June 5th, 2016

gerald mccoy 0814If you need to give your confidence and drive a boost, then it’s hard to go wrong with one of the many inspirational Muhammad Ali videos found on YouTube.

Gerald McCoy and Mike Evans know this well.

Evans showed off his Ali tattoo on Twitter yesterday, after the boxing legend passed away late Friday. He even explained to the Tampa Bay Times why Ali has been one of his primary inspirations for years.

Last summer, McCoy mentioned that he studied Ali’s training and his brash, motivational speeches. Joe asked McCoy for more detail on his fascination with Ali, and McCoy’s answer is below, via exclusive video.

    Did Ali ever say he wanted to have fun or help an opponent up off the mat?
    No……didn’t think so.

    Dooshlarue…I was waiting for someone to say it.

    I can’t think of anything McCoy learned from Ali about motivational speeches.

  3. Buccfan37 Says:

    I wonder if Marpet was named after Ali.

    Should say GMC talks…. Period!! That’s all he does!!

    GMC, you can’t be a gentlemen on the football field, you gotta have that killer instinct. If you wanna be a gentlemen off the field, that’s your right, but never on the field.

  6. Dooshlarue Says:

    Maybe we can talk Jeff Spicoli into taking GMC’s Z28 Camaro out for a disastrous joy ride before we play Lincoln……err…… I mean Atlanta.
    Maybe then he’d play with some fire…..

    “I’m 7’2 but I never felt taller than when standing in the shadow of Muhammad Ali”- Kareem Abdul-Jabar…

    Audio is horrible and easily corrected with some parametric EQ and a bit of compression. If you ever need an audio editor that can eliminate that annoying wind, or eliminate background noise, and make his voice clean, clear, and distinct for a minimal fee and a very fast turn around send me a PM.

    Can the so called fans that constantly trash the best flu mean the Bucs have had the past 10 years, the perennial pro bowler, the man coaches rave about, the DT peers constantly vote as a top DT

    BUT hey…. You idiots keep trashing him because you know best

  10. Dave Says:

    “Flu mean”??

    Should have read- D Lineman

    And after “vote as a top DT…” I typed – just please stop.

    Not sure what happened there. The point stands, everyone with any knowledge of football knows how good a player he is. Yet we have some so called fans that trash him every year. Ignorance is bliss I guess.

  11. Buccaneers Says:

    Worst comments I have read. Giving homage to the great Ali and it’s taken as an opportunity to bash McCoy? Disrespectful. Time and place for everything.

  12. Mike Johnson Says:

    Man…McCoy pays homage to a great athlete and in grand fashion..Buc fans bash him? Wow guys, you can certainly do much better than that. And I’ll add my commentary whether you like it or not.. Muhammed Ali is considered the GOAT (greatest of all time) Not just because of his boxing skills. But for what he stood for. How many of you? How many would sacrifice 3 to 4 yrs of your prime earning career days for your beliefs? The man will forever be an ICON. Whether a lot of it or not. Ali caught my attention during my younger yrs when he said, I got nothing against no Viet Cong. No viet cong ever called me a N.. nough said.
    GO BUCS!
