    Not only did Vernon have a critical hand in both of our takeaways, he also led the team in tackles yesterday! And returned 2 punts for 14 yards after Humph went down with a concussion.

    1. 1.1


      His side of the field was on lock down all day long. Besides Grimes getting beat…again…all Rivers could do was check it down to Gordon. Gordon was all of the Chargers offense. The only few times the ball did get thrown to his side of the field ended up in two INTs, and as this article claims, VH3 was pretty much responsible for both of them. We’ll give him 2 assists!

      DougBaldwin did nothing for the SeaHawks, Hill did nothing for the Chiefs outside of the 40 yard catch when he burnt Grimes…again. Although Kelce did beat VH3 on one play. And do we even have to talk about the Bears game? I don’t think VH3 gave up but 2 catches for short yardage all game.

      The dude is going to be elite. I for one am enjoying watching him blossom before our eyes.

    Yes, VH3 had an amazing game. First of all, I am very happy the Bucs have a defense that can defend the slant. Second, I think he is close to getting his own pick. Glad Jason Licht selected him in the first round. Go Bucs!

    I’ll admit I wasn’t a instant fan of the VH3 selection, but it’s proving to be the right one. I wanted Spence in the first, I was really surprised and pleased we got him in the second. It’s looking like Jason hit another couple out of the park with these two!

  4. 4


    VH3, Kwon and Spence will lead this defense for years to come. Go Bucs!

    1. 4.1


      Don’t forget LVD. he is still the best LB on the team.
      GO BUCS

      1. 4.1.1


        of course yes never can forget him

  5. 5


    I certainly did not know what other people saw in Hargreaves that distinguished him from other DBs in the draft. I had not followed his college career. I now applaud the selection.

    What I have seen is the way he plays the whole games. I am extremely happy to see some of his tackles that stand out in my mind. (Yes, I have also seen some good coverage skills exhibited at times.). I could care about how many or how few “splash” plays he will have had in his rookie year. I am sold on him now and I expect him to have a great career.

    He has also shown versatility and that is another plus for him.

    Go Bucs!!!!
