“And That Sucks”

June 16th, 2015

McCoy mugThe Bucs’ face of the franchise, Gerald McCoy, continues to share his theme of 2015.

McCoy was hammering social media in the winter, claiming he was sick and tired of losing and he only wants guys around him that feel the same way. This weekend, McCoy said he should be a winner.

Yesterday, McCoy was back in Tampa and talking to Buccaneers.com. No 93 lamented the Bucs’ lasting-pretender status and claimed individual accolades are just footnotes on the big picture.

“My team has never been to the playoffs, and that sucks,” McCoy said.

Joe loves McCoy’s attitude. The guy has even doubled up on his relentless personal workouts this offseason.

Joe just hopes McCoy doesn’t get hurt celebrating if the Bucs win their first home game, a place they haven’t won since 2013.

    GMC….got character…..recieved the big bucks and still plays just as hard if not harder…..we need 52 more just like him!!!

    Tampa used to be the perpetual laughing stock of the NFL once, then we got better. But now, we are back to what we always were, the joke of the NFL.
    It is going to be a long climb back to respectability for us, and it will have to be earned.
    I think we are on the right track now, especially with this draft.

    Man, when you say a place that the Bucs haven’t won since 2013, it really resonates. In the late 90’s early 2000’s, the last place teams wanted to play was Ray Jay. We have zero swagger now and have become a laughing stock. The players on this team need to carry that chip on their shoulder. Some of the rookies haven’t experienced it but several of our players, including McCoy, know that crappy feeling of losing almost weekly.

    Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning…you’ve got a good point. When I take a look back at say the 99 Bucs. I can remember what a good Bucs team is supposed to look like and what it takes to get to that point.

    This team has a ways to go to get to that point. A ways to go. Sigh.

    I like that he’s taking the losing personally. Once he starts demanding the same dedication from his teammates that he demands from himself he will be the real leader on this team.

    I think GMC has been a “lead by example” type so far in his career but I think he’s ready to start putting the Fear of Dog in his teammates that he isn’t seeing the effort from

    I feel very good about this coming year and the players that are on-board with the Bucs right now. Plus, I am extremely happy with the comments and commitment of McCoy, Verner, Jackson, ASJ and several of the “new experienced defensemen.
    I feel very good because:
    1. Jameis going to bring a winning attitude right down to the wire in every game.
    2. The receivers and TE’s are going to be more dangerous this year with this new, experience OC to lead the way and get the most out of everyone.
    3. The defense sports some experienced vets in this system and that means everyone starts with knowledge of what it takes to be successful in this system.
    4. Everyone is really going to work hard. No ghosts, lame asses or would be pretend NFL starters. Just hard working, dedicated players that love the game and will give their all to make this team better.

    GMC sure does talk a lot. Sucks it took him this long to get mad about losing. I hope he gets so mad he actually sacks someone or causes a fumble in the 4th quarter to protect a lead. I don’t even care if he helps the qb up after tackling him. Just make a play to protect a lead.

    Lot of blown late leads by McCoys defense the last 2-3 years. Time to step up gmc.

    Yeah baby!!!!

    This year im not worried about blowing leads, we actually have a QB now who can put points on the board. The reason why we could never protect a fourth quarter lead, was the fact that we played “clock management” instead of putting these teams away for good. Dirk Koetter will open up this offense, and stay the course for 4 quarters, instead of 3 quarters, the running out the clock days are over. We need to attack early,often and always nonstop.
