Lavonte David 11-12

After the Bucs big win on Monday Night Football against the Dolphins, linebacker Lavonte David joined Booger and Rich as he does every Tuesday to talk about the victory.

Greg Schiano said Lavonte David cut him off on the sidelines and said this won’t happen again we have to step up. David said he just felt like it was time to speak up and felt like it was time to finally get a win. David said it was just time to come out and say it. He said it was different than earlier in the season, they were on a national platform and it was just the right time.

David said it was time for him to become a leader so he stepped up and took over.

David said their mentality is to stop the run always. In practice they put an emphasis on setting the edge. They helped contain the Dolphins run game and held them to 2 yards in the game.

This win shows that this can be done David said. He said they can just go out and have fun and have a great chance against Atlanta this Sunday. David said there was a sense of relief finally getting the first win and it showed everyone that there hard work can pay off.
