“That’s One Of Them Low Blows You Gotta Pull Out”

October 22nd, 2021

Buccaneers savior linebacker Devin White does more than just watch film to prepare for a football game.

White takes great pride in his trash talking. And while that isn’t helping him get a tackle for loss, a sack or a forced fumble this season, it’s not for a lack of trying.

White told the All Things Covered podcast recently that he is the top trash talker on the Buccaneers and he goes the extra mile to get in an opponent’s head. In fact, White said he will study the names of players’ wives on social media so he can bust out first names in the heat of battle.

“That’s one of them low blows you gotta pull out,” White said.

Judging the reaction of co-hosts Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden, that’s not the norm in the NFL.

That makes sense. It’s one thing to tell a guy his mama is ugly, it’s another thing to use her name.

White added that he gets a share of trash talk thrown back at him, noting former Saints and current Bills receiver Emmanuel Sanders is one of the best in the game. And the Bucs’ Super Bowl linebacker said he’s gotten his share of horse-related smack fired his way this season.

Joe supposes that’s what happens gallop around the Super Bowl field holding the Lombardi Trophy.

    I wish he were running up his own numbers instead of running his mouth.
    Bowles explanation yesterday didn’t convince anyone White was having a breakout season.
    He’s not.

    Yes that would be tough to hear Devin White claiming that his horse, Ricky Bobby, would have his way in the rear with the opponent’s wife (using her first name)

    I would imagine that would gin up some feelings.

    Horse-related smack must be like: β€œhey Devin, Daisy-May got a long *ss mouth!”

    Prefer the other approach myself. Let your play do the talking.

    A regrettable part of the game. Wouldn’t really take pride in it.

    “Open mouth, insert foot” I’m very familiar with this move.

    Be careful #45, some WR’s thrive off of that. Steve Smith comes to mind. That dude transformed into a different person as soon as someone started talking trash.
    Then again, Steve Smith wasn’t your typical WR either.

  8. Mike Says:

    Trash talk is all good as long as you are backing it up with your play on the field. You better believe that Brooks, Sapp and others were talking trash all the time, but they could back it up week in and week out.
