Gerald McCoy Having Fun Scaring Quarterbacks

August 29th, 2010

Brice Price and Barrett Ruud were not the only Bucs defenders who played well Saturday night. So too did Bucs first round draft pick Gerald McCoy.

The rookie defensive tackle had nearly as good of a game as his fellow rookie tackle, Price. Speaking on the Buccaneers Radio Network after the game, GMC said he is still learning.

“Yeah, our motto is that the quarterback needs to feel us and that’s what we did today. That’s what we gave fans a chance to see.

“Lightning delay? We can’t use that as an excuse. [Jacksonville] had to do the same thing. You can’t use anything as a crutch. If we were playing basketball, we wouldn’t be worried about the weather.

“I’m grasping the defense. I’m learning and I’m having fun. Camp went well. Things are going well. I’ve learned things that I didn’t know. I need to learn each game and build off of that. This game I was staying in the quarterback’s face. I want to build on that. I will get better.”

The way Price can play when healthy, alongside an improving and highly talented GMC, these two very well could cost NFC South offensive coordinators quite a few sleepless nights foryears to come.

    I agree. Bewteen them two and Mike Williams, I have a few favorites developing… so long as they don’t punch anyone in the back of the head, I think those 3 could become my future favorites.
