Gerald McCoy Has A New Job

Just call Gerald McCoy choreographer-in-chief.

Yes, your Buccaneers will be doing defensive line stunts this year — but only when No. 93 says so.

Joe knew the Bucs had granted the D-line great freedom this season, so today Joe asked McCoy about how calling their own line stunts would work.

“Coach is just going to put us in a pass rush front. Anything that happens from there is on us. We call all our stunts and anything we do,” McCoy said. “So it’s not like it’s the huddle call [from coaches] like last year. This year will be coordinated between the D-linemen. So they’re giving us a lot of freedom.”

So how will that work, Gerald. That’s a quick call that has to be made.

“Just kind of go on the fly. Can’t get too much into it,” McCoy said.

So is that your call, Gerald?

“It’s mine. Yeah,” he said.

Lovie Smith said today that the Bucs will use line stunts, but he’s not the biggest fan of them because they can take a stud rusher out of the play just to try and free up someone else. (Somewhere, Greg Schiano and Bill Sheridan are cringing in agony.)

Regardless, the Bucs will use them when it feels right. And if/when you don’t like — or absolutely love — the call, you’ll know who should get your praise or anger. That’s No. 93.

    McCoy is going to win games for us this season. Sapp’s biggest seasons, there were games where he just took over… The offense sucked but it didn’t matter because 99 was ruining ever play from the snap.

    we may have some crappy guards nut at least they get to test themselves against GMC everyday. I’m expecting McCoy to make a push for DPOY

    not sure how this should work, either

    a) the offense should be able to get a grasp and tell when or even how they will stunt

    b) some stunts have to be ochestrated for blitzes to function and vice versa

    this sound strange, but maybe they know what they are doing

    after the draft i am not sure about their doings
