      Yeah, when you try to “michael” … some sites want clicks on their own site.  Can’t really blame them.It's a good article.  Most of what Bowen writes is good.  But, if the Bucs won more than 9 games in his two years, stardom wouldn't require any "turn".

        Lavonte David was "primed for a star turn" while Lovie was still sitting on his couch.

      I honestly don’t expect him to have the numbers he did last season.But having lovie around will give him a better shot at the probowl....kinda f'ed up, isn't it?

      Agreed. I wish i could find the thread where i said he would be better than DB. David is an absolute freak of nature at WLB.

      I remember. We were discussing it. You did say that.Still, he has a long way to go before we can crown him db 2.0. But you (we) were correct, he is no doubt a baller. Another season or two of playmaking and I'll be more comfortable saying it.As I said in that thread...it just seems wrong to say that yet.

      I know hate, I know. Lol.But at some point you have to speculate a little. I mean, we ALL can now say db was a baller, now, but go back to year two of db's career and are we still ready to commit him to greatness before his many, many years of it?A career like db's is toooough to beat in that aspect. Shear talent...maybe, david is a baller..but longevity..who knows?

      Saying he’s primed for a star turn now is all fine and dandy but it is a little disrespectful to what he’s done the last couple years.

      In my opinion, the only thing stopping LD from surpassing DB as the top LB in Bucs history is injury. I think we hit the lotto on the David pick.

      Me too B.But comparing him to brooks is a tough sell, given the amount of time brooks was a baller.  How many seasons did he play without injury, or games missed?Injury is probably the only thing that's going to hinder him, that's true, but brooks was damn near unstoppable.

      not just injury, perseverance as well. Not only does he have to do it at a high level, he needs to do it at a high level for a long time.
