Shaun King And Gerald McCoy SparAugust 19th, 2011
In what Joe found eerily similar to the way former Bucs offensive guard and current WDAE-AM 620 personality Ian Beckles used former Bucs linebacker Barrett Ruud as his cause célèbre, lashing out at him virtually each day, former Bucs quarterback quarterback Shaun King unleashed an angry sermon at Bucs defensive tackle Gerald McCoy today on WQYK-AM 1010.
King skinned GMC for a variety of things, and Joe will detail these comments tomorrow morning.
While Joe would never claim he’s an NFL coach, Joe monitored GMC often last night with Joe’s binoculars and Joe thought GMC did alright, sans a mistackle that was turned in to a 29-yard run. Hell, the fact that GMC was in position to make the damned play in the first place was impressive enough for Joe.
After the game, GMC took full blame for the whiff.
One of the things King lashed out at GMC for was Twittering, which led to King and GMC got into a Twitter spat this afternoon while King was on the air.
@realshaunking: the people that paid their hard earned money to come to support u guys didnt come to hear or see jokes.
This didn’t sit well as one can imagine from GMC.
@geraldini93: Sense of humor people. GET ONE. Stop being so serious all the time. Good day to you.
Joe may have been the first media member that spoke with GMC last night. Joe was talking with Kyle Moore whose locker is right next to GMC’s. No other media members were there and Joe asked GMC if he wanted to chat and GMC obliged. Joe never, ever got the impression that GMC was blowing off how the Bucs got beat down last night. He fessed up that he missed on some plays and that he was rusty and can play better.
Shoot, this was his first taste of battle since he was hurt last year. Did anyone really expect GMC to come out and play like Mean Joe Green against the Patriots of all teams?
