Safeties Finally Getting It

Sunday against the 49ers may have been the best game by both of the bucs safeties. Bradley McDougald came away with his first pick and Conte didn’t allow the big play and also came away with a couple key stop as you can see below.

Both McDougald and Conte have gotten a lashing here from us at Real bucs talk but it looks as if they are finally figuring it out. They may have done well against a below average team in the 49ers but they still were in the right places at the right time. Conte, whom I bash the most seemed to always be in the right assignment and played fast. McDougald obviously flashed with the interception but also totaled 5 tackles and one pass deflected. Its good if you don’t hear the safety’s name called as they are the last line of defense and usually are making the tackle after everyone else has missed.

Hopefully McDougald and Conte take this game as a confidence booster and go into this Raiders game ready to play knowing the level at which they can play. It’s the best I’ve seen them play this season and that can only be a good sign.
