Gerald McCoy Piles On Loafing Falcons

December 10th, 2015
Says Falcons gave up

Says Falcons gave up

Sunday’s now legendary 3rd-and-19 run by America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, had a lot to do with the pure quit in the Falcons.

Joe’s written about that, but it’s much more fun to hear it from Gerald McCoy.

McCoy hopped on the Buccaneers Radio Network last night and explained what he saw.

“Go back and look at the play and look at Jameis’ speed, and how he was playing, as opposed to look at the Atlanta Falcons and the speed they were playing at,” McCoy said. “They had thought he was down, guys walking around, jogging to him. Even when he started running again, guys were just jogging, ‘Oh, we’ll get him down.’ And Jameis was running for his life. You could just see the difference in how he was playing opposed to how the other team was playing. I mean, you just, we want it, man.”

Again, here’s video of the play. Former Bucs defensive end Adrian Clayborn was the lead quitter on the Falcons.

After an effortless showing like that, and if the Falcons lose their final four games, Joe wouldn’t be shocked if Atlanta owner Arthur Blank does something drastic.

    It’s so nice that it isn’t the Bucs that we are talking about loafing. James has turned the culture of the team for the better and has won me over. It feels good to be a Bucs fan again.

  2. Tampa Tony Says:

    Gmc saw the quit up close in person during Raheem’s last year, so he knows what he’s talking about

  3. LargoBuc Says:

    Not long ago that was us. Three people have changed that. In order of least to most, Licht, Lovie and of course Jameis. So glad we didnt bring back Clayborne. He was decent but showed little heart last Sunday. And is it any coincidence he was a starter the years they quit on Raheem (2011) and Schiano (2013). And the other two years he was on ir (great pick Mr. Dominik!)
    The future of this team is brighted than I seen in a long time. What a culture change. Congrats to Jameis for taking the bull by tthe horns at such a young age. Hardend vets like Mankins and VJax beleive snd it reflects on gameday. And congrats to Lovie for getting the players he needed to fulfil his vision of Buccaneer football. Same for Licht.

    Hows it feel Falcon fans!!!??? Get used to it, pals. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  5. Ray Rice Says:

    Aunt Geraldine knows a thing or two about loafing. Good thing our YUCS have THE MESSIAH. He can mask plenty of the team’s deficiencies. Including YOU #93.

  6. Elle Says:

    I don’t particularly like to see the Falcons as quitters. I’d rather see Jameis Winston as a special individual with an almost superhuman willingness to do what it takes to win. That play truly showcased who he is, not only as a QB on the field, but as a competitive man who will always provide his best effort, no matter what.

  7. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Ray Rice,

    You’re talk a big game. I bet you wouldn’t call him aunt anything to his face. It’s real easy to play a tough guy on the Internet. It’s a much different to be a man and say it man to man. Then again, with your screen name being Ray Rice, I would expect you to be a coward.

  8. ATrain Says:

    Captain “Taking Plays Off” should know all about Quitting in a game…

    Because he is a nice guy and has made some plays doesn’t make him a super star.. He would have been an average player on a good team..


  9. Buc Neckid Says:

    I would be careful about gloating about the Falcons Loafing.
    The BUCS did not run away with this game and the Falcons had an opportunity to come back and win at the end.
    What does it say about your team when you can only squeek by a team that is Loafing?

  10. The Buc Realist Says:

    I think some were talking “quit” and “loafs” at the beginning of this year for the Bucs!!! I don’t think GMC should be commenting on this at all!!!

  11. ATLBucsFan Says:

    Come on! The players more than likely thought the play was over and it took them a few seconds to react. Everybody in the stadium thought the play was over.

  12. Joe Cool Says:

    @Hawaiian Buc LOL you take the trolls to seriously. Get a life.

  13. D-Rome Says:

    I think some were talking “quit” and “loafs” at the beginning of this year for the Bucs!!!

    Right, and you were blaming the head coach for the effort on the field while at the same time singing the praises of what a great coach Dan Quinn is. I guess Clayborn loafing is Quinn’s fault too right?

  14. Clodhopper Says:

    Dear whiners,

    We are on the other side of the word quit for the first time in 5 years. Get your panties out their wad and enjoy it. What’s the point of winning if you don’t enjoy it?

