“I Want A Bigger Bowl”

December 30th, 2020

Joe loves getting a peek inside our beloved Buccaneers’ locker room.

This time, the look is provided by starting safety Jordan Whitehead, speaking to a national audience on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

Whitehead was asked about Lavonte David and Devin White getting jilted for the Pro Bowl and what the reaction was like among Bucs players.

Whitehead said the topic died in a hurry; guys came up to White and David to say they should have made it and the conversation was shut down by both guys. The first thing I know Devin said was, “I don’t care about the Pro Bowl. I want a bigger bowl,” Whitehead said.

End of story, per the Bucs’ safety. Nobody talked about it again and it’s not some sort of motivating force.

However, Whitehead did say that he personally is extra focused to win in the playoffs because he wants it so badly, a guy he painted as the ultimate role model and leader.

    I like his response.

    Go get it young man! Take us to the promised land.

    Dont play 10 yards of the line and behind the sticks…play aggressive and cover your man. Stop playing scared. Coaches need to have more trust in these players on defense, and be more creative on offense.

    How many pro bowls did Brady and Gronk play in? Answer -0- . Focus on the bigger picture and right now it’s Atlanta.

    Any pro football player worth their salt would want the Super Bowl over the Pro Bowl. I would hope that’s 96% or greater.

    Good! Great. Grand… obviously. You would think, but the playoff drought of the last decade + has made statements like these, oddly refreshing. At least professionalism is back in the locker room.

    All the various respects and accolades will come if this team goes deep and earns that other Bowl. So all there is for them to go out there and get it.

    Ugh. The Pro Bowl votes have become soo much of a I don’t give a f#ck. An awesome reward system would be cool, though. Top ten rated players for every position at the end of the regular season. Players and coaches vote the best from 1-10. Media has become a title wave over fan vote.

    Whitehead deserves more credit than he gets on here. His response to the stupid question is a good one. LVD is highly respected by all the young dudes (and the old farts) on defense. The Pro Bowl has been a joke for years. More important is 11-5 after Sunday’s game. And BTW, Arians and M12, can we advance to the second round of the playoffs? We have the talent. Go Mighty 11-5 Bucs!!

    We are gonna see a team possessed in the Playoffs.
    I just honestly hope it’s not Dallas, even though I live here.

    That offense scares me when Dalton is on.
    I also hope we somehow play Seattle 2nd.

    Have a feeling we will have to beat NO to win it all.
