GMC Still A Leader

August 13th, 2016
Still influential.

Still influential.

Well now, Joe has found firewood for those who like to traffic in intrigue, suspense, conspiracy and drama.

It seems Gerald McCoy is still a team leader.

Last year, the anti-GMC rabble was convinced GMC had his feelings hurt and toes stepped on with the arrival of America’a Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston. The anti-GMC rabble even tried to connect invisible dots to suggest GMC checked out mentally because his ego was bruised by Jameis.

Some even wrote stories the two were at heads causing friction in the locker room. Everything Joe had seen and heard suggested this was strictly fiction.

Last month, GMC held a press conference and he stated he passed the torch to Jameis. It’s his team, GMC said, after the two had an offseason sitdown.

Dirk Koetter has since raved about how beastly GMC has been and how he has set a tone and standard in training camp for defensive teammates to follow.

So with all of this in mind, Joe was startled to see an opening scene in a cool video shot by It showed GMC making an impassioned pregame speech just before kickoff Thursday night in Philadelphia.

And who stood right behind GMC as he rallied the troops, nodding his head in approval? Jameis.

So for those that think GMC and Jameis cannot get along or are at odds personally or professionally, this video strongly suggests otherwise.

    There is nothing wrong with having multiple leaders…..they all bring something different to the table…..GMC, Jameis, Kwon, Vjax, McDonald & now Ayers….
    The more the merrier.

    “and now Ayers”. I’m excited about the possibility of GMC blowing up…of Noah Spence finally being that edge rusher….but I’m very excited about what Ayers has brought to this team….

    We all want to win…can’t win them all…but what you can do is absolutely compete in them all.

    I want the Bucs to be the kind of team other teams do not look forward to playing. After the game…win lose whatever…the other team will KNOW they’ve been in a real contest. Those are the kind of memories I’d love to plant in opposing team’s lockers…especially in our division where two games a year will separate the…..I’d say the Ayers from the typical player. He admits he comes to the game piiiisssedd off. Great!

    This has already set a different pace in the trenches during this camp. It’s going to be awesome for both of our lines.

    There’s a difference between being THE leader and being A leader. IMO GMC was no good at being THE leader but will thrive as A leader. Some guys are good number twos but not good number ones. And there nothing wrong with that.

  5. The Buc Realist Says:

    Sounds more like middle management then “leader”. But hey, If he takes orders from the top and follows them who cares!!!! The word “leader” maybe thrown around too much I have never seen so many “leaders” on a team!!! The Leader to me is when the Bucs are up by 3, late in the 4th quarter, who defense rallies the troops then!!!!!

  6. Buccfan37 Says:

    So Winston has elevated GMC’s team leadership level by Jameis taking the top spot leading the Bucs. That’s a positive result.

    Here is some firewood for you Joe. I watched the Buccaneers v. Eagle’s game and saw Noah Spence come of the end like flash. Then McCoy ran into Spence preventing Spence form getting a sack.

  8. joeblockedlme Says:

    McCoy did not pass the torch. Winston took the torch. It is a good thing that McCoy is doing what Winston tells him to do.
