Last year, Curtis Samuel was a menace against the Buccaneers defense, weaving in and out from defenders scoring two touchdowns for us. Yes, the Bucs do have a new defensive coordinator, but this is Curtis Samuel's breakout year. Look out for him to have a monster game against Tampa Bay's young and inexperienced defensive backs.
Coming off a game where he caused two turnovers that arguably cost us the game, DJ should look to have a redemption game. I'm predicting he'll have over a hundred yards and 1 TD.
You're looking at a possible lockdown corner this year. Last week, Bradberry had 4 tackles, 1 INT, 1 SK, and a pass deflection. Sean McVay, the offensive genius, even complimented him after the game saying, "One hell of a play there James". PFF put him on the team of the week commenting, "Bradberry had a huge game in coverage for the Panthers, allowing just one reception for 11 yards on four targets from 44 coverage snaps. On top of that, he had a pass breakup and an interception. By the time the game was over, he had allowed an NFL passer rating on 0.0 on throws into his coverage."
It was easy to see Burns speed on display in his first game, constantly causing pressure on Jared Goff. He finished with 2 tackles, but he showed more than just his stat line. We are still awaiting Burn's first sack.
Two words: Revenge game. McCoy even said he wishes that we played at Raymond James Stadium this year (Week 6 vs Bucs in London) to hear the boos directed his way. Hopefully Gerald will have some sacks because our pass rush didn't generate many sacks Sunday.
Shaq finally got a chance to show off his first round talent at full force after the departure of beloved Pro Bowl linebacker Thomas Davis. He ended the game with a team-leading 9 tackles. You'd think I'd have Luke on here, but Shaq was sideline to sideline during this game.
