The “Sledgehammer” At One Buc

May 18th, 2015

There’s a big name Buccaneers player that talked an awful lot about being sick of losing this offseason.

That would be Gerald McCoy, who fired up Twitter this winter and spring with calls for a new attitude, a zero-tolerance for suckitude.

Tampa Bay defensive line coach Joe Cullen was available to media today after practice (which was closed to media) and Joe asked Cullen whether he’s seen evidence of a new attitude by McCoy.

“Yeah,” Cullen replied while also praising the D-line group.

“Gerald brings a sledgehammer to work every day to knock the wall down.”

That wall is losing, dreadful losing, 70 out the last 100 games. Gerald, tear down that wall.

    I think McCoy will enjoy having Melton on the line with him this year.

    the same thing they said about him last year

    …And the year before

    Hes says that every year. Im the minority that thinks mccoy is a good player but way overrated. What has he really done for us? And disappears on 3rd down and the 4th quarter

  5. foghead407 Says:

    And when was the last time he played a full season healthy

    I hope he stop helpin Mufukas up for starters.

    Can’t do it by himself. The problem here is we Buc fans were spoiled by Sapp, so hence the comparisons, at the end of the day, GMC is top two DTs in the league. But I do want to see better second halfs or at least his team mates benefit by the double-triple teams he faces AND finish the entire season.

    “big name Buccaneers player that talked”

    And immediately we all knew it was Gerald.

    McCoy is great. If a DE was coming on the outside with his pressure on the inside…. He’d have 10 sacks a year and the DE would’ve been at 10+

    Can’t have pressure from one spot

    The offense just needs to stop putting the defense back out on the field so often or score enough points to make the opposing team’s O a little more predictable. This D will get rolling THIS season.

    Things will get better soon.

    GMC is one of those guys who perhaps has the physical excellence at his position to hang with HOF players, but he does not have the overall “Franchise-changing” makeup that really doesn’t tolerate losing or incomplete effort a la Ray Lewis, Warren Sapp and some of the more celebrated Franchise QBs. He will always do his part, but he does not elevate the play or effort of others through his leadership. He talks the talk, but i doubt he’s ever gotten on anyone the way our rookie WR Mike Evans got on Garrett Gilkey – getting in his face and telling him know in no uncertain terms he was letting his team down. GMC probably came up to Garrett and said something like, “keep playing hard, buddy”
