    David could be our sack leader if Mike Smith turns him loose and he just might based on what we have seen from the front four.

      Maybe then he’d get the national recognition he deserves. He’s always been better than Kuechly, imo.

    Lavonte has been my favorite buc since we drafted him. His first career INT was on Payton manning. He’s at his best when he can freelance close to the line of scrimmage..I agree with skipper in that I think he is even a better edge rusher than RE Spence is. Always gets great burst off edge rushes. Lavonte was the best LB in the NFL when revis was playing in the secondary behind him. He’s been a saving grace through some very bad rosters/coaching regimes and he never misses a game (except for concussion).

    This guy has produced with three different coaching staffs. Legit all pro and he is only 27 years old! Only 27! he has a good 6-7 years left in his storied career.

    I remember when Lavonte blew the Jets game for us week 1 of his rookie season – he pushed ?mark sanchez? I think? Out of bounds at the end of the game, it was a clear penalty and it set the Jets up to make the game winning field goal. All I could think then was “for fuck sake”.

    But holy hell did he redeem himself. Besides Gerald, he’s been the lone bright spot on this defense until Kwon showed up, and I almost feel bad that Kwon steals a little of his luster. But I don’t think David minds. He seems to be one of those quiet guys that doesn’t want the spotlight. I’ll take that any day of the week. I think he’s going to have a monster year.

    Never really worried. I think the change of the defense may have slowed him down some. As the article stated he played very well last half of season.
