Williams Backflips; McCoy Says He’s “No Homo”

May 24th, 2010

The sight of Mike Williams wearing his pewter Bucs uniform doing an endzone backflip was enough to get Joe a little jazzed for Bucs football this morning. The pickins are slim this time of year.

NFL Network cameras caught Williams’ stunt at the Los Angeles Coliseum, where about 30 NFL rookies gathered to take photos at an event sponsored by the players’ association over the weekend.

Williams was one of the lowest 2010 draft picks invited to the event.  

Gerald McCoy and Arrelious Benn also attended. And McCoy Twittered about what a good time he had with his 2010 draft classmates and then needed to express that he wasn’t having homosexual feelings toward them.

Man the rookie class of 2010 is cool as a fan! We had a blast this weekend in LA! I loved all the fellas! No homo. Lol!!

Uh, um, thanks for clarifying, Gerald.

    He can listen to all of the show tunes he wants, provided he stop the run and rush the passer.

    It’s going to be an information starved week. Is there video of the back flip? LOL

    He was making a joke about Dwanye Bowe being an idiot……
    I’d love to see the video of the backflip

  4. Gary Says:

    Now if there was a video of Mccoy doing a backflip, that would be something! If anyone on our team can do a backflip, I’ll take that! Lets hope Williams can translate that athletic ability to catches this season.

    JOE, link the video!

    Joe here,

    Fellas, at the top of every hour, NFL Network does a quick news segment, almost like FOX News or CNN does. This little news roundup had a 15 second or so segment on the rookies at the weekend event. And that’s where I saw Williams bust off the backflip and then the camera zoomed in a little on him cracking a big smile. ….There’s no video on NFL.com to link.

    Joe here,

    THanks, Aldo. I definitely saw a different cut on TV. But that’ll work.

  9. BigMacAttack Says:

    Styles White does back flips too. When Mike can do a FULL (bf w/ full twist), then I’ll be impressed. In the mean time, stay away from Clayton and catch the damn ball.

  10. BigMacAttack Says:


    Florio has you too Joe.

  11. tnew Says:

    not that there’s anything wrong with that

  12. Joe Says:


    Florio knows who to read to get quality information on the Bucs.

    just proves how old you are Joe, you aren’t even hip to the phrase “no homo” and think he’s clarifying that he truly is not gay. its a phrase commonly put after a “i love that dude” comment…just a funny thing to say. gotta be young to understand i guess…

  14. sensiblefan Says:


    Ah you beat me to the punch on the “no homo” comment. LOL!

  15. Mookie Says:

    I hope the NFL doesn’t make him miss OTA’s to attend diversity and sensitivity training. Bucs clearly were highly sensitive to opposing quarterbacks last year and did not want to hear their feelings by sacking them.

  16. Mookie Says:

    Obviously, meant to say “hurt their feelings” not “hear their feelings”. I’m multitasking which one should never do when posting comments on a blog.

  17. Joseph Says:

    The phrase “no homo” its used pretty often colloquially so that when you say something kind of soft (e.g. I love you guys) you add it on the end before anyone can bust your balls for it. A lot of college kid use it. Just thought I’d let it be known.

  18. Joe Says:

    Thanks Joseph!

    Joe never claimed to be hip. 🙂

  19. big007hed Says:

  20. Joe Says:
