“Power” Time For McCoy Starts March 1January 27th, 2014
Joe was busy drinking warming, soothing beverages in frigid New Jersey, the site of Super Bowl media festivities during yesterday’s Pro Bowl.
Forgive Joe for not watching much Hawaii action. However, Joe did have his Hawaii A-team at the game finishing up its great week of work, and they got to ask Gerald McCoy a few postgame questions.
(If you missed it, here’s a link to McCoy’s chat earlier this week.)
Yesterday, McCoy explained his work schedule — and what he needs to work on. That was unique for McCoy, because he’s typically a guy who will say he needs to work on everything. But this time he gave specifics.
JoeBucsFan.com: What is your offseason schedule look like? How much R&R do you take?
Gerald McCoy: I do a little cardio in the month of February, but for the most part, for the month of February I’m sitting down. Come March, I’ll start back up.
Joe: Are you still doing offseason training in California with renowned trainer Todd Durkin?
McCoy: Yeah, San Diego. March 1. Right back at it.
Joe: Will you be back in Tampa for all of OTAs?
McCoy: Yeah, I’ll be there for all that.
Joe: What part of your game do you think you need to work on?
McCoy: Power rushes. All my moves from my right side. My overall run game, playing the run.
Again, that was noteworthy to hear McCoy offer focus areas for his game. Joe wonders whether he crafted a little work list with Lovie Smith when the two chatted in Tampa recently.
Regardless, McCoy’s second studly, healthy Pro Bowl season is now in the books. If he can hone those power moves and play a little stronger (as in physical strength) this season, then the Bucs could be downright scary, assuming they can secure the edge rusher that’s eluded them for many years.
