More Respect For Gerald McCoy

May 6th, 2013

McCoyDisneyLost a bit in the Darrelle Revis/NFL Draft madness was Gerald McCoy being named by NFL Network, per the vote of NFL players, as the 92nd best football player in the league.

Now Joe knows that despite McCoy making a Pro Bowl last season without winning the fan vote, and staying healthy, and helping to anchor the NFL’s best run defense, McCoy still has his share of doubters.

This Top-100 designation should beat them back at least a little bit more. Below is McCoy chatting on NFL Network about what the honor means to him and about his personal goals. And he’s seated on the set next to new Bucs safety Dashon Goldson, who was No. 96 on the list for his play with the Niners last year.

    92 seems too low to me for a top 3 DT, but I hardly have time to put together my own list!

    IF we can get a pass rush, and IF Freeman has a good year, we could get into the playoffs this season!
    McCoy needs someone to emerge to help take the constant doubleteams off of him.

    Rankings are cool, but the only important rank is that the Buccaneers finish the regular season ranked 6th or greater in the NFC. (Playoffs!)

    Judging from the hints given on this show I think we’ll also see Revis, VJax, Martin and Ronde on the list this year. Add to the fact that Freeman, Williams, Nicks, Joseph and Penn have been on the list before. Clayborne and David are good enough to make a future list. This team has no excuse to not be in the playoffs next year