  15. Gerald McCoy calls out Falcons for dogging it on Jameis Winston run | Larry Brown Sports Says:

    […] Falcons and the speed they were playing at,” McCoy told the Buccaneers Radio Network Wednesday, as transcribed by “That had thought he was down, guys walking around, jogging to him. Even when he started running […]

  16. Ray Rice Says:


    Just because I don’t agree with you in regards to Geraldine doesn’t mean I’m much less of a fan. Just because I’m not swinging off of #93’s di*k like you doesn’t mean I’m not rooting for the team. There is plenty to like about this year. THE MESSIAH, Koetter, Martin, Moore, Marpet, Smith, David…… The list goes on and on. Geraldine is not on this list in my opinion. He hasn’t done ANYTHING this year to make anyone say that he’s a game changer. 7 sacks yea I see that. How many sacks came with the game on the line? So calm down superman and stop running to your husband’s defense every time someone says something “bad” about him. He’s a big boy. He can take care of himself. In the meantime enjoy rooting for THE MESSIAH as he leads these young turks to a winning record. #THEMESSIAH #REALCAPTAIN #REALLEADER

    As Mom Said…If you don’t have anything good to say don’t say it…This
    will bite back..

  18. Walter Says:

    Man, I’ve never seen someone so hated before just for being a nice guy. McCoy produces with a smile on his face and people give him crap for it like they would prefer he was out in the streets tripping the blind and spitting in people’s faces. Unbelievable

  19. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Ray Rice,

    Obviously comprehension is a problem for you. I never said you weren’t a fan. I did, however, call you out because you know damn well you act like a tough guy on here but you wouldn’t dare call GMC a name to his face. That makes you a coward. It’s as simple as that.

    As for his sacks being at the end of games, he got 2 against Jax on the last drive. He also forced the bad throw by Ryan at the end of the Atlanta game. I don’t even recall JJ Watt making a ton of game-ending sacks. No matter what he does, you are going to criticize him, because you are the exact definition of a hater. I’m not sure if he didn’t sign your panties after a game or something, but you should really seek help. You’re damn near as bad as Realist.

  20. orlbucfan Says:

    Ray Rice,

    You named yourself after that defensive joker who played for the Ravens? Yeah, the gangbanger who ought to be in jail? Instead, we’re hearing all the HOF talk while ole jailbait smirks and laughs all the way to the bank. You sure are a “class” act.

    I come on here to laugh at all the whiners and phony fans. RR is a good example. GMC wouldn’t waste his time on such a loser. I’ve wasted enough as it is.

    Go GMC and the Mighty Bucs Sunday!! P.S.: I like the hairdo with the Buc red spot.

  21. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    Yep, and in McCoy’s case no matter what he does he’s going to be criticized. He’s been playing with a really bad shoulder injury all year, but instead of appreciating him gutting it out and playing for the team, they get upset because he’s not as productive as he could be. If he doesn’t play, he’s soft and not a real leader. ASJ sits out 9 weeks with a shoulder injury, and McCoy hasn’t sat out one. It’s an absolute joke. If I was McCoy, I wouldn’t sign one autograph or take one picture with anyone over the age of 15, because half the fans of this team are frauds. One of these days I really hope the fans can appreciate McCoy for everything he does for this team and city, on the field and off. Unfortunately, I have serious doubts as to whether that will happen.

  22. Sick of Lovie Says:

    Everybody thought there was a turn over recovered by the Falcons. What were they supposed to do, smash a quarterback when they thought the ball was dead and draw a 15 yard flag?

    They weren’t loafing on the two turn overs they got on us, that was some heads up football.

    I myself would rather think that they were giving it their all and we just whopped them at their best.

  23. Sick of Lovie Says:


    McCoy is a good player, but I think he is a victim of circumstance. Since he came in the league he has been lauded as the next Warren Sapp. He never said that, but the thats the mold people want him to squeeze into. So far, hes been solid and tough and inspirational. But, he has never been GREAT. Once again, not his fault.
    The problem is that a lot of fans bought into the hype and now they are pissed because he hasn’t come close to surpassing the legend of #99.
    This is ok with me. I appreciate him, i think he is more valuable that Sapp in many ways. Oh, and I don’t foresee any arrests, bankruptcy, or hookers in his future.

  24. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Sick of Lovie,

    Totally agree with every word you just said. On both posts.

  25. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    I think the loafing charge is way overrated, again it is a qb and they are to be treated with kid gloves and then again the rules in the NFL change like teh wind so who is to say a ref would not have said he was down which he looked to everyone that way, the bucs are not that far removed from being lit up by MM and we were all saying their was loafing going on after the major wright hit

