Pro Bowl No. 5 For Gerald McCoy

December 20th, 2016

Mccoy2014Gerald McCoy was missing from Sunday’ night’s box score, but he’s still a national football treasure.

McCoy was named to the Pro Bowl for the fifth consecutive year tonight.

Without official confirmation, Joe will say comfortably that McCoy is the first Tampa Bay Pro Bowler to play for three different head coaches and four defensive coordinators.

Geno Atkins of the Bengals leads all defensive tackles with 7 1/2 sacks. McCoy, Aaron Donald and Leonard Williams are tied at seven sacks, and they each have two forced fumbles. Atkins has none.

The Pro Bowl honor is determined by fan voting (McCoy never gets a lot of those), coaches voting and player ballots.

The McCoy haters and detractors won’t like this, but No. 93 is deserving.

Congratulations, Gerald.

  4. Jay Smith Says:

    Garbage!! With garbage time sacks…

  5. ElioT Says:

    Pro Bowl should be based on impact not talent or popularity.

    I wouldn’t kick McCoy off the team but dude is waaayyyyy over rated.

  6. NCBuc Says:

    Yep and tmax would cut him! Our should be new GM!

  7. Ndog Says:

    So he makes it and Brate doesn’t. That should tell you all you need to know about this joke of a game.

  8. tmaxcon Says:

    pro bowl is meaningless voiting process is a joke… it’s a discredit to players like sapp, lynch, brooks and barber who actually EARNED their pro bowl births.

  9. Lamarcus Says:

    Agree w Ndog. That’s why I don’t do pro bowl. McCoy over Brate??? Mccoy over Marpet??? Mccoy over Winston??? Pro bowl is a joke.

  10. Lamarcus Says:

    I’ll add mccoy should never ever do a pre game speech. Ever.

  11. Lamarcus Says:

    And after the Dallas game… he should be in NO bowl not even in Las Vegas Bowl no new Mexico bowl. Not even a toilet bowl. And yes I’m a hater cuz I watch him play.

  12. Rrsrq Says:

    Name 2 defensive tackles better than McCoy in the NFC. This is a funny town, they discredit their own players. You think Dak is being discredited and there is no way he is better than Brees who didn’t make it, ijs, smh, imo…

  13. Amit Patel Says:

    not for nothing.. we all know that most of his sacks come in early game early down plays.. but more importantly lets talk about QB pressures Geno Atkins is tops in this at 33 hurries.. next DT up is Aaron Donald has 27 hurries.. Gerald comes in ranked 8th with only 15 hurries… this also means his QB hits number would be equally as low.. arguably this is more important to overall greatness as a DT then sacks would be.. All he has going for him is his get off, no real moves to make it past the Oline… just my thoughts

  14. Ndog Says:

    Amit can you really say you think he played well on Sunday?

  15. Amit Patel Says:

    just incase anyone was wondering.. in terms of tackles for loss DTs only.. #1 Aaron Donald 16 tackles for loss.. #2 Geno Atkins with 12 tackles for loss… Gerlad comes in ranked at #24 among DTs with a measly 5 tackles for loss.
    Just not any real impact, sacks at irrelevant times dont equal 90+ million or whatever it is.

  16. Amit Patel Says:

    Ndog, I dont think he really did anything on sunday.. his statline was a zero across the board. he has to do more then that

  17. Lamarcus Says:

    We didn’t play well on Sunday.

    Name 2 dt that’s better?? U can’t cuz the dt class is mediocre in the nfL. I don’t discredit Mccoy just fell out of love w him. That game on Thursday night vs falcons 56 to 14 loss and just watching Mccoy sit there and do nothing. He been on some of the worst defenses I ever seen. What this team would be out Winstons leadership. That’s what we needed the most and we got it from a 21 year old rookie. McCoy is overrated. He like I do my job now do yours type of player. That’sy reality on Mccoy

  18. Lamarcus Says:

    I don’t want to hear he creates double teams cuz it’s still ineffective

  19. yrbndr Says:

    When the majority of the votes are from peers and coaches I have to concede to them. They see and know more than we do… find something else to get angry about!

  20. Buccaneer scotty Says:

    Congratulations brother!!!

  21. DB55 Says:

    Amit Patel

    Yea but he makes twice as much as Atkins AND has a much nicer smile, so …..

  22. gotbbucs Says:

    Pro Bowl DT’s very obviously do not equal wins.

  23. unbelievable Says:

    Well those other 3 guy’s teams have much worse records than us… yet I doubt a faction of their fanbase wants to run them all out of town…

    McCoy had a terrible game Sunday night… but so did most of the team. Get over it.

  24. Buc believer Says:

    That announcement is like drinking watered down cool-aid

  25. V.I.P Says:

    Give Gerald a break. If this man is playing on a bad foot. Takes on double teams. What do you expect the numbers to be. People want to see results in numbers. If his peers speak highly of his play. How can we as fans knock him so bad?? C’mon buc fans! Damn!

  26. Pickgrin Says:

    “No. 93 is deserving”

    Agree Joe. Congrats GMC!!

  27. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Bitches will bitch, but real men will keep making Pro Bowls. Congrats. Well deserved.

  28. Rob Says:

    Well some would say that Dallas game was his most important game to date and he didn’t show up. He is good but not great. That’s all that can be said about him.
