Losing Lights The Fire Of Lavonte David

September 3rd, 2019

Bucs rookie linebacker savior Devin White is a spiritual man.

For example, in the latest episode of In The Current, White explained that he believes God’s plan, via the knee injury of Lavonte David, was to test White’s ability to lead the Bucs as a rookie through training camp and preseason without the veteran presence of David. (Yes, David was with the team in street clothes).

White also shared a rather interesting question he asked David.

The No. 5 overall pick asked David if he wished he was drafted by another team since the Bucs have lost so many games. David, per White, replied that he wouldn’t change anything because all the losing keeps the fire lit inside him.

Frankly, this deep philosophical stuff hurts Joe’s head so early in the morning.

Thank goodness real football is just five days away. The full In The Current Episode is below. This particular one doesn’t represent the Bucs’ best work on the quality series.

    Well, thank goodness for losing!!! Will he lose the fire if they ever start winning?

    If there was a God Devin, I doubt he’d be hanging around Buc camp tweaking Davids knee so you could be tested. Maybe he should’ve prevented some of the mass shootings that keep happening, or maybe he could’ve steered this hurricane away from the Bahamas. Instead he was at Buc camp making sure you were being tested. I don’t know what’s sillier, believing in God, or thinking he’s testing football players careers?

    God bless you Hodad. Lighten up dude.

    These guys just can’t shut their mouths and play football.

    Show us on the field.

    LVD was part of the biggest loses in bucs history and everytime said the bucs didnt realize what was coming from the other team. LVD was on an all time great trajectory with schiano and ever since then it has been all down hill

    Hodad spitting straight facts

  7. teacherman777 Says:


    Youre a genius. I thought the same.

    Lets see how the “god loving christians” of America step up to help the Bahamas like they helped New Orleans, Haiti and Puerto Rico before.

    Oh wait….

    Hodad with the straight truth..some might not want to hear it but need to hear it..

  9. TNBucsFan Says:

    Hodad, the same things you use to claim there is no god are the same things that show this world makes no sense without God. If there is no god, then there is no evil. If we are merely chemicals interacting, then the acts you are concerned about aren’t truly wrong. But they are wrong because God is real. So watch out what you ask for. If God were to stop all evil, such as mass shootings, he would stop the evil each of us commits. Instead, God is carrying out his plan and permits evil to accomplish a greater good, even if we can’t always see what that is.

    Can we keep this about Football instead of religion?

  11. Usedtocould Says:

    Well, David should be burning hotter than the sun by now.

  12. Lamarcus Says:

    God doesn’t involve himself in worldly things. He is too good and holy- can’t associate with us evil worldly ppl. Besides. Ppl created guns so they should live with the problem. Hurricanes comes every year but we choose to live in it’s path. When do ppl become more accountable and stop blaming other entities like God? Why do ppl expect God clean only ppl messes?

    God doesn’t change the course or “force” things to happen. He is no puppet master. He is about free will to do whatever you want.

    There is a God and you aren’t it.

    If you believe Devin White is the byproduct of random lifeless particles banging together for billions of years until…SHAZAM…lightning struck a gob of goo somewhere, your level of intelligence is so sub-IQ there’s no help for you.

    God is very much a football fan.

    And He obviously has a great sense of humor b/c YOU exist.

    I love watching and reading about people playing Russian roulette with their souls.
    I guess I’m like L. David in that regard..
    My black brothers from the Deep South are all about hard work and Jesus man.
    Growing up in the south even from a young age I always felt like they were anointed and i still feel that way.
    I don’t expect people to get it that weren’t raised in the region .

    “I’m glad that losing stokes his competitive fire because after he’s done winning basement titles here with Cancer54 he’ll be burning brighter than the asteroid in Armageddon barreling toward earth! MOM! WHERE’S MY MEATLOAF!!!!”

  17. Harry in Costa Rica Says:

    Hodad, I feel sorry for you man.

  18. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Why do ignorant people and their ignorant hate rhetoric always highjack the comment section? Better yet, how do they even get an audience? So many attaboys for this intolerant imbecile. There are an abundance of Atheist for such a low IQ world.

  19. Rayjay1122 Says:

    I don’t get mad at people who do not believe in God. They actually are the minority. Most humans believe in a God albeit not the same God. However believing in God does not save ones soul. Faith in Christ Jesus is the only way. No, Christians are not perfect. There are people who sit in churches religiously who are not saved. Religion doesn’t save anyone. Faith alone in Christ alone leading to repentance and love. You can see how even God loving Christians struggle with an evil nature when we call other people idiots for their spiritual blindness. Also debating religious beliefs in this forum is kind of pointless.

    the mentally weak co captain of some of the worst defensive units the nfl has ever witnessed needs to load up that other career loser dotson into his mini van and drive out of town…. It won’t take Bowels long to realize what a huge liability it is to have such a mentally weak leader on his defense… cancer93 taught lvd how to quit and give up very well…

    bowels keep this bum off the field in the 4th if you want to protect a lead…

  21. Jean Lafitte Says:

    ^^^^ *MORON ALERT*

  22. tmaxcon Says:

    Jean Lafitte

    truth hurts your feelings but actual on field results can not be rewritten pal…..

  23. SteelStudBuc Says:

    Haha Jean Pierre Lafitte with your eye patch… I’ll see u at wrestlemania…. stop crying… he is a good bucs representative though I’ll give ya credit for the handle… stop crying k boo boo

  24. tmaxcon Says:

    god clearly does not listen to buc players nobody overplayed the god card like dungy the clown and cancer93 and those bums never won a damn thing that mattered in tampa…. dungy the clown maybe the biggest hypocrite on god’s green earth and he ended up with a career losing record in the post season so god maybe a football fan but it’s clear that he hates him some tampa bay buccaners….

    “Chuck me into shallow water, before I get too deep!” Hunh, Joe?

    A little bit of the bizarreness in the article leads to really BIZARRE responses here.

  26. Bucsfanman Says:

    If losing “keeps the fire lit” I’m not sure how one could tell. LVD’s play has been anything but “inspiring”.
    Believe in whatever you want to believe in. The fact is that YOU have to put in the work. Thank yourself first.

    All over the WORLD…ya know EARTH… not just America.. BILLIONS of people believe in some form of God. Buddha, Alllah, Jesus, etc…. You choose not to believe.

    I choose the majority. It’s literally why I believe.

    Thanks for criticizing BILLIONS of people, but you’re wrong and they’re right.

  28. unbelievable Says:

    With all the losing, I imagine that fire is now a burning inferno.

    How big does the blaze need to get before it turns into some wins?

  29. Echase Says:

    With licht our GM we are going to keep losing too.

  30. Jason S. Mclaurin Says:

    I disagree with you tmaxcon on LVD. I think the guy has serious dog in him and just needed the cancer93 off the team so he can do his thing. This is LVD defense now and I think he’s a more down to earth and in tune type of individual rather than the non chelant Gerald McCoy was. He and JPP will play large together and prove guys like McCoy who don’t have pride for the area should never be brought here.
