Whitewash: Historic Game For Devin White

January 18th, 2021

Smile says it all.

You think Bucs inside linebacker Devin White had a huge game last night? You would be right. One of the best this century.

White, in his first game back from the Reserved/COVID list after missing two games, made his NFL postseason debut and he killed it.

White was everywhere. He tackled. He scooped up a fumble. He picked off a pass from a Hall of Famer.

In fact, the type of game White had last was the reason why the Bucs selected him No. 5 overall in the draft in 2019.

And no, your eyes were not deceiving you. White had such a huge game, it was one of the four best by a defensive player in the 21st century, notes Andrew Holman of the Bucs’ media relations staff.

When you think of the kickarse defenders who have played in the playoffs the past 20 years, what White did is almost mind-blowing.

His pick of Drew Brees that likely sealed the win may not go down in Bucs history with Rondé Barber’s pick-six to “Shut down the Vet” in the 2002 NFC title game, but it was close.

    I wonder if LVD was talking to JW or AK when he said, I WANT YOU….LOL…

    He seems to be making strides in pass coverage. Sometimes i wonder if his bulky frame restricts him from being as fluid as David. Lots of upside remains untapped.

    Well done. Great game!

  5. Buc1987 Says:

    Ronde’s pick took us to the SB…so nope it’s not close.

    Similar in that it sealed the game….but Ronde’s pick always brings a smile (to this day)to my face whenever I think about it.

    Go Bucs!!! Go White!!!

    Dude has great hands. He just needs to be more aware of the routes being run and the receivers in the area and he will be great in coverage.

  7. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    Joe I’m glad you came around to White. I know you wanted Allen but White was drafted to do what he did yesterday – negate Kamara. Was beautiful to watch.

  8. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    To see him defend a pass was beautiful, and then when he went beast mode on the guy trying to tackle him was priceless! Dude looked so shocked that he shoved him out of the way so violently I laughed real hard! No rust on him. If they play like that next week, a very good chance will be a repeat of the game earlier in the season which every Bucs fan would love to see after they sent Drew Brees into a painful retirement!

    Thanks for giving Devin White the credit he’s due…….this kid is young….barring injury, he may become one of the greatest Bucs ever…..

  10. Winny Testaverde ( formerly Jonathan Limpchimpi ) Says:

    Don’t forget he knocked the dangerous Deonte Harris out during his one catch
    ( for -1 yard )…the dude was killing them on punt returns.

  11. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Did anyone else see SMB’s presser?…….At the end, he said “I must be doing something right….you’ve called me up here 3 weeks in a row”….I hope to be here next week”

    Also said that Michael Thomas was taunting…..talking trash…..during warmups….motivated Bucs to shut him down & shut him up!!!

    “Possibly the best defensive player in the NFL right now

    Maybe even better than Jacksonville Josh Allen”

    After this game! We didn’t take Devin to high! No 5 pick is spot on!

  14. Defense Rules Says:

    Kobe … You just couldn’t help yourself with that Josh Allen needle, could you.

    Luckily Joe has a short memory. Ya right, we’ll go with that.

  15. Anonymous Says:

    But but but but but but but Josh Allen!
    That narrative needs to be so over that it’s dead! We made the best possible pick for our team with that draft choice. Conversation over! This man is a beast and an absolute difference maker. Sad all the trolls are gone because they all deserve what they should be getting with everything happening right now. From the America’s nut huggers all the way down to the GM is an idiot haters. They all deserve the bashing that goes their way, but they’re all cowards and of course proved their troll hood by disappearing when their BS mouth running catches up with their ignorance. Bye bye and R.I.P. Troll max, Npuppy, Lamarcus, Realist and their followers who tried to copycat their the ignorance that spewed from their stupidity!

  16. bucfanforever Says:

    And to think he might be a bit rusty after 2 games he was forced out.

    Good chance he’ll be even better next week in the cold.

  17. '79 Defense Says:

    Man, he was fired up and hilarious in hs post game press conference. One quote was “.. Even through I’m from Louisiana, it’s forever ‘Go Bucs’ ”

    Love having guys like him on our side.

  18. SmoothBayRider Says:

    @Anonymous Preach brotha !!!!!! I’ve been wondering where all the trolls went . Hopefully @Joe can point ya in the right direction and give us some subtle clues about their new usernames .

  19. Leighroy Says:

    Devin seemed to turn it on once he caught a bloody lip in the 1st quarter. That literal taste of blood set him off!

  20. Colonel Angus Says:

    Rondes game vs the Eagles should be on that list of dominating playoff individual efforts: 6 tackles, 4 pass defended, a strip sack and off course a 92yd game clinching pick 6. White was a beast last night, that time off may have been a blessing. He might have shot his wad vs Washington.

  21. AJ Says:

    And who was it again that was telling me he wasn’t worth the 5th pick in a draft?? There are only so many Butkus’, Singletary’s, Lewis’, Lambert’s types that come around in a generation. When you have a chance at a stud Middle Linebacker that can change the paradigm for a decade. The 5th pick is a small price to pay. Keep rising up that ladder Devin!

  22. unbelievable Says:

    Watching SMB and White each toss New Orleans players after their turnovers was a thing of beauty!

  23. Geoelle Says:

    Didn’t Me. Derrick Brooks have a similar game in SB XXXVII?

  24. teacherman777 Says:

    The Saints bullied us the first 2 games.

    We came out like gangsters this time!

    Jensen and White set the tone!!

    Buc em up!!!
