    I’ll add Kevin Panphile and DeVonte Lambert to this list. The youngsters fared pretty well for the most part. Let’s also give some credit to Roberto Aguayo. Josh Robinson continues to shine on Special Teams. Cameron Brate made a heck of a catch before being injured.

    Anyone see Noah Spence make a play?

    Merry Christmas Scubog, and a Happy New Year to all my fellow PR posters and Buc fans. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Feliz Navidad, or whatever expression makes you feel good this time of year! Go Bucs in 2017!

    Anger was the only positive. Everyone else played pretty poorly.

    I disagreed with Mark Cook’s “most disappointing player” list that included VHIII, and I would add VHIII to the most impressive list as the flip side to that. VHII defensed two passes that would have been long receptions, had more solo tackles than Kwon Alexander (6 vs. 5) and he forced the only fumble of the game (though it was recovered by the Saints), which was the closest we got to a take away all game.

    Where I disagreed with Cook was that the blame for the productivity of the Saints offense entirely belongs to the front seven who failed to get any consistent pressure on Brees. Everybody in the league knows that the only way to contain the Saints offense is to get pressure on Brees in the pocket – just as we did two weeks ago at home, but entirely failed to do on the road yesterday. That’s not on the backfield at all. When we got those 3 INTs against Brees two weeks ago it was because of passes forced by pressure on Brees in the pocket. Without that there would not have been those 3 INTs two weeks ago.

    The writers here have it entirely flip-flopped.
