“Vita Is A Freakin’ Bulldozer With Feet”

October 7th, 2021

Vita Vea bearing down

Everyone one paying attention knows Vita Vea is a true manbeast and stronger than nearly every offensive lineman he faces. And he has quickness.

If only the Bucs would be willing to play the guy 3 out of every 4 snaps!

Vea is more of a part-timer, unfortunately and inexplicably.

Many have tried and failed to describe the 6-4, 355-pound monster that mans nose tackle for the Bucs. But  Joe thought veteran Bucs defensive tackle Will Gholston jumped to the top of the list with his description of Vea.

It came during his appearance this week on Salty Dogs, an official team show. Gholston dropped major love on rookie edge rusher Joe Tryon-Shoyinka and Vea.

“I can’t praise both of them enough, “Gholston begain “Joe is a very slippery rusher as you can see watching film. And Vita is a freakin’ bulldozer with feet. You know, it’s hard to stop that man when he’s moving, and generally speaking it’s hard to stop him. So both of those guys have the potential to be top tier in the league if not No. 1 at their positions.”

It’s too bad the football gods never lined up Vea against All-Pro guard Carl Nicks (6-5, 350 pounds), the former Buccaneer whose career was cut short by MRSA (the Bucs plague of the Greg Schiano era). That would have been a sight to see.

Nicks was a human armoire and Joe’s going to steal Gholston’s line. Vea really is a bulldozer with feet.

    My money will be on Carl Nicks in his prime. Some coach said the league is not good on olinemen of today and why we needed to overpay for Dsmith. So Vea has manhandling undrafted talent at lineman while he hasn’t done that to all pro guard like Nelson….. Vea is good but he needs some technique because then it becomes like GMC …one move then nothing else afterwards and you guess it….No Pass Rush. Just style points

    Thats why I lobbied so much for us to draft him. I missed on Tryon, completely missed but he’s turning into a nice surprise…

    And since Im still saying CB with our 1st pick next year, and we’re picking last again in the 1st round…Alontae Taylor is getting my attention when i have time to scout….go watch his film.

    I still want to see more fullback plays from him.
    Instead of beastmode it’s bulldozing time!

  4. Chrizzzbucfan Says:

    Before we drafted Via I was hoping for a RB, but I love this guy. STEAMROLLER…

  5. MadMax Says:

    ^^ And thats the thing, the times ive seen them use him, he’s blocking….but he’s so fast he blows through and the play is still occurring behind him…just give him the ball…no more blocking-give him the dmn ball!!

    Vita also has a TD catch against Atl.

    He is a walking and running Tsunami.

    Vita > Carl Nix.

    GO BUCS!!!!

    Vita is just so much fun to watch and seeing him just truck other talented big dudes is a freaking treat every time we play.

    Anyone watching this game that is on…

    Couple of observations… D-Jax is still fast. After he caught that deep ball, he was running and the other players seemed to have the angle yet they just couldn’t there. That is some insane speed. D-Jax however did run out of gas, but I’ll be interested to see the Nexgen stats on that and how fast he got up to at the end.

    Also it looks like Wilson just broke a finger. I did that catching a ball and it friggin hurts – well it hurt more when you grab it and try to reset it, that part hurt. No idea how he can grip a ball considering he already has small hands. I’m sure he’ll do it, but against a very good defense he might be in trouble.

    Did you really say Vita needs to work on his technique? The best run defense the past two years and running.

  13. webster Says:

    Lamarcus vita and gmc are two totally different players. Vita caves an offensive line while allowing our edge rushers to clean up the scrappes. He literally took out 2 lineman which allowed tryon to have a clean free sack which tryon gave vita all the credit for. He is so much diffrent than mccoy. Trying to judge vita as a donald type of player means you totally missed his significance.

  14. Drunkinybor Says:

    I couldn’t believe the Saints let Carl walk, and yes seeing Vita Vs. Nick’s. Would be awesome.

  15. adam from ny Says:

    gholston really nailed it on that one…


  16. Jim Says:

    Vita is featured in today’s New York Times…

  17. Hodad Says:

    I’m waiting for Vea to get his first NFL rushing TD. One of these games when he comes in at fullback, he’s getting that hand off at the goal line. I wouldn’t be surprised if he caught a TD one game either. Bucs have been setting it up.

    Bulldozer with feet = Manimal!

    Vita Vea is a hybrid of Vince Wilfork and Troy Pollamalu.

    Vea vs Quinten Nelson!!!

    Quinten is considered by many to be the best OL in the league, but he is currently on injured reserve. Hopefully he’s back and healthy. QN weighs less than Vea (who doesn’t) but he’s freakishly powerful. I would love to see if he can stop the human bulldozer.