  26. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I get the whole Warren Sapp comparison thing. I really do. We all want to re-live the glory years. I will also preface this by saying I love Lavonte David. I think he’s a great player, and I couldn’t be happier he’s on this team. However, I do not understand why he gets a pass for not being the next Brooks. He has been far from consistent this year, and he’s not the player #55 was. For me, neither has to be #55 or #99, but for so many others, he’s terrible if he’s not as good as Sapp. Sapp was probably the best 3 technique to ever play the game. Not to mention he had excellent teammates around him on all three levels of defense, as well as great coaches. The defense was still basically new at the time, and offenses were much further behind the curve back then. Teams didn’t spread the defense and get rid of the ball quick like they do now. It was a perfect storm for Sapp to be great, and our entire organization benefited. Times are different now. McCoy isn’t Sapp, but the league is different now. Would McCoy be as good as Sapp had he played under the same circumstances? It doesn’t matter, because the circumstances are different. Let it go. Appreciate him for being one of the 2 or 3 best players at his position (worst case he’s 2 or 3). Sapp is retired. He’s not walking through the door. McCoy isn’t going to stomp on people, and he isn’t going to cheap shot anyone. If you can’t deal with that, you should just you tube old Bucs games and forget about these Bucs.

  27. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    As for the loafing, I don’t see it as loafing either. I know that after the first hit, everyone in the stadium groaned. I was one of them. I actually turned my head away, because I was dreading the 50+ yard field goal that was upcoming. I gave up on the play. Next thing you know, I see Jameis running, with very little crowd reaction. Nobody knew what the hell was going on. Everyone thought he was down. It was a weird moment unlike any that I’ve ever seen. This is a QB that everybody thought was down, and nobody thought he had the ability to get up and keep running. Everyone was shocked, including the Falcons. You can look at their body language and see that quite easily.

  28. Ray Rice Says:


    Here we go again. How can you even talk about panties when you’re the one acting like a little bi*tch because Geraldine is getting “hated” on. LMFAO. If his production makes you happy so be it. That’s your prerogative. As far as his off field work goes… I can truly say he is a great ambassador of the Tampa area. My problem with him is his game. And if you want to keep hanging off of his sack for sub par performances then keep doing it. Take a step back and put down the XBOX controller for a minute. You’re obsession for this guy is scary.

  29. Ray Rice Says:


    “You named yourself after that defensive joker who played for the Ravens? Yeah, the gangbanger who ought to be in jail? Instead, we’re hearing all the HOF talk while ole jailbait smirks and laughs all the way to the bank. You sure are a “class” act.

    WTF are you even talking about? You sound like a dum fuk. The only time you wasted was everyone elses by writing that dumb a$$ $hit. First, you jump into a conversation that doesn’t include you. Then you top it off with mistaking Ray Rice with Ray Lewis. Next time you post something make sure you have your facts straight dumb fuk. The sad part is that it probably took you 20 mins to write that. In addition, after submitting it you probably felt you got me good. LOL And you have the audacity to call someone a phony fan. Ata boy ORLBUC! BTW You just won the dum fuk of the week award.

    @Hawaiian and @RayRice

    I think you both made some valid points as did SickofLovie,

    As Bucs fans (That we can all agree on) McCoy is here to stay there is no changing that, but I am seeing hope with Jason Licht finally bringing in that Defensive End that will draw attention and hopefully get McCoy those one on one matchups that will give him the opportunities to be Sapp like in his production on the field. Yes, @Rayrice, I get frustrated when McCoy helps opposing players up off the ground, I want McCoy to be a one man wrecking machine (In the mold of past Raider Greats) he has shown flashes of this but nothing on a Warren Sapp level. Still recall Sapp yelling to a reporter right after a game “It take two to block me” which in other words freed up Simeon Rice to one on one matchups and either QB pressure, Hit or Sack. The future is looking bright. GO BUCS

  31. Ray Rice Says:


    “The future is looking bright.”

    Yes it does. And that’s all that matters. Hopefully, we can all drink a cold beverage of choice after THE MESSIAH’S first playoff win this season.

  32. LargoBuc Says:

    Ray Rice, its just that your take on Mccoy goes past criticism. Its borderline obsessive. And you play it off like Hawaian is the obsessed one, but it seems you dislike him more than Hawaian likes him.
    As for me, I am kinda in the middle. He’s a good player. Pro Bowls and being named all pro, being #28 on the NFL top 100 two years in a row suggest he is more than just good.
    What exactly do you mean when you call him “soft”? Is it his demeanor? Alot of fans say his sacks arent clutch because they arent in the fourth quarter or on third down. I say name a defensive tackle considered “great” that does pile up sacks in the instances. There arent any. A sack is a sack. No one ever discredits a dt making a play and says oh, that wasnt at a critical time, he sucks! Do you expect his plays to be flashy (?) because how many dt’s consistently make flashy plays? I guess JJ Watt did some last year, but he also lined up at end. Im just curious as to what your seeing that most arent.

  33. Evo Says:

    Glad I’m not the only one to say it. Mccoy needs to shut up. I remember 2 or 3 Atlanta games when his bucs had already quit. 2 with him on the field.

