Gerald McCoy “Demands Resources”

October 27th, 2016

gmc-0926So guess who was handed the defensive game ball Sunday from Bucs defensive coaches?

It was that popular, four-time Pro Bowler/fan punching bag Gerald McCoy.

Defensive coordinator Mike Smith shared this info today at One Buc Palace.

Smith said McCoy made his teammates better, showed no rust after returning from a calf injury and “demands resources” from opposing offense. Those resources Smith referenced are McCoy absorbing a load of attention in the trenches.

What a beast McCoy is!

Sunday would be one hell of a time for McCoy to put a game on his back and blow up with a few sacks. The Bucs are going to need defensive heroics to slow the Raiders offense. If they can’t get to the passer — Derek Carr has taken just 15 QB hits in seven games; Jameis has absorbed 51 through six games — then the Raiders are almost certain to rack up at 24 points.

    Everyone on these boards says that McCoy is easily replaceable and average at best.

    And who do you expect me to believe? The coaches and players that play w/ this guy on a regular basis or the geniuses that post on this board.

    Don’t worry Joe, there will be plenty of people in here soon who will tell us he didn’t deserve it and that all his plays were meaningless because he didn’t have a strip sack fumble recovered for a touchdown on the last play of the 4th quarter with the game on the line.

  3. Bucsfanman Says:

    Yeah celly! What the heck do those coaches and players know anyways?!!!

  4. DallasBuc Says:

    Sometime, anytime would be a good time to put a game on his back. As my old buddy NosBos says, “I’ll wait on it”!

  5. Chucklehead Says:

    Most of these fans are disgruntled because of his performance in the past few years.

    1. Hes been hurt a lot

    2. The entire defense has been crap. You cant expect a DT to take over a game when your own secondary is playing 10 yards off the line of scrimage and cant cover for spit.

  6. Chucklehead Says:

    But…. things is a changin’

  7. DB55 Says:

    He didn’t deserve it, his 1 play was meaningless. Now if he had a strip sack fumble recovered for a touchdown on the last play of the 4th quarter with the game on the line then maybe…lol

  8. Bucsfanman Says:

    ……and through the door steps DB55! Took you long enough!

    Im just here so I don’t get fined. Lol

  12. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Should we hold GMC to a higher standard……yes…..because of his high draft pick and contract…..but how high should that standard be?……..Warren Sapp/HOF high……perhaps not, That’s up each fan to decide.
    But you have to be at least ntellectually honest……his peers, teamates, competitors, coaches & most media believe he is really good. Room for improvement?……Sure, who doesn’t have that….LVD?, Jameis?

    Some posters lose credibility by discrediting his efforts when they are good.
    For me….I’d love it if our safeties played at his level.

  13. D-Rome Says:

    I’m in before the mouth breathers around here start claiming he doesn’t make enough splash plays. He’s one of the best in the NFL. DTs don’t typically make splash plays other than sacks and tipped passes which are stats he already excels at among DTs.

  14. unbelievable Says:

    LOL DB! Seriously tho

  15. DB55 Says:


    Just busting chops bro. He had a good game. Hopefully he can dominate on Sunday like youz say….

  16. Dave Says:

    I’ll keep saying it… if they ever get a double digit sack DE, McCoy will have 10+ sacks every year.
    Hopefully Ayers returning can help Spence as well.
    As fast as I can see they still need to draft another DE and WR and safety.

  17. Rolph Says:

    Db55._ I read your posts every day……..and……your such a troll. GMC is the anchor for this the team. Imagine how bad we would be without.

  18. ATrain Says:

    First off what do you McCoy sweater wears think the COACH will say about a guy the BUCS pay 100 million dollars too.. Please…

    Rolph the D Line looked pretty damn good two games ago with no starters…REMEMBER or where you watching your McCoy doll..

    Watch the game… McCoy plays hurt, McCoy is double teamed… NO CRAP what DT worth anything in the NFL is not double teamed..

    FOR 100 MILLION MCCOY should be GREAT not just good. No one is saying he cant play ball and is a good DT he is just not the SUPER STAR yall say he is…

  19. Bucsfanman Says:

    @DB55- Well played sir! Well played!
    @ATrain- So, you dislike him because he gets paid $100 million of NOT YOUR MONEY?!! Because, post after post that I’ve read say that he’s a good DT, this despite statistically being in the top 5 of course.
    I’ll never understand it. We are a better defense with him than without. If you can’t see that then, what were you watching ATrain? Your Michael Jackson Freeman doll?!!!!
    Go bore yourself with statistics if you want proof.

    All the teams with the best defensive tackles In the league suck… he no Atkins and Bengals suck.. suh and the dolphins suck.. McCoy and t he bucs suck… it’s pretty obvious you draft defensive ends as a priority…

  21. JMN Says:

    So he has a couple of good games a year, I’ll give him that. But the amount of money he makes, and a supposed pro-bowler, he needs to make plays every game. Be a game changer week in and week out.

  22. Buccfan37 Says:

    I figure GMC must be a part of an improving Bucs defence, not like he is going anywhere. I haven’t watched his play closely enough to rate his level of play. The battle over his effectiveness is entertaining at times.

    Liking the resurgence of Wil Gholston.

  25. SOFIERCE Says:

    GMC is not W.Sapp; warren’s time has passed and we all miss him. However, it’s GMC time plain and simple! This is our next warrior who has been putting in everything he has into the trenches-year in year out. This Warrior demands the attention of any aposing defenses every Sunday and twice on Thursday!

    He is our top player on Defense where you recognize it or not. When the ball is snapped, the play success hinders on what GMC does at that point; everyone else on defense is a supporting cast.

    Joe… if you had put this at the beginning of the article I would have stopped right then and there.

    When has this ever happened? Not that I expect that from a DT, but, but come on man.

  27. Ndog Says:

    For those of us that simply expect more of McCoy this is exactly the kind of game we want to see him make a major impact. So fingers crossed and we shall see.

    Now that’s just as realistic as you bagging Rachel Watson. Good one. I needed a laugh. #AuntGeraldineTheGoodGuy

    McCoy supporters have facts. The bashers just have emotions.

    Which do you think is more reliable? Case closed.

    This just in a nation wide survey has been completed and they determined Tampa Bay has the dumbest fan base in all of sports 31 other NFL teams would gladly take GMC and he would start from day one on any of them Me 13 is probably the only other Buc that can say that
