I was waiting for a performance like this from the D. Absolutely awesome in every respect. Sure, Ronde slipped and Phillips was just off on the second Jennings TD, but to limit the big plays to just 2 and only give up 14 points against one of the best Passing Attack's in the League is fantastic. Add to that the 3 Interceptions, the FF + TD FR, and you got yourselves a dominant defensive performance.

Also, I thought the pass rush picked up from last week, and critically, was able to keep it up til the end. Greg White's big pressure sealed the deal. Finally, I thought Monte's blitzes were really effective and called at just the right time.

Oh yeah, the run defense aswell. Grant never had a chance.

Greg White just about killed Aaron Rodgers on that play.

We are a good, not great, UT away from having a scarily dominant defense.

Wilkerson at ut would improve things from a pass rushing stand point imo.  Looks like Jovan Haye has lost his burst from last year.

The Bucs are getting a better presence in the middle so that the opposing QB's don't consistently have time to step up and make the throws. Certainly not as bad as last season.

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.
