Talks turnaround.

Talks turnaround.

Want to know what and why and how the Bucs beat the Seahawks, a game so shocking Joe still thinks he may be dreaming? Bucs stud defensive tackle Gerald McCoy explained.

In talking with Deion Sanders of NFL Network, GMC said the power that fueled such a shutdown of a top-tier team originated from within.

Deion Sanders: Who saw this coming? I don’t think anyone in the studio picked the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Seattle Seahawks, let’s be honest. But you guys had to believe in something you saw within the week or on film.

Gerald McCoy: Absolutely. We believed in us. You know, you did it for a long time. Obviously, you’ve got the gold jacket so you know how it goes, man. It doesn’t matter what the outside world says. You have to believe inside the building. As long as you believe in yourself, it don’t matter who you are talking to or what happens. If you believe in yourself, you can make it happen.

GMC also discussed the recent turnaround of the team’s fortunes from being alley-beaten by the Dixie Chicks on national TV at the Den of Depression, to a stunning three-game winning streak that included victories over two division leaders.

In so many words, GMC said each member of the team did serious soul-searching after getting slapped around by the Dixie Chicks. The full interview can be viewed here.

    Ugh why keep that stupid McCoy guy around when we can sign 2 marginal players that may not even start for his insanely reasonable $13 million annual salary?

    @lord Cornelius

    What stats do you expect out of a defensive tackle? What defensive tackle would you rather have?

    Yeah sorry A’train I’ve been on the comments too much lately and kind of losing it with the GMC hatred people.

    Very happy with the player, his salary, & production.

    To some that means I (or others) think he is the best DT of all time or something. No one in here is ever really touting him as the best DT we’ve had; or even #1 in the league. But the trolls act like that is what people are saying. One of the weirdest phenomena i’ve seen over the years

    Amen! It comes from within. Thank god too! If they listened to half of what is said here we would’ve traded GMC, LVD, and Conte for a box of Cheerios!

  11. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Terrible day for the GMC haters.
