Eddie Goldman Talks Jameis The Pro

Jameis Winston felt Bears DT Eddie Goldman

The Bears are all pumped up about the season they got from their rookie defensive tackle Eddie Goldman, the pride of Florida State University and the No. 39 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Goldman (4 1/2 sacks) faced his college teammate and friend America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, in the Bucs’ final home game. And Goldman talked to Joe about the experience.

Joe wanted to know Goldman’s take on how Jameis looked as a professional compared to his college days — and compared to other NFL quarterbacks.

“He has a confidence that allows him to be a good quarterback. That was clear in college. That’s what I expected to see up here in the pros, and you see every bit of that across from him [in the Bears-Bucs] game,” Goldman said. “I know I caught him in Week 16, but looks like some of the experienced veterans I played against this year. He’s always fired up in the huddle, always loose and dancing or whatever.”

Yeah, Jameis haters might claim Goldman is just saying nice things for his good friend. For those angry types, Goldman told Joe that he and Jameis are not that close and hadn’t been in touch since draft day.

    Sure would be nice to see one of our DT take down the QB on a regular basis. To bad the QB can lay the ball down, tie hie shoes, pick it up and still complete a 30 yard pass.

    Seeing as though our DT had 8.5 sacks with a torn rotator on one shoulder and a broken hand on the other side, I don’t think DT is the problem. But then again, I know that doesn’t fit the narrative.

    No article is ever safe from the GMC haters

    @ Hawaiian
    No it does not fit. But you will figure it out someday. How did that winning that 2 in a row prediction go and getting over the hump? Go a head and blame it on Kwon.

  6. R.O. Says:

    Then why did you call then “friends” in the intro? Using that term loosely? How about ex- teammates?

    Literally no idea what you are talking about.

    The Bucs have an all-pro at DT and these @#@# think DT is a need area because they don’t like that McCoy doesn’t go out and kick QB in the groin after a play is over. Probably more idiots “fans” from the northeast, that’s generally the trend with these people.

    My biggest problem with GMC this year was seeing him on the Jumbo-tron in the Giants games chatting up during a TO when the game is still on the line. His teammates were huddled up and this dude is having a pleasant conversation. The game wasn’t over till the Giants made the final field goal. To be in RJ full of Giants fans singing Lets go Giants. I lashed out in anger. McCoy is a talented player, but he has not gotten the most out of his talents. He was forced into a role of vocal leader and this is clearly not one of his strong points. As long as he is a Buc I will cheer for him to do well.

  10. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    If that’s your biggest issue with McCoy, then everything is great. There are a lot of players that are like that. Players are different. It’s like Joe Montana talking about John Candy during his game winning drive in the Super Bowl. Some people are just wired differently, and they handle things differently. The worst thing would be for McCoy to do something that’s not him just to try to please fans. He is who he is, and he’s been a pretty damn good player. His injuries greatly reduced his impact this year, but that doesn’t take away from who he is. Nobody on this team cares more than McCoy about winning, and that includes Jameis (they both really really really want to win). However, you and others really have to get over the fact that they are not always going to act and react the way you want them to.

  11. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I’m just waiting for the first person to use the classic “McCoy gets sacks in meaningless situations” argument. I really love that one.

  12. Couch Fan Says:

    Fan boys “really love” any reason someone has for not liking there man crush.
    McCoy the best DT in the league when he has studs all around him. Invisible any other time…

  13. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Couch Fan,

    When exactly has McCoy had studs all around him? It’s amazing that he’s a 4 time pro bowler, 2 time all pro, ranked a top 40 player by his peers,yet he did it all while being invisible. You should be a scout, because you are obviously seeing something that almost everyone else doesn’t.

    @ Joe happy new year and thanks for the diligent updates! Dude I really would like your take on Saban as a coaching possibility… Can we get him? Do we want him?

  15. Joe Says:

    Saban as a coaching possibility

    First, thanks for the kind words.

    Pass. And guessing Glazers still burned by another college hardass (Schiano).

  16. softastussieMcCoy93 Says:


    Saban is a hardass with the hardware. I was thinking last night it’s noway that Saban stays in Alabama for 3 more seasons. He will get one more go in the NFL. I’m not saying I want him for the Bucs, but he will get another shot.

    Two things I’m having difficulty comprehending…

    1.) Why do we still fee the need to defend #3? Too many here are still stuck back in last year’s draft debate. It’s over..it’s been decided..and most importanly #3 has proven all of his backer correct! As Tiny Tim couldn’t wait to point out I was one of the largest supporters of LOTS of due diligence. #3 scared me..off field not on…and not so much the rape ALLEGATIONS…but the sheer number of events 87 convinced me that was just immaturity…#3 has backed up 87’s contention. What is left? Really! Does he have areas that can improve..or course..but does anybody doubt that #3 is the real deal?

    2.) Saban? An awesome COLLEGE coach. But aside from the debate of whether we would want him or not…I do not but I understand those who do…
    WHY in the world would this job appear desirable to Saban. Again $$$ are irrelevant!!! TOTALLY! He’s fabulously wealthy, he has a job for the rest of his life at somewhere between 6-10 million annually. He has total control at Bama and he has built the beast of college football!!! He give that up for what? His ego? The challenge of proving his failure at Miami was an aberration? And IF he was motivated to cme back to the NFL why wouldn’t he look first to NYC?
