Why McCoy Is Better Than SuhFebruary 24th, 2010
Joe thought he’d pass along the thoughts of a former offensive lineman.
Ross Tucker is best known as a columnist for SI.com, and a radio host for Sirius NFL Radio. In another life, Tucker was a guard in the NFL for five years, playing for Washington, Dallass, Buffalo and New England.
Tucker, Twittering Tuesday night, broke down why he likes McCoy better than Suh.
I think Suh will be a very good player but rookie DT’s usually have no counter-move, no idea what to do when you jump/short set them, etc. Not to mention the fact that my biggest concern with Suh and the reason why some have McCoy ahead of him is McCoy has a better first step. In the NFL the difference between a lightning quick & explosive first step vs. an average one is HUGE. Can be THE difference at times.
What does Joe make of this? He only prays the Bucs have a choice between Suh and McCoy.
