Stats Surge For Gerald McCoy

November 21st, 2017

Man, Joe is loving watching Gerald McCoy against the Dolphins over and over. The man was an animal — and he dealt with a nasty first-half eye gouge.

McCoy also is racking up a special season.

Yes, the Bucs are 4-6 and that’s bad. Nothing special about that, even if they are on an encouraging two-game winning streak.

But McCoy is approaching rare numbers for himself.

McCoy has 25 solo tackles with six games remaining this season. He’s only had 30 in a season once in his career, 35 in 2013. McCoy’s 10 assists this season also represents the first time he’s cracked double digits in that category since 2013.

It’s great to see McCoy grinding along. He’s in his prime at 29 and continues to fight through injuries, including the kind you have after you’ve played 104 games in the trenches like he has.

Perhaps next year is the season the Bucs find him a special edge rusher to team with. The last good one he had now has 37 1/2 sacks, two Pro Bowl trips and a Super Bowl ring with the Seahawks.

    McCoy is a HOF’r.

  7. Bucsfanman Says:


  8. Bucsfanman Says:

    You’ll have to elaborate on that ’78! I’d say that’s a bit of a stretch.

  9. Lamarcus Says:

    Gmc is garbage. When u call POTUS a “coward” ……… for leading a country but gmc cant even lead a tampa defense??? Gmc is weird

  10. Bucsfanman Says:

    Lamarcus- Did I miss something or have you taken this convo sideways?!

  11. Lamarcus Says:

    The only defensive players who should get SOME kinda kudos:

    J evans
    The man covering Vh3
    and that is it. Not a 1 game stud against the quitting dolphins

  12. Bucsince78 Says:

    His work is not complete. It was hard to shine this year when your old starting QB was none as a three and out/ turn-over machine. Puts too much stress on the D

  13. ATrain Says:

    Joe Bucs Fan has changed its name to

    McCoy Biggest Fan

    Y’all slam me and TMAX for calling him out

    GMC played a great Second Half

    Now can you GMC loves look at the things he is NoT doing and call him out

    Joe hasn’t written one bad article on GMC
    He has on every other player. Why? Simple. McCoy is a good football player. –Joe

  14. Bucsfanman Says:

    McDonald? For what? Being average?
    Agreed on the rest though. LVD is killing it since returning!

  15. DB55 Says:

    Is gmc even the best 3tech in the division? I guess it depends on which stat you use.

  16. Bucsfanman Says:

    ATrain- It’s not personal. I like the banter. I’ll go so far as to offer how ridiculous GMC looked on that 69 yard running play where he was “escorted” stage left by the Miami o-line.

  17. 813bucboi Says:

    this would be the perfect time to trade him imo…..

    not because I don’t like him, but because I think he holds more value to us in form of draft picks….we could find a trade partner and get a couple picks to fill some of the holes….

    trade 1 DT and draft a DE and a tackle…..or 2 DE’s….or a DE and DT….I mean damn try something….I rather get rid of a player a year or 2 too early than a year or 2 too late…..GO BUCS!!!!

  18. DB55 Says:

    where he was “escorted” stage left by the Miami o-line.
    This happens on 95% of his plays. #icecream

    He held his gap on 2 plays Sunday to my shock and dismay and we held them from getting a first down on both plays. What a concept.

  19. unbelievable Says:

    2 plays only DB? Really?

    I want some of whatever you and Lamarcus are smoking… and I say that living out here with that Cali fire

  20. DB55 Says:

    2 dos


  21. unbelievable Says:

    Haha nice. Love me some GSC

    Sour D for me this week.

  22. Pepsi Says:

    SO youre saying we can get good trade value out of him again? Excellent

  23. Capt.Tim Says:

    Watching McCoy dominate in the trenches, has been the vest part of this season.
    He has distanced himself from every other DT in The NFL, proving once again that he is the best DT on the planet.

    Soon the coaches and players will select him to yet another Probowl. The accolades he has accumulated will certainly guarantee his bust wlii be immortalized in Canton.

    McCoys legend and likeness will live on, long after Tmaxipad and db(IQ)55’s Burger King aprons have turned to dust.

    Normally, I would say that our coach and GM have done a decent job.
    Especially Jason L.

    But their inability to get a DE should get them both Fired, just as soon as the season ends. It is just inexcusable

    In an unrelated topic- has anyone noticed that Antony Auclair was on the field alot Sunday. So far, he has been doing Luke Stockers job.
    Soon, I think he will start to be a factor in the passing game. This guy will be a very good TE

    Will Clarke has been making the most of his time. He is improving at Pass rushing. He is keeping Will Gholstein in the bench during passing downs

  24. Zwak Says:

    Glad he showed up last week..

