GMC: Jameis Is My Brother

January 6th, 2016

No rift with America’s Quarterback.

Of course, until we learn the full details, and we may never learn the full details, the stunning news of Lovie Smith being axed by Team Glazer this evening leaves all sorts of questions and speculation as to why.

Aside from the record under Lovie (second-worst of any Bucs coach), fans can point to many things. One is the concept that the locker room was split into factions, on one side stud defensive tackle Gerald McCoy — and in the other corner, America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston.

That is just nonsense! Says who? Says GMC.

One of the best defensive tackles in the game took to Twitter tonight to clear the air in the aftermath of Lovie’s firing. GMC said there is zero rift between him and Jameis and the two are part of a tribe of men trying to lead the Bucs out of the darkness.

‏@Geraldini93: And if you believe me and Jameis are beefing you’re an idiot. Stop believing everything you read!! That’s my brother!! Straight up!!

So there you have it. There is no rancor between Jameis and GMC. If you don’t believe GMC, then that is your call.

    This was the dumbest non-story ever. Can’t believe people are so stupid to actually believe this crap in the first place.

  2. unbelievable Says:

    Don’t think there’s any issue between them. Never really did.

    McCoy was thrust into leadership as the only start on the team. Now we have Jameis, McCoy can just worry about playing to the best of his ability.

  3. Buc1987 Says:

    That’s fine and dandy. Now McCoy follow your leader Jameis Winston to the playoffs.

    I guess GMC reads JBF!!!!! Was that tweet a shot at the Joe’s?????

    I called that Stroud stuff purely speculative…..I’m sure they both know its in their collective best interest to get along….

    Na na na na, hey hey-hey, goodbye
    Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye

    Here is one for you 87

    Ain’t no lovie in the heart of the city
    Ain’t no lovie in the heart of town
    Ain’t no lovie and it’s sure nuff a pity
    Ain’t no lovie cause you ain’t around

  8. Buc1987 Says:

    lol TBBF…I pondered that one for a bit too…

    We get along just fine. If anything, Joe has been a GMC defender. He knows that.

  10. Dave Says:

    Maybe Jo shouldn’t add fuel to that fire with speculation nor should some locals sports beat writers who claimed to know what is in GMCs head.

  11. Buc1987 Says:

    It breaks your heart in two, To know he’s been untrue
    But oh what will you do? Then he said to you
    There’s someone new We’re through We’re through
    It’s over It’s over It’s over

    It is possible GMC is a little jealous of Winston. GMC loves attention and for a few years he got all of it. Winston came in with a huge personality and people instantly gravitated toward him. Early in the season GMC constantly talked about how he wanted winston to not worry about being a leader and all that. I have no doubt Winston and GMC are great pals. But I’m sure GMC is a little jealous over how Winston burst on to the scene and stole GMC’s Thunder.

  13. Dave Says:

    You fans that are so happy about this firing are ridiculous. Take a look on Twitter, watch the NFL network, your Tampa Bay Buccaneers players are pissed and depressed, not one of them wanted this. You think Doug Martin’s re-signing back here? You think 4 coaches in 7 years makes free agents want to show up here?
    With glazier kids in charge stability does not exist and the team just keeps getting set back 2 years every time they step 1 year forward.

  14. Buc1987 Says:

    Well we thought were going to have a depressing boring offseason of in-fighting on JBF. I guess that goes out the window now.

  15. Buc1987 Says:

    Dave …name all these players?

  16. Buc1987 Says:

    Who are the players Dave?

  17. Buc1987 Says:

    Bowers and LVD…that’s all I see. Bowers?

  18. Trubucfan22 Says:

    It’s great to want continuity. But sticking with a losing coach that no one thinks highly of is not the right kind of continuity. We want a winning program. We don’t need a coach whose defense got arguably worse in year 2. I supported Lovie and defended to some degree because he was our coach. But the defense he is known for and was hired for is not what anyone should expect. Year 1 we can understand some hiccups. But this entire season was pretty pathetic for the defense. I understand it takes time to build something great. But you have to trust the architect building it. And quiet frankly not many people were confident in the direction of the team. As soon as you have doubts you need to move on. It sucks. I’m sure the owners and bucs fans wish Lovie earned the right be the head coach here. But sadly, he didn’t.

  19. Buc1987 Says:

    TruBuc…great points and ticket sales? What ticket sales? Fans would hang up on the operators.

    Then they should’ve played harder and won more games

    Simple as that

    Let’s get Chuckie back.

  22. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Kwon. Posted he was shocked. I thinking everyone, especially the players, are shocked it happened like this with no warning. And like the good stand up men they are, they are showing their support to their head coach.

    Notice how the players didn’t react this way when schiano was fired? And people wonder why schiano was fired.

    Dave….these are the players that got him fired…..they have no right to be depressed……they are responsible……think about it!!!

    Now shut up and follow the leader Aunt Geraldine!

  25. Trubucfan22 Says:

    You can’t keep a coach just because you want continuity, it’s gotta be someone worth the time. What if we gave Lovie 10 years of this franchise, with no division titles, no playoffs, no winning records. Well at least we stuck with a head coach for once. As fans we deserve better. Don’t you think?

  26. Buc1987 Says:

    Well I’m off for a very good nights rest my fellow JBFers. I should wake up with a smile on my face in the morning.

    Have fun. 🙂

    The players are sticking up for a friend. This is a business. They know this stuff happens. Lovie was not the right coach for a young team. I’m just glad the Tampa 2 will finally be gone!! And we would be stupid to pay Martin a ton of money to a guy who had a good contract year n did nothing the 2 years before that. Sims is a nice back n this drat n the next draft are loaded with studs. Running Backs r a dime a dozen. Keep that 30 mil for some new linemen on both sides of the ball n guys n the secondary. Is Eric Berry going to be a FA this year? We have like 50 mil in cap space. I’m glad Lovie won’t be here to waste it again.

    Joe can assure you that is a flat out incorrect statement, specifically the last phrase.

  29. Buc1987 Says:

    LOL Joe…notice how he didn’t come up with a list?

    Only on JBF.

    Okay G’night.

  30. Trubucfan22 Says:

    I don’t the players got Lovie fired. Lovie did a good enough job of digging his own grave. 17 weeks into the season and he was still trying to figure out which CBs he liked the most. As Joe posted earlier, his defense gave up the worst third down rates in the last 20 years. Sure the players play the game. But the coaches do have a big impact on the outcome of games.

  31. Big Marlon B Says:

    @ Buc1987

    McCoy, Lavonte, Kwon and Spence (probably even more, but those are the ones i saw) all Tweeted negative reactions after the news broke. most have been deleted by now.

  32. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Trust me…..the players got Lovie fired……game after game, penalty after penalty…..coming out flat….getting torched…..sure the HC is responsible overall….but if players play well….teams win….and teams that win retain their coaches….(except Lovie 10-6 in Chicago & Gruden 9-7 in Tpa)

  33. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    So, GMC isn’t an enemy to Winston. Just like I said yesterday. Idiots, all of you.
