      He freed up the edge rushers and collapsed the pocket. I was thrilled they used him for the pass and not the run. It’s amazing how our edges look different when he is on the field.

      Sure hope everyone is healthy for SB and Gronk gets his TD to break the record 😊

      Collapsing the pocket inside just changes everything.

      Vea back was enough to overcome losing both starting safeties…

      Just barely tho

      Agreed! Now, let the Derwin James conversation end please! Vita showed us in his absence why he is the anchor of that line and why he is so important

      This is a fact, he was extremely disruptive and allowed Shaq and JPP to do their thing

      Yeah Vea was just unreal to see playing, and the coincidence of Vea being back and all of a sudden the pass rush looking like it existed again can’t be overlooked.

      Vea is dominant man. Unreal

      Vea helped Barrett get a sack today because Vea forced Rodgers to turn backwards, right into Barrett’s arms.

      You know Shaq and JPP we’re glad to have him back! Hopefully he’ll be able to play even more in the big game!!

      “The difference” may be a little hyperbole. Vea had a great game, but Green Bay scored 10 points against a Vea-less Buccaneer team earlier in the year. Honestly, Green Bay not having David Bakhtiri was huge. Both JPP and Shap put a whoopin on Billy Price tonight.

      I’m sure some will read this as a slight on Vea. It isn’t. I’ll repeat: Vea had a great, impactful game. Going to need that vs. KC or Buffalo.

      I don’t think he was the difference today… but I bet he fucking will be in two weeks!

      His push was key on like 2 sacks I saw in particular, but now he got some time to get in even better playing condition and be an even bigger contributor. Hard to not say that shaq and jpp alone dominated their matchups to make the difference, because it sure wasn’t running for 2 yards on every first down.

      For someone who has not played in 4 months….He was fantastic with his inside pass rush!!!

      The defense had to learn to play better when Vea went down. This makes them even better with him in there now than they were at the beginning of the season.

      Every defensive set I checked to see if he was on the field. Whenever he was, good things happened.

      Big guy manned up and played every series at the end of the game. Know he had to be gassed but he knew we needed him.

      Vea was a great pick. The big dude is the nicest, nasty guy.

      Loved the HS film they dug up of VV at RB. Imagine trying to tackle a 300 lb + running back in HS. Nuh uh. No. Nu nu nu nu no.

      He bullrushed the guard so many times it was actually funny. Only thing I could think of was Rodgers was lonely in the pocket and needed to talk to his Guard for advice. Vea provided that opportunity. He’s a beast!

      And now he gets 2 weeks to get more practice reps.

      AND A.W. JR. will be back too!

      I remember that draft; we had the #7 pick, and traded down to #12, just ahead of the Redskins, who were expected to take Vita. Many here wanted us to take Derwin James at #7, but he lasted all the way to #17.
      #7 now belonged to Buffalo, who took Josh Allen. The Redskins settled for Daron Payne, a big DT who we just faced. He had a pair of sacks on Brady in our playoff win.
      Derwin James? He has spent as much time on IR as on the football field…
