“Three-In-A-Row Great Too, Men”

December 2nd, 2019

A little postgame locker room intensity never gets old.

What makes this taste of it interesting is that it provides a glimpse of rookie savior linebacker Devin White exerting leadership among his teammates at a time usually reserved for established team leaders.

The official Buccaneers video below was shot immediately following yesterday’s drubbing of the Jaguars in Jacksonville.

It’s unclear whether the whole team is involved here, but it appears to be. Keep in mind NFL locker rooms for visiting teams are far smaller — almost too small — than the home team’s space. So there’s really no room for an entire team to gather around in most stadiums.

White’s words are ringing in Joe’s head after the Bucs won their second straight. “Three-in-a-row great too, men.”

White also explained on the Buccaneers Radio Network after the game that the defense’s resurgence is part of a greater mentality. “It’s just been a mindset, how you want to be remembered.”

    Might this be the the 2019 version of the 1997 Chargers game?

  2. pick6 Says:

    the ’97 chargers were a respected playoff team with pedigree who were big favorites, the jags are…not. had the bucs pulled out the win in Seattle that would’ve been a better comparison. still, part of the problem is that owners and fans are looking to recreate old magic. this is a new team, built unlike any prior bucs playoff team, and their path to a championship window (if they ever get there) will be quite different.

    We all thought the Rams victory was the “culture change” game. Hopefully this one is this time.

    So where are all the guys that had him labeled a draft pick bust?…crickets.

  5. doctor_berto Says:

    I don’t think people were calling him a bust, just a huge reach for mlb at number 5 overall. He was playing extremely poor the first few games. Thankfully he has turned it around.

  6. SCBucsFan Says:

    doctor berto I would love the same people judging him after 5 games to try to break into the NFL with a hurt leg and tonsillitis

  7. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    This team is definitely not playing for a draft pick…….thank goodness!!!

    Can you imagine Joe in the locker room asking the coach and players….

    “So, you are out of the playoffs, don’t you think its time to lose some games so you’ll have a better pick?”

    Losing culture is not simply players, coaches & owners….its fans and media also.

  8. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    You know it was genuinely amazing how many people labeled him a draft bust. I wanted Allen more but even I didn’t call him a bust. As of the game yesterday Devin seems to be the right pick.

  9. doctor_berto Says:

    At this point it seems like both White and Allen will be around for a long time

    Bucs are set at mlb. DT. Secondary. Oline is intact for acouple years under contract. Can you upgrade positions yes. Question mark is qb. RT. Rb. DE. Or olb.
    It will be a a make it or break it offseason.

  11. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Adrnagy – QB decision has been made for 2020. The only question during the offseason is whether JW get’s the franchise tag or a multi year deal. Btw, no, the team does not need to waste a valuable pick in the 2nd or 3rd round hoping that he is the next Dak Prescott. RT is certainly a need. OLB edge is a need as JPP can’t play forever. We need one for depth and eventually a replacement for JPP. I would focus on the trenches and possibly a RB if the right one is out there. Maybe the QB position will be up in the air in 2021 (I doubt it) and if it is that would be the time to look to the draft for a QB. All I know is I don’t want to be in a position where I have to choose between a Nick Foles type or a Mitch Trubisky type. Neither is a good option.

    Close but it was the Atlanta game. Felt the same as that Chargers game. A corner has been turned!

    I said that Josh Allen was the correct pick. I said that they may have selected the wrong Devin. Maybe, I spoke too soon.

    Devin White is starting to show flashes of brilliance but we’re not measuring him for his gold jacket just yet. Yesterday’s game was the 1st time his defensive prowess translated to a victory.

    More surprisingly the young cornerbacks are showing some rays of light.

    I thought JPP was washed up and through, I’m certainly wrong about that.

    Tasting some rare victories is certainly worth eating a little crow and I’ll take that punishment gladly.

    We are all Buc fans, otherwise we wouldn’t be here every day, season after season.

  14. MTM Says:

    White is very reminiscent of 55. The dude just makes play after play. The defense will only get better. Now if they can bring in a good to great QB they will improve and make the playoffs.

  15. ElioT Says:

    I’m happy they’re winning games.

    Playing for the draft is a LOSER’S game.

    With that said, they still have a long, long way to go.

    This team could just as easily go full “dumpster fire” and crap the bed this Sunday and have everyone wanting to clean house again.

    We’ve seen it time and time again.

    Love the Bucs but my 28 years of experience forces me to reserve judgement.

  16. Cobraboy Says:

    I am concerned Dean is a fragile player. He seems to get dinged up a lot. But when he plays, he has brilliant moments.

    Any news on his shoulder?

  17. View from 132 Says:

    Uh… Fan since 76 and Digg… you both mean the 1996 Chargers game.

  18. teacherman777 Says:

    I called Devin out.

    Happy he got the message.

    I doubted his short stumpy arms.

    But I was just trying to piss him off.

    Happy it worked.

    Go Bucs!

  19. Clean House Says:

    Cut him some slack, the dude’s horse died, tonsillitis, and a sprained knee, plus learning how to run a supposedly complex defense as a rook.

    Dude just had to get healthy!
