      Guess can’t avoid it forever although they’ve been very fortunate to not have many COVID related issues. Means the offense is going to have to score big points again I think because Atlanta will have offense humming too.

      Alvin Kamara is out with a positive test as well. Talk about a major blow!

      Wasn’t Devin White labeled a bust by the members of this very message board?

      Hopefully some big name Redskins players get it.
      Their rookie DE from ohio state- Horse Hair. Hope he gets it.

      Okay I have to ask this question because I feel like I’m the only one who doesn’t know. If they were all together as a defense at practice, how is the entire starting defense not on COVID protocol? I seem to remember several players on the Titans being together earlier in the season at practice and all being put on protocol. I think they even moved the game. I understand they are not able to do that now.

      Shaq will probably still play in the playoffs.

      You’d think they’d just delay the game by a day.

      Not sure what makes some times special and others not on the reschedules?

      I don’t feel good about us playing the game on Sunday. The Falcons C is on the COVID list and he snaps the ball to Matt Ryan who hands the ball off to their RB. These players are not on the list. Maybe I’m being too COVID sensitive.

      I only see that both of the guys reported today (white, kamara) are still possibilities to play on playoff Sunday and not for sure out.

      We don’t have to prove White was the wrong pick at 5, it’s already a closed case. Minter in base and Mike Edwards in nickel is what some of us wanted to see, yes.

      I’ve been a die hard fan my entire life but we deserve what we get with some of the so called fans of this team!!!
      First off , we are NOT guaranteed the NFC East .. if we lose n Rams win , guess what?? Also , where do you think we will just win vs NFC East ??! You think Washington can’t give us fits? They are an 11 win team w Alex Smith (.700 team sine 18’ 14-6) Dallas 3 WRs could smoke our DBs!! N Zeke, Pollard could run right up the middle NOW!! Anyone who thinks losing the ENFORCER of a top ten D , that’s #1 vs run n 4th in sacks who contributed 130 n 9 respectively is a “ good” thing to be OUT??!! You’re an absolute IDIOT and first class MORON! He will be SORELY missed come rd 1!
      Like I’ve said a handful of times , CAREFUL what you wish for !!! There’s 30 teams that would kill to have Devin White in the middle of their defense. I guess we should trade 9 sacks and 130 tackles for 5 pass breakups? Go watch Kelce in KC game catch n drop like a girl to the ground.
      Guys know 45 is coming!! His hustle play vs Carson last year or running 15 yrds to smack D Carr short of first down. The one arm body slams, and closing speed to get the sacks. Come on man , he’s a very good player. What have you watched the last 10 yrs prior to him here???
      For the record, D White didn’t lose a single game for us this year. Brady cost us the Saints opener , Rams and KC games as much as anyone. Lavonte has been absent at times as well. Should we rag on those guys too? There’s a reason Kevin Minter is well…. Kevin Minter. Let’s hope he doesn’t go down vs Atl.. or did some of the pea brains not think that one out fully.

      I think the game delays have been about trying to ensure the players on the field aren’t going to pass it to other players on the field. So it’s about the timing of positive tests, not who tests positive. If more positives show up today, then I think the game will get pushed back.

      Is Barrett’s wife implying that D. White or someone else was reckless?

      These are major losses for the Bucs, but we can overcome them. Let’s just hope it’s limited to these guys and doesn’t turn into a Ravens type situation.

      I’m not sure what other people have said about Minter vs White, but here is the reality:

      1) They are mostly indistinguishable as Coverage players (this should read…they are both extremely poor coverage players).

      2) Minter is a better B gap < > B Gap run fit player. He’s more disciplined in his key-reading and his cognitive loop appears quicker/cleaner there, and he’s better at not getting caught up in the wash/taking on climbing OL with the correct shoulder, sufficient to either make the tackle or make the appropriate play on the ball carrier so that it declares to help.

      3) Minter is a solid blitz player. He is not White’s equal here at all, but he’s a solid player.

      4) Minter isn’t even close to White as an Spill player on the edge.

      5) Minter isn’t even close to White as a run-and-chase playmaker or a Green Dog player (unfortunately, Bowles hasn’t put White in this role NEARLY enough as the plays have piled on…for whatever inexplicable reason, he’s actually SEVERELY contracted White’s # and % of plays in that role as time has accrued).

      My surmise is that what this will mean as that we’ll see a LOT more 3 Safeties. It will be mostly Edwards subbing for White, not Minter. Minter will obviously see plenty of time in Base, but we’ll (hopefully) be in Big Dime a huge % of the time with the 3 Safeties rolling/rotating as the extra box player on a play by play basis.

      I would say White’s poor pass coverage have strongly contributed to a couple of losses; the Bears and the Rams. And comparing White with Brady this year??? White’s player grade from PFF (Pro football Focus) for 2020 is 43.4 which is very poor. Brady’s is 91.9 which is: 1) Great 2) the best on the team and 3) 3rd best QB in the NFL.

      The team will miss White in getting after the QB but certainly not in pass coverage.

      One other quick thought:

      Anyone who thinks 1 (or even 2) games is a sufficient dataset to make an informed opinion is just a partisan masquerading as an analyst.

      If our defense performs well against Atlanta without White (and they now have Julio Jones healthy), that doesn’t say anything by itself.

      If our defense performs worse against Atlanta without White, that doesn’t say anything by itself.

      Same goes for the WC game.

      There are a large number of degrees of freedom of performance for this defense and its play against any given opponent (one of which is unrelated to our own defense…it could be the personnel/gameplanning/play of the other team) that have little to do with White (or Vea for that matter). After a large enough look (such as the difference in defense I’ve covered with Vea being out), you can be confident in your assessment.
