The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a good football team trapped in the body of a stupid one. Despite boasting talent like Vincent Jackson, Mark Barron, Gerald McCoy and others, the Bucs are one of the worst teams in football and things aren’t getting any better. Case and point of the stupid mistakes drowning the Bucs season was seen on a spectacular interception that linebacker Lavonte David made that was called back due to an offsides penalty.
David, who has emerged as a rising star in the NFL and one of the Bucs best young defensive players, made a great sideline interception while in coverage against San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis. But while he was able to wrestle the ball away from Davis and stay in bounds while doing so, the game changing interception was called back thanks to an offsides penalty that really had no effect not he play other than negating a spectacular catch.
The offsides didn’t put any extra pressure on Colin Kaepernick and didn’t force him to make a bad throw, which makes it erasing David’s interception even worse. That’s the way to play Greg Schiano football though.
