GMC Is Dominant

July 3rd, 2015
Statheads love GMC.

Statheads love GMC

Rarely do three of the game’s best at a position leave college at the same time.

But damn, Joe is glad one of those, Gerald McCoy, is on the Bucs, thanks to former rock star general manager Mark Dominik.

McCoy is in an elite group with fellow 43 defensive tackles Ndamukong Suh and Geno Atkins — the best defensive tackles the statgeeks at Pro Football Focus have ever seen.

The difference? Three times Atkins has been in the playoffs. Suh? Twice. GMC? He’s still looking for his first playoff appearance. Not since his rookie season has GMC played on a winning NFL team.

Joe thinks it is high time the Bucs do something about this.

    Winners and losers. For some reason their are players that always seem to be in the right place at the right time, and there are those who don’t. GMC has never “taken over” or dominated for more than a game. Who knows why, but he lacks the “it” that Warren Sapp had. Just like people saying that Rusell Wilson does not deserve big $, what!? The team wins with Wilson, pay him. Lucky for us, Winston is a winner. Maybe his enthusiasm and leadership can negate all the negativity on our team and we can win.

    Love GMC. Hope that we dont waste his best years.

    Seahawks are about defense.

    Hey Cannonfire.
    Obviously you have never played Football in you life. GMC has had GARBAGE to work with and GARBAGE Coaching him for his entire NFL career yet he is still maybe The Best at his craft on a Horrible team
    Go Knit something or make me a dam sandwich.

    I have never made a comment on GMC. I read the yin and yang of opinions, yet I can’t come to a conclusion on how to judge his play. Call me baffled.

  6. DooshLaRue Says:

    Nice picture of GMC.
    It looks like he’s waiting for an opposing player to return the favor and help him up.
    ; )

    LMFAO!!! ^^^^^^^^^^

    Matt Miller rated Aaron Donald as the best DT in the NFL.

  9. bucsbedabest Says:

    Please do not give former rock star general manager Mark Dominik any credit for drafting GMC. GMC and Suh were considered the best DT in the draft and it was a no brainer to pick him. I remember I wanted the Bucs to trade Detroit both of our second round picks to move up and get Suh. As for the comment tat GMC never dominated for more than a game. You do not go to three consecutive Pro Bowls if you never dominate for more than a game. 2013 was his most dominating year when he recorded a PRP of 80. The hiighest score for a DT in the past decade. I would say that his performance clearly takes over and dominates. We are lucky o have an elite player of GMC caliber and it is time this year for him to how everyone the player he is when we make the playoffs this year.

    I’m still waiting for anyone of consequence to say GMC isn’t a great player. I’m trying to find any award he hasn’t received. I’m waiting to find one OC who doesn’t mention him first when discussing our defense. I’m pretty sure these people exist, because we’ve got a genius on this here website who swears he is the beneficiary of a flawed voting system. I mean, I’m sure with our huge national fan base, he only got voted to the Pro Bowl because he’s on such a popular, winning team. As for the All-Pros, obviously the powers that be have never watched him play. He was second team all pro last year, which according to some means he’s like a Pro Bowl alternate. As for landing #28, once again he’s the product of a flawed voting system, because not all the players vote. He probably payed the ones that did to put his name so high. I’m just waiting on any evidence that any of this nonsense is true. Then perhaps I will change my opinion.

    Way to burn the idiots Hawaiian! : ) Bucs fans are so clueless on what constitutes a great player. They credit Sapp but Sapp had very good DE’s playing with him. We’ve had squat. McCoy has done so much with so much less. If we get a good edge rush McCoy will be the best DT to ever wear a Bucs uniform.

  12. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Sometimes the stars simply need to align properly. Sapp had great DE’s as well as solid DT’s playing next to him.

    I thought McDonald had a good season last year considering…Melton…I think we now have some strong players up the middle to complement GMC.

    If Smith and the outside boys can provide edge rush GMC will be that much more effective.

    Could be that this is the season it all comes together from GMC thanks in no small part to the improved supporting cast around him.

    at Hawaiian
    Right on brother. Where is ray rice. O wait his foot is stuck in his big mouth. The only idiot who bad mouths McCoy. The hell with all the paid professional’s opinion

  14. Dougy balls Says:

    Sapp himself has said McCoy is better than he was

  15. Joe Says:

    Sapp himself has said McCoy is better than he was

    Yup. He told Joe that to Joe’s face last summer.

  16. Ray Rice Says:


    Sapp also said your boy needs to step up. The truth hurts doesn’t it? He’s a professional. He gets paid to perform no matter what. But since your probably unemployed and leeching from the state then you wouldn’t know anything about getting paid to perform a job.

    Thank you Mark Dominik for using the number 3 overall pick on someone who didn’t bust… I don’t think anyone else on this earth could have made such a brilliant selection…

    Mark Dominik, draft genius…

  18. Ray Rice Says:

    “But of his 9.5 sacks, eight happened in the first half and just 1.5 in the second half.”

    “McCoy has been quiet for the most part in the second half of games this year, something that needs to change in order for the Bucs to get back on the winning track and build some momentum heading into 2015.”

    And you two DUMFUX keep bringing up pro bowls and TOP 100. LMFAO Keep drinking his man juice. The only credible award is his 1st team AP selection. He earned that. Look up his response to being named second team AP. Even he acknowledges that it doesn’t mean $hit to be second team.

    Bragging about the bull$hit pro bowl and top 100 is like bragging because you got the shiniest turd in a pile of $hit. I can tell you the awards he doesn’t have. Defensive player of the year and a SB. When he gets those then holler at me. Till then STFU!

  19. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Ray Rice,

    So by your theory, no one on this team is worth anything? Why do you love Lavonte so much? Wouldn’t he fall into the same category? So we can’t talk until he wins a super bowl or defensive player of the year? OK, gotcha tough guy

  20. Ray Rice Says:

    Just because you have 5 good players on a team that went 2-14 doesn’t erase the fact that the overall team is $hitty. But through your eyes since the YUCS have the almighty #93 that doesn’t apply because he has pro bowls and top 100 nominations. So to answer your last question. NO. YOU don’’t say $hiit till he wins those two awards. Since you’re all about awards. LMFAO

  21. HawaiianBuc Says:

    @Ray Rice,

    What in the hell are you talking about? Through all your rambling and idiotic comments, I don’t even think you comprehend what you are saying. My point is the same as it has always been: it is dumb to criticize our best player (best players, which include guys like Jackson, David, Evans, and hopefully Winston), because they aren’t the reason we have sucked. I understand this team is bad, and I’m not happy with it. I’m not satisfied in any form with this team. But McCoy isn’t the problem. Period. If you can’t understand that, then we are just on different wavelengths.

  22. Buc-A-New Says:

    It is July 4th Weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    We should ALLLL be on the same wavelength………BBQing and drinking beer.

  23. Ray Rice Says:


    Happy 4th to you and you’re family. Enjoy the Artois, Modelo, Curveball, etc….whatever you drink.

  24. Buc-A-New Says:

    And to You and Yours Ray.
    God Bless Us All.

  25. Buc-A-New Says:

    And I drink mostly Bourbon but whatever you hand me at the Lake will most likely get consumed.
