Antoine Winfield Gets A Shoutout

October 10th, 2023

Top shelf play.

So who is the best defensive back in the NFL? Darius Slay? Marshon Lattimore? Sauce Gardner? How about Antoine Winfield?

Super Bowl-winning cornerback Jason McCourty, currently a co-host of “Good Morning Football,” seen weekday mornings on NFL Network, had a list of the top five defensive backs in the NFL through Week 5.

Normally, you would expect a cornerback to be the top defensive back. Nope, not today. McCourty believes Winfield is playing at such a level, he’s gotten better results than the best corners in the game.

“This guy just continues to make plays all over the field,” McCourty said. “His leadership is everything about Antoine Winfield, Jr.

McCourty also noted Winfield is one of three safeties with two sacks. How good of a year is Winfield having? Well, through five games he already has tied a career-high in forced fumbles (two) and is one shy of a career-high in fumble recoveries (two).

Joe really believes Winfield is playing at an All-Pro level.

    Even better than doing it in 5 games is doing it in 4 which is how many games he has played due to the bye week.

    All Pro straight up. Also he’s the guy that I’d least want to get hit by. He’s strong as an Ox.

  6. Esteban85 Says:

    He’s also rated the Bucs best pass rusher.

  7. Buccos Says:

    But is he better than his father ever was?

  8. Capt2fish Says:

    Trask guys never give up. Hey- O’Connell on the raiders looked awesome in preseason.

    We always have! I took all kinds of h3ll for that sentiment when Methuselah brought his soap opera here. I would love to be a fly on the wall when AWJ visits his Dad. That great talent passed on. DPOY barring Buc Luck (injury). Go Mighty Bucs!!

  11. EternalSon Says:

    I really like Winfield

  12. garro Says:

    That was my point orlbucfan. They have all but ignored our talent here forever. Even LeeRoy got the treatment a bit back in the day.

    Now its guys like Mike, Chris, Tristan, LVD along with Winfield…Soon to be others me thinks. Ask Ronde the system Corner…

    Go Bucs!