  34. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Ray Rice,

    I defend him because he doesn’t have a voice on this board to defend himself. Once again, you are too scared to say anything to his face. I have defended the likes of Jameis, Lavonte, Lovie, and many others before. You are flat out wrong about McCoy, but as LargoBuc said, your level of hate appears to be personal. You ask for when he made a huge play, I give you examples, yet you completely ignore and/or discount those. It’s as if he has to meet your criteria to be considered great. Who are you? You’re a nobody. You’re nothing to anybody. Your opinion is worthless, but you are calling out the man’s character, and he has no voice to defend himself. If you are half the man you act like, then say it to his face. We all know you won’t, because we all know you are a clown. His teammates respect him. His opponents respect him. His coaches respect him. His opposing coaches respect him. Warren Sapp respects him. The overwhelming majority of the media respects him. So you not respecting him means jack sh!t in this world.

  35. Piratic Says:

    @Ray Rice: Enough already.

    Hawaiian Buc acts like a man. You act like a child; the XBOX comment further proves it. If you have problems with #93’s game, you’re entitled to that opinion, even if it’s an opinion that runs contrary to quite a number of other people, people whose opinions are not merely given without solicitation on a fan website, but instead by people who are considered experts, that is, paid professionals.

    Posters like you, and the handful of others like you, contribute nothing, all the while relentlessly diminishing the positive. You are a cancer.

  36. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    For the record, I don’t play video games, nor do I play fantasy football, but nice try. I did own a Nintendo and could whoop your arse in Tecmo Bowl. It shows exactly how ignorant and how poorly you judge people – almost as bad as you misjudge talent. Now you go ahead and draft up your next tough guy post and flex those big internet muscles. You’re really good at that.

  37. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Just heard the perfect response from Steve White about McCoy. I’m going to quote it:

    “A lot of people need to get the hate out their heart. Plain and simple. You’re still hating on Gerald Mccoy? You don’t have anything better to do with your life? Really? One of the best players in the league, not on the team, in the league, several time pro bowler and is great in the community, and you still have people going out of their way to take shots at the kid. It’s just amazing to me and in some respects I feel like some of these fans don’t even deserve Gerald McCoy. Did they not notice how much we blitzed on Sunday, something we don’t normally do? Did they not put 2 and 2 together and figure out we had to do that, because we couldn’t get a pass rush with our front 4 most of the game, especially in the second half. I’m just really sick and tired of these people looking for something to complain about. This team won a game on Sunday – shut up and enjoy it!”

    Pretty much sums it up.

    Get a life, Hawaiian.

  39. Ray Rice Says:


    “I defend him because he doesn’t have a voice on this board to defend himself.”

    Awwwwwe. How cute. Trying to justify your obsession for this guy is pretty dammmm funny. Your fake a$$ care for his feelings is pretty sad. Who made you the Jim Rome of this message board? Get the fuk outa here with your fake a$$. NO ONE cares about your feelings or his. Tell your man to step his game up and you need to grow some nuts. Funny you say you defend him because he doesn’t have a voice. LMFAO. He has something bigger than a voice. Think about it dummy. He plays in the NFL. Bigger platform than this message board. He has the biggest opportunity to get heard nationally every week. Unfortunately, he stays silent when given the opportunity on the field.

  40. K2 Says:

    I think Atlanta’s players just thought that James was down. If the would have jumped on him after he was down they would received a 15 yard penalty. I think as a team that is just starting to get our act together..we should be very careful about criticizing other teams.

  41. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Ray Rice,

    You still have yet to contribute anything to the conversation except trying to be an internet tough guy. That only works in person, although I do know some people that are terrified of clowns. You just don’t get it.

  42. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Joe Cool,

    Why are you even getting involved? Why do you care whether or not I have a life or not? Aren’t you a doctor as you claimed the other day? Don’t you have better stuff to do than worry about my life?

  43. Ray Rice Says:


    Don’t you have better $hit to do? Instead of worrying about the way I talk about your man crush Geraldine. You act like you’re the moderator on this site. LMFAO. Well guess what?… You ain’t $hit! You want to worry about peoples feelings become a psychologist.

  44. LargoSamIM Says:

    I aree with you, Geraldine !….but a word to the wise…. Let Sleeping Dogs Lie”

  45. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Ray Rice,

    Nope, I’ve got nothing better to do. What’s your excuse?

  46. godzilla13 Says:

    At times this site turns into a one-upmanship, prima donna, soap opera of the attempt to gain a feeling of superiority over another person by very temperamental people who go on and on with an inflated view of their own talent or importance..

  47. Ray Rice Says:


    My excuse? I’m bored. LOL. With or without Geraldine 7-6 here we come. TAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
