“No Dog” In Gerald McCoyAugust 1st, 2012
Former Bucs guard Ian Beckles (1990-1996) was out at Bucs camp today for the first time broadcasting his radio show, and Beckles is not upbeat on the Bucs defensive line.
Beckles repeatedly said there’s “no dog” in Gerald McCoy and that McCoy is too nice on and off the field and there’s never been a great defensive tackle that has that personna. “I don’t want no chess players,” Beckles said.
Regarding Amobi Okoye, Beckles call him “servicable,” but doesn’t think fans should be overly excited about him, especially if Rod Marinelli let him get away. “If he was spectacular, Chicago wouldn’t have let him go.”
Beckles is also down on Frank Okam, saying he’s what guys referred to in his era as a “slug,” defined as a lineman that takes up a lot of space but gets blocked all the time.
