Bucs’ Devin White Slams The ‘Cocky’ Kansas City Chiefs & Their Super Bowl Game Plan (VIDEO)
Devin White has zero sympathy for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Buccaneers linebacker Devin White appeared on FS1’s Undisputed to discuss Super Bowl LV and was asked by Shannon Sharpe whether he was surprised by the failure of the Chiefs to provide extra help to their offensive line.
“We knew that they was gonna be a cocky team, which they have every right to be,” White said. “They was the No. 1 offense in the entire National Football League. But the thing is, we knew they couldn’t block us. We knew that our front four was gonna dominate them. So they did us a favor. They played right into our hands.
“We weren’t gonna be that cocky team like, ‘Hey, we’re gonna play them in Cover One, we’re gonna shut them down.’ Our best guys matched up on their best guys. We was gonna make it be a team, collective win on defense, and that’s what we did, man. So at the end of the day they shouldn’t even talk about not having their offensive tackles when they didn’t even help them. They put them on islands by themselves with the best pass rushers in the game. So that’s at their own fault.”
Not having star left tackle Eric Fisher for the Super Bowl showed all game long.
The Chiefs relied heavily on Patrick Mahomes’ ability to escape pressure in the pocket and create plays like he always does, but the Bucs were just so much better on this day and it came back to bite the Chiefs in the end.
