Let McCown Loose

September 18th, 2014


Former Josh McCown teammate Shaun King, one of three quarterbacks to lead Tampa Bay to the NFC Championship game, says it’s time to let McCown loose.

No, King isn’t part of the Mike Glennon Mob.

King wants the Bucs to remove the fear factor that may be affecting McCown and let him loose to make plays in an offense that best suits him.

“I think instead of telling him don’t mess up, I’d try and play the other way,” King said on WDAE-AM 620. ‘Listen, Josh, we’re going to win or lose based on how you play. Go out and play your game. Don’t be worried about making a mistake. Don’t be worried  about making the dumb plays. Just understand that for every dumb play you make, you gotta make two more great plays.’

“I think you kind of got to feed the other way. I don’t think he’ll be the efficient, game-manager-type quarterback. That’s not who he is.”

King explained the McCown always, outside of last season, has been inconsistent but talented and athletic. So to think McCown would thrive in an offensive that isn’t aggressive is misguided.

If the Bucs continue to lose, King said, he expects to evaluate their potential draft position as it relates to a quarterback and then insert Mike Glennon.

As for tonight, King believes the Bucs’ only shot is to get pressure on Matt Ryan. If not, King predicts a 400+ yard passing night and several touchdowns for Atlanta.

King predicted a 31-14 victory for Atlanta.

    Dear McCown, please do not throw 1st down picks tonight. If you throw one on 3rd and long that is ok. If it is at the end of the game trying to catch up…that is ok too. But on 1st down, absolutely no picks.

    I did’nt know the Bucs threw on 1st down.

    McCown please don’t fumble the ball away on your first drive or any drive for that matter. The falcon may not jump off side to save your sorry azz.

    Let Shaun King loose….on the buffet table.

  6. Tackleblockwin Says:


    Lol. Correct we if I am wrong though. But I think all his picks have been on 1st down.

  7. Sapp, STFU Says:

    I’ll eat to that!

  8. robert9 Says:

    what the bucs need are quick slants with glennon throwing the ball.

    sure would be nice to have a TE threat…but we trade him away for peanuts and our so called start has yet to shine or barely play. ASJ I mean.

    would have been much better off keeping our 4th round pick, signing incognito and playing glennon and wright.

  9. Bogiedr Says:

    I nominate robert9 for GM / HC. Dude you are so right on … 6-5 dudes running quick slants … Glennon quick passes … You are good, anyone second the motion?

  10. Bannor Says:

    Is the Bucs offensive coordinator coordinating tonight? Or are we picking a random fan from the stands to call plays?

  11. DB55 Says:

    Nannie the fan might do a better job.

    WAIT A MINUTE, so according to King, Mccown’s been playing on a leash and he should have that leash taken off of him….cue the 3 Stooges…wait for it….. YAH-YAH-YAH-YAH!!!!!

    Shaun King, one of two Bucs QBs that lost the NFC Championship game with defenses that gave up 11 or less points.

  14. BoJim Says:

    Release the hounds.

  15. pick6 Says:

    well, at least the pressure is officially off of him to reproduce his 13/1 ratio from last year. he’s way off that pace

  16. Architek Says:

    I agree with King – it may get ugly.

    Hhhmm? Joe has a successful business yet “must get a life.” What should Joe do, shut this site down and sweep floors for a living?

    Why does the truth hurt you so? Did Shaun King do foul things to you in another life?

    Joe has never seen such vile hatred for a man who did so much for the Bucs. smh

    No Joe Don’t shut it down, Maybe just warning label like on cigarettes = Warning if you post on here, right or wrong you may be seal clubbed, enter at own risk..

  22. ddneast Says:

    No hatred here for King, just a tad bit of disappointment that he was given the reins to a team and then didn’t show enough maturity, leadership and work ethic to take the responsibility of the role.
    I will say that was a solid observation on his part and a good analysis and idea.
