12 games to coach his passive system!!!

  4. Bucsblud Says:

    The shots at Lovie, especially when the article is not about him, are starting to get pretty dumb.

  5. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    You would hope the suspension would serve two purposes……a warning and deterrent to the behavior and motivation to play even better….

    It can’t really be proven….but the absence of both Kwon & Vjax could have doomed Lovie.

  6. The Buc Realist Says:


    It was year 1 that doomed him!!!!

  7. LargoSamIM Says:

    I agree Joe(s) — ya gotta love his attitude ! Let’s just hope he doesn’t live up to his college game tapes —- ALWAYS OUT OF POSITION

    Those 2 can push each other and really commit to being dominant players.

    I think most players put in a lot of work and try to get better every year. But not a lot of people put in the type of work that Jj Watt and Antonio Brown put in. I hope kwon isnt just blowing smoke. I expect big things from him and I can’t wait to see it on the field.

    I love watching “hard knocks” it gives a more personal view of players and how they work. You see guys like JJ watt working all day every day. He was already the best player in the league. He could have just coasted at the level he already was. But he didnt sit on that, he continues to work hard every day. in the show he was the last guy there, always doing something. Catching balls, running and conditioning, etc. It was awesome to see his approach. On the flip side you had a guy like Vince Wilfork, who is an amazing player, but doesnt put in the work to be the best. He is content being the player he already is. Which is fine. But you need a few people your team like Watt that wNt to truly be the best, and has the natural talent to reach that goal. Some have the talent to the best but don’t tap into it. Just coast and do enough to get paid.

    One day I would love for the Bucs to be on the show…just not until we’ve established a proper change in culture and operation.

    Lovie deserves every shot that is fired across his bow sir… He is / was by far the must embarrassing coach in buccaneers history. His team quit on him the last 4 games and those blow out’s he coached and the blowing of leads were some of the most embarrassing moments in nfl history not just bucs history. Fans have a right to be angry… Maybe if Lovie took some responsibility for those loses people would be more forgiven but Lovie never once took responsibility for anything. That staff he put together was a joke and he deserves crap for that as well. Lovie is a total failure and loser. He deserves every last shot he receives.

    Kwon will be a best…

    We have Jameis and Kwon to lead the culture change on both sides of the ball. And a new regime is a breath of fresh air, and the fact that it’s Dirk, allowing our offense to build off of last year, is great. I feel that our Buc’s are finally trending up.
    Now if only we could get our old uniforms back…

  12. gotbbucs Says:

    This is exactly the type of attitude that won us a Lombardi long ago. I hope it rubs off on some of these guys that have become satisfied with just going out and “having fun”.

    It’s a job, and everybody from the bottom to the top needs to get on the same page in order for the company to be the best. Alexander, Winston, and Marpet could be the trio that opens the flood gates in Tampa Bay and turns things back around.

    Get it Kwon!

  14. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I hope the attitude in Kwon and Jameis is contagious.

    The person who mentioned Dynasty in Tampa is on BATHHH SALTZZ

  16. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Agree with everything LargoBuc said..

    The new hunger to win is very contagious…I love everything about Kwon…they lost that last four games, no Kwon was NOT a coincidence…this man is part of the Super Glue that will hold this team together to big wins..

    Can’t I just go into a coma till the season begins!!?? lol…why do I feel more than ever that this is the year where we will see the unleashing of our super beasts!

    GO BUCS!!!
    Go Kwon!! We love ya!! My son Alex has your appropriate! lol

    No you CAN’T and stay right here. The best Buc site on the net.

    It’s the off-season I know. It sucks, but this is where the cools kids hang.
    I consider you one of them.

    Just raise that son of yours right. Raise him to be a Bucs fan.

  18. Buc1987 Says:

    Nice Joe…now I’m typing in slurrr.

    cools kid? lmao

    @tmaxcon: The team that LOVIE inherited wasn’t even the worst in Buc history, I believe Coach TOES ON THE LINE completely destroyed this team mentally, he was the main reason FREEMAN lost all confidence in himself, I’ll say the guy was a Jack-Ass, everyone seems to forget THE BACK STABBER has been GM for as long as LOVIE has been coach but he doesn’t seem to bear any of the criticism for those two losing seasons THE BACK STABBING CONSPIRACY RUNS DEEP!!!

    U gotta love what Kwons brings to this team, the leadership and most importantly the attitude that this team sorely lacks. If we can change the mentality of this team and bring in more “gritt” and dawg it would go a long way. I’m so sick of being pushed around and labeled “soft” we have to change that. Love GMC But I think he would be a be terr player if he played with a mean streak. Back to kwo tho, I think we have one of the better LB duos forming in the NFL, LD54 and KA58 are no joke, if we could add another great LB to complete the duo then look out!!!

  21. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    @ Buc1987

    Yes sir you are right!! This is the coolest place to hang out indeed…
    Things to look forward in the off season..the combines, the free agency..the draft…and of course…the signing of Mario Williams and JPP!!..:)

  22. Buc1987 Says:

    LifeOfABucFan….lesson for today.

    I’m always right. Even when I might be wrong. lol
