“It Stuck In My Head Forever”

June 17th, 2021

Devin White

Buccaneers savior linebacker Devin White no doubt wins the award for most emotional teammate.

White lets it all hang out just about wherever he his. Just ask his teammates.

So it’s no surprise that White delivered a revealing moment on In The Current, the Hard Knocks-style series produced in-house by the Buccaneers’ A-list video team for Buccaneers.com.

Fans know all about the moment Christian McCaffrey was captured by NFL Films in Week 2 last season telling White he’s the best in the game. But White provided more depth to what that meant to him.

In 2019, McCaffrey stiff-armed White in England en route to the end zone, and the proliferation of that highlight across various media drove White crazy, he explained.

“I mean it’s kind of personal, and that was the first time it ever happened to me, ” White said on In The Current.  … It just gave me a different hunger when I played him because it’s like, ‘I gotta get you back.'”

That chance finally came in Week 2 of 2020 — and late in the game McCaffrey told White, “You’re the best in the league, you know that?”

Great reveal by White, a great look inside his fire.

Joe had to laugh when White referenced the highlight of the stiff-arm. It would have been shown a lot more often if Jameis Winston didn’t throw six picks in that game, which was a popular eye-opener for the media.

    I forget what the story is about. The memory of those 6 picks creates too much anger within to think clearly.

    Devin White brings to mind Charles Haley with five Super Bowi rings. He was a great linebacker/edge but his robust personality got him in trouble with the Niners and he was traded to The Cowboys and was the same guy there. I doubt Devin is that type of a stinging personality and he seems to be as good as Haley after 3 years in.

    I love this kid. I do agree that sometimes I worry about all the talking he does. He has always been like this, and many of the greats have that kind of wiring. Hard to compare his game to others because of his ridiculous closing speed. Not sure he will have many holes in his game if hes worried about being stiff armed. Does this guy get better in year 3? What does that even look like?

    Keep talking, please! Whatever it takes to keep you motivated keep doing it.
    Fear of embarrassment and failure are great motivators.

    Sky’s the limit for this young man! Next great Buc player developing before our eyes!

    Now that Jameis is gone he wins…

  6. Cobraboy Says:

    6 ints?

    Just another day at the office for ATM…

  7. Bellingham Bucs Fan Says:

    I had literally blocked that game out of my mind. Even having no idea who his replacement would be, watching Jameis get the boot was a wonderful experience as a fan.

    So refreshing reading a non moniker laced article from a normal JOE… beta joey needs to get a job at MSDNC🤣⚡👊🏻 💥

    Now the media is back hyping Winston to do amazing in New Orleans, I can not wait for interceptions to start flowing.

  10. Buczilla Says:

    Awesome story. I’m also thinking that at least one of our corners will have a career year for picks since we play Jameis twice. No way that gadget dude for the saints wins the job.

  11. SB Says:

    6 Picks in one game?
    Musta been the WRs fault. Or the wind. Or bad blocking. Or bad coaching. Or the Defense.

  12. Señor Harry in Costa Rica Says:

    “6 picks…” that sent chills thru my body. Still reliving the nightmare that was JW.

  13. German Buc Says:

    I’ve been to the London game. Jameis had ‘only’ 5 picks — and a fumble lost. INTs 4 and 5 actually were the coaches fault. After INT #3 no way JW should have been allowed to throw footballs any longer that day.

  14. TSmitty3000 Says:

    Crazy most of the comments so far are about Jameis throwing 5 picks…not about what makes Devin White tick. If I remember correctly, White was still working his way back from injury correct? Kid is a baller and he hasn’t scratched the surface yet.
