    Not having Kwon is killer. Without him in the lineups the Bucs are 0-6. He is the lifeblood of the defense and losing him for any significant time will be bad mojo for sure.

      Idk about 0-6, but losing him is quite a loss, no question about it.

        Yeah I shouldve clarified that. What I meant is that they are 0-6 without him since he’s come into the league.

      The dropoff between Kwon Alexander and Kendall Beckwith is real, but it’s not that dramatic. Kendall is playing very well despite being a rookie now starting in a position he was not even projected to play a month ago.

      Next man up!

        I agree, Beckworth is looking good. Was not sure about that pick but those LSU guys have always been good.
        Go Bucs

    The good news is David was listed a doubtful. Regardless, shouldn’t we bring a L.B. up from the P.S.? Might be Joe Dirt time! LoL. Hopefully David plays against N.E..

    It’s never good to lose really good players for multiple games.

    But let’s not forget,two years ago Kwon was just a promising rookie, getting a start in the 2015 season when he had not projected to start before he won the job in preseason.

    Now we’ve got Kendall Beckwith, another promising rookie starting at MLB when he was projected to either back up or start at OLB, but so far doing a good job. Getting this starting experience at MLB can only help him develop even faster and provide us the opportunity to have terrific depth at the MLB spot when Kwon returns.

    Maybe I’m being optimistic here, but again, who projected two years ago that Kwon would become the indispensable MLB?

    Oh, and also, with Kendall starting at MLB possibly several weeks, this also helps get Adarious Glanton starting experience at OLB, also helping our depth whenever Kwon gets back and Kendall slips into the starting OLB role.

    Suboptimal to say the least. At least Beckwith is filling in admirably. The loss of Lavonte is really going to sting. Hopefully they’ll be back for the game against Arizona. If not, just gotta make due until they are. Glanton, Beckwith, Lynch and Bond have to find a way.

    The bye week debacle ruined our season. The Bears handed us a win in the first half sending us into the Vikings cold and untested. Now we are decimated by injuries with no bye week to recover. When the talent level is so similar across the league something like starting late and getting no bye week is enough to derail everything.

    Trevor, I’m more concerned as to this Giant’s game as to McCoy. Can he really go full throttle as it sure didn’t look like it in the last quarter of the Viking game? Your Thoughts?

    Okay I know some of you who play it safe in your comments disagree with this thought. Why not help our Defense by being aggessive on Offense? We don’t have the runners to pound the ball and the Gants know it. Throw the damm ball! I don’t care if Winston screws up sometimes, throw the damm ball. We need points, not time run off the clock. I am only saying this for the Giants game; Martin will be back Monday and we can do more running in the Patriots game. Go Bucs!
