Fourth Consecutive Pro Bowl Nod For Gerald McCoy; Doug Martin Returns For Pineapple

December 22nd, 2015


A couple of Bucs are headed to Hawaii, and two more are alternates for the NFL’s all-star show at the Pro Bowl.

Fans, coaches and players voted Doug Martin and Gerald McCoy back to the Pro Bowl, the NFL announced tonight. Each group has a one-third say. Martin and McCoy are shown above horsing around at the Pro Bowl following the 2012 season, the first appearance for each of them.

This year, McCoy earns his fourth consecutive nod, but he didn’t play last year due to injury. Martin returns for his second honor.

Lavonte David and Logan Mankins were named alternates. David has never been named to the game. Mankins made six consecutive trips before arriving in Tampa before the 2014 season.

    Congrats to the boys!

    Cue the McCoy hate in 3.. 2.. 1..

  2. Vincente Says:

    I only care about the all pro team. Popularity contest are very unpopular to me.

  3. ndog Says:

    McCoy in the Probowl shows how much of a joke that game is and just confirms that people that vote on this simply do not watch the games. This only angers me because it let’s McCoy believe he had a good year and doesn’t reinforce that he needs to get much much better. Again I am rooting for McCoy but this is bad news for him and our Bucs.

    I only voted for one of the Buccaneers that made the pro bowl.

  5. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    New WR Evan Spencer gets to play this week…on ST. Hope they try him in passing game too.

  6. Buccfan37 Says:

    Who even watches the Pro Bowl? Congrats to McCoy and Martin for the honor.

  7. Bucs Nihilist Says:

    Who cares…what is the point? Is “bucs realist” a douche? Probably, but what does it really mean? Life….what a conundrum. Go bucs?

    I remember that Freeman disaster MNF game with Minnesota and the Giants, and it was a terrible matchup like 2-5 versus 1-6, the game was abysmal and there was a World Series game on. MNF outrated by a few million viewers

    People watch the Pro Bowl because it’s still football even if it’s not really good football. And for gambling of course.

  9. OneLove Says:

    Congrats to GMC and the Douginator!! I feel so bad for the rest of our team. This team is FULL of pro bowlers that are victims of bad coaching.. If only we hired Dan Quinn when we had the chance!!! *SOBS*

  10. Espo Says:

    I don’t watch that crap but I’m glad they made it. The last time I watched, there was an all Buc backfield. Dilfer, Dunn, and Alstott on the field at the same time. Who would’ve thought that would ever happen.

  11. Elle Says:

    Agreed with those who said that it’s just a popularity contest. Actually, it’s a farce, that’s what it is. Still, congrats to our players getting in. Both are good players. Good, not great. Want to get in the postseason? Well, let’s acquire a few more great players, please.

    I voted for McCoy to go to the probowl because he is a Buccaneer-not because he played well. He sucks. I do not care if he goes to 20 probowls; he sucks.

  13. NCBuc Says:

    Not sure on GMC, but DM was a given. DM has risen from the ashes and became what I thought he could be. After the 1st season I bought a signed TB ball from him. I just hope he’s around long enough to make me happy I purchased it!

  14. NCBuc Says:

    Oh and OneLove…….. This team has a few more if coaching could do its job!

  15. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    My goodness some of you just love to whine and complain. Congratulations to both guys, and hopefully Lavonte will get in.

    As for the Pro Bowl, all those who complain about it have the wrong idea of the game. It’s supposed to be a fun game, not one where they are trying to tear each other’s heads off. Complaining about the game is like complaining about the competitiveness of a Harlem Globetrotter game! If you’ve ever actually been to a Pro Bowl game before, it’s an absolute blast. Take the game for what it is – an exhibition.

  16. I know why Says:

    shame on all you “fans” who think Gerald Sucks. You have no idea what a football player is and does. Sacks haven’t and don’t ever tell the entire story. Remember the coaches and players account for 66% of the vote and tampa bay fans that don’t appreciate him, well, one day down the road I hope you change you mind.

  17. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    The Pro Bowl is an honor….sure, its somewhat a popularity contest… what?

    I think they got it right with our Buc players……It won’t take a whole lot from Kwon & Evans….perhaps Marpet to get there next year…..when Jameis makes it….we will go deep into the playoffs….I predict 2017.

  18. Ndog Says:

    How many times do I have to say I DON’T CARE ABOUT SACKS? But I do care about making a freaking impact on the game in a positive way. He just doesn’t make a difference and was the freaking#3 overall pick. How can anyone be happy about what he does or doesn’t do for this team. And for those of you that want too bring up the run game, simply take a look at the Falcons game. No McCoy and the Falcons still couldn’t run the ball. He makes no difference and now he is saying he had had a torn rotator cuff since week two. Well that is another problem he is always hurt and can’t be effective when not playing or ineffective.

  19. Mike Says:

    Doug Martin, not good enough to sign to a long term deal… Now he’ll probably go get paid elsewhere,

  20. Lefty Says:

    2 pro bowlers and 2 alternates with the piece of crap schedule the Bucs played, you sure as hell think they’d be in the thick of a playoff hunt. But nooo The Lovemaster STILL has some cleaning up to do. He is a clown a kin to good Ol Raheem.. The beat goes on. Team Glazer please please please hire a president of football operations, and then spectate-you’re obviously doing something very wrong with our beloved team…

  21. Ray Rice Says:

    Aunt Geraldine making the PB is a FUKN joke. Yet some still think PB voting isn’t flawed.

  22. Lovie's Basement Says:

    all of you are a bunch of idiots….especially given the news that Gerald played with a torn rotator cuff this year (and a broken hand). I think what he’s done is an amazing feat. And still 4th in the sack count for DT’s. And he didn’t say a thing about it until now. Didn’t use it as an excuse. Continued to line up week after week. You people are fools!!!

    oh, and Ian Beckles can kiss my a$$

  23. JMN Says:

    At this point Gerald McCoy is just a name. He makes very little impact during the game and half the time I don’t even know if he is playing or not. McCoy will go on the sideline with an injury and with his replacement I notice no difference at all, oh, and the replacement makes far less money and was not the #3 overall draft pick.

  24. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Nearly all of the trolls showed their faces here. Wish I could ban people…or at least click an ignore button. Ah, remember when the Bucs BB had that function? Those were the days.

  25. 813bucboi Says:

    glad to see doug make it…now resign the man ASAP…GO BUCS!!!

  26. Erik with Clean Athletics Says:

    Doesn’t McCoy get any bonus points from you jokers for playing 80% of the season with a torn rotator cuff and still being somewhat disruptive?

    Next year we’ll have alot more guys in the PB….

    Winston, Martin, Marpet, Evans (50/50), LVD, McCoy, Kwon, & maybe more…

  27. BuccoBill Says:

    Some people are as clueless as a rock. 2/3 of the vote are players and coaches. If you think the 1/3 fan vote got GMC into the pro bowl you really are an idiot. So, what got GMC voted in are most likely the people who play against him and who game plan against him. But of course, they don’t watch football and have no idea what they’re talking about. Get a clue!

  28. BuccoBill Says:

    I think Marpet should have gotten a pro bowl nod.