  25. DB55 Says:


    No love for Kwon? Int and 8 tackles.

  26. DB55 Says:

    Capt Tim smokes white crystal like rock formations with a toothless 68 yr old man on a boat while drinking his own your-in out a natty ice can.

  27. Howard Cosell Says:


  28. Lamarcus Says:


    Kwon has a good game but not season. I love consistent and ba Lance performance. Not 1 game while we had to kick a fg to a quitting team.

  29. Bucsfanman Says:

    I noticed Auclair too Capt. Still wish we had a real-deal FB though.

    Hey DB, at least he makes it to the other side of the LOS. Ayers is too busy getting blown the F up by TEs all the time.

  30. Buc believer Says:

    McCoy king of the stat sheet!

  31. Joseph Mamma Says:

    He is pretty good. He is no Adrian Clayborn though.

  32. Tony 12" Pepperoni Says:

    First time in his whole career!! Wippy do

  33. DB55 Says:

    Ayers is too busy getting blown the F up by TEs all edible hathe time.
    YEA! WELL AT LEAST WHEN HE GETS BLOWN UP GET GETS BLOWN UP 110%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lmao

    Yo do you remember when gmc tried to play fb in the ps and got ROCKED by a safety or lb? That chit was hilarious. Needless to say he hasn’t asked to play offense anymore. 😭😂

    “I do not like getting hit, it hurts, I’d rather be an actor” – the unincredible holk

  34. Ryan K Says:

    Gerald is a beast !

  35. JimmyJack Says:

    McCoy looked like he was done in the first 7 or so games. Great turnaround…….The sad thing is when you look at the plays when Gerald got blocked out and there was a whole lot of nuthin in the pass rush dept………One man shows don’t work very often.

    Gerald will get game planned and nullified at some point again and our passrush will be exposed again……….Then the Haters will have their scapegoat for the looming loss.

  36. Doctor Stroud Says:

    This is a cross-post, but GMC has the highest number of sacks among all DTs since 2013.

  37. Lamarcus Says:

    Easy to defend

    When gmc burst oline man will move to his side and wipe/clean him out for big gains and big holes. Easy gameplan for gmc. He is not even “doubled” as much. Signs of the times man

  38. BigHogHaynes Says:


  39. Lamarcus Says:

    We can’t find a de? That is bs. That’s our problem 5 years now? Rightttttt….. I think no special de wants to play here. That’s more believable. 2 gm in 5 years and NOT 1? Just 1? But we throw cash trunks at djx, ward, baker, ayes, grimes etc. But no sack master. Hmm mm

    Come on man. No one wants to play next to gmc? That should be a de dream or nah? Gmc ran Aaron donald out of town before he was drafted says alot. I’m taking the high road. Gmc does no recruiting. He wants ALL the sacks to himself and last week proved it. Makes him look good not the bucs.

  40. BigMacAttack Says:

    I was a GMC fan but he’s too nice and gets blown up too often. I’m in the trade him camp if you get good value. I hear you that his tackles are up but isn’t that what he gets paid to do, and paid more than his return on investment. I’m happy they beat two garbage teams. Sadly with 6 games to go, 5 are almost certain losses. They will finish 5-11 and that is pretty sad.

  41. teacherman777 Says:

    Teacherman loves GMC!

    He is a man of love, light, and laughter!

    He is a saint!

    F- Suh! He is garbage next to GMC!

    We (the true fans) love you bro!!!

  42. Buc believer Says:

    McCoy is the poster boy for the phrase “stats are for losers!”

  43. TonyC Says:

    Go back and look at the 97,98,99 interior line stats. Culpepper and Sapp were getting like 60 total tackles and averaging 8-10 sacks. That’s 2 players essentially mirroring GMC’s stats.

  44. Capt.Tim Says:

    Hey db(IQ) 55,
    Dont make fun of my guided boat cruises.
    You and you Burger King Co-workers have been paying $25 a piece for that tour all season!

  45. Ptwalk Says:

    McCoy is arguably, next to Aaron Donald, the best DT in the game and has been for yrs. Those that disagree really don’t know much about x’s and o’s. You guys compare him to Sapp and none compares to Sapp.

  46. MadMax Says:

    ^ Whoa, Aaron Donald? Come on man….
